Leaf by Oscar Connecticut Cigar Review – This 6×50 stick features a dark tan smooth oily supple wrapper under an outer leaf taking the place of cello with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a stretch thin wet look, triple cap, minor discoloration spots, a soft even pack and faint tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful smooth mild earthy notes that built to a medium through the finish with a hint of pepper flavor but no zing or bite. The first third burns well but fast, going to a solid medium body with plain flavors of straight tobacco and earth. The 1/2 way point comes at a quick 25 minutes cruising down the burnline with great draw and smoke production, up to a medium-full body. Straight tobacco remains the core but the earth drops replaced by a warm slightly minty wood through the long finish. The ash holds for 1/2 the cigar. Ending at just 45 minutes the last third goes to a warm slightly bitter wood taking over.
