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.

    B.G., you are correct, the other wrappers are better tasting. They have recently come out with robusto size as well as lancero and a 6 x 60 in all wrappers. Also, the band is supposed to be smokable.
