Series '55' White Label Connecticut from Victor Sinclair
Size: Robusto 5 x 50
Wrapper – Connecticut shade
Binder – Ecuadorian
Filler – Nicaraguan/Dominican/Honduran
Coming to us from the June 2022 My Monthly Cigars Box, this well rolled cigar is covered in a thin, light brown and patina wrapper. The preignition aromas are an interesting candied cherry as a straight cut leads us to a medium draw resistance.
Getting into the body of the 1/3, we see a consistency alongside a mild vanilla reminiscent of finishing a vanilla iced cream cone (with residual vanilla on it). Into the center of the cigar and still consistent. Ultra smooth and creamy with the slightest introduction of a mild pepper. The burn has no issues and a medium gray ash builds dimes on a wavering ash fringe.
Into the 3/3 and still quite consistent, with a strength movement to mild plus (bordering medium). Deep within the retro and finish, there is an extremely subtle floral/eucalyptus quality that blends well with the creamy vanilla wafer and cashew butter notes.
Did I mention the finish lasts forever?
