Cigar Review: 300 Hands Connecticut Petit Edmundo by Southern Draw
When I saw the 300 Hands Connecticut Petit Edmundo in the December 2019 box from Luxury Cigar Club, I wasn't quite sure what it was. However, as soon I heard that this little cigar was made by Southern Draw, I was excited.
The 300 Hands Connecticut from Southern Draw is a short cigar with a perfect Connecticut wrapper. Seriously, this thing looks flawless. After torching the end, the flavors were of wheat and grass, with roasted honey on the retrohale.

After spending just over an hour with the 300 Hands Connecticut Petit Edmundo, I have to say, it tasted a little “young” or “immature.” I think this stick would be better if it sat, aging in a humidor, for a couple of years (or at least several months). So, that's what I'll do with my other one.
The construction quality of this cigar was perfect. The draw was perfect; the burn was almost perfect. However, the flavors became a little harsh in the final third.
Because I'd smoke this again, but since it wasn't quite as good as say, the RoMa Craft Intemperance EC XVIII, the 300 Hands Connecticut Petit Edmundo earns a CigarScore 3. That said, I hope to review it again in a couple of years.
