Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Connecticut Robusto

Initial Thoughts:

I don't always smoke light, Connecticut cigars, but when I do, I always hope they're delicious. And today, the Casa Cuevas Connecticut is on deck, and I hope it delivers.

This cigar is very light in color – a serious deviation from what I normally smoke. And, Casa Cuevas is a brand I'm not totally familiar with. However, I'm cautiously optimistic. The wrapper is smooth and a little fuzzy, but the Casa Cuevas Connecticut looks to be well-built.

Final Thoughts:

After too short of time, I finished the Casa Cuevas Connecticut. The build quality was perfect. The draw was fantastic. But there were a couple of burn issues, though nothing major or that reduced my enjoyment of the cigar.

Because this cigar hit all the right marks – flavorful, good draw, decent burn – and still came in at a price point (well) under $10, the Casa Cuevas Connecticut earns a well-deserved CigarScore of 5. I would happily recommend this cigar to anyone looking for a good stick and who isn't afraid to try a cigar that's a little on the lighter side.
