Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Connecticut Collection Robusto

Initial Thoughts:

While working at my local lounge, a friend gave me a Nestor Miranda Connecticut Collection Robusto to try. And, being the accommodating person that I am, and knowing that the gift is as much as a treat for the giver as it is for the receiver, I said, “Okay!” and lit it up.

What we have with this cigar is a blend of several countries' worth of tobacco, all wrapped in an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper. The wrapper has the distinctive “peach fuzz” of the Connecticut leaf, and after lighting it up, I noticed flavors of creamy Nicaraguan tobacco along with light citrus.

Final Thoughts:

Despite having a label that tore the cigar, the Nestor Miranda Connecticut Collection Robusto is a good little cigar. The flavors were good, the draw was great, and the burn was even. Oh, and at just under $8, the price is right too.

However, for about the same price and for similar flavors, I think I might prefer a RoMa Craft Intemperance EC XVIII. But maybe not, since this Nestor is a little lighter on the flavors and might be preferable if you're not sure you want a fuller cigar with more Nicaraguan tobaccos.

All that said, the Nestor Miranda Connecticut Collection robusto earns a CigarScore 4, and I'd smoke one again.
