The Review

An uneven burn that kept with the casa de garcia connecticut for the first 1 inch – no matter how I tried to correct it with my torch lighter.  But..it had a smooth, easy draw, going for it,

At this point the flavor was very peppery with a bit of a strong kick. (Reminded me slightly of a hoyo de monterrey)

Once past the beginning first inch, the ash held well & the initial peppery flavor tempered down nicely.

 

Good flavor right here. It was much milder at this point, than in the beginning of the cigar. Producing a mellow connecticut shade characteristic.

Ok this value priced Belicoso turned out to be MUCH more than I expected. The draw was consistently great throughout the whole stick. And for a Mixed Filler cigar, this ash really hung on-even on a windy Florida day!

The mixed filler couldn’t hold past the first 2.5 inches, but it was very impressive as long as it did.  Actually at this point is where the flavor became nice, rich, smooth and slightly creamy – very enjoyable, actually!

At this point, I was pretty much done with it. Could have gone further, but at this price, why bother!

  1. Good flavor for 65% of the cigar
  2. For not all Long Filler, Ash held on for 2.5 inch segments
  3. Attractive Connecticut Shade wrapper
  4. Great Price

The Verdict?

A Very Good Daily / Work / Fishing / Utility cigar, that I would not hesitate to share with a fishing buddy! This is a very popular item right now and I can see why. Actually these are comparatively fresh smokes, in regards to the average 2-3 year vintage hand rolleds.  Just a month of maturing on the Casa de Garcia Connecticut Belicoso would quite be interesting.
