Havanas have the best flavor to me, bar none. Their cost depends on where they are being purchased from.If I smoked again I think I'd smoke Robustos and Rothschilds 95% of the time. The 6 X 52s were too much of a good thing. An hour's smoke is a just right good thing.
And although I'd want to give Cubans a serious whirl, I'd rebel at the cost. They might be worth every nickel and dime, but I couldn't bear the thought that other locales offered a product as good or better for less.
I personally find U.S. Connecticut Shade-Grown wrappers to be a bit bitter and mild for my tastes, but I enjoy a good broadleaf maduro from time to time, or a cigar that uses broadleaf as a binder or filler leaf. Cuban-seed varietals grown in CT have also gotten more popular, and Cigar Aficionado's #1 cigar of 2020 (for what it's worth), the EPC Pledge, featured a CT Habano wrapper. Pretty cool, I think.Very few people who don't smoke cigars regularly realize that Connecticut grows a major crop of cigar leaf, don't connect it with the tobacco belt at all.
I've come full circle and have begun to really enjoy their Cafe line. I had the good fortune recently to have one that was about 20 years old and it had aged magnificently. It reminded me of a Fuente Angel's Share a lot, especially with the unique creamy lemon note.
