Reviewer 1: HeavyMetal

Rating: C

Construction Comments:
Pale Conn Shade wrapper w/ a couple heavy veins, solid roll.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Mild aroma and light tobacco flavor
Burn:
Straight burn with solid off-white ash
Drink:
Starbucks Frappacino
Smoking Notes:
Very mild wheat, cream and light tobacco notes with an underlying vegetal note and some sweetness on the finish. This was not a well-balanced blend and the vegetal notes were a bit too prominent suggesting that the aging wasn't what it should be.
Overall Experience and Rating:
I’m not a fan of mild Conn Shade smokes so I’m probably being too harsh, but I’ll give it a C. There weren't any really bad flavors, but then there wasn’t anything really good about this cigar either. There are many other CS smokes that are far better.
 
Reviewer 2: Iceman

Rating: C

Construction Comments:
Light brown wrapper, probably a Connecticut leaf. Smooth construction with very little tooth and a slight oily sheen. It was a very firm cigar that clipped very cleanly. A robusto size that was 5” long and about a 50 ring.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
This cigar had a sweet spicy smell.
Burn:
I toasted the foot and lit with a single flame torch. It lit easily and also burned evenly. This cigar has a solid grey ash that held together for a long time. No re-light was needed. The burn rate was a little bit on the quick side which surprised me a bit given the solid the construction of this cigar.
Drink:
Coors Light
Smoking Notes:
This cigar had a woody taste that left a bitter spice taste on my tongue. It was also a very bland cigar. Lots of smoke with each draw but not a lot of flavor. Not at all complex. Very mild. I found the finish, or after taste, to be a bit bitter. It did gain more flavor further into the cigar but still remained pretty bland.
Overall Experience and Rating:
Not really a cigar I liked because it was so bland and lacked any real flavor which was surprising given all the smoke I got with each draw. I like mild cigars usually but this one was just too mild for me. Not really bad but nothing to write home about either. I am not sure I would smoke this one again if given a choice. Overall Rating: C
 
Reviewer 3: Cycleman

Rating: B-

Construction Comments:
This cigar looked well constructed. It did have a soft feel to it and I tend to like it a bit tighter. Initial cut was easy and clean.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Mild aroma
Burn:
The burn really amazed me for a Connecticut. It was definitely a well-rolled cigar as the ash didn't fall until the halfway mark and I was at the beach and the wind didn't even knock it off. It had a nice burn, also. Even and never traveled.
Drink:
 
Smoking Notes:
 
Overall Experience and Rating:
The only negative to this stick was the flavor. It basically had very little to none. This is the main reason I do not smoke Connecticut's very often. Reminds me of smoking paper (Not that I do that very often). This would be a great morning smoke for someone that enjoys a very very light flavor. This is a C cigar, but because of the wonderful roll and burn and ash it made the B- for me.
 
Reviewer 4: Denahue

Rating: C+

Construction Comments:
Smooth wrapper with one minor vein. The wrapper looked dry. The construction was firm. The cut was clean, and easy.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
First draw was clear. Pre-light impressions (scents) were Woodsy and Cedar.
Burn:
The initial light was even, after toasting the foot. It burned slightly uneven for about a half an inch. The Cigar straightened to a clean even burn that lasted through out the smoke. The first draw, was clear and full of smoke. The draw remained clear all of the way through. The ash was medium gray. Even when I had to answer the phone and the cigar remained in the ashtray for about 5 minutes there was no need to relight, or touch up the smoke. The resting aroma was, light, and woody.
Drink:
Water
Smoking Notes:
The taste was very light, with a slight sting as it was exhaled through the nose. The aroma was a slight seaside smell, and to me had a bit of salt twang. It started as just a slight taste of leather, and cedar taste, About an inch in it developed just a hint of cream, and a touch of citrus. (More lime than lemon to me.)
Overall Experience and Rating:
A very light and easy taste. I would think this would go well with a morning cup of coffee, or a dry sherry for after dinner. A good smoke, but a bit on the light side for me. I'd keep a few around for the above reasons, but I don't think I would add it permanently to my rotation. I'd give it a C+ Overall. Better for someone who likes the lighter smokes.
