esteban Welcome back to another pair of cigar reviews on Puff.com. Today’s reviews begin with the mild Esteban Carreras Connecticut Robusto and conclude with the slightly spicy Punch Magnum.

Esteban Carreras Connecticut Robusto

If you are not familiar with the Esteban Carreras brand, you are not alone. A little research on the brand tells me that they produce cigars made of high quality tobaccos that are produced in Esteli, Nicaragua and Santiago, Dominican Republic. Other than that, I’ve never heard much about it, so my foray into its Connecticut Robusto territory is a first. I happen to enjoy Connecticut-wrapped cigars from time to time, especially in the morning. Hopefully this one will be worth its price tag and will give me another mild cigar to add to my smoking arsenal.

The Esteban Carreras Connecticut Robusto measures 5 x 50. Other sizes in the line include the 6 x 50 Gran Corona, 6 ¼ x 52 Belicoso, and 7 x 48 Churchill. The cigar has a filler blend of Dominican tobacco. The binder is of the Ecuadorian Sumatra variety, and a seven-year-old Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper tops it all off. As is usually the case with Connecticut cigars, this one is mild to medium-bodied in strength.

The first thing I notice when looking at the Connecticut Robusto is its large band. The black, white, and silver colors really stand out against the cigar and look good. The Esteban Carreras name and logo are on full display here. The cigar itself has a rather dry appearance. There are a few medium veins that dot the light brown wrapper. The cigar feels firm to the touch and has zero soft spots. Overall, the construction appears to be solid. Before lighting, there’s a sweet aroma and a nutty taste that lead me to believe this will be one smooth cigar.

Once lit, the Esteban Carreras Connecticut Robusto burns without any issues. The draw is just right. There’s plenty of thick smoke and the cigar burns slowly. The burn stays even from beginning to end without the need for touchups. There are also no re-lights. The ash is solid. We are good to go in this department.
