Despite its distinction as a mild cigar, Gran Habano did a good job of packing a decent amount of flavor into the Connecticut #1 Robusto. It begins with plenty of sweetness that dominates the first third. Some mild spice appears in the second third, and the cigar is also very creamy at this point. The final third is characterized by notes of cedar and toast. In short, this is one very mellow stogie.

It may have not been the most impressive cigar ever during the pre-light inspection, but the Gran Habano Connecticut #1 Robusto was surprisingly decent. The solid burn and flavor variety made the smoking experience enjoyable. Who would enjoy the Connecticut #1 Robusto? Anyone looking for a mild cigar that remains mellow without being completely monotonous. Beginning smokers would probably enjoy it as well. If you are looking for something with power and kick, look elsewhere. This is a good morning newspaper and coffee cigar, and not something you would really look to light up after dinner. The cigar comes in boxes of 20, and a single sells for around $4 to $5. Pick it up in a box, and you can get the Connecticut #1 Robusto for an average of about $3.50 per stick.

The Gran Habano Connecticut #1 Robusto earns a rating of three out of four stars.

Berger & Argenti Entubar Quad Maduro Corona Macho

If you like cigars that are unique, then you should find the Entubar Quad Maduro Corona Macho from Berger & Argenti to be quite appealing. This box-pressed cigar is made in the Cuban “entubar” technique that helps improve air flow from the foot to the head. The line's Maduro version was developed as an extension to the previously released Entubar

The Entubar Quad Maduro Corona Macho measures 4 5/8 x 48. Three other sizes are available as well: the 5 3/8 x 54 Robusto, the 6 7/8 x 56 Torpedo, and the 7 5/8 x 54 Double Corona. The cigar's filler is a blend of Nicaraguan Cuban Seed Viso and Ligero and Dominican Seco tobaccos. The binder is Nicaraguan, and the wrapper is of the Nicaraguan Maduro variety that has been aged for eight years. The cigar is listed as being full-bodied in strength.

Might I ask what you mean by a "cold" taste? Is it similar in effect to what you get from mint gum?
