The Connecticut Bertha performs well once it is in action. It offers a good draw, and it produces solid white ash. The burn stays even throughout, with only a few slight touch-ups that are necessary. No re-lighting is needed.

The flavors experienced are pretty good, and definitely smooth. The cigar begins with a woody flavor reminiscent of its cold taste. It also has a good deal of sweetness to it that is pleasant. Some notes of earth join the mix, and so do some creamy flavors. Cedar is another flavor that is evident, although not dominant. This is without a doubt a milder cigar that will not overpower you.

The LegendArio Connecticut Bertha is an enjoyable cigar, although not a memorable one. There is not much to complain about, as it looks inviting, and burns well without many issues. The flavors are good too, if you prefer smoother cigars. It does not hit the memorable note because nothing stands out about the cigar in particular. Maybe that is not such a bad thing, though. It definitely receives a recommendation for medium-bodied fans, as well as beginning smokers who do not want to be bullied by their cigars while smoking them. A single goes for around $6, which is not too bad considering the quality of the stick. It is also available in packs of 5, and boxes of 25. Considering the price and its lack of an overpowering nature, it may be worth purchasing in its box quantity, as it is one cigar that can be enjoyed on a frequent basis. A cup of morning coffee would be a good complement.

Although not outstanding, the LegendArio Connecticut Bertha is a quality smoke, earning it a rating of 3 out of 4 stars.

J. Fuego Origen Toro


The Origen line from J. Fuego Cigars is one that has been released to the public on a very limited scale. Considering that brand owner Jesus Fuego comes from a Cuban family with an extensive background in the cigar industry, one can expect a quality smoke. Is the Origen up to snuff? Let's light one up and see...

The J. Fuego Origen measures 6 x 50 in its Toro size. It is offered in another size as well: the 6 1/8x 52 Belicoso. The cigar's filler is divided between Corojo tobacco from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. It has a Costa Rican Corojo binder, and a Brazilian Corojo wrapper. The Origen is considered to fall in between medium and full-bodied.
