Now it’s onto the interesting part – the flavor. The cigar kicks off with a sweet citrus flavor that’s very smooth and relaxing. The citrus is soon joined by a buttery flavor that’s even better. The second third is where the spice appears that Booth promised. It’s not overwhelming by any means, but it does let you know that it’s there. The spiciness continues into the final third, until it dissipates and gives way to leather and more of the delicious butter.

Although I’m not a veteran when it comes to Room101 cigars, the brand definitely caught my attention with the Connecticut 305C. It was as smooth as I expected, and the little spicy kick was a nice departure from the norm. I wouldn’t call it overly complex, but it’s definitely enjoyable. The Connecticut 305C comes in boxes of 25. A single retails in the $7 to $8 range. While it’s far from cheap, I definitely recommend giving one a try if you enjoy Connecticut wrappers but want to sample something a bit different. Beginners and experienced smokers alike can both partake in the spicy, yet buttery goodness.

The Room101 Connecticut 305C earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

La Flor Dominicana Salomon

If you enjoy large cigars that pack a punch and come equipped with a mega dose of flavor, you’ll want to read this review on the Salomon from La Flor Dominicana. Released by Litto Gomez in 2008, the Salomon has received high ratings for its construction and flavor. Luckily, I have plenty of time on my hands to enjoy this huge stogie, so let’s get to it.

The La Flor Dominicana Salomon measures in at a whopping 7 x 64. The cigar’s filler and binder are made up of vintage tobaccos that were grown in 2004 and 2005 at La Flor Dominicana’s farm in La Canela, Dominican Republic. Concealing the vintage binder and filler is an aged Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. If you’ve had experience with the brand’s cigars in the past, it should come as no surprise that the Salomon is listed as being full-bodied in strength.
