Urbano Connecticut

urbanoconn

Here’s a new release that should attract smokers who enjoy mild to medium-bodied cigars. It’s called the Urbano Connecticut, and it’s the latest and mildest release to date from the boutique brand of premium cigars.

If you are intrigued by the Urbano line and want to try something higher up the strength ladder than the Connecticut, take a look at the medium-bodied Sumatra or the medium to full-bodied Corojo.

The Urbano Connecticut’s interior consists of Dominican filler and binder tobaccos that have been triple-fermented naturally. The natural fermentation process supposedly reduces the tobacco’s nicotine, natural starches, and sugars to offer a more refined smoke and eliminate the sometimes queasy or lightheaded feeling one might get while smoking that comes from so-called untamed alkaloids.

The leaves used for the cigar’s filler are arranged using the traditional entubado style from Cuba. This offers some advantages, as described in the official press release from Urbano: “Although more labor-intensive, it eliminates the two top smokers’ complaints. First, hard or plugged draw, caused by the folded or twisted leaves, seen in conventional bunching. Secondly, the ligero is accurately centered by eye, avoiding off-center burn … seen more with commercial bunching. When building the bunch, each base filler leaf is rolled lengthwise, resembling soda straws. The buncher arranges them in a circle around one or more similarly-tubed ligero leaves, visibly centered. With the smoke passing freely through each tubed leaf from foot to head, and the dead-centered ligero, the smoker is assured of an easy, uniform smoke.” Completing the composition is a silky Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. All of the Connecticut’s tobaccos are aged for two years prior to construction. Once complete, the cigars are aged for an additional four months.

The Urbano Connecticut is currently being offered as a Robusto, Torpedo, Churchill, or a new 6 x 60 vitola that falls in line with the rising popularity of cigars that feature larger ring gauges. Each cigar comes packaged in a cellophane tube, and those looking to buy in bulk can purchase the Connecticut in cedar boxes of 20. Available only at brick and mortar shops, the Urbano Connecticut has a suggested retail price of $5 to $5.50 per single, depending on the size. You can also purchase the Connecticut directly from Urbano by visiting the company’s website, www.urbanocigars.com.
