Blanco Liga Exclusiva de Familia Connecticut Shade

Father and son made "The Exclusive Blend of the Family"  available to the public with the release of these unique Nicaraguan based cigars which showcase not only the skill of both master blenders but also gives a look into the differences between the tastes of the elder Cesar and the younger David.   Both blends are different yet utilize the famous Nicaraguan tobaccos the family is so well known for in the binder and filler.  What sets them apart is the choice of wrapper, sitting them on opposite sides of the strength spectrum. One milder, one heavier.  And so much more in between! The Connecticut Shade Liga is Cesar's creation and boasts a U.S. Connecticut Shade seed leaf that is grown in the rich Honduran Talanga Valley.  A mild - medium bodied cigar with creamy notes, hints of oak, sweet earth, dry tobacco and a slight pepper kick with a long smooth finish. As with most Nicaraguan based Connecticut wrapped cigars, this is a smoke that someone who appreciates a mild cigar that doesn't lack anything in the flavor department.
