Quick Smoke: NHC ELO Series 13 Last Breath Connecticut Sol

21 Jun 2015

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


New Havana Cigars (NHC) has always had a close relationship with Tatuaje owner Pete Johnson (NHC owner Dan Welsh is a partner with Johnson in L’Atelier) which has always made its house blends notable. This particular limited release was a cigar rolled in 2013 but with four varieties each with a different wrapper added only recently, including this Connecticut Sol wrapper, which is also used on the Cabaiguan Guapo.  The cigar is medium-bodied with a combination of coffee, black tea, clove, and cedar. Construction is perfect. While $9 (the cigars come in 5-packs for $45) is a bit more than many house blends, this is a standout, complex smoke.

    Thanks for the review! I’m really digging these cigars right now.. My favorite is the Sancti Spiritus blend , followed by the Connecticut Sol. Unfortunately I was unable to obtain the Sumatra wrapped vitola. If you can, I would suggest purchasing the sampler at New Havana Cigars. It will not disappoint.
