Today we are taking a look at The Griffin’s Connecticut Robusto. It is a 5 x 50 constructed of a blend of Dominican long fillers and binder, all wrapped up in a smooth and dry Connecticut Wrapper. Known as the little brother to Davidoff as it is produced in the same factory.
The construction on this particular cigar is on point with no mistakes. Solid pack, evenly distributed with no soft spots and a good triple cap.
The unlit draw is a bit on the firm side. It has a dry hay flavor. With a good toast. The stogie burned evenly and developed into a creamy smoke with the slightest bit of pepper. A quickly fading finish brings you back for another creamy and woody puff. There is an almost chalky mouthfeel from this mild smoking cigar that makes a good pair with a glass of sweet brandy.
Not being as expensive as his big brother, the Griffin’s comes in at about eight bucks and is worth every penny.
