After exploring concepts such as Nicaragua, super premium, and even affordability, Cohiba now offers cigar enthusiasts their unique approach to Connecticut Shade. Cohiba Connecticut features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper that was specifically grown to provide an aesthetically pleasing, nearly seamless presentation. This leaf is backed by a diverse binder/filler recipe, allowing for an atypical, contemporary profile when compared to more classical Connecticut offerings.
Our agronomists partnered with an independent grower in Ecuador’s Los Rios province to produce a silky and lustrous Ecuadoran Connecticut Shade wrapper. Unlike cloth-covered fields that shield the tobacco from the blistering sun in Connecticut, this special wrapper is grown beside Ecuador’s Vinces River and beneath the thick, natural cloud cover that blankets the region. The volcanic soil yielded a wrapper that was intentionally developed for its aesthetic qualities, with veins that are barely perceptible. Looks aside, the wrapper is ideal for blending, as it maximizes the filler and binder leaves.
