Connecticut recommendations

Looking for some mild-med body, full flavor, rich, smooth, creamy, buttery smooth connecticuts. Nutty flavors, sweet vanilla, coffee.. Any suggestions?

    Oliva CT Reserve.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    Love those. Also, the san lotanos, xikar hc's, griffins, AVO... for something a little different the san cristobal elegancias are awesome. Interesting spice and flavor that I think is really unique. Mario palominos have a really good sweetness to them too.

    These plus the Angelenos is a another great one. CLE conn is another good one. If you can find one the J. Grotto Silk is an excellent one, I have only found them in one B&M around here. I wasn't a fan of the San Cristobal, it wasn't bad but just doesn't suit my tastes, but if you're looking for a different kind of connie give it a go.

    I'd add Perdomo Champagne Reserve Connecticut to the list. Simply awesome. I bought a robusto around Feb, and just smoked it 2 weeks ago. It was so good that I'm contemplating buying a box. And I normally hate Connies since it's like smoking air...

    Good runners up in addition to what was listed by the posters above would be Room 101 Connecticut and Camacho Connecticut.

    Also, do not discount the Ccom House Blend American Label. It's very good and is actually all long filler unlike the rest of the House Blends. All American tobaccos as well!

    I knew I forgot a couple! I just had a new camacho connie and it was fantastic. Room 101 and perdomo are great too.

    Yeah, those SC Elegencia's are good Forgot about those. And I love me some AVO, but pricier than the Olivas, which I like a lot.

    I second the perdomo suggestion. One of my top 5 sticks :)
    Life is like a blind fiver. You never know what you're gonna get.
  • They say its a "starter" cigar...but I really would recommend Macanudo...their connecticut line anyways...whatever its called. Don Diego PlayBoy Editions are good...the original not the rehash. But those are not easy to find anymore.

    Rocky Patel Vintage 99

    not a bad connie right there!

    The cigar.com expert picks are connecticuts right now. I've had all but the Perdomo and would recommend checking that deal out. The LGC is a definite winner in my book.

    IMHO:

    1) MOW Virtue (tie)
    1) Angelenos by Fuente (tie)
    3) Monte White (I'd never pay MSRP for them though)
    4) Camacho Connecticut
    5) LGC Artesanos Retro Especial

    * I have a new address as of 3/24/18 *

    I second this. Also, the Gurkha Symphony is a great conny.

    I really enjoy the Rocky Patel Connecticut.

    I can really enjoy some good conns. Gran Habano #1 is great. Perdomo Champagnes. Ramon Bueso Odysseys. If you haven't tried any of these, give them a shot.
  • MorganGeoMorganGeo Brandon, MSPosts: 2,241 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I enjoy the CLE connecticuts as well. Very pleasant smoke

    The AKA Conny is great and the AVO XO, Gurkha Symphony, MOW Virtue, all good!
