Di Fazio Connecticut
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut
Filler: Nicaragua & Honduras
Size: Torpedo (6.12 x 52)
Construction: I always find my self staring at the blond silky wrapper as it sits nestled between the dark maduros in the humidor. The Di Fazio Connecticut is smooth with minimal veins that can barley be felt with the fingers. There is just the right amount of tobacco that gives the Di Fazio Connecticut some weight but leaves a slightly spongy feel.
Draw: With just the right amount of resistance this Di Fazio Connecticut creates mountains of smoke. This is the type of cigar that can be punched, cut or even bitten (if your in a jam).
Burn: The Di Fazio Connecticut has no issues burning down to the nub. On some of the Di Fazio Connecticut cigars the burn became slightly jagged but self correcting. So if you are a perfectionist you may want to keep a lighter near by. The ash was thick and white but some of the stogies did a little “self-ashing” at every inch to inch and a half. Overall I would say the Di Fazio Connecticut did a great job burning and we did nothing extra to correct the jagged lines (again self correcting).
Flavor: It’s always tough to sit down and go into detail on any type of mild, smooth Connecticut cigar. The reason being is that the good cigars, such as the Di Fazio Connecticut, will always be constant while enhancing the other flavor profiles introduced with beverages or food.
We can say that the Di Fazio Connecticut has a very unique taste you may not find on other cigars in this category. It starts out with a grassy taste that finishes with a creamy smoke. You will then get a smooth wheat profile that again finishes with a creamy smoke that coats your palate.
So in short the Di Fazio Connecticut is a grassy/wheat consistent cigar that produces lots of creamy smooth smoke.
Final Verdict: Di Fazio Connecticut retails in the $7-8 range. This is truly a unique Connecticut cigar that stands out in the market and is a gem to keep in the humidor. You can smoke this in the morning, to enhance any drinks or when you feel experiencing something unique.A new smoker will enjoy the smoothness and creamy smoke while the advanced will cherish its unique wheat like profile. Buy a box (24) or you can even buy the half boxes (12) Di Fazio makes. You will not be bored, you will not be sorry and this is a Connecticut you have to pick up before the secrete is out.
