It really hasn’t been until this year where Casa Fernandez’s TABSA factory began releasing Connecticut Shade cigars. With this offering Casa Fernandez delivers a bold and flavorful Connecticut Shade offering.
There are a lot of Connecticut Shade Cigars that claim to be stronger and fuller than your average mild to medium Connecticut Shade. At the same time, I’ve found that few actually deliver on this claim. With the Aganorsa Leaf TABSA Connecticut Toro this is a medium to full strength cigar, full-bodied cigar in the second half. While it’s a bolder cigar, this is also a cigar that delivers plenty of flavor and a nice amount of complexity.
If there are any questions on whether Casa Fernandez could produce a Connecticut Shade cigar, the Aganorsa Leaf TABSA Connecticut Toro is going to provide a very quick yes. This is a box worthy cigar all the way.
