Wrapped with a rich Connecticut Ecuador leaf and a binder & filler combination composed of Dominican grown seeds from Tabacalera Palma’s state of the art farms. Mild to medium bodied, the Connecticut gets its name from the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper that holds the Dominican T-112, Piloto Cubano, and Criollo tobaccos. The blend of tobaccos produces a sweet and creamy smoke, with notes of Cedar and Citrus, that has a hint of pepper on the back of the palette.
Tabacalera Palma is one of the oldest tobacco companies in the Dominican Republic, having been established by the Blanco family in 1936. Today, it is run by José “Jochy” Blanco. Who has endured hard work to grow the family tobacco business since the early 1980’s. Ever since Jochy assumed the role of CEO in Tabacalera Palma, the company has developed numerous private labels for some of the leading cigar companies in the world, and has created it’s critically-acclaimed flagship brand, La Galera.
