Dapper Cigars Cubo Claro | Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

"Have you Kaplowitz'd to-day?"

Dapper cigar Co. Cubo Claro
WRAPPER: Ecuadorian Connecticut
BINDER: Nicaraguan
FILLER: Nicaraguan

FORMAT: Toro (650)
ORIGIN: Tabacaleras Carreras S.A., Nicaragua.

NOTES: With so much made as of late re: "Not your grandfather's Connecticut" -- this one is unabashedly just that. A cigar from a bygone era. I detect a note of history book in its aroma. Lemony cream on my lips. Sunlit dirt, sweet hay, a smattering of white pepper, pale ginger, and chamomile in the smoke-hole up-top. The underbelly is of more sweet/sour bright dirt. Twit that some blonde roasted coffee and orange blossom honey. Nougat, blanched almonds. Lots going on in a subtly mellow manner.

Draws a tick spongy but not bad. Burns on a razor-line and offers slightly varying levels of moderate smoke out-put into a gentle 'baccy room-note. Smoke gets delivered to the palate coolly and plentifully, its texture is quite smooth with just 'nuff kick to, well, kick. Construction holds admirably to its tooth-picked nub.

"Every part of Cubo tells a story. The light blue band on the Claro signifies my very first cigar in the business... my first baby boy per say [sic]. The Claro’s profile pays homage to the Connecticut wrapped cigars my own father smoked every evening after a long days' work." -
