Mike G Premium Cigars Super Connecticut Cigar Review By Chris LaPointe 

Social Media is an amazing place. It’s like a whole other universe. Anything can happen there. You can use it to leisurely browse. Or even create and promote your business. You can view the going-ons from places too far to see in person, even the stuff the mainstream media doesn’t want to cover. Anything anyone wants to post (for the most part) they can. You can make friends anywhere in the world. People you never met in person but follow and regularly talk with. That’s what happened here with these Mike G Premium Cigars from Mike G. We became Instagram friends, talked, laughed and shared a passion for cigars. Mike sent me a 5-pack of his Super Connecticut cigars. Just as a gift, no expectations of a review or anything. But, you know me, I’m reviewing these!

Without further ado, onto the cigar.  Mike Gs Super Connecticut is a very pretty cigar. It uses a Shade Grown Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. And if you know much about Shade versus Sun Grown leaves this makes a much lighter and thinner leaf with little to no veins that gives an ultra tight and smooth finish to the wrapping. It’s very pretty and perfect to say the least. Typically I don’t smoke lighter sticks as I’m a big fan of Maduros (often Sun Grown broadleafs from Connecticut). However a lighter stick like this is absolutely perfect for a morning smoke with your coffee or a day at the beach. Underneath the wrapper is a Ecuadorean binder with premium long-fillers from both the Dominican and Nicaragua. Well, I love tobaccos from all of these regions and looking as pretty as this stick with its badass band, I can say I am excited to try these (I smoked 3 for this review).

Here we go with my Sniff-Sniff test and right away my nose is filled with beautiful notes of cedar and nuts. I can’t specify exactly what nuts but I’m loving it all the same. I recently received a beautiful box gift set with a cutter, lighter, cigar tube and other things from El Pama (check out this gorgeous set ) so I brought these along as they were perfect for traveling. I used the cutter to open this cigar and take a Cold-Draw.. WOW, the cedar is definitely there only now the nuts have been replaced by something sweet. Maybe vanilla but I can’t quite distinguish it just yet.  I am most definitely excited to light this up and take my first draw.

After lighting the Super Connecticut I am met with notes of cedar (as I expected) and the vanilla is gone and we are back to nuts. Almonds. It is most definitely almonds. I can immediately distinguish it now and damn, it’s good. Smooth and easy draw with those beautiful flavors. Making my way through the First-Third the flavors stay consistent with an earthy undertone. The retrohale delivers some tasty white pepper that I quite enjoy.

Heading into the Second-Third of this cigar, it makes a nice transition, losing the almonds and replacing them with a mild leathery note. The retrohale still produces white pepper. No complaints here. The smoke output is lighter but smooth and enjoyable.

Moving into the Final-Third of the Super Connecticut from Mike G Premium Cigars it makes yet another transition dropping the leather and bringing back that beautiful vanilla I tasted in the Cold-Draw. YES! Who doesn’t like vanilla? If you don’t, you’re wrong. The retrohale proves consistent, still bringing the beautiful white pepper finish.

The burn on this cigar from start to finish was straight. Not razor straight. But even and consistent. The smoke output stayed on the lighter side throughout the cigars. All 3 smoked very consistently to each other. Even the cigar we smoked on the beach withstood the wind and my long pauses to gawk at the beautiful First Lady, needing no relights or corrections.

If you like a cigar that is more on the mild side of strength and with a medium-body complexion I highly recommend these cigars from Mike G Premium Cigars. They come in a 6 x 52 Toro in packs of 5 for $59.95. I think the price is a terrific value for what I got in these premium cigars. Check them out at mikegpremiumcigars.com
