Similarly constructed in Santiago, Dominican Republic, the variation offered by the #3 Signature Series Ecuadorian Connecticut Wrapper is hardly a departure from the Brazilian Maduro with regard to quality and overall taste.
The Ecuadorian Connecticut line—like its Maduro counterpart—offers Robusto, Toro, and Gordo sizes. For an extended smoking experience, the Ecuadorian line also offers a 50×7 Churchill.
Villamil’s knowledge of tobacco blends, once again, has him coupling the understated Dominican Seco long-filler, along with the mild nature of the Olor. The marriage of these fillers produce a taste that is accentuated by the Ecuadorian Connecticut Wrapper—a leaf grown in Ecuador with Connecticut seeds.
Owing its attractive hue to the overcast skies of the South American region from which it originates, the Ecuadorian Connecticut Wrapper is as attractive to the eye as it is to the palate.
At first glance, smokers will marvel at its flawless structure. More importantly, it is the consistent, smooth draws from this treasure that have smokers continually praising its medium-bodied delight. Revealing a dominant spice, nut-based presence—in addition to a variety of other flavors—this line is equally as satisfying a smoking experience as that of the #3 Maduro.
