Leaf Sumatra wrap by Oscar- Perfect morning cigar

Leaf by Oscar is made in Honduras and comes with four different kinds of wrappers: Connecticut, Corojo, Maduro, and Sumatra. I will be reviewing specifically the Sumatra wrapper. The binder and filler is Honduran and the wrapper is an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. Sumatra tobacco is a delicate leaf and can be hard to work with. It is my favorite wrapper for a cigar because of the flavors of sweet coffee, milk chocolate, and creaminess. The wrapper feels soft and smooth. It has a beautiful shine and the cigar’s construction could be viewed as a work of art. The tasting notes for the cigar are milk chocolate, citrus, and hints of pepper. The cigar has a nice slow burn and is very smooth. The cigar is between a mild to mild-medium strength depending on what you normally smoke.

There is no better way to start my day than with this cigar and a coffee. It also goes great with a smooth whiskey, preferably rye. The leaf cigar is the cigar you will always see me start with when I open the shop. No matter my mood or energy, this cigar with a cup of coffee seems to make me happy. If you want to fully experience the Sumatra wrapper I suggest you try the lancero version of this cigar, as with this size the wrap place a larger role in the flavor profile. So if you’re looking to start your day on a high note pick up a Leaf Sumatra wrap cigar by Oscar and have it with a coffee. Great Morning!

La Galera Connecticut- The creamy Connecticut

This cigar is a Dominican cigar with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. The tasting notes are almonds, creamy cedar, with other hints of dark cocoa, bitter espresso, gritty earth and grass. The wrapper does not have the characteristic slight bitterness found in a Connecticut wrapper.

I believe the cigar pairs well with a light beer or light roast coffee. The cigar is a must try for people who enjoy mild cigars. It’s a great cigar to start your day or have on the golf course. I call this the creamy Connecticut because that is the first flavor or taste I get and I am surprised by this because it is a Connecticut wrapped cigar..
