Connecticut Shade Wrapper Cigars

Connecticut Shade leaf wrapper cigars are Connecticut-seed tobacco grown under shade in the Connecticut River Valley. The cover filters the sun's rays to produce a thin, supple leaf with very thin veins. The leaf has a distinctive golden-brown color and a mild welcoming taste profile. Farmers have been growing tobacco in the region for hundreds of years. However, the popular Connecticut Shade wrappers we all know today started in the early 20th Century.

Farmers in the region imported Sumatra seeds to combat the competition from the region. Unfortunately, the first harvest was not as expected. Instead of the golden brown they looked forward to, they were greeted with rough dark leaves with huge veins. The farmers observed that the sun was excessive for the leaves. They devised a shade from clothes to filter out direct rays of sunlight. The Connecticut Shade wrapper cigar was born. Although, the shade is a bit of a misnomer. Even though the tents remove the sunlight, they also raise the temperature within them, with very high humidity.

The trademark of the Connecticut Shade leaf wrapper is the creamy and approachable flavor profile it possesses. It blesses the palate with notes of nuts, cedar, and coffee beans. Its oily golden-brown sheen is another factor that endears the cigars made from it to cigar aficionados. The consistent and renounced taste of many premium brands today relies heavily on the Connecticut Shade wrapper. Connecticut shade is wrapped around Don Diego Classic, Santa Damiana Classic, Ashton Cabinet Selection, Arturo Fuente Natural Chateau Series, and many other high-quality cigars.
