Another 90+ rated cigar by Jose “Jochy” Blanco, La Galera Connecticut cigars are homage to the rollers that sit in the roller’s room, or “La Galera” in Spanish. Rolled in Jochy’s Tabacalera Palma factory, the factory that launched brands like Aging Room and La Flor Dominicana, La Galera is Jochy’s signature line and a wonderful addition to his portfolio.
Mild to medium bodied, the Connecticut gets its name from the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper that holds the Dominican T-112, Piloto Cubano, and Criollo tobaccos. The blend of tobaccos produces a sweet and creamy smoke, with notes of Cedar and Citrus, that has a hint of pepper on the back of the palette.
More than 3 generations in the making, La Galera Connecticut is a welcome addition to the world of Mild-Medium Premium Cigars.
