Charter Oak Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro Rothschild Cigars are a labor of love from an aficionado who wants to celebrate his home state’s tobacco. That aficionado is Nick Melillo, and his home state of Connecticut provides a wide variety of tobacco he utilizes in nearly every blend of his brand. For the incandescent blend of Nicaraguan tobacco in this cigar, Melillo knew the only thing that would complement it was the luscious Connecticut Maduro Broadleaf wrapper. Sparking up the Rothschild releases the medium-bodied tastes of chocolate pastry, pepper, earth, roasted nuts, and toasted oak. At four and quarter inches, with a fifty ring gauge, this Rothschild is charmed thirty-minute smoke.
