Cigars for review provided by: La Sirena Cigars

Prelight: The wrapper has a kick of red pepper, cedar hay and a mild natural sweetness. The foot adds a fudge note, while the cold draw is smooth and light. With a white pepper spice and some mild, natural sweetness.

Beginning: The La Sirena LT starts out mildly in the first quarter inch, but the flavors quickly pick up. Classic Connecticut notes of cedar, hay, nut and a vanilla note. There is no white pepper note though, which I usually expect.

Middle: The creaminess really starts to come through at this point in the LT. There is an earthy, dirty white pepper note that shows up here. This is a mild strength cigar, but the body is medium-full.

End: The La Sirena LT finishes with some muted, sweet cream and coffee notes and some dry woodiness. The strength is still very mild, but the body is medium to full. I had a few minor touch ups and a little issue keeping a burn, but it wasn’t extreme.

Final Thoughts: I smoked a couple of these at IPCPR ’16, and was amazed. I’ve become a big fan of Connecticuts and I smoked these to the nub. This is worth giving a try and keeping a few on hand. As would be expected, this is the lightest offering from La Sirena. So, it fills a missing slot in their portfolio.

Rating: 89 AKA “Five-Pack”

Great review. Your comment at the end about becoming a big fan of Connecticuts really resonates with me. There are so many fantastic, complex, and even full bodied Connecticuts out there now. This has been quite a year for the new Connecticut smokes.

Yes it has. 2015 was a year of lanceros and 2016 was definitely the year of Connecticuts. Both, very good years. :)

Thanks Sam!

Hey, 007, if you haven't tried the Thompson Casa Fernandez Connecticut Reserva, you have to. I will PM you. It's seriously good.
