***Hey guys, given my time constraints from school, Logan suggested trying out a new style: Catfish's Quick Hits. Granted, I may not be able to do this every Monday, but it takes a ton less time then a formal review. So here we go...***
I got this Sindicato at IPCPR from the Jim Collucci after doing an interview. Knowing I love mild cigars, Jim handed me a few of his Affinity line to try out. I sat down with a cup of Yirgacheffe to pair, and I must say I was quite impressed. The Affinity was super nutty through the nose and palate, mild, creamy, hints of sugar, and a light white pepper finish. The sugar notes created a sweet cream affect that seemed to roll off the tongue. There is not much ligero here, but plenty of flavor for me, and a perfect compliment as a morning smoke. Given my penchant for Connecticut wrapped cigars, very few impress me, and the Affinity is the best I have had from the show thus far.
Rating: Box Split – 92. I am ranking this a box split, simply because I cannot see this not being in my Conny humidor. Granted, I may not buy more then a fiver at a time since I do not get the chance to smoke in the morning often, but I could see myself freaking out if I did not have these in my rotation. This is the best Connecticut I have smoked from the show and a mild lovers dream.
