Ernesto Padilla told halfwheel that he will add the Connecticut as the fourth blend in the series of affordably-priced Padillas made at Raíces Cubanas.
The Padilla Connecticut uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan filler from AGANORSA. It will be offered in the same three sizes as the other cigars: Robusto (5 x 54), Toro (6 1/2 x 54) and 6 x 60. Suggested retail pricing is expected to be between $6.25-7.50 per cigar and all three sizes will come in boxes of 20.
It will debut at the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show which takes place in Las Vegas, Nev. this July.
