In addition to the recently announced Hit & Run Part Deux (Rip & Dip), Robert Caldwell and Matt Booth are bringing a line extension to The T., their project with Abdel Fernandez.
Set to debut at this week’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, The T. Connecticut replaces the original line’s Nicaraguan-grown wrapper with an Ecuadorian Connecticut leaf. Underneath that is a mixture of Nicaraguan fillers.
The T. Connecticut is being offered in four vitolas, each packed in 20-count boxes:
- The T. Connecticut Corona (6 x 44) — $10.60 (Boxes of 20, $212)
- The T. Connecticut Short Robusto (4 x 48) — $10.80 (Boxes of 20, $216)
- The T. Connecticut Double Robusto (5 1/2 x 54) — $11.80 (Boxes of 20, $236)
- The T. Connecticut Toro (6 x 50) — $11.40 (Boxes of 20, $228)
The cigars are being made at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A. in Estelí.
