A few weeks back I attended the fourth annual Chattanooga Tweet Up hosted by Burns Tobacconist.   About an hour after arriving I ran into my friend Bryan Jackson, owner of Jaxsin Cigar Co. Bryan being the gentleman he is noticed I did not have a stick in my hand and offered me one. He opened his case and asked if I wanted a mild, medium, or full bodied smoke. It was my first stick of the day so I said hit me with a mild one. Bryan then pulls out a Connecticut wrapped lancero that is his “event only” stick. Being a lancero “whore” this was followed by excitement and enjoyment!

Looks: It’s a lancero! I know, I get all giddy inside when I see lanceros. The Jaxsin Cigar Co. Connecticut features a light brown wrapper leaf with minimal veins. The wrapper leaf itself has just the slightest bit of toothiness to it. The band is the standard Jaxsin Cigar Co. band, black background trimmed in yellow with the Jaxsin four-leaf clover logo dead center and reads, “Jaxsin Cigar Co.” There are two more four-leaf clovers on each side, one with “Handmade” imprinted over it.

Taste: It’s delicious! Immediately upon lighting the Jaxsin Cigar Co. Connecticut I was hit with a strong creaminess that would remain present throughout the entire smoke. On the front end I detected a slight toasted nuttiness and some prominent cedar wood flavors. These wood notes would be the most prominent flavors throughout the smoke and would grow in intensity making this a very full flavored and creamy tasting cigar.

Strength: This is a mild and smooth Connecticut cigar, excellent to pair with coffee or chocolate milk in the morning.

Burn: Spot on. Lanceros either burn perfectly or they are all over the place needing touch ups. I was happy to report that the Jaxsin Connecticut lancero burned evenly throughout. Ash was firm occasionally falling while smoking. Smoke was full and white.

First off, if I have anything to say about it, Bryan will turn this into a regular production stick.  The regular production Jaxsin Cigar Co. Connecticut is available in a 4 1/2 x 48 Rothschild and a 6 x 52 Toro.  The flavor profile is amazing, which I have said before is not always the easiest thing to pull off in a Connecticut. Full flavor and a smooth and mild strength make this an excellent stick for the first smoke of the day.  Buy it, smoke it, thank me afterwards!
