J. Fuego Connoisseur Originals are short and sweet cigars made to satisfy the needs of those looking for a quick smoke that is still complex, well-balanced, and ultra-flavorful. Made down in Honduras by Jesus Fuego and company, Connoisseur Originals are 5” x 44 corona size cigars that mimic flavors of old-time Cuban sticks that were known for their sweet spice and robust nature. Released back in 2013, Connoisseur Originals have more than proven themselves as one of the finer small cigars available on today’s market. The blend consists of a densely packed core of Nicaraguan and Honduran Corojo fillers, a spicy San Andreas binder, and a dark, golden Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper leaf. Connoisseur originals are exactly what they sound like: Fine cigars made for people who like fine cigars.
Toothy and rustic, Connoisseur Originals boast simple packaging and basic, almost rudimentary bands. That’s not the point, though. The special part is what the band is wrapped around. The thin, solid corona opens up with a blast of wood and spice. Cedar, earth, and raw tobacco flavors, along with hints of citrus and cherry, make up the bulk of the flavor profile. A touch of chocolate and coffee, along with a Cuban style spicy-sweetness on the finish, make this cigar something really special. It’s surprising how much flavor can fit in such a small package!
Perfect for a morning stick, a late night pre-bedtime smoke, or a lunch break cigar, Connoisseur Originals not only fits the bill but also offers so much more than just a quick smoke. Well-rounded and robust, Connoisseur Originals is built from the ground up to appeal to cigar fans that really want something more than just a basic cigar. Connoisseur Originals pairs well with red wine, coffee, and dark beer, and is in the famous lineup of short cigars by J. Fuego including Americana Originals and J. Fuego Origen. For a quick, satisfying smoke made especially for experienced cigar fanatics, J. Fuego Connoisseur Originals are a no-brainer.
