La Galera Connecticut Cigars
La Galera Connecticut cigars are Jose "Jochy" Blanco's homage to the soul of the cigar factory: "la Galera" is the roller's room, the heart of the action. And it's Jochy's factory, Tabacalera Palma, that's been responsible for a slew of the much-heralded Dominican boutiques - Aging Room and Señorial, among them.
Thick, buttery flavors pour forth almost immediately; a very noticeable sweetness comes from the fillers and binder, a dee-lish combo of Dominican Piloto Cubano, criollo '98 and Pele de Oro that Jochy grew himself. He's even added a special varietal called T-112 for good measure. But it's La Galera's Ecuador-grown Connecticut wrapper.
