Speaking of Connecticut Shade, I smoked a Macanudo Gold Label a few days ago and really enjoyed that one. I say I like maduro wrappers, but I don't have nearly enough variety of experience to know WTF I'm talking about. What I really like might have nothing to do with the wrapper. I need to pay more attention, which is why I posted here....to give myself some notes.
Most of the flavor does come from the wrapper - *most* of it.
But when you consider the possible combinations of filler, binder and wrapper, there's literally thousands of possible flavors that can be produced.
Finding a style (or several) you like is a learning process. It took me about two years to find "my brand", and even then I would still try new ones.
