After a long absence, Absinthe, the legendary herbal liqueur is available again. Then the folks at Alpha Cigars had the thought of making cigars with a subtle infusion of the green liqueur.
Absinthe Infused - Connecticut sports a golden Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper, which surrounds a Dominican binder. Inside are a blend of long-fillers, including one leaf that receives an infusion of Absinthe. These mellow to medium-bodied cigars have notes of wood, leather, hay, pine, and citrus, with gentle spices. The herbal nature of the liqueur adds an intriguing flavor to an already solid cigar. If you want to try something truly unique, give Absinthe Infused - Connecticut a try.
