A closely kept secret amongst enthusiasts of boutique-style cigars is Esteban Carreras, a small outfit out of Estelí, Nicaragua that prides itself on quality craftsmanship and strict attention to detail. The company's Nicaraguan heritage can be felt throughout their portfolio, making use of hearty Nicaraguan tobaccos throughout the majority of their blends.
This mindset carries through even in unexpected places, such as the conventionally mild Connecticut-style cigar blend. This is best evidenced with the Esteban Carreras Cashmere Connecticut, a smoke that proves you can't judge a cigar by its cover (leaf, that is). The Esteban Carreras Cashmere takes a flawless, bronze-hued Ecuadorian Connecticut cigar wrapper and secures it over a zesty blend of all-Nicaraguan binder/fillers. The result is as smooth yet bold as Samuel L. Jackson in a premium cashmere sweater! Forget the lull-you-to-sleep Connecticuts of old, Esteban Carreras Cashmere weighs in with a medium-plus body and heaps of flavor. This smoke opens up with white pepper and nutmeg, later evolving to include irresistible characteristics of citrus, toasted cedar, browned butter, and salted crackers.
