The guy making the wrappers dark for these cigars was not consistently
following the recipe. As a result, many of these cigars will shed a red
color onto your fingers or lips. The worker has since been fired. But we do
not know how many of these dark wrapped cigars are still in the pipeline.
It will take some time to unravel the mess and determine a solution. In the
meanwhile, dark wrappers may shed red.
If this bothers you, I suggest you order the Smith Corona Naturals instead.
They are the same cigar, but with a natural wrapper.
The aroma of an Amish tobacco barn in late Summer. The flavor of hickory, with toasted black bread. A maduro broadleaf wrapper adds plenty of smoky flavors.
Smith Connecticut Oscuro wrappers are cured using FX Smiths Sons special curing process, to achieve that toasty tobacco flavor loved by American cigar smokers for 150 years.
wrapper: PA Maduro
binder: PA Broadleaf
filler: a masterful blend of Dominican, Pennsylvania Broadleaf, and Connecticut Broadleaf
