At the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show, Kuuts LLC showed off the new Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade offering. The cigar is called Kuuts Connecticut and it becomes the company’s second blend to carry the Kuuts name in its title.
Not surprisingly the company’s first Connecticut Shade blend, Tabacalera Zapata was not featured at the Kuuts booth. The Tabacalera Zapata was named for Ramon Zapata Perez, who departed Compania Hondurena de Tabacos (CHT) in January, for which Kuuts LLC is the U.S. distribution arm. The Kuuts LLC is a different blend than Tabacalera Zapata.
The 2015 IPCPR Trade Show was a busy one for Kuuts LLC. In addition to launching the Kuuts Connecticut, the company has released the long awaited Miro Capa Negra and the new Placeres Serie Roja.
