Kristen’s new Connecticut Shade offering, appropriately titled, the Kristoff Connecticut is now on its way to retail shops.

The Connecticut Shade wrapper is sourced from Ecuador. The cigar also features a Nicaraguan binder and a Dominican Quad seed filler. The cigar is available in four sizes in 20 count boxes.

The Kristoff Connecticut features the brand’s signature rough cut packaging and rough cut bands.


This isn’t the company’s first Connecticut Shade blend. The company also has the Kristoff Brittania, which uses a Honduran Shade wrapper.  In addition, the company has made the Kristoff Galerones DR4, for which the new Kristoff Connecticut is said to be a new reblended version based on that cigar.

In addition to the release of the Kristoff Connecticut, the company has also released the Kristoff Habano. A third release, Pistoff Kristoff is in the works for this year.

At a glance, here is a look at the Kristoff Connecticut.
