This past June, we successfully introduced Antaño CT, a cigar for defiant souls. Since the release, the industry specialized media and cigar lovers got their hands in this daring cigar. The buzz started and with it the first ratings and reviews came in.

Our friend at halfwheel tried it and shared their thoughts about it. Keep reading to find out what they have to say!

Antaño CT - halfwheel

A 92 rating for Antaño CT from halfwheel

Charlie Minato is the one behind the rating. He started commenting about what he saw at first sight  “The cigar doesn’t really look like an Antaño…” He later continued: “There weren’t many hints in terms of whether this would be more Antaño or Connecticut before the cigar was lit, so it’s bit interesting to find the answer to be “somewhat yes.”

“There’s a rich nuttiness… along with some lemon sweetness and a fair bit of creaminess… Flavor is full, body is full and strength is medium-full.”

Those were words from the one and only, editor and co-founder of halfwheel. We feel nothing but flattered and thankful for this great score. He then concluded:

“This is one of the best Joya de Nicaragua cigars I’ve smoked and certainly the least expensive of that esteemed tier… I think the Antaño CT has a chance to be different. It’s got a bit of a story, it’s better priced and it’s also just better than most.”
