Blackbird Cigars is putting out some really good at great price points. The Nest Connecticut is a great example. The Nest consists of 60% long filler and 40% short filler. The Connecticut started out mild plus and transitioned to almost medium in strength and body. Flavors I picked up on include pepper, dark coffee, earth, hay, cream and sweet tobacco. Not overly complex, but a great deal at $5. This is a good early morning cigar!!
