Consuegra Cigars – The World’s Most Popular Factory Seconds
Now in their 25th year of production, Consuegra cigars remain the most popular line of factory seconds ever produced. “Connies” as they are referred to by their throngs of loyal minions, are factory seconds from the makers of Excalibur, Punch, El Rey del Mundo, Hoyo de Monterrey and our JR Ultimate— Five of the biggest names in premium handmade Honduran cigars!
The Consuegra brand is the Holy Grail for those well-seasoned smokers who appreciate a full, rich-tasting, Cuban-style cigar sold at a deep discount. While these unique handmade cigars are segundos and production overruns, they still pack a delicious medium-full body profile and a superior quality that is rare among cigar seconds.
Like their original Honduran counterparts, Consuegra cigars are made with a blend of fully aged Honduran, Dominican, and Nicaraguan tobaccos, paired with your choice of an EMS Honduran, or a dark, oily, USA Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. At first glance, the wrapper may appear to be rather dry and veiny or have mild blemishes and sun-spots. They may also be slightly off size from one smoke to the next, but even the most discerning of cigar aficionados will find that these flaws only slightly, if at all, affect the cigars burning qualities or taste.
Consuegra cigars are sold in affordable 25-count bundles and come in a staggering array of shapes and sizes to appeal to every style of smoker. Some of our more experienced smokers have been able to figure out which “Connie” is a second to a particular brand, and they continue to order it faithfully. Others just enjoy them in various sizes and wrapper colors as their go-to everyday smokes.
Depending on the size and style that you choose, you can expect a host of flavors that include spice, nuts, chocolate, leather, earth, white pepper, and more.
Even if you are a high-end cigar connoisseur, Consuegra cigars are definitely worth picking up just to have around for those occasions when you know you will be busy doing other things but still want to smoke a great tasting Honduran cigar.
