Tiger Kitty Soft Paws by Black Label Trading Company


Black Label Trading Company, Cigar Federation, Connecticut, Tiger Kitty Soft PawsThe Tiger Kitty Soft Paws by Cigar Federation and Black Label Trading Company (BLK WKS) is a firmly packed and beautifully smooth looking cigar.

I was trying to identify flavors of the cold draw, but the correct words are not coming to me this morning… maybe some sort of sweet bread with a creamy finish.

Once lit, I got an immediate pepper spice on the retrohale. I’m at the start of the second third after about 30-minutes and I have also suspended my usual retrohale. This cigar is singing my nostrils.

I’m at the last third and I have an ash that doesn’t want to be knocked off… the flavors are all still there bundled up in a smooth smoky package of creamy nuts, coffee, bread and the ever-present zing of the pepper spice riding on my retrohales.

This is a more complex Connecticut than most I’ve had, except for those I’ve smoked lately like the Room 101 Farce Connecticut that I think is outstanding for a Connecticut and you might want to try the Balmoral Anjeo XO Connecticut if you’re looking for a Connecticut cigar with flavor.
