  1. This thread just reminds me that Clasicos and then Don Alejandros were discontinued and I don't have very many left of either. 😔
  2. No. Viso is technically a component of seco. It's essentially the uppermost priming of the seco segment of the plant, dubbed "viso" because it grows at about eye-level on a mature plant.
  3. Ok- now I have to defend DCs’ honor. If “strong” and “bold” are your requisites for “interesting”, I would offer that you may simply possess an imprecise palate. A “mild” DC can offer dynamics, nuance and flavor development to rival any other size. An 898 may be an exciting action movie, but a Punch DC can be Lawrence of Arabia.
  4. That's alright... none of them look terribly interesting, anyway. 😔
  5. Thanks for the review. I have a box of ‘15s I’ve yet to crack and I hope they’re half as good as yours.
  6. They don't have to be good, though. Remember, we're not trying to sell this friend on cigars, just show the variety of flavors. That's Kelner for you. 😄
  7. You're trying to convince a non-cigar-person buddy of the range and breadth of flavors that can be found in cigars. Your friend has agreed to try three cigars of your choosing in order to give your thesis a hearing. Which three cigars do you bring your cigar-newbie pal to best express the variety of tastes available in the entire cigar category?
  8. CAUTION: It would be a lot less expensive to just eat a handful of cherries, drink a mug of cocoa and suck on an old leather belt for a while.
  9. It dumbfounds me that Habanos could be so without an understanding of how/where to market that product after mere DECADES of selling EMS stock to Hunters & Frankau. 🤦‍♂️
  10. "I'm sorry, sir, but it does appear to be an authentic Plasencia." 🥁
  11. Are there any Cuban factory anoraks out there who can help me with a question? I've been curious for a long time about what tobacco goes into per diems. Do torcedors use stock of whatever blend they're rolling on the day to make them or is there other stock set aside specifically for this purpose? Is it maybe lot-ends that aren't big enough to do anything else with or lower-graded leaves that don't make the cut for commercial production? Is there any insight out there?
