Marevas (2/5)

  1. I'd go the partagas MF any day over r&j, I've had some stellar boxes of partagas MF. Medium bodied and aromatic. definitely one of my favorite C&Cs.
  2. Great review! Makes me want to search some out - pity the LGC brand is going the way of the dodo
  3. Lol love this quote. It is somewhat ironic though, as NCs started the jawbreaker revolution
  4. Shlomo I think this argument is exactly the same argument that i and many others share but on the flip side is also a particularly good reason for hsa to cut them. If all I cared about was money, I wouldn't want people noticing that my flashy expensive product was at best equal with one of my cheaper products. Cut the cheap option and force people to take the expensive one.
  5. Perhaps having a complete catalogue of 55+rg cigars will lead to a shortage of volado leaves and they will be forced to make skinnier cigars
  6. Sooo just to tally things up: looking at the totally discontinued cigars on the list (ie not just the 3packs and 50cabs) I see 1 sublimes 2 DCs and then a tonne of 42/43 ring gauge sticks This trend is never going to stop is it?!?
  7. A box of partagas E2s have hands down been my worst Cuban cigars. They look fine construction fine but taste like a sub par Dominican: bland and tasteless. Thankfully it is only a 5 box because I was wetting my feet before diving in. I'm sure it must have been a dud box reading some other FOHers reviews. second is a box of dip 2s - nothing like the quality I've had in other dip 2s. Construction is fine but taste is washed out and bland. Coincidentally both these boxes did NOT come from our host
  8. Yes just different - not "better"
  9. The distinction is based on their ingredients, with agricole rum being made from the crushed sugar cane itself, whereas most rums are made from molasses a by product of processing cane for sugar. You'll find the French Caribbean islands are the main sources of agricole rum, and I believe this is due to the similarities between using this "cane juice" and using grapes to make cognac. agricole rums tend to have lighter fruity notes to them, but of course they can be rich too Off the top of my head I don't believe any of the rums you've mentioned are agricole except (kind of but not officially) zacapa
