  1. Have been sampling from a DIC 18 box and they have definitely been full flavored for me, and I'm the one that will smoke a BBF with my morning coffee! Maybe it was the vitola but it definitely felt like it packed some oomph to it. I have to sample another one now!!
  2. What was the model for overthrowing the gov't back in the '50s? Did they have a plan to move forward with a new gov't back then? Forgive my lack of knowledge on the matter
  3. Playing it real safe with this one for the time being aren't they? Maybe COVID was the tipping point here but everyone (including the US gov't) knows it's not just about COVID
  4. What box codes? I buy more of BRC than anything else - I have a PUS SEP 19 and TSM SEP 19 both with pretty pale and dry wrappers. Taste has been fine, not spectacular or terrible but "just ok" - I will probably burn through these while BBQing or walking the dog - something to smoke through while my nice looking boxes get some age.
  5. Just OK for me. For $5-$6 each they are good, they may even end up punching above that weight a bit, but they aren't blowing me away that's for sure
  6. Exactly my point. A garbage cigar is going to remain a garbage cigar no matter what kind of box you put it in or how many cigars are in there with it. ...and realistically, how can one even begin to draw comparisons between 2 handmade products that are potentially assembled by 2 different people not using the same exact formula?
  7. The answer is no. To further blow your mind, you could have 50 cigars in a cabinet rolled by 50 different people.....could have a 3-pack of tubos rolled by 3 different way to even compare this realistically
  8. Anybody smoke these recently? I have a single of each from JUN 19 but I don't wanna waste them if they aren't smoking well yet.
  9. I definitely don’t put Rafael Gonzalez in the same class with Bolivar. My opinion only of course, but I do think I have some company. All fine cigars and I enjoy them all, but I put RGPC and PLPC in the same class together. You’re right they are maybe $1 or $2 cheaper per stick than the BPC - which doesn’t make the PLPC that great of a value pick honestly. I think BPC is a much more flavorful and higher quality cigar for my tastes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Eh, for $5-$6 they can be a great value. However, they aren't gonna smoke like a CoRo or a HUSW. I believe it's still a lower quality leaf than the higher priced marcas use
  11. Pic doesn’t do it justice - by far the darkest Boli PC’s I’ve ever seen. Real nice sheen on them too. From a 24:24 here. Been going deeper on the PC’s with the cost of everything going up so much Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Yeah that's exactly what I meant - stuff already on shelves vs. new shipments.....guess we'll never know what is what anyway though....$$$
  13. Would this apply to cigars that are already out in the wild - i.e. 2019 and 2020 production? Or does this only get tacked on to new shipments leaving Cuba heading for distributors?
  14. Nice review! I have an April EPM 2018 box that I've been sitting on for the 3 year mark - took one out last night and planning to fire it up this weekend 👍
  15. Don't love the Anejo - too much of an earthiness for me. However, they are half (or less than half) the cost of an Opus, so there's that. I love that sweet & spicy cedar that I get from a well aged Opus though
