The smoke of epi2 reserva is more silky and deeper in flavors, smoke time is much longer than the regular production due to well filled fillers. I do feel the taste is a bit different than the regular production, not a better epi2, but a better hoyo experience. As for the construction, I had a few with less than ideal, especially for with it cost. But that’s with all Cubans in general.
Out of all the RR GR I experienced, the wide Churchill’s was the worst.
I buy the RR and GR to add to smoke rotation, not for a replacement of its regular counterpart. If you enjoy it, it’s worth having a box or more. Cheers.
