  1. Sheesh go figure, I kick myself all the time for not getting serious about this hobby earlier and missing out on a lot of the discontinued stuff... Thanks again for everyone's input by the way...it's starting to look like I'll probably eventually pull the trigger on some HUHC and Coronas Major in addition to Connie 1s (when I see them!) HU really is such a marvelous marca, I hope they decide to branch out with new cigars in the future (or bring back some old ones anyway!)
  2. I have to second this, I've heard great things and I'm not at all against trying them...but I also know that I am really not a short smoke kind of guy. I usually prefer no smaller than Coronas but I am definitely still taking the HUHC in to consideration so thanks for that! @BrightonCorgi I've been through a box of 46s and also aging a box atm, I was pleasantly surprised by them but I still prefer the 2s to everything else except for maybe the Winstons. Plus mags cost a fair amount as well.
  3. Hey everyone, so I have been eyeing some of the more affordable HU options but I really don't have any experience with any of them. Specifically, the Coronas Major, Majestics and the Regalias. Can you guys tell me which you like best and why? Basically I'm just looking for a more affordable way to scratch that HU itch I occasionally get without having to break in to the pricier HUs I am trying to age. By the way, for reference, my favorite HUs are the #2s, SW & Noellas. Thanks in advance for your feedback!!
  4. I'm fine if they insist on making larger rgs *provided* they continue to offer skinnies for those of us that prefer them as well. My preferences seem to vary from about 35 (Montecarlos) to 52, anything bigger than that is just not my cup of tea. I do wonder if Cuba is leaning in to this trend in hopes of creating less plugged cigars by default?
  5. Didn't Prez say these should be showing up again? I'm dying to get my hands on a box or two myself...
  6. That is quite interesting @IanMcLean68 , those SLR Serie A sound amazing...a little before my time but maybe they will pop up on Bond Roberts someday...anyway, I'm happy to at least have the Regios! @Corylax18 that is a great story! I can't say I've offended any customs agents but I've had some non-smoking friends and family smell some of my boxes and it seems like a 50/50 split. Some can appreciate the smell while others look like they just smelled rotten eggs, haha. But then it also largely depends on marca/box chosen I think. I know my mother, for example, loves the smell of the most R
  7. Hey everyone, I hope all of you have some good smokes lined up for the weekend! So I recently cracked open a new box of SLR Regios and I was hit by the most fruitiest odor imaginable. I've have other boxes of Regios that have a faint fruit smell but nothing like this most recent box. I mean the damned thing smells like it was packaged with Fruit Punch Koolaid packets! So that had me wondering, what are some of the most interesting smelling boxes you've had and what did they smell like? Both CC and NC is fine, as I know I have a box of Ashton Symmetry's that smell like...well, v
  8. Cohiba Lanceros...hoping to score a box (or two!) this summer!
  9. I second this, Vegueros are very nice cigars! I can appreciate that not everyone likes them but that doesn't mean they aren't good cigars. I'm not a fan of some of the sizes but other than that, I'm a big fan.
  10. 39 years old and to keep in shape I... - do 100 push ups and sit-ups in sets of 25 each Monday-Friday morning - walk for 25-30 minutes when weather permits during the work week - 1 hour of cardio on my exercise bike at least 5 days a week and even with all that I STILL have to watch my calorie intake...what a joy growing older is.
  11. Never had one but an SP Lonsdale sounds spectacular! In my experience, yes, the Belicosos can get a little rough in the last 3rd when they are young, but I still find them to be wonderful cigars.
  12. Ah hah! Yes thanks everyone, that all very well answers my question! And yes @JohnS it did appear that they were out of stock at my usual spots, hence me wondering - but fortunately I was recently able to pick up a couple boxes. It's a relief to know that the hiatus should only be temporary @NSXCIGAR next time they return in numbers I'll be stocking up, that's for sure.
  13. I personally adore the SP Belicosos and for the life of me, I don't understand why SP is not as popular as Bolivar, HU, RJ, etc... I've found that the Non Plus were (past tense because they have been discontinued) much stronger than the Belicosos but I love both equally.
  14. Hello everyone, hope you are all smoking some good sticks this weekend. I noticed some places are currently out of the Superiores and I just wanted to confirm, are they still in production as of 2021? I checked the Cuban cigar website and it still lists it as current, but I just wanted to double check as I am a big fan of this cigar and hope to stock up before they are gone. The most recent box dates I have are 2020. Thanks to anyone who can provide more information!
  15. I'll agree that recent PLPCs aren't very consistent but I am still getting some spectacular smokes. I believe it to be a total fluke but the last one I smoked tasted like 100% butter...a slightly strange but enjoyable sharp buttery note and tasted almost nothing like a typical PLPC...and it stayed that way until the last 1/3 when a bit of cream joined the primary buttery note. I highly doubt the rest in that cab will be like that one but just getting that one incredible smoking experience helps to counter balance (but of course, not totally alleviate) the frustration with current PLPCs.
