  1. Interesting. Thanks. That still pretty much answers my question. Will be ordering some III'S soon as my regular vendor is out of stock on II'S currently, and the price difference isn't much, and the larger size compared to the II'S will be nice. Have a no.5 I was gifted that I will be trying out eventually and will get to compare different tastes in different vitolas in the Siglo line. Haven't ever had any except for the II'S Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. Great review. I have recently bought about 8 different Davidoffs/zinos, and the appearance and construction has been perfect on all I have had so far (as it should be considering the price of them) Haven't enjoyed the taste of about half the Davidoffs but everything else about them was perfect. So far, the Zinos have been much more to my liking Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  3. The majority of the times I have just tried to slide them off, the edge cuts into the wrapper at some point and leaves me with the same issue if it happens to be on a seam, which is typically where it catches. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. Vegas Robaina Famosos Excellent in every regard as always. Has been a consistently tasty and well constructed staple with me for a few years now. Even prefer it over the more well regarded Unicos in fact, and its a fair bit cheaper which is always nice. Fonseca Delicias My first of these Very tasty and very flavorful. Did have a hint of bitterness on the finish, but felt pretty spongy and is very fresh from an unknown vendor since I was gifted a few to try before buying the box I was considering in a few days, so was likely a little over humidified.

  5. Nice review. How do you feel the Siglo III compares to the II's taste-wise? Same taste in just a larger size? Or different tastes and/or complexity and transitions? I smoke a lot of the II's and love them. Only Cohiba that I keep more than 1 or 2 on hand. Usual vendor is out of stock on the II's , so am considering getting some III's instead. As long as the taste is similar, I may switch to III's exclusively for the larger size and smoke time. Thanks Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks, I'll look into that Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  7. How does the taste of the QDO 54 compare to the 50? Any noticeable difference? Love the 50's, but tend to get out of stock quicker than the 54's usually, so curious if size is the only difference Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  8. Great review. I'm a big fan of the entire Epicure line, but the no.2 is my favorite also. Shame you got a bad on, as they are so good. Really a serious bummer to be expecting a great smoke, only to be disappointed. That can honestly ruin part of my day, especially if its my morning Cigar. Always make sure to redeem things by making sure that I smoke something particularly good for the next smoke. Honestly can't recall ever having an issue with an Epicure personally. All have been consistently great smokes in every regard Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  9. Dont have any answers for you, sorry, but tagging this thread as I'm curious about what the experts think about this. Haven't ever had any change color, which wouldn't really concern me, but the cracking fool and loss of oils/sheen would. Losing oils will mute if not eliminate, the flavor depending on how much they lost. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  10. Why do the Cubans use so much friggin glue on their bands? I can't count the number of times that I damaged the wrapper trying to get one off. Just happened this morning with a VR Famosos which got damaged right on a seam, so it started peeling badly in 2 directions. Fortunately I was wise enough after so many damaged wrappers to pick up a couple bottles of Cigar glue. Has saved many a cc in the last 6 months. Need to order some more as my last bottle is getting low since they are so tiny. Really be nice if the bottles were bigger, the tiny little ones I'm finding available just g
  11. Welcome from Wyoming I'm a big Montecristo fan too. Definitely my favorite marca and what I smoke the most of Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. Partagas Super Partagas Pretty tasty. Nothing really special, typical partagas flavor. Perfect draw, burn and construction though For the cheap price for something similar to, but longer than, a typical Partagas PC, is worth buying on occasion. Wouldn't be a staple in my stash though
  13. Took the majorities advice about quality vs quantity and will be getting 10 Cohiba Coronas Especiales in a box split and a 25ct box of Fonseca Delicias, so getting a little bit of both quality and quantity. I like Fonsecas, and hard to beat for the price imho. Also I have never noticed any difference between short, mixed and long filler Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  14. Yeah, sucked having t 9k finish with it so early. Makes me leary of buying more. Haven't been having much luck with My Fathers lately. Used to love lots of them, now, not so much Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  15. My Father Le Bijou 1922 Torpedo Very tasty for the 1st 2/3, then got really strong and overpowering like most Cigars do for me when they are down to the last couple inches, which is my que its finished. So this one got put out sooner than usual. Excellent draw, burn and construction though, and a nice appearance with a nice darker, oily wrapped with nearly invisible seams and very few, thin veins. Overall a pretty good smoke for the price
