  1. Furthering the discussion of RE/LE comparisons to value/enjoyment compared to regular/discontinued in a recent thread, we would like some input from the members as to which they feel were/are a lead runner for the specific marcas and those that were better off staying at the blocks... No right answers just opinion. We would ask that opinion posts be limited to those that have smoked at least 3 of the offending cigars to have insight beyond a single smoke or evaluation just upon size. We’ve not made this a poll on purpose; want descriptions and opinions on where to put money on this marca
  2. This is my first review in a long time, so bear with me. I got this LGC Tainos back in 2008 as a single from an online retailer. It has been in my wineador all these years. Prelight, this cigar had a nice shiny wrapper with some slight tooth. I dryboxed it for a day in my 3-cigar leather pouch. After a punch cut, the draw was perfect with prelight aromas of tea and floral notes. I lit the cigar with a table lamp. The initial flavors were tea and floral notes which is especially pleasant on a retrohale. These flavors were very light and pleasant for the first half of the cigar.
  3. Greetings again dear friends! I'd like to take the opportunity to acknowledge @Chef and @Psiman for their enthusiasm and encouragement for this particular Video Review Series. I sincerely hope you enjoy them and they can assist you with your cigar journey. Again, like all my other past Series, I'd like to say that speaking 'on-the-fly' about cigars is certainly a challenge and I will need to acknowledge errors throughout this series (so again bare with me). Also, please feel free to share your thoughts on these cigars in this thread. If you have views or opinions contrary to what has been
  4. Today is my daughter's birthday, which is a good and happy thing, but at the same time troubling. If SHE's 20, that means I'm not 20, and in fact am much older and just getting more old. Sigh. But, it's appropriate for the review this weekend because she ties into this cigar and my entry and journey into Cuban cigars. We took her on a graduation trip last year, and during that trip I went to my first LCDH in Morocco and bought my first batch, and also stopped in Barcelona and picked up a box of these. Note to self, hit Spain on the front end of trips - I kick myself for not buying more bo
  5. This gentle Panetela pronounces the tons of cedary, floral with mild body at the beginning, then the fruity note is added when I started to progress. This wonderful mild bodied combination still continues with just more complexity, stronger floral and fruity notes as I smoke it further to the end. The flavour becomes slightly harsh at the end but remains terrific without being too aggressive. This makes me not want to stop smoking it and because of that, my fingers are almost getting burned! Such a fine and elegant cigar with graceful ending! -Mr. Knight Brand: La Gloria Cubana Siz
  6. I'm not shy about my passion for skinny cigars, so when our good brother @HarveyBoulevard decided to let go some MdO#1 I was more than happy to partake. Jeff supplied me with a generous number of these long and skinny vitolas, which he had acquired from our gracious host in one of the locker sell offs some years ago. He could not remember the code because these cigars come in a varnished box like the Partagas 8-9-8, with the box code on the outer cardboard box, which was discarded. Jeff only recalled they could be as old 1998 or as young as 2001. This was a lovely evening for smoki
  7. I was perusing the board today after smoking a La Gloria Cubana Medaille d'Or No.4 (gifted by Steve - thanks, my friend) and I happened to stumble on this topic on the LGC Medaille d'Or No.3. It would be great for these to make a comeback, but alas, they have been discontinued. After finishing the LGC Medaille d'Or No.4, I was thinking how good it would be for the LGC Medaille d'Or No.2 to be available again. The LGC Medaille d'Or No.4 had a nice complexity to it...floral, earthy, fruity and even savoury (with hints of pepper) but I can't help but feel that the LGC Medaille d'Or No.2, being a
