I will let you all decide but my two cents: 1. I have met John in person numerous times, fantastic dude 2. I have seen pics with John and Santos together in Cuba many times over the past 4 years sin

Bought 2 LC samplers last spring. The price was reasonable. Have not tried the WF or the EL. I found the Laguito to be extremely tight, basically unsmokeable. Which was depressing because the few puffs I did get tasted fantastic. Have 3 left still, and am worried about the similarly skinny Extras. Fortunately the Flying Pigs and the Shorts have been wonderful. Finished off the last of my Robustos yesterday, and they will be missed. Will probably let the rest sit until Spring.

Tempted to order some WF.

I've had the same experience with the lanceros. I have 2 bundles. One is perfect and one bundle is so tight I can't smoke them. The flavor on both is great though. Overall, I like the WF far more than the LC

Last week I smoked a "Robusto EL" (a $9 cigar) that was so bland and mild that I'll bet it was made exclusively from volado leaves… Tourist trap IMHO…

Crazy. I've smoked 2 of the same in the last week and they've been very flavorful. Despite their youth, I got cascades of cream, honey, spice, coffee, slight cocoa, random ginger and lemongrass. Already requested a bundle. Here's hoping the bundle will be like the fiver I've dug into and not like your experience.

Actually would like try some sublimes or Rodolfo from him.  

The ones with shaggy foot are pretty good.  

World Famous for me. My favorites are the Coronas Extra.  Perfect size for me and tasty.  I also like the Churchill Culebras 

Agreed, I always freeze.

Sorry, I just looked and none of the ones I mentioned are even available right now.

My first order of Johnny O's are on the way. 

Excited to try these.   Thanks @garbandz for the PM.

Not to mix threads,   but do you freeze Johnny O's upon receipt??

 

Yes!  John is a great guy to work with and the cigars are top pf the mark!!!

I have never frozen before but doing so for custom rolleds makes sense.

 

When my order arrived yesterday I checked my custom rolleds humidor and found one dried adult beetle inside. No damage found. Cigars are now in the fridge and going into freezer tonight.

Curious about the current stock of lanceros. Let us, or me, know how it smokes. Thanks in advance.
