Didn't quite catch it but at some point I'm sure caramel is mentioned. Might be wrong. See if you can spot it...

Interesting to see this. I smoked one this morning (EMA Oct 08 code). Didn't get the caramel, unfortunately. Got these from the Czar in 2013. Enjoyable cigar...

Do you guys think these are at their peak now? I just want a good excuse to finish the half of the box that I have now :D:P

Great review gents.  One of the few regionals I ever sprung for a full box of.  I have only had a handful so far but I really like this cigar.

This is the third review of the PL Belicosos Extra from the same code.

  • The first review (December, 2008, age 0.4 years) consensus score was 86.5.
  • The second review (May, 2012, age 3.9 years) consensus score was 90.7.
  • This review's (June, 2017, age 9.0 years) consensus score was 94.

If it were me, I'd be smoking these over the next year or so, without much regret!

Perfect :D Time for me to start digging into them again!

Glad to see these are coming along, and representing the marca well. I vividly recall the mediocre reviews on these early and as a result these are still readily available and at less than $15 a stick are a great buy (especially considering some of these recent releases (RG 88--I'm talking about you) are going for $19/stick.

When figure that a box of 2008 BBF is starting to get close to that price the PLBE left are the market are practically a bargain

I have a box and can confirm that the most recent one I tried (about 2 months ago) had indeed turned into a caramel stick for the first half but I think that particular stick needed even a bit longer.

Smoked one tonight. 6th from a box from our host. Caramel note is increasing for sure but the smoking time is not as all are so underfilled. A real pity as it ruins what could be a really great cigar.

Is it possible to mention during the review if the box is a PE, HQ, or PSP?  Just to see how the cigars others might of purchased measure up.

Had one tonight as well. This particular one was underfilled too. Good caramel flavors though!
