Re: Is La Riqueza done?

It looks like Pete really wants to imitate Habanos--eliminate great smokes from regular production.... :-(

Re: Your first box purchase?

El Rico Habanos back in 2004.

I _still_ like them after all these years--but they need a few years to mellow out properly.

Re: Camacho

Camacho is a shadow of its former self--those old corojos were _so_ good.

The Barrel Aged are the best of the current bunch imho--but not in the same league as the old corojos.
