El Trovador corona gorda

This is a cigar from Pinar Del Rio, a company that was hit or miss for me years ago but has been pretty consistently good recently.

The first thing you notice about this cigar is that they were...

Diesel d. 10th torpedo ROTT

The only other Diesel I've ever tried (as far as I remember) is a Connecticut wrap one that came out a while back. I thought they were just OK. But recently I needed a 5 pack or two to make the...

Re: Buying cigars directly from manufacturers?

They got back to me today. Apparently, my cigars were 'inspected' by Customs and returned to them. :confused:

Re: Buying cigars directly from manufacturers?

Thanks. I sent an email a few days ago asking if they still ship to the US. No response yet. I ordered a couple of samplers from them many years ago and I remember liking the cigars a lot.

Re: Buying cigars directly from manufacturers?

I placed an order with them back in December. They never shipped it and wouldn't answer my emails, so I had to initiate a chargeback with the credit card company.

Buying cigars directly from manufacturers?

Hey all, call me paranoid, but I think the FDA will someday crack down on cigars so hard that buying them in the US will be extremely difficult and expensive. Aside from CCs, have you ever bought...

Re: Lancero love

I've tried a few Oliva Vs and didn't like them. If I see some lanceros I'll grab one.

Losing some love for Pepin lately

Had a couple of nasty My Father lanceros, a really bad Cuban Classic, and I just snuffed out my first La Duena. Has production taken precedence over quality? The tobacco in all three of these cigars...

Re: Lancero love

I never tried those! But I was a huge fan of the Casa Torano tubos. They were a lonsdale-ish size and were amazing. Those and the Tribute were my favorites.

I used to smoke Toranos fairly often back in the day. Then, over the years they sort of became a CI/Cbid bargain brand and I lost interest.
