I also touted their quality to a few other people in front of the roller....they also bought some and Sr. Moncado rewarded my salesmanship with 4 additional free cigars. They are NOT tightly rolled, but definitely a 50 minute + smoke...leathery...tasty and mild. The price went up to $20/7...but up the stairs to the right was another store with Cubans @ $15 ea. I've tried 'em all and Cubans are not worth me. A good Dominican is just as good, so don't be lured into the mystique.
Opinions vary greatly.

And since you've tried them all, we'd love to hear more about your perceptions of the individual marcas/vitolas.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
