Le Petite...only reasons for me, I like the size, and it's been the best tasting of all I've tried.

Le Elegance tasted best to me. I've also enjoyed the Le Grande. I've got a couple of Le Monde in the humi waiting to try. The box pressed Le Matine is also great. Hard to go wrong with these. Just get a sampler and decide for yourself.

One of my favorite sticks, period. Had one yesterday on a drive with the wife, I friggin' love 'em and they fit in my vintage tortiose celluloid clam-shell case.

Le Petite was my favorite until I smoked the Le Taureau. The Le Taureau is a flavor bomb.

I thought Le Ferme was pretty good. I had 10 of those last year. I'm looking forward to trying one of the Le Grandes I have resting.

They all get amazing if you sit on them for a while. I prefer the Le Petite as well, because the wrapper is so flavorful.

I wouldn't mind seeing that blend in a 4x50 short robusto size.

I have to agree with this, with the petite close on its heels.

For me the smaller ring guages do it, in the Epernay (and Illusione) line.
#1 Le Elegance.
#2 Le Petite.

The Le Elegance is great, but to me they are all pretty awesome with some age on them.

All the guys saying the smaller ring gauge the better, have you tried the Le Taureau? I was right there with you until I tried the three new bigger box pressed sizes.

Just wondering.
