The Petit Corona is my favorite, but have been enjoying the Belicoso Fino lately.

I like GM's and pc's, myself.
Boli isn't at all my favorite marca, but there are certainly some gems in there, even for me.

I prefer the Royal Coronas and the Petit Coronas, with honorable mention going to the PC Junior.

My absolute fav was the Coronas Extra, but alas, they've gone the way of the dodo.

For me, hands down the CJ's followed closely by the PC's then RC's.

As for the ER's, I dig the Britanicas and the Especiales No. 2.

I'm a big fan of the PCs especially with a few years on them.

Simones is my all-time fav regional in terms of flavor consistency and value

Default Re: What Bolívar had the best flavor profile for you?

perhaps the most "complex" Cuban cigar...coronas junior.

earthier yet just as satisfying...petit corona.

although I smoke more pc's...I remain convinced that the junior is a better cigar.

The Corona Junior is a great smoke, but I usually buy the PCs.

I will have to explore this. So far I've been enamored with the Belicoso Finos and Royal Coronas purely due to preference in size at the moment.

I have purchased BPC cabs, and while I think they're ok, I don't see why people rave about them. If the CJs are not as "dirty" as you say, I may be in for a treat!

ps - why is the dancing banana called "noon"

Long ago, someone photoshopped my face onto the dancing banana (not the smiley used here but the animated gif). One of the other TOE thought it funny to name the smiley after me. To that I say

None of my BPC cabs are ready to smoke. However, my BPC dress boxes from 2011 and 2012 are smoking amazing. Luck of the draw, I guess.
