This is a discussion on new stock for the week within the Cigar Pictures forums, part of the The Gallery category; i got these from cbid and cigar auctioneer and CI
these where a 5 er and 5 bucks, ill give ...
There was a guy at the local smoke shop that smokes those Red White and Blue label ones (and he loves them for an everyday smoke). Flor de something, don't remember what they are called. The Maroma are hit and miss for me, I think out of the bunch you will like the Gran Habano's the best, but thats just one mans opinion. They all look good, just wish this damn cold would go away. The other I have never tried, but heard about. Let us know
well, so far i have tried the maroma maduro and it is def smokable! and i also had the RP jr connies and it was good, not great but good, and lastly, i tried the famous value line 400 and it too was very smokable as well. i didnt get too much smoking time in due to humidity outside. should be nice next week so i shall get to more puffin!
So rest easy, my man. This is the the 90-rated Gran Habano Corojo #5 blend composed of full-bodied, Habano-seed long-fillers from Nicaragua and Dominican but it boasts a juicy Nicaraguan-grown Corojo wrapper leaf cultivated back in 2002, one which has enjoyed an extended cedar-nap for the past 8 years. The outcome is virtuous: a deep series of rich, creamy flavors smacking of coffee, nuts, and earth tamed by the smooth, Cuban-esque qualities of a well-aged Corojo leaf. The Gran Habano Vintage 2002 remains medium to full-bodied but maintains a wonderful balance and long, elegant finish.
