A friend of mine wont smoke nothing but mx2 robusto, toro, bellicosa, and why is it that the mx2 has to be exact humidity and temp or it taste so bad according to him. I had a bad experience in the summer with a robusto and never smoked another one i was physically ill from a robusto yet the camerron or italia dont bother me
The Italia is a personal favorite of mine. I also like the gold for a breakfast cigar. The MX2 is too peppery for me, I don't care for it all that much. I will say that construction problems have not been something that I've experienced, or heard a lot about others having experienced. I think it's true for EVERY cigar that if it's not taken care of appropriately, that you will have issues. I believe there are bum sticks in every brand, it's just a bad luck of the draw when it happens to someone who catches a bad break. I'd buy another(perhaps from another vendor?) and give it a shot. CAO is a heck of a good maker of cigars and I haven't been terribly disappointed by them in the past, I've had just about every line of cigar they offer.
I really enjoy the MX2 and have smoked my share of them, but I too have had a few issues with them. Some seem to be released a bit early, and can have some burn, and flavor issues. The torp seems to be the one I have the most problem with. At times, toward the last 3rd of the cigar, I've gotten very strong ammonia taste, and the burn is never right. The robusto seems to have less of an issue with the above.
