.....after smoking the 'top-shelf priced' DIAMOND CROWN & DUNHILL AGED, I concluded the flavor difference between high mild Connecticut wrapped cigars does not justify a $15.00 price tag. But what is with these grassy-ass Connecticut blends? I have run into two over the past month, one being LA PRINCESA de CUBA, and now this PRIVATE STOCK #14 (6.5"x50) by DAVIDOFF. While the #14 is better tasting then the La Princesa, and they both smoke perfectly with a nice burn and awesome draw, the #14 teeters on the edge of no flavor with mild grass undertones. PRIVATE STOCK should be Rated 70, and is smokeable if you have no other options, and it did get better at the half-way mark. Thank Christ I still have a few FONSECA SERIE 'F' ROBUSTO's on hand. And two Connecticut prospects, that I have high hopes for, arriving tomorrow, XEN by Nish Patel Flight Sampler, and DON TOMAS SPECIAL EDITION CONNECTICUT TORO (6" x 52), that will hold me until I get my favorite in at month end, the high mild, nutty tasting PADILLA HYDRID, and another 'maybe over-priced' line, the GURKHA WIDOW MAKER CHURCHILL (7" x 52).
