So far today stuck indoors have had an '02 LGC#3, '07 Cohiba CE...today will be a long day of smoking. '01 du Dauphin, '99 Punch DC and '08 Punch DC if I have time. Want to compare the flavors of the DC and see how recent production is.
If you're talking about recent 08 production, I would say suck it up and get both--they are both excellent cigars and choices. Or get one and then get one box of the Partagas Petit Coronas Especiales (~80).
Smoking some '85 Lusitanias on my birthday along with the 1492 tomorrow, can't wait.
