It may be the difference in ring gauge; the Cazadores gives you little sips, where the Belicoso gives you big gulps. A fairer comparison would be a Bolivar in a similar vitola to the Cazadores.
Last night, I had a Montecristo #2 and loved it. This and the H. Upmann #2 are really pleasurable, tasty smokes that I look forward to repeating.
This afternoon over espresso, I enjoyed a Ramon Allones Petit Club Corona. This and the Petit Punch are my favorite small smokes so far.
