yep - the PEs are a different beast from the regular Edmundos. The large ring gauge intact, but the PE is a bombshell of a 15 minute smoke, packed with flavor like no other. I don't think it makes much of a difference if the Cuban is maduro or not...i mean as you said, you smoke MC 2s and often times if you find a darker one it might be nice, but it also might be a bit of a psychological comfort effect factored in. I also like PSD4s that appear darker in color. I was recently acquainted with a cigar company that is looking to position itself in the luxury market throughout Asia/Europe...one of their cigars was a "5 country Maduro" which involved some Cuban tobacco blended with Maduro from 4 other places. It was a great smoke, but there are many regular Cuban cigars one can find that are comparable in quality.
