Cigars - Page 16

post #226 of 10898
Had my first Padron 3000 last night and can see why it is so popular. May have to pick up a case to add to the humidor.

I have always liked the burn and flavor of the Arturo Fuente Anejo Shark #77 and for a mild smoke the Diamond Crown Robusto #3!

I find Punch DC to be the most consistent, but obviously not on the same end of the spectrum as the Lusi in terms of body.

I think it is a Lonsdale. Perhaps Partagas 989. The only explanation to his comment I can offer ; it's a Dominican Partagas that he have smoked, as Cuban one's are as good as ever. Actually Partagas 989 and Lusitania are my fav. cigars. I just never have enough time for either.

Does anyone have any of the Rocky Patel Decade Torpedos that they would like to sell or can find and do a box split on?

I know for a face davidoff on madison (in nyc) has the robusto, I can check on the torpedos if you would like.

No, as I said above, its a Series D No. 4, and those are not Doms.

Interestingly, I gave the Padron 3000 another chance, and was pleasantly surprised. I think I may have smoked the first too soon after arrival, and without letting it acclimatize after shipping. Not bad at all.

989? I've heard of the 8-9-8 but dont think i have seen the 989...

that long Parta in his humidor looks a lot like the Lusi, didn't see the D4.

On a related note the D4 Reserva is one of the best cigars i have ever smoked, i am afraid to smoke them as they feel so precious. when they hit the 10 year mark i might finish them all off in one go (they were already at 5 yrs when they came out). The Monte 4 reserva is a rip off though. I think they shouldve gone with #2 instead.

I love the Partagas 8-9-8, and all Partagas generally. Those two cigars in that pic do look like Lusis. I'll have to try a Lusi before long.

Another I want to try is the Punch Super Robusto Asia Pacific Edition. I've been eyeing them for a while but haven't wanted to pay the 3000 yen per stick.

the punch super robusto is a really bad cigar...at the moment anyway. way too young, the ones ive smoked showed no character whatsoever it was practically flavorless. Leads me to assume either 1) it's too young or 2) its too mild for my palate. I'd have to say maybe a bit of both...give it at least another year before you pull the trigger. However the Ramon Allones Estupendo is a great cigar, a chameleon of a smoke that switches beats on you throughout.

I never liked D-4, completely agree with you. They were spun by m,any sources and individual reviewrs as a nirvana ,but when i tryed them (around 6 years ago) they were very mediocre with funky aftretaste half-way into cigar.

I love the SD4, great medium-full bodied (as far as cubans go) robusto. They are even pretty solid young. They have been much better lately, 2006 being their best year in a while imo.

The D4 is just ok but nothing great. I much prefer the P2 and smoke them frequently. They're not hard to find in Tokyo.

Generally, it seems that cigar makers reserve their best tobaccos and rollers for torpedos. The Montecristo #2 is a good example.
