Hm, seems to me that everyone agreed that a) it's bullshit that CCs are garbage before 2 years of aging have passed ; b) it's bullshit that NCs are magically exempt from requiring any aging.
So while I have my own pet theory about why only Americans trash CCs on a regular basis, which is purely my own, everyone seems to be in basic agreement that you're wrong. Go back and read the debate. No one comes even remotely close to agreeing with you, even NC lovers. Work on your reading comprehension, then come back when you're ready.

Anyone who claims that CC cigars are as approachable as top notch NC cigars right out of the box is insane. Try some padron, anejos, opus x's. The balance, the flavor, it cant be touched.
I've said it for a long time, Cuba has the best tobacco, but the rest of the world makes the best cigars. Better quality, they give them more time to age, et cetera.
Unlike the average guy on the street, I source all of my cigars online, so access to NCs isn't a problem. I also grew up in North America, where they were plentiful. I admit I have smoked some I enjoyed, but I had to pay around $25 a stick to find anything that compared to my favourite CCs (a very good padron 25th anniversary). When I can have an equivalent or better experience for less than $7, why should I bother?
