I'm not at all of the Tatuaje lancero. The Cohiba original Lancero is likely my favorite, but of the US legal ones, gotta stick with the Oliva Serie V. I couldn't believe Tatuaje made a lancero. I'm even more surprised it's so subpar.

Smoked a Dunhill Signed robusto and it was anything but interesting. Very bland, very boaring.

In relation to the disagreement about the above referenced cigar, while tastes differ, I always try a cigar more than once, and preferably from more than one box, before passing judgment.

Disagree, ever since 2000 the cubans have increased production and inversely the quality has gone down the drain... Right now you're looking at the 2007 or at best the 2006 box date in the shops which are quite frankly not to good to look at. Tried the n2 just for a change in diet(mostly dominican and nicaraqua) and it was as I suspected; a cigar that was rushed into the shops and other than its name doesnt have much to speak for it.

On the general subject, imagine what would happen if the embargo would be lifted...it would probably double the prices and half the quality that it has left right now...

Nah, for the time being I'd prefer a good oliva v, fuente anejo or a padron... Much better quality for your buck!

I've only had one Cuban Montecristo. It was good, but nothing to shoot a load over. I was talking with the owner of Draper's Tobacco in DC and he said that Cuba's getting a large amount of its tobacco from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic to keep up with the world wide demand for the cigars. Anyone else hear about this?

Could be, but i guess that it would only be for their cheaper product lines... Maybe they would work the tobacco into the cigarillos, that I can imagine...

I totally disagree with this. In the 90s cubans had a lot of problems with poor draw and inconsitency. This continued into the early 2000s, but 2005 and on Cubans have come back in a big big way. 2006 was one of the best years for cubans in a while.

I agree with you that Olivas and especially Padrons are fantastic cigars, but Most of the cubans I buy cost less than both of these cigars. Maybe you are overpaying for your cubans?

Could be, most of the price here is made up by taxes(40%) . Monte's n2 does about 9,20 euro here. V series do about a euro or more less. But on the quality topic, the cubans I had recently where 2006 boxed, and felt like sponges, had an inconsistent burn and just seemed to need more shelf time... Have to admit that I havent tried the cohiba's yet though....

well there could be issues of storage by your vendor. I always leave my boxes which I get from spain in my humidor for at least a month before I smoke them. You never know how they store them or what happened in the shipping process (for me at least). If you want a site where you can get a box of No 2s for around 230 bucks, let me know, Ill PM it to ya.

I am sure he has an inside line into the Cuban government, or better yet, this came from a friend who has a family member who lives in Cuba. If anything, they would have been doing this in the 90s during the cigar boom. The demand has dropped since then and leveled off.

Ahh, now I understand... spain traditionally gets the first pick in altadis(habanos) stocks... Its them and then the rest of the world, which would mean that the one's you're having would be a bit better in quality then what we here in holland are getting...
