    VGS is an excellent cigar!

    I had a Ghurka Louis XIII today. Nice midday smoke.

    DPG Series JJ. Very nice smoke, perfect draw, just the right amount of earth. I love the Cuban Classic, but this is a good smoke.

    Never, bought one for tonight though, so I'll post a review when I do. The JJ was a very nice cigar, much better than I remembered, robusto. Not sure I like it as much as the CC, but damn, Pepin is a magician; I've never had a bad DPG cigar.

    Just lighted up a Perdomo Patriarch. The first third is a even burn, a taste of dark cocao, slightly creamy. It burns slow too!

    Cohibas tend to be medium bodied, even by cuban standards. These days there really is no full bodied habanos cigar (maybe B BF, maybe Party Lusi, but not really). So the epsi's really don't pack much of a punch, but they do have a lot of flavor, and are pretty well balanced.

    Sadly, I agree. Sometimes you get a particular box that is full-bodied but there is no brand that is consistently full-bodied. Maybe it is because they are cooking the tobacco or using legitimately aged stuff? Maybe it is the new genetic strains or there is a shortage of ligero? Dunno.

    I would guess it has something to do with ligero. Theres none of that bold spice in most habanos today that ligero tends to give you.

    Smoke an 07 or 08 Partagas Serie du Conn. #3 and tell me it isn't full bodied or at the very least, medium bodied. My May 08 Lusitainias are also pretty full.

    Full flavored I'll give you, but full bodied? Maybe it's all the nic cigars and 2x and 3x ligero cigars which have changed my pallet.

    Sitting in my garage smoking and ERDM choix supreme. Weather sucks, garage is a mess, but the cigar is a thing of beauty.

    Had the JJ Maduro last night and man, even though I am not a fan of the maduro at all, this one was great, and better than the natural I am thinking. I may pick another one up today to confirm.
