    Mike's Cigars has these on special for only $14.95/bundle of 25. I know they're supposedly 2nds of La Gloria Habana &/or La Flor Dominicana, and that these longer ones (7.5 x 48 ring) are supposedly mixed filler. But has anyone tried them? Thoughts? I'm tempted to buy a bundle, as even if...

    Hi all, I'll be visiting S.Florida next week and I have a couple of questions about these places, specificaly about El Rey de los Habanos. My past experience with el Credito tells me that there is not much of a price savings at the factory compared to what you can get at an online retailer or...

    I was told that the El Credito was from the same factory as La Gloria Cubana, and as much as I favor La Gloria Cubana, I had to get some from c-bid. I bought a bundle from c-bid and within two days I had a surprise on my doorstep "wonderfull shipping" My first impression taking the first...

    I bought an El Credito at Holt's more than a year ago, based upon the price and the fact that LGC cigar master Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. looks Lex Luthorishly intense in a way that I relate to. The 5.5x43 maduro was right around two bucks. After a year in my tupperdor I finally took it out for...

    As I mentioned on another thread I was doing some reading tonight which = CI catalogue. I saw the El Credito Apprentice bundles. Sounds like it could be a decent stick for when you just want to smoke a stick but are not sure if you'll finish it or for the Moochadore. Anyone ever purchase...

    I bought some El Credito cigars a while back, which are apprentice-rolled cigars from the same factory where La Gloria Cubano is made. Supposedly, according to the company web site, the same quality tobacco and the same blends are used. Obviously, the construction may be spotty due to the...

    Do you remember halloween as a kid? When you'd put log of dog-crap in a bag, put it on someone's doorstep, then light it and run like hell, hiding in the bushes to see the poor hapless homeowner rush outside and stomp the fire out, covering their slippers in doggy-dung? Well friends, I was...

    I LUV La Gloria Cubana. My favorites are the Wavell and Hermoso...in maduro, of course. Has anyone smoked any of the bundled El Credito seconds? Famous has a deal on the small coronas (4.5x40), maduro, of course, and I would be interested in the comments of anyone that has tried this brand...
  13. Habanos Reviews
    Had one of the El Creditos today. In case you've missed it, these are an everyday cheap Cuban cigar that is not exported. These were sent to me by my uncle in Cuba. My dad said they were one peso each (exchange rate of about 26 pesos to one dollar) or roughly 4 cents, LOL. The draw was...

    Hoping this helps clear up the confusion concerning the El Creditos my parents brought back from Cuba. This is from an interview on cigarreview.com with Ernesto Perez Carillo. CWRM: When did you come to live in the United States? EPC: In 1959 my father who was producing the El Credito line...
  15. Non-Habanos Reviews
    I have always liked the LGC (who dosen't?) and thought I'd try a bundle of these. I picked up the No.1's in maduro they're really quite good. I was suprised to find that the level of quality was as high as it is and I'm sure that many of you already know this. I did notice though that some of...
