I've asked this question to myself many times, and as the years have gone by it has changed somewhat. At this moment I can say my top 3 favorite Master Blenders are; (if you have more please feel free to list them).
1- E.P. Carrillo: always consistent with his blends from start to finish, never...
Well another installment of I got bombed by shuckins... Ron definitely hit the nail on the head with this one. I really, really prefer Corona and Robusto sizes and that's what he hit me with - plus of course some I've never tried, some CC's, a troop cigar and a tube! Does it get any better...
Apparently, being a ninja and a squid, Derek was able to sneak by my perimeter!
My camera's on the fritz (either the computer won't recognize it or the camera has some issues) and I can't post the sliminess and that's too bad cause the letter is great as well as the sticks.

I am not one to develop official reviews of any cigar. I simply enjoy smoking every single one I can get my hands on and giving a healthy yea or a timid nay to the experience.
