    Anyone know if the recent Nacionales are comparable to the ORs from five years ago? Haven't had either, but concerned they may have lost something as the Pepin brand has expanded. Thanks for any insight.
  2. General Cigar Discussion
    I am thinking of trying these. I have enjoyed Camacho Corojos in the Monarca size in the past. I am intrigued by the thinner ring gauge version of the Corojo. It is a 5.5x44. I think that is a good size. A little thicker than a standard corona. I am finding reviews online rather scarce. So...

    Meant to be something like a JLP, the cigar looks similar to many cubans with a somewhat dry, rough, light to medium brown, thin wrapper and trippl... Read the full review here: Nacionales W Robusto Cigar Review - Cubanesque?

    Anyone have experience with these cheapies? See a smoking deal on them and the only info on Quintero's here I've found have been about its brothers. Brevas and Londres Extras. It sounds like the Nacionales is the lightest version of the group. Anyway the deal is 50 Q'Ns and 24 Fonseca...

    A little history.... Nacionales W was created by Pepin Garcia in his Miami, FL factory El Rey de Los Habanos. This blend was designed by Pepin to mimic the cigars that he and his fellow rollers in Cuba smoked in the factories. He always called it the National Blend because every cigar smoker...

    Camacho Corojo Nacionales gnukfu was my FTG in the Newbie Sampler Trade and I was a first time trader when he hit me up with this stick. Thought I post a review of it. 0.0 - 2.0 = poor/inferior quality 2.1 - 2.9 = fair 3.0 - 3.5 = good 3.5 - 4.5 = excellent 4.6 - 5.0 = superior 1) Aesthetics...

    I've worked my way through a corona sampler that I bought a few months ago from CK. Probably I've favored the HyG, Cuban Diplomat (Conn Shade) and Nacionales W above HLs and HSs. At any rate, to my taste I find Nacionales W a strong med with cocoa/coffee flavor and plenty of spice from that...

    5 ½ x 44 - Corona These box pressed Honduran Puros have a smooth oily Criollo wrappers, the color is uniform from head to foot, and from cigar to cigar across the box. The texture is smooth and even only the smallest of veins. Construction is very consistent, firm, not hard or soft and even...

    NOPE!!! It's not another review on the Puros line! But it IS a testament to the value of letting them-their-gal's rest in the humi for a spell! What WAS a rather harsh and dry Nacioneles just 6 weeks ago became a wonderfully mellow, nutty/spicy smoke last night. It's kinda' like my wife's...
  10. Non-Habanos Reviews
    I bought a couple of these during the holidays because I was looking for a fairly inexpensive cigar that I could still enjoy with my brother-in-law (who doesn't smoke much). I didn't feel like spending a lot of cash for a cigar on someone who wouldn't be able to appreciate the difference. At...

    Probably the closest thing to a cuban cigar out there. Tastes very similar to a cuban Ramon Allones - Strong peppery spice and FULL bodied. I loved it! :u
