I haven't smoked many PDR cigars so far, but I noticed most of the darker wrappers give off a lot of smoke when resting, a case in point being the Pinar Del Rio Liga Especial Reserva Superior, which sizzles away like a creosote factory after an air raid and gives off a pungent waxy odor as if...

I've recently smoked some LIMITADA RESERVA 2nd's from CI - robusto & corona & a reserve oscuro churchill from 07/08 & am finding them very much in my flavor profile! Worst thing is I dont even know who the blender is??
Anyone care to share any thoughts on this brand?

I can get the following two boxes... As soon as each slot is filled (per box) and payments are received I'll order these. Both are 5ers.

My apologies in advance for the lack of sophistication and referential power, but I thought a newb's view on a couple of cigars might be fun, and it gives me the opportunity to document my growing appreciation for finer tobacco.

So these are about to hit the market. If you want to see how good they look, check out this thread. Anyhow, I'm 98% sure I have a lock on them from one of few stores that is actually going to get them. They run $24/stick or $105/box of 5 and are very limited from what I'm told. If...
