    I'm a full bodied lover, myself and I find these to be first class cigars. Are there any other fans out there? I'd love to compare notes. I buy El Rico's buy the boxes and they are always nice and plume loaded. The only cigar that I've had close to the flavor and consistency is The Joya...

    I remember having some of the robusto and corona gorda size a few years ago and really enjoying them. I guess what I want to know is: -Are they still being produced? -If so, are they still good (since EPC stopped being involved with production)?

    How do you guys feel about El Rico Habano cigars? I had one thats been hanging out for about a week in my humidor. It came in a paper-box 3-pack so I didn't see that it had a cracked wrapper. The crack didn't effect the draw or let in any air but I wasn't impressed with the flavor. Is it...

    I'm going to be in Puerto Rico for about a month for work, and was wondering if anyone knows of any pipe shops there. I actually don't know which part of Puerto Rico yet (sadly) so any suggestions are fair game.
