Ok being a poor American, I have not had the opportunity to smoke many Cubans. The first chance I got was in the mid 90's. A couple of very nice fellow cigars lovers (on ASC) sent me some through the mail, I would say about 15 to 20 cigars of various brands. I do remember that there were Bolivars and Cohiba robustos and some Partagas; there were a few other brands as well. I was excited, and made sure these babies were properly humidified, and I waited till just the right moment. I have to say, however, that I was underwhelmed. There was no "wow" factor as I had anticipated there would be. I was crestfallen. On reflection, over time, I think that there simply were not enough cigars to provide a good sampling, and, therefore, my judgment of Cubans should be softened by this fact. I am thinking that to provide a true assessment, one needs to smoke, say, 10 to 20 cigars of the same brand and smoke them in varying conditions. I do believe Cubans are superior; I have too many friends, whom I trust, that support that view. What do you guys think? Was there simply too small a sampling? Were you blown away by the first Cuban? Perhaps my expectations were just too high. What say you?
