As I tend to smoke the robusto and smaller sizes, I have had many of the the smaller sized cigars and few of the churchills and DCs. As far as Partagas is concerned, I am working on boxes of PSD4s and shorts, but I have never had a Lusitania. I have my eye on some Lusitanias from current production (early 2004) and was wondering what y'all thought of 'em. How do they compare to the PSD4 and the shorts? As I understand it, most agree that the 1998 and previous were terrific...just wondering what was thought of the more recent Lusitanias.

Not an expert, but I like the PSD4 much better then the Lusi. I have purchased and smoked both recently, and the PSD4 just seems to me to have a much fuller taste then the Lusi. The Lusi was very good, but just a bit milder then the PSD4.

PSD4 may be my new fav., but tonight I may give a BBF cabinet a chance to take over that role. They are neck and neck right now for me. Of course the Monte2s are right there as well for me. :D

Partagas is my fav. brand (next to Boli). I smoke lots of D4's and Lusitanias. The Lusi is a totally different smoke than a D4. If you approach it as thinking it will be like smoking a bigger D4 you will be dissapointed. It is a more refined cigar with a lot more complex flavors. It is milder than a D4, as most D.C.'s are. It has a spicy woodsy flavor, and remains almost creamy throughout. Not as earthy as a D4.The aroma is awsome. I find I enjoy this complex smoke more in the afternoon, or a couple hours or so after dinner. I love both cigars and it just depends what mood I'm in(or how much time I have) for which I'm going to smoke. Hope this helps.
Fred. :D

Actually, think about four friends. You would be the fifth person.

Fredster, your comments regarding the Lusi are on target. MRN describes the D4 as a short Lusi and I never understood what he meant because I have also seen them as entirely different cigars. I love the Lusi as a long afternoon smoke when I have time to really enjoy the flavors as they develop whereas the D4 is more of regular go to stick for me, excellent in its own right.
