The blend is different.
The PoW is a lighter cigar compared to the Churchill. More of a morning/daytime cigar. Nice flavors.
These are getting a bit harder to find as they are going the way of the third churchill in the RyJ line, the Clemenceau.

Some guys really seem to like the POW - however I personally don't find them worth searching out. If you find the RyJ churchills too strong for your tastes - you might consider giving the Prince of Wales a try.

It is kind of like the H. Upmann thing with the Sir Winston and Monarchs.
There's a real difference besides just the blend on the Upmann's, according to an earlier thread- there's also fermentation differences between the two models to justify the price difference.

The R&J's are in similar price points, not true with the Upmann's.

I would like to try a PoW some time, they look hard to find.

I remember visiting the LCDH at 5th & 23rd and standing there looking at BOXES of R&J Churchills, Prince of Whales, and Clemenceaus all stacked side by side.

Like others have said the POW is milder but damn tasty when they draw which is rarely, ime. IMO they are overfilled and heavy box pressed. Not worth any price. If I had any left I'd send you a dowel rod. :D

I'm not much of a fan of the PoW. However, the RyJ Churchill is a favorite. I like the strength that the Churchill brings.

The one thing I will say though, is that the RyJ Churchill needs time and is best smoked with a significant amount (>5years) of age.

The RyJ Churchills are readily available at most reputable tobacconists. I'm surprised your having trouble getting these.

The Prince of Wales has been discontinued. They are getting fairly hard to find. So if you are waiting for your tobacconist to "get them in", you may be waiting for quite some time!
