@Miranda010 I know the market asks for them, but when manufacturers don't smoke 80 ring gauge, 70 ring gauge, or even 60 ring gauge cigars; maybe we need to better educate the market.

What is up with these 70 and 80 ring gauge smokes? Stop already; it's a disgrace.
You are absolutely correct Brooks; these cigars improved in every category with aging.

@BigBoy_Sonoma I will say that it comes down to what impresses you. While my list is completely different this is a list they worked on and found what they all loved. What makes it a real list and not a list for masses is that it contains LE smokes.

Nice list Charlie and crew, very nice list.
The smokes I had were not plugged but I would not be surprised if there were some construction issues with this smoke and others. Dion knows whats up down there and monitors production and checks his product before going out.

@Charlie Minato My beef was that this should have been the same price range as the other cigars. I loved that it was a classic piramides but it should have been a part of the release and get rid of the humongous Churchill/Double Corona. I have seen these at the $18 price range and even a $2 difference doesn't change anything.

Some solid points made Charlie. I believe they are trying to compete with the boutique brands on the market but at $20 it is not the way to do it. They need to be making cigars like this or better that are in the $9 price range like other boutique companies. I think General needs to do this as well with the Cohiba brand. Also agree with your comments in regards to the Epic No. 2 secondary band. The original packaging is superior to this and you can't mix this new age design with a classic design.
