    Anone smoke these cigars recently? recommendations.

    Feel I have come full circle in the cigar hobby. Fast too! Started with cheap NC's, got better NC's, made it to Habanos, and now... all I want is a flavorful, smooth smoke that won't break the bank. Something that burns for an hour or a bit more. $3-$7 is fine (I'd much rather pay for better...

    Smokes more complex/tasty and flavorful than RP vintage line?

    In my short time as a smoker, I tried SPDM's, GR #5 Corojo, JDN Antono, PAM alts, Pedromos, etc and of course RP 90/92 seconds. NO Pepins yet. Black labels are in the mail. I am amazed at the complexity of the RP Vintage line, and how the cigar develops over time. A little purging is...
