    It's always nice to see hard work pay off for quality cigar makers! I've smoked a few of the sticks and have enjoyed them.

    Thank you for providing what in my opinion is a reference guide on the best boutique brand of cigars, top to bottom in the whole industry.

    The Capa Natural is the same blend as the PDR 1878 Cubano Especial Maduro except it has a Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. The white banded Capas have the 4 year old CT wrapper giving them a more refined taste as opposed to the ones distributed through Thompsons.

    These will be available in 3 months.

    BOLD, RICH and FULL FLAVOR is what Chavet claims of their cigars.

    This is a very fitting description of these Don Leoncio factory rolled beauties which get their charge from the Brazilian Bahia Maduro wrapper, Dominican binder and Nicaraguan and Dominican filler.

    These are available in:

    Churchill 7 x 48

    Corona Gorda 5 5/8 x 46

    Robusto 5 x 52

    Toro 6 x 50

    Torpedo 6 ½ x 52

    Bryan is a professional photographer who has a huge catalog of pics of a huge variety of cigars.

    Checkout his work on www.cigarobsession.com where you will get a real dose of cigar porn plus some righteous reviews of many of the stogies discussed here on botl

    Man, Someone should put all these together in paper, and make a cigar encyclopedia, with all the history, and different cigars.

    I just bought my first box of PDR 1878 Capa Madura. Smoking one now, ROTT. Very nice and smooth. A box of 20 coronas was $60. What a deal! Thanks for the excellent thread. Abe sounds like a good egg :)
