Yup - same feelings here. They all share a similar thread IMO, so anything in my top 10 I’d be happy to smoke for the rest of my life. And that includes smokes like the lovely/lowly RGPC.Word. There’s something about the box press that’s just not quite as nice as a beautiful, perfectly round cigar from a cab.
Question for all of you that have answered so far: if you were told that you could only have your second or third choice and not your first, what would your level of disappointment be?
I’m not sure I would be all that terribly upset. Like, if my beloved Punch Punch were removed from the table, I could easily fall back on H Upmann Connie 1’s, or HdM Ep2, or ERDM CS, or... or...
Anyone else feel that way?
I got quite alarmed until I read the post you quoted from @mwlabel that it was the Panatelas were discontinued. I read "PLP" and thought Picadores. Either one being cut sucks, but I'm a huge fan of the Picadores.I would have chosen the PLP as well if not for the fact that it has been discontinued
All true, but the Fundys are still closer to a classic lonsdale size than a classic lancero size.Meh, they're the same size as a number of NC lanceros, so I tend to think of them that way. Vitolas tend to have some flexibility, especially when you include the whole rather than pigeon-hole to CC or NC. Like, there are some CC called "robustos" but they are 4.88 not 5 inches long. Other examples out there, your mileage may vary, etc.
