    Your welcome Rudy. Sometime we miss some elements when we smoke a cigar the first time. It is always a good idea to smoke at lest 2-3 cigars before we determine our like or dislike of a cigar. Please share you opinion when you smoke the second. I am really curious.

    Thanks for the review
    Tried this very stick little over a year ago, was underwhelmed and didnt think it warranted the price tag. May give it another shot as I only tried the one.

    I agree, Plus my palate has evolved since last time I tried it, so your review has definately inspired me to give one another go.

    Well, just tried another, this one was found in my humi and had a year on it.. This was a very good smoke, so much so I'm beginning to think my memory is failing me.. The first third really stood out and was very flavorfull,, Damnt rip now Im gonna have to get a couple more, purely for experimental reasons,,,,;o)

    Thanks Steve. If you compare the price vs value then Pyramid easily beat the 1966.

    Hi Rudy, I knew that you would enjoyed it the second time because it is a good cigar. We should always smoke 3-4 cigars to understand its performance. However, at the same time, there are also few cigar can wow us from the first puff but they are very rare. Thanks for sharing the picture.

    And there are some cigars that are just dogs. I guess it also comes down to $$ when some cigars are at a certain pricepoint I dont feel lthat it should warrant an expenditure of 3 or 4 to determine if its a keeper. But I do agree on trying more than one if possible. WIth that being said, after I read your review I was really excited about trying another.. I'm really wondering now if I tried a differnt blend. I dont take notes anymore (something I used to do) so I may have mistakenly presented my opinion. I'll try not to do that again especially if I only have one sampling under my belt. Thanks again for the review without which I wouldnt have focused on the cigar and now keeping an eye open for more.

    Hey Rip, SCdlH has been on my radar for quite some time, but sadly I've yet to try one. I've been wanting to order some... so my question is this for ya... what regular production vitola do you think is the best out of thia line? I know a lot of folks like the belicoso (La Punta I think). Is that a solid choice in your opinion? …

    Great review, btw!

    Hi Todd, SCDLH is a great cigar. Some people are missing the unique taste and flavors because of the fame of Cohiba and some other popular brands. I know many smokers like La Punta. In my opinion, if you want Cuban belicoso size then go for Montecristo No.2, Robina Unicos, Partagas Series P No. 2 or the recent Cohiba Pyramides Extra.

    In my opinion, the top SCDLH regular line cigar is – El Principe not the La Punta. If you can find anything thing from 2004 or 2008 release then you are the winner. SCDLH is a slow item so there is a chance to find them. Good luck!

    Thanks for the advice Rip. I will give the el Principe a try. I already have the other belicosos you suggested (except the new Cohiba) and enjoy them all very much. The San Cristobal is what I'm really interested in currently. Thanks again!
  • I had no idea this blend existed. Though the only San Cristobal I like is the original.

    Great write-up as usual, Rip. The SCDLH is at the top of my radar as well. I'm looking forward to having some El Principe in the cooler some day, I've read nothing but positive things about them.

    I grabbed a box of the Principes last year. Not ready yet but I still enjoy opening the box and smelling it every now and then. And the SCdlH's are really dark usually. Can't wait until they're ready in a few years.

    Those are dang good! Got a box resting as well, can't wait.
  • Haven't been on all that much but I'm happy your keeping up the reviews! Very stunning and a true pleasure to keep reading on your experiences. Thanks for keeping all of our butts on the edge of our seats!

    I think I will have to start breaking some laws. I drool every time I read one of your reviews. Don't stop.
