    nice review. its a good reminder as to why we are CCom buyers and not CI buyers. the guys at Ccom really put some heart and soul in to their company and this is proof, as with all the house blends. it's easy for a cigar distributor to get some seconds or some weak ass blend and slap a house label on it, but for a company to get multiple master blenders to make their house blends and develop the product so the experience is a great one is what makes them tops. score one for CCom. looking forward to trying the Sun Grown.

    Not saying I don't agree, but what about the CI Legends series, that's a house line made by different master blenders, and if one wanted to compare apples to apples the CI Legends would come out on top for the fact that each blend is from a different, well respected company and they're all long filler.

    I'm not knocking the ccom house line, but someone had to play devil's advocate. ;)

    Joe, they don't count. I'm playing ignorant.
    in reality though, I don't know what kind of attention the CI guys give to the blending process. with the Ccom stuff, the higher ups are taking an active blending role which is very cool

    Apples to oranges (and also slightly off-topic), but Ccom is the only retailer I've ever heard of that has allowed their customers to participate in creating a blend.

    fair enough, ccom does seem to take a large interest in being involved, so I do give credit where it's due. One thing in particular that I do like about the CI Legends is that each blend is made by a different master blender, so you get a lot of diversity from one blend to the next. I guess I'm on the fence, I love the awesome customer service from ccom, but as house lines go my love is for the Legends, if for now other reason than the Manuel Quesada blend being spectacular is every way.

    I just got one today and seriously thinking of lighting this bad boy up tonight!
  • HaybletHayblet Posts: 2,429 ✭✭✭
    I figured you hadn't had a chance at one yet so when you won the lottery (grrr :P) figured I'd launch one out to you, I've had about 4 or 5 of them already and if I wasn't going to Atlanta on Saturday I'd order another box.
  • Joeyjoe21_8Joeyjoe21_8 Posts: 2,048
    well i am stoked to give it a shot...I have never had a sun grown cigar...not even the rocky sun grown...i lit up hays on time cuz he gave me one, and it was so dam plugged I couldnt get anything out of it at all...it was stupid..
  • HaybletHayblet Posts: 2,429 ✭✭✭
    I smoked a RP Sun Grown the other day and had a C.Com Sun Grown today and still prefer the C.Com blend over Rocky's Rocky's just had better burn time but flavors were very close to one another.

    Brothers, dive in. I first ordered the robusto and really enjoyed them and now just got my order of torps and I am enjoying them also. Great smoke, no burn issues.

    I really think for the price, you can't beat them. Maybe even at a higher price... (Don't listen ccom!)

    Any difference or preference between the two sizes?

  • docbp87docbp87 Posts: 3,521
    Initial thoughts... Lots of sweetness and cedar initially, spice and heat pick up around the half mark, pepper, cedar, and cinnamon like flavors. Had some draw issues. Nothing big. For a $2.00 stick it was fantastic. Would make a great every day kind of smoke.
  • u nailed it on the head

    Cut into my second one this morning. Found something I've never seen before:

    this is what I pulled our, it ran the full length and I could not cut it with my cutter.

    Wow. That's not good. At least it isn't a pubic hair...
  • sightunseensightunseen Posts: 2,130
    Interesting...what is it? I guess it is literally a mixed-filler cigar.
  • HaybletHayblet Posts: 2,429 ✭✭✭
    Can't say I've ever seen anything that resembles a hair come out of a stick before... that's really quite an odd one there Cabbie. I do have to admit this is "my" most popular review thread even if everyone doesn't exactly comment on my review :P
  • cabinetmakercabinetmaker Posts: 2,561
    It smoked just fine, small bit of tunneling last third but otherwise another fine offering.
  • t_evan50t_evan50 Posts: 1,725
    Smoking the corona as I right this. Burn is a tad quick but it is still rather fresh. Great flavor. Right up there with the big label sungrowns
