    I'm a fan... I just had one on Friday with a buddy of mine (it's probably the sixth one I've had and I've been happy with every one... gets more flavor with a little age on it... this one had about 6 months on it)... it's a great everyday smoke... nice flavors, remindes me a bit of the San Miguel... similar notes... anyway, it's a nice stick to have on hand... It's one of my top favs do the house blend along with the Brizilian and the Red Label... I'm in for 2...

    Had one in the humi for a month or so, tried it today to see if I needed a five'r from kelly. Wasnt what I was hoping for. Pretty spoungy, lack of anything but spice. Maybe im just not a sungrown kinda guy.

    I don't even think it was that long ago. Ccom had a bunch of stuff come out back to back, I think it was the shorty, the 5 vegas gold maduro, the unlimited, and the sungrown was last.
    That's what I remember from this year.

    yep, i ordered them on 8/16... same day that I ordered the Gold maduro... so 3 months... regardless, I like the smoke and the rest, though brief as it may have been, seemed to have an impact... I like em and I picked up 2 of the Sunday deal...

    You know what I have to try the few I got now.
    I've only had 2 but they were fresh at the time.

    pretty good, i'll definitly be buying more of these
  • I've had one each of the Corona and Torpedo and I think I like the Corona better. For the price the Sun Grown is a pretty good stick, but I don't think I'd pay more than $5 for it. It's lacking complexity for me, although the ones I smoked were only a week or two OTT if that makes a difference.

    Had my first one tonight, a torpedo. Not bad but not my favorite ccom label. The first third reminded me of when I first got into cigars years ago when everything just tasted like, well, a cigar. It was weird, I couldn't taste anything but cigar. In the second third, it opened up a little with tastes of cedar. It the final third, the smoke was thick and was really nice.

    I should note that the burn and draw were great!!

    Hmm... I think it has probably been long enough that it is time to revisit these. They had a sort of tangy acidic note to them that I didn't care for much last time I tried one. Unfortunately I only have churchills, and it is wayyyyy too Fkin cold out to smoke a 2+ hour cigar. Alas, I guess I won't try another until spring time.

    I'll have to try mine soon... Sounds like pretty hit or miss reaction to this one. I got one in a package a while back from Fourto and after 3-4 more weeks I'll have to light it up and add my opinion here.

    Last one I had was on Halloween. Also a churchill. I enjoyed it. Very smooth as I recall. I've got a few more that have been sitting since they first came out. Good spring time smoke i think.

    Bump! GIven the weekend blitz...how have these aged out? Any new opinions on them now?
  • stephen_hannibalstephen_hannibal Posts: 4,317
    I thought it was a Sumatra... When did it switch to habano?

    If they are the same as when I picked up a box a year or so ago I would say that's a good deal. Good solid yard or golf gar for $2. I'm tempeted to pick this up, but saving my cookies for March Madness.
