MOW Virtue vs La Herencia Cubana

ZAPZAP Posts: 171 ✭✭
Are these two similar in strength?  I had them back-to-back yesterday and really preferred the La Herencia Cubana although the Virtue was certainly nice enough....just thought the La Herencia Cubana packed more flavor in a medium bodied smoke.

I'd love to hear what others think of these two smokes..

    In my opinion, comparing La Herencia Cubana and MoW Virtue is like comparing wine and liquor. Both have alcohol, but they're completely different beasts. La Herencia Cubana is a sumatra wrapper and tends to be medium strength and body with cedar, oak, spice, and pepper. Man O' War Virtue has a connie wrapper and is a mild to medium with cream, nuts, cedar, and white pepper.

    Personally, I love the Man O' War Virtue. As for the La Herencia Cubana original? I found it kind of boring. The La Herencia Cubana Oscuro Fuerte, though, that's a full strength with LOTS of flavor.

    I agree almost completely, with the exception being that I really like the LHC original a lot.

    Heck I like all of them and will smoke any and all on contact. There is a big difference between the Conn. wrapper and the Sumatra wrapper.
  • I keep both in my humi. I prefer a full flavor cigar. but my wife loves the LHC.and the LHC goes great with Rum and coke. both are a AJ blend. as for flavor i have always found them to be very different. Vitue is my go to stick for newbies.
