    I like that origianl MoW also! IMO, it keeps getting better from there. Next try the Ruination! Excellent smoke!! Then go all in one day with the Armada. MoW makes some good cigars!!

    i actually think that the best MoW besides the Armada is the original blend.


    Puro authentico as a close third

    I love the original MoW. I have a few from when they were first released and have to say they taste better and better with age.

    I agree, had my first original MOW a couple of days ago. I really enjoyed it, had a rich flavor and I personally liked it better than the ruination. I also tried the MOW special edition this fall and I really, really liked that one! My favorite is still the Armada though.

    I've never had the original.. I did not enjoy the MoW SE at all. Ruination was OK for me which was awhile ago. I do like the Armada though

    Just fired up an original for the first time in a while and it was great. Plenty of rich flavor and really smoked without an issue. I have had these in the humi for about a year so they were perfect. For sure a quality smoke.

    yeah, I picked up a smokin deal on the tin sampler over christmas and I'm planning on revisiting the Ruination soon as so many seem to like it, for me it was flavorful, but something about the flavor wasn't quite right.

    Same the flavor for me was different from most of the cigars I have smoked. I have em in my humi and will probably fire one up when it gets warmer.

    the whole line is pretty good. for me, the list goes :

    MOW Puro Authentico
    Ruination
    MOW Special Edition and Armada tied
    MOW Virtue.
    I have yet to try the MOW Maduro in the war chest and the new MOW PA Maduro

    Only one I've tried is the MOW original. I jumped on a box of the corona on a whim before trying any. Now the box is over 2 yrs old I think, i smoked the first with 8 months, the second with a year and a half and they are fan-freakin-tastic. I think it may be the box that lasts until my sons 16th birthday cigar.

    Make sure you've got at least a couple hours when you get ready for that Armada, and go easy on any alcohol you might be accompanying it with, it's got a pretty good kick on its own!

    I've got a MOW Virtue resting in the humi. Should be ready in about 6-7 months.

    It'll be ready sooner than that if you want it to, they do well with 6-7 months but the Virtue's don't NEED that much time.

    I've got this sinking suspicion that curiosity and desire shall indeed get the best of me.

    agreed. id smoke this one with water only. the flavors are good and there are some delicate flavors that can get lost with an alcoholic beverage.
