Don Pepin Cuban Classic!

I havent smoked a CClassic since before the band changed to what it is now with a secondary gold band on the foot of the cigar. I tried one recently, does anyone else find this cigar is alot milder than it use to be? I remember the 1979s i think they were (mini torp), they were really spicy and hearty. They seem different now. thoughts?

    To my knowledge the blend hasn't changed. That doesn't mean it's gonna be 100% the same experience, but the formula is the same...

    That said, depending on how long it's been (you said it was a while) it is probably more likely your palate has changed, and you perceive it more differently than it really is.

    Hard to do a real comparison due to the age that the originals have on them now, but when I smoke one of my last few remaining old style band Blacks (the old, old band... not the new band w/no footband) they are actually more mellow due to the aging than the new, fresh ones are.

    I love em all though. lol

    Love the "old" ones without the footband, and cant wait to try the ones with the new yellow footband. Really need to pick some of those up, but I admit to being more than a little scared...
