jeep edson:whats el/re. thanks for all the help. i am very very very very new to the isoms.
rzaman:Be careful with Regional releases. Most of them are regular cigars with an extra band. I only enjoyed the Robina Espana Edition and Montecristo Edmundo Dante Conde Mexican release.
jeep edson:why would you need to be careful with the regional. because it is usually a diff blend. or because they charge more. you guys are a wealth of knowledge and i am a total sponge. my wife is always wondering why i am on this site and other sites reading about cigars and reviews. i have been a cigar smoker since college but am new to the learning about cigars and all that goes with it. i used to just smoke them. now i wanna know what i am smoking and why this one tastes better to me than that one. etc etc.
catfishbluezz:Not a problem at all, I had to ask the same questions. I took the exact opposite approach with ISOM as I did nc cigars as I learned my lesson. Buy slow, figure out what you like, then start buying boxes. Rip would be better suited to answer the Maduro question as I cannot comment on te history of the wrapper in Cuba. My guess is it was a response to the American palette searching for stronger full bodied cigars.
jeep edson:thanks rip. knew you would have the answer. when you say maduro maduro you mean binder and wrapper correct. so triple would be filler also? i saw a piece on youtube where cao has a mx3 sitting in their aging vault. as a fan of the mx2 i would love to try that thing.
jeep edson:they have a triple maduro as a shop bland. how is it. any good. you are more a fan of the conny though arent you.
