    I really do like some smokes in the lancero size. The El Truinfador lancero is an AWESOME smoke if you can actually find it. They are very hard to come by!

    i feel that the smaller ring is very under rated. the wrapper leaf is the best leaf used in the cigar. you want to taste it as much as you can. since a smaller ring has more wrapper to filler the wrapper has a chance to shine.

    I like smaller rings myself, I think often times you get a crisper, more interesting smoking experience. The Padron panatela, which imo is more of a lancero, is very tasty. El Triunfador, like Puro mentioned, is also quite excellent. One of my personal favorite cigars is a lonsdale, the La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet #1.

    Some smaller rings are definitely worth looking into, but keep in mind you have to smoke them differently in that you definitely do not want to rush a smaller ring.

    The owner is like the Anti-BOTL.

    He went around buying forums and kicking members off that didn't follow HIS new rules. Nothing bad can be said about the transition, nothing bad can be said about the whole site going to advertisments, nothing bad could be said about the advertisors. The entire site was purchased and hundreds of members were sent off. The majority of the posts/reviews were purchased and those members who built the 4 forums were sent away creating new forums to be on.

    Specifially:
    Slang uses Douchebag, or simply douche, is considered to be a pejorative term in North America, the United Kingdom and some other English speaking countries. In some English speaking countries the term is not well known. The slang usage of the term dates back to the 1960s. The term implies a variety of negative qualities, specifically arrogance and engaging in obnoxious and/or irritating actions without malicious intent. It is generally used for males only.
    Maybe I should have gone with my first instinct and just called him a Douche. :D

    I really enjoy the Ccom Brazilian Label in the Petit Corona size (6.5x42, I believe). I have had every size and that one is by far the best. The brazilian is my favorite of their house blends. And at the price, they are just a GREAT smoke.
