    Never tried it. I have thought about purchasing it a few times. I think peppin blends it and I like a fair amount if his blends .

    I have had a Cubao that was about a 5x50 size, but not the number 7. I remember it being a bit spicy like a lot of DPG stuff but nothing else really jumped out at me. It was a good cigar, but I didn't rush out and buy a box.

    Thanks. First time on an auction site I was trying out the bid feature so bid on a box mostly by mistake. I wasn't worried because I figured some one else would bid in the next couple of day. No one did and I one a box dirt cheap. Come on Monday and was just curious of anyone had had them.

    These are made by Ortega now and are great smokes IMO.

    So $40 for a box of 20 sounds like a good deal...

    New or old blend that's a pretty killer deal.

    Not a bad smoke....haven't had one in years but from what I remember it was a good earthy smoke. And yeah $40 for a box is generally a great deal!!
    Money can't buy taste

    Here is what I would suggest... Not a bad deal at all, but without having had one, I wold not recommend it. Reason being, if you do not like it, then you have an entire box to sit on... I made this mistake many times with stuff I kind of liked, then grew out of it. Or I bought 10's or boxes of stuff I wanted to try because it was such a good deal and I heard good things. Sooner or later, I had way to many cigars I did not need. It was ridiculous. Granted, I still have too many cigars, but this is stuff I know I love after years of smoking.

    Maduro or natural? Only had the natural and it's essentially almost an oscuro. They age very well. I haven't had the no. 7, only the torp... I think.

    If you want to trade for a few, let me know, I'd like to try the corona size.

    I already bought them mostly by mistake. Was just trying to get a sense of what to expect. Thanks for your advice!

    Oh so true next you will be looking at cabinet humis if you do not have one now.

    Just finished my first and I think it needs a little time to rest. Nice construction, nice burn, etc. but not particularly interesting the first third--which also burned pretty quickly. The second third had a little more flavor-a bit of spice (but not much) and a distinct woody flavor. Mellowed out again, too quickly in my opinion. in the last third. But on the other hand I smoked it down to the nub.

    The #7 is a Lonsdale with a pigtail -- Ray (Glock) sent me a different size a couple of weeks ago so am looking forward to trying that too.

    Regularly smoke Cubao maduro rothchild. Got 2 boxes of the original blend by E&O -- Espinosa & Ortega. The cigars made now by Eddie Ortega. A good quickie with chocolate spice and smooth draw. Rustic San Andres Mexican maduro wrapper that has a rough fell, like a Padron 5000.

    I had the torpedo maduro once long ago and have been meaning to get a fiver ever since. Eddie makes great cigars.

    Smoked my second one yesterday. Even a couple extra weeks in the humidor did them well. Very nice smoke with a much more developed and distinct flavor than just two weeks ago...of course I might have been a little drunk so who knows. Definitely would order another box of these.
