Ramon Bueso Olancho Vintage Toro

Hi, I'm a newbie at serious cigar smoking and after 3 months of trying many Sampler Packages of $8-$15 p/stick smokes I have determined that I prefer a medium to full bodied cigar better than say the Ashton Classic I was started on. Cohiba, Macanudo and Monte Cristo have all been excellent and I'm starting to taste the subtle changes that each goes through. I can't identify the taste yet but I can notice it as a pleasurable experience. I have also tried some less expensive samplers bc I thought I'd enjoy them on the golf course or while fishing. Well, I don't. Most times they don't burn evenly, need to be relit several times, and are harsh, especially when first lit. U get what u pay for and I can afford a better stick even when fishing. In a Sampler Pack I received last week I picked the Ramon Bueso Olancho Vintage Toro to light up and found it to be the best tasting, smelling, burning cigar to date and that I totally enjoyed it! I bought a case from CI and had 2 this weekend that were just as good. So now I have a case of R&J 1875 that are good, but I enjoy this slightly less expensive cigar better. I can only think it's because its rated as a much fuller taste to the others. I smoked Marlboros for 35 years and maybe had 5 cigars in that time. Hated them all. Since I quit the nails 9 months ago I now have a pallet again so I get the cigar thing...and really enjoy it!

    Welcome Mike. I had an Olacho last night as a follow-up to a more expensive, higher regarded cigar. I enjoyed the RB Olancho more. I haven't had all the Ramon Bueso cigars yet but those that I've had,..... well, let me say it this way,.... I make room for them in my coolers.

    OR Genesis were awesome.
    Odyssey doesn't do it for me.
    Have a box of Habanos resting for a while, need to try them soon.........getting mixed reviews on those.
    Dont know what to think about the Olancho.......guess I'll have to get some soon.
    biggest mistake I made was smoking all my OR Genesis Toros...........they were phenomenal.........subsequent releases didn't really come close quite frankly.

    I heard that these like some age on them.  Since I bit on these, I'm going to put them down for a long nap.
    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    Lit up the Olancho tonight, still in the first third but I'm not sure long aging is the way to go. It's a good cigar with nice flavors but not sharp or too peppery, aging too long could make this cigar made with vintage tobacco a less interesting cigar. image
