    Tried the Flor de las Antillas Toro last night while watching GSP/Diaz..................I just lost all respect for Cigar Afficionado.  Scoring a 96, unreal . This cigar is not even in the same league as a $4.00 Reynaldo custom roll from Cuba, IMO. Their interpretation of cocoa/chocolate at the beginning (1st quarter) is just bitterness that I find is typical for a lot of non-cuban cigars. 1/2 way through it smoothens out, but I find it shoots out a lot more smoke than usual. Not sure what ageing would do to these guys, but hopefully they will improve. Will try the Robusto another night.  Had my last Punch RS 12 last night, so sad this was discontinued.

    Greeno55 - if you find Cubans expensive when you go down to Cuba, buy the singles or bundles of custom rolls for about a third of the price in Havana from La China at the Partagas Factory, Jorge at the Club Havana Yacht Club (makes Monsdales), Reynaldo at the Conde de Villanueva, Crisantos at Hotel Comodoro or Hamlet at the RYJ factory - these are the best rollers in Havana. If in Varadero, go see Alfonso at the LCDH 1st/63rd store.

    San Lotano with a Connecticut wrapper. Also, Alec Bradley makes a very good cigar.
