"Great then, inconsistant now..."
This was a great brand in the 90's. It is full of disappointment today. And what a variety of disappointing characteristics is available! Both the maduros and the naturals fluctuate from lot to lot so much, every new box is a surprise, and about 7 times out of 10 it is an unpleasant surpise. And so many of them are so tightly rolled, or plugged, I've thrown entire boxes out. Aging doesn't help these cigars the way it used to, either. I've been buying them for years with the hope that I would find a box that tasted like the old days. And Miami made or Dominican doesn't make a difference, neither does size. Most of them are bad, some are very bad, some are tolerable, none are great. And they used to be great!!!
