Haven't had either.
Several of you are fans (BGZ, et al)
MB3 having a tempting "sale" with freebies.

So......which to buy....Maduro or regular?

The regulars are a bit bland for me now. The regulars were great when they came out but they just seem to be flat now.

I would go with the Maduros.

You read my mind, I was about to ask the same question. Thinking I may just go with a box of each and get two hats Think

Seems to be a common theme.

New cigar gets high ratings. Later versions made with cheaper ingredients but continues to sell based on the old ratings.

this...happens way too often...EP Carillo's Elencos is latest example...

that's why it's remarkable how consistent Fuente's Hemingway, Flor Fina, and Don Carlos lines have been over the years, as are the Padron 1964 and 1926 Anniversary and X000 lines...
