Question For Cuban Smokers

I have been eyeing the H Upmann Coronas Major Tubes and the Hoyo Coronations tubes. They seem unusually less expensive. Are they machine made or something????

Try this thread my friend, I find them to be quite infomative, but you know what they say one mans great cigar is another mans dog rocket.

I noticed that too. But those aren't the only tubos that seem oddly inexpensive. Maybe tubos don't sell that well for him and he needs room. I wish I had some Cuban money .

Sorry but cigar reviews is a joke. They have mostly newbies who have absolutely no experience with Cuban cigars doing the reviewing.

The hand rolled Corona Major is a fantastic cigar when properly aged. If you smoke it too young you are wasting the cigar.

The best place to get reviews are on cigar sites like this. Start a thread asking about such and such a cigar and you will get the opinions of people you know and trust.

Taking the advice of total strangers whose experience is not described in any type of taster profile is problematic at best.

I had the pleasure of smoking one that had 30 years on it.
This was a few months back & it was amazing!
The strength of the cigar was surprising and of corse it was smooth!
It was a tubed CM.

For long term aging tubed cigars are where it is at!

The current batch of 02's with the ECA factory code are the bomb.I have a feeling that they may be all gone because my last box I got were 04's.

I forgot to mention about the Hoyo's. A good buddy of mine whose tastes I respect told me they are very good especially for the money.

Just a heads up for those of you who dont know. I got the answer to this question. While prior to 2004 they did come both hand made and machine made, all boxes dated 20014 and after are all hand made. They are no longer making the machine made version.
