    Inspector: If you’re looking for a relatively cheap but fantastic small format CC, check out the SCDLH El Principes or the Bolivar PCs, neither of which you have reviewed. They are not as cheap as the Fonsecas — more in the $120/box range. But there’s a lot of value there for the price of both cigars. The SCDLH El Principes are definitely an under the radar awesome smoke.

    @Steve
    Thanks for the suggestions! SCDLH El Principe has been recently reviewed by Jesse:

    I’ll buy some Bolivar PCs for review, sounds like a good smoke given the weather…

    The Fonseca Delicias is THE most uninteresting, flavorless Habano I’ve tried. Hate to run the little guy down, yet I am glad to read these reviews and see I’m not alone in my view. Sorry, Delicias…I can see why I got a special from one of the other cigar shops that gave 2 free packs for every single pack purchased!

    @Inspector: Jesse’s El Principe review is spot on.

    Definitely check out the BPCs. They are right up there with the Siglo I/IIs and Reyes as one of the best PCs/Minutos that Cuba has to offer. Yep, good time a year to sample through the small format cigars.

    Hello, i was just about to light up one of these for the first time, and went here just to check up what to expect (also to compare what i feel about this cigar).

    Straight up i noticed that the one i got at a local cigar shop is quite different. The wrapper is almost going on Maduro dark.

    Is it possible they changed sth recently?

    I can email the pre-light photo.

    Tim, from what I noticed there is no real consistency in terms of wrapper color when it comes to Cuban cigars. I’ve had Montes No. 2 from the same box with different shades of brown. I think you’re safe to smoke the delicias you have.
