    Great review, as usual. I’m just curious how the HDM Epicure #2 compares to the HDM Epicure Deluxe. I’ve had the 2014 and 2015 Epicure Deluxe, but have not tried the Epicure #2. They sound really, really similar; like almost the same cigar with a different band. Any thoughts?

    @David…. I haven’t tried the Deluxe as of yet, but have heard positive comments about it. My thoughts are that if you are in it for the taste profile, then you would enjoy the Epicure #2. It is a $12 cigar either way you go, and no matter how much they may have screwed up with construction issues, the taste keeps me coming back for more. In retrospect, it seems to me you are getting a strong robusto like the MC #2 or Paratagas, but you aren’t paying for the “name”, the hype and the mystique. Quite frankly, the consuming public can keep overlooking them, as that leaves just that many more around for me to enjoy—-evil grin—-.

    If you are in the US, try finding a Montecristo #2 New York Connoiseur Edition. It’s a Dominican release, but the flavor profiles are quite similar, as is the feel construction. Enjoy!!
