Reason i ask is swmbo is visiting peru, and i imagine them being much cheaper down there.
Also, can any one understand what that says about the different models?
Taste is so subjective, I don't even go by reviews of flavor. What you've pointed out is what is most important to know about a cigar. I've seen grown men squabble over whether a stogie tastes like nutmeg or coffee. I wish I had that much time to think about things that mean nothing.
