Review #31: i am writing this review from the Melia Cohiba in Havana on their courtesy internet service. I have just opened a cabinet box bought at the Corona factory, dated Feb 04. I like this cigar it's creamy, mild and a rich aroma, while the Robusta is not my preferred size it makes for a good quick smoke. I confess the HDM is along with H. Upmann my favorite brands and this cigar lives up to my expectations. Suprisingly there are no bands on this size, whereas the E #1 does have bands. If you like HDM, you should like this one. I just finished a Cohiba Siglo 1V and I must say I don't care so much for them. However, I note Cubans do by and large prefer the Cohiba's. CÚst la vie! - Submitted by unknown on October 27, 2004

Review #30: Although I smoke cigars for some years now, I never had a HdM until about a month ago. My first HdM was a Petit Robusto and let's just say that that was not my cup of tea. Because two 'negative' experiences without a positive one to compensate it is too much, smoking the Epicure No.2 was crucial for my opinion of the brand! Because of my previous experience I approached this one with some suspicion. I had to admit that it was well constructed, but the Petit is also an object of beauty! I noticed that it was very spongy. The scent was sweet, like chocolate. A flame of the torch and I was on my way. The draw was very loose, a bit to loose for me. The taste however was surpisingly mild, nothing like that Petit 'Powerhouse' Robusto! This was a medium-bodied cigar, with thick, creamy smoke and a complex taste! Although it was difficult to clearly identify different tastes, vanilla predominates the palette in the beginning. After about 1/3th it becomes a bit more earthy. When it was past midway, some burning problems arose. A couple of times relighting however had no clear effect on the taste. It took me close to 1,5 hours to finish it. This was one damn fine cigar! - Submitted by Bolivar on October 21, 2004

Review #29: Just bought a box of these and I am glad to say that is a great cigar - the smell in my humidor is of dark chocolate and coffee.. on being lit the first thing that strikes you is that it is not particularly full-bodied... in fact its quite a mild cigar but has heaps of smoke, very very smooth and some considerable complexity. No burn problems and beautifully made. I haven;t smoked them long enough to comment on their past quality, but for me these are perfect - their only flaw maybe that they are a bit too mild for some. - Submitted by KingDong on September 21, 2004

Review #28: I've noticed from the last box, that these cigars are going down in quality and taste. I sure hope our postings are read by people who care and can do something about the deline in quality for all Cuban cigars... - Submitted by chilli on August 27, 2004

Review #27: This cigar looked wonderful out of the box. It was a tight, veinlessly crafted cigar. The one I smoked was a recent production because it had a band on it. I was very anxious to try this classic cigar. The light was quick and smooth. The flavor was spicy but not too full. Something, however, went wrong half way through this cigar. I noticed that the wrapper stopped burning and the draw became incredibly tight. I was shocked. - Submitted by college smoker on August 24, 2004
