Well, i enjoyed my first PL about 3 months ago and it was magnificent. It was a PC and very satisfying. Yet it was quite different than this long skinny fellow.
I remember my first PL (as stated, it was a PC) and the MC had some interesting points to make.
1. PL as a brand must have a certain complexity that is uniquely it's own. I know that have only smoked about a dozen CC's but i noticed a very similar familiarity between the two diff. sizes from this same brand.
2. CC's as a whole have a unique twang to them, it seems as if PL has a VERY bold and distinct flavor all it's own. The kicker is that there was a huge difference in the MC versus the PC that i smoked only a few months ago. The PC that i smoked was very satisfying and complex, but the range in the complexity was harder to pinpoint and note the change. Rather, it changed without notice but still i eventually could note the swing in flavor. The MC on the other hand had changed flavor on me 3 times and was very easy to point out when the changes had occured. The cigar itself started out light, airy, and creamy.... then poof, it developed a much more hearty chocolate note to it. And by the time i was ending it up i noticed a very deep leathery earthy taste which is still extremely strong on my tastebuds and its been 20 minutes since i let it die.
I never knew that the difference in shapes could have such an effect on the cigar's overall uniqueness to where it was a snap-change on your palette. (i know shape affects taste but this was drastic.. .and marvelous)
I usually steer away from anything under a 40 RG but this thing had a draw more plentiful than some coronas i've smoked (maybe because i storemy CC's at 58%). The burn and draw never let me down and the flavor was amplified by every minute that passed.
I still cannot get over the way that the cigar changed flavors in such a robust manor. It truly was a journey of an experience.
As a guy that hates small RG, i would tell anyone to try it at least once. You might just be pleasantly surprised.
Thanks for reading,

I'd have to say that every cigar I've smoked from this brand has been completely enjoyable.

I really love the PLPC's. I'm looking forward to giving these a try also.

Why so surprised? It's not like you could devise and implement a testing to support whether they do or they don't. Could you?

Cigars like the Cohiba Exquisito, Maduro 5 Secreto, illusione mk, Trinidad fundadore Opus #5 etc. Good times.
