There are quite a few Regional releases available. Been thinking about trying the JUAN LOPEZ SELECCION SUPREMA UK......

What do you like?

Yes.

Then... PL Mag, JL Obus and Boli Libs (in that order). I know some will disagree on the JL Obus but I think it has such a unique profile it deserves to be on the list.

Maybe you're referring to the "Opinions on 2009 & 2010 ELs" thread.

I'm only asking about Regional Editions, not necessarily all EL. If you really want it narrowed how about 2009 & 2010. There may not be much 2009 still available- or even 2010 - I don't know.

Most members here have tried a lot of smokes. Even if your taste is very different than others it still worth hearing what you enjoy. I've had mostly good experiences with recommendations even if I didn't like something as much as someone else did.

I tried to get those Diademas but couldn't get them anywhere.

I'd have to say my favorite were the Phoenicio's or the JL #4

ED's are the shit but not worth $40ea (or more), RA Belis are awesome now and will be a classic in the future. LGC Gloriosos are showing great promise, Boli Esp #2's are great and show much promise, Boli liberators (big one) are great and show promise, RA portugal are great and show promise, Asia stuff lacks...all of it, Robania Adriatic was blah as well.

You really need to try the JL Number 4 from Asia Pacific (it is from asia pacific right?)

Which one is the ED?

I smoked one the other day and found it horrible. It was bitter with a terrible burn. Quite a let down after the SLR Pacificos which in my opinion are incredible.

ED = Edmundo Dantes. I agree with the consensus that this and the PL Mag are the2 best regionals.

I think the ED he is referring to the Edmundo Dantes el Conde 109, it was the RE for Mexico in 07 and I believe a second release the following year.

Of the one's I've tried (not all of these and none form 2010), the highlights suit my taste.

THe RA CF's have been my absolute favorite for taste, style and size...FANTASTIC!

(The 2005 RAB would be second)

Wolter's Gold Medal is a fine smoke...but not listed as a RE ( lol, bobby listed it as well!)

:D

Now, the Wolters GM was technically a pre-cursor to the REs right?
I took it as a limited version of the LCDH releases.

You'll get differing answers.

I am of the belief that Wolter's asked to have a cigar 'remade'...and HSA agreed.

Word. Rob that is interesting, I haven't tried either of those RA's. I thought about the wolters but I tend to put those in a different class than the standard RE

I smoked a few of the Juan Lopez 4's in Hong Kong and I can tell you they were all great, from two different stores no less and no bitterness at all.

I hope they're not having consistency problems.
