  1. Again... In the NC world. Me personally, I care what is in and on my cigar. Just me
  2. Lol My first cigar was a CE in 92 been smoking Cubans and chasing that flavor profile ever since. I remember walking into a cigar shop and the room note was so much different than what i was used to. I knew right away that NC's werent for me. Different smell/Taste.
  3. I agree. Especially on blend integrity. The great thing about your list is that everything mentioned is natural. I can guarantee you one thing i wont be washing my hands/lips off after smoking a Cuban though
  4. You mean the NC world. I know where my tobacco comes from. Cuba
  5. I should have been a bit more thorough in my post. I dont mean all NC companies. The reason i started this thread is because of the accusations of Padron using a mexican wrapper. Obviously its just an accusation. If true it's a bit shocking to me as Padron is well respected. How credible is the website? I couldnt answer that. Cigar Aficionado and the rest of the well respected sites list Padron as a puro
  6. Lately there have been threads posted about NC's. One well known cigar manufacture says one thing, another supposed expert says something different. A quote here, a quote there. People claim that they their fingers and lips get stained while smoking certain kinds of them. What wrapper/binder/filler are you getting? So whats really in them and can the NC companies be trusted? Your thoughts.
  7. No. I get it. This is insane and weird But why lie and put your reputation on the line?
  8. Yes i saw that. This is just weird. I mean i have had a few padrons in my day and they are not a bad smoke. So the question is who do i believe? Cigar Aficionado lists them as puros. So do lots of others that are reputable. It seems as the "not as well known" websites say they do use the mexican wrapper. Again... Looks like the NC world if full of deceit

  10. ??? Youre right. That is true, more of a blanket statement about the NC manufactures .Here is the major difference. @Cigar Surgeon makes a direct accusation about Padron using mexican wrapper and claiming its not a puro. Big difference
  11. One thing we are learning here is that is seems that the NC world has lots of secrets Back it up then Its not me that made the claim. So goalposts dont apply, at least not to me. You mean like Jorge Padron making claims of mineral oil on wrappers? You are making the claim the CA is wrong about Padron being a puro. Something is way off here.
  12. "Sure, Gary wrote in his blog article that he's citing Jorge, so we're taking that at face value as I said" Im sure Jorge Padron has had his fair share of these conversations for multiple decades. Here is another quote from you above. So what is the difference about your claims of "mexican wrappers on Padron cigars" and Jorge Padrons claims about mineral oil on cigars? They should both be taken at face value then right? Is Jorge lying? Are you being lied to? Thats why truth is important here. All im saying is when it suits you to make a point you claim this knowledge and experience and when Jorge makes a claim it "should be taken at face value" Convenient 😀
  13. Truth is never measured, its just truth. An old quote from Georges Braque."Truth exists; only lies are invented". As for finding the truth, we would have to have a third party/lab test the the cigar to really know. This "i heard it on the internet so it must be true stuff" amazes me.
