To B or not to B....(bundle that is)
I am not a cigar snob by any means. I don't care what the band says as long as it's a good smoke. NC or C, doesn't matter to me.
I recently asked and recieved some recommendations for bundled cigars, and frankly, I'm underwhelmed.
I rarely smoke more than one a day, and usually that's not every day.
So I bought some FdO bundled cigars, and while they were ok to me, I kept thinking...I wish I were smoking a CAO maduro. (my current favorite)
So in my case, a bundle isn't really a bargain if all the time you're smoking one, you wish you'd lit up another one.
The only "problem" is, CAOs cost more than bundles.
Still, when it's all said and done, I'd rather smoke a cigar that costs more, that I really enjoy, than a cheaper one that I don't like. However, the reverse would apply also. If I found a bundle I liked better than a name brand, I'd smoke them every day. So far, I've not found that bundled cigar that I really like.
It's not an optical illusion, it just looks like one.
