Wow! These sticks are as Full Bodied as it gets in my opinion. I opted for the "H" series. My understanding is that the "F" series are fuller. I can't really imagine that. In any case as others have speculated I too agree that these are Cain 2nds. So far I've had 3 stocks out of the mazo of 15. 2 of the 3 have required significant touch up. This is only slightly annoying. You get over it after realizing the value and the flavor. Personally I'm a fan of pepper with a bit of sweetness and this stick definitely delivers that. The flavor profile does change a bit over the course of the burn. It's creamy at times with some hints of coffee. It's probably also worth noting that it burned a little warm at times...again not a big deal. One thing that I was not expecting was how smooth of a smoke this is. I didn't find it to be harsh until it go within 2 in of the nub...not bad if you ask me. Overall this is one of the better sticks in my humi. I'm sure they'll get even better with age.

Of all the cigars I have ever purchased from CI or anywhere for that matter, these are my favorites. Thing is, I haven't bought any of the Ligero 2nds that I feel any different about. These cigars are so good, that the next time they are being offered, I am going to buy extra humidors in order to buy even more. The last batch lasted me about a year but, alas, I just had to buy a bunch of others including mostly firsts. Every one I smoke though just makes me think of how much better these are ;-)
