I am contemplating on picking some of these up. I never had any SLR before. What do you guys/gals think? Are they worthy to have in your humi? Any advice would be helpful. Gracias...

Would you consider it a decent smoke or would you prefer something else.

They are a staple in my humidor. They are a bit inconsistent, but the ones that are on are real good. Age does them nicely but they don't really need too much of it. They don't last that long anyway.

I also keep some Serie As around. I like the size better and find them to be a little more consistent, but haven't had one yet that has been as good as the "good" Regios.

Great cigar, particularly for the price. I occasionally have had some tight draw issues (three boxes ago - which should tell you something), but generally it's a great size and good tasting 'gar.

Buy with confidence. I've also had good luck with the Serie As, but I like the Regios a tad more.

Are these on the chopping block at HSA?

My personal favorite robusto (type) cigar is the Juan Lopez #2...but that's just my own opinion. If your not doing a box purchase pic up some different robusto's (type)and have some fun sampling if your looking for a box the Regios are a good choice....

If you had a choice between the regios or the JL #2, which would it be.

For me personally (if I didn't already have 3 boxes) it would be the JL #2

Otter, thanks for the input. I guess I should try a fiver of both first.

They are both excellent. IMHO these are some of the best regular production cigars....not produced in quantities like Cohiba and Montecristo.

I've always like the SLR Regio. I have a few left from a March 11 box that are absolute taste-bud tinglers. Getting another box.

Smoking some Regios from Nov 2005, love them, one of the best cubans I have smoked, smoked about 6 and have another 8 left. Found them very consistant in construction and draw. Superb flavours and will be very sad when they are finished.
