  1. these are eminently worse. Were terrible young and will be terrible old. Reinforcing the notion that only good cigars get better with proper age! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. Does it share any commonalities with it's sibling? The H. Upmann Connoisseur B is a 5 7/8x 54 vitola. The cigar itself is packaged in 25 count slide top boxes. It is the second release in the H.Upmann brand for La Casa Del Habano and Habnao Specialist retailers. In 2013, the H. Upmann Connoisseur A was released to these select retailers measuring 5 1/2 x 52 which is an excellent cigar. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I've placed an order blind as well due to the consistency of quality with the A's. it's always nice to have prez inspect a box for wrappers, aroma, and construction. So if you're not in a rush they do go around $290 on 24:24 clearance/seconds. Also keep in mind 24:24 wrapper quality doesn't always reflect binder and filler quality. That is something that can only be assessed by actually smoking. For example I've had PSP RASS with gorgeous wrappers and nice aroma at cold that are some of the most disappointing smoking cigars. I've never had a reason to believe that wrapper quality and presentation correlates to the equivalent quality of binder and filler used. That's Cuba [emoji1083]. Consistently inconsistent with connoisseur A's and limitadas being more of an exception to that rule. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. RIP to a legend who left us. Avo would say "every cigar you smoke gives you one more day of life". May we all live to smoke as many cigars as he did. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I stayed at grand bavaro. Smoking in the balcony is not an issue. Prices are outrageous so take plenty of your own. There are two places to visit. Matilde cigar is the better of the two although I'm not sure they offer tours. The fuente chateau is a 6 hour drive and I wouldn't recommend it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Stems are an inherent part of tobacco leaves and a certain percentage of filler and binder stems are intentionally not removed while rolling. I'm also aware that thicker leaves have hence larger stems. But I often find with NC's that there are multiple large stems, which negatively impact taste and to a certain extent burn. Not referring to flexible soft stems/veins. I've removed burned, smelled and tasted these larger stems and yet have found that they positively contribute to my palate. Quite frankly they always smell, taste harsh and unpalatable. Such stems are commonplace in NC's including ultra premium cigars. However I've rarely if ever encountered them in CC's. Not sure if it's due to the lack of ligero in the blends or a different philosophy when it comes to incorporating large stems in the blend. What has your experience been as it relates to large stems and CC's? Sent from iPhone
