  1. Also if you're used to smoking NCs its good to know that Full Bodied in CCs is not the same as Full Bodied in NCs. Cubans are usually not as strong
  2. I have to say that the first time I had a Bolivar Petit corona was the first time I tasted peanuts in a cigar
  3. Happy to report fellas that they're ready and they're fantastic. Lots of cream and cocoa. Sitting enjoying the end of this one.
  4. Hey guys have a box of 10 from May '15 and I'm getting the itch to light one. I was curious what kind of aging time have you guys seen that provides some of the great Monte flavors? Thanks!
  5. I don't see a lot about this marca and I've never tried them so I'm curious, for those that have, what are the major flavor profiles that you see across the line? What vitola do you recommend? What would you compare it to?
  6. This is Barkley, literally my first born. I have to say, dogs are incredible and such a gift to have in our lives
  7. Check out what arrived on this freezing ny morning. Can't wait to try these. Thanks for everyone's recommendations
  8. Was lucky enough to have a care package arrive today from the wonderfully generous@Realmikemeadows These look and smell amazing. Can't wait to tear into them. Thanks again Mike!
  9. Thanks to you all, I've just ordered the following: Illusione Epernay Le Matin Crowned Heads Las Calaveras Crowned Heads La Imperiosa Warped Futuro Seleccion Suprema Will report back on my findings
  10. A lot of people have brought up blasts of pepper from NCs, something that I've noticed over the years as well and something that really drew me to CCs - often a much more balanced flavor profile. I almost pulled the trigger on some crowned heads and warped but when reading a lot of the reviews on halfwheel and blindmanspuff I saw a lot of mentions of strong spice and pepper. Any recommendations from those two brands (I've never tried either) that are more balanced and offer less pepper/spice and more cream/coffee/chocolate?
  11. I have to agree with the above. I just had one from a May 15 box and it's just starting to get good. I can tell in another 6-12 months wonderful things are going to happen
  12. I'm making a list of tats to try. I'm thinking a few black series, a few 7th capa, j21, and a few 10th anniv belle encre. The issue now is finding a place online that will sell me singles of these. If you know of any please PM.
  13. I'm thinking of grabbing a fiver of some Tat 7th Capa. Been reading some good reviews of them
  14. Of course rob puts them up on 24:24 the day I work late. Did anyone end up grabbing a box?
  15. So looking at your guys' responses, I keep seeing 3 brands consistently mentioned: Tatuaje, Illusione, & Warped. I'm assuming these have more balanced flavors with less pepper notes than other NCs. Reason for my assumption is that that's what we love about CCs. That being my assumption, can you guys provide some of your favorite lines/vitolas in these brands? Always down to try something new
