  1. Aroma at Cold

    The wifey ends up opening most of the boxes I get delivered when I work out of town. I love it when she sends me a text saying “I can smell these through the package wrapper!”
  2. 14/15 RASS

    I've done some vertical tastings on the RASS by year. It seems to me that these hit their stride around 4 or 5 years old. It's a cigar that will slap you around a bit but that fruitcake flavor really stands out at the 4 to 5 year mark. JMO of course
  3. I know, right?!?!?! I love the perlas. How in the hell did I miss RGPC's?!
  4. Dammit @JohnS!!! Hahaha!! My aged list is exactly the same I would add a '13 BPC box to the aged list that fits in the top 3. I would put it at 1.5--LOL! I hardly ever smoke fresh PC's these days apparently. I actually smoke the Secreto fresh. ( I know, I should get my peepee whacked. LOL) I have zero RGPC's. Seems I need to fix that. I wish they came up on 24:24 more often. Outside of the PLPC, aged doesn't have to be super long term. Both my HUPC and Sig II boxes are from '14 and are absolutely smoking the house down.
  5. The Aging List

    Use Rob's Suggestions as a guide to start, and then let your tastebuds adjust accordingly. That's pretty much what I did. I have a 7 year old box of HUPC's that I can't keep my hands off of and I know, KNOW they can age another 5+. What I need is another 7 year old box... AND a 12 YO box. LOL! The same goes for my HUPC '14's. Just friggin tasty. No knees, no elbows, vibrant and tasty so they get smoked! I have buddies that don't even think of touching Cohibas for at least three years. To each his own
  6. I have fun with the experimentation and am willing to try anything with a cigar. I have found some combo's I really like: Coffee--Across the board, this seems to pair well with almost every cuban I have had. I am a cream and sugar guy with super strong coffee. HU, Cohiba, JL, Trini's come to mind straight away. Rum--I have to say, rum and Cohibas are like peas and carrots. Zacapa and a Coro...other-worldly. Scotch--Not my favorite with a cigar. Maybe a lowlands scotch like Auchentoshan would work a bit better. Bourbon--Some of the better Bourbons with a heavy vanilla nose work pretty damn well with a cigar. A Maker's Mark Manhattan and an RyJ...Wowzers! Wines--I can't say I like cigars with reds. I had a few in Italy and they just seemed to clash with the cigar. I have yet to try champagne with a cigar. I need to fix that before Jeremy tells me to shut up. LOL! To each his own--whatever tickles your pickle.
  7. Love, love, love PL's! I had my first Encantos a few weeks ago. Absolute show stopper! PL's have such a unique flavor profile and age a dream. I have a 7 yo box of PLPC's that still pack a punch yet they are soo good I can't stop smoking them. I'd say out of all of the aged boxes I have bought, that PLPC has brought me the most enjoyment. I wish I could get my hands on a few more older PLPC cabs.

  10. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    I know, I know...I should let these sleep for awhile. I just love them with a cup of coffee. I will just have to buy another box to lay down Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  11. Oh sexy SEXY!!! From a fellow FOH member that is just a great guy. Thanks for parting with these babies!!! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  12. Punch Serie D'Oro No.2 EL2013

    I got a nice roasted peanut flavor to go with that cream. Definitely one of the better LE's I have smoked. I am saving for a box...if I can stop buying boxes on 24:24 with the money I have set aside...LOL!

  15. It's a light brown dye stain under two coats of candlelight stain from General Finishes. I wanted just a tinge of red. I may go darker. I am picking up more stains this weekend. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
