  1. RASSC from June 2016, just cracked the box and it has come further than I expected. Topping it off with an Opus X A from 2013 or 14. Good Saturday. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  2. Wrote earlier this week (in this thread) that I'd stay away from NCs for a while but here I am. Was given a very crusty-looking Roma Craft Aquitaine and figured I'd put a flame to it for lunch. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  3. RyJ wide churchill, PSP from unknown year (probably 2014?). Best RyJ I've had in a very long while. Sweet cedar, some sort of berry (?), nice spice on the end a while in. Really enjoying this! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  4. What do you think? I love those things (even with my bias of being a RA ***** aside). Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  5. PLPC from 07, generously brought to me by my smoking buddy. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  6. Been hearing a lot of good things about the Illusione Garagiste. Had a very nice smell of the foot, figs galore, but I wouldn't run to the store for it after smoking it. Casa Fernandez hit it out of the park with the Haut 10 but this one I'm not so sure. Will have to keep it CC for a while. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  7. JL Exclusico AP, 2010. Not bad. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  8. Had my last Cohiba Maduro last night. Have not cared for any that I've smoked and this didn't improve my judgement. Very muted (and also see the tunnel) and not a great burn. Today I'm enjoying a 10+ year old Opus with some of the best NC smell I've ever experienced on the foot. Pure raisin and cinnamon. Raisin has dominated the first third with earth in the background, still a fair bit of spice, very well balanced at this age. Smoke well this weekend, fellow Friends!

  9. My 100th post of FoH (!). The last few days have included a wedding of a fellow cigar smoker (RA Club Allones), a depressing visit to the mechanic (Punch Punch Vintage), and now an evening with a fantastic Busch Light. Smoking the Case Study No. 10, which is a Davidoff Yamasa figurado that never made it to full production. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  10. First edition Mag 50 followed by a 2010 Opus during wine tasting. The Mag was fantastic on its own but did not pair well with the Tempranillo. The Opus was a much better fit, I had a nice ligero core that was probably needed. Overall, I am enjoying a very nice evening! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  11. Been waiting for quite a while to try this 2009 Spanish RE. Happy Monday! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  12. Exquisitos from early 2011. Starting to enjoy Cohiba more and more as I've tried more stuff with age and strayed from the Siglos. Have a great Sunday friends! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  13. Box split, will have to fight over the 25th one. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  14. Almost forgot to take a photo of this, got lost in the flavors. A 1996 Punch Super Selection No. 1. Started off unassuming and had some issues with draw. After a third and some change, this turned from subtle honey sweetness and cedar to something RASS like. Completely took me by surprise. Potent dark fruit on the front. Some spice on the retro on and off that is very complementary. Truly amazing. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  15. Dannemann Espada Brasil. From early 2000s, gifted from a friend yesterday. Actually not that bad, always cool to try something new. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
