  1. I have had peanuts in the Quai D'Orsay Imperiales. Peanuts with a floral aspect. I have no idea what year it was from, but it tasted very much like peanuts. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk

    Has anyone smoked these? I would be curious of the flavour profile. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  3. On this cold and sordid midnight, without the consolation of sleep, I was checking my drawers for one of my manuscripts, when, with little to no suprise, I stumbled, in the most vulgar position imaginable, upon a lonely and broken cigar. It layed there like a prosaic virgin, with little to no self respect. There it was, with a darker skin than imagined, a Hoyo des Dieux, standing maimed, and most likely flabbergasted by my work. One of those disfigured beauties, I guess. She seemed to have been completely flattened by my notebooks. I was enamoured by her and I was awaiting the challenge of smoking her. As we fell together, she initially seemed a lost hope, but as in most cases of broken lust, it turned out to be one of those very pleasant experience. She was very sweet, yet quite uneven and unvirtuous. When it was consummated I longed for more. What cruel fate. On to the serious review: I found this cigar in a ziplock bag with a boveda pack , under all of my work, flattened completely. Yet i was longing for a smoke. So I lit up. Appearance: a few small veins on it, but it was much darker than all the others I've had before. The wrapper was quite smooth, but nothing special, not oily. There were a few cracks on it but it was fine. Aroma: a bit of tea, and tobacco, not much. Cold draw: sweet woodiness Opening: quite muted, primarily woody with notes of oak and cedar, a little bit of biterness. First third: Medium body, same woodiness, with a lot of cream and toastiness, a bit of tobacco and dry hay. Nothing impressive. White pepper on the retrohale. Second third: this is where it gets interesting, I started to get some spice, more specifically cumin and cinnamon. After two more draws it started to become very very sweet. On the retrohale, no more white pepper, but rather black pepper. The finish is a little tannic though. After a few more puffs, though still sweet, it became salty as well. Final third: Medium- Full(quite unexpected, considering others) same saltiness, lost most of the sweetness. More woodiness, notes of tea and maybe some cloves. Same cumin. It became a bit harsher. I admit, this might have because of the fact that I let it go out. Suddenly, I got some notes of sea buckthorn and jasmine. On the retrohale, no more pepper, just sweet tea. There is also another flavour in the last third which I really can't put my finger on, maybe lavender? Or maybe it is metallic. Generally it was more pleasant when I would take short puffs then when I would take deep ones.(it would be more tannic) Over all a very pleasant experience, and very sophisticated. I would give it 93-94 points. Second third was around 95-96, but then it went downhill. Disclaimer: This is my first review. Smoke time: 1h 24 minutes.
  4. Update: Quite a short break. Well, I went to the doctor. Apparently I have been having a too much thyroid hormone supplement, and because of this I kept having the chills, the cold sweats, the nausea, the high blood pressure. Now I am starting to feel fine. I asked her about cigars and she told me it has nothing to do with it, and I can go back. The coincidence was the following, I generally smoke cigars in the evening and apparently the symptoms of an overdose occur in the late evening. This explains why I was feeling bad in the evening, even after I stopped smoking. Today I smoked a cigar again, it was wonderful and I feel fine. Now I am looking to buy around 50-100 cigars for the summer. Looking for sweetness and even pleasant fruity sourness, which lately has been my favourite (like in the RA Club Allones EL2015). Looking forward to all your suggestions. I am looking to let them age/ rest for 7-8 months. Keep in mind, aside from LEs and new releases I generally don't have access to cigars which are from 2016-2017, but rather 2014-15 or earlier. Maybe I am too demanding, if so, I apologize. It is good to be back!

  6. Nicotine sickness

    Well I decided to sadly quit, for now. I might try again in a few years, 2-3. And if not, well, my luck... Luckily I found a lady friend I could sell my cigars to, so not much loss. Plus I know they are going in good hands. I thank you for all of your help and support. I enjoyed these months a lot. All of your suggestions were welcomed. But for now, my road seems to have hit a dead end. I hopefully will be back... Enjoy your cigars, as much as I will miss them.
  7. Nicotine sickness

    Update: This week I am free from Uni, and today I smoked 2 cigars. First I smoked a RASS(delicious but a bit disappointing, since it lacked the flavour I was craving, which it had last time: salt.) The end was a bit bitter, so i craved another stick. Although I know it was lighter than my first cigar, I picked a Hoyo Des Dieux(which from what I remember was 4-5 years old, and was absolutely all delicious sweetness). I smoked at the window, and after the second stick I was a bit lightheaded, but in a pleasant way(the buzz). But I was feeling great. 5 hours later I played table tennis with my father( I came to stay at my parents for the week) and as soon as I began running around, I started feeling queasy, dizzy, nauseous, I began having cold sweats, and my bad headache was back. After I finished the game, on my father's suggestion, I had my blood pressure checked. And I was shocked. I had 130 systolic and 90 diastolic, and 93 pulse. I generally am a bit hypotensive so my blood pressure usually reads 90 systolic 70 diastolic. What is strange is that before I smoked I worked out and I felt fine. But after smoking, even some light tennis made me feel queasy. So what could it be? The sudden spike of blood pressure? But then how could I feel fine after working out? Does smoking have anything to do with it? After piecing the puzzle I noticed that all the days when I felt sick after smoking, were days when I either had a busy day, and had to walk around a lot, or days when I played tennis. What do you think is wrong?
  8. Nicotine sickness

    Well I just talked to a friend of mine, who is twice my age, and who has been suffering from the same condition for the past 30 years, who doesn't smoke, and she claims that the symptoms I described are typical of my condition. And apparently, there are fluctuations, sometimes I can feel nearly perfect, and sometime, like now, I can feel like crap. So, for now, I will continue smoking... We shall see. Thank you for all the kind replies and for all your great advice. I will keep you posted...
  9. Nicotine sickness

    Last question, out of that list, you had to smoke one last cigsr, which would you pick?
  10. Nicotine sickness

    He doesn't smoke, he has respiratory problems. What a healthy family. Maybe I will give them to my father, maybe...
  11. Nicotine sickness

    Well I will smoke again the day after tomorrow, outside(though cold), and if afterwards I still feel bad I will quit. But what will I do with the rest of the cigars?
  12. Nicotine sickness

    If, perchance, I am able to quit, then, it won't be for a while, it will be forever, probably. But so far I have failed, twice.
  13. Nicotine sickness

    Maybe you're right. But, I have always had biliary problems, since I was born(my gallbladder is sort of twisted), and I am also suffering, for the last 12 years from Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. So my health is great...
  14. Nicotine sickness

    You mean when I felt pepperiness in 3 cigars? Then never again?
  15. Nicotine sickness

    The symptoms remind of those of a biliary crisis, and lately I keep getting these, so maybe it is just a biliary crisis with a dash of nicotine sickness. i have done all things I do to relieve a biliary crisis(take a shower, take some pills etc) and I feel much better. Especially after the shower.
