  1. Well, I had multiple experiences like that with that cigar, but the best one was by far when I got up at 3 in the morning, went to the flat above my garage, brewed myself a tea, smoked and wrote... What a morning... Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  2. So could it just be the aging? I worry that I will never get an experience like that again... The Epicure must have been from around 2013-14 or so... But it was amazing, just pure sweetness... Yet when I reached for one from 2016 it was just spicy... Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  3. I want to buy a box of HDM Epicure no.2 from before the blend change. At some point, around 2015, or so, I believe, the Epicure no.2 changed from honey and brown sugar pure sweetness to a much darker, spicy blend, which frankly I don't enjoy too much. Does anybody know in what year did the blend change? Or could it be just that the aged ones are sweet? Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  4. I have experienced acrid and bitter flavour in both cigars with too high and too low humidity... The ash looks like one at low humidity... Then again, I enjoy cigars at 67 Rh... Too me any lower and you get just harsh and dry flavourless smoke. My theory is that in places with lower humidity than 60-ish RH you need a higher humidity for storage and in places with higher humidity you need lower RH storage...

  5. RIP MOM

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss Mike, I have been lucky enough not to go through that experience yet, and I hope I won't for as long as possible, but just the thought of it, of losing any of my parents, makes me feel a cold sweat and a chill on my spine. I hope, at least, that you can take the pain that you are going through and turn it into something else, something that will at least give you numbness, if not joy... I offer my sincere condolences...
  6. Cigars to stock up on

    If anybody is ever so curious of the box code of the ERDM Demi Tasse, they were SGA MAY 17, surprisingly not too oily, but amazing... I also forgot to mention the nutiness... It is funny how I can find so many aged boxes of cigars but I cannot find any Fonsecas, or Quai D'Orsay Coronas(I can find the Imperiales, and I really think I should buy a box, but I keep postponing that buy, and so many others... BCG, SLR SA...)
  7. I was very curious to hear your opinion, kind gentlemen, of the Hoyo de Monterrey Elegantes, for I haven't seen any reviews of them on the forum. The price seems reasonable, as does the ring gauge... What would you compare it to and what are the main flavours. Can you buy them blind or do they suffer from construction issues?
  8. I am taking a break from smoking for about 3-4 months because I have no cigars left that have been acclimatized, and smoking them ROTT has mostly been unsatisfying, and if not unsatisfying, has been an incomparable experience, as such it would be like setting money on fire, a complete waste. I had one last box I bought from our courteous and cordial host, a box of ERDM Demi Tasse, which out of the box were muddy and grubby, which pretty much made me want to spit after each puff, but after less than 3 weeks of acclimatizing they became became an amalgam of sweet coffee and fruit and sort of cotton candy, just just great. On one sleepless night, I smoked about 6, and they were amazing, but after about the 3rd the aroma in the room was so intoxicatingly sweet to the point that you wanted to blow the smoke away from your nose, out of fear of either falling in love or losing your mind(not much of a difference, really). As such I decided any further smoking without letting the cigars acclimatize would be a waste... Until then I decided to stock up with about 100-200 hundred cigars, and letting them rest until the beginning of July... So far, I decided I must get one box of aged HdM Epicure no.2 from 2014, which were amazing and sweet, a box of ERDM Choix Supreme and a box of Cohiba Robusto... The rest remains undecided Anyway, I was wondering if you have any recommendations for cigars to stock up on especially those with a sweet, fruity, citrusy, tangy cigars, but recommendations of any kind, even that aren't of this profile will be highly appreciated. (Just please don't recommend anything that has pepper as the main flavour, for I really hate it, also dry tannic smokes.) Budget is mostly not an issue.(Unless we are talking about Reservas...)
  9. I was wondering if there were any cigars that don't age well. That get blander and blander with age...
  10. Do wrappers change the flavour of the cigars significantly? Are Rosado wrappers fruitier? Maduro wrappers more chocolatey? My two favourite flavours in a cigar are fruit(stonefruit, stewed fruit, citrus, tartness and pleasant sourness) and sweetness(honey, molases, brown sugar etc)? While smoking HDM Epi 2, I noticed that the ones that tasted sweetest were mostly claro-colorado... I remember the best I ever had with 4 years on it, pure honey and sweetness was a colorado wrapper, while others with darker wrappers were chocolatier and to my palate less enjoyable... Is it just a preconceived notion or is it true? Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  11. I was watching this video of this guy "Dave Dude" who was reviewing this special cigar I'd never heard off before, calling it the best cigar he had ever smoked. Out of curiousity I googled it and looked for a price, and I found a whole humidor sold for 26500 pounds, which is insane... I did find others which were around 3000(but now whole)... Has anyone ever tried one? I'd be very interested to hear your thoughts... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk

    How do you deal with adding a new box of cigars to the humidor. In my tupperdor(I ordered a cooler that will arrive shortly) I had 25 ERDM Demi Tasse. I let those acclimatise for 3 weeks and they became amazing, a mix of cotton candy and coffee, the aroma is especially mesmerising. In a week I smoked about 10 and they were stellar. Last Friday I added 10 RA Club Allones EL 2015. This Wednesday I tried a Demi Tasse and it tasted like the ones I tasted when I first smoked from the box before acclimatising, yesterday I tried another and it was the same, and the same today... Just muddy and disgusting. The Rh was a bit lower than usually(62), so I added another Boveda and now the RH is the same as before adding the RAs (65-66) but they are way off. Could it be that the RAs affected the cigar? I am especially worried since I bought another box of RA Club Allones (which are dryboxing) and I am afraid that it will affect the cigars even more once I add those to the humidor. What should I do?

    Even stranger is that fact that even if they go out, they are still hot to the touch... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  14. Newcomer (Newbie) Q&A

    I generally smoke very slowly, an ERDM Demi Tasse, takes me about 40-50 minutes... But it depends on the cigar... But I will say that mine seems to overheat even before I puff... If I hold the cigar from about 1-2 cm from the burning foot, it nearly burns me, and if I know correctly it is not supposed to... And this didn't happen until 4 months ago... As for the Boveda pack, I don't have that many cigars but I have never needed to replace it... They have never dried out, even when I had, 50 cigars... I keep them in tupperware... But I am thinking of switching to a cooler... In fact I think I will go tomorrow to buy one... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  15. Newcomer (Newbie) Q&A

    Why are my cigars overheating is it that they are too dry or too wet? Or am I lighting them too eagerly? I generally use matches or cedar spills because torch lighters just seem to incinerate the cigar leaving them tasteless and overheated. But lately they have been overheating even with matches... I used to use 65 Rh Boveda pack, but after about 50 ruined cigars I realised that they were to dry... Now I am using 69rh Boveda packs but they still seem to dry... The cigars have acclimatised for over a month but they feel dry, if I squeeze them they crack... They aren't spongy... Should I switch to Heartfelt beads? If so should I use 65 or 70rh beads? Right now I am smoking a 6 year old Cohiba Lancero, and it is sweet and herbaceous and delicious, but there is a backdrop of harshness and it is overheating? I tried cutting and relighting it gently but to no avail... What should I do? I keep them at 20 degrees Celsius as recommended by Boveda... But they don't seem to work properly...
