  2. Thats my bad. CLARO means the wrapper color. From the size of the stamp is the box from the 60-ies.

  4. Found this cigar in the abounded Widow & Orphan Cabinett. 5 little you will have a jolly good time cigars. They seems to be very old and this one is my last one. Wrapper - ugly and veiny. Cold draw - like a Christmas pudding with a lot of orange inside and hints of peppermint. Leather and yes tobacco. Ash is a bit flaky. So far a medium smoke with dark and bitter taste. A lot of smoke, very relaxing. The bitterness turns into a nice spearmint taste. Still on the lower medium side. Very enjoyable. Last year around Eastern I was smoking them with two friends. Was a lovely afternoon. The last third has its twist. From a smooth medium smoke it turns into a full body smoke. After all these year still wild at heart. Smoking time: 120 minutes πŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨

  7. My actual oldest cigar is a Punch from the sixties. A Coronation in a Alutube. Than it is a huge gap. SP Bachilleres from 1989, followed by a Partagas SdC No. 3 from 1999. I like when a bit of age is on. And this was my oldest cigar I ever had.
  8. This little beauty I was gifted from a great BOTL. As I don't know the Box Code I took the year they were HSA axed. It's a very small figurados cigar. Called Infantes Size: 37x98 Cold draw: yeast dough and chillies. Draw not so perfect let's see how it will pans out. Loads of white pepper and bitter black tea. Burn is a bit uneven, but in this size I don't correct it. Draw is perfect for me. Ash is very dark and little globus like mercury crystallize it out of it. Smoke is getting smoother & creamy. Wow this little beauty has the full steam - that's a full body smoke. Taste of burned creme brΓ»lΓ©e. Smoking time: 60 minutes πŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨ A very nice gift πŸŽπŸ‘πŸ’
  9. I love Review weekends. So much fun. Always a good chance to savor the last of it kind. Always a good chance to learn a lot. What I really regret is that I didn't had the guts to go deep when I had the chance to buy them. Well that's gone. May be Rob is doing a great relaunch of the Serie. I would deeply appreciated it and all my kudos and hats of for him and his team. So go back to topic. Review time. So Baby, time to get the punch. Cold draw is perfect. It's starting with veeerrry dark espresso. Not bad for nearly 20 years. A very dry smoke. Chocolate, sweet and very creamy. Some hints of cinnamon. Something between mild and medium. 70 minutes of pleasure. Recommendations - when you have the chance to lay your hands on it, do it.
  10. Congratulation @havanaclub. i love those review weekends, so much fun. So what's next?
  11. Thanks for the review. I love Review weekends. "Same" cigars different experience.
  12. My choice would be the Reyes. As @Optic101 just wrote. Have a box from 08 and these are kickass flavor bombs. Sometimes the construction & wrapper is very poor, so just wait until President call them out and than dig deeep πŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨ just my 0,02$.
  13. Thanks for the review. Outstanding smoke πŸ‘πŸΎ
  14. When they came out I was intrigued by the format. Hoyo de Monterrey Elegantes SOM NOV 16 (HRW) like the Partagas Presidentes. Yumm yumm. So I bought some boxed but never tried them. The Hoyo Review Weekend is a very good reason to give them a shot. Friday after work, straight away down to the harbor with the dogs enjoying the first sun of spring. Format: Taco Size: 47/158 First draw, perfect with a small resistance. Cold draw - I forgot about it πŸ˜” Burn was razor sharp. A pleasant medium smoke. Hope you like the pics. What I really regret is that's not a cigar you walk the dogs. It wouldn't do it justice. Would rather prefer to smoke it on the deck or in a cafe to take the time to savor it. And yes I am quite happy I bought a few of them πŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨. What is your thoughts about them? shitty pitty the pics are upside down πŸ˜–
  15. When they came out my vendor talked me in to them. Honestly I never regretted. The last one I smoked is a couple of years back. Draw was good. Size 50 X 155 Cold draw - apricot and rose hips. Big volume smoke, burn was razor sharp even it was quite windy on the deck. Loads of white pepper, in the middle black tea and chilly. The finish a tannic bitterness but not in a bad way. All in all a mild smoke. A great start for the first smoke on the deck. Hope you liked the review & pics. I am gonna read the other reviews πŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨
