  1. So advanced for its time. I really hope the Porsche brings a street version of these back someday.
  2. Well I'm part of the way there. 2014 C4S is in the garage now. Absolutely love it. Espresso tan interior, glass sunroof, sport Chrono, manual transmission. Only two cars I would trade it for would be a 2018/9 911 GT3 with a tan interior (actually might not be an option) and painted arena red with a manual transmission. Or, a 993 turbo manual. Again, arena red on tan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Nespresso pairing for the Punch Punch Octomore 7.3 and 8.1 for the Platino Punch Punch First third: Creamy wood, slightly chalky. Mild notes of vanilla long on the palate. White pepper and floral aspects through the nose Second third: Sweetwood intensifies. Umami charred mushroom develops in a delicious savory way. Black pepper and stronger floral notes through the nose. Final third: Seeetness has faded toasted French bread almonds and oak is present. No floral thorough the nose any longer. Platino Really, a beautiful specimen. Having smoked numerous of these prior I can say without any reservation that this cigar was a much better release than the punch gold medal for the UK. Also interesting to note that this is the only regional that was made in the exact same size as a current regular production cigar in the same Marca I did not take as many notes as I would’ve liked however overall I would say that the Pitino was much “dryer“ or, less sweet than the fresh punch punch. There were certain points during the second third of the cigar where some mild woody sweetness did show through however rich umami flavors roasted meats and nuts combined with intense floral notes with the retro were the theme throughout. I burned this cigar much further down compared to what I usually do as it was exceptional to the nub. Burn and draw were perfect throughout never a touch up needed. Very true to the marca in terms of flavor. 10 years has done this cigar well. I easily consider this one of my favorite regionals of all time. 97/100 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Fair, but Lanceros are the real difference. "IF" you can even find them. Cohiba Lancero: $625-650 Trinidad Fundadores: $400-450 Monte Especiales $350-400 Most NC Lanceros 200-300. I find more boutique NC brands are starting to embrace the lancero, corona and lonsdale at reasonable prices while Cuba continues to get rid of them. My two favorite cigars at the moment aside from my NC Caldwell lanceros 85 for $750 are JSK Tyrannical Buc Connecticut Corona at $8 and Warped Cloud Hopper Corona at $6. Make Cuban Lanceros Great Again.... and reasonably priced.
  5. Please tell me that its not Secreto in Ferndale lol. Also, is the second Big Rock? Lets meet for a cigar.
  6. I believe it is in order to reduce the ABV and solute. When too high the saturation prevents the ability to distinguish flavors on the palate. IMHO.
  7. Most consistent: All Punch, Cohiba Lancero and Esplendido Least: Monte, All other Cohiba, most robustos.
  8. F: Punch Ninfas K: Any monteseco such as the RyJ wide Chruchill (55x5.1) or the HURR M: Cohiba lancero
  9. I think it would depend on the availability. For instance, it's fairly difficult to get Monte especiales or CoLa at the moment. If the brand only had a montecarlos, slim pantela (MDO no 4) and a petite corona that was readily available it would likely suffer. BUT, if the Double lancero was available all over it would thrive.
  10. Por Larranaga 109 Simon Chase shiny UK style bands. Packaging similar to the Bushido but also available in 50 cabs.
  11. which one? Always looking for one in the future to smoke in.
