  1. Lol! I believe I can find the nuances of the cigars listed based on experience, but i know that will change once flame hits the foot. Also based on experience…😅
  2. aged cubans, well aged cigars in general, is a mixed bag. i find time can round flavors out, sometimes making certain flavors more prominent and sometimes making them more balanced and less distinct. like some have said, sample from the box over time to see if they are at a point that you like. a crap box typically will always be a crap box no matter the age. but if you try one and its in the sweet spot for you move that box into your rotation. early in my collecting i used to think ‘wow, this is a great cigar. i gotta lay them down and let them become a stupendous cigar.’ only to
  3. I definitely fall into this group. Was well into a career in corporate aviation. Great pay and benefits. Was just getting into the executive bonus pool as a department head. Hit the age of 29 and said ‘I cant keep this up without losing myself’. Office life was dragging on me. Gave 3 months notice and planned for going back to school.

  7. I picked this fiver up, along with the Partagas Eminentes withe red top in the back, about 10 years ago. Original thinking was to have one around my birthday as they are about as old as I am, but like most things I forget or move on cause I don’t find the time. Yesterday was a beaut of a day in the northeast and just didn’t have a reason not to pull it out. The cigar itself is rough looking, which is a good thing to me. The ugly duckling has so much more to offer me type of thing, and not surprising for a machine made cigar. Cello is nice and brown, with the veins that have been in
  8. With all the good stuff coming out of cuba the list is somewhat endless and more based in what you’d want. Shouldnt the question be what won’t last 10 years?? then go from there. i wouldnt know. everything i buy i plan to smoke now, while im here.
  9. For me, the small club cigars are more impulsive of a smoke much like a cigarette. A cigar needs some time to take in and enjoy.
