  1. June 2019: smoking my 3rd stick from my box after hanging on to them for a year. Wonky burn issues with each one. Wrapper seems extra thick. Cigar is maturing a bit flavor-wise though. Will try another in 4-6 months time.
  2. Thank you for the suggestions. Time to semi- retire the multiple desktop humidors and obtain the best possible storage for my humble collection.
  3. Depending on where you are going to be in LA: the Cigar Warehouse in Sherman Oaks and Fat Stogies in Encino are solid. There are good spots in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills if you are closer to those areas. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. @sean3 I am a transplanted Detroiter in LA. The Motor City Kitties last wan an NFL championship on Jan 14, 1957; 2 weeks before I was born. Many years of hope yet letdown for sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Have smoked 4 of these from 4 different boxes. Agree 100%. Tailed off last 2/3. Seems aging could help some; at least I hope so as have 10'sticks left.
  6. I have been elk hunting at high elevation for almost two decades. The air pressure dies effect most butane torches/lighters. A few mfrs make lighters specifically for high elevation. I always take two of these with me. MRastigue
  7. Thanks for the review. I have purchased 4 boxes of this 2015 LE and have smoked a few sticks from each box. Though there are definitely some more than subtle differences between boxes; all have been a pleasure to smoke. I concur with you/Rob how special this release is and have my stash aging comfortably.
  8. Have purchased multiple boxes of these. I concur with Rob that they are one of the best CCs now. Anxious to smoke one eachnquarter until,they reach their peak then "have at" them until Infinish them off. Likely to store 3-4 to see if they hold their flavor profile at the 10'year mark.
  9. Enjoy. All the best. Michael J. Rastigue III IPad sent
  10. My contact got a box of Trinidad 2016 LE's and shared one with me.
  11. Great cache today. Some Limited Edition Cohibas and Tinidad and some Anniversary issues of Partagas and Cohiba. Smoking the Trinidad 2016 as I type this. Though fresh it has great flavor sand huge upside once laid down a bit. MRastigue
  12. After some spring cleaning in the yard and planting some heirloom tomatoes, lit up a RA 2015 Limitada with a new S.T. DuPont toy.... Michael J. Rastigue III IPad sent
