    Some great cigars over the past few weeks. A beautifully aged Punch Punch from my friend Will ( @baragh). A Ritz "Coco" Churchill. A very pleasant smoke. Smoothe sweetness on the retro hale. It had a very nice liquer taste on the palate. Similar to Contrieu like the Monte A that @JohnS And I smoked at @DirtyHarry s place. BUP NOV 17 Partagas Lusitania from my friend @Akela3rd. All I can say is "Oh my god! Where have these cigars been in my life!" My first Lusitania and I absolutely loved it. Thanks so much Neil! GOS AGO 18 Montecristo No.2 from @JohnS a wonderful smoke. I really enjoyed this lighter wrapper youthful cigar. It was full of intense nut and mild coffee flavours. Very interesting to try. My last MC N2 was generously given to me from @IanMcLean68 which was aged and had a darker wrapper. I found the darker wrapper MCN2 in opinion had more intense coffee and Mocha flavours (which I also love). Great to smoke and compare these two! MOL JUL 18 Cohiba Esplendidos from @JohnS Great cigar! Thank you so much John. I almost nubbed it!

    Ahh yes. You reminded me. I forgot to post up my conti pics! It was a very well constructed cigar. But as @JohnS mentioned. It was a very one dimensional cigar and did get a bit boring past the halfway point.

    It was nice but compared to my last memory (when I had one at Robs deck) smoking this cigar, it was missing a bit of "gusto" if you know what i mean. Still nice..but not all there... yet! Maybe age will help

    OLM OCT 15 Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro courtesy of @JohnS. Thank you for this! At the start I got some nice sweet fruit and bread notes. It reminded me of Panettone. A bit of spice on the retrohale. Towards the mid point I then started to get a bit of a Paneforte taste of fruit, nuts and a touch of chocolate. It was as if I was eating freshly made Paneforte that my Nonna makes every year. Spice on the retrohale had gone by this point. The panforte flavours continued until the end and the spice on the retrohale picked up again. Lovely cigar. Thanks again John!

    I still can't believe how great the flavours were. I loved the Monte A we smoked. I'm glad I have some in my OLH. I am excited to see how they are after 5 years of aging. Maybe more!

    When I was looking through my humidor that wrapper caught my eye. That's why I decided to smoke it!

    Cigar photo dump from this week. Really enjoyed the Sautter custom roll Super Mario. Smoked this with @JohnSIt was like a Partagas SDN4 on steroids! Beautiful black pepper notes, Partagas shortbread and a touch of bell pepper. Monte A - wow! Loved this. 3 hour smoke. Toasted tobacco, coffee and also a very interesting note of almonds, frangelico hazelnut liqueur, and a very nice Orange citrus cointreau twang. Smoked this with @JohnS. We were blown away by this flavour profile!

    I agree. Now keep in mind I have only smoked 2 of each QdO 50 and 54... I found that they both started off nicely in regards to flavour and combustion. Towards the end...they seem to just die In the arse... I was at a QdO 54 tasting in London with @stephan and I remember at the end of the night there were alot of QdO 54s left in the ash tray that had about 2.5 inches left. My 54 had alot of combustion issues past the halfway point. I just had to put it down (unfortunately). I won't give up on them. But they do need some time down to rest.
  15. Enjoyable review to read @Akela3rd! I love the Culebras. The capsicum flavour (bell pepper) that you describe is spot on. I find these to be powerhouses good flavour that I believe will age for 5 - 10 years nicely
