  1. Thanks. I certainly felt that the monte 80th had a more intense chocolate characteristic than the DE, and was beautifully smooth. From what you're saying the Leyenda would need quite a bit of time down.
  2. Hi NSX, How would you compare them to the linea 1935 Leyenda ? I've yet to try one, but like you I'm a big fan of the DE, and also the 80th Aniversario.
  3. Nothing too fancy: RyJ Churchill Hoyo Epicure No. 2 Partagas D4 Montecristo No. 5
  4. I think Churchill/DCs are the best vitolas of all-I love the extra time and the evolution you get with them. I like them all, but my favourite was the Robaina Don Alejandro before they were axed. My current favourite is the Hoyo DC, with its creamy cake profile and the RAG with its fruity element. The RyJ Churchill is splendid at times, average at others-so inconsistent, but when you get a good one it's a tantalising creamy Cherry and rosewater ride. These three are what I prefer to smoke on a regular basis. The esplendidos and Sir Winston are certainly great cigars but I think they are not wo
  5. Only seen one of the three and I think I remember that line, maybe
  6. Thank God for the great cigars that got us through this stressful year. My 2020 "crutches" so to speak were: Montecristo Number 2 Hoyo Rio Seco Partagas D4 Bolivar Petit Corona Hoyo Petit Robusto Have a happy festive season everyone!
  7. Really looking forward to your video review series... one of the Hs possibly Rio Seco as I put it in the hot category of my smoking this year.
  8. Your Regular Production Cigar of the Year (2017 - 2020 production). - Montecristo No. 2 Your Specialty Production Cigar of the Year (2017 - 2020 production). - El Rey del Mundo La Reina UK Regional Edition 2018. Don’t smoke many specialties, but was impressed with this skinny-nicely balanced and complex. Your Best New Release (2019/2020 production ) - Trinidad Esmeralda. A class act. Your Most Improved (2017 - 2020 production) - Montecristo No. 2. This has become overall richer and more creamy than before making a good cigar great. Your Mr. Dep
  9. I’d be happy smoking these in 2030: BBF Cohiba Lanceros Cohiba Siglo VI Hoyo DC RyJ Belicoso Upmann Sir Winston Upmann Magnum 46 Montecristo No. 4 JLS 1 Punch DC
  10. I love the flavour profile, especially with a few years on them, and at $3.4 per cigar when last bought on special offer here it’s good value. And I can make them last 30 minutes if smoked slowly.
  11. Consistent Smoking Enjoyment. 1. Punch Punch 2. Robaina Famosos 3. Partagas D4 Best value (bang for buck) 1. ERDM Demi Tasse 2. RG Perlas 3. Monte No. 5 Your best smoking experience of 2020 1. Hoyo San Juan 2. Hoyo Rio Seco 3. RyJ Churchill
  12. Just checked . The offending boxes were LGR Jun 18 LGR Nov 17 LGR Oct 17
  13. I’ve just been through 3 boxes of El Principe which were uniformly poor, but the Principe was my favourite short smoke before then, now I won’t be buying any more. I wish I knew the answer why this can happen too. I’m guessing just a poor batch of tobacco to that factory (they were all LGR).
  14. Not a fan of the format, however I do really like the Hoyo, and am resting a box of Media Luna to try as I've heard such good things about it.
  15. These are strange times, its true, We try our best to struggle through, Longing to travel, still can't go far The only comfort is to have a cigar.
  16. Pitched:Last one was fortunately 6 months ago but I remember it well-a 18 PLPC just bitter & twisted. Nubbed: Punch Punch also from 18 a couple of days ago, baking spices, cinnamon and cream. Yummy
