  2. and just to confuse things further, CCW shows this as the D4 band - note the "." after the word Partagas, after the 'D', and after the '4'. I've never seen a D4 with dots in these places before.....The cigar I was gifted has the "." which matches CCW, but the cigar I bought from FOH does not have the "."
  3. Below are pictures of D4 that I bought from FOH for comparison
  4. What do you guys think of this D4 that I was gifted? I will withhold my thoughts and see what you guys have to say
  5. With the 1/4 box options that Rob was awesome enough to offer on many of the aged stuff recently from PCC, it’s a great way to sample some aged examples before committing to buying a box or two to put away on your own. **This is an entirely different animal than the auctions, I’m not looking to open that can of worms. The PCC program are only 5 years old, and generally consisted of regular production cigars and are priced accordingly.** What would you really like to see in the next PCC Aged Program? For me: PLPC RASS More Cohiba stuff Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Well wouldn’t ya know it, the cigar I pull out to smoke and review for the Old Faithful review turns out to be a complete wind tunnel. Go figure huh?? Lol The Bolivar Coronas Junior, along with the Party Shorts, SCDH Principe, and BPC are really consistently great. Big fan of the small format cigars. I went with the BCJ because the Bolivars are my favorite marca. The BCJ typically gives me a real strong hit of clean tobacco, earthy mushrooms with a dark sweetness, and some dark roasted black coffee. All topped off with a pinch of some spice on the retrohale and the finish. Delivered in a solid 45 minutes, I can often stretch the BCJ and other minutos and marevas for an hour of smoking enjoyment. Unfortunately this example was not one of my finer experiences. When I picked this one out I actually feared it was overfilled and would be a tight draw. It was exactly the opposite, burning way too fast and hot no matter how slow I sipped it. But that’s the name of the game, gotta share the bad stories and the good stories! Overall I’d give this cigar a 6/10. BCJ in general is an 8.5/10 for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Just had an incredible Monte 2 tonight from 2016. I know these mainstays are often passed over for “sexier” cigars but man when they are on like this, they are incredible. Medium-full bodied, mild-medium strength, full flavored cocoa chocolatey goodness. Little bit of pepper on the finish. A draw that’s right in the sweet spot and a burn that requires no touch ups. A solid 92 point cigar for me. What a treat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. From a 10-ct box of tubos. Smoked a few of these now. Appearance: Cigars from this box all have wrappers that are darker and thicker than I prefer. Not terrible looking though, but still not what I’d pick first out of a lineup. Smoking characteristics: Took a little extra flame to get toasted up. Once I got it lit, it smoked fine. Draw is a little more open than I prefer. Burn line and smoke output are great. Only 1 touch up required. Cigar seemed to be burning a little hot. Taste: Good. Not great. All cigars from this box have been the same. Darker more earthy flavors, not so much of that Bolivar licorice and chocolate that I like. This one in particular was a bit on the harsh side. Long finish. There were flashes of that sweetness in the middle of the smoke, but nowhere near enough. Overall: Despite not being a stellar cigar, I still smoked it to the end, like I said it was good but it wasn’t great. I am more convinced now than ever before that wrapper has a distinct influence on the profile of the cigar. The thick dark wrapper definitely gives me more of the dark earthy flavors, with a touch of harshness. Tastes more like a Nicaraguan cigar to me. Paired it with a can of Coke. 82/100 PS - sorry I was only able to get 1 picture, smoked this on the deck at night and didn’t have much light. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I think Minutos/Perlas should be separate from PC's. But, having said that, I went with the Siglo 2 edging out the BPC slightly
  10. Nah can’t hurt to try at all. It’s only cigars, experimenting is half the fun. I just fall more into the school of thought that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. DON'T! If the cigars are smoking the way you like, don't change a thing!!!
  12. It's looking like it. My big one is full. I bought a smaller one a few months ago that I have a couple of 10-count boxes in, was hoping this cab would fit in there too but it's not gonna be tall enough. The struggle is real
  13. Just ordered a cab of the PLPC from the 24:24, and I'm hoping they will fit in the tupperware that I already have. Can anyone give me the outside dimensions of the cab please? Much appreciated! -Tom
