  1. I'm pretty excited for these! They look and smell great.
  2. This was a very nice example of these cigars with a nice medium-light colored wrapper that has a bit of sheen. Pre-light flavors include hay, a hint pound cake and a bit of spice. The draw was somewhat firm, though definitely nowhere near plugged I enjoyed this cigar with a pour over of Camilina Gesha from Dragonfly Coffee Roasters. This coffee has prominent berry flavors and is a medium-light roast that really brought out some of the flavors from this cigar. First Third: This cigar started out with quite a bit of agave-like sweetness and some classic Cohiba hay flavors. There was also a hint of lemon flavor. The burn was very even throughout and the smoke was rich and thick and there was quite a strong nicotine kick. The body was a solid medium. It definitely reminded me quite a bit for a Siglo II that I smoked recently and was more similar to the Siglo line than these cigars usually are. There was a touch of spice on the retrohale, but it wasn’t harsh at all Second Third: The body moved towards medium light. The agave sweetness and lemon became more prominent while there was less hay flavor during this section. The ash was light-colored and flaky. The draw also became a bit less firm and some toasted tobacco and pound cake flavors entered the mix. Towards the last third, more spiciness became apparent. The retrohale was very smooth and sweet during this section. All of the flavors were moving in and out quite a bit over the course of this section. Final Third: By the final third, this cigar displayed many classic Cohiba traits, with the body moving back to just over medium. This section was markedly less sweet. The flavors were a delicious combination of hay, spice and a bit of lemony citrus. There was also a hint of blueberry flavor that was probably intensified by the coffee I paired with it. The retrohale was still smooth and a bit spicy, though still not harsh at all. Smoke time: 60 minutes Conclusions: This is definitely one of my favorite cigars, and this example didn’t disappoint! It was very complex, and the smoking experience was extremely pleasant. The burn was just about perfect all the way through, require not even the slightest bit of touch up. If I had one complaint, it was that the draw was a little bit firmer than other examples of this cigar, though the firmness of the draw added to the complexity, which was more than I have experienced in some other examples of the already typically complex cigar. All in all, it was full of classic Cohiba DNA and I enjoyed it immensely. All of the CCEs I have had of this box code have been truly spectacular smoking experiences! I am looking forward to smoking the rest of this box and then aging the other box of these that I have. Score: 94/100
  3. It is ueb dic 18. I've smoked two so far. The one in the picture was very good, but the previous one had a tighter draw than I would have liked. Both of them looked very nice and had very good flavor.
  4. I go to a lot of shows (mostly metal and punk shows), and have gone to a couple of exceptional ones lately. I went and saw Pile at the bootleg theater a couple weeks ago and that one was amazing. They have a couple of member who were switched out since their previous album and their new one is really good. Another really good show was the Pg.99 and Majority rule reunion a few months back. Those are both bands that I have liked for a long time, but really was too young to have seen them when they were first playing shows. On the other hand, I went to see the original Misfits last weekend, and didn't really like it much, though I have never been much of a Misfits fan. They definitely put on a good show. I am just not much of a fan of their music.
  5. This is a cigar that I have actually had varied experiences with. Most of the examples in a previous box that I had purchased were too tight, and a number were completely unsmokable. This more recent box that I have been smoking through has been much better, and this particular stick was a particularly nice example that I set aside. The construction was pretty impeccable and the wrapper was nice looking. Pre-light draw: Cream flavor with a hint of hay. The draw was fairly loose. First Third: The predominant flavors are sweet, light cream with a bit of butteriness. The body was medium becoming a bit lighter towards the second third. The burn was extremely even which was surprising given the amount of wind where I was smoking it. Smoke production levels were high. The ash was quite solid for how loose the draw was. As I was getting closer to the second third, there was an increase in sweetness. Throughout this third, the retrohale had a little bit of harshness. Second Third: Throughout this section, the sweetness continued to intensify, though the cigar as a whole became milder. The creaminess continued to be the predominant flavor, and the burn continued to be very consistent, requiring no touching up. Towards the next third, the flavors became more intense and the body became more full. Final Third: In the final third, the draw became a little bit tighter and the burn was slower. The previous flavors were still there. There was also a good bit of hay, twang and a bit of spice. It definitely reminded me of a few Cohiba Coronas Especiales that I have smoked recently. By this section, the retrohale had become very smooth and tasted really good. I smoked this cigar all the way down to the nub. Smoke time: 48 minutes This cigar was pretty much just as good as I thought it might be before I smoked it. Though it was not as complex as some of the other cigars from this box, smoke production and burn were about as good as I have experienced in this cigar and the flavors were very tasty. 92/100
