  1. Is that the No. 1? If so I really enjoy that cigar.
  2. My favorite is probably an aged PLMC. Otherwise I'll just reach for anything light such as Fonseca or Vegueros.
  3. Same boat... Typically I make it longer than 48 hours into the new month but the budget was gone before I could blink this month.
  4. This is a very informative and honest review. Pretty similar to my only Cohiba Maduro experience as well. Thanks for sharing.
  5. Haha whenever you're purging 7 times you know things aren't going well! But just to be clear, is the one you smoked yesterday from the exact same box? If so that's awesome. It makes me optimistic for a few duds in my own humidor.
  6. Interesting, I didn't get any cream & honey which is more of what I was expecting from this marca. My can was from 2017 for reference. Who knows, it could always be up to interpretation and I certainly don't consider myself the source of truth. Organic products and opinions always vary. One thing I will say is that a lot of the cigars I got in my can were UGLY lol. There was one stick with so many water spots it looks like a leopard! Not sure how common this is and I don't really care at this price point. But in case anyone else does care, I source mine out of Hong Kong. You might do better in other regions.
  7. I think they're actually pretty good. Lots of notes reminiscent of tea. Sometimes they can be pretty rough looking and I always keep a draw tool near by for the Mananitas because they plug. But at the price point, they're a guilt free fun smoke with aging potential.
  8. Wow, sounds like it's smoking incredible so early. I love the 46 gauge on cigars too. Sigh.... guess I need to make the purchase lol.
  9. Your tasting notes are quite a bit different from what I got on mine (box from 2016) but I also didn't get any sweet cream. Tons of leather and tobacco spices. I'm going to lay it the rest down for a year and see what happens. Thanks for the review!
  10. It's a problem I have with a lot of skinny Cubans. So I just decided to invest in a PerfecDraw and now I don't have to deal with it anymore.
  11. Oh geez. That is quite the wrinkle lol. I do agree with @NSXCIGAR that it's weird to think of this as a band update when HSA described it this way on the press release: But maybe that's just because I don't want them to scrap the gold label. Especially the ones they use for the ER's. I like this red/white/gold combo just fine, but I would really miss that gold shine.
  12. No we aren't, Cuba is! 🤪🤣 But seriously, what you said makes perfect sense. Thank you for typing it all out. Guilty as charged. Thanks for the information. When I bought the Punch 48 I just figured it was a LCDH band redesign. Regardless, I really love the look of it. Oh, great point! And I actually appreciate that they used the "throw back" band on the Picadores. I think it's more fun than the double banding.
  13. I think you're correct. It's hard to find this information. Here's where I got confused: "Habanos s.a. introduces the new “Picadores” in Por Larrañaga brand, an exclusive production aimed to La Casa del Habano network" "Picadores was officially discontinued in the 70's but later on reproduced as part of the La Casa Del Habano (LCDH) line." Also the Friends of Habanos store also lists it as LCDH: EDIT - Just saw this Yeah I was wondering if maybe the boxes used to have the LCDH sticker on them but I don't believe they ever did. At least I feel that my confusion is justified
