  1. Thanks, much appreciated! I think it was just an anomaly as I've had a couple from the bundles and haven't encountered an ammonia on those but I don't want to risk any others since who knows how long it will be before we can return to the Island from the States.
  2. How long have you aged them? I've got a bundle from ENE 20 and got the dreaded ammonia kick on the last one at the start of the 2/3.
  3. x2. Foursquare makes fantastic rums from the budget to premium options. Their white rum collaboration with Hampden, called Probitas, is our go-to for any rum cocktail. It is perfect for a daiquiri or mojito. I'm enjoying the latter at the moment with a Punch Short de Punch.
  4. It was definitely an anejados as the box was purchased from our host. I’ve had a handful of them and they all had the second anejados band. Strange that this one was missed. ALP MAR 07 is the original box code on it.
  5. I had one last week with two forum friends and we all thought they were fantastic. Like a Hoyo with a little more kick and definitely mixed roasted nuts (same descriptor I used) addition that isn’t typically found on a Hoyo. Certainly not too young to be enjoyed.
  6. JL2 (EOS AGO 19). Smoking great for such a young cigar. A Papa daiquiri doesn’t hurt as well. 😋
  7. I had a single of the Karloff last Friday and thoroughly enjoyed it for a full bodied NC change of pace—beautiful construction and wrapper to boot. I picked up a couple boxes thereafter as they’re almost all sold out. Definitely try one if you can.
  8. I have not but have heard concerns about the capsule material. That's the rub with most off-brand options.
  9. It has been out for at least a year but recently out of stock. It is not a permanent item so who knows when it will disappear. There's also a Puerto Rico special release that's out right now and very good as well--quite similar to the Cuba to my taste. EDIT: Still is out of stock in the US.
