  1. I like them fresh off the truck! After that though I find they need 6 months. Increasingly finding Cubans are good within 12-18 months of box date but then need 3-5 years...the "sick period" is real in my experience. Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk
  2. Mag 54s have a leathery/jerky quality to me although is balanced with cream Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk
  3. Mine are long gone but they were epic cigars! Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk
  4. This is heaven on Earth..i cannot believe this place is in our city of all places in the world..a great testament to Nick's efforts. Rob, thank you so so much for getting us set up this last year!!! Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk
  5. H Upmann Petit Corona. Absolutely stunning cigar. Easily 95 points. H upmann flavours like walking past a bakery Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  6. In Aus the tax is the main cost. And that goes up every year. I find NCs just as expensive ad CCs given your mainly paying for weight. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  7. Sounds like they could be a bit "wet". What are you running your humidor at? I find cigars kept up near 70 can taste a bit green sometimes. Another thing to try would be to dry-box for a couple of days before you smoke. This makes a big difference to the overall smoking experience for me. Lastly, you do have some young cigars there and they may just need some time to smooth out. Cheers Dicko Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  8. Ok so first two I would say are rosado wrappers (one is an r&j Cazadores which is often cited as being good with a red wrapper. One is a Fuente Rosado Sungrown.) The third is a PL picadores which i think has a grey/brown wrapper..the 4th a cohiba which has a colarado claro golden type wrapper. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  9. Rob from time to time will mention in the 24/24 that a cigar has a rosado wrapper. Of course, they are primarily brown but they have a red or orange tint/hue to them. As opposed to a yellow or grey or black hue. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  10. My personal experience is that wrappers make a big difference to the flavour of a cigar. I like all shades but if I had to pick one I would choose rosado. I think they look great and find they can add a nice cedar and leather element to a cigar. Does anyone have any thoughts on rosado wrappers? Do you like them? I think you can see a reddish hue to both lighter or darker wrappers and for me they often signal quality flavours. Would love to hear some of your thoughts.

  11. Right now I'd say my favourite beverage pairing is a good quality rum. But many other drinks work - tea, coffee, colas, alcohol of all types - its gonna come down to personal preference. I like a touch of sweetness in the mix.
  12. I always have one or two off the truck (and often they are great) but then I'll leave it 2-3 months (longer the better) to let them settle to my humi conditions.
  13. 1) Monte anything 2) Rafael gonzalez PC 3) Partagas short
