  1. Stellar Monte No. 1 at the end of the day with the puppers after a downpour.
  2. This Monte was wonderful. Celebrating with loved ones in such a beautiful location, pausing to reflect and spend time together made it the best of June.
  3. Two gorgeous boxes. First up, Vegas Robaina Famosos - BSM MAY 2020 and...Spanish sourced Montecristo Edmundos from Recent 24/24 - BUP FEB 2018
  4. Bolivar Petite Corona LRE ABR 2009 Another winner from a great box. I find most of the earthiness is gone and leather and fruity sweetness to be the main players with a bit of cocoa and wood, blended just beautifully. Such an enjoyable smoke this morning on the patio with Colombian Huila Region Coffee and cream.
  5. Cohiba Day! CoRo LAT DIC 2017. Spanish sourced 24/24 that are just beautiful. Siglo II EGT JUL 2020
  6. Took the plunge on delivery day with an ENE 2021 RJ Churchill from 1/4 box sales. Beautiful cigar...golden hour sunlight made it look a bit more rosado than it really was but the first pleasant. One of those cigars I wonder how the flavors are packed in there! Rose water, toasted tobacco and hints of cherry. Just so encouraging! Slightly more challenging on the draw but hey, it was ROTT. Second half, all the reasons we don’t/shouldnt or... are encouraged not to expect much from cigars right off the truck. In part I went for it after seeing a 0, 30, 60 day experiment Prez did las
  7. Secretos TEB ABR 08 from the recent 24/24. Trinidad Topes Clearance GLE MAR 20 Montecristo Especiales No. 2 UMR OCT 20
  8. First Montecristo Especiales No. 2 for me. Thoroughly enjoyed the delicious sweet and dark cocoa flavors with a bit of cream and occasional baking spice. Wonderful chocolatey, nutty aroma and a great draw paired with morning coffee, beautiful weather and good 2 hour Sunday morning conversation with my wife on the patio. Sorry for the extreme focus pic. Finished working the garden this morning and nobody wants to see my hands/nails at the moment.
  9. Last of a 2009 Siglo III cab. This one was past its peak for me, but a pleasant smoke nonetheless. Grass and hay with notes of honey and vanilla.
  10. Welcome. Still have travels to Cuba and a visit to a brick and mortar on the bucket list.
  11. I too enjoyed the Padron Anniversary series and Ashton VSG were another. I still think there are some wonderful NCs, but my advice as an admittedly inexperienced guide would be this; some of my favorite CC are much more moderate in strength but more complex and/or definitive in flavors. One of the best parts of CCs is the journey in trying different brands and sizes. To start, I'm a fan of going with a few different petite coronas, not a particularly a costly entry point and you can get some very different strengths and flavor profiles. If you don't want to do a full sampler of a particular
  12. I can relate to some of the posts about not having a permanent top five. Seasonal changes influence this in part but right now these seem to be amongst those I enjoy more frequently. BPC Siglo I Monte 2 Monte Edmundo R&J Short or Wide Churchill
