  1. Hey guys, hope everyone’s well! Recently just purchased a box of RyJ Churchill Añejados and wanted some opinions on if it’s genuine or fake. Everything seems to check out honestly but what got to me thinking was that the date on the box (SCO E000) I know this line is supposed to be aged at least 10 years but if I’m not mistaken does the code mean these would be around 20 years aged? And from there you know I started to overthink everything lol thank you very much and cheers?
  2. This is my first review in a long time, so bear with me. I got this LGC Tainos back in 2008 as a single from an online retailer. It has been in my wineador all these years. Prelight, this cigar had a nice shiny wrapper with some slight tooth. I dryboxed it for a day in my 3-cigar leather pouch. After a punch cut, the draw was perfect with prelight aromas of tea and floral notes. I lit the cigar with a table lamp. The initial flavors were tea and floral notes which is especially pleasant on a retrohale. These flavors were very light and pleasant for the first half of the cigar.
  3. I'm going away on vacation in a couple of weeks, and I wanted to bring a big cigar with me to smoke on my last night at the resort. I have smoked the RyJ Churchill and thought it was just ok. I have smoked the HUSW and thought it was sublime. However this is the extent of my experience with Churchills and Double Coronas. So, my question to you FOH community, is which of the BIG BOYS would you reach for first? To level the playing field, let's say current regular production and nothing with more than 2 years of box age.
  4. Montecristo Churchills Añejados Brand: Montecristo Commercial name: Churchills Factory name: Julieta Nº2 Dimensions: 47 ring gauge (18.65 mm) x 178 mm long Paired with a nice Cafe Latte con Legendario Anjeo Punch Cut Aroma at Cold faint woodsy barnyard aroma Cold draw: Smooth draw light woody cacoa. First light: Even light a mild hint of cacoa and coffee, nutmeg and light oak wood. Reminiscent of an aged Monte especial. First third: Getting that delicate sweet twang that we search for in a good montecristo. Nutmeg/cacao/coffee and a slight vanilla bean flavou
  5. @Mattb82's recent topic on Petit Coronas got me thinking about longer cigars, especially in consideration of @earthson's reply in that topic. Whilst I don't mind the ring gauge (47 rg on a Churchill, 49rg on a Double Corona) I don't seem to smoke enough of these, I always seem to reach for the shorter and standard ring gauge cigars by preference. Do you do the same? Give me 2 hours to enjoy a cigar and I find I'll nearly always try to fit a Minuto/Perla or Petit Corona in there! So let's have a look at current regular production of Double Coronas and Churchills... What cigar f
  6. Stats: 7” x 47 Vitola: Julieta #2 Initial Thoughts: Like most of the big Cuban cigars that I’ve had, the BCG feels light in the hand. It lacks that dense, meaty feel I’m accustomed to from similarly-sized Nicaraguan cigars. This isn’t a bad thing. The wrapper is a golden, medium brown. Plenty of small veins, and the cigar is quite toothy. Very slightly oily. Not a great looking wrapper, but it’s not particularly dull or bad-looking either. 1st 3rd: Perfect draw, with just a touch of resistance. The initial flavor impressions are salt, baking spices. Body
  7. Date: August 5, 2016, 7:20pm Cigar: Punch Monarca, Habana, Cuba Format: Julieta No. 2 (Churchill) Code: PUL NOV01 Pairing: Martini & Rossi Rosso (Torino, Italy) Preserved in aluminium tubes, the Punch Monarca is a churchill sized cigar at 7 x 47. The inscription on the tube states "This cigar has been packed in a sealed container to assure the natural Havana aroma and freshness of the cigar when smoked." The wrapper looks like leather, milk chocolate colored, with visible seams and an evenly applied cap. There are a few small veins, and one medium vein
  8. Jun 16 2016 Romeo y Julieta Reserva Cosecha 2008 (Churchill) Vitals: Vitola: Churchill Measurements: 7inches * 48RG A 2012/13 release using tobacco from the 2008 harvest. So technically a 5 year old cigar. The major distinction being the leaves used were aged, not the finished cigars themselves. I can only assume that the filler, binder and wrapper are all from the same year as well. (2008) Pre-Light Notes: Appearance: Milk chocolate wrapper, slight grain on hte wrapper. Small veins, nice roll Aroma at cold:
  9. Planning to go with our host for the first time and need some guidance in terms of flavour/complexity bang for your buck. I’ve looked around in threads and have found some info on DC’s and Churchill’s but I specifically would like see the opinion of many and form my decision from there, on what is smoking well now. Looking to get one box of DC’s and one box of Churchill’s and the following are my choices. I have tried and have Punch DC’s (love them) so I have not included it and the 50 cab SLR DC’s are not in my budget. I have already tried the HdM and the SLR and I equally love both as well.
