To say I am looking forward to this cigar would be an understatement. My favorite Marca and a great size to boot. I know the "Monte 80th" fever is in full pitch right now, but has anybody heard anything about this cigar since it was announced? I wouldn't be surprised if this cigar never showed, or if it does, in very low quantities. Considering the yearlong+ delay for the "2015" Monte 80th and the majority of folks who tasted both stating that the current release cigars are very different in flavor than the pre release cigars. I'm not sure where the Tobacco for the 16's is going to come from. The wrapper leaves are just about the same size (165mm vs 167mm) and they clearly had issues getting enough together for the 80ths. Maybe I am just being pessimistic, if I prepare myself for the worst case I can only be happily surprised if they are released. Right? Best case scenario they release them on the island early November to coincide with my trip.
For you Ken! So what would it take for me to intentionally smoke a lousy cigar? Well, I had it and it is just taking room. I have a skull full of mush, and some wanker in Oz suggested that I smoke it and tell you all about it!!! The offer from the wanker included a potential bribe! Now onto the cigar. Appearance: lousy Finish: lousy Quality of construction: lousy Aroma: okay, it has been in the company of great cigars! Taste, first third: lousy Taste, second third: only slightly better than lousy Taste, last third: don't hold your breath! -the Pig
I managed to snag one of these "obscene" monsters. For comparison, I lined it up against the BHK56 and Cohiba 1966 EL 2011 Here they are in line. A look at the foot Part 1 A look at the foot Part 2 I didn't notice a huge difference in the RG between the Supremo and BHK. The BHK56 did seem a bit puffy to me at the foot. Either that, or the 2RG difference isn't easy to make it.
