So it seems the general consensus is that CCs like the Monte 2 require some patience to get the best experience. 

With that being said, what’s the best bet for a good, young smoke to bide your time while those that need a long rest are in hiberanation?

I like the experience of smoking my cigars at all ‘life stages’. I think all benefit from age. 

 

The PLPC and RASS are go-to smokes for me. I love both aged and young.  The PLPC transforms with 5years of age but I like the mongrel taste of them when young just as much

I like to smoke PLPC from young to a couple of years old. It's interesting to see them evolve to something totally different, I also enjoy fresh PSD4, JL#2, HUHC and RASCC.

I'd say Partagas Shorts is on the top of my list.

Most smaller formats seem to require less age so if you are really stressing for a Monte, the #5 with a year or so on it is more than fine.

I’ve had really good luck with Partagas young and old.  Partagas Shorts and Serie D4, nearly identical to me in all but size, are good examples.  

I had a young Juan Lopez 2 recently and was really impressed.  Romeo y Julieta WC I’ve only had young and that’s one of my favorites of any marca.

I can tell you which marcas need absolutely no less than 3 years and ideally 5 years of age:  Bolivar, Por Larranaga, Montecristo.  I’ve just not enjoyed them young at all.  In fact I had a two year old PL Picadores yesterday and it was way too overpowering that I got none of the typical caramel flavor.  It was a huge disappointment!

I don't smoke enough of current production to make that call. I will say I've been really enjoying recent production Diplomaticos No.2. Best option is to get a sampler and see what you like for freshies. Rob has some killer ones.

RASS, PSD4s, and RyJ Short Churchills are pretty solid whether old or young.

I find R&J Short Churchills, HDM Epi 2, and Robaina Famosos all smoke well young.

How young is young?  I like CC that is few months of box code.  Really punchy taste is good and harder to find than an aged cigar for me.

PSD4, RASS & JL2 seems good to go after acclimatization period. I smoke them young & old tho :D

I love Regios fresh.  There is a vibrant youth that I fancy.

This exactly. Will add the only Cohiba I like young (less than 3 years) is Siglo 2 and sometimes CCE although they both benefit greatly from aging.
