What’s your oldest cigar in your collection?


Recommended Posts

I have a box of Macanudo with jade wrappers still in plastic wrap.  Made in Jamaica, so they’re prior to Y2K.  Seem to me they’re a panatella or similar.   They’re skinnies for sure.   I know right where they are in the humidor too, which is odd because so much gets lost in those cabinets....

I don’t remember where I got them or why I have them.  

?

I have a 50 cab of 2002 Partagas coronas that I bought as aged stock here a few years ago and they are about half smoked.  They are very mellow and sublime and I find them very enjoyable.

A box of “pre 1985 “ monte 4s. I’ve only had a few and they are terrible. The strongest cigar I’ve smoked. Not sure what to make of them. Is it normal for a cigar that old to be unbearably bitter? I bought them from a legitamite lcdh. Was a sort of impulse buy when I first started buying boxes 

Can you define "strong"?  Is that in relation to the bitter taste you discuss, or do they also have a lot of power (i.e. nicotine)?

1999 Punch Churchills.  Purchased 4 from a LCDH about a year ago.  Smoked one recently and was surprised at how much flavor and nicotine it possesed.  I felt like i needed to lay down after that one!

Got what I think is an 1980s Davidoff no.2. Partagas 898 1980. And a box of 9 Los Statos Selectos from the 70s. Smoked one which had that nice mellow sweetness, but was quite mild.

Smoked a 1971 RyJ Coronas last month. Also was pleasant, mellow, sweet.

Two Sancho Panza Sanchos from 1999 in perfect condition - not a single crack or blemish. Brought from St James 1A - the now unfortunately closed Dunhill store in London. They used to have a few vintage options which were very reasonably priced by UK standards.

They are earmarked. One for when I finally buy my first house (almost through the laborious process now!) and another for after I get married next year.

I had about half a box of these what I’m guessing were 1950’s Belindas scored at a local country auction for $2!  I slowly brought them back to life, and smoked and shared them over about a 5 year period.  
 

This is the last one I smoked last New Years and sadly the oldest in my humidor now is a 1999 5 pack of RyJ PCs.
