What a blast. Very humbling. I was pretty confident in what numbers 4 and 5 were not, and I was dead wrong. But it looks like many others made the same guesses I did. I'll be happy with 1 for 5 on my maiden voyage.

Went 1/4 on #4 then threw myself off with #5 - completely forgot about coro as that's what I guessed (wrongly) for #2 so for some reason I mistakenly exposed it in my head! Thinking back the flavor profile was spot on

I have only been smoking CC for about 1 1/2 years and I am pretty impressed I went 2 out of 5.   I will say that Monte #2 is one of my favorite cigars and I hope to never get another example like #4 and that every Coro I smoke is exactly like #5.

So odd I was certain #2 was the Coro and #5 tasted more like the D4 lol. Ah well I'm happy with 2 out of 5. Thanks for putting this on, was lots of fun!

Well, #2 and #4 were two of the worst sticks I’ve ever smoked - tossed them after 15-20 minutes. Good to know they were Party Serie D4 and Monty 2, which had been perhaps my least favorite two sticks in the entire Habanos portfolio...yuck. Of course I didn’t guess either of them!

I want to thank you guys for putting this on I know it takes a bit of effort but it definitely was a very interesting fun contest.   I imagine El Presidente has fun picking cigars that he knows will throw us off.   Like a really light wrapper.

Well, I didn't get a damn one right.  But this was really fun and I feel like I learned a lot.  Thanks to FOH for putting it on, and congrats to the winners.  Looking forward to next year!

Wow, amazing... Can't believe that was a CORO. No way. LOL.

Fun contest regardless! Thanks FOH and congratulations to the 3 winners!

Great entertainment, which is organized by FOH. Thanks to Rob, who chose the most interesting samples all year! Thanks to the beautiful ladies who prepared cigars and processed our letters! Thanks to everyone who commented on cigars, it was fun!

I liked all the cigars and enjoyed them. Great idea, I look forward to the next one...

My goodness. That was the mildest Montecristo I've ever smoked in 23 years of smoking CCs. No trace of a Monte profile. I got sourdough and paprika. If it had been stronger I'd have gone PSP2 but I guessed Dip 2 and was about 90% sure about it.

And CoRo? Wow. Had zero Cohiba DNA. Black coffee start? I had it as a JLS2 until it got mild and a little cherry came in and I thought RyJ Short Churchills. 

And #3 a BPC...another wow. Never had a BPC that had a Cohiba profile.

I forgot to comment my bets on numbers 4 and 5:

About #4

The strong spicy confectionery taste inclined me to Diplomatico. I know that Diplo and Monte are related brands, but from a dark wrapper I would expect DNA Montecristo and I did not feel it. On Saturday smoked Edmundo ABO Dic 18 and it was a very similar profile, but the choice was already made.

About #5

Full body and full strenght - only Bolivar or Cohiba. The taste was closer to Cohiba Robusto. Also the triple cap was too beautiful

So my completely overfilled and bursting wrapper # 5 was a CoRo ... some kind of quality control there. I guessed Juan Lopez, because it had to be a value brand based on the aesthetic. Shame on me, and whomever selected that cigar off the table to become a Cohiba. ?
