Well helllooo beautiful 🤩🤩🤩

This @FrancisK7 is a good day. In fact it’s a damn good day. Some cabs I’ve been on the hunt for a while for. The SLR smell...orgasmic

H.Upmann is my favorite marca and these look amazing. The smell is intoxicating too. I will put these away for 4 years and I am sure they will smoke incredible!!!  :cigar::cigar::cigar:


If I can suggest putting your slightly off track of your 4 yr plan..those PSPs were incredible right now

@Gamehawker I agree here.  The dark wrapper no 2s are so good right now.  They have a nice rich flavor.  Let them rest for 60-90 and do yourself a favor and try a couple before locking them down for years (maybe)

I respectfully disagree with you guys. 

I just had my last cigar from a box of H.Upmann No. 2 “LUB JUL 14” (I luckily have another full box with the same box code) and it was incredible. It was the best cigar I have smoked in the last year. I did not even start smoking from that box until they had at least 4 years of age on them.

So I know what I like and therefore I will not be touching my two boxes of these (I had gotten another box recently from FOH with the same box code) 😀.  If I am going to smoke an H.Upmann No. 2, I will smoke one from my box of 2014s or I also have a couple of boxes from “BRE NOV 17” & “BRE NOV 18” too. :cigar::cigar: :cigar:

Trinidad La Trova - BSM DIC 20 
Got 1 cracked head, hopefully PerfecRepair Glue does the trick.


On a 3-4 hundred dollar box of cigars, you should be looking for a credit for a cracked stick …just my opinion

I've been wanting to try a party 898 but can't seem to get my hands on them. Are they anything close to a lucy?

I’ll probably muck the answer up, given my simplistic good/not good palate, but yes, I think they are close, but also different enough to not be the same at all. Both have typical Partagas trademark tastes, but 898 seems to be the most pungent of the Partagas line, it has more Cuban twang than nearly every other current production stick IMO. Lusi is a more refined Party, whereas 898 is serious barnyard Cuban.

Anyone else - feel free to add to this.

x2. That’s been my experience as well. The complexity of a Lusi but with more attitude.

Nice! Have a ULA-JUL-15 BPC box myself, although it is nowhere near as pretty as those! 7/15 is my birthday so I try and grab any boxes I can with that code.  Finished a ULA-JUN-15 box not too long ago and it was delightful.

And these two amazing deliveries 🚚 came in as bombs 💣 from some overly generous BOTL; some gorgeous stuff here 

Damn nice scores here B-Rad! Fire CC's and some insane NC's there!

The holy grail of Partagas reg-prod, IMHO 🌟

 

1000% agree with you on this and that MAR Laguito code for the E2's has been incredible.

New kids on the block, can’t wait to try after a rest. PL Galanes RAT NOV 20. 

Definitely would love to hear some tasting notes when you get around to smoking one.  Enjoy!
