...to smoke those cigars you've kept your hands off of for months or years. Too special. Considering the current state of affairs I am a bit concerned if something drastic happens I may never get

Funny you mention this topic. A couple of months ago I decided I was done buying LE and RE so I started smoking through them every day and have not touched any regular production in a couple of months

Finally broke down and cracked my last box of the Grandes de España, this box from 2005. Glad I did, they're really good!

I have seen two online references to OSU EO00 (one Partagas SDC3, and one box of LGCMD1). So it might be exactly as you say.

I guess in that case it would be good to check if the bands are pre 2002, or post 2002:

The band changed the alignment of "de" and "y'

From: partagas-standard-band-a-jpg

To:

partagas-standard-band-a---text-alignmen

According to CCW. Thanks for maintaining such a wonderful resource!

Edit: If I were to guess I would guess that these are post c2005 (and pre 2010) banded cigars possibly in a 1999 box.

My band is post c2005. Not sure where the mix up happened as I don’t know where the guy I acquired it from got it. I like to think it was just an honest mistake. Again, not sure I care all that much. I thoroughly enjoyed the cigar and to be honest that is what matters most to me. It’s also a good lesson for me on how I continue to acquire vintage cigars in the future....

@maverickdrinker’s blog post this week inspired me to dig one of these out to enjoy with the 3rd round of The Masters. 

2007 Edicion Regional Medio Oriente Bolivar Double Corona

The first third was a bit of a disappointment with a serious lack of smoke production. Then it opened up and became such a beautiful experience. The final third was out of this world. This cigar reminds me why I love Bolivar so much. Grateful I have a couple of these left.

Connie 1 from my anniversary box (NOV 98), just celebrated 22 years with the woman of my dreams. 

Wonderful smoke, started out shortbread, moved to vanilla bean, ended up cola. The Connie 1 is so underrated.
