...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!

La China Distinguidos gifted to me by a friend from the Partagas LCDH opening in 1998

Been sitting on this one for many, many years....

Fantastic cigar. Still not even halfway through over an hour in. Rich, earthy, bean notes. Medium body and strength. 20+ years and it is holding its own!

 

This is incredible.  I met her last year at the Partagas LCDH and was blown away by her blends.  My brother and I sat in the back room enjoying one of her customs.  Not sure what she called it but it was a Lonsdale size and couldn't have been more perfect with a mid morning coffee.  Well done here sir.

Old Monte No2 with no embossing. Checked out the Cuban cigars website, says 03-06. But I was told it was from an 08 box.

I remember that trip and the cigars. Awesome!
Good to see you around my friend!
 

I agree Mike, it wasn’t embossed and was a lighter brown too, so I am leaning toward the older band, which that site said 03-06ish.

There's a familiar face! I don't think I've seen you since 2016!

Is that a 2017 or 2019 variety?  I've got a box of 2019 in resting mode and would love to hear how they are smoking.  I'm keep chomping at the bit to break one out but I want to make sure it's been acclimated properly.

This one is OR, 2017 and it smoked well, I did a review of it for the weekend reviews. I did feel it still needs some more time to balance out. I have never had the redux 19 release so I cannot comment on that. If you have a box, try one, then you can see if it is to your liking.

Thank you.  Yep, I'll give one a go after it's had 90-120 down in tupperdore.

You're killing me, Mike.  True crisis preparedness.  While the rest of us are throwing haymakers for toilet paper, apparently you've been planning to ride out a zombie apocalypse for quite a while.    

Yes, been stocking up since the late '90s.
