...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!

@Habana Mike just received a couple of the 2004 selección robusto cases this week and the cedar aroma was very prominent. Excited to give them a try. 

Enjoy! Some unique vitolas in these.

This afternoon we had a crazy 15 minute thunder/lighting/rain/hail storm down here in south Florida. 

It got us too about 90 mins south of you guys. No hail here though, but the wind the rain was impressive.

I can vouch that it was pretty bad in between the two of you (Delray). Hoping we can all catch up and smoke one someday soon-ish

We knew bad weather was coming but this thing came out of nowhere with force. That'd be great when all this cools down.

Impressive is right. It was minimally reminiscent of some hurricane winds.  Somewhat enjoyable to watch roll through and relax to.

The '06 was surprisingly more potent, in spice, than what I expected. Below are part of my notes from both cigars from my Cuban Cigar Website smoking diary...

Cohiba Siglo VI ARG Jun 2015

This Cohiba Siglo VI, at a few months short of 5 years, had some lovely refined grass/hay notes, honey sweetness and butter notes from the outset. It was remarkably easy to retrohale through the nose. As the cigar proceeded it developed some lemon citrus and spice. Into the last third it picked up in intensity and was quite spicy through the retrohale, which is quite normal.

So overall; yes, this was a quality cigar. It goes without saying that it should be too, especially with the premium pricing these days!

Cohiba Siglo VI 2006

This 2006 Siglo VI started off quite potent in its flavours. It was also the same through the retrohale. There was quite a lot of spice, much more than the 2015 Siglo VI. The construction was ideal however, each ash-length was over an inch and the ash colour on this cigar was a beautiful white-grey throughout.

The flavours were mainly refined grass/hay and spice through to the middle third. About half-way through the middle third I ashed and noticed some leaves bunched in the middle. I figured that the great plumes of smoke, spice and subsequent heaviness on my palate was a result of this. I figured that the cigar would settle after this point (and I was correct).

Towards the end of the middle third and into the final third of the cigar, I picked up some more honey sweetness, lemon citrus and a touch of vanilla bean. I just wished that the whole cigar was milder and settled like it was towards the back half.

Interesting! Thanks for the notes on them
