Always a little sad to see them go in a fifty as well. Glad they delivered nice memories. Feel you're pain RA I have one left as well 😙😢

Mate, I hear you. I'm just about there with my one and only 50 cab of Bolivar Simones RE '07. TEB cab.

They were legendary when I got them. They are legendary now. Delicious cigars every time. Down to my last few.....they will be treasured.

Only being in the game since 2004, I haven’t had to have too many of these moments.

2011 PLM code H. Upmann Connie No. 1s stick out the most to me

Oh man those Tainos are great. I bought two boxes, still have one. Afraid to smoke them because that means they will be truly gone!

It's a hollow feeling, isn't it? On the other hand, if some Habanos distributor came up with an idea to bring these out in a Regional Edition, like PCC did with the El Rey del Mundo Tainos for Taiwan recently, would you be 'all over it'? I know I would! 😄

Hi all

Whilst this is not a lost cab or anything like that, it is the last of its kind  for me at least,I know there are probably some still lurking in humidors around the world ,this is one of Robs first customs from circa 2008 I think .

it was originally called the shaggy then morphed  into the ‘Tampa’ in tribute to one of the founding moderators and members here ,in memory of ‘Chuck aka Tampa ‘

so by my reckoning it must be 12 years old 

Even after 12 years there is still an oily sheen to it ,quiet surprising really,it has a really good feel in the hand 

 

The First third 

started off quiet mild with elements of milk chocolate and a some what mild shortbread sort of taste .burn and draw excellent 

Second third 

the delicate opening has been replace by a darker core of dark chocolate/espresso wine the milk chocolate receding to the fringes .

Final third 

body is still what I would describe to me at least as medium bodied  the core flavours still abound ,but now with hints of exotic wood and Liquorice and something I wasn’t expecting a subtle wash of middle eastern style spices ,very nice and actually compliment the liquorice .

here are some pics ,it was nice to see that after all this time it continued to shine ,if this was only the case with all Cubans....003755A5-A7BC-47A4-A025-9FD7545F4EEB.jpeg.26d42e7def04c32046a234dd3eb7a9ab.jpeg550DD810-0ED3-4FE4-A05F-5CECC7E00D5B.jpeg.2eaa1a87e4bc15f4738ae67e6792e20c.jpeg7BC41962-2EA4-4E23-81A9-97728A39943C.jpeg.11e14564d1fc52db7d787df75dd78f63.jpeg8FCF4A40-796D-4D74-A2B2-14A12F3658C8.jpeg.8b1efef9deeaa06ae3ac522c3398dc73.jpeg60BB2204-45DF-4CD2-909A-31896BB2A3A1.jpeg.c23d5aa9a2857a5607f5a8cc77d11b56.jpegC442D1CE-2DA2-41EE-8938-0E2A0B0574C2.jpeg.40b4cc391b1dba5a3196e773cb543e1d.jpeg
