03 was a great year for DD. 

Agree wholeheartedly. 

from 2003,  Des Dieux,  Winston, Saint Luis Rey Double Corona, Esplendidos and Serie du Connaisseur No. 1/2/3 hold fond memories and are always on my radar.

The Des Dieux flavour profile is something that we have tried to emulate in one of the new 2020 Nudie releases. 

Unfortunately I have never had a DD. Fortunately we have the Nudies.

Do you expect a period of aging before achieving the DD profile? Or should they be ready to go after a rest?

I have a panel of testers (who know DD) ready to go. They will let you know in about 3 weeks time :cigar:

I finished my cab of '03 Des Dieux earlier than my '03 cab of Punch Super Selection No. 1. Unfortunately, I have been forced to open the first of three '08 Des Dieux SLB's. These have aged even worse than the '03s. The only way to describe them is: "a bonfire of exotic woods". Only Ken would find these memorable.

After I wrote that I realized 03 was a great year overall. Some exceptional cigars made that year including those you mentioned. The last great Punch Punch I had until a few years ago had been 03s. Lots of great Cohiba, RyJ Ex 4 cabs, Small Partagas. The last gasp of air from the late 90s/early 2000s.

Are the Nudie's released on 24:24? I haven't seen them at all, Did I just miss these? DD is one of my absolute favorites. I had to stop myself from bidding at one point on that cab of 03 but damn it was difficult. 

A few months away yet. 

Look out around September. I will give plenty of notice.

I also recently finished a box of 03 El Morro that were outstanding ?

I have a very interesting story behind these...was lucky enough to score a cab on the nightly sale back in 2012 or so...received 25 shortly after( FOH was splitting up 50 cabs back then)...didn't receive the second 25 until 5 years later!! Lost in the mail somehow!??! After a 6 month nap in the humidor they still smoked like a dream...somehow didn't lose any flavor. Still have 8 left.
