4) Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo des Dieux 2003 (thanks @Duxnutz)

Again I must thank and acknowledge Adam for gifting me this brilliant cigar. Whatever you've heard about this fabled vitola (fabled on account that no-one has seen one produced for about 2 or 3 years), well, it's true. They are that superb. 5 out of 5 here for simply a sublime smoking experience!

No bands on '03 du Dieux, or a couple years after that.

NC Sunday. Viaje Juntos. Not worth the price, at least not fitting me flavor wise. Will have to balance it out with a CC tomorrow morning.

Three cigar day for me. Cold but sunny here in the NE. Started with an ok Sig VI, followed with a great 2011 CoRo, and finished with a custom by Alex. The custom was by far the best.

Winds about 50 km/hr here at my place in Washington. Cigar is holding up nicely and tastes more than fine. Going to put some fish on it grill in a few.

Enjoying an Oct '14 PIcador on a warm Sunday afternoon.

That's my "go to" beverage most of the time since my wife stocks them like the apocalypse is at hand. :)

True when they came in Slide Lid Boxes of 50, but when they came in Cardboard packs of 5, they came with bands.

Not a packaging I've ever seen. Thanks ! Did they always have bands in the petacas ?

Some special Cigars I've had lately (during my vacation)...


@Duxnutz

 

2) La Flor de Cano Grandiosos Regional Edition 2013 ROL Oct 13 (Thanks @golfdude888)

Remember when these came out what big sellers they were? Is that 4 or 5 years ago now? My how time flies! I know El Pres has had these 10-count boxes up last year, and I think they were some of the last he had in stock. If you've picked these up, kudos to you. Cheers Steve for letting me try this one too...a nice change-of-pace with floral and citrus notes interspersed with a very light cocoa edge.

I think prior to 2006 when the des Dieux where streamlined into banded 25-count Slide Lid Boxes you could get them in 5-count Cardboard packaging and they were banded, usually at Duty Free places I believe (although honestly I am speculating here). I got gifted this by @Duxnutz and as he is a pilot, I wouldn't be surprised if he picked this vitola up that way via his travels years ago.

...and you can even distinguish them by the type of the band.

Rather tasty Monte 5 in glorious, if cold, sunshine. Waiting on hire equipment so I can actually get some work done. Could be worse, I suppose...fb798258c6abb7b205457b7c4e7f3614.jpg

Another meeting at the Davidoff lounge in Stuttgart.

My first Boli Tesoro RE 5ta Avenida. Started good, then turned very bitter and then recovered. Way too young and too wet. My friend smoked one that tunneled badly.

Then an outstanding LGC MdO #1 from 2002.

Finally an unknown and forgettable LFD.
