An RE Friday with @Nate Chu C&C for a Saturday morning with this Sir Winston from 03. Today is going to be great if this cigar is anything to judge it by. What a super smooth star

First cigar of the year.

C&C ‘14 especiales. Fantastic start to the day C&C with a Monte 4 C&C time today with a Perla picked up from 24:24

Really? What is this sorcery?
Warped la colmena. I've been on an NC kick recently. This was my first warped, a single from my local store. Crazy good, but not sure I'd buy a box. They are like 13-15$ each, and there's a lot of great CC at that price point.

Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo du Prince, SOM JUN16.

Thank you @JohnS for the very kind gift! I am a big fan of the Des Dieux, but I had never tried this one.
I was never likely to either, proving yet again what a great bunch of guys the Sydney boys are!
Now that they are discontinued, I am both very glad and a little sad that I did try it!

To repeat what you said when you last reviewed this same cigar John, I am also blown away by this one.

Enjoyed in the wee small hours right now with coffee. Glorious combination.
Colorado maduro oily wrapper, very firm, seamless. Perfect construction! Aroma at cold of spicy cedar and leather. If only Cuba could do this all the time!

Perfect Cuban draw, slightly firm and a little resistive, just the way I like it.
Creamy, slightly woody texture. I can taste the classic Le Hoyo DNA in this.
Sweet spices, hints of vanilla bean, with a slightly woody sweet cedar spine. Bakers cocoa and sweet baking spices intensifying throughout. Started medium, intensifying to a little over medium towards the end. Full flavoured throughout. Glorious aroma on the smoke. What a magnificent cigar. Easily one of the best petit corona sized CC's I have ever smoked. How could HSA possibly have thought of discontinuing these? Damn I love skinnies! Thank you again so much John for giving me the opportunity to try this now sadly discontinued cigar!

Nubbed it!

Ian, what an amazing review. Of course it's my pleasure to share, but you've made me do a "180" in my thinking on these. I'm so tempted to reach for one at the bottom of my humidor to see how they are travelling, after all, they've just hit the two-and-a-half year mark! My, how time flies! ?

Getting some snow in north central PA today. Smoking a delightful Connie #1 from an August 2017 box. 

Fantastic image there! ?

That may be an ugly cigar but the scenery looks pretty good to me!

Thanks - just a foggy, chilly day up on the mountain. She was ugly but was about as tasty as a NC gets - lots of chocolate Raisenetts. The age muted all of the Opus X pepper and jalapeno.

It really was that good. I highly recommend you dig one out and revisit John! Surprised the life out of me that a Le Hoyo could be so good at just 2 1/2 years of age. I can only imagine how good these are going to be at the 5 or even 8 year mark, because it has the legs ?

2007 Opus X xXx - one ugly cigar with a pretty band

The xxx is a belicoso, so I don't think that is one. It's probably the ugliest opus I've ever seen haha. Hopefully it smoked better than it looked.

It was a xxx, probably the angle after cutting. Horrendous looking but damn tasty for NC.

Apologies to hear about the house deal falling through for you. I am yet to venture on the house buying journey. Great cigar choice to pick up your spirits!

Thanks fella!
