I will have to try these again, as I generally love PL flavors. The flavor of the last Montecarlo I smoked was overly bitter, however: both in the smoke and on the lips & tongue. Best way I can describe is the bitter flavor of milkweed, or green plant latex. I had purchased at a B&M in Paris but didn’t get the box code or dates, so it may have been too young. Interestingly, I have had a similar experience with the Picadores, but the bitterness there was not nearly as harsh as in the Montecarlo.

4-5 years and I will smoke right through a box of PLMC. One of the best value smokes, in my opinion. They'll last me 1hr20-1hr30. They did get slight bitterness when I tried to smoke one in 45 mins, if that gives you any idea.

Right on. I’ll be sure to ‘take ‘er easy’ on the next PLMC I smoke. ;)

Trinidad Reyes petite corona. First time trying this format. Pleasantly surprised. Great draw and burn. Good amount of smoke and very creamy flavor with a hint of sweetness—maybe caramel. Tried them on 24:24. Will be buying more.

Trinidad’s have taken Cohibas place as my favorite brand. Try the Colonials or the La Trova... of course the Vigia. There isn’t a bad cigar in their lineup. The Trova is my absolute favorite cigar. There is but two flaws and they’re big ones. Price and availability.

Found this random Ramon allones in my humidor, hidden in the back. I haven't a clue what it is, wasn't anything special. So I followed it up with a HDM epi 2. I really really enjoy those #2s.

Looks like a Small Club Coronas.

Funny I actually wanted to try one, they seemed like a good price. Have you ever had one? I wasn't too fond of it. Wondering if I should give it a second go.

Connie A to finish off the day. Down to my last one, trying to decide between another box of these or to try the La Fuerza. Any thoughts on the Fuerza?cce3bbcb528a2dc15d47d2cfed725114.jpg

I would stick with the connie a. I just never get the pancakes and molasses flavors myself. The connie a fits my palate better.

I prefer the RASS and the Superiores. I like minutos but just don’t smoke or buy them that often. If you like that size cigar the Partagas Shorts are quite good.

San Cristóbal de la Habana El Príncipe TOS May 2016

This was a nice way to spend a week night, with an old favourite of mine. Big on molasses and cocoa and lighter on coffee and spice, this was a little sweeter than normal but most satisfactory nonetheless!

I had a TOS box of El Principe too, so good.  I understand it's one of your favorites. Has become one of mine as well.
