I felt the same way about Upmann, tried most all you mention (all young) and they were just ho hum.  Then I tried a HUHC with nearly 4 years on it, and I thought wow that's good.  So I acquired a few Connie 1 with three years on them, and yep, they were spectacular.  So I ordered a cab and put it away.  And now that I "get" the profile, I've had a couple young Connie 1 and enjoy them more.

Great advice.  I have some Connie 1s at 2 years just received so letting them rest a few weeks before sampling.  I’m all for being patient with a marca if it will deliver down the road.  I’ll find some aged ones and get a taste of the potential.  Thank you.

Not many wrappers as beautiful as a VR when it's really "on".

JLPC 14, seems I smoke one of these about every 4 months and they never get any better. Love the Marca, love the size, but this cigar is no bueno.

Perhaps it may be time to put them aside for a longer rest? I've had cigars I considered to be pedestrian at best get buried and rediscovered years later as a good smoke. Only time will tell...

Same here and it could, you’re right. 5+years on tho and I get no sense it’s going anywhere. It tastes like all Ligero and volado -unbalanced.

I have a couple boxes from 2016...have only opened one....but they've all been really bland. So many people love these....maybe I got a bad batch.
