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

From last night. Not Pictured: BRE Connie 1.. Great flavors.  Original Release Picadores: ULE NOV-14..  Flawless  RAT NOV-19 Dip 2. From 24:24 Not as salty as the dark wrappers. 

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

MSU SEP 18 QdO Coronos Claro Picked up a couple of boxes and they been in my humidor a month. I don’t normally smoke something that soon but I have not had one of these before so pulled one out.

Not quite sure what to make of it. Seemed a bit harsh, not a lot of flavor but it finished well. It will definitely be a while before I have another and hopefully this is t representative of what they will be.

I find that the QdO Coronas Claro start off in a bit of a sick period when fresh. Usually after 2 years they get alot better and are ideal at the 5 year mark. Even beyond the 5 year mark they are good.@DirtyHarry smoked a 2007 QdO Coronas which was gifted by @Fuzzand he said it was amazing!

So rest them up and they will deliver!!

Another stunning May 18 UEB Monte 4. The lighter wrapper psp Monte is just sublime. Better than the box of 2014 psp dark wrapper Monte 1’s I have. This one is all citrus, chocolate and biscuit. The entire box have all been 92-93 pointers...probably my top 3 favorite boxes out of 30 I have going right now.

Couldnt agree more. The UEB MAY 18 Montecristo number 4 has been amazing. I smoked a whole box and all hit the mark. Great code!

How would you describe the Hdm Palmas Extra? 

I would say it’s pretty consistent of the Hoyo Marca. Light cream, nuts, a pretty good value for a shorter type Smoke. Good 45 minutes; if you like the Epi 1 or 2 it’s similar in profile

Smoked a Rott QDO CC yesterday,   My first of the newly banded cigars.   I have two old boxes sleeping (wish i had more).  The cigar was very interesting.   I've only ever smoked QDOCC with 2-4 years on them.   This was a bit of a revelation.   Really enjoyed the cigars.   It had a lot of Punch elements going on.  Juicyfruit gum, cloves, pencil shavings etc etc.  it also had a little PLMC like a mix of burnt caramel, and new car leather.    There was a glimpse of the cream, and toasted oat porridge to come, but this cigar was all over the shop (in a good way).   I hope they do calm down, as the QDOCC of 2015-26 are close to my perfect cigar.   

To me the apex or zenith of where you want a QDOCC to be, is when it's like creamy toasted oat porridge, resinous cedar, orange zest, anise etc. when they are like that, the leave Cohiba and Trinidad in the dust.

Hats off to @El Presidente for picking out Brioche,  I great addition as to how to accurately pick these cigars, and very fitting to their French heritage

That is barely enough bacon for me.

no amount of orange segments would offset my bacon/french toast consumption!!  If I had this kind of stuff prepared for me, i'd be dead within a year
