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

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

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.

I spent a few days there mountain biking...right about 11 years ago. Amazing experience. 

There’s definitely something magical about that area.  I’ve been there 3 times, but always just passing through and on day trips.   I keep telling myself that one of these days I’ll get a hotel room and stay for a few days.

Hoyo epi 1

Some fruit maybe raspberry @Kaptain Karl.

With wood and cream. But not the good quality cream but the kind of fake/ersatz cream in Fonsecas or Palmas Extra (lacked the creamy texture/mouth feel). Probably needs more aging. Was heavyweight and didn't use perfecdraw until quite late so draw was too tight. I'm going to smoke another one and let the rest sit for a while.

Completely agree with you with the cream. That flavor was very milk like instead of heavy cream. Mine have the darkest wrappers I’ve seen on a Epicure 1, which is why I think the first 2 I smoked were so heavy on that fantastic cocoa/berry profile. The last one I smoked had a bit lighter of a wrapper and consequently had far less cocoa/berry. Part of me wants to age these for 5 more years to see how amazing they’ll get, the other part knows that’ll be impossible if that cocoa/raspberry flavor keeps showing itself in spades!

RyJ ex 4. Aug 18. Been some discussion on these lately so dug one out. Glad I did. These smoke well above their price point IMHO.  And the odd thing is I don’t like a lot of this Marca

I have the same ABO Ago 18 box code you have and mine have been excellent too.

Solid BRE NOV 18 Connie 1. First third was spectacular, the rest was good!

So good to hear, as your H.Upmann Connoisseur No.1 is from the notorious last quarter (Oct to Dec) of 2018, i.e prone to contain unfermented leaf. As you know, I have a box from this period and I'm glad we've both 'dodged a bullet', so-to-speak.

SOM-DIC-16 RG88: Way better than most people have said.  Nutty and floral with perfect construction/draw. 

You know, I had a good one of these last week too. Most of the box have been really bland, but this one was fragrant and enjoyable even if very mild - and construction was perfect.

Im with you both.  Always glad to see good experiences on the BRE NOV 18.  I’ve had a couple that were very good
