My spring project is to lose the 20 Lbs I put on over the winter. Nearly there. Hit the treadmill for 30. Now lunch. An Epi 1 I won in a prize pack from our host many months ago that was bouncing around the singles tray in the Coolidor. 
 

so far a very smooth and flavorful first third. I’m remembering why I hit the box I have so hard last year and had to hide the last half.  Might be time for another box in a bit to get the aging going.

I just stocked up! It’s my favorite Corona Gorda right now. Love the mag 46 but the epicure 1 is more approachable with its lower strength and I think it’s more complex as well.

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

Don’t forget the JL1. My favorite size. Well supplied except the epi1. Waiting on a good sale.

Sorry can I clarify what's the difference between V and UV? (other than the obvious length difference)

@Bijan answered perfectly, and yes the blend is subtly different in a lighter, complex way

So many good Corona gordas going which is great it’s my favorite vitola (probably most people’s).  I think the Punch Punch is still underrated. I’m on a box from 19 that’s just hitting its stride right now and has become phenomenal.   Just picked up 2 more boxes of those.  The Epi 1, and Mag 46 both have been great.  Jl1 has been good too, although it’s the one CG I think that is being outperformed by its sibling robusto.  Not 100% on that, I’m about to crack into a new box of 1s so that may change.  I still think the Sig IVs are terrific, people just want them to be mini Sig VIs and they are not, a different blend but for what they are it’s a great smoke.  I keep waiting for [mention=5074]Elpresidente[/mention] to do a CG video series, be very interesting who came out on top as it could be anyone’s game right now.  

Superiores may take the cake for me ...I agree on the IV...much stronger blend then VI ...throws ppl off because they think III or VI

Those are great too!  Didn’t think about them as I was thinking about regular production, forgot LCDH releases.  Little pricier than the others save the Sig IV.

I agree with you on the JL1. My first box of Punch Punch was a disaster...I have another that's much better but it's gonna rest for another year or so while I attack the PSdP's I have. I have had a few aged examples that were amazing.

I forgot about RAS and IV! I havnt had a IV and the aged RAS I had were disappointing, I havnt had one from recent production. If a good deal comes around I'll definitely snag a box.

PLMC last evening 

I’m always astounded on days when the same cigar shows up on multiple posts for the daily. Last night was PLMC night apparently and I had one too. It doesn’t happen all the time but I think it’s pretty interesting when it does.
