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

How was the Hoyo?

Bad... Worst cigar I had since the end of April.

Haven't had good luck with this box. Might forget about them for a while.

Warped 1988. Probably around 2-3 years old. It is smooth but my gosh is it boring. Hope it turns a corner at the halfway point

I just smoked one of those the other day.
It was my first ever Warped.

I really didn't care for it either

I believe warped has has a big drop in quality over the past 3-4 years. I enjoyed quite a few cigars in the portfolio but they started becoming sour and dull. Been over a year now since I have purchased a single NC cigar.

While allowing my better CCs time to rest, I've been burning through a diverse NC collection amassed over the last 10-12 years or so. I've only had a couple Diamond Crowns and none really hit home with me in the past but this one did! A 3-4ish year old spiced cream bomb, like a great Epicure 2 on steroids. I was very pleased.

My old boss in Charlotte, NC smokes 1-3 Diamond Crown no 4’s every day, no exception.

Had a long day at work, decided to dip into my singles drawer.
First time trying, and unknown box code (H.Upmann Connossieur A).

Edit: this might be one of the best cigars I've had this year and I'm only an inch in.


I’ve thought that about a lot of cigars 1 inch in

I found it to be very decent, Earthy leather and orange citrus notes a plenty.

Unusual start to the day today!  A friend who favors NC’s generously gifted an assortment of Tatuajes (new Marca to me) following a trip to Tampa.  

Also new was having a “morning” cigar – and a culebra at that!  A Tatuaje Fausto Culebra (or 1/3rd of one), which comes as part of a boxed set, which includes Fausto lanceros.  It's called, “The Old Man and the C”

For an "Old Man" made cigar, this seemed clearly youthful, but packed with flavours.  They were bold, well-defined flavours with good progression and it's construction was perfect, especially for being so crooked.  Truly impressive.  This cigar was well out of my “wheel house” – not at all the more aged and (when excellent) often more refined (even when strong) variety of Cuban flavours I’ve come to prefer.  This Tatuaje struck me with its bold but well-integrated, progression; refined in it’s own curious way.  
Paired with an espresso, smoking this seems like I'd imagine a bitter chocolate/dessert tasting – except that there is so little sweetness (entirely fine with me).  It begins with a fairly strong “leather” flavor that quickly turns to bitter chocolate nibs, followed by what I can only describe as (bitter) chocolate cake.  By the 3rd/3rd (when time ran short), the cigar seemed to reversed that entire flavour progression.  Having never had a culebra, I was struck by the pleasant draw of such a crooked cigar.  Good fun.   

While I’m still decidedly in the CC camp, this was a good excursion, one worth trying again!


Nice! I have one on the way. I am a big fan of the Fausto blend but find they really help with some age as it’s a pretty strong blend
