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.

Monte from a trade and John Wick 3

How was the monte?
Was just recently gifted one of the EL 2019's and have never heard anything about them.

Planning to sit on mine until a good holiday or something else special comes up, as I'm guessing that they cost more than I'm willing to pay for a single smoke, so its likely to be my only on ever.

It was ok.  Nothing special.  I quit buying anything but regular production a while ago and this is exactly why.  I had an Edmundo right after I finished the EL and the Edmundo blew it away.  Now, it could have been that particular stick, could have been age, could have been a number of things, but in general, my cigar disappointments have dropped significantly since my move to regular production only.

The same applies to the Topes I posted a day or so ago.  I went through about 5 boxes of the EL Topes and have gone through 1 box of the regular production Topes.  Price may have crept into my head a bit but I would take the reg prod Topes over the EL everyday...all day.

If I am going to spend that kind of coin on a cigar, it will be a Siglo VI, not a Monte that can't outperform it's reg prod counterparts.

Bottom line, I liked it, but not enough to buy it.

I feel the same way about EL's. Have only ever had a couple I was given and they weren't any better than regular production to me either, so I have no plans to explore that realm of cc's.

Have tried plenty of aged and even Vintage, so it was nice to explore those realms, but I wasn't impressed enough to continue with it.

I do plan to continue exploring ER's though, as I have been very impressed with the handful I have tried so far, but otherwise plan to stick to regular production too.
They are just fine to me, and much cheaper, so I can get more for my limited budget.

Nice.
All excellent smokes. Especially the MDO.
I have only been able to scrounge up one, but it was incredible. Plan to try to get more in a private sale on another forum that does it a lot.
Happy belated birthday

After two weeks of mostly crappy cigars this siglo 3 made up for them

I can understand.
Yesterday 2 of my 3 smokes just plain sucked.
Trying to redeem it with a HDM le Hoyo de San Juan this morning
