It really depends on the box. My 50s were reliably stronger than my 54s. I’ve seen reports on QdO that are all over the place, but the montesco size is typically a milder format.

It had been a while since I had a 50, but i did think it seemed much milder than I remembered, so you seem to be correct.

Plus mine were bought as singles, so may not be from the same box even.

Kinda sucks they would be all over the place like your saying.

Much nicer to know what to expect when you choose a smoke.

Thanks for your info

Cohiba Coronas Especiales SOP JUN 20
Enjoyed the day after arriving and slightly underfilled. The result is mostly toasted tobacco and ash. Will try again after 60 days but probably let them rest another year.
EDITED TO ADD:
Finishing up now. Just a mediocre cigar, but promising signs. Definitely just a matter of letting them rest a year or two.

Mine are also 2020's and the couple I have had after just a month to rest and acclimate have been excellent. Also definitely weren't under filled as all have needed some work with the Perfecdraw to be smokable.

Bummer you got a bad one. Always sucks getting disappointed after anticipating a good Cigar.

Also for as much as they cost, they should really be perfectly constructed, every time.

No excuse for a roughly $25+ Cigar to have any kind of issues, imho

@Rupe

How was it?

Considering picking some up one of these days as they get pretty favorable comments/reviews from most people.

Just have shied away from getting some being such a short length.

Not much of a fan of anything under 5", but there have been exceptions for sure.

How long was the smoke time for you?

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

I just smoked original release a few days ago! No longer have box but believe it was 09 or 10. Glad I have a few left. So complex and rich on the palate. Dont see another September cigar coming close.

Haven't smoked one since early 2020. How was this one for you? Thanks in advance.

Romeo y Julieta is definitely not my favourite marca. Usually only have the Cazadores and Churchills in my humidor.

And I have been disappointed on more than one occasion with the Edición Limitada releases.

That being said, this particular cigar is very enjoyable to me. So much so, that I wish that I had purchased another box.

A wonderful blend of subtle sweetness and baking spices. Thick rich smoke that provides a wonderful mouthfeel. Solid medium with gradual intensity towards the third and final act. Should continue to age quite nicely.

No construction or combustion issues whatsoever. Simply a very well rolled sobrasaliente.

Hope this helps.

Wow..Original release. Mine was 2016, flavors are very good for this one.. Kinda turn the corner, previous ones I smoke was average at best. Looking forward to the next one in a month or two.

Thanks!

MSA FEB 2019 lusi, who said double Coronas were mild? 2.5 hour powerhouse of a smoke. Will let these rest for another year before I sample another from the box


@yadegari6


Where would you put it on the common strength scale of mild, medium, full or a combo of 2?

Granted, the extra 3 years may have mellowed mine a bit more than yours, but have had better luck with stronger smokes when young, not being too mild or bland for my tastes with age, especially much past the 5 year mark, out of the roughly 50+ aged and Vintage smokes I have had.

Have a 2016 I have been sitting on for no particular reason that I really need to smoke as it will be my first DC and first Lusi.

@Boss Hog

How was it strength of flavor wise? I haven't had good luck with milder when young Cigars appealing to me past 5 years age or so.

The ones I actually liked were all stronger when young.

I have a 2016 I need to try out as it would be my first DC, and first Lusitania

@RDB

Any particular box dates or factory codes that tend to be typically mild, or typically stronger that you have noticed or heard/read anywhere?

Mine was really milder than I prefer my smokes, so would love to be able to get stronger ones if its possible to know how they are based on box code...

Morning D4 C&C. Cheers on the Holiday.

A definite staple in my stash.
Consistently excellent smokes for the price
Not bad with a few years age too

Nice.
I see these posted a lot so they must be pretty good.
Have one, but haven't tried it yet
