How are these smoking?

Pretty good. This was from a LGR JUN 17 box. I don't have a huge preference between the 4 different minutos but if I had to rank them it would probably be Bolivar Coronas Junior, El Principe (these), Partagas Shorts and then Ramon Allones Small Club Coronas, though it's pretty close overall (I smoke all 4). Just wish I had another box of El Principe as they seem to be in short supply now.

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

Thanks for the info. I was blown away by a La Fuerza recently so am going to get these too if they show up! Love the molasses flavour.

@heels82 new croc alert !!!!

Trova is such a classy cigar …..flavors are very rich and have quite a lasting finish …..they pick up decently in flavor intensity by the final 1/3 but only complaint (and from many) is the lighter body ……my recommendation is to know what the right occasion and setting for such a cigar is ….this is a cigar that should probably best be smoked indoors with a less over powering pairing than the stout I chose lol you should set yourself up to savor and think on This kind of smoke …..but what do I know !?

 

Have a little patience with these (3 years?) and you’re in for a treat …just as much fullness as an 898 although a different flavor profile …less complexity definitely ….but this is full on black coffee in a cigar if I’ve ever had jt ….really nice smoke gents

You know ankle shots are my thing, that's why you had the tube socks on for the Sing Sing pic.  Speaking of the big house, don't get pinched nicking some Crocs, I know that security tag is still in those beauties.  😎

2020 Monte no2 smoked while unpacking my latest FOH goodies. These have been indeed excellent lately… can’t decide if I should get a box since I usually smoke the Edmundos and have a good stock of them already.

If a box of no.2's were within my price range, I'd go for it, one, before prices get even higher and stock gets lower, and two, I think the no.2's are better than the Edmundos personally, not that the Edmundos aren't excellent too.

The no.2 is my favorite Montecristo, which is my favorite marca

They seem to get excellent reviews on the forums

Big fan of the La Fuerza. Excellent Cigars and I smoke a fair amount of them.

2008 Cuaba EL

@Trimming

How was the Cuaba EL?

First one I have ever seen, on the forums and with any vendors in my handful of trusted ones.

Didn't even know they existed and really like the Cuaba profile, at least from smoking the Divinos, traditionales (my preferred one), and Distinguidos.

Never had any of the others yet

How was it? I have one but holding off after a bad experience with a Diademas. Heard these were good.

@smbauerllc

 

Definitely different, I don’t reach often for  Cuaba or what it umbrellas , but glad I have a few. Seems to have the “twang” sort of like a tangy meat marinade that catches the taste buds on the side of tongue.
