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

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

Big fan of J Wakefield beer.  Can be very experimental in a good way as I recall. ...Haven't seen their product up in SC for a while unfortunately.  (That stout looks like a "big" one, unusually so.  How was it?)

The stout was excellent ….definitely viscous texture to it …barely boozy at all ….all the advertised flavors came through ..the almond least so ….I’d drink it again but I’d split it with a friend as it was a bit much to work through the whole bottle ….definitely too overpowering for the trova

2003 Hoyo des dieux.
2007 el Laguito CCE (PLM ENE 07). Hazelnut coffee with cream. Totally unexpected. If I were smoking this blind I would probably have been stumped.


Quite the combo ….how were they overall ? Delicious and smoked well?

Awwright, my first Lusitania.
I gave it 90 minutes and still had most of the final third. Unfortunately my smoking window was up. Draw and construction was perfect. Not the slightest touch-up needed. Wonderful chocolate and almonds on the first third. It got more austere into the second, with notes of coriander seed and cumin (I did make Indian food tonight, hmm). Some spice, and eventually some bitter notes, which is possibly me puffing too much. Very much looking forward to the next one, for which I will set aside 2 1/2 hours

Just had my first one recently also.

It was a 2016

Thought it was great and definitely lived up to the hype.

Sorry for the terrible pic. Sun was still coming up. This comes from a SOU NOV 20 box that I got from here. Basically smoking one ROTT. I wanna say they came in less than two week ago. They are already delicious. It’s always a treat when you can tell very early on that a box is going to be fantastic.

Have a box on the way. Glad to hear they are smoking good!

Both had perfect construction and no relights. Both delicious. The CCE probably the better cigar but the unexpected flavours threw me off a bit (hazelnut coffee with cream). The des dieux smoked like the previous ones I had (fruit, tannic wood and some creaminess). I actually smoked that one on Friday night and it was humid so I picked the lightest cigar I could find and it smoked ok until the end.
