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

Yes I am. I'm off from 3/8 to 3/18 and I'm enjoying the free time while I can. Although I will only smoke 1-2 a day then its back to my 1-2 a week regimen.

Plus I only smoked three in MTL so I need to catch up :P

Last evening was a Ramon Allones evening, 2012 Superiores and a Gigantes (no idea of code but would say 2009/10) - both delicious

2009 Monte Especial #2. Wow, what a strong smoke!! Spice and chocolate to start, with aromas of hemp. Very nice, but will need some more years to come together. These have legs to go loooooong way !!

How was that Valiosos? They’ve been tempting me but haven’t bought one yet. Would like to hear your thoughts on them.

Delicious! I was very pleased with the way they are coming along as this is my first in about a year. Medium profile with great flavors including baked bread and roasted nuts, voluminous smoke, with a razor sharp burn. About 80 minutes smoke time. Well worth trying a single.

Still see these readily available at most shops I frequent in Zurich. For under 20chf it gives you a bit of age compared to the more recent Suiza RE's which sell for the same or a bit higher.

I would also try the 08 JL Maximos RE if you stumble across a few of them.

Thanks a lot for the heads up. Have indeed still seen quite a few of these around in Zurich, will give them a try for sure now. Thanks again.

Thats pretty darn young.

Have had a couple 2012 (none that young) and they did not impress at all. 2011 was only slightly better.

So tempted by all the sales here and at other vendors recently, but scared away from buying lousy $25-35 cigars...

I tend to think these will come around (believing that the OR were being held back for awhile to make a splash). But we'll see. Will try one in a couple of weeks and post my thoughts.
