  1. Happy birthday Di! I hope you have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious day!!
  2. haha. not quite so dramatic though. Normally I would agree but I smoked it very slowly and it also depends on the cigar sometimes. In this case it really didn't affect the flavors enough that it was noticeable. Very enjoyable cigar. I gave it a 92 score.
  3. Really? I think i would of been in contention to win that with this ash! oh well...bad timing! but i really enjoyed the cigar and the progression of that ash! haha no! sitting down but keeping my cigar up when i saw the ash starting to get long. certainly wasn't expecting it to go all the way!
  4. Good thing a got me self a cab! excellent news indeed!!! Thanks for the review!
  5. Just tough I'd share this. The cigar, Quai d'Orsay Capitolio. Enjoyed indoors, so out of the effects of the elements. The ash, well pretty amazing!!! and yes no trickery...its real!!
  6. Well Well! I really wasn't expecting to have this cigars as a fav! Always wanted to try them but never pulled the trigger on a box until recently, and WOW was I impressed! I don't see them as harsh or strong but rather full of dark cherries with a floral base and some milk chocolate mixed in. its really tasty and I love them! and so young! can't wait to see how they progressively develop. Am I the only one who characterizes the cazadores in this way?
  7. to me the la trova tops them all. plus it's the same size as the 1966 Cohiba LE, which i love!
  8. 62 - 63. and yes that's also fine for aging. I have 2000+ cigars and many are 8 + years old now. sampling them from year to year as mostly been an improvement on them.
  9. its about time they reviewed my favorite cohiba of all time! the V !!
  10. can't vote for Joker, Pheonix was great but is performance alone should not influence the movie itself, which was just good. As a movie in its entirety, Ad Astra and Ford vs Ferrari stand out from what i've seen. the Irishman, all the hype around it, it was just ok. much prefer Goodfellas by far from scorcese. i'm not even sure about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, i honestly found most of it pointless unless you don't have a clue how holllywood works. i'm not even sure it needed the mason story in there at all! love Tarantino but his last 2 movies were just ok. i've heard good things about Knives Out, be looking at that soon!
  11. i see you got the same factory code as my box, mind is from '07 though. i've probably had about 8 cigars out of the box over 10 years and to me the cigars are all class! never had one with champagne though. i should try that sometime.
  12. its hard to tell when it comes to aging when you have so many factors in play. i would concur with the keeping it in the boxes for the long haul(extreme aging), just because you have it in a micro climate condition(the box) so its more stabilized and it would keep it stable for a longer period if anything would happen with the outside humidity fluctuating now and then. but i do tend to smoke my aged cigars within a 10 year limit because i rarely see improvements after that period for most cigars. the're still very enjoyable but they do tend to lose a little bit of that intensity.
  13. aged or not aged CC's...i've been storing them between 61-63 RH and 66-70 temp and they've been smoking great! But like Rob as mentioned a lot of times, cigars are more resilient than most people think. So the conditions can be somewhat variable. the key thing is to make sure that when you do light them up, the RH isn't too high as general rule.
  14. i've got a box of these. smoked about half of them. really good cigars, very PL like. i'm putting the rest for a long sleep, i think they will be even better then. What i would love to see would be a box of PL Magnums or a 50 cab of des dieux. that would be nice!
  15. yup. love the cigars oasis. i have had them since i restarted enjoying cigars 7+ years ago. no issues except one that i dropped that broke, that one is on me!
  16. i've tried most of them and the siglo V is the top perfomer, followed closely by the CCE and CoLa. After having some great siglo V's, the siglo VI became a bit boring really. the V takes the power and intensity of the IV and its wrapped in the class of the VI. they are unbelievable when on!
  17. i just had a dumas last week and i did get that big chocolate hit but i also got some marshmallow and it was a very rich cigar, maybe the ones smoked for this review were a bit too young still? hope so cause mine was fantastic!
  18. By the way Ken, the main character in the Count of Montecristo is actually named Edmond Dantes, the Mexico regionals used this as the brand name since their was a legal issue using montecristo, hence why they used Emundo Dantes! i also saw the mini series special with Depardieux which was fantastic! and of course, its also one of my favorite books! love it! cheers! Steve
  19. Well since we are just fantasizing, i'd have to say the Bugatti Veyron...the one that broke all the rules in every way possible! Named in honor of the legendary Pierre Veyron. I saw it before its launch in Paris in 2002 at the auto show. Probably the only time i'll ever see one! Before 1980....a Lancia Stratos!
  20. For me it just shows that Habanos SA as actually started to give this brand a little bit of thought and money into it. Hey, it could of easily have went the other way and axed the whole brand! So i'm ok with them giving a dam!
  21. La Gloria Cubana Medaille d'or No1 from 2000. 19 years on them and they are still very vibrant!
  22. Too many too list but I'll put up all the 109's as the best!
  23. never ever puff while lighting your cigars! it really changes the flavor aspect, you'll never taste the cigar at its full potential! i usually use matches to light them up and i only light up the outside of the foot. Light it up good and the rest will happen naturally.
  24. Electric cars are the future, the technology will come that it will have pretty much no downsides and just better all around then combustion engines cars. but not YET!
  25. yeah not surprised, I've tried just about everything with cigars. OJ is up there but i prefer the type of sweetness from a good port. The other thing is the OJ won't do as well with some other cigars, the port will. at least that's what I've found.
