Marevas (2/5)

  1. As far as 2019-2021 RA gigantes go they've been the most perfect cigar both flavour and construction I've had in a long time.
  2. I like to play but suck at it. Rarely find anyone to play with as well these days.
  3. Good Shocker - Every RA Gigantes I've had with two years or less on it. I've gone through a bucket of them in the last year and not one plugged, disappointing or tasteless cigar from various boxes. It's my favourite DC now (the Hoyo DC only pips it when you get a rare holy grail hoyo).
  4. Bad shocker - AJ Fernandez Enclave Broadleaf. Usually these taste pretty decent for an NC but must have been the bad one in the box. Plugged, tasted of cigarettes and overwhelming pepper. Got 1/2 way and sent it flying to the hills...
  5. I've found NC's 6-12 months down after purchasing really smooths them out. My limited experience has shown Drew Estate, Foundation, Davidoff and AF cigars age well. I've left a few of these alone for 2-3 years and they've become better and better. In the case of the Drew Estates it took almost all the pepper away just leaving chocolate and cream flavours.
  6. I had a Drew Estate T-52 the other night I'd left in the humidor for 3 years. A massive chocolate and cream bomb with some stout notes and very minimal white and black pepper. Nubbed it. Was very surprised and pleased.
  7. I thought it was mongolian humidor at first glance. Could almost hear The Hu "Wolf Totem" going off in the background.
  8. I'll probably pick up more boxes of Davidoffs and AF's. Also the nudies line. I love CCs but a couple of boxes a year to age and some NC's to tide me over til they do is all I need right now as I stockpiled heavy in the last year.
  9. It's like keeping score at a soccer match. Nil all...
  10. I love them. But then RyJ was the first cigar I smoked and its always been a special occasion cigar. Takes me about 1&1/2 hours for a full Churchill. For me it is THE Churchill.
  11. I would happily buy a 50 of the N1s in a box like that and wouldn’t care care what I had to hand over to customs in return.
  12. I've had the bottled old fashioneds from Starward and have to say they're pretty good: https://starward.com.au/collections/bottled-cocktails-1
  13. The last set of Hoyo DC's I tasted had a beautiful sweet cinnamon flavour to them. Otherwise QdO and PLPC are good for it.
