  4. Just returned from a great Ski Trip to Zermatt and St. Moritz. The Snow and Skiing were incredible! Was able to pick up these 2 wonderful Boxes. The first one courtesy of Marc Portmann...Thank you to Nino for his introduction to this wonderful Family! LGC #2 ULA Jul 14 Saint Luis Rey Lonsdales SCD ES00 Jun 1999
  5. Best Shop in Zurich is Samuel Menzi's LCDH on Bleicherweg 9. There are also Davidoff Shops throughout the City Center if you want your typical ready to smoke stuff. Airport Duty Free in Zurich is nothing special. Be sure to bring the Cigars you want to smoke to Zermatt as there are very few places to purchase a Cigar if you are not carrying. Cigar Bars etc... Will be in Zermatt myself spending Christmas, then over to St. Moritz for the New Year. Enjoy CH!
  6. A nice Box of Party 898 SOM Sept. 16 overlooking Paradeplatz Zürich City Center
  7. Here is what I am using. Great Device with an App connected to my iPhone. Swiss made!
  8. Done! Are you at 98 Subscribed? Will watch that 1998 Dip 4 review when I light something up at Aperitivo time.
  9. Great Review Ray! Very entertaining and well presented... I hope that you will start doing more reviews, especially some of your Habano classics.
  10. I know you appreciate a little levity there Prez! Ray teed it up for me and I could not resist?
  11. I am looking forward to see what Klimate Ken has to say about this?
  12. Dip 4 June 07 Have not tried one of these in a while. Picked them up in a small Cigar shop in the Town of Raperswil at the southern end of Lake Zürich. You never know what you might find when you peruse these Shops across Europe. Paired w a nice cold Bitburger...Bitte ein Bit! 1st Third A bit of a loose draw so I will have to take it a bit easy with this. Woodsy, dry forest, occasional flicker of caramel corn. Smoke is aromatic. 2nd Third Not much has changed. Has a predominant, wood, earth, tobacco, profile. Burn has been great. Draw could be a bit more restrictive to my liking. Final Third Has stayed the same throughout. Nothing evolved. Nice Cigar, but nothing special flavor wise. Finish 52 minutes and change
  13. 2015 Quintero Favorito Have not had one of these in quite some time. Have them in my Humidor for Yard work or to share w a Newbie Smoker. The Cigar smoked the same pretty much throughout from start to finish. Pure tobacco and earth. Very monotone. No nuance of flavor. They are what they are... 1:03:55
  14. Great review Ray! Keep them coming. Especially enjoyed the background track from A Trick of the Tail during the review. A brilliant Song/Album and apropos for a Party SdC #3! Interesting that you picked up the same gamey, animal protien, nuances that the OP and I picked up on. I added the balsamic reduction nuance as that sweetness component that I believe you and the OP referenced in your review. It was not overt, but it was there a twinge on the back finish of a retrohale. Glad that you enjoyed the Cigar and it appears that all 3 different Vintages (03,05,06) reviewed, are smoking nicely. These vintage SdC 1,2 #3's, HdM du Prince, du Roi, du Dauphin, Punch SS#1, Ninfa's, to name a few, are some of the Classic Habanos that I truly enjoy and are so much different than today's current releases. It would be great for you to consider any number of your Classic's for future reviews!?
  15. This thread motivated me to try a Stick from this Box that I purchased about a year ago in St. Moritz... POS May 2006 1st third: great restrictive draw and feel in the hand. Minty dry draw before 1st light. Right into stride w a nice leather, spicy Partagas profile. I did pick up on the Foie Gras reference. I would describe it more as a Duck breast w a balsamic reduction. A sweet gamey flavor that mingled w the leather and spice. 2nd third: stayed consistent w these flavors. A bit of a bite, tannic, on the finish which I liked as these Marcas are far from being spent. Burn was razor sharp w plenty of aromatic smoke filling the air. Final third: very pleasurable as I nursed the Cigar along. Leather, spice, pepper, and that gamey sweetness still prevails as I winded down. Love these #3's and this is another example of why this has been a favorite of Habanos lovers worldwide. Conclusion: 60 minutes of smoke time. If you have never had the pleasure of smoking one of these brilliant #3's, I encourage you to do so if you ever have the opportunity to secure a Box. The flavor intensity of these Vintage SdC #3's is pure joy to this Habanophile!
  16. Celebratory Suiza RE at the Matterhorn Hörnlihütte after a successful rappelling episode w my Friends from Air Zermatt.

  18. Released this week in Zürich. 155chf for a Box of 10
  19. HdM Elegantes are priced at 130chf in Zürich. Compared to the RAS which are 108chf. I have smoked a few since release and they are quite good. Medium bodied, nice flavors. Worth a pick up...
  20. Punch Super Selection #2 Oct 98 Just a fabulous Cigar! Still very much full of Life as it pushes towards it's 20th Year.
  21. My bad... 1999 du Dauphin. It was a typo on my part.
