Underrated where and by who? This cigar is unanimously praised on cigar boards for years.

Was gifted a Cohiba Esplindido from a mate that tasted like burnt hair, It lasted 30 min before I tossed it I really hope it was a fake one Best stick this year was prob a PL Montecarlo (an exceptio

Huh. So not just me on those Triunfos. I posted up a thread a while back on it Sent by the Enigma on BlackBerry.

Worst: Siglo 5, Pretty sure it was a fake. 10 minutes in I had to lay it down.

Best: Monsdale for obvious reasons... It was a Monsdale!

Honorable mention goes to Encantos, some Punch Punch, RA Superiores

Best: La Gloria Cubana Md'O #1 2001. simply sublime.

Worst overall: Jamaican Bay Jamaican cigar gifted to me by a friend.

Worst Cuban: A surprise here as it was a 2005 Mag 46 which for me are 99/100 spot on. Must have been a dud as the rest from the same box have been brilliant.

Best- H upmann Mag 46 from 2010 (So smooth, sweet, touch of spice and creamy. Retro-hale from the last third was pure bliss ok.gif )

Worst- RASS from 2013 (started bland, loose, picked up a bit at the end)

Best - MUO coded Siglo II. Batting 2/2 with this box thus far. 92+

Worst - 2011 Trini Reyes. Hopefully just a dudder out of my 12 count cab. The others have been good to great

Best: Montecristo - #4

Worst: Romeo y Julieta - Julieta

This Monte 4 was the first from a PSP box handpicked by Rob. Very young (2014 box code), and I smoked it to the nub without harshness.

Gets a special mention as it was the first good Montecristo I've smoked to date. Now I understand what people refer to when talking about the trademark Montecristo flavours.

While the flavours were distinct and pleasant, they were also slightly subdued. I expect this box to get even better with time. Can't wait for the next one!

Best cigar of this month was a bloody good Partagas Short I smoked few days ago. Unbelievable depth and complexity. Consistetly good box but this stick was out of space (ROL MAY13) Runner up: H.Upmann Royal Robusto

The worst of July was a Montecristo No5. Underfilled wind tunnel. (OPE SEP12)
