Rob's 'Nudies No 3' parejos size (blend 2) 2018


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the evocative words! I'm still unpacking your review a bit... I was right there with you on the "challenging" blend idea until you brought up the ERDM Choix Supreme which is, in my opinion/experience, just about the furthest thing from "challenging" I've ever had.

Oh, well- tongues are all different.  ?‍♂️

I don't mean ERDMCS in terms of a mass of complexity, rather that.they have an unusual flavour that is a bit of an outlier.

By the look of the ash I would say Nicaraguan leaf.  The fact that Hamlet assisted in the blending also causes me to lean towards Nicaraguan.  I'm sure Ken has also contributed to the blend.  Given that Rob, Ken and Hamlet have such refined palettes and are experts in the art of Cigars they are bound to be exceptional.  I am looking forward to trying them once they are out.   

Having said all that my money says they will be Cuban puros.?

Looking forward to those as well.

I have to ask, as we both tended to agree that SdC contained a protein or venison game taste, do these possess any of that? I know that does not exactly sound appetizing but I have to wonder if these contained the same elements.

Thanks for sharing my friend. If I am going to trust online cigar tasting notes, it is going to be from some of my mates here.

Cheers! -R

The only touch of that, was in the back end, which I found surprising as I thought it would be full of under matured tannin. I was pretty flabbergasted. As close as I've tasted in any other cigar. The bonus with these cigars is they are wonderfully constructed, as all the original SDC No3s I've seen are pretty ugly. I think these are a winner.        Or maybe El Pres is just punking me, sending some gas station specials?

Dark discontinued diplomaticos are capable of ash that white. I'll try and post one when I'm back home

I assume that:

- it is very difficult to export the required amount of tobacco from Cuba

- it is to carry into Cuba tobacco from Nicaragua, you will become a laughingstock

- cigars are highly likely rolled in Cuba, it is cheap and allows you to take out the finished product without problems

- such ash is not a highly rarity for HSA cigars, but for custom it is more common

- the color of the wrapper can be achieved quite easily using steaming, which is also common for Maduro fake and custom.

 

In conclusion, I want to say that any ligador wants to get access to Cuban tobacco and try to create a mixture with Nicaraguan, Dominican, Honduran and others, but so far it is unlikely.

Thanks to Stefan for the review, surprised by the high rating (score 94 is the level of HSA top cigars and limitadas). I look forward to buying a custom sampler from El Presidente at the store

I was using the point boundaries that Rob and Ken seem to use i.e. sub 80 is pretty awful. 80-83 is poor. 84-87 is ok. 88-91 is good.92-94 is very good 95-98 is excellent. 99 is breathtaking fabulous. 100 is Unicorn territory. 

It's not a system the I completely understand, as to me if its scored out of 100, a terrible cigar, in my head, should be getting 30 etc

To me this cigar was very good. If that equates a lower score in a different system, please adjust etc.

Thrilled that you enjoyed it!

The one you smoked was the Nudies 3 and it indeed was inspired by my love of the Partagas Connie 3.  I would love to do this one in bundles of 50. 

The other cigar I sent you was the Nudies 1.  It is a gorgeous Lancero.  the blend/flavour I was aiming for was the Partagas Connie 1. 

We are close to nailing what we are looking for and will start the next stage of blending toward the end of Jan. 

thoroughly enjoying the process of building cigars again :spotlight:

I am so very happy you are in the process of building this cigar! When we herfed with John S, he told us you were an educator to the culture of cigars (which he was doing, quite well I tell you). But to help blend a superb cuban cigar puts you (in my mind at least) up with Hamlet. 

I wish you well and would luv to see the Nudies come to fruition. If they are ever up on 24:24 or elsewhere, I will try to be the first to gain a bundle! :thumbsup:
