WINNERS ANNOUNCED!! 2020 12 Days of Christmas Review Competition starts December 1.

Recommended Posts


The 12 days of Christmas samplers should have arrived by this time :D

For the record, the sampler included the cigars listed at the bottom of this thread. 

Now they are to be smoked at your pace and in whatever order that you wish but the competition starts December 1 :cigar:


What we invite you to do is to review the cigar. Specifically:

  1. Start a new thread 
  2. Format it as follows :  Montecristo Supremos 12DCRC
  3. Make sure you include the 12DCRC at the end in order that we can differentiate it for this comp. 
  4. detailed review and include a picture or 5. Let us know:
  • the setting
  • what you are drinking etc etc 

All reviews go into the draw for three super (and I mean super) premium samplers (8-10 cigars). 

Now if you didn't go into the sampler but would like to review one of the below cigars....jump on in. You will still go into the draw. 

The comp starts December 1 and runs until our return from the Christmas break :spotlight:


* If you didn't manage to secure a sampler and you have one of the below cigars at home, feel free to join the competition by reviewing and posting it. 




The sampler was as follow:D



Montecristo Supremos 2019 Edicion Limitada



Pure Monte goodness delivering cocoa and cream in spades.

There was barely a rough edge to be found in the near two hours we took to smoke them.

Quai D’Orsay Sensadores Edicion Limitada 2019 

Grand Corona


Quai D’Orsay is a marque on the rise with both the 50 and 54 being runaway hits.

They have another home run with the Senadores

H. Upmann Propios Edicion Limitada  2018

Corona Extra


Love this cigar. Tastes very much like a mix between the H. Upmann 48 LE and very good Mag 46.

Shortbread and espresso driven. Medium bodied, maybe a touch over.

Montecristo Number 2 (25)  



2020 Monte 2 are off the charts good. 94/5 rating at the recent video review.

Palate coating cocoa, coffee, and cream. Medium bodied. 

They are at the top of their game.

Bolivar Belicoso Finos  



They have been great all year. They made last years list and if anything, they have only got better.

Creamy stout goodness with a touch of liquorice, leather, coffee biscuit.

Big on flavour and they can be enjoyed young as long as you don’t mind a touch of mongrel.

Medium full and tasty as hell.

Romeo y Julieta Churchill  



They have maintained the rage. A beautiful lady that you will enjoy immensely.

Spiced cherries, unsweetened cream with some sweet spices of nutmeg lilting in and out.

Cohiba Robusto   



The aroma at cold is a perfume of tobacco, citrus and sweet spice. Sheen, aroma at cold, construction.

Coffee, cream, orange peel, honey, sweet spices, cake

Partagas Lusitania

Double Corona 


They have been absolutely brilliant this past 6 weeks.

…..paprika spiced sweet cream, coffee cake, toasted tobacco, touch of honey.

48 minutes ago, bundwallah said: one of the cigars in the sampler to enter the contest? Or review every single cigar in the sampler for the contest? :lookaround:


Every review from that sampler  goes into the draw. 

However, if someone has that same cigar at home (purchased outside of the christmas sampler), review it and go into the competition draw :thumbsup:
