SLR Regios 07 amazing


Recommended Posts

Acquired a fiver of these a few weeks ago. UAS MAR 07 I think. Smoked one so far and it blew me away. So much flavor, like a perfectly overripe peach.

Just wanted to see if anyone else has been smoking 07's and if they are all this good. 08's? I may need a box ;)

I like a lot of SLRs, but a fiver of Regios from SEP 07 left me completely underwhelmed. Tasted fairly bland to me. I stocked up years ago on the 02s, which are much stronger & fuller bodied. But if YOU like the 07s, that's what's important if you will be buying them.

I wish they were all that good :lol:

I know the flavours you describe. I have had some Regios which rank amongst the best Robusto you could ever want to experience (some 06/07). Just as I get really excited I try another from a different shipment and am let down. Great boxes are indeed "Great" but you need to gain advice as to what is in stock and each box needs to be inspected. There is no such thing as a "great" year fo any particular cigar. Great batches are as close as you are going to get.

I see. I have been seeing mixed reviews on SLR's in general, which is partly why I brought it up. I guess I was having some wishful thinking.

I never really see anyone review a terrible Partagas short, but often see disappointed Monte No 2. reviews.

Are there any consistency patterns you have found in terms of brands/vitolas?

I have had plenty of disappointing Partagas Shorts. Early 07 were great....had a bad patch second quarter. Then again this was my stock and I can only comment on that.

Consistency patterns. Early and late year production better than mid. However the current Punch Petit Corona and Patagas 898V are both July production (07) and I love them.

Low production cigas (less popular) generally better consistency than popular. Then again I have seen/experienced poor examples.

Short answer, no consistency patterns I can really say is a "given".

I can attest to that. Smoking an 07 898 now whilst trying to convert someones database. Brilliant cigar. Crap database.

Converting databases is a GOOD TIME! (i hope there is no msaccess or filemaker pro involved ;)
