An RE Friday with @Nate Chu C&C for a Saturday morning with this Sir Winston from 03. Today is going to be great if this cigar is anything to judge it by. What a super smooth star

First cigar of the year.

C&C ‘14 especiales. Fantastic start to the day C&C with a Monte 4 C&C time today with a Perla picked up from 24:24

Those green spots are thought to occur when the wrapper is curing (or drying out) and there are imperfections in spots to do with humidity, whereby the chlorophyll in the wrapper leaf remains, rather than turn brown. It has no effect on the taste of the cigar and there is nothing to worry about.

Thanks for the info!

AEM JUL 14 reyes. This whole box has just been delightful. Chestnuts, hops, sourdough, some sort of non-peppery spiciness - like wasabi ir radish or something (it’s awesome, whatever it is). I can’t wait for that lovely salted-pretzel thing that trinidads always give me at the end.  There it is. Delightful. Mmmmmmmm

How many years we’re on the box when you started smoking out of it?  I have an ‘18 box, just wondering if I should let them rest a while

Just smoke em. I’ve had reyes that were 6 months old and reyes that were 6 years old. They were all excellent. I think each box has had ***slightly*** different character, but that it’s much more a result of different harvests than aging. In my opinion, reyes do not need age to show their potential. I think they’re excellent regardless of age. You will not ‘miss out’ by smoking them young. As long as they’ve had ~60 days to acclimate to your humi, I say smoke em now.

I tried one less than 60 days down, as I usually do because I get impatient haha.  Was good but could tell it needed the full 60 days.   Thanks for you input!

I usually smoke one ROTT too, especially when it’s a new vitola to me. Good to get a baseline. Then give everything else a good 60 days.

 I find reyes to be pretty bulletproof. I’m hard pressed to recall one that didn’t satisfy. Trinidads have a nice distinctive character. To me, that justifies the extra price point above my other favorite in the size range - principe.
