I like the wine analogue--if it's a crap wine, it's not going to get better with age. If the underlying raw materials are good, as with cigar tobacco, and pending good storage, yes, the cigars will get better with age. You can play with air exposure (cabinet of 50 vs. dress box of 25 vs. tubos vs vacumn sealing) to adjust how 'gracefully' cigars age.

P#2/Lancero/Molinos/Famoso were all from a good friend.

Nice! I got this 3-ply, as well as two solids also. Hoping mine are on the way shortly.

X-post from NMWA...Regretting not having someone snap solo pictures where it's not pulling slightly, but the Ciro cream silk DJ in its natural habitat: a villa wedding on Lake Como. [[SPOILER]]
Didn't manage to get any solo pictures taken where it's not pulling slightly, but this is the cream silk DJ that was stocked in May. Shown in its natural habitat, a villa wedding on Lake Como. Fantastically comfortable. [[SPOILER]]
Can't all be like RogerP!
