Cigars - Page 684

post #10246 of 10897
I'm going to order a box of each next week. Can't wait to get them my man

Also MUO PSD4...that's interesting. There was a MUO '14 RyJ Churchill batch that came through that are secretly Esplendidos, according to the fora.

I managed to get a box of those RyJ but stored in a place out of reach for now. Any preferences of ageing RyJ Churchills?

I'm not too experienced with them, to be honest--very hit or miss cigar for recent production I've tried from 04, 07, onwards. I've had really excellent older examples (late '90's) from friends, but there's a reason it's an iconic cigar. I hate the Wide Churchill size, but I've had a couple decent 10-counts of those; more consistent and flavorful than the flagship for me.

Yeh iconic cigars, I've only ever smoked 1 RyJ Churchill (tubo) and that was back in May in Bali - I just hope the trend is not to start discontinuing them and making more larger ring gauge. Those Cohiba Robusto Supremos are ridiculous in rg

I saw the Cohiba Robusto Supremos when I was in London and Switzerland. Absolutely ridiculous size. You can count me among those who have never had RyJs either. I haven't heard anything unequivocally good about any of the line, but I would like to try some at some point.

Ordered a box of each of the three we talked about earlier. Should have enough rest on the BPCs and the Monte 4s to try them by the time these arrive

Nice! I ended up grabbing some MUO PSD4. Curious. I don't like MUO '14 Cohiba Robustos at all, prefer the '13 BTO, but we'll see. Also 2x LGC#1 incoming from '02.

Interesting re MUO CoRo - they seem to be getting so much love on FoH.

I need to find myself more LGC! I got x2 boxes of fresh LGC mDo#4 that need to rest for a while.

Just bought a box of Cohiba Piramides Extra, prob should of sampled a single but I am a sucker for Cohiba. Any opinions on this stick you guys?
post #10255 of 10897
Sorry, only experience I have was with a singular Cohiba Piramide EL 2006
post #10256 of 10897
I had a couple from my one box around when they were first released. Don't care for them.

BoliPC with FdC 4yo Mexi Cuba Libre and FdC 12yo side-pour. My humidor has dropped to 59% and I'll be damned if my sticks aren't smoking all the better for it.
post #10258 of 10897
I too have found that the closer I get to 60% from 65, the better my sticks smoke. I've even got my friends pushing their humidors lower down, albeit from 70 (baby steps). Now to get them away from foam, PG, and xikar jars
post #10259 of 10897
I have the 61% beads, but don't keep 'em wet. I remember back in the day, when most of my humi was non-cc, I was at 70% and having the lamest draws on my CCs. Jet said the CCs needed to be much drier, which I admittedly thought was bs. Once I moved to all CCs, I gave it a go and have never looked back. Every now and then, my dad or someone will give me a couple of non CCs, which I'll pitch in... Now I think they fare better too. Maybe it's not the best for longer-term storage... But when aging several years, or so, it's really improved my smoking experience tremendously.
