    I read a lot of mixed reviews. I had a couple, I would definetly let them sleep for a while.
    How much does it cost?
    Uhh somebody gift me a few. My B&M is selling the Cameroon version for around $8 bucks.

    are you ChemE? anyhow, celebration - viaje - anejo = padron 45th maduro or davidoff maduro robusto.

    no not chemE. Biology/Pre-Med. I ended up going with a La VÃ[​IMG]ritÃ[​IMG] again (great smoke, but again, will be phenomenal with age.)

    2 more years till I hit Med School at Ohio State, then the fun begins.

    Mine is feb 09. I have another aug 09 that I don't touch now. It's awful. This first box is decent now.

    going to the b&m tonight, any recommendations? (they don't have any viajes or anejos. [​IMG]) It could be a celebratory smoke, since I found out I did much better than anticipated in my 4-week intensive semester of ochem 2. Any recommendations are appreciated.

    BTW @lovewife, Hemingways are ~$10 these days, with the maduro wrapped ones being about $7-9 more per stick. at least, that's what they look like in Ohio where I am. YMMV.


    Congrats!

    On a side note, there is something wrong with your B&M. The maduro Hemigways have a MSRP $1 above the regular line. They are taking you for a ride on those. What are Opus prices like over there?

    The Opuses are standard pricing + tax (they're an Opus authorized dealer or some BS like that, so they can't gauge on those). So the Belis are $12.xx, and the Petit Lanc & Fuente Fuente are $14.xx... I also checked the prices on them as soon as I got there, and I was mistaken. They were around $12-ish, give or take a couple of dollars, for the maduros. My bad!

    Smoke an Illusione 888 today. It was a great cigar. Really wasn't spicy at first, it was real smooth. I taste a hint of spice as I finish the 1/3. 2/3 I get some nice chocolate and I want to said earthy. Honestly I wasn't paying attention to the last third. The burn wasn't pretty at first, but after a few puffs...it was razor sharp. I got a 20 min commute this semester. I'm looking forward to light up a Partagas Short. [​IMG]

    I don't think I've had an 888. I really like mj12. The robusto,88?, was mehh.

    What a few days its been. Need a fine cigar and big pour of bourbon and it's barely lunch.

    75 and sunny is perfect - get out there while you can. it's shitty here - hopefully it will clear up for the weekend.

    I'll look forward to the Viaje, thanks man [​IMG]

    I haven't try out the mj12 yet. A lot of people seem to prefer the 88 over the mj12. I order some mj12 and 88...so I'll see. I got a Brick House robusto line up for tomorrow. It's been sitting in my humidor for a while now. The first few I had a while back was solid. Also got a Hupmann No 2 for this Sunday.

    I don't think I've had an 888. I really like mj12. The robusto,88?, was mehh.

    i like the 2 and the MJ12 the most. the 88 was ok. i will buy more and sit on them. i didn't really give it a proper chance since it was smoked during 18 holes of golf.

    the epernay le ferme is great. recommend trying those as well. tad lighter than the regular line.

    i have yet to try a nosotros.
