    B, I know younlike the series a, have you had the aaa? They're on http://joecigar.com now, they worth it?

    ha. just saw the deal and pulled the trigger. never had one. i've lost about 2 dozen bids on cbid for 5 packs and/or boxes of the AAA. I've heard great things about them. Apparently it is a different blend than the run of the mill A, but everyone seems to like them more.

    AAA's seem significantly stronger.

    I've only had one of those and while I recall it being very good I don't think it was on par with a well aged Opus. Plus the price on those is insane. What size was that by the way?

    35, toro. It was good, haven't really smoked an aged opus, everything I've had was recent release

    couldn't resist this gift from ama.

    dark chocolate all around. nice kick ass start but mellowed out over time. fcuknu was right in that it does remind me of the t52s. price point is great for this cigar.

    it was really good. i'm impressed. shouldn't be that surprising coming from the pepin family.

    me and ama just went apeshit on buying. splitting VR famosos, SLR As, and LP t52s.

    Smoked a 99 punch corona yesterday in addition to an 03 cuaba salomone.

    Smoking an 09 vr famoso right now this is a fine cigar.

    Get a couple of Opus, toss them in the bottom of your humi and forget about them for 5 - 8 years. Its worth it.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] WRONG! Look at the stick, that is a robusto! You sent me the fattest stick in the wold its like a robusto gordo, I can't even fit it in my mouth! They appeared in my B&M the day I got the package from you. No 7 - 20 - 4 here though.

    Ehhhh. I've had better. Smoke was really creamy and mouth coating and there was good very sweet coco in the first third, but when that went away it was all flowers. Not so pleasing. I'd rather have a Lost City for the $$. Only saving grace was that I didn't pay for this, traded it Tat Red Tubo.

    Yea I don't know when of if I'll smoke that, might trade it away at the B&M to someone who fancies himself a "balla." I think I'd dislocate my jaw trying to finish it. edit: just looked it up, its a toro gordo 6 x 60. WTF???? Who smokes that shit?
