    Opuses lighten significantly with age, at around 8 years they look like Connecticuts.

    T52 will hopefully be in tom, the asshat office person manged to miss both Fedex and UPS today. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Smoked a mar10 small club corona and it was superb. They're finally using some stockpiled aged tobacco it seems. Still a bit rough around the edges but excellent flavor.

    Got my ci shipment of 1932s finally and they smell like cardboard compared to my habanos.

    Thats because CI doesnt humidify their cigars at all, so if theyve been sitting around they lose all the oil of their wrappers. Throw them in the humi for a month or 2. They probably wont come back to 100%, but theyll be good

    I really like them but haven't seen them in Boston in awhile. I am thinking about picking up a fiver of the Platino Reserva that NHC just got in. I prefer the Platino to the Oro. How is the 50/50?

    50-50 are my favorite of the Viaje..

    Just broke into my box of 09 Spanish RE Punch Gran Robustos. So far so good. Beautiful day to be outside smoking in Boston...

    Smoked the por larranga petit corona, spicy nutmeg throughout.

    Also was gifted a 99 punch monarch, will probably smoke it this weekend.
