    I received an '03 HdM HdD from Tripp in my MAW. This is a cigar the FoH raves about when aged, with the advice being the cigar needs 5 years before it's something special. I had very high expectations since often their reviews have been spot on. The cigar is a Coronas Grandes - 6 1/10 x 41 rg...

    Trying to decide on the next box purchase and narrowed it down to these two. Would appreciate any input. Thanks in advance.

    I do not know the year as this came from a fiver. This was smoked with a rum and cherry coke. The draw was very good and burn was prefect. Initially the flavor and body were very mild. about a quarter of the way into the smoke it started to pickup a little body and some earthy flavors...

    Tonight I'm smoking a 07 des Dieux gifted to me in the MAW/PIF by BamaDoc77 (thanks Stewart!). I'm on the porch in 85 degree Texas evening heat with some JW Red Label. This is a very attractive stick - good proportions (6x42) and a dark, smooth wrapper. The prelight draw was looser than I...

    Shaerza commented I haven't reviewed any CCs. True I haven't. So his bomb rests for another day. I do have a treat I've been sitting on. Ji sent me a HdM Des Dieux '01 last year. I decided to try it out tonight. It's a 6x40, handsome little lass. It's well-constructed and has been kept at...

    Just tried my first one of these. Nice construction and pre-light aroma. Burned evenly though it took some work to get a good draw at times. I love Hoyos, normally smoke bigger RG sticks. I found this a bit harsh and one dimensional. I'm a bit underwhelmed. There was a discussion recently...

    I just loved to see the Miami Dolphins come to town and whip on some Lions butts. Not because I have anything against the perenial losers themselves, but because over the last four years the quarterback, Joey Harrington, had taken the blame for their inescapable failures. It's always been the...

    Well, conditions were not ideal last night. The cigar bar where I had arranged to meet the Mrs turned out to be unusually smoky so we ended up outside after all, on the front patio of the Red Lion. It was still pretty warm, the humidity was high, and our entrées arrived about half way through so...

    Hoyo des Dieux Did this review on another board thought I would post it here also. Corona Grande 6 1/8 x 42 This cigar came from a 5x5 pack from Nov 03 This is a nice looking cigar with a beautiful light wrapper. Burn from the start to finish was almost perfect and didn't require any touch...

    The enigmatic Joe Gellman has long touted the virtues of the Hoyo de Monterrey Hoyo des Dieux, which I belive is a dalia. Last night I smoked the third stick of a box from 1999 (the year dreaded by many Habano-philes). Like the other two I've had, this is one terrific cigar. It burned...
