    Good Day, Ladies and Gentlemen of Puff! I come to you all today with a most bizarre question indeed. I just purchased a box of Oliva V's from a very legitimate source online. I ordered it on priority shipping, and it arrived at my doorstep in about 2 or 3 days. I sampled one the day they came...

    I was reading a bit on the Habanos website and for every page on limited editions they have this: "The Ediciones Limitadas - Limited Editions - of Habanos are of a great acceptance in all markets worlwide. They are characterized by their vitolas that do not appear in the usual range of the...

    So Ive discovered cigars rott from Famous smoke fantastic. CI/Cbid cigars need at least a month or 2. Just an observation I thought may be helpfull.

    Gents Again, another noobish question. In the cigar world, aging is often talked about. 95% of my Habanos require 2 yrs of aging to be smokable. 5% are good right off the truck. Most NC's are good with a little " rest". Are there some tobaccos that smoke better than others young? What...

    Being on this forum I read a lot about infestations of those pesky beetles. Is it common practice to freeze ROTT? Or only when suspicion is raised when getting a new box? I'm realizing the kind of investment I am building in my Humi.

    Received a 5-pack from cbid today...couldn't wait to try one. I thought it was probably against my better judgment but I'm happy to report that it has been a REALLY good experience. This is the first one I have smoked with the new label. Holy cow this thing produces a lot of smoke. And the...

    Hey guys, I am looking for a good CC right of the truck. I am getting married in June and decided that for our rehearsal dinner, I want everyone to spoke a CC. My fiancee is letting me have a cigar bar, I would rather smoke a CC then a high priced NC. I have inquired and the cigars that i have...

    How much age do these need? Are they similar in taste to the GH Vintage 2002?
  9. Habanos Discussion
    I am going to order my first box of CCs but I am a complete noob and want to make sure I get something decent. The only CC that I have smoked was a Monte #4. It was awesome but also had about 3 years of age on it. If I order a box of Monte 4s will they smoke good ROTT or will I need to sit on...

    I've been planning a Fonseca box split with another BOTL for when I'm placing my next order and he asked a great question: are one of the Cosacos, KDTs or Delicias better ROTT than the others or do all of them need aging? Any input, guys?

    Today I will be receiving my first ever Liga Privada T52's and my first ever My Father 1922's...which do you wise BOTLs think would be a better ROTT smoke? There is NO WAY that I can make it home with all of them intact, just too damn excited to try both of them. 1:30 the UPS man should be...
  12. Habanos Discussion
    I'm wondering if anybody's experienced this. I bought a box of Upmann Corona Majors (Coronas Major??), box code AST JUN 09 around this time last year. When I got them they were smoking superbly. I had one back in January and another today and they were both very harsh and quite bitter at the...

    These good right off the truck? I don't mean the day they arrive. I let them settle in my humidor for a week or two. Will they taste decent without having to wait several months?? I bought a few of them and I am really eager to try!

    After struggling with the question of what to smoke while waiting for my cigars to rest or age and reading this thread: http://www.cigarforums.net/forums/vb/general-cigar-discussion/283465-resting-cigars-actually-smoking.html I have decided the we need a go-to thread for newbies like myself who...
  15. Habanos Discussion
    I have enjoyed sampling CCs and have bought a box of BRC & Upmann CMS recently because they were suggested as very good ROTT on this forum, and I do enjoy the size / flavor profile added to my mix. I have no intention or the capacity to age cigars at this time - I want to enjoy them asap. I was...

    I normally don't smoke anything from a new box immediately although received a fresh box of Illusione cg4's today and felt like having one. Anyhow, to my surprise it was just about perfect. Not wet in the least, a nice healthy and firm feel, stellar burn and a taste that would have me...

    I have an idea of what it means but dont want to use it until I know 4 sure

    Last week I picked up a box of Hemingway Signatures and they are currently sitting in my cooler resting. My question is this, are Hemingway's good to smoke ROTT (not saying, of course, that they won't possibly get better over time, just that my first experience with one won't be "bad") or am I...
  19. General Cigar Discussion
    Ok I know it seems like I'm post whoring but I just found out what ROTT means and it raised the question. Typically when I go to the B&M I get 1 for now and 1 for the humi just out of ritual. I understand the concept of resting a cigar but I see people resting for a year or more. So my question...
  20. General Cigar Discussion
    Okay, I think it's safe to say that we all know you need to rest those sticks when your shipment arrives, some longer than others. Then again, we all get impatient and don't want to wait for them too. My boss doesn't bother with aging, he just likes to buy cigars and smoke them so if I'm...
