Got a line on some 98 El Rey de Mundo PCs.
Do not know anything about the stick except what MRN says.
.
Does anyone have any experience with this cigar...any year?

Just split a cab from '03, but haven't smoked any yet. The others I've had were from '01 and were fantastic. My favorite from this line, seems to have more flavor than the CS.

Two raving comments in 1 hour since starting the thread.
Surprized I do not hear more about this cigar.

Thanks guys.
I like the robustos and love the demis.
Will pull the trigger.

as far as that marque goes, I think you would do well to believe MRN. Just a fantastic all around line of cigars. And their popularity is not the widest out there, so there are often some nice boxes available. I guess it's all in what you are wanting, taste-wise. If you have a hinged plate in your skull designed for your love of cigars that blow off the top of your head, then you might want to pass. But they are very subtle and refined and delicious.

Thanks for you thoughts. I go for more refined than powerhouse, but do enjoy both.

just had one from a recent split. It was excellent considering they have been in transit for over a week and hadn't even had an hour to rest.

I think Trevor still has a few copies. I know they aren't cheap, but to get a first edition of a book like this is nice. And BTW, everyone talks about all of the great pictures, but I have to warn any non MRN-havin bastids, while the pics are awesome, it's mostly cubatabaco and Habanos pics, yes, the same ones you see at every vendor's site. Not realistic enough to really get the Pavlovian responses going. But it is nice to have nonetheless. As most of you know, I am a real picture guy. I figured with a collection like he is supposed to have, you'd see more of HIS boxes and maybe even a hint of the scope of his stash. All you get is hints. And the biggest drawback...he lists ALLof the cigars that are in the 21st century humidor, and shows pics of it closed, but NEVER shows what it looks like with some of the drawers open!!

The pix are cool, but it is the wealth of knowledge and experience that keeps my nose in the book on a regular basis. I like to have the vendor sites open looking at aged cigars and then see how he describes it or what he reccomends on that cigar.

Are these BM OUSU? I'd be interested in how they smoke.....

Yeah, Bruce, don't get me wrong, I LOVE my copy and would never say a negative thing about it. Even the big controversies like aging for decades and the identity of the author and stuff do not deter me. I keep it in the bathroom. nuff said on that one. My old CA magazines used to do it for me, but you can only read that crap a million times so many millions of times. Now I take a seat on the throne of knowlege, crack this 50 lb monster to a random page and re-read everything again and again. I was done with read-through #1 on Christmas Day night, lol. Oh, and to get back to your original point, I can't think of a bad RDM cigar. That cigar at that age should be a real treat. Seems to me that the flavor profile is muddy at first.
