99, here's the box code(TAE CCLR). Can anyone here tell me about how the 99 JL#2 are smoking? I know IHTs had luck with his JL Petit Coronas. I ma looking at buying them in a few days.....was hoping that some of you Gorillas could let me know how these are. I know 99 was a mixed year for cigars.

Thanks :D

:rolleyes: Just kidding... please no flames.
First things first...........take your own advice. You posted a review on a cigar that has been reviewed on many occasions.

SCdH El Principe

Second you seem to be baiting people lately, me for one, IHT for another......why I don't know. But it isn't getting you anywhere. There is no respect gained by baiting people. If your doing it for kicks, I would suggest you go elswhere.

If you re-read my post, you will see that I am not looking for a review, or to even post in a current review. By the way...I've started one and posted in almost all. I am asking for info on a specific box code. Which is different the a review, which is why i started a new thread. Oh and I used the search key to see if there was any onfo before I did. Simply hoping that one of the someone good say "order these, they are smoking great" Or "stay away."

When I first saw this I was like "WTF over," but didn't say anything until I could think about it....so I'm not pissed, just tired of :BS

First review wrong. Shouldnt have posted. Didn't know that the threads went back more than a year. Second and beyond go in the threads. I'm learnin.

CT The post was just just funnin... based upon the SWF thingy IHT has I watched it was good. Far as I'm concerned you can start a thread for every post matters not but it makes sense to keep this stuff organized.

Have a good one.

P.S. check out this link anagrams

Its an anagram site went anagram crazy today coppertop->CPR to Pope

Mike,

Was doing a little research on the JL2 from 2000 and couldn't find a whole lot but I did read a couple of reviews from a cab from JUN00.

The reviews on these were excellent. The few that I read were describing them as "ON", however I'm not 100% on who the guys were who reviewed them so you really can't tell. However based on those reviews alone I would probably hit the "Add To Cart" button. They also described the wrappers as "lighter than usual, but with the same great flavor. Smooth Choco/Coffe flavor with a mellow finish".

Hope it helps a little.

As tempting as it might be to get the aged ones for smoking right away, I would consider it a far more prudent call to go with the newest ones you could find. It's just like buying wine I think, would you buy a bottle of wine from "an inferior vintage" when you could get a known hot commodity that would require patience and time to reveal it's supreior character. For me it's a no-brainer, but I like to control and witness the aging process. If you had to smoke them this year, it's prob worth a roll of the dice on an odd period in habanos history. But 03's and 04's are so spectacular, I would never personally do it. Been had too many times, on cigars that should be wonderful at 4-5 years and they are just crap. You can't cover the whole 2-3 years with a blanket statement, but when it's my money, I can sure make the call that's right for me.

I'm trying to buy 03/04 and tuck them away also. Some of them are smokeing great already, but there's no substitute for that earthy, loamy flavor of a 5 or 6 year old habanos. So, I'm also buying some aged cigars to fill that need while the rest sleep. Even though most of those "aged" cigars are coming from 98-00, which many consider questionable, I've found that they taste great. I've only had a few older than 97, so I can't offer an expert opinion, but if the current 03/04 selection are going to a lot better at 5 years than the 98-00 crops, then I will be wearing a big smile in 2010 :D

Thank you for the advice.....IHT is probably tired of hereing me talk about which box of JL#2 to buy. But unfortuantly for him, and besides everyone here, I have no one else to bounce ideas off of. I still don't know. I am waiting for a reply from a particular vendor.......so I will wait until I get a reply from them. Until then, I'll just hold off.

I did find some 03's last night, but they are bit pricey. Just wait and see. Thanks for the help all.

Yeah, you really can't beat the flavor of some of the aged JL#2's. I've only had a few but I feel that the flavor profile definitely makes the added $$$ of buying aged boxes worth it.

Its definitely harder to hold off rather than pull the trigger, especially when you're just dying for some smokes.
