Yeah! Signature Cigars in Rockville is known for selling the Pinar line. Smoked a couple ot rhe original Pinars when they first came out (a few years ago). Yup, exact same experience & I didn't enjoy them at all.

i once tasted a pinar 3000XXX, and it sucked 3000%

granted it was free, and i had to listen to the salesman's tale of it's origins and cuban pre-embargoness.

i will stick to post embargo!!!

i believe jr.s in manhatan had these in there humi, and they were fairly cheap.
the guys that bought and smoked them said they were pretty bad. :pu .50 years is a bit too old for a cigar i think a bit past there prime if there ever wwas a prime for these.

Tim, I think you are referring to the pre-embargo Flor de farachs at JR.
Smoked one and tasted moldy :pu

As for the Pinars, It's hard to believe that the tobacco is that old. Too strong to be 50+ y/o tobacco, not that I've smoked a lot of old tobacco.

:al i may be confused smoko, maybe it wasnt the pinar at jr.s but i did hear somewhere though that someone had these pinars fairly cheap,i do remember them being around. but heard they werent any good..guess i should get my facts straight...ive had some decent and still strong cigars from 80,81, etc..but never tried anything older then 25 years, i cant imagine how they could be any good it would seem they would have past there peak.
