I enjoy reading about what people are smoking but I'm only interested in Habanos. So, here's a thread for us to talk about what Habanos we're smoking, and of course in the Habanos section of Puff.
Please keep this to Habanos only
I'll start it off.
Saturday started with an '08 H.Upmann Coronas Major. I bought this box about 6 months ago and they weren't that good at the time, looks like 6 months in my humidor has helped as this one was much better than the last. After that I moved on to an '08 Juan Lopez Seleccion No.2. These are quickly becoming one of my favorite smokes, put an order in for two boxes today in fact. Cigar number three was supposed to be an '08 Juan Lopez Seleccion No.1, this cigar was so badly plugged that after fighting with it for 10 minutes I did an autopsy (it was so tightly wrapped it was like a brick inside, not to mention the several pieces of stem - by far the worst stick construction wise that I've ever had). So after suffering through that my real cigar number three became an '08 PLPC.
Sunday was an '07 Epi #2 and another '08 Juan Lopez #2. Mmm mmm good.
Partagas Habaneros - No, it's not peppery. The name means it's from Havana. That's it. That's all.
And a Montecristo Media Corona - I get the feeling they blended these to make sure they're different than the H. Upmann Half Coronas more so than they did to fit the classic Montecristo profile. Decent, but not as good as an HHC. Nor as good as the Monte #5 that they were purportedly going to replace, either in the Montecristo line or, at least, in most customer's humidors.
Just cracked another box (4x4) of Tapados and I'm a little shocked. Beautiful wrapper, perfect draw, classic Cuban flavor profile. These are ERM ABR 22's, just barely over a year old, and this first one is arguably among the best Vegueros I've ever smoked. Still sitting on a few unopened tins of 2014's and 15's. But maybe it's the 22's I should be hoarding!
