Yes, I agree . But it will be worth it. Or you can smoke one now and let the others sit. I've been resting a 10 pack of 9s for 2 years and I have to exercise a lot of self control to not grab one every time I walk past my humidor
True. According to them, they are good to go and aged to when they feel they will be best. But, as with most cigars, some people prefer more rest and some will prefer aging them for a few years. Its all up to you. Best way to know is to try a fresh one and rest a couple. If you like the direction they are heading, give them a bit more rest until you find a 'sweet spot' where you like them the most. For me, I have no 9 pigs that I will still age even though they are over 3 years old. But thats just me. I also like the fresh so I will age some and smoke others.
This is why I love to buy boxes, I always smoke one right away, then 1 every 3to 6 months till I find the "sweet spot". And the great thing with LP's in my experience is a great adventure with Every box, 9's especially but recently got a box of unico feral pigs, excited to see how they progress with rest.
Archun. New to the difference between "aging" and "rest". My guess is you are talking in terms of time? Or is it something else? Thanks. TCB
Yes, its a matter of time, but I didn't want to go into detail because its been discussed in hundreds of threads.
Basically, depends on what each believes, but we could say 0 to 1 year would be resting, and anything over a year would be Aging...Some people say aging is above 2 or 3 years, anyways.
And for what I've read written by Steve Saka, former President of Drew Estate (and LP mastermind)is that all Liga Privada cigars are already been rested for 2 or 3 years when they're released and are already at their peak, so no need of aging any longer, only resting is suggested to let them get back to normal after shipping.
According to some other LP enthusiasts, Liga Privada actually decreases when Aging. Since I've been smoking Ligas for about a year, I have not yet tried any over that period of time so I couldn't say.
