This is a discussion on My First LP #9 within the Smoking Action forums, part of the The Gallery category; I smoked my firat LP9 today at the Oktoberfest Herf in Anaheim. Now I understand why these things are so ...
maybe one of the more experienced LP smokers can validate this, but i seem to remember hearing that they really don't need a ton of age on them.
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.
Had my first LP9 robusto around New Years last year. I also bought the 4 pack sampler and just couldn't wait to smoke one.It was a good smoke but think it would have benifitted from a little more time in the humidor.I've been holding on to the other 3 sizes for about a year now and can't wait to light one up and see what they taste like.
