What did you smoke today? HABANOS ONLY.

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.

Re: What did you smoke today? HABANOS ONLY.

Sunday night I smoked a jlp p.caz while walking my dog, had a little more strength than I like for the situation (walking with no beverage to cleanse the pallet). Tonight's planned dog walk cigar is a ryj millefleur. I have become a fan of the small corona sizes lately and can see my next order having some scdlh el.principe, monty 5's and fdc pc's in it.

Smoked a RASCC with my Saturday morning coffee out on the deck; it's such a great "morning coffee cigar" IMHO. All the rest of my weekend smokes were NCs so... yeah.

Had a great Monte #2 on Saturday afternoon (paired with Coke Zero) and then later that night a HdM Epicure #2, paired up with Aberlour A'bunadh single malt Scotch. It rained all day Sunday here so I didn't get a chance to have anything yesterday at all. Hoping to remedy this today.;

I wish I could smoke HdM Epi#2s daily, but unfortuately I've only got a 15 pk, so I've got to stretch them out for a while.

Truth be told I didn't enjoy it much beyond the first third. It had a magnificent aroma and burned straight as an arrow but it just didn't do anything for me. I bought a fiver of these (June 200 online from another forum so maybe they were stored poorly or something; but honestly, it was slightly disappointing. I couldn't pick out any individual notes like I can with my Upmann Mag 46s or Boli RCs, and the volume of smoke was minimal. Perhaps a high-humidity smoking environment may have played havoc with it?

Re: What did you smoke today? HABANOS ONLY.

Last evening I smoked an El Rey del Mundo Tainos that was 12 years old. I received in a trade about two years ago. It was from 1998. At first it seemed very mild, with a very light floral flavor. After an inch or so, it picked up a little bit of sweet spiciness and light hints of a peppery spice. At this point the flavor profile was still very mild overall, with very little strength. Through the 2nd third the strength picked up to maybe medium, but the flavor profile stayed fairly mild. Mostly floral and sweet spices and only hints of a peppery spice. The final third started to pick up a bit of stronger flavors, more sweet spices and more peppery hits. The floral notes were gone at this point. This was a very pleasant and mostly mild smoke. I enjoyed it quite a bit for what it was, but hardly worth a 12 year wait to smoke!
