    I'm still kicking myself for smoking that Bolivar you sent me. I smoked it at the beginning of my cigar journey so I probably didn't fully appreciate it....:bangin:

    They don't keep forever. It was probably past it's prime anyhow.

    The smaller cigars peak earlier than the larger ones. The punch DCs and some other large format Cubans are still excellent from 10 years ago or so. The smaller formats have lost their bite imo.

    Sorry guys, but I have to disagree. Smaller format cigars, in my opinion, age just as good as larger formats, such as DC's, Churchills, ect. I've smoked my share of cigars from the 70s, 80s, and early 90s. Partagas 898s from the 80s are strong as hell, Bolivar PCs also seem to keep their strength just fine too. I smoked an Upmann No. 2 from 1990 that was very strong, more so than fresh ones. Another good example is the ERDM Tainos, those are light and fairly boring when they are young cigars. Smoke a Tainos from the 80s and get back to me on that because they are very different cigars, strong, earthy and really to many collectors around the world, it's the best churchill with serious age. A buddy of mine recently smoked a Bolivar Demi Tasse from 2001. Very small cigar, but packs a major punch even with 12 years of age. Again, my two cents here, YMMV.

    I dunno. I was lying, just trying to make old GlassSculptor feel better about squandering a darn near priceless stick. :rofl:

    Had an AB Retreat this morning. This a mild smooth cigar with lots of character and flavor. I'm on my second box of these right now.

    Marker, I have been going through all of the AB line lately and out off all of them, so far these are my favorite. I just ordered a fiver of the Prensado churchill, one I still haven't had. Been waiting for the whole 2012 CA cigar of the year thing to blow over.

    Did you have the pryme? That was another I missed. Otherwise the black market was my least favorite of the AB I have had.

    I have not even heard of that one Marker. But I TOTALLY agree with you on the Black Market. Man what a let down. I need to find someone I don't like and send them to him :xd:

    Haven't got these figured out yet. A most singular cigar indeed, my dear Watson. I'm not sure if they just haven't settled down yet or what. Not bad , just... singular. Unusual, to be sure. Hoyo's are weird.

    You're the first to catch it. I read it later and couldn't change it. It's April here as well.
