    Don't suck!


    These seemed to have been stored very well.

    Wrapper is a nice dark tan.
    Cap lightly clipped found a great draw.
    Very little 'musty old cigar'....and I mean VERY LITTLE.

    You just know it's old. No fowlness at all.

    Ash is white and dark...very distinct.

    Smooth tobacco flavor the leads the palette to 'want'.

    Typical punch 'dryness'. (That's how it is to me.) Not harsh at all.

    I don't normally 'nose' a cigar...but this is wonderful.

    Lite fruit abounds.

    He bought the box as a 40th birthday present to himself when it was a new box code :sign:


    PS: Rare that you didn't get that "musty basement" smell & taste to it. Like you said, it was stored properly....that's great that it tasted so good, the way it should be!

    Vintage cigars are the next stop on the slippery slope of compulsive cigar buying.
    Do yourself (and your wallet) a favor and don't ask! :p
