Hey Guys, it's been a good while since I posted much here. What can I say, life has kept me busy. My wife is pregnant with our first kid, a boy. I'd like to get a box of cigars to share with him when he turns 18. What brand do you think would hold up and still be enjoyable after 18 years in the humidor? I plan on having one a year on his birthday but would like to have a couple left to introduce him to cigars when comes of age. Thanks for your thoughts an input.
Jon

I was doing the same thing with my son, but my mentor and great friend Infinity once told me, smoke your best all the time because when He's old enough to enjoy it, it will taste like shit anyways!

Granted, that wasn't the yearly smoked, but the ones saved for 18 years. To each his own though, I was just passing along hidswords of wisdom.

It will probably be easy enough to source a box that has aged well from either a fellow BOTL, at auction, or vendor as opposed to rolling the dice and picking up something now to age.

Hopefully in 18 years, legislation hasn't taken away this right.

Congratulations first of all. I bought a box of Hoyo de Dieux slb and my son turns 18 in November. He is looking forward to having one with me. Saved the whole box. Hopefully they have held up. I think I would buy whatever you like. Back when I bought them Cuban cigars were known for aging well and in fact required some age IMHO. Kind of a fun thing to do. Maybe get some nice wine With his birth year as well. Saving that of course for the legal drinking age in your state.

H. Upmann Sir Winston is a classic and it's been documented over and over that they're one of the best if not the best cigars to age. I've had the pleasure of smoking a handful of Sir Winston's that were aged 25+ years and all I can say is WOW.
