    Favorites of the Bolivar Line?

    I've got boxes of PC from '08 and '09, and BBF from '08 (two boxes), and both are outstanding. I have smoked a couple of the CE's, and while they were good, they were not anywhere near the PC or BBF. I haven't had anything from '10 yet, so I can't speak to if they are up to par or not.

    Problems with CC 's and customs

    Ditto, got 2 boxes last week with no issues.

    Best cc right out of the box.

    Had a Boli BF from NOV 08 two nights ago, and it was pretty darn good. I know that's not super fresh, but it's fairly fresh. I usually have good luck with them when they are on the young side.

    Where should a CC virgin start?

    Bolivar PC is a great smoke. I've had some from '08 and '09, and they smoked great. Dip. #4 is another favorite of mine, but not quite as smooth as the Boli. Aaron

    Cigars Damp?

    I was having similar problems with some of my cigars, particularly cigars with darker wrappers. I brought my RH from 69-70 down to 65-66, and all my burn problems went away. I was amazed at how much difference just a few points of change in RH had on the way a cigar smoked. I now keep all my...

    Built in Wall Humidor - First time project

    LOL exactly! My wife has family in Ohio and when we go visit them, I stand in the full sized basements and think 'oh what I could do down here!' Nice work on the humidor!

    Bolivar Petit Corona, Montecristo #4

    Well, I decided to try another #4 against my better judgement. To my pleasant surprise, it is really good! Smoking it right now with a glass of Mac 12, and I'm happy to find out that I may have just had a bad one last time. They still need some time I think. I had every intention of not...

    Triple Cap?

    I was in a similar situation a few months ago. A buddy came back from Houduras with 1/2 box of Cohibas. While I was doubtful about the authenticity, I didn't say anything, and smoked one with him. It wasn't the worst cigar I ever smoked, but not as good as it should have been, even though it was...

    If you're upgrading to a bigger humidor...

    Wow. That is an impressive collection of cigars you have there.

    Cohiba Siglo VI Gran Reserva

    Nice score man. What are you going to drink when you smoke one of those bad boys?

    finished my cabinet

    Good job on the cabinet, and I'm extremely jealous of your smoking room. We are looking at houses right now and one of my criteria is a room that is already or can easily be made smoke-friendly. Nice work!

    Hoyo Epicure Especial & Mac 30

    LOL exactly what I was thinking! But, who wants a camera when you can be drinking that scotch! Haha

    Bolivar Petit Corona, Montecristo #4

    Yeah the Boli's have a really great complexity and full body taste. I haven't been smoking much in the last week or so, I hope to mix a few new smokes in the near future. I'm sure I will find others I enjoy, but the Boli's are at the top of my list for sure. I want to age some of the PC's but...

    Today's Smoke II

    Bolivar PC with a glass of Blanton's bourbon.

    I have a box of Boli PC's from March of '08 that are smoking great right now. I want to keep some for a couple of years, but it's going to be tough. I can't imagine them tasting much better than they do right now.

    Bolivar Petit Corona, Montecristo #4

    LOL mango was not quite what came to mind with the #4. Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. The RyJ short Churchill and partagas series P no 2 have been on my list for the last few months. I'll try to mix some of the others in as well. Had another Boli PC last night, and it was just as...

    Bolivar Petit Corona, Montecristo #4

    That makes sense, thanks. We'll see how the rest of them smoke. A buddy of mine has a couple of Monte #2's, I'm going to try and talk him out of one of them and see how it tastes compared to the #4.

    Bolivar Petit Corona, Montecristo #4

    I managed to get my hands on 1 box each of Bolivar PC and Monte #4 a few weeks ago. Thus far I have smoked 2 of each, and let me just say this: the Bolivars have been the two best cigars I have ever smoked in my life. WOW! They literally tasted good enough to eat. It's going to be tough to hold...

    Today's Smoke II

    Yeah they are! And I can get them in bulk at Costco here in Austin, so I don't have to pay $2 for one a gas station.
