Today’s Smoke 2019

Newb Le professional!
From 2014, these are pretty good... can’t see them aging too much longer, they are mild to begin with. So if you have Picadores, smoke them between 3 to 5 years old, or 20 plus... can’t go wrong 😊

I think you are on to something. IMHO, the 2007 PL Robustos de Larranaga RE Asia Pacific was tops from fresh-5 years. I smoked one at about 7 yrs old, while enjoyable, was not the same, had mellowed and muted out some. I found a rather enjoyable citrus acidity in them young, kind of similar to what is in many recent/current production Romeo y Julieta, along with what was a honey graham cracker like sweetness. I’ll look for what that box code was, as it was a CP split I had arranged.

Agree... one of my favorite breakfast cigars... Crazy how powerful the PLPC’s are fresh, and so mellow and sweet after 7 to 10 years...

Smoking.a Bolivar Soberano LE 2018. First stick from the box. I will definitely age this box a few years, but I wanted to have one for a point of reference. Has potential. Sweet at the start, surprisingly sweet. Then evolved into a young, earthy, cocoo, slight pepper with toasted almond.
I will try another in a few months. I was enjoying it and almost forgot to take a picture of it.

The green band Fuente 858 is one of my go-to's. I've always got a stash of those things in my fridgidor (well, bottom of a cooler at the moment). I prefer the natural to the maduro -- I'm one of the weird ones, I guess...
