stephen_hannibal:rott... lolThe shorty is a great cigar at any time.
docbp87:I've never smoked a Shorty with any real rest or time on it, but the UHC gets significantly smoother after 6-8 months.
The Sniper:I guess Im going to be the voice of dissent here - I noticed a marked improvement in the Shorty relating to how long I rested it. Smoked one after about a month in the humi - couldnt stand it! Ammonia-ey, burn issue after burn issue... damned things were so bad I got rid of the rest of the ten pack by giving it away to a fellow BOTL here on the forums.
Or so I thought - was rummaging thru teh humidors a few months later, and what do I find buried at the bottom but a Diesel Shorty? Almost tossed it out of hand, then thought what the he11 and sparked it up - what a difference! The ammonia was now chocolately goodness, and the burn was straight as an arrow.
Something to take into consideration also is that I bought those Shorty's RIGHT when they first came out, which may explain the ammonia and burn issues. Still, my advice is this is just like the UHC's - the longer you age em, the better they are!
