Thank you Kuzi....

...for turning me on to these. A few years ago, you said something about them being great smokes if you put a couple of years on them. At the time, I had my cabinet (plenty of space) so I decided to grab a bunch and let them age, just off your recommendation. I smoked a couple relatively fresh (2-6 months or so), and they were good. But man, after about 3 years, these are totally different cigars. Very complex, smooth, and even a little sweet. I picked up distinct notes of vanilla and caramel, along with just a little underlying spice. And they still have a nice kick, not too over powering but definitely noticeable. Thanks for the recommendation on them, man, both my palate and I heartily thank you.

    Always nice when your patience pays off! Any idea if they're still around?

    I like those a lot. They definitely fly under the radar for some reason. Very affordable, too!
