1999 Cigar Help

DirtyJinxDirtyJinx Posts: 3

Hello all,

I was born in 1999 and this year I will be 25. To celebrate, I would like to find a cigar released in '99 that is the original release. To smoke a cigar as old as I would be a great way to celebrate this year. I would prefer to stay true to form and find a Broadleaf or Maduro, really anything dark, though I am not too picky seeing as my requirements are rather narrow. If anyone could point me in the right direction to find a few that would be amazing.

Thank you!

    I’ll do a little research, but broadleaf might be a stretch. That was around the time it was just starting to be used.

    This makes me curious... I didn't start with cigars until 2014 and have heard about the boom in the 90's and how demand was so high that the market was flooded with a bunch of crap toward the end of that decade. How hard will it be to find a cigar that was released in that era that not only survived until now, but is also a decent smoke?

    I can't imagine you will find a cigar from 1999 that has held up, especially a Maduro. Would be like smoking air, but if you want to prove a point good luck.

    I would try the L'Atelier La Mission 1999

    Not a fan favorite around here, but the members with a good palette enjoy it

    There is a Rocky Patel 1999, but I think it's Connecticut. It's not broadleaf. I saw an interesting YouTube video the other day where a guy repaired a broken cigar using the wrapper from a cigar he sacrificed. Involved wetting the victim down, removing its wrapper and wrapping that around the broken one. He used fruit pectin to seal it. It might be neat and memorable for you to "wrap" your own cigar.

    The obstacle is the way.

    @Rdp77 rolls his own from scratch... There is also a thread about it in this cigar 101 discussion somewhere. We used to have a couple of guys who rolled quite a bit.
