Over the last few days I have received two Cigars from two different people which I am thankful for.
I have written some of my thoughts that were conveyed in my video blog post below:
Montecristo Open - Master
Launched in 2009, the Montecristo Open series has been aimed squarely at the novice smoker. Early reviews of the whole range had been at best lukewarm. However, word has spread that because of the poor sales of the Open series, that there is plenty of aged stock to be had. And the good news is that the first production of the Montecristo Open series between 2009 and early 2010 have started to smoke well.
When I heard this news, I decided that I had to revisit the Open series, and smoke for myself to find out if this is the truth or not. Luckily enough, I was put in touch with a fellow brother of the leaf who was happy to trade two Montecristo Open Master with myself for two other Cuban Cigars.
I'm looking forward in positing a little review of the Montecristo Open Master and posting it here on the website in the forthcoming weeks.
Cohiba - Piramides - Limited Edition 2001
The second Cigar I've received is the Cohiba Piramides, the Limited Edition for 2001. Many thanks goes to Steve Murray, AKA SerieSteve who runs the Aye Aye Reviews website and Youtube Channel for sending the Cohiba down my way.
I'm drooling at the thought of smoking this Cigar. I've never tried any of the Limited Editions from the early years of the programme. This will be an experience that I am looking forward to immensely.
