    Only a few NC's last year, the 1960's Jamaican's being by far the best. I never buy NC's but get gifted a few, I smoke them during Lent, along with Cubans that cost me E5 or less. Never found an NC I wanted to buy having tried it, I have had some that were OK but no, not to my taste. And yes I do make basic notes for each cigar & score them, recording it in my diary & then later typing it up into my spreadsheets.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I sometimes do score when i smoke when i can remember. But its a simpler system, 90 means i'd buy a box and everything is +/- from there. A not nice tasting stick might be in the 70's.

    I think I may finally have this CAD under control...

    Ah, but if we only smoked our best cigars all the time, they would become 'ordinary', having them occasionally (along with many good smokes), let's us appreciate their finer qualities.

    Agreed PJ, but perhaps when you are in your Man cave smoking a 6" NC, you'll have time to glance over it?

    Seems a good enough system to me Banos. I start with the premise a Monte No4 is an 80pts, (being that it was the biggest selling Habanos when I started), so it's how much better or worse the latest cigar is compared with the Monte No4. I can't say I'd rush out & buy a box of my high scoring smokes, often they are one off's, singles I have collected with a lot of age but I certainly am looking for a box of Trova & even the laFlordeCano ER 2016, if I can find them at a reasonable price.

    NC don't appear to be to Simon's taste at all.

    See you've bashed a PSdC3 at rated 93 Si, no SdC1s yet?
    If you want to, you can.
    And, if you can, you must!

    Hi Arf, so good to hear from you. No, haven't tried your No1's yet but that was one of your PSdC3's. I smoked it in the main harbour square in Lisbon, on summer hols back in May. It was a stunning smoke & I noted in my diary I was still thinking about it 2 days later! Hope the rest of the 3's are as good. 20 of last years cigars were from your collection & everyone was tickety boo.
    I hope you are in fine fettle & enjoy a healthy 2019.
