    thats for certain. Nothing different to a good CdP wine. Most are really tasty after bottling, but most are more than delicious with 15 years on them.

    I'd agree with Emaresee on the Por Larranaga petit corona and San Cristobal El Principe. Both nice without needing much age.

    Cool You Make Me Sick!


    3 Not allowed!

    Regarding young sticks, a primary difference between NC and CCs is when they are brought to market. NCs are rarely sold during the “sick period,”* which is when a cigar begins to ferment (again) after rolling due to the moisture applied to the wrapper. In general, the sick period begins within weeks of rolling and lasts about one year. CCs, on the other hand, are often sold during the sick period.

    Now, some of the so-called aficionados around these parts claim some recent production puros are ready to go sooner than a year, but as a Coro Rule, I never purchase a box with less than a year.

    But that’s just me, I guess...

    Probably more to do with supply and demand still being the relative newcomers?

    Also creates a market for the special, limited, regional editions they do hold.

    Regional distributors however may hold onto stock for years. As may some local retailers!

    When Habanos do, they invented Anejados edition. Aged in boxes.

    Some boxes are in retail from 3 months of boxing.

    All I know is NC seem to be held for years before hitting distribution channels. But I don't know specifics.
