I've only now started to develop the patience to lay my cigars down for a while, and I've also been looking around for cigars that have a few years on them in advance.
    I cant remember whether it was on this forum or somewhere else, but I've seen mention of the ageing process happening almost from the foot to the cap.

    I've only smoked a couple of cigars with 'proper' age on them, but if i remember correctly, they were lovely right down to the nub. So there could be some truth in that.

    Some cigars that are 20-40yrs are lush to the very butt; called nubbing, it's common with Cubans & some of our U.S. friends. I usually find the best is enjoyed before the band but usually slide it a little towards the cap & squeeze a little more pleasure of of them but green cigars certainly get bitter quicker - for me at least, one reason I like 'em well aged.

    I totally agree here. From my limited experience I have that if you smoke it fast and hard, it will turn on you!
    Iím going to study the ash, as it firm between draws to try to determine when the stick is ready for another puff.
