Rambling Session - Aged Cigars (03/05/2024)

This morning I smoked an OG Piggy Smalls from Julian Sued Tabac. I have never had the original release, but LOVED the latest release. Not to mention I love Edgar’s blending. This one certainly did not disappoint! I also should note that I received this one from a customer who decided to send me some stuff. Awh shucks!

I believe the Piggy Smalls was originally released in 2020, which makes this cigar 3-4 years old. It is the third oldest cigar I got in this package… I also received a HVC Black Friday 2019 (I loved that blend) and a Cuban from the 1980s… 

Are you one for aging cigars?

Personally, I never put much time or effort into aging cigars. However, it is a very common topic and people in the cigar community really dig aged cigars. 

I liken aged cigars to limited edition cigars, in that they are cool, hip, and exciting. However, they’re also not something I get riled up about. Sure it is exciting to see that dark brown cello or see how a cigar has changed over time, but for me, it's not as exciting as finding that regular production cigar that you can continually buy throughout the years and enjoy it as is. 

I do not intentionally age anything for that reason. I want to taste the cigar for what the blender intended it to taste like. I have personally judged a regular production cigar off of an aged single I had, and then was disappointed when I ended up overbuying more of them based on that experience. 

Anyways, that’s just me.

Take care,
