14 and 18 are my favorite blends. Haven't tried the 20 yet though.

I voted for 14 first because past history has shown that these have all needed about 6 months to really shine so maybe the 20 isn't quite ready yet?

Start recent and work backwards - I know a few folks have noted that recent years haven’t been as great, several have said that 2015 is the best of them, and the 2014 I smoked a couple weeks ago was great

you will pick up on subtle age differences, and see the greatest gap in the last two.

I'd start with 20 as it will be reminder to let any cigar marinate for at least 3 years. Set aside 14 for last, and then go random draw for the rest. It adds the element if surprise haaha. Whatever way its going to be am awesome weekend for you. Let us know your thoughts on the years. Enjoy!

2020 first and work your way backwards. I’ve heard nothing but amazing reviews of the 2014 LC, just didn’t come around here in time a year later to get my hands on one. Although, if I read correctly, the la imperiosa was closest clone to the 2014 LC blend.

About the imp - I loved the LC14 the first time I smoked it and I loved it when I smoked it a few weeks ago, but the LI is nothing like the original LC imo - remember how it was so devastating to the flippers when they came out with the LI, and Huber came out and said it’s not the same because he didn’t recreate the vitola? I think he was right, it’s def not the same.

On a completely unrelated note, my newish phone just tried to autocorrect “vitola” to “Corolla” lol

Well that would put the whole debate to rest. I still love the La Imperiosa still anyway.

Don’t get me wrong, they say it’s the same blend and I believe them, but it just doesn’t taste the same in a different vitola. At least not to me anyway
