Thanks to the generosity of a member of another forum, I have a box of 22, 2003 JLP Cazadores.

Will be trying my first one of the box this afternoon.

Place your bets on what they will be like.

Completely flavorless?

Extremely mild, but with some flavor?

Much improved with age?

Etc.

Much improved with age

last year of the old type tobacco.

20 years is not too long to age a stick.

cigars from the late 90s can still be amazing.

My experience with aged Cigars has been very hit or miss.

All came from others, with unknown storage conditions, so that may be why

So, smoked one yesterday afternoon and it was very surprising.

Extremely flavorful still, but much smoother than young ones, and only a little bit milder taste-wise.

I have read multiple opinions on aging and most say that a cheap/low end Cigar wont get any better with age, but these certainly did.

It was one of the best aged Cigars I have ever had.

Definitely glad I have 21 more.

Burn was pretty crappy and even after using my PerfecDraw, it was still very tight.

But the excellent taste over rode all that.

Also had no hint even of the cardboard boxes they were stored in for 18 years. Was very afraid it would have picked up a cardboard taste based on what I have read, but it didn't at all.
