I cant speak for Tat broadleaf 'broadly'(lol) as I only have experience with Tatuaje Casita Criolla(which have gotten way better with age IMO)That’s funny, I would almost completely agree with him. Tat broadleaf hits its peak around 2 years in most cases. The ‘17 TAA is amazing right now!

But I was mostly talking about the Hererra Esteli and Illusione Epernay. I've found that fresh from the box, both are good. However they get way better with age!
I first found this, when i compared a epernay from around 2015 or so, to a box I had bought in 2016. The 2015 with the year of age was way better. A year later in 2016, my 1 year aged epernay were comparable I found. But, YMMV. The same experience has occured with the Hererra estelli, amongst other blends. IMO NC cigars tend to get more smooth a little more mild, and a lot more complex with age.
