Huh, well thats perplexing.

I've kept everything you sent in its own tupperdor since i got them, or so i thought at least.

Wonder if i somehow stuck an oddball in there simply because it was a well aged nc as well.

No idea how i got a date for it, as typically I have no real idea from a generous gifter beyond them saying "its at least x years old as best i can recall", so the rough age range is typically in the notes of my humidor app and i pick the middle of the range as the specific date.

Oh well, snuck through the cracks somehow, probably at my end, as you sent pretty meticulous notes with yours.

Still worthy of a review anyway really at least, imho.

Sorry about calling you to someone else's review, lol

I do have a suspicion of where i would have gotten such a well aged Hemingway- Kevin Gill (CFL) from CF that I'm sure you remember well, and although he typically gives me some nicely aged Fuentes and Newmans on occasion, he never knows more than a very rough, possible age, with anything from his stash, and i typically put his name in my app notes, and this entry has nothing. Weird.

If you enjoy them young, then you'll enjoy your 2009's

Like i mentioned, if someone hadn't told me the age, i would have definitely assumed it was recent production. Very full of richness, body and flavor still for sure, and unusually aromatic. It got a perfect score in the taste and aroma sections, which are the only places it didn't lose at least a few points for one reason or another.

I wouldn't be surprised if these could go another 12 years and still not have mellowed too much or be passed their prime.

If anything, they could use another 10 years to mellow them out and see how the fainter flavors that are currently overpowered come to the surface more as the stronger current flavors tone down some.

I friggin love cigars
