Vintage smokes

Last year I showed some vintage cigars that I have... I guess it's time to show some more.

From left to right you can see the following:
  • 1994 - The 1994s have been in a special humidor, which has been released in 1994, 502 humidors have been made in total. It's part of something which some cigar smokers call the "Holy Trinity" (the other two are the 1492 and the Cubatobacco 25). Luckily I´d the chance in the past to get a handful of those.
  • Davidoff Dom Perignon from 1987 - One of the most famous Davidoffs, hard to get nowadays...
  • Don Candido 501 from the late 70s - One of the Dunhill Exclusive brands was Don Candido, which was stopped in 1982. The 501 is a Lonsdale sized cigar.
  • Dunhill Tubo from the early 80s - The Dunhills have been discontinued in the year 1991. Everybody who ever smoked a Dunhill will agree with me, that it's really a pity that those cigars are no longer in production.

  1. Some great cigars. I've never had such rare, old cigars, but they look great.

  2. In most cases it´s a question of the price... and if they´re worth it for you... or not.

    Luckily there are some sources where you can find rare and old stuff from time to time..

  3. H - the Dunhill line was started in 1982, so that Tubo is probably early 80's instead of late 70's.

    I've not had the Estupendo or Havana Club, but the Tubo is my favorite by far of the remaining line.

  4. Thx for the info, Greg, I corrected it...
