Havana 2015 – Vintage Cohiba Lanceros With Jose And Reza

18 Mar

nfc capIt’s dangerous enough to open your cigar caddy in Havana around friends – but you open it with Reza around and you can expect the contents to be immediately “socialised” … no defence admitted.

Having Reza and Jose from El Laguito over at my Casa I passed the two cigars from MRN’s vintage tasting to Reza as he had not been able to attend but was gracious enough to inform me ahead.

So while giving him the two cigars he notices the Cohiba Lanceros in Cellophane from the 80’s and snatches them, passing one to Jose.

Not even Keith, my “Buddha” Bodyguard could assist me, Reza doesn’t take No for an answer, not even for a suggestion … 🙂

Jose couldn’t believe his eyes – he was absolutely impressed and in love with the stick, so much so that he vowed to never smoke it and place it in his cigar shrine at home.

Rubbish, we said, you smoke that cigar and you smoke it now, there’s more so no worries.

So Jose smoked the Cohiba and almost had tears in his eyes from all the satisfaction it gave him. Deeply impressed and praising its qualities in the highest terms – like so many Cubans even in the cigar industry, he’s never smoked such an aged cigar before.

It was a pleasure to watch his happiness and the bliss that cigar gave him.

    So I am guessing I am not “Budda” Keith Hahhaaha,

    Love those old Cello Cohibas, had a few over the years. My experience has always been good. Great write up.
    Will have to head down to Antwerp!

      Yeah, share your love for the old cello Lanceros.

      Not sure you will find them in Antwerp, not if I manage to keep my cigar caddy locked and away from that Belgian pirate … 🙂

      Gotta keep the Keith’s apart – the Canuck Keith received “Buddha” as a nickname at Lung Kong society in Havana’s Chinatown last year and that is how he’s known to us now.

      You Sir are “Commander” Keith as befits you, Sir 🙂

      Happy Landings !

    LOL. Wiseasses!!!

    Reza was definitely a hoot, and Jose was flying well above Cloud 9.
