Vintage 1988

I found this the other day going through my humidor and thought about saving it longer, but ultimately decided to smoke it that day. I don’t know about you guys, but I think it’s very possible to overage a mellow cigar. Any cigar kept properly can last forever, but I find that too much age on an inherently mellow cigar can subdue it too much. Thoughts?

    I have 3 1993 vintage left out of a box. I’ve had them for a very long time. Aging has been kind to them, as I have had them in a very good humidor since I bought them. I don’t remember when I acquired them but it’s been probably 20 years or so. Some sticks I bought around the same time have not done as well, even though they were in the same drawer. These Jamaica’s have become more complex and smooth over the years. I’d love to try an 88.

    Other than getting the humidity level just right for the cigar to stay in the humidor, I wonder what effect aging really has on flavor. It might be a neat topic for one of your future posts or discussions. If you took 2 identical cigars, one, relatively fresh out of the box (with the right humidity level) and one that had been aged, say, 5 or 6 years in the humi, what would the taste comparison be?
