    Very helpful. I’ve heard mostly negative reviews.

    I should have added that the negative reviews were of HdM Hermosos No 4 specifically. These Anejado series seems a bit overpriced in general, but I have enjoyed the Partagas Coronas Gordas…

    I have a box of Romeo y Julieta Piramides Anejados and I share a common feeling expressed by many, that they are nice cigars but I doubt I would pay the high price again. I get as much pleasure from other non Anejados cigars that cost less

    i think this cigar is a bit of a let down when you have the likes of the Epicure No 2 or even the Petit Robusto are finer smokes, especially given the price tag. I didn’t mind the cigar, it was good, but not amazing. i agree with review on this above. The cigar just seems to be missing something.
    The Partagas on the other hand, if it is treated like a Partagas and in relation to classic Partagas flavours is a let down. However, treated as a new cigar is rather enjoyable. still, is it worth the price? i don’t think so.
    My thinking is that perhaps the Anejados series were old vitolas which didn’t sell too well and were kept in their boxes for the purpose of being the Anejados line?

      Unlikely, Matt.

      I am in Cuba (Cayo Coco), on my balcony, smoking a Juan Lopez No. 2 looking over the ocean. I picked this baby up at the LCDH on the resort. Which carries a box of Montecristo Churhill Anajedos boxed in 07. No Churchill existed at that time under this marquee as far as I know. Wish I knew how to post a pic to this reply. Though, I’d hate to make a BOTL jealous… ;) Happy puffing brother!

    I recently took a cruise I and purchased a couple of boxes of Good Cuban Cigars. I purchased one of these Hiya De Monterey’s and found it to be as close to perfection as possible. Beautifully rolled, wonderful color and the draw was consistent. While relaxing with a glass of scotch I was taken back with not only the flavor of the cigar but also the aroma of the massive amount of smoke. I would asked everyone to put this cigar on their must try list. I promise you will enjoy it.

    I just returned from Havana and picked up a box of HDM Anejados. They are fantastic. The price in old Havana is about $9 per stick which is expensive for cigars there but a great price overall. The wrapper is beautiful oily dark brown — like a Maduro. In fact, I toured the H. Upmann factory and watched the boxing of the new Partagas Maduros and the wrappers look identical. I find this cigar relatively strong and somewhat spicy. It has that wonderful creaminess found in great Cuban cigars. I am a big fan of this smoke.

    Having picked up a box in Feb. 2018 (HDM H.No.4 Anejados), was disappointed after a month in the humidor, as they were very dry (crumbly tobacco after cap cut), burned terribly and the taste was off. After being in humidor 4+ months, they ‘rehydrated’ and the burn was now remarkable, as well as the taste and aroma improving incredibly. Having obtained these for a solid price (right at 260 GBP) I would not be inclined to purchase again, nor recommend to any friend. There are many cigars that are far better for the price, even if you have to wait for them to age a few years.
    The “Anejados” across the range, need to be price corrected, lest we see them continue to sit on Stockists shelves as they have tended to do…
    Would rate the varieties of ‘Anejados’ i’ve tried as Good to Very Good but certainly not Excellent, nor Outstanding, especially for the price. Some are well over 300 GBP.
