I swear I used the search, but couldn't find much about this discussed here....

I've been a serious hobbyist for a couple years, still lots of brands I have yet to try.  In your experience, what cigars have aged well/have the potential to age well? 

I deal mostly in the world of NC's, so I'd like to keep it limited to that.  I would like to set up a 2nd tupperdor specifically for the purpose of aging/prolonged rest (I know, I know, this is getting into that rest/age/acclimation grey area, don't want to open Pandora's box lol).  I'm talking 2-5 years of intentional aging/rest/whatever we wanna call it.  I will store this tupperdor at my office where it is 70-72 degrees 365 days a year, with 65% bovedas.

My plan is to lay down the following and see what happens:

CAO Amazon Basin

CAO Amazon Anaconda

CAO Fuma Em Corda

My Father Le Bijou

Viaje Birthday Blend

Camacho Corojo 

Oliva V

Oliva V Melanio

Ramon Bueso Genesis Project

Padron 2000 Maduro

Arturo Fuente Anejo

Arturo Fuente Sun Grown 858 

 

....Anything else that is worth experimenting with in your experience?

 

Thanks in advance!

I would add AF Hemingway series Maduro. I've had a short story with about 5 years on it and it was outstanding!

Also any of the padron 2000,3000,4000,

Le Bijou's age extremely well, as do any of the Padron 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000 and 6000.

Pinar del Rio sticks age amazingly well, turns em into a completely different cigar for me.

Enjoy!

Hemingway's age beautifully, I smoked one with a bit more than 2 years and it was great.

Most Viajes tend to peak at 5 years, so plan on smoking that one in 3 or 4 years. (They won't be bad, but just not as good)

Set up the tupperdor last night and brought it in to work with me this morning. So far I have all of the above in there marinating.

Planning on scooping up some Short Story's to add to the mix. Never tried the maduro, but I do enjoy the naturals. I had one over the summer that was about 10 years old, it was smooth as butter. I don't think I'll be waiting that long, but it sure was nice!
