  1. Wondering about this thread . i never stash partial boxes ... once I open a box it lasts me about a year ( twice as long for cabs of 50 ) . Then it is gone . i said that so I can say this ... I have never tried a box of cigars that I thought was over the hill yet ... I have tried boxes of the same pedigree over a 25 year period ( say a box every 5 years all identical box codes ) . maybe it's just me and what I like ... or ... maybe this whole thread is more a comment on how cigars should be stored for the long run ( or smoked after cracking the seals ) . then again maybe I don't know what I am talking about . derrek
  2. In China someplace by now I imagine ... or Russia or ??? derrek
  3. Yes the odd plugged cigar ( maybe one a year ) but never had a whole box that doesn't perform . maybe I have lower than normal expectations but I find almost all of my cigars (strength and flavours and balance wise ) are somewhere between magnificent and fabulous . but then (as has been said already) ... if you don't get a dud every year or so ... how can you tell that you smoke great cigars all other days ??? derrek
  4. @planetary Trouble with this is ... one persons trash is another mans treasure ... or ... your 99 point smoke only rates 89 to me . derrek
  5. @Canoli dont be worried about cigars fading away at only 20 years . i open up boxes of cigars I bought 20 or 25 years ago quite regularly ... I have yet to find an "expired" box of cigars . i believe it all has to do with storage ... buy em fresh and age ... I would not buy older cigars that somebody else aged ( but that's just me ) . derrek
  6. 1492/1992 cubatabaco grand corona . Second best cigar I have had ( after a humble but perfect bolivar corona ) . derrek
  7. That would be these ... 5 or 6 or 7 years ago seems about when I got em . thanks shlomo derrek
  8. Related to this discussion yet different quandary ... I will just add it to this thread . years ago I got four bottles of these ( noellas ) ... no date code on the cedar lid ... anybody got an idea what the date/box code is for these ( I think ) first release noellas. been a long time since I got em and my old man memories suck ... still have yet to smoke one . derrek
  9. Pardon me ... 160$cuc was only out by a 1 no idea if there is fake topes out derrek
  10. Socialists sell Trinidad topes for 60$cuc a box capitalists sell Trinidad topes for 313 chf a box derrek
  11. Bingo !!! derrek
  12. Nothing is sacred !!! as little emotion involved in opening a box from '09 or from '89 . same with finishing a box off !!! derrek
  13. At my sons wedding ... 85 guests and 22 of 25 cigars were smoked from a box of Partagas coronas juniors ( had more ready if they were needed) . yes ... they were popular and now you should know about how many cigars to bring vs number of guests . they are tubed ... a bonus for these situations price is not prohibitive i did loose a cutter but the lighter was still there at the end of the night ... so if yer going to bring appliances bring ones you don't mind loosing . derrek
  14. Cabs of Partagas petit coronas derrek
