    Newbie Box PASS 2017/2018

    Just received the box this evening. Shoutout to @Diabolicalpherpher for the generous gift of a '14 Party 898. I'm out of town for work tomorrow but will get the box on the road Friday. Thinking through my takes / puts now.

    Toby's Tips Update

    Pres, for some reason the file isn't loading. Is anyone else having this issue?
  6. Recent acquisitions, Lanceros and A's, the wrappers on the A's have me drooling. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Your first ever box buy?

    Box of Monte #2's blind. The wrappers were downright awful, which led me to do due diligence and eventually find FOH.

  10. I already mentioned it, but i purchased a box of Monte #2 and Rob also recently had Epi #2s that I believe were from this program as well. Both appeared to be pretty decent quality. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Likewise picked up a box of Monte #2's from a recent 24/24 with the sticker. On inspection, from an aroma and wrapper quality perspective, they are not as good as a box of HQ Monte #2's I purchased earlier from Rob. (at least in my humble opinion)

    Wooden Desktop Humidors

    I second the Ebay suggestion. If you are a little patient, there are great deals on various humidors from Diamond Crown, Dunhill, Davidoff and Elie Bleu. I recently purchased an Elie Bleu model on it that I have been extremely pleased with. While it certainly wasn't cheap, I do feel that I got a great "deal" compared to a brand new one at full retail. You can set search alerts to notify you when new items are listed. You could also head into your local B&M and see if they are willing to cut any sort of deal, it seems to me that typically nice humidors are slow moving items for them.

    Question for older BOTL

    As a guy that has gotten serious about the hobby in the past 12 months, I've done a few different things to remedy the same situation. First, when I find something I really like, I buy more boxes to lay down(i.e. Monte PE, Mag 46, Monte 2 and HDM 2). I've also started to suck it up and buy aged boxes on certain items where I personally feel it is worth it (Monte 2 and HDM 2, CORO when they come up). This has given me a decent array of "smoking stock" to wait out my newer boxes aging. All of this being said, the only true solution to have tons of optionality for aged sticks would be to buy additional aged stock in the near-term until everything ages, but I also don't want to spend my entire salary on sticks. I think the trading solution mentioned by guys is a great idea to get 5ers or singles of aged sticks to try. One other thing to mention is that occasionally Rob will come across stock that have a bit of age not listed as "aged" or "locker sales". I've tried to pick these up (Monte PE and JL #2 with 2014 codes come to mind)
  14. Recent acquisitions from our host, I was surprised to find the Coro with a 15 box date. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Going to be out of town for work on Tuesday, what a bummer.
