  1. Haven't had this particular vitola in ages, maybe never. If I did then I don't remember a thing about it. Possibly bought a five pack at some time...I've definitely never bought a box before, & I just recently received this absolutely gorgeous box from our host & favorite team. ETP ENE 16 I could no longer contain myself & fired this baby up 17 days after receiving it. Gorgeous medium dark wrappers with an oily sheen Sweet cake and a little barnyard aromas on the cold. Construction spot on, draw slightly firm - just the way I like it. Toasty tobacco goodness, rich & creamy Leather, dark cocoa , medium espresso, slight cedar Taste was just wonderful from the start, & it never let up. Medium to medium full strength range, a bit stronger towards the nub. This certainly was a cracker cigar, so many wonderful balanced flavors in this little guy. A flavor bomb indeed. All I can say is wow - what a treat! Thank you for the opportunity & privilege, Rob. [emoji1360] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I wish I had known you were looking for Michter's 10. I have a couple from 2015 release, probably would have given you a better price if you are buying from the secondary market.
  3. I detect a little Plume Envy. You're right guys, it doesn't exist. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Welcome - sounds like your Club Allones need a little more time to reach their glory. Let us know what happens.
  5. Unfortunately this is my favorite rye so far
  6. I can see the crustiness it forming on this 2003 Sig VI (one of my last two [emoji17]) ... so I guess the answer to the OP's question is - about 13 years, give or take a few. [emoji1][emoji1][emoji1] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. I've seen it more on NCs than CCs - And no, it does NOT wipe off.
  8. About 4 to 5 years ago, my wife had an unexpected wave of sympathy for my vices and bought me not only the Redford Humidor but also a 144 bottle wine cooler. The Redford has done a good job for me over the past several years keeping my cigars adequately cool in the Florida climate where I live. It's basically a Chinese made refrigeration unit with aromatic cedar shelving and wooden cabinetry surrounding it. I'm waiting for the compressor to die on me but it has kept on going so far. I do not use the humidification system built into the humidor because after I had filled the water basin, within less than 2 weeks there was rust forming on the inside. I just use humidification beads or a small container of water on the bottom. I've been thinking of getting an Oasis unit but it hasn't really been necessary. I also think the cedar shelves used for my unit are not Spanish cedar, it's some sort of other aromatic cedar that I've wanted to replace but have never gotten around to it. I also wish the top two shelves were flat rather than tilted forward for display to improve capacity. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Not my latest purchase, rather my latest arrivals from our hosts A BCG & DA Easter coupon sampler - and a box of the much heralded flavor behemoth, Mag 56s - My latest purchases are pending shipment AND I really need to learn to spectate for a while #famous last words #yea right Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. They were advertised as being Hand Picked on the 24:24. Then again, who really understands El Pres's sticker system? --> (not me)[emoji38]
  11. A couple new members made it into my humidor club today from our awesome hosts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. A 10 box of Lusi's from our host arrived today Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Only Fuentes is Fuente.
  14. That's my story & I'm sticking by it. He & his wifey were staying at the Nacional for what that's worth. He was/is a newb like Zimmerman said & I guess the clerk at the hotel's store serving him at the time sniffed that out correctly. No one said the clerk replaced real cigars from real boxes on the dhelf - the boxes he received were fugazzi as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. A newb buddy of mine brought back some raging fake Coro's from the Nacional even though he bought 2 full boxes [emoji403] [emoji403] shame shame shame [emoji35] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
