  1. My first 24:24 arrival - I was like a kid at Christmas waiting for the mailman to come yesterday! UEB FEB 18 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks, I would give (her) a shout out - but given the rules re: mentioning vendors (albeit this was a B&M), I'm going to keep my mouth shut unless someone tells me that's ok.

    On that same token, the Siglos are starting off beautifully with notes of honey, coffee with cream, but seemed to lose its luster in the final third. Again, probably a sign of youth (but correct me if I'm wrong?)

    Smoked one, and I think it was just not acclimatized. Didn't burn well nor taste like, anything really. This coming Monday will make 4 full weeks of true resting for them (with 3 weeks being at 70f/70rh and 1 week at 70f/65rh). I think they need to settle down a little longer before I can really form any fair assessment. But man, is it ever hard to let them sit when they're staring you in the face every day!

    I find the box pass concept a lot of guys are involved with here very cool - I see the most recent one (run by @Wertman) is well underway. Any idea when the next one of these might be organized? I'd love to participate if you'd have me. Thanks

    Not so much that I'm "worried," as to I want to be able to learn how to pick out my own boxes in the future with consistency. I'm sure the ordering I'm doing on 24:24 will definitely help to set that needle.

    Thanks. I would agree that's also how I see it. Goes in part with what Rob has been saying, that 25's of Monte 2's lately have been no good. The Sig VI feel the oiliest in my hand. I've smoked one of each (sans Genios), and I'd rate them Sig VI, Epi 2, Monte 2.
  10. Being relatively new to this whole scene, I'm curious as to your opinions of these four sets of wrappers. It was my first CC purchase while on honeymoon in Grand Cayman (not from an LCDH, but from another reputable B&M on the island). My purpose for this exercise is to try to gain some experience and insight in grading cigars the way the expert @El Presidente does. Surely I'll never be on that level, but the only way to learn is practice and repetition. As for the general disclaimer, of course, photos can only go so far, without having a box right in front of you to truly give a worthwhile opinion. I did try to get the best possible photos that accurately represent what these look like in person. So... with that being said, what do you think I've got? PSP? HQ? PE? A pile of dog doo-doo? Honesty is preferred Thanks in advance! 1. Cohiba Siglo VI REG DIC 17 2. HDM Epicure No. 2 GOM DIC 17 3. Montecristo No. 2 UBM OCT 17 4. Cohiba Maduro 5 Genios MSU NOV 17

    That’s a main reason I picked up a box of the SLR Regios from last week’s 24:24. Going to acclimatize them and then let em rip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Whats your setup?

    First setup is complete... not the most amazing wrappers/color in the world, but I'll give myself one pass since it was my inaugural purchase. But with 7 boxes from 24:24 en route... I will definitely be needing something BIGGER

    So... just spent the evening reading the FOH historical threads on Mold vs Plume/Bloom/Bloomberg's Substance @PigFish What I've learned... 1. I'm an idiot (cuz I thought that was really plume) 2. I'm an idiot? (cuz I think that might have been plume? maybe?) 3. WTF is actually plume? Don't actually answer #3... please... I don't want to start another FOH war. Just forgive me for my naïvety ... unless it was plume ... in which case, applaud me for my wisdom.
