  1. How Many Boxes

    Probably around 60 at the moment.
  2. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    RyJ Cazadores from NOV 16. Love the flavors, but the draw is a bit tight. Hoping it opens up. Getting pepper, dark chocolate, dried black cherry, molasses, toasted tobacco.

    Snagged the PEs. Not a fan of average PEs. But when they’re on, they’re on. These should be very interesting.

    Just have to give those Petit Edmundos a go.
  5. It is certainly a glorious sampler.
  6. Aristocrat Humidor

    That’s a gorgeous humidor! Congratulations. Waiting (not so) patiently for mine. About 4 weeks in. Can’t wait!
  7. Just smoked one. It was total molasses and pancake. Absolutely fantastic.
  8. Ken seems to be in classic form!
  9. What a beautiful sight. Happy early Christmas to me.
  10. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Short on time at the moment, so I fired up a San Cristobal El Principe (FEB 16). Gorgeous opening so far. Molasses, pepper, coffee, cream. Perfect draw and burn at the moment.
  11. A great day at the mailbox: H. Upmann Magnum 50 (PSP/HQ) LEP MAY 17. Saint Luis Rey Regios (Don’t remember) ORG JUN 16 Christmas Sampler. And holy crap this thing is gorgeous.
  12. A great Monte 4 is my favorite of that bunch. But I prefer an average PE to an average No. 4. I think it has something to do with the wrapper-to-filler ratio. You’re going to notice a subpar wrapper on a a No. 4 much more than on a PE because it makes up a higher percentage of the total tobacco.
  13. Sick period

    I'm sorry if I offended you in some way. Certainly didn't mean to. I just have a slightly different view.
  14. Sick period

    Without knowing what you were eating, what was going on with your humidor, what was going on with that specific group of cigars, what the weather was like, etc., it's hard to make any statistically significant conclusions. Also, the sample size is way too low. I don't mean to downplay your experience. I am certain that you experienced exactly what you describe. I just am less convinced that we can, with any certainty, attribute it to a sick period.
  15. Sick period

    I have no doubt that some people have experienced this in some cigars at some point. But there are too many variables at play to say whether it was actually caused by a so-called sick period or something entirely different.
