  1. Those are the best for the money I have found. I have some really nice fancy ones from a group buy but not sure if they’re available anymore. The Heartfelt have always worked just fine for me. Occasionally a very small piece of tape is needed to ensure it stays on. The ones that are sold on Amazon are terrible but some people like them. Different strokes for different folks.
  2. Thanks Brent. They’re coming along nicely. Definitely worth a try if one has the opportunity. I wouldn’t hesitate to grab more.
  3. Thanks. I think they’re really good. This is the third out of the box and they all have had a unique profile that I haven’t found in other cigars. There’s an unusual twang to them that I can’t quite articulate. All I know is I like it and yes it was worthy of the occasion. Then again, just being alive is an occasion worthy of smoking the best we can.
  4. TOR DIC 16 Edmundo Dantes Belicoso. Semi celebratory cigar as I have been selected to do an internship with my city’s IT Department this fall. I also received a phone call today asking me to interview on Friday for an internship in the spring with an organization in the US Army. I love it when a plan comes together.
  5. Tell him, “Cohiba are for closers!!!”and see what he says.
  6. ASE NOV 09 Choix Supreme. Enjoying a nice evening on this last week of summer break.
  7. How many boxes you buy per year is a decision you have to make and most importantly what is financially responsible. Maybe you have deep pockets and money is not an issue but it’s easy to spend a lot of money on cigars. Certainly don’t get caught up in trying to “Keep up with the Jones’.” If you’re new to CC try to sample a variety of sizes and brands. Then once you have a better idea of what you enjoy then it’s easier to zero in on what you want to buy boxes of. The aging thing kind of takes care of itself as you start to accumulate a collection. There are a few thread on recent box codes that are well liked and have been producing solid cigars on a whole. Also, keep in mind that sometimes people’s taste changes and if you’ve bought 8-10 boxes in a year the next year you may not care for those anymore. I like to say that cigars are a journey, not a destination. Just enjoy the trip. https://www.friendsofhabanos.com/forum/topic/140421-box-codes-from-the-hip/https://www.friendsofhabanos.com/forum/topic/140718-video-shooting-from-the-hip-newbie-advice/ https://www.friendsofhabanos.com/forum/topic/140419-foh-humidor-vids-part-one-best-buying-practices/
  8. MSU AGO 18 Partagas Serie E No. 2. Very nice Claro wrappers, the construction is excellent and the burn has been almost perfectly straight. I’m getting all the flavors that I enjoy from a good Partagas. This is the second out of this box of five and both have been exceptional. MSU seems to be quite a good code from what I’ve seen here on the forum. I have some UAO with darker wrappers so I’ll have to pull a box of those out and see how they compare.
  9. EUB JUL 17 Churchill. Gifted from a BOTL on another forum. Pretty pleasant cigar.
  10. This photo get a double “like”. [emoji106] Also, a double for Rob’s prawns!!

  12. All labels have been updated with the points from the inventory spreadsheet and have been placed on the cigars. My Puts/Takes have been submitted and awaiting approval. Should be able to get it out by Saturday. Edit: Monday at the latest
  13. The box landed today. I did a quick inventory for FatherOfPugs and working on my puts/takes. The rest of the week will be pretty busy for me but I’m going to try to have it on it’s way no later than this weekend. Also, I noticed a lot of the labels were just slid in the bag with the cigar and many don’t have the points written on them. FatherOfPugs sent me the inventory spreadsheet and I’m going to update the labels with the point values and place the bands on the cigars. Trust me, it makes the whole process easier. Here’s the current contents. Freebie bags Host gift bag
