  1. I need a bit of education about box codes. Now Im sure we all know the number is the year of production, and ideally you want a lower number, which means there is age on the cigars. Now the question I have are those of you chasing manufacturer box codes. What are the codes out there and what factories do they represent. Are certain factories more sought after than others, and why? At this point in my hobby, I'm just happy receiving boxes, but Im sure there will come a time when I am looking for specific factory codes.
  2. I knew keeping this old Royal Typewriter would come in handy.
  3. Im using these, which I would say are some of the better ones Ive seen. https://www.amazon.com/Blank-Cigar-Bands-400-Pack/dp/B00MYFG3PU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1540261527&sr=8-1&keywords=cigar+bands
  4. Thanks!! I bought it some ten years ago. I hardly use it, and it was actually boxed with my last move. I received some customs and I remembered I had it. I’m pretty thrilled with the results.

  6. Im going to be heading out there and would love an attempted meetup. Not sure what the group has planned, but if at all possible, I will be there one of the days.
  7. “Best cigar in the world!!!”-Paul that being said I really enjoy them. I tucked away three boxes.

    Cuba November 2018

    First trip to Cuba for me. Cant wait to meet some people here
  9. I have wondered which might be better. Alex or La China.
  10. Ive seen the side of the box being 50,000 boxes. Also, from pics from various people, there have been a great deal of construction issues.
  11. Are the psp/HQ stock meant to be smoked fresh? Considering they have oily wrappers, I find that keeping the wrapper lit can sometimes be problematic. I have less issues with the lower graded Cigars. How long do the higher grades have to rest till they are relatively ready? I do understand people buy PSP for aging stock, but I prefer the color over the lower grades and find it hard to wait.

    Newcomer (Newbie) Q&A

    Why do people shrink wrap boxes for long term ageing? Is it the same as vacuum packing the box? How will the cigar vary from those that aren’t shrink wrapped?

    I find R&J Short Churchills, HDM Epi 2, and Robaina Famosos all smoke well young.

    1 Box from Cuba

    If it were me I would ask for sir Winstons, or grab two boxes of Cohiba Talisman for the price of one everywhere else.
