  1. I know. The only two unknowns in this world are the future and what is happening in my wife’s head at any given moment. I’m actually better at predicting the future which my portfolio would show I’m not very good at at all. Lol.
  2. The boxes seemed off to me because they had 2 warranty seals, the first seal serial number was cut off and the second seal on top of the first had the serial number folded over and covered by the price tags. Also the cigars were very different colors and sizes, but thinking about it the salesman was pulling cigars out of several boxes and putting them back into whatever box was closest to him. All the other cigars were legitimate.

    What about this boxcode.

    Those look plenty good and I’ve had a few UGO which look and smell great.
  4. So first thanks to all who responded to my post about cigar shops in Mexico. We were pretty far south in Riveria Maya and with a consensus of nothing special around I avoided the $100 taxi fare and just enjoyed my cigars for the week. Although the duty free at Cancun airport did have 7 boxes of Edmundo Dante’s at 355 US/box. Quite honestly the provenance was more than questionable and my dog routinely takes shits which I’d rather smoke. Now on to it. I love my wife and she loves me; so much so she asked if I would teach her how to smoke a cigar and maybe on vacation we could enjoy a cigar together. She asked this before we left so I brought a bunch of Rascc and Trini Coloniales, which are excellent cigars I believe. Small and cheap enough that when she took two puffs asked what the hell is wrong with me and crushed it out like a cigarette I wouldn’t be too tempted to murder her. To our single brothers these feelings happen when you’re married. I brought myself an 06 Party P2, 07 Siglo VI, and a few RyJ Capuletos and RACA. I start her off with a trini. One of the best cigars I smoked out there honestly. The humidity was brutal on the bigger cigars. She detected some flavors but thought it was mainly a mix of ashtray and wet ashtray. More for me I thought, but like all women my wife is stubborn and determined, 2 wonderful qualities I admire ladies, so she wanted to try again. This time we went to the cigar bar where I planned on smoking my P2 and I brought her a RASCC. Well the P2 was amazing for the first three puffs I took. She knew they were aged and asked to try it as the RASCC was a bit more wet ashtray to her. I agreed as I do enjoy RASCC and figured a Party would knock her for a loop. To my surprise she took one puff, retrohaled, and her eyes lit up like I just gave her a Chanel bag. I knew I had just shot myself in both feet and maybe an arm. I didn’t see the cigar again How old is this, how’d you get this, are there more of these? As she rattled off questions and smoked my cigar my head was spinning with ways I could hide the rest of my stash. I knew however that I had opened Pandora’s box and it wouldn’t be shut without a Herculean effort. Last night was our final night of the trip and she wanted to sit in the outdoor jacuzzi tub and have a romantic cigar. She asked about the best cigar I had left. Of course I immediately offered the Capuletos ,a 2016 EL I told her, what about the RACA 2015! but she took one look at my Siglo VI and said isn’t that the cigar you’re always talking about; I’d been had gentleman. Like a poker player knowing he’d just been bluffed into going all in and he was now facing a full house I swallowed hard and accepted defeat. As I sat in our romantic bath and watched my beautiful wife smoke my beautiful cigar I am not ashamed to say I shed a few tears. I pondered my options, none were any good. At least I could smell the honey and sweet grass aroma coming from the foot from time to time. Well on the flight home my wife was raving about the cigars and asked me how often do @El Presidente and @WarriorPrincess sell 10 year old cigars because I’d like more. I had to think fast, and I believe the Gods smiled on me. This was our anniversary vacation and our first attempt at baby making. Well actually having kids, we did the deed before obviously. She’s using some pee sniffing computer which tells her when it’s the best baby making time. It was the vacation week. So I blurted out “I think your pregnant so no more cigars for you until the kid is older”. Well that seemed to quell the beast I had awakened and I believe the rest of my cigars are safe for now... I hope. Rob can I send boxes back to you to store in the OLH? This definitely constitutes a severe emergency. Anyway gentlemen, enjoy your cigars, share them when you can and if your wife wants to try any hit the local B&M for the crappiest thing you can find. I am of course joking, mostly, I’m very happy to share a hobby with my wife and if she starts putting money towards cigars I’m going to have one hell of a collection. As a final note she did look quite sexy in the tub with a cigar in hand. So I won’t complain anymore. Thanks for reading and enjoy every moment we have with those we love. They are precious and we aren’t guaranteed any more of them. Ted fastkiller13

    Cigar Shops Riveria Maya Mexico

    Funny you mention the glass top boxes. As I was smoking a CORO last night I had a gentlemen approach me to tell me about the humidor box he was able to buy for only $250 US and my cigar was obviously fake because this vendor told him about all the fake cigars here and my band didn’t match his. I was smoking a 2007 from an aged sampler purchased from 24:24. Cigar was amazing. Only problem is it’s so humid out here I’m literally using desiccant packs to keep my humidity at 60RH

    Cigar Shops Riveria Maya Mexico

    Thanks, I did bring my own smokes. I was just looking to possible find some aged/hard to get stock. Plus it’ll get me out of sitting in the sun by the pool for a day. I am pale enough to make any Englishman green with envy.

    Cigar Shops Riveria Maya Mexico

    I would never buy anything priced liked that. I’m surprised they checked out. If you think they look bad you should be happy I didn’t put up a picture of the $80 Monty 2. I brought plenty of my own stash down with me but figured a good shop around might have something worth picking up. @madandana do you know the name of the shop by any chance?
  8. Hi Guys, I’m on vacation out here in Mexico, Riveria Maya, was wondering if anybody could recommend a few good cigar shops? I think there is an LCDH fairly close. Or I can always just buy from the hotel shop, LOL. i can’t reach the authenticity check from my phone. Someone tell me if they’re even legit?

    NYC Herf?

    I just realized I haven't been signed in so I just saw this, but depending on the hurricane situation I might be on vacation until around the 24th of Sept.
  10. I totally forgot to submit my pick. Oh well, I'm sure had I submitted it would've been wrong but since I didn't it will be correct. Kinda like the light wave/particle thing.

    Your next box is likely to be?

    I'm going to try and hold out for a box of Siglo VI, CCE, or Lanceros. Likelihood of success: >20%

    candela cigars

    I really don’t like the flavor of a candela wrapper. They’re plenty of NC which are made with Candella wrappers. A trend I have seen lately is a barber pole cigar. There are two wrappers the candella and a standard wrapper. I may have a few buried in my humidor. If so I’ll throw up a pic later on.
  13. I love my old 80's toys. I just pulled some of my star wars stuff out of storage to decorate the new home with.
  14. All the value I placed in aged stock comes from 2 things. 1. Me knowing that I actually enjoy that cigar aged and 2. Knowing how the cigars have been taken care of. Have they sat in a climate controlled environment at proper RH for 10 years or have they passed through 8 hands and who knows what condition they were kept in.
  15. I couldn’t beleive it myself. Good thing for smart phones or no one else would beleive it either.
