  1. There are plenty of good $5-$10 NCs out there currently. However you really need to shop online to get them at that price as they may be marked up $15+ Or more at a B&M. The NC market really takes some research because a lot of the mega-producers price shoddy cigars at or above higher quality boutique brands.
  2. I had this single floating in the humidor. I received it from somewhere here with no info on that band other than 2017. Ive had mixed experience with Cohiba, ranging from sublime to disappointing. Good draw, but nothing remarkable flavor-wise in the cold draw. Upon lighting I get that classic Cohiba “sweet hay” flavor. This is a good sign because I’ve had much better results from Cohiba if I can detect a little bit of that sweetness up front. Moving into the second third some coffee and background citrus notes join in. Back end of the 2nd third I get that wonderful honey comb, my most favorite flavor note to find in a Cohiba. Final third cruises along until the last 2 inches get hot and the flavors take a turn for the worse. It’s possible I was smoking too quickly, I was in a conversation and didn’t have my full attention on the cigar. All in all this one was a winner and reminds me that Cohiba at its best is a fantastic smoke.
  3. At this price who could resist? [emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’d be all over this if I still lived in Chicago. Hope it works out for you guys - should be fun. 👍
  5. I rarely eat peanut butter, but if I had to pick at this point in my life it would be crunchy!
  6. Thanks to @FatherOfPugs for taking such a big job with this pass! I got a window into what happens behind the scenes last year helping@cfc1016 with a few things. The contents of the box were all in great shape. I never get tired of opening up a box pass It’s always fun to see cigars face to face that you only seen online!

  7. We are gonna need a bigger box if this behavior continues. 😂 Good stuff guys!
  8. I agree with the other guys. Looks like a looser filler pack when wet, so as it dried the wrapper had enough extra space to wrinkle.
  9. There are a few of us lurking around in here! [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Love the cold aroma on these cigars cedar and spice! First day for a warm outdoor smoke here in Minnesota! I’m not going to split this review into thirds because there really isn’t that much shift for me. These are a solid medium-full with spices, and a woody cherry undertone - Classic RyJ. These are not complex, there is not a lot of finesse, but if you have been looking to experience that cherry flavor people talk about in a RyJ, these are the clearest example I’ve tasted. This was a great cigar to smoke on a warm breezy day where I didn’t have to worry about the wind carrying away the flavors. Hope everyone else is having a great weekend!
