    What's your plugged cigar rate?

    This one is like sucking a frozen milkshake through a damn straw. Not pleasant at all. Just aggravates me to no end. Especially when you toss one after 20 mins...grab another, same story, etc.

    New Partagas Maduro

    If it's anything like the no1, they should be readily available everywhere before too long.

    What's your plugged cigar rate?

    I'm at less than 5%. Had a 10 ct box of RyJ short churchills from 2015. I believe 7 out of 10 were unsmokeable/plugged. After that experience, I got the PerfecDraw. The only other time, I believe, where I had issues was the recent box of Fonseca no1. I determined after inspecting the box, that half were overfilled/plugged. I will let them rest and revisit though.

    Lol I hear ya. This box was a PSP too, so kinda disappointed. I'll let them rest long term. Maybe revisit them in 6 months. I hope they come around because I love the flavor profile of Fonseca. Very unique.

    I have much to learn, thank you for this. One thing that really bothers me is overfilled cigars. I've got a box of Fonseca no1 and 50% are overfilled and plugged, but have great wrappers. Very disappointed. I've had to toss a few of them, even after using the perfecdraw. Any way to combat this--let them sit at a higher humidity for awhile? Or the opposite? Keep attempting to unplug them?

    I always thought the darker ones age better so try not to touch them? We're talking far longer than 4 or 5 years. I'm thinking 10-15+, right?

    Top 10 Cuban cigar buys right now?

    Yes sir, all luck of the draw + relationship with LCDH employees. And I guarantee you there are people that go to Havana 1-3 times per month (flippers). Oh well what can you do?

    When I went in July, there were no Cuba ERs. I asked, and literally everyone laughed at me. Have they released any new ones lately?
  11. Sounds more like playing the lottery as these guys here seem to separate mastercases by PSP, HQ, etc...which is why I am very thankful for 24:24 so most of the time, you know the exact quality and what to expect. You get what you pay for.

    Hahaha oh man you guys are killing me. Please don't get anything that is not sold out of an LCDH, and no glass tops. Custom rolls are great. Stock on the island changes constantly. When you do purchase, make sure to open boxes to get quality. And to make sure there are no beetle holes or mold, etc. For me besides the custom rolls, I would go for: Montecristo 1935 series, any 50 cabs of QUALITY sticks, jars, LCDH sticks (HU royal robustos, Boli Libertadors, etc.) are great deals!!!! Maybe if you find any discontinued hidden somewhere. It's possible. I also tend to look for sticks that are insanely expensive outside the island, which tend to be the larger vitolas. Buena suerte senor!
