  1. Still working thru a full singles tray of NC...I was told this was original production, and it sure tastes like it. Very mellow rum raisin to start, reminiscent of San Cristobal but no Cuban character to speak of. Heavy spices, lead by allspice and black pepper. No transitions, no sweetness leading into 2nd half. Ramps intensity to full++ gobs of flavor, no nuances. Doesn't taste of tobacco; black tea and cake. Pretty good, but no subtle charm.

  9. There's 5ct boxes as well, maybe hard to find fresh, but they are out there for sure
  10. They come up on the regular 2424. Compared to the other partagas I've had, they are cut from a different cloth. It's less than 50% that ill break the box this weekend, ill probably wait another 6 months. I have plenty of singles and NC to work through.
  11. I've been trying to not break open a box of e2 that I've had for 6 months now....something will be smoked in the next few days
