  1. I’ll give the box another shot. Also planning on doing a review comparing this to RyJ SC’s from other sources. To see how much of a difference there is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. This is the first full box of Cubans I have ever purchased. All of my other cuban purchases have all been singles or 5 packs. I had one of these out of a sampler that I bought somewhere else and LOVED it. Made my top 5 list. So I went online and bought an entire box from the same place. Its been sitting in my humidor for at least 30 days, so I thought I would have another and see how it measured up since the RyJ SC has not been getting glowing feedback here recently. Remember - I am a new member here. Until discovering this site I didn't know that box codes mattered. I didn't know that Cu
  3. Thanks for the info! That’s what we figured. What about dancing/ clubs? Are they open at all? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks! Since I buy online I’m not sure box codes help me much. You’ll see my posted review this weekend! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Holy cow. My wife and I cancelled our trip planned for this month because we figured everything would be closed and we wouldn’t have much fun. Were we wrong? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Oh yeah, I know I like them. My concern is with the consistency across the line. Concerned that I may have just gotten lucky. They have been down for at least 30 days and have a box date from a year ago, so I can definitely participate in that. I’m new here - point me in the right direction and I will happily take one out for the occasion! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Nicaragua Cuba Germany In that order! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I had a few R&J SC that I liked back to back and splurged on a box (before I discovered FoH). Now with all the hate they get here I’m concerned I’m not going to be impressed with the box, and that I may have just gotten a few lucky ones with those singles. That’s what I get for not doing my research! Time will tell as they are getting some age on them now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks for this write up. I have a few of these on the way - they have been on my list to try for awhile. What does 47+RW mean in the title? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Whenever I’m trying a new cigar I will buy two. One to try with some time on it a n the future. In my log if I don’t like it, I’ll make note to try again. This is doubly true if the reason I didn’t like it was a burn issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Is that Updown Cigar in Chicago? That place is great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks a lot - I just downloaded it. Much easier. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Great review - thank you. I’ve been trying to get my hands on some Sir Winstons, but they’ve been tough to track down. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’ve not had any luck with Opus. Not had one I like. I love Fuente for their mild/medium - Hemingway all day (which is funny, because almost everything else I like is more full flavored.) I liked Opus for the idea (first DR puro), but just don’t like the cigar. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. LLC - are you using an iPhone app for the forum? Which one?
  16. My name is Greg and I am from Chicago. 36YO and have a family. Sox fan. i started smoking cigars 10 years ago - back then I liked non-Cuban Montecristos. About 6 years ago I had a Padron (wow) - and that opened up a new world of trying different cigars for me. Started smoking Cubans while in Canada 4 years ago and loved them. Haven’t looked back. Cigar consumption has really increased since the pandemic began. Happy I found this place, but my wallet is not. Looking forward to becoming part of the community.
