Despite the potential at hand, Mojo remains unimpressed. Can never really tell with a cat, though.

QDOs look so good, but the reviews always scare me considering I am such a big Party fan

I’m a big party fan, too (all types really ;)
For me the Qd’Os require a bit of patience and I’ve found a good 2-3 years down really helps bring them around. That’s just me though. At least I can still stare at them while I wait!

Rafael Gonzales Perlas 50 cab (German LCdH issue only). Fortunately the warning stickers come off really really easily, making it much more aesthetically pleasing. The cigars themselves are from 2013 according to the seller though the differing bands indicate that the years may vary 2012/2013?d150452f262b574b7a244f2ddafbc93b.jpg595341588b45784be2e37be8f737a382.jpg

Also got a box of them sitting back home in Germany, haven’t had a chance yet to look at them.

Interesting that they littelrally just opened some other boxes and chucked them into the 50 cabs without even caring for the bands. That would have not required too much more of an effort!

But hey, you get some aged little sticks that are good for short breaks or while working in the garden at a good price in a unique box.

Enjoy them!

It would appear that the cigars are from cardboard 5-packs as they are not box pressed and, in my cab, there is a 20/30 spilt between bands. [mention=28516]fugu[/mention] had the info/idea regarding this a while back on another thread and it appears to be correct. Personally, I'm fine with it and really looking forward to getting through them, happy in the knowledge that more are potentially only a week away

According to what I've seen in my own stock, it seems the older bands had been in use in cardboard boxes well into 2012, perhaps up unitil early 2013. The dressboxes were sporting the new bands earlier. So, I think it is safe to say - and given you guys report on no visible boxpress (don't call any 50-cab my own) - that these are indeed 2012/13 cardboard sticks.

Still smoking a lot of my '12 original cardboard stock, which I even don't bother about re-packing - and they are such great little sticks. Always tasty and construction is never an issue.

These just arrived. Have not read much about them in the review Dept. Gonna let them rest a month or so since they're supposed to have a lot of age on them. A gift from a friend. 5ab6c01ccff21_20180324_134745_resized(002).thumb.jpg.3114d1ced9f85842db60dc9412cee447.jpg

Let them rest in your humidor for 30 days, it really does make a difference. Low 60's on the humidity.
