Now I heard these were great smokes. My first one out of the box was plugged to the point where I had to pitch it. Tried to massage it, tried to run a poker through it. Are others having this issue or was it a fluke?

Not all tight draws are plugged cigars. Don't know you or where the cigars been. But high humidity in storage or where you are smoking can make a lovely cigar tighten right up.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that out of the 2 boxes I've smoked I've never had a plugged or really right draw HURR.

I vote fluke.

I think it is a fluke as well. The ones that I have smoked have not had any draw issues. Hope your luck gets better with the rest of the box.

I've had just a couple of tight ones out of around 30. A little fridge time helped to open them up - thanks for the tip, Rob!

Too bad. Hope you have better luck with your next one. These are just a pleasure to smoke.

edit: Haven't had a *phenomenal* one in years to be honest. The last great one was from SUB ABR12.

No issues with any of the boxes I've devoured :)

A plugged cigar out of Cuba you say??? I've never had a plugged cigar!!!

If you have new boxes, always let them rest if you can. If you cut a plugged one, put it back in the humi and grab another.

Had a box last year and no issues. Have more boxes on the way so I'll have to let you know once I dip into them. Although I have to think that with the amount they are putting out of these you'd expect to find a bad one every now and then.

I had a box from h and f that was the worst box of cigars I have ever smoked. Horrid construction issues.

Of the 2 boxes I've smoke through, had 1 plugged. Could just be bad luck. I'm sure the rest are fine.

30+ sticks into my first release boxes and not a single one with construction problems - I think you just had bad luck.

All HU RR have been rolled well from my experience. Most likely bad luck in your end. Hopefully it's the first and last out of your box.

I've gone through 2.5 boxes and none were tight or plugged.

I've been through 8 out of the same box (UPE ABR12) and have had 1 plugged.

Keep trying them, don't get discouraged. Never had a plugged one yet.

If I get a pluged cigar I cut it in half ,you have two small cigars and 9 out of 10 times both will smoke well. To me it's better than pitching it!
