What are you going deep on, now?

After being a “one-of-everything” guy for a few years, lately I’ve been choosing to only purchase things I consistently enjoy. CoRo, RASS, JL2’s, and Dip 2’s are my bread and butter lately so I try and have a couple boxes of each resting.

Nice line up! 👍🏽  I’ve never tried a Dip 2 but that’s dry boxing now for the weekend.  Picked up a few singles and looking forward to it. I have full boxes of the others mentioned and agree completely.

I only recently discovered how much I like a few of the LCDH releases. I’m going down on Libertadores, Superiores, and of course La Trovas. 

Freudian slip?  😂

In my mind I was scuba diving. In reality I was sitting on my patio drinking rum. It all seemed to make perfect sense last night. :D

That’s an easy $30k right there - wow. But yeah, China is making it much harder to expatriate money so you got to invest in something...

I guess 30k is a drop in the bucket compared to big wine acquisitions.

...or houses in Vancouver, but that loophole has apparently been closed ;)

I have gone deep as in 5 boxes or more on Bbf, short Churchills, JL2's, CoRo, HdM Epi 2, Monte 4 and PLPC. Everything else is one or two boxes. I like to buy something new every month to try.

Moving forwards I will be stocking up on Bolviar Royal Coronas, Monte Media Coronas, R&J Petit Royals, HUHC - getting short smokes in for winter. Then come December I plan to stock up on some double coronas for summer.

And I shall certainly be buying some more San Juan as they seem lovely.

I hope you had the Perfect Draw to open up those Lusitanias ?

I do own a Perfect Draw. It did absolutely nothing for them.  The cigar is 2 to 3 inches longer than the tool.  The samples from this particular box or just too tightly rolled. No way around it except to throw them in the trash.

I have another box. Hopefully better.

Have you tried the Rob trick, put one in the fridge a couple of hours before you smoke and see if that helps with the draw...

You can use it on both ends of the cigar, from what I hear.

I was about to post the same question!  😀

For me it's HDM Rio Seco first and foremost, then a smattering of HURR, Connie A/B, Mag 54, and QDO 50/54 (although these are becoming harder to find).

How’s the rio Seco, went in blind for a box of these for the first time without any research

I'm far from an expert, but I think it has the makings of a classic given a little time to rest, coupled with the increasing popularity of large ring gauges.

I guess I’ll be on the look out for San Juan’s, have you tried the des dieux?

Right, before lighting you can.  But even using it on both ends, you have to line it up.  And I don’t recommending poking a dozen holes in a cigar, no matter how plugged.  It will change the intended flavor taking out too much tobacco.

No... not yet. I'm awaiting another box of RJ Petit Royals which are just a lovely fantastic short smoke and a box of Hoyo Petit Robustos.

I will be looking when funds permit to get another 8 boxes of Bolivar Royal Coronas and 6 boxes of Short Churchills. That's all my go to regular smokes topped up. After that it will be San Juan and Churchills, BBF's and some Partagas Anjeandos. Oh and some more Monte Media Coronas and Petit Royals.

And by that time it will the the new year and I will have to grab another 5 boxes of CoRo and start all again on my go to smokes... I'm trying to build up a fair few boxes of each every year

At the stage in life, where kids gone, house paid for. Have worked hard and put away, time to enjoy.  Not a big drinker or golfer, but I do enjoy cigars. Still work hard.....but I enjoy what I do so it's more like playing for me. I wouldn't say weslthy, but comfortable.....and by the way if I choose to put down some cigars for the future, what's the harm in that?

No harm bro ....enjoy and happy for you !!

Recently hit more JL2s and some Coro.  But I’m pretty thick in PSD4s and Monte Doubles Eds.

Petit Corona. Flavours wise I found them a bit meh young - they were ok but nothing special. But with some age on them (~4 years) they blossomed. On the sweet end of RyJ not particularly complex but some of the cherry profile is there, sometimes floral as the name would suggest. They are not the greatest cigars but they are well worth the price to me. I think they are one of the most popular cigars in France (but I could be making that up...). Alongside the PLMC I think they are a bargain.
