I've gotten both Siglo V's and CE's in cardboard. If I could offer some advice it would be to take them out and put them in an empty SLB if you have one. They taste flat if left in those boxes for too long.

Hmmmmmm... Strange, Kevin. (nice to see you frequently posting, btw! Hope the hols are treating you well)

I hear this recommended quite often. Have left all my Esplendidos (some 04s, some 06s, some 08s, and some '13s) in cardboards and have tasted quite fine compared to the standards. Still moderately strong (for Cohiba) and amazing flavours. Never have much changes with these.

The only cigar that has had issues with cardboard storage have been my OR Trinidad Reyes which tasted flat. Perhaps that's not due to cardboard storage. But from my personal experience with cardboard storage, it's never really steered me wrong.

Funny, because where does one find Trinidad? In paper or wood??

Cohiba, on the on the other hand is aplenty - and tourist packaging never fails - the ones in paper are to be smoked immediately

Some of the darkest brown Monte 2's I've personally ever seen. PSP Montecristo No. 2 from the Christmas Clearance Sale.

Very nice. I basically won't touch Montecristo's from anywhere aside from my own hand-picks in Cuba (if the stars line up and I'm lucky enough when down there), or PSP selections from Rob.

The small percentage in pricing is sooooooooooo worth it for PSP sticks, especially for the main crazily-produced brands.

Had a day trip with the Girlfriend into London on Friday, picked up a Por Larranaga Sobresalientes (Not had one yet) and a La Flor de Cano Short Robusto (One of my favourite cigars... Just so expensive for the size) from Alfie Turmeaus in Mayfair.
