Looks like you got some beautiful boxes. Did you open them before purchasing? You buy them at the resort humidor or airport?
I have vacationed there a few times and you are right, the stock isn't the greatest. However you got some great boxes!!

Not exactly bought recently .... but just found today in my lockers : Trinidad Fundadores EL NOSU ( El Laguito OCT 1998 ) bought in 2006 in Switzerland. Placed inside my lowest locker and to

My Lusi 50s finally arrived, absolutely gorgeous , look at the dark oily wrapper. I wish I could share the Cuban smell with you all.

This @FrancisK7 is a good day. In fact it’s a damn good day. Some cabs I’ve been on the hunt for a while for. The SLR smell...orgasmic

We took a ride on the bus to LCDH at Pueblo Estrella (the market) met with Eddy (manager)  he offered to open before buying, so I agreed  I would have asked to open before hand but he offered  he was also nice to look for a little bit of his older stuff for me  most boxes are early 2016 but the trini Reyes are from 2015.  Stock wasn't great but I also didn't expect a lot since it's the only one at Santa Maria. 

They did have the new RE Cuba at the airport but I didn't want to take a chance, since it was just on a normal shelf by some jewellery cases and cologne lol

I've never had them but I've always been intrigued by the Party Culebras. Such an interesting presentation

I got it mainly for keep sake. Not sure if I'll ever smoke it. Maybe. Never know. I think they are very unique looking

The few times I've had one (usually when with a couple of friends) they have been a very good cigar. If you find yourself with a couple of friends, lite them up and enjoy.

I joined this great forum a little more than a week ago and in that time I have purchased Boli RCs, 2 x H. Upmann RRs, and Trini coloniales from the 24:24 sales. :o My CC is on fire!!

Ordered two boxes of HUPC from another vendor. Showed up today. One box was perfect the other some mold spots but one stick with a really bad split. I cut open the split one... you know... for science....  the insides look good all long filler.

Nothing out of the ordinary to me.  Things happen.

Yea, it was too far gone to smoke so I decided to open it up for the hell of it.

Brother, please crop this and get rid of the packaging in the pic. Not a good thing. I know it isnt from the host here, but it dosnt help anyone.

Oh for God sake, would you get a grip? The packaging reveals nothing. And who gives a flying if he didn't get it from our Host?

Also just curious. What wrapper shade do you guys prefer on your Cohibas/Siglo 1's? 

Do you think I would taste a difference between these 2?

Definitely lighter for the Linea 1492. Cohiba lines don't really vary much between Colorado and Colorado Claro (not including the Maduro 5 line, of course!), unlike other marcas I've seen El Pres post from time-to-time that show the same vitolas contrast in separate boxes from Claro to Colorado Maduro in shading. Personally, I don't believe you'll get much of a difference in taste on account of the slight wrapper shade difference.

I was thinking the same thing. I've never actually seen dark Cohibas (not including the maduro line). These Siglo 1s are probably the darkest I've seen, and they're not even that dark (photo makes it look a bit darker).  

Thanks for the input John :thumbsup:
