I remember when this run of dark, uber-oily Dip 2’s hit 24:24....still have more than half my box of TOS Feb 17’s, samplings so far have been excellent. Enjoy!

That's good to hear. I have only had one example of a Dip 2 ever, but when I saw these come up a few years ago I figured why not. Will be sampling shortly after a little rest from the travel. Cheers!

Monte 1 (unfortunately one cracked wrapper) and HdM du depute.

Minor crack on wrapper is still better than puffing asbestos cigars and getting box filled with duds @Bijan. Had a same experience with Montecristo 1935 Dumas but worse crack from foot mate ?.

Thanks. Yes it wasn't too bad. But more damage as it stuck to its neighbor on the way out. But it's smoking fine right now as we speak, so all is well.

I did! I'll see what they say.

Edit: it wasn't a sealed box so they should have seen it assuming it didn't happen in transit.

Fortunately the wrapper is mostly for appearance (contributes a small amount to flavor), and a tear rarely causes issues for burning until it reaches the bad spot. Usually a touch up is all that’s needed to get past. Glad it’s smokable and you’re enjoying!

Same. I enter any tracking numbers in the Canada Post app and refresh each morning.

Blimey they are dark! Please post a note when you fire one up. Would be interesting to hear what they are like.

Going to smoke one out of the ELU box ROTT tonight to get a first impression!!  Probably a bad idea for my first RyJ MF ever ...

I actually find that ROTT is better than the next few days or couple of weeks. My theory is that if the humidity is off, it doesn't absorb or dissipate at the same rate from wrapper/binder/filler and so it ends uneven before it reaches steady state.

Samplers arrived today, odd green mark on one of the Trinis but I'm not gonna sweat it, here they sit in the tray where they'll lay till Christmas comes ...

The green is normal/common, it’s just the chlorophyll popping up when that leaf got dried, was probably dried improperly.  You’ll see it plenty.  Don’t stress on it, it’s not mold or anything bad.
