So a first for me. Got a box w the serial number removed. Ok. That happens periodically even w the reputable resellers. 
 

But this box of PLMC has no box code?  That’s some quality control. 
 

cigars looked good though. Will let them rest for at least thirty before I try to age them by taste ?

Mystery solved for now(ish). Box was also missing the sellers inventory tag, but the warehouse confirms that all they have is December 2018, so that’ll be my story for my spreadsheet and I’m sticking to it. 
 

I have to say that I have been really enjoying the box of PLMC that I cracked open a few months ago now.

@Lrabold89 you hit the aroma on the head. That barnyard funkiness is what I look to kick me in the nose every time I open a box. I was a little surprised. Thanks for the info

Box sounds like a dud. Send it back. I will say though, they may tighten up if they are currently over humidified, but the lack of aroma is a big red flag for me personally.

PSP Monte #2 from the Claro wrapper 24:24 listing. 
These look fantastic and have a great aroma. Down for a good nap they’ll go!

They look great!  Kicking myself for not grabbing some.  I got the PSP darker ones a few months ago.  Would love to see the difference.  I’ll be watching for reviews

I grabbed a 6er of the DARK RAT JUN PSP's that got in a month ago so I'll be able to do a comparison soon!

Just received these this morning.  Looks like @bkdash and I have the same box code (MTS JUN 20) and everything!  Nice oily wrapper for sure!

Can’t wait to dive into these in a few months. Yours look gorgeous!

Everyone is different. I prefer underfilled to overfilled. Obviously I'd prefer perfectly filled, but like you said you can just smoke an underfilled cigar slower, and then the flavours are more or less ok, and you'll just get less smoke time out of the cigar. If overfilled past a certain point then a perfecdraw won't help and there'll be nothing else to do but hope it gets better resting over time or suffer through a tight draw that ruins the cigar for me.
Also everyone's luck is different. It seems despite my preferences, the universe only sends me tight/overfilled boxes and never loose/underfilled ones
Thankfully I don't get the overfilled boxes too often.
Same here. Most Cubans are plugged rather than underfilled so I never mind seeing one that's underfilled. I can normally fix a wind tunnel smoke by using a small punch, vcut, or in the case of Trinidad, just by untwisting the cap slightly. A plugged stick, on the other hand, can be a real pain to get an acceptable draw, even with a perfect draw...
