Since any emails from Dee are quarantined thru my company server, I bought and didn't know I got a box of PL Montecarlos. Last night I got another box (Checked my credit card statement.) 2 is always better than one...

I’ve done that and my emails aren’t quarantined. Ive got plenty of JL1s now though 🤣

Look and smell great but weighed a few and all between 16-17g not the 17.86g generally expected, is this normal for others who have these sticks? A couple feel a little soft but nothing dramatic.

I'd say in general that sounds normal. If you're worried weigh more of them.

I'd say 1/3 a bit underweight, 1/3 close to weight, 1/3 overweight is a pretty standard distribution for a box.

In general you'll get more at and over than underweight, but it varies box to box.

I weighed a few, none more than 17.5. The whole bundle of 50 is 825g so that's an average of 16.5g

That's a bit low. But I have a box with 48 left. I can weigh the bundle, give me a minute :)

Edit: Got about 843g, so 17.5g average I think (assuming it was indeed 48 left).

Many thanks, my box seems low indeed then.🤔

Not strictly a purchase, a gift in return for a favour made to a friend. Look and smell great but weighed a few and all between 16-17g not the 17.86g generally expected, is this normal for others who have these sticks? A couple feel a little soft but nothing dramatic.

It's good to see that they haven't changed the bands. 

I thought they'll be replacing the bands with the regular smaller bands??!!!

I think that was one batch when they ran out of bands.

A quarter box of RUP Nov 20 Montecristo No.5, courtesy of our host...

Don't recall box codes but picked up a couple quarters from here in past few months. Have had a few and were excellent. As good as any I have had in recent years

Those look just right for Sig IVs… that lovely tawny hue.

The very reason I couldn’t resist, as box pics were posted in the FS thread. Most cigars I don’t mind buying blind, but for the premium that Cohibas demand these days, getting at least a look at the wrapper color is a nice bonus when you’re forking over top that kinda dough 🤑

Thank you!

That's saying a LOT considering the amount of boxes you have no doubt received. Congrats.
