RASS - MSU OCT 18.  Fabulous box.  Only a couple left that I’m kind of saving for a friend to verify they are special.  A have a few other boxes (different codes) that are also very nice, but just one notch below.  This box has made me a huge fan and I’ll be chasing them for a while.  My buddy better get here soon…

Monte 4 - I‚Äôm always down for one. ¬†Mine are all ‚Äė18-‚Äė19.

Tatuaje Black Label Corona Gorda - I have old and new releases.  Awesome cigar

Rocky Patel Decade Robusto - One of the few Rockys I like all that much.

Padron Family Reserve 50 Natural - Get some

Upmann sir winston 2014  pound for pound the best thing in my humidor. I lie about not having any left when certain friends pop up. 

RA Gigante 2020. Best golf course cigar hands down. You don't have to pay attention to get it, but if you're paying attention it will surprise you. 

Fonseca no 1 2014. Cheap! At least compared to how it smoked. Great pickup on 2424. 

Trinidad fundador 2014. Need I say more? Must be smoked indoors or with minimal wind. Good contemplation companion. 

Montecristo especial 2012. Elegant substitute for those times when you feel nostalgic for a glass of chocolate milk.

Monte 4. Have managed to score various aged boxes from 24:24. Current one I'm smoking through is a '16. 

QD 50. These are so popular the prices are going up. I need to restrain myself otherwise I will run out.

Nudies Carlota. Have probably a dozen left and hoping covid fecks off so we can get new batches.

Connie 1. Absolutely love these and still can be had for a reasonable price. 

Finally, plpc. Still to come of age but some sticks show the occasionally flash of caramel. I get it and I know I'm committing infanticide but at around $6 a smoke there is no better value.
