skip the ryj no flavor

1. 10 ct d4
2. 10 ct of 898
3. 10 ct lusis or sig vi

Problem is quality of the sticks isn't that high in the 10 packs so I avoid them except for 08 lusis.

Thanks for the suggestions. I never thought about the quality over a box of 25. Figured the 10 packs would be from the same batches as the 25 box. Good to know.

It is odd, though some cigars I've seen are actually nice in the 10 cts like lusis and sig vi's. Also a lot of the time cabs of 50 are preferable but in some cases not, all depends on the cigar. I buy partagas shorts in cabs and they are outstanding vs. the dress boxes.

Jet, would you choose the D4 over a 25 box of Partagas Shorts?
post #7911 of 9983
I love them both, aged d4s are my favorite smoke but I tend to smoke more shorts because they're so convenient. There are times I come home from work and don't have the energy for even a robusto so I'll have a short. Every saturday morning I have a short at 11am with coffee too it's the perfect way to start the day. I've tried more complex/powerful cigars in the morning but they're not as good because my palate isn't ready for that so early on. Both are a must have though and the profiles are different in addition to the vitolas so neither is a substitute for the other.

Pick your objective.

Cant't decide on anything, just going for the Lusitanias for now, unless someone can make a great case for another.
Also, worth it to vacuum seal the box?

No need they usually arrive on the wet side anyway.

Will probably have a lusi tomorrow at the herf since I got some time to kill.

Happy Anniversary

Still trying to thin out some of the older or cosmetically damaged sticks in my humidor (bad storage habits when I first got into cigars), which lead to a sizable Padron 1926 last night and today's post-lawnwork choice: Carlos Torano Tribute 2004. I've never been a huge Toranos fan (had a lot of poorly constructed ones when I first started smoking), but this one was pretty good. I think if I hadn't enjoyed a damn near perfect '26 the night before I would have been even more impressed. Found an '03 Liberty in the bottom of my humidor as well, anyone know if it's got sufficient life to age it a little longer?

Czar might still have some 08 10-ct Lusi boxes...shoot them an email. They seemed to have tons. edit: Also if you want partagas 10 cts, and haven't already tried the 2010 EL, grab a box of those.
post #7917 of 9983
Grabbed a box of Lusitania's and also a box of RyJ shorts. Hopefully I get them before Friday, which is my 24th birthday!

Also, PM sent.

Wife and I are enjoying a couple of sticks on the porch. A La Gloria Cubana series N for me, a P.G. Gourmet for her (her first non-flavored cigar). Contemplating my first box purchase...either Padrons or Hemingway Classics, I think. Edit: Just finished the Series N and I am very impressed. I've had a few things lately that, while good, weren't necessarily going to earn a place in my regular rotation. The LGC is phenomenal, however. Surprisingly, I had a few pulls on my wife's stick and found it incredibly pleasant as well. One of a couple of milder cigars that I've tried recently and enjoyed more than anticipated. If I could have smoked any more of the Series N without burning my fingers continuously I'd still be on the back porch.

Smoking a My Father Le Bijou. Hit Federal Cigars in Portsmouth, NH while I was there. I can't resist visiting a B&M when I am vacationing. Picked up about 25 sticks that are now loaded in my relief humi. Probably won't need to hit my own B&M for a couple months now..

@fcuknu, included in that purchase were an assortment of Aurora 107. Thanks again dude, fine recommendation..
