I’m hoping to leave a few of those boxs alone so they age a few more years

i keep my smoking supply I’m the house
Usually 75 to 100 sticks in one humidor of strictly Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco


I’m setting up another 75 stick box for
Cuban Tabacco.
I stayed away from Cubans for a very very long time , way to many counterfeits, and even the real ones are very inconsistent due to poor quality control in Cuba.

But I have a friend that’s gotten very involved in Cuban cigars as of late and turned my head slightly , so I’m going to dip a toe back in

A good vendor make all the difference.
I have a few boxes from 08 that are smoking very nice.
I also got the dreaded letter and kind of backed off, just not
worth the problem.

My biggest issue was and is the sheer amount of counterfeits
Some good smokes but fake just the same

the second thing to me is the poor burn on so so many of them

but as I’m bit doing the leg work ,am confident that my friends done his due diligence and has the expertise to ferret out fakes and I get to sample most everything prior to purchase

ill jump in take 100 or two and lay em down for a few years sampling now and again

That's pretty much what you need to do rest or age them awhile.
From what I understand they don't age their tobacco it goes from field to rollers.

that's the best way.
I just play dumb, acted like I didn't know what they were talking about
I guess they destroyed them by fire, one at a time.

I ordered five boxes, two made it through three got snagged.
I called the vendor because delivery is guaranteed he resent them and they made it through.

I don’t get the letter
Cany be careful on the street I’m not kidding there are more counterfeits on “ the street” than real cubans

many actually look good and smoke well
But are fake just the same
I’m so head shy of anything banded
Choiba
Monti cristo
Partagas

I have a friend not the same guy that gets mine ,has tens of thousands in “ Cubans” sitting in his humidor
Some boxs that are traded at 2000.00 a box “ limited edition” bla bla

they all look very very good but upon close inspection , they are all counterfeit and I’m talking a lot of cigars ,

If you dabble in cubans be very very careful do lots of research on pricing and bands , box markings and labels
And for lords sake if a box esplenditois is 200 run for the hills
