This happens to be the first time I've laid eyes on some "real" cuban smokes. I just pulled these guys out of the mail box and I couldn't be happier. Thanks a ton to bigunit66 for setting me straight.

Very nice package to receive in the mail. They look tasty, give thanks cause even where I'm located in Canada I might as well be in the U.S cause it's damn near impossible to get them here too. Crazy tabacco laws prohibiting the sale of tabacco from one province to another and no local B&M's for at least half a days drive.

Great start.

Not exactly a gift but he was nice enough to take a chance with me.

I'm pretty excited. Like a teenage kid and a new pair of shoes. I'm gonna let them settle down for a little while before I give one a go. It's gonna be tough to resist them. Lucky we are celebrating valentines day this weekend so it will keep me out of the house and away from them. Otherwise I prolly couldn't resist.

Any suggestions on which I should smoke first? I'm told they all have over a 1-2 years of humi time under the belt.

Hey KF, send me an email and tell me where you got those! Congrats on your persistance! You remind me of ME.

Are they from a different source than we've discussed recently?

As far as which one I'll start with, I think the epi 2 is the most appealing. The dark colored wrapper and a sweet smell of sorts. Not to mention it's the 2x choice.

Not sure. Is that a Party Short, PSD4, Monte 2, Epi 2, CoRo and Sig III?

It all depends on my mood, time of day, what I ate, how I'm feeling, what I'm drinking, etc....PSD4 is my least favorite for sure though. All good looking. enjoy!
