Super stoked for the box pass. I'll just ask now for a refresher on how this works and any boxpass etiquette I wouldn't know about since this is my first time

I included a little letter in the box, but the basics are you can take anything out of the box you want, as long as you replace it with something of at least comparable value. I also pre-printed the shipping to make everything as smooth as possible, so to cover your share of shipping you can just toss in an extra stick or two. Also, make sure to post when you get the box!

Once you've done whatever swapping you like, re-pack everything as securely as possible, stick the next label on, and drop it off at the post office. I've got a 60g Boveda in there that should be plenty to keep the cigars fresh during the journey.

If this all goes well it could be fun to do it every few months, weather permitting. Now that I've got all the pieces together it should be really easy to do again.

I would love to make the pass a regular thing! I think something I had wanted to include in the box won't quite be ready by the time it gets to me, and I don't want to bogart it 😹

Had a GTO La Cura earlier and it was real nice. It's gorgeous out so I'm settling in with some Glenfarclas 12 and a Tatuaje black which I've not had before.

Related question-do you guys do anything differently when lighting a closed foot? I usually mouth light to taste the wrapper and then toast some more to make sure it lit evenly

Edit: Does Pete Johnson ever miss? Goddamn this is nice.

Yeah those black labels are stupendous.

I don't really change anything up with a closed foot. I'll toast a little longer to make sure I've got an even start, but that's about it.

Just scored a little banger of a Cuban order,

5 Juan Lopez no. 2
5 PL Picadores
5 SLR Regios
4 Diplo 2
4 ERDM Choix Supreme
4 QdO 54

I haven't tried any of these before so I'm pretty jazzed to not have to buy boxes or deal with box splits of each one.

Woo WOO, Look a Parrot...
LOOK AT IT!


ERDM CS are the best flavor of any regular production Cuban IMO. if they were a little stronger Iíd probably only smoke them.

Padron anniversarios would be a nice 40th birthday stick. I think they even have a 40th

They do have a 40, but itís a Series 1926. And quite good.

Had my first yard-gar mowing the lawn, an AF short story. It's clear as hell here in the PNW so I think we'll sit outside around the fire tonight and I'll find something a little more substantial. I don't often smoke 2 in a day but it's nice enough out and I'm sore enough from yardwork I think I've earned it

Smoked a little Tatuaje Havana VI Verocu today. Great little short smoke, nice and punchy. I smoked a Rose of Sharon lancero yesterday and it was very pleasant, and the strawberry notes floated it in very subtly at the end. Very nice.

They finally fuckin came!



I, obviously, have pulled a Bolivar PC to smoke right off the truck. We'll see how effective those little Boveda packs were.

Box dates are great, too. Latest one is from June 2019, so these boys might need a little rest but otherwise are fuckin ready.

The humidor is extremely powerful right now. Hopefully those LAdC Rothschildes are going to be ready this Friday, it'll have been a few weeks since they got here.

I got the box for the first leg of the box pass. There are a lot of great sticks in here, this should be a bunch of fun!

Hell yeah! Glad it showed up safe! Me and my buddies tried to really fill out the box with fun stuff. I'm looking forward to how it progresses.

I smoked a lovely MF Opulencia corona tonight.



I don't know what I can say that hasn't been said. Lightly spicy, rich, perfumey, and well-built. The burn wandered a couple times but we recovered. Friendly evening smoke.

My last H.Upmann AJ. This might be the most underrated smoke out there. I never see people talking about it but they should be. Well made, affordable, and quite tasty. Nutty and creamy with a really nice citrus note that you just don't get all that often. These are a steal if you pay 100 a box like I did.
