Not exactly bought recently .... but just found today in my lockers : Trinidad Fundadores EL NOSU ( El Laguito OCT 1998 ) bought in 2006 in Switzerland. Placed inside my lowest locker and to

I haven't posted in here for quite some time and thought that it would be nice to share some vintage cigars that just came in. I like to collect and smoke as many different vitolas de salida as possib

I don’t normally post my purchases but, aside from the Nudies bundles I ordered, the Lanceros will probably be the last cigars I receive for a while. The other two are highlights from my last few orde

Nice haul ….I wouldn’t worry about the serial numbers …I stopped checking those years ago after my first couple boxes ….if you are buying from a trusted vendor there should be no worries


Right on. I don’t think I checked the last couple orders before this because of the vendors. But it was weird when the 1/2 Coronas came back wrong.

RyJ Petit royales come back wrong systematically across the board.

If the micro printed numbers match the serial I'd assume half Coronas are fine. Usually if there's funny business it's people using cheaper warranty seals on more expensive cigars (MF serials on Sir Winstons) not the other way around.

Edit: for what it's worth I did a lookup of the serials on a box of Upmann half Coronas of mine and they registered as:

H.UPMANN HALF CORONA CB-UW-C/L-12,13-n-25

So it's not across the board but it may just be the specific mastercase yours came from that was misclassified.

Last delivery of the year here as well with a couple of elusive heavy hitters.  Had a bit of damage on one of feet of the lanceros (which kinda looks a bit funky so the box is under quarantine for a while) so will smoke that tomorrow evening as won't have time tonight.  Thanks to FOH for the great packaging on the JL No.1s and looking forward to trying one out after a bit of rest as well.  Happy New Year to everyone on the forum and our gracious hosts!  🥂🎉

Amp code? Do we have Lanceros rolling from another factory? or El Laguito now coded AMP?

Other factory, I think monte especiales are coming out of there too. El laguito is currently MAR.

Picked up a 5er of the Hector Luis Prieto BHK 56 x 6.5" custom rolls. Review from @Islandboy piqued my interest.  Wrappers look beautiful and will report back once the weather cooperates.


My 5er was also received today as well as a Papo robusto 5er.

Are these rolled with Cuban tobacco?

From what I gather the jury is still out on the actual country blend last I checked.  Not sure if you saw these two threads below, one with lots of discussion about the custom rolls and one with a review from @Islandboy that prompted me to pick up a 5er.  Let us know if you find anything further!
