Just got my Best Sellers #3 6 pack sampler from Famous Smoke in the mail today. Got some prime rib cooking on the Trager, can't wait to roast one of these after a nice meal tonight!

Always always always. Never damaged a stick and they don't taste any different than the ones I smoke right out of the humi's at cigar bars. Perhaps my taste buds are not as refined as others, but I haven't been impacted. When I get them in the mail I immediately put them in a Food Saver bag, vacuum seal, put in the fridge for one day, in the chest freezer (around 15 degrees F) for 3 days, then back to the fridge for one more, and then out of the freezer bag and into the humi.

I saw a thing where a guy did a blind test where he sent out cigars, frozen and non frozen, to like 15 people and had the people try to guess which were which. The consensus was that you couldn't tell a difference in flavor between the two. I've also talked to a few people who skip the fridge and go straight to the freezer and say its fine.

Currently smoking a Ramon Allones Superiores a La Casa Del Habano limited release. They're smoking very well at the moment.

Glad I grabbed a few boxes of these when they were released they're becoming difficult to get hold of.

Sounds good, and smart play on the bulk buy. I need to get my order in for some PSD4s and some Bolivar Royal Corona.

I'm happy to see all the new blood chiming in around here. Good stuff!!

The D4's are one of my favorite smokes ! Always a very consistent blend IMO.

I recently got around to trying the Partagas Serie E, they aren't to bad either very similar to the D4 with a touch more of a herbaceous undertone,the RG is a little big for me though.

The Royal corona is an awesome smoke as well, one of my favorite after dinner Cigars. I Love that I can chat about two of my favorite past times on the one forum !

Glad your makin work work for you!!

And I agree, it's nice having a place to talk stogies and beer. It's like killing two birds with one stone..... or assault rifle.... or however people hunt these days lol.
