Still waiting on the following.

#1 - left vendor (Aus) on 4/15
#2 - left vendor (Aus) on 4/21
#3 - Swiss vendor / Left Hungary 4/22

Received an e-mail from one of the bigger vendors today. Basically said if you can't wait well in excess of 30 days for shipping that you should delay your ordering until next month or later.

At this point might as well wait until summer is over.

I got that one to from iH looks like this

IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTICE
While we are doing everything we can to get you your cigars on time, the postal system is simply overwhelmed and large-scale delays are unavoidable.
Please do not order if you are not comfortable with your order taking upwards of 30 working days.
If you are not comfortable with the delay, we will do our best to honor any of our current specials next month (provided that inventory is available), when things hopefully clear up a bit.

so ya order and wait :cry:

Order #1:
Ordered 4/13
Shipped 4/20 and 4/22 with tracking
Arrived 5/17 and 5/20

Order #2:
Ordered 4/22
Shipped 4/30, no tracking
Still outstanding. I expect it 7-10 days from now.

Order #3:
Ordered 5/4
Shipped 5/13
Tracking still shows “Origin Post is Preparing Shipment”

A month used to be very normal. We got spoiled over the last few years with the 5-10 day arrival times!
I'm at 6 weeks today. Still waiting...

I do miss the 5-10 day arrival times!

Tracking magically updated 5/30 clearing ISC, and they arrived today, 6/2. So, just under a month total and just under 3 weeks in transit.

Cigars are super resilient, the conditions they are produced and stored in can be pretty rough. I'd let them reacclimate to your RH for a few weeks, but they should be fine.

I still have one out there from late April. I received the same email from the vendor saying they are working on it. Luckily it was my least expensive order.
