@iam6884 got package today. I tried to be cute by sending my fav sticks and you gave me an amazing butt whooping. Thanks so much. I have only tried one of these in the past.

So, the package from @BasicTek arrived yesterday. Tim, you are definitely not a new smoker, my friend. He lit me up with what I can only describe as a Fat Man of a bomb. Three of these are new to me, and the rest are all solid smokes in my book. Enough rambling. On to the pics:

First up, a fine assortment of 8 NC's:

Of these, the LFD Anny, and Cohiba are new to me. Pretty impressive!

Also in the package were 7 CC's:

One great assortment! Of these, the Trinidad is new. And finally, the note:

This is a superb set of sticks. And from the looks of it, we have similar tastes, which makes it easy for me to return fire. The AF, Julius Caesar, Oliva V, And My Father are all stocked in my humidor. Thank you brother. I'll rummage through my humidors today and get you a package headed out by tomorrow.

EDIT: Forgot to ask, and I missed your intro thread. How long have you been smoking? This assortment tells me quite a while. Not a single Gurhka, or Victor Sinclair in the bunch!

Thanks for the kind words and post. I've smoked some cigars but it was sparce over the years and only via B&M. As an ex cigarette smoker for 26 years (due to damage it did to my lungs) I was reluctant to pick up any smoking due to fear it would cause the same problems. I really enjoyed the few cigars I smoked and researched the health implications for regular cigar smokers that didn't inhale. Decided to go all in and bought my 1st 3 boxes (Cohiba Corona's on sale for around $7.50 a stick) So had I joined the forum in October last year you would have received cohiba's Gurkha, dominican H upmans, CAO CX2, Sucker Punch, rocky P, and non cuban Partagas.

I found CC's in early November and had purchased about 500 by the end of December, I also joined the forum in December (intro thread). Anyway smoking about 100+ cigars a month for 6 months now I have seen my tastes swing all over the place and I now love a wide variety of CC's and NC's. I've been trying to get into the trading zone but can't seem to locate an admin so I figured I could at least start here.

I'm looking forward to getting my 1st trade. Hope you enjoy PS even though NC cohiba's are no where near my favorite, nor worth anywhere near the price they charge, I have an overflow and they aren't really bad, especially after 6 mos rest in the humi.

-Tim

I've already got 7 humidors (3 coolers) taking space in 2 bedrooms. My wife is beyond pissed at that. I'm not allowed anymore lol
Jesus man, if you're smoking 100 per month and STILL have 7 humidors stuffed, you definitely have a case of CAD. Cigar Acquisition Disorder.
I dont feel so bad about my buying a box per paycheck for the past 5 months then. I only smoke around 10 per month though

That is 100% true. I love smoking and so far no adverse health issues like cigarettes. This stupid lockdown has made it worse now I'm at home 90% of the time! If my nasal passages could handle it I have the time to smoke 5-7 but they get burnt out after 4 so that's where I stop usually.

Edit sorry you had to get stuck with the wacko newbie this time Robert.
