The FX Effect

webmostwebmost Posts: 7,713 ✭✭✭✭✭
Okay so we have a mystery which I cannot resolve, and two minor probs easily resolved.

The mystery is that Partagas shows two lines on their web site: the 1845 with a cameroon wrapper, and the Black Label Clasico with a medio tiempo connie wrapper. I was rock certain I reviewed the Black Label Clasico and compared it to the Smithdale. I went back to the same store where I scored it, to the same shelf where I snatched it, and there were five boxes with different sizes, each box said Black Label Clasico; but, get this, the cigar bands on each stick say 1845! The picture I took for my review does not show the band, cause I'm an idjut. The wrapper on these here looks connie, not cameroon. The cello has a yellow cast, just as I remember. The odor from the foot, near as I can tell without unwrapping one and slobbering all over it, smells the same.

So I dunno. I am going with the probabilities here. I scored from the same shelf and same box so they are prolly the same as the one I thought identical to my favorite cheapie FX Smiths Sons stick.

Either way, Merry Christmas, here ya go. Let me know if you like the Smithdale maduro. Me, I love them.

That leads to minor prob #1: I went to the post office with the three packages that I do have addresses for, but there is no way I have time to0 wait in that Christmas line. I gotta return next week during off hours. Here I am working on a Saturday, I can't blow an hour and a half waiting for one single clerk to work thru a line out the door. I'll post trackin numbas here when they go

Minor prob #2: I seem to recall Rain moved since last I sent him. Anyone have his new address they can PM me?

Merry Christmas ... and don't forget who they named the day for

    Is where you live very densely populated with minimal post offices? Or, can you just not go during the "off" hours? Also, 3 people bout to get smacked!

    Jeepers. The one still in transit has only gone as far as Memphis.
