This is the smoke that caused me to ask about "dry boxing" and I would love some opinions.

    Love 'em, and can score them for a great price.
    They burn a little fast for the size though, IMO.

    I've gone through about 10 of them.....I don't remember ever dry boxing them & I don't recall any burn issues either.....

    * I have a new address as of 3/24/18 *

    I had them. Haven't had one in a long time. Got mine years ago before I bought my house. Not sure I have any left. I remember that first one didn't impress me but I think after that with some age they were better.

    I like them. Good construction, nice spice notes and a great value for the price point.

    The couple I had tasted like old shoes and moldy newspaper. That was a few years ago so maybe the newer stock is better.

    I like them a lot, and yes, dry-boxing is a good idea with them. They'll burn a lot better. Given a couple years in the humidor, no dry-box needed.

    Never had a skull crusher but if it is anything similar to the relic I may not need one.

    i never thought they were anything special. i remember them being tannic and in need of some serious age. ill see if i can dig out the ones that i put down a few months after they came out and give em a try.

    I love them, and they can be had on Sprint Sale for $62 for a box of 24! Dry boxing is a good idea.
