: Toro, Toro, Toro!!! Box pass


KASR

This pass will be dedicated to...you guessed it: the TORO size!!!!
In the last several months, the TORO has really become one of my favorite cigars for the duration of the smoke and the complexity that the cigar can achieve becuz it is using more tobacco - it only seems fitting to have a TORO-Pass for all the toro-size enthusiasts!

Since this would be my first pass since the CS to PUff transition, I will be stuffing the box with alot of gorilla-ish memorabilia! So whatever goes out of the box, try to replenish with something along that theme - OR - if your cigar site was assimilated as well and you have some sort of theme-sake item you can throw in there, please do so. Either way, let's have fun and remembering our roots while maintaining that the members make the site great - not the name of the site. :D

RULES: Got have em!!
1) You MUST have at least 100 posts or at least 3 I-Trader rating.
2) You must replace the pulled stick with a stick of equal or greater value.
3) You may take up to 5 sticks.
4) You must post your take/gives.
5) Tracking and DC# is a must!
6) 4 days after receiving the package to send to the next person.
7) US and Canada participants only.
Let's have some fun!

Not to be particular, thought I would bring this up before we get started.

While some manufactures use the term toro to describe the size of their cigar, many do not. The traditional size for a toro is 6 x 50. However the ranges given according to Perlmans's Pocket Cyclopedia is a length of 5 5/8" to 6 5/8" and a ring gage of 48 to 54.

So, are we going to go with the traditional size or is a cigar in the stated range acceptable?

Hmmm, very good question before this gets going. I would say that if the manufacturer says its a toro, that it can be added to the box. If more people want to keep it to the traditional size of 6 x 50 I am ok with that as well :biggrin1:.

baddddmonkey
05-09-2009, 10:11 PM
The toro's I have are mostly the same, maybe slight differences. I figure if the brand says its a toro, then I'm gonna use it! I don't think I have many in the traditional size though.

KASR
05-10-2009, 07:08 AM
I would say that the stated range is expectable, sine TORO sizes can be different from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Sounds good, I was going through my inventory and was having some trouble determining if some of the smokes were actually a toro. Perelman's is a good source. If you do not have a copy of the book you can get it on line at:

Those do look good! I've never really heard much about those Exiles. I've seen em around a few times in someones humi pics or something. If they are still around, I might have to pick one!

I was going to ask, like what Shawn did, If we take 2 or 3 cigars that have a higher price value. Would we be able to add a few more sticks? Just wondering.

I added stix because thats whats fun about a pass.


I don't get to hung up too much on dollar to dollar values...I think the ashton compares to the opus and the LFDs compare to the olivas. I may be off and it would not be the 1st time..

again my opinion is value is subjective...I am not really that big on opus or rp so those dont hold that high of a value to me. Ashton and Pepins are higher on the food chain.




On that same note...a DPG Blue for an opus wouldnt fly...:doh:




I hope I am not over stepping my bounds and hopefully Aaron speaks up.






Shawn

baddddmonkey
05-31-2009, 03:53 AM
On that same note...a DPG Blue for an opus wouldnt fly...


Haha...Yea, I figured that! I'm not sure the pricing, but even if they were the same. The Opus would be worth more because of the rarity of the cigar. Mmmmm Opus. I hope they stay in the pass long enough for someone who has not had one yet can get one!

The reason I was asking about pricing is because, I may not have higher valued sticks. I think the toro's I have may run in the $5-$10 range? I think I may just take a few, and then add the ones I was planning to add. That way give more chance for other BOTL's to try ones they have not had yet, and give KASR some bonus sticks when they get returned to him!

KASR
05-31-2009, 02:58 PM
I think Shawn hit the nail on the head with the value assessment. Just put/take what you think is fair - if anyone think it's lopsided, then people usually speak up....God knows, it's happened to me (and rectified, of course.)

Great takes/puts Shawn! If you haven't had the Coronado, I think you'll really like it - Lord knows, I do! Enjoy the stow-aways as well! :D

Awesome! I came home on lunch break just to drool over all the cigars again. Trying to decide what I want. Of course I want em all, but I can only have a few...too many to choose from!

Once again, many thanks to KASR and Shawn.

Okay, I am done drooling over the cigars and decided on what I want. It was tough and I choose the cigars I wanted to smoke and try the most! Also, I am just posting to also make sure that the cigars taken and cigars added are okay for the pass.

The four I took are: AF Anejo, Camacho, RP Edge Sumatra, 601 Serie Red.



Here is what I added into the pass!

La Aroma de Cuba, RP I-Press, Man O' War, 5 Vegas Limitada 2008, Oliva Connecticut, Taboo Special Forces, and Taboo Exotic Blend.



Anyways, Let me know if this is okay before I send the pass on....to the east coast! Who is it going to be? You will just have to wait and find out!

Thanks Joe, I love my camera! It is a Panasonic DMC-LZ3 I bought in late 2006. It only cost me around $150 bucks I think. It has been dropped twice, scuffed up and the preview screen is cracked. But it still works and takes excellent pictures! Either that, or it is me that takes the great pics.

I think its me.

The pass is going to be on its way tomorrow morning! I will include a DCN# later on tonite.

I hope it's not coming my way, at least not yet. I am leaving for the Aloha state for 10 days on Monday, and will be gone from the 8th to the 17th. The in laws will be here feeding the dogs, but they wouldn't know what to do with the pass. So if I can be moved to the end of the list I would greatly appreciate it and won't slow down the process.:hand:

http://imagestore.puff.com/2009/06/08/p_2636629_0.jpg
Opus X, Man O' War, Edge Sumatra, Coronado by La Flor, Saint Luis Rey, Olivia O Maduro



Here is what I am going to put into the box:
http://imagestore.puff.com/2009/06/08/p_2636629_1.jpg
Padron 1964 Anni Natural, A. Fuente Double Chateau, Onyx Reserve, Indian Tabac 10th Anniversary, Don Pepin Series JJ, San Cristobal



Hope those are ok with everyone :ss This pass was a blast and I look forward to smoking all these new sticks I haven't tried before :biggrin:. As for the box, it will be on it's way tomorrow to the next mystery Toro contestant. Who could it be??? :chk:chk

Oh, I also threw in a handful of 5 finger bags for anyone to take. About a year ago there was a group buy and I got 150 of them which I think was a tad too many, lol. So feel free to take what you need :).

baddddmonkey
06-09-2009, 11:41 AM
I was wondering where or how to make, find or buy those bags. They'd be great for bombing, and using to take some smokes with me while traveling. The travel humidor I have is larger....that way they to fly around as much when I'm driving!

The Pass arrived today!

Bomb from Strick

Strick got a wild hair when he shipped the “Toro Toro pass” to me! Or else he left the box unattended at the airport and some terrorists slipped a bomb into the box!

Luckily I saw his heads up on a “post it” before I touched the nifty 5 slot baggie. Otherwise I would be a “Goner”!! The bomb squad showed up to help me and they got their armored truck blown up for their trouble! He heeheeee

Look what I found besides the pass sticks;

An Olor Fuerte Magnum which is a 6” X 60 mega stick that is going to be 2 tons of fun!

A Gurkha legend toro. These “Legends” seem to deliver a smooth mediumish bodied smoke that is always a pleasure. Although I have never had one in a toro size, my instincts say this will be an idiot-proof really enjoyable schtick!

5 Vegas series “A” box press overgrown toro that looks to be very interesting! These guys are "all maduro-all the time!" Oh Yeah! Twill be my first!

A Carlos Torano signature collection honest to goodness toro! These have a Brazillian grown Maddy wrapper and ligero filler!

and a 601 Red Label Roby that the reviews say is going to have some very interesting blends of spice to it! Yummy! :dr


STRICK!! Thank you Very Much for this Unexpected Treat!

What a guy!

As for the box? It's being re-packaged and sent to sevicemen/women overseas. I have a friend who is stationed over in Iraq - when i first started my new job, he was very helpful in regards to his part in the company (having worked in I.T.) then a few months later he received his deployment orders....so he's been over there for alittle over 8 months now and this will be a perfect gift package to him from all the good puffer fish and gorillas. Thanks for helping it happen and I'll update the thread with pics (which I will request he send back to us!) :D
