What's Your Latest Non-Cuban Purchase? II
 
G'day BOTL and SOTL!

Occasionally we get threads, which have simply run their course and other times, some have simply become so enormous that they become unmanageable. That's the case with the great thread, begun in 2009, by our beloved friend, Cigar Man Andy. Not only was Andy's thread 5 years old, but it had run up an astonishing 1065 pages!

That tells us that this is a topic, which garners extraordinary interest and popularity, while providing the community an opportunity to share their enthusiasm of adding to their ever-growing collections. So, it's in this spirit that I want to immediately create this follow-up thread.

My latest non-Cuban purchase is one of which I am particularly proud. Not only are they cigars I consider exceptional, but it was also a box split with a dear friend, fellow BOTL and respected member of Puff.

It's a box of 2012 Hundredth Anniversary Opus X Lancero, acquired by myself and Tobias Lutz. We met up at Milan Tobacconist in downtown Roanoke Virginia. Milan are an ORIGINAL Fuente account, having opened their doors the very same year Fuente were founded. Of course, we've both sequestered them into the deepest bowels of our humidors for a long nap and we look forward to sampling them together once they've awakened.

I generally like to give Opus at least two years, but they seem to hold up well to about 10. I have it on good intel that these sat around at Fuente for five.

My wife just rolled her eyes at me for the first time in a long time after I told her how much those were a piece :biggrin:

Yet another great example of the fun you can have when you get together with another Puffer at the local B&M!

I look forward to reading the thread when you two get together to pop the cherry on that box.

Honestly, I don't remember now (it's been a few weeks). I know that David gave us a nice deal on them though. ~$25 a piece.
