Okay so what is your most consistent smaller Habano read on i shall explain.

Okay so here it is i think i have too much time on my hands. Sitting around all day i got to thinking about something @Perfecto Dave said. He spoke of the inconsistency from not only box to box. But even within the same box, i read his post this morning. Didn't think much about it, but sitting around all day watching water boil. Can do strange things to ones perspective. Or has it i grabbed 3 H UPMANN Half Coronas from each of two boxes i recently purchase. Setting aside for a moment were they where purchased. Color of wrappers etc.I did indeed notice a lot of variation between same cigars from the same boxes. Anybody else notice this with your favorite smaller Cigar?

BCJs.. had a few that were a little tight but with my limited knowledge my boxes seemed pretty consistent..

A little out of the box thinking.. the quints I get may be all over the map as far as wrapper color, but as far as taste and construction. They're very consistent. I've smoked a ton of these cheapies and never had one fall apart or cave my head in when I tried to draw on it.

Of course Quints will be consistent.
They’re the particle board of the lumber yard.

I found the Montecristo PE to be consistent.

The few boxes of RASCC I've purchased have been spot on.

Only because they were specifically mentioned. I’m not a fan of any smoke made of scraps, though I understand they have their place.
Sorry to hijack.
And now back to your regularly scheduled thread.

I think there is always inconsistent cigars in the same box be it wrapper color to tightness of roll.

From what i understand the picker who places the cigars in the box tries to maintain the same wrapper color uniformly throughout the box. The color will vary from darker to lighter from left to right. With so many rollers
rolling the same vitola and each having they're own tobacco to roll from it is inevitable that consistency will suffer.I know that they're rolling from the same harvest and the same field but while every plant is similar they still are each unique. (when you plant your garden tomatoes if you plant 5 same seedlings are each of them and their fruit exactly the same) I think the only thing that can help offset this is letting the box take a deep sleep not a short nap. Then again bro wtf do i know. just my 2 cent on that subject..

Hey, it's Cuba! There's certainly going to be some variation from box to box. Not always easy to say within the same box, though of course it happens. But it can be a matter of time and conditions too.

As for most consistent? I want to say Monte #5 is pretty consistent flavor-wise. But that's sure not absolute, just better than most.

And maybe surprisingly, among the most consistent small cigars for me are RyJ Coronitas en Cedros. Might sound like I'm making a joke with that - they do all look the same more so than most, seein' as they're wrapped in cedar. But, no, those little "cheap & cheerfuls" have been extremely consistent for me over a dozen or more boxes since I first got onto them some years ago. That's wrapper color, flavor profile, and draw.
