Don't bother trying to decode post-2003 codes. The general concensus is that it can't be done.

The Monte 2 OSE MAY06 code looks beautiful and smoke great. So who cares what OSE is?

The POS also looks to be a winner.

I have had a lot of luck in just entering something like: cuban cigar code pos in a search engine and it has been interesting to follow what comes up and see what vitolas and brands come up for the factory code. POS is the new code for the Bolivar factory (tho I just got a very nice box of Partagas Petite Corona Especiales made there that have been, to me, of higher quality than some of these I've had in the past - not bad smoke at under $4 each).
