Awesome box but man these things are small.

If the month had gone differently for me (or, my daughter, to be more specific), I probably would have jumped on one of those, as well. Now that you have it, though, next time I personally recommend going for the 10/10 (100 total) case of Trinidad Shorts, which are about the same size and (in my opinion) are a wee bit better. Not knocking your purchase at all -- I'm kinda bummed I didn't get in on it. Just saying that if you like the option for such a small/short smoke, compare the two and see which you like better.

Great point and suggestion...I don't think I have had the Trini shorts; in fact I was just talking about that with Chester. We will see how they do...I am not a fan (that I know of) of that size of cigar, but could not pass up the deal and the humidor is pretty cool. I prefer more of a PC that will give me 30-45 mins, not 15-20 mins.

To each their own I know on this so I'll give my conflicting opinion
I have both at home right now
Cohiba shorts - Win on flavor and I feel like they burn a little slower and more even.

Trinidad shorts - A little more harsh on flavor and they burn like they are much dryer (kept beside eachother in the same Cohiba humidor in my humidor for easy storage. I will say I like the 10ct boxes that my Trinidads came in. I am not sure how the Cobiba's come when not purchased in the humidor.

What was this deal you guys speak of, and why wasn't I informed! Those are Montana winter sized smokes.

I'll say this about that Opus 22 set: I'm not a fan of Opus, smoked through probably a box of singles of different sizes and they just don't fit my tastes. However that box set has always been gorgeous looking and the new one is on a whole other level! If I had enough extra cash that I wasn't spending other cigars or WOAMs or Between the Lines, I'd spend it on the Opus 22 set. Just to have it to look at!
