I had been a fairly regular cigar smoker for more than 15 years before I joined this forum, but I am constantly amazed at the new smokes that you guys are exposing me to. Most recently the RyJ Short Churchill. Someone offhandedly suggested it to me and I threw a box of 10 in with a recent order almost as an afterthought. They are dated May 2011 and have been in my cooler for about 4-5 months. I had a friend over for dinner last night and afterwards we went out to the deck to drink a few beers. It seemed like a good time to give these guys a shot so I cracked open the box. I really wasn't expecting much, but in the end I really loved this cigar. The best part is that this isn't some rare Opus or limited edition Tatuaje that you have to chase down and pay three times the already inflated retail price for, these guys are readily available and relatively inexpensive. So, in short, thanks for the tip!
