I couldn't help myself - I opened the box of E.P. Carrillo Seleccion Oscuro so I can try ROTT tonight. Notice on the lower right of the box bottom - E.P. Carrillo date stamps the box. I assume this is the date it was packaged. The box lid fits very tight - I wish my desktop humidor fit this well!
Thanks, it's 2018. I tried one tonight ROTT and wasn't disappointed. I'm looking forward to giving them a little time in the coolerdor. I've been stocking up for the summer months. We travel full-time, so I may not be in one place for a long enough periods in the summer months to take advantage of online deals. In the winter we spend a few months in San Diego and then a few months in Arizona where I can watch for deals and stock up!
