I see someone has the Room 101 Master Collection One Papi Chulos 50-box on sale for $139.95 with freeship and free (probably crappy) triple-torch off-brand lighter.

Opinions on these? Never had them. 4x42 is not my ideal vitola, but if they're awesome and somewhat powerful (I like strength), I may order a box on speculation that I'll like them.

Whatcha think guys? I've heard the MC1 is the best MC of the three, and I constantly hear that Papi Chulo is a great vitola.

Thanks much!

I tried a fiver years ago (over paid as I recall). I liked them enough to keep bidding on them, but never won at the price I was willing to pay.
Currently pretty heavily stocked on San Andres wrapped cigars, or I probably be pulling the trigger.
Very good construction, and consistent, I thought it was tasty, and did pack a little punch considering the vitola.....but again....only a fiver....from several years ago.

It may have lost some power given that they’re likely at least 4 years old by now?
Upside is they’re good to go and a perfect winter smoke.
I have to shut up now before I talk myself into a box...

Thanks KingoftheCove. A few things are keeping me from ordering these.

The vitola, 4x42, is just too damned small for my tastes, I prefer a longer cigar experience for maximum relaxation (with a 4x42 I'd just be starting to get relaxed as it was ending) and I don't usually smoke outside in the winter, so keeping it short for temperature reasons isn't really a factor for me.

The other thing is, I recently bought a schitt-ton of the fantastic (IMO) Chief Cool Arrow (which is also San Andreas maduro-wrapped), but based on the blend description and all the reviews I've read, I seriously doubt these MC1s are as good as all the Chiefs I already have.

Also, I'm out of storage space, and I'm not putting another giant Sterilite container into service; I have far too many already.

Thanks much for the info though! For now I am resisting temptation!

Nice. For you, and anyone else reading this who has Chiefs, let me share two rules I and my pals (who ordered them also) have learned:

1. Smoke them SLOWLY or all the delicate, complex flavors and aromas disappear. True of many cigars, but ESPECIALLY important with the Chief.

2. DO NOT smoke them outside on a rainy day, or even a very humid day, or you run a high risk of them burning badly and tasting somewhere between lame and terrible. Bad things happen to them when you repeatedly draw moist air through them (which you obviously must, while smoking them outside on a wet/humid day). If smoking them outside, choose relatively dry days only. (Similarly, don't smoke them in humid indoor areas either).

I hope this info saves someone from wasting a Chief someday! Herfing
