    Default No dates on boxes


    0 Not allowed!

    Having recently bought my first boxes i was wondering why they don't have dates on the bottom like cc's do. Is there a way of finding out the dates they were boxed up? bough oliva, nub, joy de nicaragua rosalones and rosalones reserva.

    No there is nothing on 99% of ncs to identify date. Yellowing of the cellophane is a telltale sign of age though.

    Opus not generally but they have a number that relates to how many years after the line was started that you can work out.

    I always write the date of purchase on the base of the box in pencil as a starting point.

    thanks guys, i did wonder. I think they should as if anything they definitely mellow a bit with some age, and can be handy if its a spicy number like a serie g. I will make sure i write my purchase date on the box when i receive.
