  1. Something for you to sit back and enjoy this Sunday...
  2. H. Upmann No 2 | Holgate Mt Macedon Australian Pale Ale|Holgate Temptress Choc Porter by KBG Today, it was the turn of the H. Upmann No 2. This is not a cigar that often comes within my radar – no idea why and after this one, that must change. Good construction, clean flavours, it started with some fresh woody notes. But it did not take long to move to much richer, deeper, darker flavours. Some roasted nuts but there was a lovely molten chocolate wave. I love a cigar that gets better as you smoke it, finishing with a crescendo. And that was exactly what happened here. A cracker! 94 for me. This was a cigar that could happily spend a lot of time in the humidor, but I wonder if any need. Smoking so well now. Continue reading here:
  3. Bon Voyage Greg

    I could honestly go on for days about FOH and everyone involved but I'll keep it as short and sweet as I can. Still remember my first day and the 'interview' with Smithy. I say interview but he had no idea what was going on or who I was. Lisa is that bubbly and loud person you need in every office. Whether she's singing and dancing to the radio or screaming at the printer, she's always up for a laugh and putting a smile on your face. Then I met Di, my second mother. If you think you have a good work ethic then you need to meet Di, she'll put anyone to shame. Can't thank you enough for all the support you've provided over the years. Initially I was terrified to meet Rob, the almighty ruler, El Pres... But he's genuinely one of the nice guys in this world. I will be forever grateful for your generosity towards me. You mentored me throughout my 5+ years with FOH, given me infinite opportunity, helped me grow and I am better for it. To the FOH community, you've welcomed me with open arms and I've loved every minute of it. I've met some great people and made wonderful friends. Thanks for your kind messages and well wishes for the future. It'll be strange not coming into the office every day and seeing all these people that have become my extended family. This isn't goodbye completely, I'll still be around doing the video reviews and popping my face in from time to time. Big love xx
  4. Ramon Allones Specially Selected – Sanchez Ayala ‘20 Anos’ ‘Galeon’ Oloroso Sherry by KBG Been working my way through Greg’s selection for Kenfessions and will confess (kenfess?) that the first couple have not been stellar. The other evening, pulled out the Ramon Allones Specially Selected. I used to enjoy these but to be honest, I had not had one for ages. No idea why that happened – not deliberately. One of those things. Also, no idea why Greg chose this one, but way to go, Greg. Made me wonder why on earth this fell out of the rotation. It was a really terrific smoke. Continue reading here:
  5. Easter Review Competition

    Hope you all had a great Easter break! We had a massive number of entries into this one, thanks to all that participated. The most liked review was @Akela3rd for his chocolate cigar. Random Picker then pulled @MooseAMuffin and @FatherOfPugs from the hat. Congratulations to the winners! Send me a PM with your shipping information when you get the chance.
  6. No commission (@El Presidente, hook me up ) but the ROI is just far too great not to pick them up when you have the chance.
  7. Monday Funny: Looking at the shopping cart to see how many people tried to use this coupon
  8. Hoyo de Monterrey ‘Le Hoyo de San Juan’ | Blanton's Gold Edition Single Barrel Bourbon By KBG I suspect that Greg chose this pseudo-baseball bat deliberately to test me. The immediate impression anyone will have is of a monster ring gauge. For me, we are now in the realms of the absurd. 54. Seriously? But it looks well constructed. I have read of underfilled cigars in this line. No such issue here. To be honest, these had not registered with me prior to this one. They came in, in 2014, but to the best of my recollection, I have never smoked one before. This is, of course, the moment when someone will instantly link to a review Rob and I did of them at some stage and where I no doubt raved about them. Continue reading here:
  9. Cohiba Medio Siglo | Laphroaig “The 1815 Legacy Edition” By KBG Saturday evening, long week and a family birthday lunch – it felt like a cigar evening but, to be honest, normally I probably would have skipped it as all too much trouble. Then I thought, what about that stumpy thing? Perfect. So, I fired up the Cohiba Medio Siglo and, given the discussion on the forum, went for a really good Islay malt, the Laphroaig ‘1815 Legacy’. This was a one-off release from the current distiller to honour his predecessors, from “first-fill, over-charred ex-bourbon barrels, before further maturing in large, new European oak hogsheads”. It is a really good Islay. Continue reading here:
  10. Went to get the latest review off of the camera and found this hidden in the internal memory... Enjoy!
