  1. Well done ! And it's awesome to have that quality time alone with your brother. Special times...
  2. I was in Rome two summers ago, but really can't recommend any specific restaurant. At meal time, in whatever part of Rome we were in, we found small street-side restaurants, and the food and service was always excellent. Then again, I'm not a foodie, so a good pizza or some spaghetti carbonara kept me happy. The only decent cigar shop I found in Rome was Fincato. There are plenty of small tobacco shops that would have a very modest selection of cigars. Don't overlook the gelato shops. I hit a different one every day, trying different flavors each time. The only thing that saved me from gaining weight was that we walked everywhere. My dogs were barking by the end of each day. Good luck - Rome is a beautiful city and the people were wonderful.
  3. Like others who have posted, I'm a big Bolivar fan. My favs are the BBFs, #1s and BPC. Just picked up a box of the BCG, and liked the first one I smoked. Will let them set for a bit before digging into the box again. I'll probably cry when I smoke my last #1 and am not able to buy more. The one that doesn't do it for me are the BRCs. Something's off with the blend - just seems a bit too harsh for my tastes.
  4. This is a damn shame. The Fuentes are a wonderful family, and I hate to see this happen to them. Hope the cigars are quickly recovered.
  5. Are the spring rolls still available ??
  6. Both look quite yummy. Congrats !
  7. Like others here, I've never received any emails related to the 24:24. Off to check my account settings !
  8. I have a friend at the local shop that I have split boxes with in the past. Personally, I'd rather lay 25 cigars down for aging rather than 12 or 13, but he doesn't have a large cigar budget and this helps him out. Small price to pay to help a buddy.
  9. Absolutely not !!! Send those CCs to me and I'll store them for you. FYI - there is a minor bit of tobacco evaporation that occurs, so a few sticks might disappear.
  10. My birthday is Saturday, so I'll be firing up a few "special occasion" cigars at the local cigar shop. Don't like getting older but it beats the other option.
  11. Like others, I have nothing that I'm unable to open. But let me get down to the last two or three cigars in a box, then I'm a mental case.
  12. Probably 60-70% of what I smoke are non-Cubans. My go-to cigars are from Aurtro Fuente. The consistency and quality is hard to beat. From the green band 858s, Chateau Fuentes, Hemingways, Anejos, Opus X, Don Carlos, Magnum R, various vitolas of the aforementioned lines with Sungrown Wrapper - there is such a variety that I have cigars for every occasion. I am fortunate in that I am able to attend the Fuente Mania event each year at Holt's Cigar in Philadelphia, PA. This allows me to pick up cigars that have a somewhat limited availability at MSRP. Make no mistake - I love my CCs as well. But I do love the cigars from A. Fuente.
  13. No change here, but that is due to my lack of success at the 24:24s. I've been able to snag 2 boxes over the past three years. The timing of when it is posted is bad for me.
  14. I came down with a sinus infection twice several years ago directly after attending an inside cigar event where there was little to no ventilation. Since then, whenever I attend such an event, I use my Neti Pot as soon as I get home to flush any irritants from my sinuses. Don't know if it's that or good luck, but I haven't had a sinus infection since.
