  1. Inventory

    No spreadsheet here. My "collection" is not so big that I easily lose track of what I have. Boxes are marked with date of purchase and vendor. If I had a spreadsheet, it could demonstrate that I have too many cigars and have spent too much money on them, and I'm afraid to face those facts.
  2. Cigar choice

    H Upmann Connie #1 or Juan Lopez #1s would be high on my list for this purpose. If small ring gauge cigars are acceptable, the Boli PC is a tasty little bugger and fairly economical.
  3. I suddenly feel very inadequate.
  4. Custom FOH Cubans?

    Always interesting to read about things that went on here prior to my joining. Like others, I'd be interested should any FOH Customs be offered in the future. But as @polarbear previously stated, the difficulty in meeting the demand would result is some folks getting shut out. Some would handle it well, and others would get all pissy. Can't blame Rob if he declines to do this again for just that reason alone.
  5. Glen Campbell

    You know you're getting older when the artists whose songs were the soundtrack of your youth are passing away. While Glenn Frey and the Eagles provided the soundtrack of my young adult years, Johnny Cash and Glen Campbell provided the soundtrack of my adolescent years. I remember watching Glen Campbell's TV show and enjoying his musical talents immensely. His suffering is over, and he's in a better place now. RIP, Glen Campbell.
  6. OK, point taken. You guys like spending my $$$, don't you ??
  7. Living in the US, it's more challenging to try various Cuban cigars, as I can't just walk into a local shop and pick up a few singles. One I'd like to try would be a H. Upmann Sir Winston. Can't bring myself to pull the trigger on a box of these without first trying a few.
  8. Yeah, I'm also a "read more/post less" kind of person, so I guess I better start posting more.
  9. Smoke 'em whenever you have the opportunity. I smoke cigars when I play golf, when I push-mow my yard , when I wash the car and when I take walks. Now, the cigars I smoke during those activities are not my "best" cigars, but they're not dog-rockets either. I save my "best" for when I'm able to sit back and focus on the cigar. But IMO, there's nothing wrong with smoking a cigar on a walk.
  10. Italy/Spain

    We need a JEALOUS button on this damn site !! Very nice. Thanks for the diary and the pictures.
  11. I have the palate of a billy goat, hence my descriptions of cigars is limited to one of the following: it's good - I like it ! it's not good - I don't like it.
  12. Milan Duty Free

    You're assumptions are correct, in that I'm flying out of Malpensa/MXP. Thanks for the information. I'll stock up at the LCDH's I visit, and if the DF shop does have something worth buying, well, budgets are made to be broken. Thanks again for the info.
  13. I'll be flying home through Milan, Italy in early August, and was wondering what I could expect when it comes to buying Cuban cigars duty free at the Milan airport. I plan on visiting the LCDH stores in Zurich and Milan, but am thinking I should save some of my cigar budget for the duty-free shopping experience. Thanks in advance for any information you are able to share.
  14. Wow - nice score !! Was that at Fincato ?? When I was there 2 summers ago, there were no LEs or REs.
  15. Am I missing the boat?

    The only cigars that I buy in tubos are those that are not offered without tubos, such as the Boliver #1. It does make the cigars easier to transport, but my preference would be to buy them without the tubos and save on the cost.
