  1. i retract my suggestion of throwing #3 out. let it roll and lets get on with the rest of the comp. @awkwardpause #ftw #lol #everyonetranquilo #dohashtagsworkhere Sent from my SM-G955N using Tapatalk
  2. i honestly dont care about the inclusion of the hupc. robs house, robs rules. we're fortunate that he puts up as many comps and events to keep the community together as it is. not to mention the service they offer. with that being said, i think the best way to negate this is to just take #3 out of the mix for the final results. no one gets credit for it. best guesses out of 4 wins. whoever guessed #3 right, still gets their $25 usd credit but whoever didnt guess it correct is not out of the competition for best out of 4. ties are still divided equally among the final winners. im just amazed at how many 50/50 guesses i miss. shows how valid (not very) marca characteristics really are lol . i will no longer miss hupcs since i thought they were bpcs.

  4. Oh very nice! Thank you very much Prez and crew for the contest. Its always great to be "forced" to smoke certain cigars for contests. Sent from my SM-G955N using Tapatalk
  5. Mag 46s are one of my favs and I was fortunate to get a few of these in a trade with a great BOTL about 2 years ago. I smoked 1 about a year ago and honestly wasnt impressed compared to newer vintages so we'll see how this goes. Box code USE JUN 08 from a 50 cab. First puff starts out with a touch a cream at the fore and a dashing of leather. Wood intertwined throughout. Very light flavors overall but a smooth smoke. No harshness at all which i love about aged cigars. 2nd third is more of the same with the cream rounding coming out more along with the wood notes. Toasted tobacco is good and the smome is still smooth as silk. Last third and i get a few draws of fudge brownie which takes me for a surprise. Just a few, and very light, but very rich. Smoke closes out with nothing fancy to add. Overall, good smooth smoke that may be past its flavor peak. Nothing to write home about and as mentioned, i think i prefer more recent releases of this one. Admittedly, i dont have much aged stock, and most that I have smoked, have seemed flat, like this sample. On the other hand, one of the best smokes that I've ever had was a Mag 50 from 08. Im just glad that i now have a good stock of my own to age and sample. Sent from my SM-G955N using Tapatalk
  6. Wood, different type of wood with some chalkiness, cedar, wood, pepper on the retro, hints of baking spice mixed in here and there with an occasional light fruity sweetness. Nothing stood out except for the wood and none of the other flavors really grabbed my attention. And the wrapper was a very dull, dry looking light colorado. Sent from my SM-G955N using Tapatalk

  8. Trying to get a box of cigars or two for my son's birth month. I want something bigger than a PC and the few times I've seen non-PCs with ABR 17 offered on 24:24, I missed out. Seems like they didnt roll bigger cigars during that month. Looking at other options now and was wondering which box code would be preferred between LAU ABR 17 and SOM ABR 17 for Punch Punch. May not be much of a difference at all but just wanted some input/opinions. Thanks in advance. Sent from my SM-G955N using Tapatalk

  10. Also, similar sized type minis & cigarillos? CoShos are already pretty awesome and great on their own or as a way to fill that void left behind that last puff of a good normal sized cigar. Im just wondering if they can/will get any better. Sent from my SM-G955N using Tapatalk

  12. 1st third started put with a damp mustiness that wasnt off putting. Reminded me of an NC i used to like when i first started smoking cigars 6 yrs ago. Lots of wood on the retro. Theres a slightly rich savory almost umami like flavor going on. Not strong but it's there. Very mild beginning overall 2nd third and the flavors start getting bolder which im liking. The dampness increases and the wood that was prominent on the retro is mixing in with the normal smoke. Theres a flavor that kind of reminds me of red ginseng without the bitterness. Final third not much different from the 2nd. Some espresso notes join the fun. Overall a better than average cigar, although the flavors arent typically up my alley. Nice change of pace. Im assuming this is recent production and if it is, id be happily surprised at how well it smoked. Sent from my SM-G955N using Tapatalk

    Ive got a few of these lying around somewhere from about 4-5 yrs ago. How are they now? Sent from my SM-G955N using Tapatalk
  14. This was from one of Rob's clearance. I was torn between this a #2, a #2 custom w/ extra ligero, a fuerza, an RGPE or one of the bolis. I stuck with this due to the time factor. Got a few fingers of Old Overholts Straight Rye, which I think is the BEST valued rye out there and great for everyday consumption. Vcut in and the cold draw brings a sweet musty barn smell mixed with tinge of citrus. 1st light and draw brings on unrefined chocolate. Reminds me of the chocolate bits that are a popular diet snack in Korea right now. The smoke leaves a dry after taste but that could also be because im on weight loss pills. The 1st third continues to bring that unrefined chocolate forward while a slight "twang" starts to build. Moving into the 2nd third, the dry after taste has made the chocolate into a cocoa powder. I can literally feel the powder stuck on the roof of my mouth. The twang becomes more prominent and becomes something in between an orange and a lemon. The rye is going nicely with the cigar as the spice is playing off the cocoa. Red chili flaked chocolate. This diet is killing me. The retro is awesome and gives me blasts of sweet cocoa. Going into the final third the i start getting some cream and the cocoa note turns dark. The citrus is all but gone. I slow down my puff rate to ease the heat and the damn thing went out! No worries. A relight later and we're still good to go. Or so I thought. About 3 puffs in and the cigar turns bitter on me. So I pull the curtain on this one. Maybe it's a blessing in disguise. I should have enough time for that RGPE. Happy Easter Weekend everyone! Sent from my SM-G955N using Tapatalk

    How was this? I have a MOS AGO 09 cab that's in my locker. Wondering if i should have it shipped and crack it open. An 08 i smoked 2 years ago was one of the best cigars i ever smoked. Sent from my SM-G955N using Tapatalk
