  1. Cohiba Maduros

    I've tried less than a handful of Cohiba Maduro in different formats (I think Secretos and Magicos) but by far the standout was the Genios which I had in the past month on a quick trip back to the Uk with friends probably due to ageing.Enjoyable evening with Bollinger and Pol Roger [emoji39] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Correct H&F are the official release partners for the Talisman (Jemma Freeman own words when speaking with her in Cuba in March). There have been a few of these coming out of Cuba recently, always going to be some leakage....there's always someone who wants to make some coin. I suspect actual pricing is 50% less than what offered on the secondary. I never bought any Robusto Supremos when they came out as I hate the size, the Talisman slightly more appealing but Cohiba EL pricing always puts me off..
  3. Very pricey.Need to try them,the Monkey is my Chinese horoscope sign so checking if I like them enough to cough up for a full box! That Royal release is way too expensive,doubt I'll buy any as so many other good cigars for less money
  4. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Up next,I haven't smoked one of these in a long while and really enjoy them a lot.Smoke output is tremendous as is the flavor (how the hell do I rotate the photo!) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Not posted here in a long while.My weekend starts tonight as I'm off work tomorrow.Enjoying this Alex BHK 52 from my trip in March.First one I've tried out of the batch and glad to have let them sit till now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I only buy 5ers or singles of NC and have been meaning to try these for a while
  7. Always hard to keep hands out as CoRo really need some time...
  8. The Asian market as far as I can see from my few years experience has already had impact on the overall offering. I was in London last week and was speaking with a close friend who is a broker in the industry and we discussed the impact of Chinese buyers in the market. Simply put, if they want something then usually the cost is no objective and hence have driven up the pricing (at least in the secondary market). Some of these "low key" buyers have started posting on social media and they're collections are frankly astounding for lay man such as myself *jealous* This deal is surely going to have more impact upon the rest of the world.
  9. Max @PadronFan - last year I had a Connie A which out classed any CoRo I've had to date. Get some to try, I promise you'll enjoy them hence was pushing for that box split with you the other day I still love the Connie 1 that I've had but for my palate the Connie A is a better cigar (but then it should be for the price difference!)
  10. Nice review @jdouglas you may find me +20 blocks north of your location doing the same!Now debating what to smoke tonight,been eyeing up my one and only Mag 56 over the past few weeks waiting for decent weather
  11. Anyone been to Barcelona lately? My colleague is flying there tonight and asking me what to get! Which shops have had stocks of RE? PM me please!!

    The beauty of what a little time does for Cuban cigars-love this hobby cause of that 👊🏻
  13. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Well the weather is better so why not?First try on this Sancho Panza RE Serbia LUB OCT14.Initial thoughts-super smooth right from the start,mild to medium at most in body but loads of flavour!I've smoked one or two Sancho Panza in the past,a Molinos and Non Plus from memory so not overly experienced with the marca flavour profile.I always see Rob describe salt and driftwood.Not sure I'm getting that here but I know for my palate I'm really enjoy this over priced cigar.

  14. Smoked my first one last night after letting them rest from my March trip. I've tried having an open mind as I've read mixed reviews.To my palate the flavours really seemed muted.I didn't have much patience and put it down just after the first third and put to flame my back up cigar which was a Jorge Lopez rolled CCE size.That was good no questioning that! I rarely If at all pitch cigars-after the custom roll I tried the SLR again but still didn't improve. Not sure if age will help-will try in a few months Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Adding a few more Bolivar Corona Gigantes before it's too late.Thanks@seattledude for the split.[emoji1306][emoji1431] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
