  1. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Some Cohiba, with the 2006 Exquisitos and 2012 Piramides Extra gifted by @Trevor2118 (Thank you kindly!) The Exquisitos still had strength, despite being aged 10 years. I find the smaller sized Cohibas, including the Siglo I, still tend to pack a little punch even after resting for a significant time. In the Exquisitos' case, the difference between this one and a fresh one is that the mocha/coffee spine is mellowed in an aged one, and you'd get more of the citrus/honey flavours coming to the fore. The Piramides Extra was again outstanding. I love this torpedo cigar, pity they are so pricey! The thing I appreciate about them is how they have a succulent buttery texture to them, even when young. The Cohiba Short, as many of you have found out for yourselves, is an incredible purito!

    Thanks for letting us know @NSXCIGAR. I know El Pres touted these becoming more scarce a little while ago (like 18 to 24 months back) so I'm not surprised, sadly.
  3. Hi everyone

    Welcome to FoH, Sergio!
  4. If confirmed, then it's very sad news.

    Yes. It's the same size as the Cohiba 1966 Limited Edition released in 2011.
  6. Congratulations @Luca, @Diabolicalpherpher and @Wailbait!
  7. Aah karaoke...great memories. Thanks for the video Greg!

    Yes, believe it or not, I think the chief selector Trevor Hohns was quoted as saying that Marsh will bat 6 because as an opener in First-Class Shield Cricket this year he can handle the second new ball. Yes...that is the selectors thinking.
  9. Ashes 2017

    George Bailey has been in excellent form in the Sheffield Shield but was not even considered. He would have been a much better replacemen at No.6 than Marsh.
  10. I believe that would be a safer assumption, definitely. Perhaps others can confirm if Standard Band C bands were used into 2015. I'd have to check my photo archives to confirm one way or the other (when I get the opportunity).
  11. Unfortunately, no. 2013 would have been the year that Habanos S.A. started to put band Standard Band D on their Montecristo cigars. The Standard Band C bands would have been continued to be used until they were all gone, and that may have taken at least another year (or a little more). Below is an image of a PMU Sep 14 Montecristo Tubos and I know my AUM Jul 14 Montecristo 5's had Standard Band C bands on them too.

    OMA Ago 09 Ramon Allones Celestiales Finos Asia Pacifico Regional Edition...if you have these, are you still waiting to crack open your box? These have developed to around medium strength, and in my opinion, still have quite a few years in them if you'd like them milder. Cocoa, chocolate, leather, aged toasted tobacco and a fruitiness that is like morello cherries. Simply bliss!

    I hope you have a few of these left as the El Morro has been unavailable for a little while. It's good to see you enjoying them.
  14. As many may know, we had a karaoke segment to finish off Havanathon and the AC/DC song Thunderstruck was a fantastic way to close it! My Top 3 are... It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Want to Rock'n'Roll) You Shook Me All Night Long Back in Black
