  1. Hello from Massachusetts

    Welcome to FOH! Im also from MA, the forum is filled with a wealth of knowledge on habanos, provided by some truly great people! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. 2018 Habanos Released

    I'm surprised there hasn't been much discussion of the potential Cohiba Robusto Gran Reserva release? The Siglo VI Gran Reserva was hugely anticipated and lived up to its hype (from what others described) wish i had the chance to try one! Do we think this will perform as well? Pricing I'm sure will be top of the mark but from reviews it was well worth the price. Can someone refresh my memory on what the last cohiba gran reserva opened at price wise? And thoughts on the potential next release, reading posts of the Cohiba 2017 EL has me abit concerned regarding youth so with this being aged with leaf from 2004 I'm hoping for this stick to be a knockout, the most recent cohiba robuto's have been exceptional Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Enjoying an Epi 2 after a long day on the course, was the tail of two nines, said to a buddy I am consistently inconsistent, is September too late for a lesson in New England? Haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Tapatalk not working?

    same here, won't accept my password, the website works but much slower than usual. I notice an update was done to the site graphics, I'm guessing that has something to do with it.
  5. Well Im still drooling after reading @johnS review on a Cohiba Gran Reserva, think I have now read every post on this forum about them lol, If they were obtainable I would definitely be trying one! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Amazing review John! You sir are a lucky man to have smoked such a stunning cigar. The flavor description sounds mouthwatering. What an experience! Lets hope the rumors are true and they bring back another gran reserva! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Trinidad Robusto Extra

    Excellent review on one of my favorite smokes!

    Enjoying the hot New England weather with a HDM petit robusto from a recent split, spectacular drawn and burn, white flakey ash, flavors are somewhat floral and light, might need a little more time down to really develop but I do see that sweetness everyone is talking about. This was a great pick up [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Trinidad

    I find trinidad's are super smooth with age. They are full of cream and sweet tea. An aged trinidad robusto extra is by far my favorite. A lot of members on the forum love the colonials for its honey character but I have yet to find it. Always been curious to try a robusto T but they are extremely hard to find. So can't offer much on its flavor profile. Lets bring back the debate about whats better the T-Rex or robusto T. Looking forward to a few other opinions. Oh and back to the original thread, I completely agree pig tails rock. Something about that extra detail makes it so appealing.

    Everyone is raving about the HDM PR's lately which means I need a box haha, was this out of a fresh box? Box code?
  11. 'Box Date' on 3 Packs?

    The box code stamp is usually found on the inside flap of the bigger outside box that contains the 3 packs, don't believe the individual 3 pack boxes carry any markings Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. smoking a HDM Des Dieux

    I actually had a very similar experience with a 2010 DD. The draw was extremely tight and the only flavor present was toasted tobacco and was almost harsh. I could only get through half of it before I pitched it. The draw was unbearable. I have a few from 2003 that I'm hoping will be full of vanilla as others describe. I'll chock it up to a dud and hope the others shine.
  13. Nice Job! Great write up, thanks for sharing!

  15. Let's talk Cohiba BHK again...

    I completely agree the comparison is very difficult, not only by availability standards but also price point, The 2006 is definitely in a class all by itself as it was designed to be, I am more curious as to why the current production stock is lacking so much flavor while the 2006 which sparked the initial interest in the line and was such an amazing smoke. The evolution so far doesn't support the price point or the interest , however I am told the first batch of 2010's were outstanding but a significant slide has occured since, so what do we think happened? I think we can all agree they are great smokes that have a uniqueness to them but will age help the muted flavors develop or is the line pure hype based upon the 2006 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
