  1. Hmmm, Ken's deck didn't make the cut?
  2. Pinball Arcade. Faithful recreations of classic pinball games (physics, sounds, graphics, etc...). This is an awesome way to play the pinball games you remember, without having to deal with owning one (I'd still love to, but don't have the space or funds). The iPad is perfect for this one, as a phone would be too small.
  3. FWIW: I'd say fake, based on the rough look of the stick and how the white squares on the band align. In particular, the squares around the Cohiba name and the hologram below it on the back of this stick look suspect, as every real Behike I've seen has the edges of these boxes align with the edges of the white squares evenly. Cubancigarwebsite has good images of these bands for comparison.
  4. I've almost always straight cut 'me, but now that I know this is a "Dickman Cut," I'm sold! LOL
  5. What, you were thinking that someone should know someone should know something about the topic before offering an opinion?
  6. Twin boxes of HdM Elegantes from a recent 24:24. I love the Party Presidente, love HdM, and haven't disliked an LCDH release I've tried, so I have high hopes for these!
  7. Willett 2 year old rye is one of my favorites, alongside Rittenhouse. With the 2yr, you can taste that it is a young whiskey, but I think to somehow works with the spice of the rye. Willett also has 6, 7 and 8 year ryes, but those are not actually their own mash.
  8. Personal Kryptonite

    +1 for snakes. +100 for snakes that swim. Ugh... nothing more evil than snakes in the water with you, straight up nightmare material!
  9. Siglo III & IV from a recent 24:24. Wish I had a flash to showcase the wrappers on the III, the iPad photos don't do them justice!
  10. Cleaning Your Carbon Steel

    I love this stuff: The only places I've ever seen Flitz products are old-school hardware stores and West Marine, but it's available online. It is non-toxic, but be sure to wash your knife well with dish soap after polishing, then dry well and apply a tiny amount of oil. I use coconut oil on my knives, as it doesn't go rancid if it gets into a little nook you can't reach, and it's supposed to be anti microbial.
  11. Great looking box of VR Unicos from a recent 24:24:
  12. I like the Xikar 5 stick and 20 stick hard cases for serious travel, but have cheapo 2 and 3 stick leather cases for light travel (like heading to a casino). My two stick leather one is just leather, while the three stick is cedar lined, but since cigars never stay in them for more than a couple of days, I notice no difference in flavor. Sorry, no experience with the custom ones, as I just couldn't imagine spending much on a travel case (they're fun to look at, but I'm sure I'd just end up losing it).
  13. Those are painful to look at, hope you got your money back! (Kinda like looking at photos of a car wreck) Even with a refund, it's horrid to see some PEs lost to mold.
  14. any worthy whisky recommond

    Thanks for the recommendation, Ethernut! I picked up four bottles at Costco while in Lexington last week, and I'm glad I did, it's fantastic stuff. I also picked up a few bottles of Rittenhouse Rye, as that's my go-to for mixed Rye drinks (now that the Willet 7yr is impossible to find). I'll be sure to look you up on one of my future trips to Lex!
  15. So, what are your recent acquisitions?

    Picked up a couple of Ardbeg gift sets today (oh, and a Nectar D'or) and the store manager gave me a cool tin Ardbeg sign. I'll hang it up in my basement and see how long the wife lets it stay.
