  1. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    And that's it for now. Last of my ALT MAR 13 HdM du Prince. Fortunately I do have a bunch of June 16s squirreled away [emoji16]

    Which he then gives to Ken who renders them into the beautifully detailed watercolours that are posted. Maybe...
  3. Newcomer (Newbie) Q&A

    I leave them in the tubos but crack the cap a little. Worth checking on them every few months. A little tighten up if you're taking them anywhere and you're good to go.
  4. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Party Short and a licorice espresso. Bloody lovely combo!
  5. I've found them to be a really good summer's day smoke actually!
  6. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Not as good as they used to be, I remember back in the day, ooh it's not the same now what with all those fancy big fat cigars, and they're probably made in Florida, from tea leaves, my friend had a HdM in 2009 that cured her impetigo you know. Sorry, venting. I really enjoyed this May 2016 Epi2 actually - so there!
  7. Love the Manianitas, got a friend muling some from Gibraltar in a few week's time.
  8. And mine aren't coming. Refund promised. Bah Humbu( r)g.
  9. Partagas Series D No.4 (ASR AGO 17) Beautiful, with a hint of what I believe we've all agreed, following heated discussion and laboratory analysis, is actual fairy dust.
  10. Beat-up 30 year old brass Zippo with a new jet flame insert (despite the fact that my wife got me a beautiful Xikar Turrim for Christmas).
  11. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    HdM du Prince TOR JUN 16 I've had four boxes of du Prince dated from mid-2013 to mid-2016 and they've all had these beautiful mottled wrappers. I don't recall seeing it as pronounced in anything else, but I do like it.
  12. Another vote here for a Cuban Davidoff. The 1000 and 2000 look like a great size for just regular, not special occasion, smoking. Some of the finest (in the sense of 'refined ') cigars I've had have been Davidoff - the Escurio Robusto and WC Churchill - and combining their undoubted finesse with Cuban tobacco would be quite something to experience.
  13. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    RyJ Belicoso ASO JUL 16 First one of these and I'm impressed. Great construction, light draw, very neat burn throughout, burnt wood, tea, no sweetness til the halfway point, milder than I expected.
  14. I've got a programme planning meeting for my Cub Scouts this week. Just need to find some legal weed in the UK. Hmm... [emoji848]
  15. hot chillies - can they hurt you?

    I love a good hot chilli pepper and keep a supply of tiny Thai chillies and home grown Scotch bonnets in the freezer for cooking. And a pot of Mr Vikki's Hell Hot Habenero sauce is always in the cupboard. But eating them raw for shits n giggles isn't clever. At work once someone brought in chillies reputed to be the hottest in the world at the time (there's always a newer hotter one out there) and handed them out. One guy ate one, started sweating and shaking and couldn't drive himself home an hour later. He didn't enjoy the next day either when it worked it's way through...
