  1. Yes for sure my friend. The darker wrapper is more cocoa and the lighter shade is more to the floral side to my tastes. I still think a darker wrapper RGPC with a few years on it reminds me of Vanilla Coke. I had a box of them from 2014 (think I only have a few singles left) and nearly every one had a syrupy, vanilla, slight chocolate, fizzy thing going on. Just a tasty and unique experience.

  2. Couple recent acquisitions...the network of friends I've made the last couple years here have allowed me to get some boxes I never thought I would be able to get. Very appreciative! TEB FEB08 BRC--gorgeous! A little lighter wrapper shade with very thin wrappers--just about perfect. and OPM FEB09 Diplomaticos 4--can't tell you how happy I am to add a full box of these to the humidor.

  3. Fly everyone I know here in the US and every member on here I have talked with to Havana for 3 days of cigar and rum grabbing ($5,000 CUC each), then we would all hop a private jet or 3 to fly down to rent the entire Four Seasons in Bora Bora and smoke cigars and drink rum drinks for 10 days and then come home. As a remembrance of the "Legendary Excursion" we would all get a parting gift package containing a smoking jacket, a red Fez, a 50 Cab of Winnie's, (bet they'd make them!), and a few surprises. The financials looks like this. 500 people at $1000 flight to Havana--$500,000... Housing and food for 500 in Havana--$500,000 500 people at $5,000 each Rum and Cigar money--$2,500,000 Renting the entire Four Seasons Bora Bora for 10 days--$3,000,000. Another $5,000 per person there on food, excursions etc--$2,500,000 3 chartered jets to Bora Bora--$2,100,000 Parting gifts--$1,000,000 Flying everyone home--$900,000 Total cost-$13 million.... Would then invest the other $37 million and be ok forever.. It sure is fun to dream! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Mold Update Round 2

    This is awesome stuff. Thank you for the undertaking. I think this is revolutionary work. I sure would be curious what the "experts" have to say about these findings.
  5. Excited to get a win finally! Thanks Czar crew. I really would like to keep this thread going. I just love seeing great boxes of cigars! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. My vote is for the RGPC hands down. However I have an honarable mention--I am really getting a lot of bang for the buck out of Lusitanias here lately. They're consistent, the construction is always great, and they last nearly 3 hours for me. I officially love Lusi. If I could figure out a way to smoke for an hour and put it out and come back and smoke another hour and then another (without it tasting bad), they would easily be the best bang for buck cigar.
  7. My Grand Father was a WW2 Veteran. He was in Pattons 3rd Army and fought in the Battle of the Bulge. He won a Bronze Star for laying communication lines under heavy fire and a Purple Heart for what he always called "just a little illness." I am certain it was much more. As someone above said, he only spoke of the nice people in France and in the Hospitals--never of the atrocities of war. He and my Grandmother eptitomized The Greatest Generation. They lived meagerly on a farm making $6 a week during The Depression, he worked in the Redwood Forest in the CCC, and they opened a small grocery store with some of the money he received from serving. They saved, they took pictures of their Social Security checks, and loved their country. When my Grandmother passed away 3 years ago we found so many amazing things. One of the most amazing was a ledger from a "credit account" from the store. It showed around 50 people who owed them money and had never paid their "bill". I'm sure my Grandfather and Grandmother never attempted to collect those debts. They were loved by the community and well over 500 people showed up for both of their funerals.
  8. I've been digging around trying to find the size for an Aromosos vitola de galera as in the Rio Seco. It seems to have only existed (even in Hoyo De Monterrey) pre revolution--so there's not much info on the size. If anyone has any additional insight I would like to hear it. The 46 and 56 ring gauge difference is confusing. I am guessing if it's a pre revolution size brought back it has to be a 46 RG. Here's to hoping the 56 is a typo. Edit: Although it's hard for me to believe they would make a cigar only 3mm less than an Epicure 1...so I will temper my expectations.
  9. Interesting to note apparently the Cohiba 50th Anniversary humidor monstrosities were allegedly wrapped in cellophane sleeves.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It's shocking to see sales numbers on flavored cigars. Drew Estate (swisher now I guess) making a ton of money off infused still. I was at a cigar event a couple years back and they were throwing Kuba Kuba and Blondies into the crowd and people were smoking them up. And apparently the Tabak Especial is a perennial top seller in cigar shops. I don't care for them but I see how people could like them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Happy Halloween

    I was able to smoke one because of your extreme generosity--Thank you! I forgot to snap a pic unfortunately but it was a really nice cigar. Surprisingly, not as peppery as most Tats I've had. A winner for sure. First NC I've smoked in maybe 6 months. Excellent. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Glad you enjoyed it! First full box of Secretos I picked up and some of them have been surprisingly full bodied toward the end. Almost reminiscent of some of the great cigars of the past. Nice review! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Trick or Treat night at my place and I always hand out candy with a cigar in my face! 2014 Mag50 was surprisingly powerful through the first half but settled in the last half until it burned my fingers. First half reminded me of a Padrón, second half was Cuban delicious. Strange. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. It is a crying shame "agree to disagree" is dead. It is a huge problem, huge. I must be getting old; cannot comprehend someone getting bent out of shape over the opinions of others on a forum where they hardly know each other. Kudos to Rob and Ray above for drawing some sense into this discussion and verbalizing what I wanted to say better than I could. As a side note I just want to say@nino is a true legend and an asset to us all here. Lots of curious people wondering about a somewhat cryptic interview and Nino just makes a call and gets some clarification. Thank you for this Nino. Your legendary status was elevated even more today sir. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Exactly! This is a perfect description of the smell! I suppose this is another one of those strange ones like "Old Lady's Handbag" Ken uses! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
