  2. Hard to find cigars

    Ken nailed it. I would add I have been let down by some of the biggest hyped cigars I've smoked. It's probably the build up more than anything. I am more amazed at some of my own stock I have had for many years and how they've become awesome. I had some 02 Punch Ninfas from a 50 Cab I split with a friend in mid 2000s which completely blew away anything I have had in recent memory. They're gone now and although I wish I had 200 more I do not regret smoking them one bit. Buy them, smoke them, enjoy them, talk about them, brag about them, remember them, form an opinion, compare them, write us all up a review, embrace the experience. Enjoy the journey.

  3. Haha! @sloppyj It wasn't intended to come out as you being the surprise ruiner. Just wanted to share my experience with the surprise it was to me to open a box I thought had pass sticks in it to find an entire aged box of ERDM. A shock for sure--a most legendary add to the pass!

  4. Very awesome gesture indeed! I almost mentioned it when I re packaged the box but decided to just keep it a secret. @tave1225 I was shocked to open up a dress box I thought contained more pass sticks and saw a full box of ERDM. Great job. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. PSP 2008 10 box of Monte 2 signed by the man himself El Prez. (thanks@ethernut) Seen some dark Dip2s but these TOS NOV15 are incredible. And these 2000 RS11 are just gorgeous (my profile pic) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. HOW did this happen!.....Tell Jen to guard the mail box Timmah! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. 1.) Siglo 2 2.) BPC 3.) RGPC 3b.) SP Non Plus from 2013--really an excellent cigar. Has to be hanging on by a thread over the HSA discontinuation pit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. This is a bit different review but I wanted to put some thoughts down on some areas outside of just flavors. When I watch certain reviews and people talk about maybe 20 flavors I lose interest fast. I am sure there are people with a palate refined enough to detect the transition between white pepper, black pepper and cayenne pepper but I am most assuredly not one of those people. Bolivar Tubos 1 ULA JUN15 Pre light--sweet tobacco and wood (cedary, it would seem) very nice Punch cut--12:02 AM Trying to be cognizant of slowing way way down with Bolivar. To me they swing wildly between rough and harsh and sweet earthy and satisfying if you smoke very very slowly. Partagas factory cigars always seem to have 2 interesting characteristics to me--1.) such a great volume of smoke. Even after sitting for 2-3 solid minutes it will give up a lot with even a slight pull. 2.) The smell of the oils from the cigar on your hands has a distinctly funky smell. I have heard others mention this as well--I wonder why this is? To me these are probably as close as it gets to the Coronas Extra...and so they're discontinued as well. Tragedy. Flavors now are coffee with a touch of cream and sugar. Good fungal earthiness is there too. I wonder if saltiness in a retrohale is sometimes what people refer to twang? Could also be interpreted as citrus maybe as well. Not really a taste particularly but more of a feeling. A full roundness or a fizziness almost. This is present. Ash falls on me at 12:23..figured it would hold on a little longer possibly. On a very long deep draw there's pepper in the nose and it's got some bite. It's interesting to me the longer draw you take the way the flavors can change. Even if it's a long slow draw. The volume of smoke makes a difference. With the saltiness and a pepper burn in the nose it almost reminds me of salt water. Not in a bad way though. Earthy, bit of cream..coffee moving more to the espresso side of things. There's a fleeting flavor there which reminds me of whiskey. I think it has to be an Oaky flavor. Hard to pin it down. Stays there pretty much the entire middle third. Maybe picks up a little more bitterness. Needs more time for sure. Still youthful but very promising. Citrus is there--a kind of bitter citrus. Last third some distinct leather and some mongrel coming on. Still has touch of cream and the oaky quality. Maybe it's cedar. Maybe it's English Black Walnut (saw it in an FOH review by Smitty and Alain I believe..). I don't know I just haven't tasted enough wood to make a fair assessment. It's good though. Medium Full to Full. The first 2/3 of this cigar would suit anyone just fine, the last 3rd is where things become more intense. It's a concentration of flavors already there. Once this final third smooths out just a bit these will be absolute stunners. Going to put it out a little early. The mongrely tannic element is sneaking in just a little too much for me. Want to end on a good note. Will probably try these again in a year and see how they're doing. Excellent cigar though. 90 pointer all day long. Very enjoyable. With some age I could see them improving to very high scores. What a shame they're discontinued. What a crying shame. Put out at 1:18 AM, could've smoked another 20 minutes likely. Smoke Bolivar slow. Smoke all cigars slow. My biggest piece of advice to everyone. Store them dry and smoke them slow. Makes all the difference in the world. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Little large for my preference as well, but I will give it a go. I like the Connie A and the Mag54 quite a lot so I am guessing I'll like these as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I've heard rumors the codes were changed in June..reliable rumors but rumors nonetheless. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Anyone use a Tupperdor?

    I have 2 Tuppers which I have a fair amount of overflow stock in. I picked up a Wine Cooler dirt cheap and took one of the shelves and drawers out of it to stash in the tuppers. With random collected Bovedas and some engineered desiccant it holds at a steady 63-64% and 68-70 dF in my basement. I am sure my ambient is likely controlling it more than I care to admit, but it does the job to my liking. However, I am headed down the controlled climate rabbit hole with Pigfish supplied equipment on my main humidor (wood box) so I have a feeling my tolerance is about to change.

  12. Cigar--Very very broad range--I am not proud to say curiosity got the best of me the other day and I bought a 5 cigars for $1 pack--terrible..but worth $1 to see if a likely lifetime supply would be worth it instead of a 50 Cab of Lusis..see recent purchases thread... Music--Always listening to old hip hop/rap, Social D and Nirvana. When I take my kids to school we listen to some awful rap or Taylor Swift mostly it seems. Reading--Simon Sinek for business, and re-reading Harry Potter for the 10th time. TV--NFL and College Football, and whatever my family watches which usually seems to be The Walking Dead Beverage--I don't drink but I've taken a liking to drinking a very very tiny amount of good Rum with cigars. Mostly Tea, Coke, and water. Hobby--Golf and Cars Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I really wish more cigars were available in 50 Cabs. Oh so awesome. Nothing compares..
  14. Topes is too expensive and strong right now and Medio Siglo is way way overpriced. I've smoked a few of each and there's no way I would choose the Topes over the RYJ Capuletos and I would take the Upmann Mag 54 over the Medio Siglo at nearly a 2-1 price tag. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Connie 1 vs Connie A

    Not even close IMO. Connie A and Winnie are on a different level than Connie 1 to me. I could smoke Connie As forever and likely be happy. Like Prez sez--it's at the top of most people's top 10 reg production list and I am no exception. I am a bit sad I don't have more of them right now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
