  1. Best young CC

    This exactly. Will add the only Cohiba I like young (less than 3 years) is Siglo 2 and sometimes CCE although they both benefit greatly from aging. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. As others have said it really depends on how the cigar is behaving. Probably about 50% of the time I smoke to the end. Smoke a lot of PCs so if I feel like I don’t want to smoke anymore after half the cigar I’ll chuck it. Not too long ago I smoked a SCDLH El Principe and it was terrible. Smoked 1/3, and went and got another and it was terrible, smoked another 1/3 and it was terrible. Went and grabbed a Siglo 2. It was delicious. Have had many good El Principe from that box those 2 just were awful at the time. I was much more pleased with this situation than the equally priced (of all 3) CORO I punished myself all the way through last week. Still grouchy about it.
  3. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    2015 Famosos on my neighbors heated porch (he was smoking a Monte DE). Truly a marvelous cigar. My favorite Robusto lately.
  4. Well it’s funny you mention this. I just had a pipe made for me by a renowned pipe-maker. He kindly sent a picture of the raw material, and a rough sketch on the briar block; I appreciated it greatly, but had some concerns initially...

  6. Your February 2018 cigar Awards

    As@topdiesel said the uglier the better. I don’t think Sancho Panza is any more inconsistent than any other marque. Occasionally I’ll run across a bad one, but at around half the price of Cohiba it doesn’t bother me near as much. Dive in is my advice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Did I miss review of Topes? I kept waiting for it and thought maybe I just missed it somehow? If not this would be my recommendation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Your February 2018 cigar Awards

    Best—2013 Sancho Panza Non Plus-was a salty stunner in what’s been a box of really good cigars. Worst—2015 CORO Tubos smoked a few days ago. Middle was passable, but paying the premium the whole damn thing should be awesome. It makes me very grouchy to get bad Cohiba. And no age wasn’t going to help this dog rocket. Harsh, bitter, tarry, burned horribly. Really hope it was an anomaly. Here’s the **** in all its glory... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fantastic! Happy for you Chris! Nothing at all like being a father—enjoy! Z Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Newcomer (Newbie) Q&A

    I’ll take a swing at this one. First off—no one can tell you exactly what rH Is best for you. Through experimenting with different levels you’ll find the best option for you. My opinion on seasoning (and what I’ve done) is to take it to about what you’re going to want the humidor to stay around. Say 65 for this example. Put in your Bovedas (if this is your preferred humidity control method) and make sure you have 4-5 days of stability. Stable is what you want. If you see the hygrometer(s) (make sure they’re calibrated, and move them around) reading lower than you want go back to seasoning again. Also realize when you put in cigars and boxes they will affect the humidity some as well. You may see a drop or an increase initially, but it will stabilize. As long as you’re confident the environment is pretty stable you’re good to go. Please realize the limitation of the medium you’re using too. Bovedas will have some level of error and this is to be expected. I ran down the rabbit hole of precision control (with generous help from@pigfish) and now have my main humidor stable between 61.8-62.2 constantly. The problem I have now is how much the system runs to maintain this precision in an imperfect “wood box”. This is why I will be switching it all over into a large wine cooler here in a few months. Just my 2 cents. Hope this helps! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Hickory...interesting...I looked at my notes from a BCE I smoked a few months back...hmmmm....I think you nailed it!! “Final--much of same as second 3rd but that's not a problem really at all because the flavors are delicious. Still a fair amount of cedar/oak (who can really tell the difference--cedar has an awful taste. Very very bitter.). It's the smell of cedar or maybe oak, it's freshly cut wood which translates to the palate, not the taste of wood. I can’t quite put my finger on it...and I cannot believe they discontinued this cigar.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. MSU is allegedly Partagas Factory code and have heard from a couple people the best factory for Talisman so far. No personal experience because I’m not paying the premium. I will have pair of them through the generosity of a good friend. One to smoke in a few months and one to hang on to. Hope everyone enjoys them though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. These are great picks I think. Cabaiguan Guapos always seem eerily close to me. Illusione makes some real winners. La Colemena like Mike said above. And I totally agree with the Dominican Assessment. Just can’t like them except for the occasional Anejo, which even then is iffy. I think Padrón makes a cigar which is more reminiscent (but not perfect) of the way some of the older Cubans smoked when they were fresh. Aged Padrón’s are very very good cigars. Just because I choose Cubans I do still believe there’s some excellent cigars coming out of Nicaragua. Don Pepin Garcia and family know how to blend tobacco. Also, I smoked a Rocky Patel Edge Corojo with about 5-6 years of age on it recently and I was completely surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Was meant as a yard gar and it surprised me so much I smoked the whole thing and enjoyed it quite a bit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
