  1. You guys are friggin AWESOME!!! We have one full day to ourselves in each city along with a day trip to Tuscany (for a chianti winery tour) and a day trip to Pompeii. The rest is tours. I was going to bring my cigar case for singles I bought there but sounds like I should bring it full of cigars. Clearly Italy isn't az cigar shopping mecca but I was hoping that I could get some hard to find ones shipped there from Geneva. No such luck. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  2. Oh Jen is ALL OVER the gelato! That girl has a serious sweet tooth Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  3. The wife and I are so excited to go to Italy next week! My first time out of the country and going after the #1 bucket list item, The Sistene Chapel! My attempts to get a layover in Geneva on the way there were thwarted by the wifey, unfortunately. She caught wind of the true purpose of the Geneva stop. I am aware of Fincato but it seems there are precious few good cigar stores in Florence and Rome. I even looked into getting some cigars delivered from Geneva and apparently the one looked at doesn't delver to Italy. ( I was soo pissed!!!) I am looking for recommendations for restaurants, cigar shops or just some general tips from our Travel-Seasoned members if you care to share.
  4. I try to go deep age-wise. One box of each for each year of production--IF I can afford it. Stocking up on Cohibas like this gets...expensive real fast. Figure a box of '14, '15 and '16 Espys would run you close to 2K.
  5. C'mon Mike...this is relative... to YOU!!! Hahaha! IIRC you have like 1200 cigars just in Partagas. When I die, I want to come back as your humidor. ::Bows Deeply::
  6. I have had two so far. Both with coffee and the same results with both. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  7. I was just amazed at how the coffee/cream cut the chocolate down. Without coffee, I don't get those Cohiba flavors coming through. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  8. Happy Easter Fockers!!! Sig II: A particularly delicious way to start Easter. Peace!!! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  9. Love me some Auchentoshan!!!! I still haven't had the three wood yet.
  10. Wow! Spiced cream, roasted peanuts, medium full (still) and hints of that "sweet leather" that I love in aged MDO#4's and Des Dieux. Awesome stick! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  11. Woo hoo Congrats!!!
  12. I really enjoy the Cohiba Maduros I have tried so far but they seemed to be a one-two punch type of cigar IMO. Huge blasts of chocolate but not very complex. I tried one out of a '16 box of Secretos from our host with a cup of coffee (cream and sugar) and noticed something odd: The coffee seemed to tame the chocolate a bit and I was getting hints of that Cohiba hay and honey coming through. It was slight but definitely there. I mainly stay away from the larger Cohiba Maduro sizes due to price and lack of complexity (IMO). I get the same chocolate blast out of the Secreto so why drop the extra coin if the flavors are so similar, but the coffee taming some of that chocolate might have me rethinking that plan. Has anybody else experienced this?
  13. I will be the outlier here and say that I would take a gently aged HU #2 over the Mag 56 for price and flavor. I get a lot of chocolate in the Mag 56 that I assume is from the wrapper because I get that same chocolate hit on the RACA. The RACA is a chocolate covered fruitcake and the Mag56 is a strong cafe mocha. I absolutely love that shortbread-coffee hit in a #2. You do get it in the Mag 56 but its a little subdued/covered by the chocolate. JMO of course.
  14. IJS= I'm Just Sayin. Geneva has some really good retailers and great prices but many do not deliver to the US. Zee and I chat frequently offline and I am pretty sure we know each other's shopping lists. Hahaha! Z is a great guy Smallclub hit it on the head with cigars you are most likely to see. If it were me, I would make sure I was thoroughly enjoying the rare opportunty (for Americans) perusing some supremely aged cigars that yoy can personally inspect.

  15. "O" something RAG. Wow! Probably one of the best final thirds I have ever experienced. Like a slice of Xmas cake dipped in milk coffee and cocoa sprinkles. ::Bows Deeply:: Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
