    Congratulations @spivey6690! It's no small feat.
  2. My favorite cigar shop in the Windy City. It's always homier than other fine establishments in Chicago.
  3. Partagas Serie D # 6.....Success or Failure

    I agree that it's a very good cigar. I've gotten them in Spain for €7 a stick which isn't bad, but pricing is certainly not it's strong suit.
  4. Blind Tasting Results for Cigar Number Four

    Congratulations to those who got this!! This was certainly one of the most disappointing Siglo IV I've smoked and I wish I could chalk my example to just youth. Oddly enough, my example was distinctly box pressed.
  5. Writing Longhand and the love of pens

    I really like the way an Omas fountain pen writes
  6. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Afternoon reading with an HdM Epicure de Luxe
  7. Current VR Don Alejandro?

    Is the box code OMR JUN 15 by any chance? I have that but haven't tried any yet
  8. Libano Regionals

    I'm not a regional chaser either, but I've been trying to get my hands on one to try. I've heard nothing but good things about the Libanos. I've always wanted to visit Beirut, partly because of cigars.
  9. Eid Mubarak to one and all!

    Eid Mubarak to you as well, brother!
  10. Cohiba Pricing

    I was there in November and it's pretty tapped out. The only find I had was the last box of SLR Londsdales for €135, if memory serves me correctly. It's worth a trip if you're chasing regionals, which wasn't the purpose of my trip. The Cohiba boxes were 16 box codes. To make matters worse, you can only legally bring back 3 boxes into Spain/France per person.
  11. Box code help

    Congrats on the find! Hopefully they smoke much better considering the different wrapper leaf varietal that was in use then.
  12. Box code help

    If the top code looks like HM, then it's Heroes de Moncada (Jose Piedra) factory.
  13. Box code help

    If it's BM, then yes it's the the RyJ factory, indeed. Is the factory code on the top one MM?
  14. Box code help

    I believe the top one is 11/97 and the bottom one is 06/97. I can't make it the first two letters for the factory codes in either picture. This is based on the "N I V E L A C U S O" date code that ran from 1985 - 1998.
