  1. What's Your Aging Strategy?

    I have some strong feelings about this. I have 95 boxes, all untouched, all aging. Personal consumption: I do box splits and buy boxes to smoke through, rinse and repeat; I never have more than 2 boxes i'm smoking through though. This process is helping me educate myself on cigars I absolutely love and hate. The idea is that at some point I'm going to know what my favorites are and then I can start double or tripling down on those. Is this the best strategy? No. I know I should smoke one cigar every 6-12 months or so to see how the aging process is going.
  2. Cubans in Vietnam?

    Random, I'll be in Vietnam end of March as well. Hanoi, Hoi An and Danang. If you're traveling about let me know.
  3. I usually buy a box, split it with a friend and then rebuy the next box when I'm about 1/2 way through it. Doing this until my collection gains a bit of age on it.

    Blast from the past Ray. Thank you for writing this review. Proof of the value of good reviews. Was just shopping and came across a box of 2002's, did a quick search, came across your review and pulled the trigger. I'll let you know how they are. @PigFish
  6. San Sebastian and Cigars

    Sure! Pintxos are amazing, each bar seems to specialize in one or two things, definitely know what those are before walking in. Arzak was incredible, tonight we go to Martin Berasategui. Have visited both cigar shops, Cava Nava definitely has the selection. Found 2 interesting boxes, Montecristo D's from 2005 it seems, they may or may not have @El Presidente's TDWS (Thick, dark wrapper syndrome) haven't tried one yet though so we'll see. Also found a gem in the corner of the room, 10 sticks left from a box of Montecristo Especial's 1992. The wine and food have been fantastic though, definitely need to start eating salads when I get back. Thanks everyone for the advice!! @Ryan Logrono is tomorrow!!!

  8. San Sebastian and Cigars

    Wow everyone, it's responses like these that make me love this community. Wasn't really expecting a response. We landed last night and immedietely went for a bite. We are here in San Sebastian for 6 nights and then Logrono for 3 nights. Going to eat, drink and smoke myself into exhaustion. @Ryan Thanks for all the advice, we actually have dinner tonight at Arzak and on Wednesday we're heading to Baresategui, after that we leave for Logrono for 3 nights to do some wine tasting. Looking forward to finding some hidden gems in the wineries and the shops, thanks again everyone.
  9. Leaving for San Sebastian and the Rioja region tomorrow and have been trying to find some shops to visit or some good places to sit and smoke. Can anyone give me some guidance? Thank you in advance.
