  1. I’ve had this conversation quite a bit but in the dog vs dog context. It ultimately boils down to what your definition of “intelligence” is. My wife and I have 3 dogs, 2 standard poodles (higher end of canine intelligence spectrum) and 1 English bulldog (right at the bottom of the intelligence spectrum). My definition of intelligence for a dog is simple: do you listen to me, do you make my life easier (or harder) and how much can I trust you. Bulldog: walks off leash, knows basic commands, when I leave the house I know he’s not going to destroy anything (or move) and if I leave him in the yard he will stay in the yard. The poodles are pretty much the opposite. If they don’t have enough stimulation, they’ll make their own. Kind of like a toddler with too much sugar. I love them all, but case and point: It took about 50 tries to get this picture. In 49 of them bulldog looks exactly the same. The same can’t be said about the other two. I don’t get a lot of say in our Xmas card design. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Some recent 24:24 acquisitions: I was lucky enough to snag 2 boxes of the May 14 Monte 4s. They look and smell incredible. I also scored 2 boxes of clearance D4s. One will be for my family’s annual trip to Panama- between my dad and brothers we usually go through a box worth so a $180 box of D4s was a no-brainer. They aren’t the prettiest but should do the trick. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. from the washington post...

    Pay him. Full stop. End of story. He may never be great, but he is someone you can build a team around. I think he will continue to get better, and the longer we wait the more expensive (or devastating) his contract (or leaving) will be. The skins have never been afraid to spend the $$ in the past, and with Cousins under center we are a lot closer to becoming a competitive than we are without him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Second this. I was very impressed with my TES SEP 15 box of D4s. Also bought blind. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. The guy running the shop I visited explained how the tax structure on cigars works and it seems like the government is trying to tax them out of business. Also it is illegal to have tobacco on display. So I couldn’t even go into the humidor. He gave me a price list, I told him what I wanted (08 SLE Serie A) and then he went back and got them.

  7. I’m spending this Thanksgiving on foreign soil in New Zealand. My wife and I have been enjoying all of the amazing seafood available on this side of the world instead of turkey today. I’ve had several varieties of Pacific Oysters, some of the best sashimi I can remember trying and a Blue Moki dish that was phenomenal as well. And then there was this guy After the feast my wife wanted to check out a botanical garden. I was a good sport and did the nickel tour before camping out by a cafe. For being relatively young this HUPC was very smooth. The graham cracker/shortbread flavor lasted through the majority of the stick. Altogether I got 65 min of smoking time out of it. I also made a few friends, as people were pretty intrigued about the cigar (a HUPC costs almost 40$ for a single here) and not too many people smoke them casually. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. HU MAG 50 has always been a winner for me. If you keep your ear to the ground they can be found for about 10$ a stick. While that’s not exactly cheap, I think they punch well above their weight. They are very approachable young and seem to improve exponentially with age. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I have this setup. When I bought it, I told my wife that she could use one half for her wine, and I’d keep cigars in the other half. I think we both knew that this was how it was going to end up. That being said, it works well enough for me. It keeps pretty stable temp/rh. It’s built well and the shelving is good quality.

  11. Managed to track down a bucket list smoke. SLR Serie A. I’m visiting Auckland NZ with the wife, and stepped into a cigar shop. (The restrictions and taxes on cigars in New Zealand really makes me appreciate how good we have it) Glass half full, the high prices mean the selection is very good. They had a full box of NOV 08’s but I wasn’t ready to drop north of 1k on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Managed to get 100 sticks in the house undetected. No matter how many HUPC’s I manage to stash away, it never seems like enough. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Couple of good looking bulldogs on here. Here’s Reggie, keeping myself and a Monte PE company. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My top 2 are: RACA GOA SEP 15 and Monte PE SOM ENE 16. These were not only my best individual smokes this year, but also my most consistent. After my first RACA, I went deep on them and hopefully I’ll have a box or 2 left over in a few years to see how they develop. The PE was just one of those fantastic smokes that checked all the boxes for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Decided to try this OCT 16 Dantes purchased from 24:24 at the one year mark. The first inch was a little rough around the edges, honestly reminded me more of a NC than anything. After that however it's been all cocoa, cream and baking spice. Construction and draw is near perfect. Looking forward to seeing how these develop in the coming months/years.
