  1. Who here vapes?

    I vape daily, but I don't do it around many people. I started vaping to quit dipping snuff (Copenhagen, Skoal) several years ago and stuck with it because it's hopefully less harmful. I do it for the nicotine, not for ritual or for pleasure. When I'm stressed, I use it. When I'm not, I don't. I use the most basic bland juice I can find and have never tried a fruity or tobacco flavored juice that I liked. I'm gearing up to throw the thing in the trash and not look back, but haven't done it yet. I don't like the idea of needing a crutch. My (almost) daily cigar, if only a small Cohiba Short or Partagas Chicos, is my ritual and pleasure. It's a completely different experience for me than vaping. I usually smoke late at night, the last thing before bed, sort of a happy ending to a hopefully good day. The vape gets left behind and the humidor gets cracked open. Now THAT'S the good stuff.
  2. Buying Blind

    I've had pretty good luck lately on blind buys from other vendors (knock on wood), but I go into it knowing the risk. I tend to buy my short term smoking stock, especially smaller vitolas that cost less, at other places and then use 24:24 and Cuntint for the "real" stuff. I bought a box of RyJ Short Churchills last year from another vendor and they were absolute garbage, but remarks on this site have mentioned that this cigar in particular has been pretty disappointing in the main for some time. There are no rosado wrappers and cherry nuances in that box, I assure you. Its good to have options, and even better to have a gold standard available here on this site for the "real" stock.
  3. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Partagas Chicos aren't half bad. They're a quick smoke, they're cheap and cheerful, and they're in the same league as Cohiba Shorts, IMHO. For two bucks and change, I'm game.
  4. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Just dug into a new 10 count box of 2016 Punch Punch Tubos. Off to a good start here.
  5. After reading that, I'm quite relieved that my own personal online dating horror stories pale in comparison to this one! And this is coming from a guy who met his lovely wife on Tinder several years ago. I hit the jackpot and cashed out, but can still appreciate the struggles of my fellow man!
  6. McGregor vs Mayweather

    I'm pulling for McGregor but I don't see it happening. Hope I'm wrong.

    Partagas Chicos tonight. Been smoking more of these and the Cohiba Shorts lately. Would much rather light up my usual minuto or mareva, but these are good when I'm short on time. 20-30 minutes of time on the back deck after a long day, at a price point of two dollars and change.
  8. I just got back home to Atlanta after a round trip drive to Hiawassee (north GA) for a full totality view. Absolutely awesome experience. Was worth taking the day off from work for this. Time now for a good cigar and some reflections from the back deck.
  9. Let\'s talk about watches:

    My 2016 Explorer. 39mm is small by today's standards, but the proportions seem classic to me. And this piece flies beneath the radar, which I like.

    2015 BRC to kickstart the weekend.
  11. H. upmann, which one?

    If you like the Petit Corona size, might want to get the HUPCs before they're gone!
  12. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Fresh 2016 HUHC. I'm about halfway through my first-ever box of these and despite their "odd" size, I'm impressed. I've been reaching for these over my old fave minutos (Principe, RASCC, BCJ) lately during times when I'm looking for a quick smoke.
  13. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    JUN 2015 CoRo. Wonky burn is my fault. Wrapper split while in my travel humi. Trying to salvage a good stick.
  14. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Having a CoSho on the beaches of Maui tonight. Hoping for the chance to light up a CoRo or HUPC after our dinner reservation later. Life is good, gents!
  15. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    This 2015 RASS is the best cigar I've had in a month. A real "cracker"!
