  1. Not the budget rum thread, but definitely enjoy this one for its price range, as I know a few other members do as well.
  2. RIP Jose O. Padron

    An incredible life and story. RIP Jose Padron and condolences to the family. My first real cigar experience was a Padron 2000 natural - I'll never forget that first wonderful smoke and how it got all of this started! It's been about 8 years, and what a ride it's been.
  3. Sadly, I agree with this. Some of my most aromatic boxes upon arrival are not nearly as pungent now after acclimatization to my 62%/62 storage conditions.
  4. H. Upmann Majestic vs. Regalias

    Reviving this thread as I'm curious how current production is smoking for both of these sticks. I'm always a bit perplexed when I stumble upon mention of these, as I honestly forget about them with the HU PC getting most the attention in the realm of skinny Upmanns (at least recently for good reason). A few observations/musings after looking around the site: 1. It appears maybe these sticks have had more consistency issues when compared to the PC, at least per some members assessment, which I suppose could be due to them being made at a slew of different factories, where the production of PC was more focused to just a couple. 2. The price of the Regalias/Majestics (and Coronas major tubo) is friendly in comparison to the PC, and maybe they've been relegated to the "cheap and cheerful" realm, but I'm wondering if the quality and profile is really that far off from the PC, or whether these are underdogs that get overlooked since they are more budget friendly and previously machine made?
  5. Second Half 2017 Box Codes.

    Not certain, but it may be the Francisco Donatién Factory in Pinar Del Rio. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Second Half 2017 Box Codes.

    Based on my observations, for what it's worth: H. Upmann: MEG -> BRE in June 2017 (based on HU no. 2 and VR Unico production switching around that time, as these pyramids have predominately been made there recently) La Corona: TOS -> LGR in June 2017 (based on Cuaba and PL Montecarlos codes seen since June 2017) Partagas: ETP -> MSU in June 2017 (based on Bolivar Libertador, RA Superiores, most Partagas P2 and E2 going that direction) El Laguito: AMO -> UAO somewhere around July 2017 (based on some new Esplendido, CoLa, Talisman)

  8. Absolute stunner box of Monte 1 picked by Rob. Couldn’t be happier!
  9. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    On leaf (leaves?) duty tonight. About 17 feet of leaf accumulation in our driveway from one Japanese maple. Mind boggling. I paired the raking with a cigar that tastes a bit like a damp forest floor in Autumn... (MEG MAY 16 Connie 1). Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  10. Yep, coloniales from a sale a few weeks back. The wrapper shade/sheen is just right for me. How does the box look that you picked up?
  11. Nice ARS! Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. I believe there were some reports of Talisman from the release event with a UAO code as well, which would likely support it being El Laguito.
  13. I thought this was going to be another box of Trini when I saw the title.
