  1. Figured I'd give a quick update. No Davidoff's or Dunhills has been smoked yet but for my birthday about a month ago I had the privilege to smoke a 1994 Ramon Allones 898. Jaw dropping to see how strong these cigars still are, can't even imagine what they were like fresh. Ramon DNA through and through and I loved it.
  2. Smoked a 1996 not that long ago, still has all the flavors you could wish for. Aged Opuses are hard to beat from a NC standpoint. That beautiful raisin/prune and cinnamon. Yummy yummy.
  3. Welcome, I am sure you'll like it here! If you're ever in NWA and need a smoking break, shoot a DM!
  4. Stuck in Brazil after flight delays. How Delta/GOL can turn an already long travel (28 hrs) to a never-ending trip (52 hrs and counting) is beyond me. The tranny prostitutes howled until 5 am outside of the shitty hotel room they put me up in. Even the local airline, despite being filled with smoke at landing (see below), made it on time. Worst thing is, I'm out of clean clothes and cigars (the clothes I can do without but..). Anyway, the last cigar of the trip was a very crusty Añejo. Old school band and very, very tasty (although almost too strong for my taste). Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  5. No doubt, I completely agree with you. "Shitty" waa a poor word choice on my part. Enjoyed a fantastic RASS from 2012 tonight with one of my favorite beers from here; CERPA Classic. The view is over Rio Tapajós. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  6. Itaituba in Pará (Brazil). Wifi, A/C, and cold beer so it could be much worse but I stick out like a sore thumb around here so.. I am happy that this gringo is flying out Monday. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  7. Back in "civilization" with a J-O SBMF from 2015. Shitty beer never tasted this good. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  8. Breaktime in the jungle and an opportunity to smoke a Monte #5 from early last year. Surprisingly dominated by floral notes. Maybe the heat and the humidity played a role but I liked it. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  9. Down in the middle of nowhere (or as my local colleague phrased it "one of the ends of the world") in the Amazon basin. After two days of traveling to get here I smoked a 2012 CoRo yesterday, and after sweating my balls of today I am enjoying a RASSC from 2013. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  10. Beer tasting from last week. The Evil Twin Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake was impressive. Very hit or miss from them but this was a hit. The Higher Math is always a winner, a lot less boozy then at release and now drinks perfect (and has for at least 6 months). Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  11. Yesterday's only smoke. First one I ever had. Unfortunately, it was very tight the first third and despite my greatest effort it wouldn't open up until the second third. At that point, it developed into a very interesting cigar: one moment tasting the classic chocolate, nutmeg and earth, just to turn around and hit you with something completely different. Spice also varied but not in a bad way, kept me on my toes. Overall slightly disappointed consider the price tag but partly made up for it after the halfway mark.

  12. Late night snack. Monte 5, June 2016. Aged more than I expected, worth the match. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  13. Smoking kills, people! Enjoying a Sancho ER Serbia on a windy day in the woods. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  14. Change of scenery, research meeting in the Colorado mountains for a week. Monte 5 from JUN16 after a long day of travel. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  15. I wish, hopefully in the next few years. This time it was Geophysical Research Letters, which is decent for an initial study. I'm near the start of my career so every publication matters. For Science or Nature, I'll probably need to find a Davidoff or Dunhill, eh? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
