  1. Second try at these. I'm starting to think that I did not give the first one enough rest, this one was sooo muxh better. Will have another one in a week or two and try to put a review together. Happy weekend FoHs! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  2. Three boxes of the SLR España 2016 Teseros, a petit edmundo. All boxes look beautiful but one is especially dark. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  3. People have different opinions, clearly. I think Joe's place is worth a visit (there were a bunch of us up there to support an event just a couple of weeks ago), and while I don't share your view that it is one of the best lounges in the world I would not say anything negative about One Eyed Jacks. No doubt, they are completely different places but your view of ODC seems oddly unfavorable to me. I am not sure when you were there last but seeing as they've served alcohol in the new location since the move, you might want to drop by again.
  4. Light up made me sweat a bit.. This has a bunch (and I mean A BUNCH) of pepper still on it. Jeez. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  5. Sorry for just seeing this now. Next time you're here, shoot me a DM. Open Door Cigars is what you're looking for (free coffee and wifi, no problem smoking CCs). I work from there quite a few days a week and will be more than happy to get your first cigar of the day from my collection. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  6. Congrats! How is the Partagas Maduro? Had my finger on the trigger for a while.. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  7. Wine and cigar tasting, random Wednesday afternoon. Round 1: Conn A from 13 and a Raptor Ridge Temperanillo from the same year. Round 2: Partagas Short from 14 and a Palazzo Maffei Ripasso from 2013. Also, please note (on the second picture) that I am NOT drinking alone. [emoji3] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  8. Very nice. I got a box of NOV14 a couple of weeks ago and lit the first up yesterday. I fell in love, had a second one back-to-back and one today (plus 4-5 given away already). Enjoy the rest of that cab! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  9. First custom I ever smoked. Flipped a coin for which one, quite a contrast in color on the wrapper for something that came out with the same date and vitola. I have to say that I am very pleasantly surprised. Granted, I had no idea what to expect but it has shown to be a complex cigar. Banana (!) on the pre-draw, and the banana actually was there in the first third as a lingering taste on the palate. Earth dominates throughout and there is a hint of spice finally coming through at the end. Again, a pleasant surprise! (Oh, and took a couple of puffs on the darker one, spice bomb!)

  10. RyJ Churchill from 14 (maybe?). A bit spotty in flavors and quite muted but when it is there it is quite good. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  11. The tone in your posts isn't that friendly, I really don't see the point in hounding a member that is new to the boards with your personal opinions about taste or the importance of box codes. Neither of those were solicited in the original post. Taste is obviously a personal preference (if nothing else, your RASS MUR can serve as an example) and so is the importance of box codes. OP has a legitimate question (most likely with a perfectly fine answer).
  12. QdO Corona - OCT15. Can't believe this is the last of the box.. Oh well, I've enjoyed them and so have my friends. Love these things. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  13. Quick update. Picked out the heaviest, best-looking one of the cigars left in the box and lit it up yesterday. No soft spot when squeezing it but still had the same problems. No tunneling but wrapper wouldn't burn.. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  14. Giving these Diplomaticos one last try. Shosh is excited for the verdict. Because it wouldn't be ball she is focused on, right? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  15. Man, I just realized that what you were smoking must've been a robusto. I was talking about the Encantos as the best cigar of the year for me. Sorry about the confusion. Hope your next cigar has more to offer! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
