  1. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Tatuaje Black Label Gran Toro one for the books. Great suggestion for an NC from our brethren here! Lots of cream and spice, "strong Hoyo" comes to mind.
  2. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    All pancake and syrup in this one
  3. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    How was this? I have a ULE JUN 15 that's already a great box
  4. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Ramon Allones Club Allones LAU DIC 15 Cocoa, stewed fruit, hint of vanilla and slight spice. Powerful smoke. Lovely night.
  5. I picked up Lot 40 Rye and Angel's Envy (bourbon as rye was sold out). Both were amazingly smooth with just a touch of spice that intrigues the palate yet lets a great cigar shine through. Different experience definitely from Scotch and welcome one at that. Paired these with a ULA JUN 15 Bolivar Tubos No. 1 from our host right of the truck... WOW Personally the Angel's Envy was a match made in heaven (no pun intended). Will have to leave a review this week. Thank you for all of the suggestions!
  6. Phil, Congratulaions! Sounds like it was an awesome trip. Came across this as I am plan a trip to Chiang Mai and Bangkok this year. Did you end up finding a few cigar friendly spots? What were your experiences? Thsnk you brother. Nate
  7. I see a lot of whiskey, scotch and bourbon paired with cigars... anyone here enjoy a good rye with their smoke? I figure that mongrel pairs great with mongrel as well. What are your experiences? Any suggestions?
  8. @El Presidente Hmmmm we'll leave that assessment for the last drink! Have a great weekend
  9. Congrats @seattledude! I'm happy you made it happen, very well deserved. Might as well keep going now
  10. Hey guys, I recently tried an Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 1 from our host, and it was easily one of the top CC's I've had so far. I've been on the lookout for these in 24:24 (missed them today), but I did score some EE last week. I'm wondering how they compare, besides being different vitolas, in flavor and creaminess, which is better young or aged, etc. EE's are supposed to be the top of the line Epicure, but maybe the smaller vitola gives the No. 1 an edge in smoking experience. Thoughts?

    Not impossible at all; I actually find it way easier than bulking and cutting because it's flexible with my lifestyle. I'm not trying to lose weight, just fat. I've dropped about 4-5% body fat in the past six months, and weigh about the same as when I started (208 lbs @ 6'2"). Unless I'm losing bone density, I'm making gains . You just have to be consistent at the gym, consume the correct amounts of carbs fats and proteins, and as you say, lift heavy.

    Oh man that is aggressive! I'm also 6.2 so I feel your pain I do weight training with HIIT so I have to eat more - I'm trying to transfer fat ---> muscle. It's not fast but it's working.

    You can always leave out the potato and eat more Tri-tip, sounds delicious to me I consume 222 grams of carbs per day, 50 grams of fat and 165 grams of protein that all add up to 2,000 calories. As long as I stick to those amounts and hit the gym consistently, I eat just about anything I want and am still losing fat. You can find info on this searching for "Flexible Dieting IIFYM"; it also works if you want a low-carb diet just shift the ratio to more fat and less carbs. Here's my favorite snack:

    The Imperiosa Magicos from Crowned Heads is a treat. A chocolate bar to me. Very concentrated in flavor and creaminess. The Jericho Hill is great if you like the San Andreas wrapper, but is known to have spice/pepper. The Headley Grange is probably the most complex and balanced of the lot. It veers more towards caramel, hay and cream. There are crowned heads samplers with these out there if you want to get your feet wet.
