    ROM NOV 16 Monte 80 Anniversario. If I ever come across this box code again, I'll buy these by the master case.
  4. I really don't have a vested interest in any particular outcome. I'm not at any risk at all of winning anything. I'm 0-3 and I can't credibly claim that I was going to pick HUPC. Whatever works for those affected is fine by me.
  5. The box is en route to @MooseAMuffin!

  7. Box arrived today - two days early! Everything looks great. Just sorting out puts and takes with Colin, and hopefully it'll be back on the road on Monday.

  11. When I bought a couple of Padron Millennium back in '99, they were - at the time - the rarest and most expensive cigars I had, and that I could imagine ever having. So I decided that I would save them for only the most special occasions. Just such an occasion arrived on Wednesday when my wife and I welcomed our first child, our daughter, Millicent Jewell. So I'm enjoying my last quite evening at home while Mom and baby rest at the hospital, and taking the opportunity to dig into my humidor for the cigar that I've been saving for this day. After 19 years of being shuffled through countless humidors, the Millennium doesn't have much of a cold aroma - just faint black tea and mild dried flowers. An open draw gives early flavors that, to my palate, are characteristic of high quality, well-aged tobacco. Truffle, aged steak. There's a hint of baking spice in the aroma. It's certainly extremely rounded and mellow, but not at all dead or over-aged. The second third picks up some spice and a bit of the sweetness from the aroma hits the palate. It creates a mild kind of candied ginger flavor. The final third passes through a phase in which white pepper dominates for just a bit. Then the truffle flavor re-emerges and combined with a wet black tea and sugar note. This was a fantastic cigar, with distinct flavors that evolved over the course of the smoke, and a long oily finish. Certainly a fitting celebration of a joyous and life-changing occasion!

    Starting my morning with a La Escepcion Don Jose in Taichung. Fantastic cigar - dark chocolate, bitter espresso, and red chilli.

    OPM JUL 09 Punch Gran Robusto RE Espana at the P & L Club in Taipei. It may have cost 40 bucks, but it was an extremely good cigar - all chili pepper dark chocolate, almond paste, and umami.
