  1. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Not at all! I liked it quite a bit. The profile reminded me a little of the Upmann Mag50 - a kind of nutty stone fruit flavor. It turned a little sharp in the final third, but I think that's because it was ROTT. I expect that after they acclimate, that nice profile will show some nice depth and richness. I'm not sure it's the best cigar you can get for $20, but I'm glad I picked up a box.
  2. Partagas 170?

    Who just handed you a couple of Parti 170s? I need friends like that!
  3. MLB Season 2017

    MLB must be loving this ... the four remaining teams play in the four largest markets in the US. No matter who wins the games, the real winner will be Fox Sports.
  4. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    ROL SEP 13 FdC Grandioso ROTT. They smelled so good I couldn't wait. Hanging out at Cigar and Lounge in Watertown, MA. Great place - nice homey, neighborhood vibe. If anyone is ever in the Boston area and wants a place to hang out, have a smoke, and do some work, this is it.
  5. I can't speak to the Petits, but I was tempted into buying a PRA NOV 11 box of Monte 4s, because ... well, aged Montes! Why not? They were OK. Not great. When I see aged boxes of very, very high production sticks (Monte 4, PSD4, etc.) I generally assume that they've just sat around because they're lackluster boxes. If I were in the market for Monte 4s now, I would take @Philc2001s advice and just look for high quality recent production.
  6. ROL SEP 13 La Flor de Cano Grandioso RE Asia Pacific. They look - and more importantly, smell - amazing. Can't wait to see how they'll smoke after a couple months of acclimation.

    Davidoff Puro d'Oro Gigantes. Better than the Yamasa by country mile.
  8. Pick up a Last Tsar if you have the chance. Really nice smokes IMO.
  9. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    MUL JUN 15 Lusi. One my nominees for cigar of the year. And this one does not disappoint.
  10. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Another NC I've seen posted here a few times. Solid performance, nice aroma, but not much more to it than that.
  11. 1) ROM ENE 16 HUSW. I know it's a crime to smoke these young, but I just couldn't help cracking the box. "Establishing a baseline" is how I justify it They've been stunning. 2) MUL JUL 15 Parti Lusi. For my money, the absolute epitome of what a Cuban cigar should be.

    What happened to Schwarber? I thought he had bounced back after his demotion to Iowa.
  13. BBF Going Out Problems

    I'm sure there are hundreds of different opinions here on dry boxing, but for me, I wouldn't consider it dry boxing to put 9 well-humidified sticks in a box with a humidification device - even a 58%. My view of dry boxing is that it should allow the cigar to really release some moisture into an enclosed, non-humidified container. I would expect there to be a little too much ambient humidity in that box, between the Boveda and the other sticks. FWIW, I dry box one or two cigars at a time in cedar travel humidor, with no humidification device at all. Just my two cents.
  14. Are you accusing El Pres of posting a link that was planted by the Russian FSB? That would seem to suggest very poor judgement.
