  1. Great chat, Rob and crew. Love hearing how things are going around the world. The La Flor De Cano Casanova ended up with pepper (mostly black), some leather and a dark chocolate/nuts mixture that came after the first few minutes. Pretty enjoyable stick, albeit not worth what the secondary market is costing nowadays.
  2. greatest NFL team of last 30 years

    A great team but my guess would have been the 1989 49ers....they dominated the playoffs (126-26 outscoring of opponents), were undefeated on the road and went 14-2 on the season, those 2 losses were by a combined 5 points.
  3. US Customs slashing cigars

    I've been able to confirm that it's happening in Miami and Chicago quite a bit. Check the zip code guide at (https://ribbs.usps.gov/zone_charts/documents/tech_guides/InternationalServiceCenterZoneChartTechnicalGuide.pdf) to see where your packages come through. I just think that the new administration has stepped up federal oversight and a lot of the folks working at these places are now hyper-empowered compared to where it seems like things were heading just a few months ago.
  4. First pics of the Rafael Gonzalez 88

    $150-160 USD.
  5. HSA Price Rise.

    Reminds me of year after year double digit percent increases in purchasing 1 million plus tons of rock salt at work. After awhile, you become numb to commodity price increases. At least we were able to institute reverse auctioning which instantly saved us/taxpayers 15-20% across the board. I bet distributors, retailers and consumers would love a break at some point but I doubt Senor Castro and the powers that be would be down for it .
  6. Juan Lopez Belux Regional Question

    Awesome. Thank you for clearing it up. Gotta love Cuban quality control.
  7. Juan Lopez Belux Regional Question

    If it's popped up over a dozen times in different places, it probably merits something. In addition, if a person just google searches Juan Lopez Belux, no information pops up. With the amount of fakes and jerks out there, it makes perfect sense for us to share info on non-isolated events, that's how we can help each other. Otherwise, it's just condoning the behavior that collectively costs us millions of dollars and even more hours of heart burn every year.
  8. Juan Lopez Belux Regional Question

    You'd think, but you can't please everyone. I just found it perplexing that it came up on Instagram, then looked at other shots of it over the past few months. There's no history of it existing (there is a JL Benelux tho) and no rumors of it as a pending release. My buddy and I did a pretty solid search and found nothing. This will at least create something that folks can search if they do run across it. It's not even a hey, is this real, it's a hey, does this even exist?
  9. Juan Lopez Belux Regional Question

    It also wouldn't surprise me if the JL Benelux had a bad batch of labels get out. But you'd think the wholesaler or shop would have caught it during QA.
  10. Juan Lopez Belux Regional Question

    That was a thought I had. It's a weird thing.
  11. Juan Lopez Belux Regional Question

    There seems to be a few different shots of this cigar floating around Instagram. It has my friend scratching his head that this is seemingly around the internet without proof of its existence or someone calling it out.
  12. Has anybody ever seen this smoke? I can't find any information on it and can't find a Juan Lopez Belux Regional Edition on any release list.
