  1. A very late happy birthday to you Rob, hope you have a wonderful year... You are born on the same day as one of the greats of both Russian philosophy and Existentialism, Lev Shestov... The philosopher that offers questions instead of answer or a system... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  2. Sweet vs dry wine for cigars

    I bought: 2 Fonseca no. 1 2 H Upmann Petit Corona 2 Montecristo no. 5 2 Montecristo Petit Tubos 2 Partagas Maduro no. 1 2. Trinidad Reyes I am celebrating a friend's birthday tomorrow and I wasn't sure what type of wine would be best suited if I wanted to smoke any one of these cigars, especially since I haven't smoked any in quite a while and I want to try one I know I will enjoy, with a wine that will complement the sweetness of the stick... Which cigar do you recommend? Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  3. I just got back from Spain, thank you all for the wonderful recommendations... After reading your advice I decided to just get some singles... Anyway... I know that many consider wine to be a terrible choice for smoking cigars, but it is pretty much the only drink I enjoy, I really dislike spirits... What type of wine do you think is best suited for smoking? Especially if one is looking to highlight the sweetness of a smoke? Sweet wine, dry wine, red wine(my favourite), white wine, rose?

  4. On the first of February I am leaving for Spain. I have often complained about the horrible quality around, searched for loopholes in order to get cigars from Rob, but to no avail.(Although I think I might try again by sending them to a friend from France) Lately things have been taking a turn for the worst. So much so to the point that I mostly threw everything out after the first puff. I considered the possibility of something being wrong with me, but then a friend of mine from Singapore came with some Cohiba Robustos and some Ramon Allones Gigantes, and they were amazing. I finally learned that the LCDH humidifying system is broken... And also that they are bringing someone to recondition their cigars? Anyway, as such I won't be buying from here for as long as possible... Since I am going to these cities in Spain, I was wondering if anyone knew of any good cigars stores I could buy from. I am looking to buy around 8 boxes that should last me for the better part of the year... That is all for now. Thank you for your patience and support. I am growing desperately, even my writing is stagnating and my angst is reaching its peak... I need a smoke... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  5. Had our authorities been ever so slightly civil, and of course helpful I would have definitely done so, yet, in my country, all state employees act as though when you ask something of them you are bothering them. You cannot disturb the almighty employees who stand like gods next to us puny mortals... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  6. A month ago I tried to order from Rob about a month ago, but the guy from the post office didn't allow me entry for more than 10 cigars(I had ordered 22). After reading extensively on the customs policy, I have come to 2 conclusions. Firstly, I cannot find any limit on buying online from a firm from outside the EU(although you have to pay VAT and excise duty) and secondly, I think I was duped by that postal employee. For other members from Europe who buy cigars from Rob, how many cigars can you buy without having any issues regarding personal use. And how often? I would very much appreciate it if anyone could help me since the quality in Romania is terrible and I would love to buy from Rob. Thank you for all, you have been most kind and patient with my silly noob questions. I thank you again in advance. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  7. I have smoked around 300 cigars, I am not saying it is much, but for now I already know what I like. I have had des Dieux before and I loved them(around 10 from LCDH, they were from 2011. I even posted a review a month or two ago about one). I believe that these cigars were forgotten in a storage deposit, dried out and rehumidified later. There is no other explanation... They are completely tasteless... They overheat or go out... It seems like the only reasonable explanation... I do avoid most Romeo y Julietas(except for the Churchill and the Capuletos)...
  8. This box of des Dieux is so bad, to the point that when I gave one to my father he didn't like it(cigarette smoker). So, curios, I tried one of his cigarettes, and I swear to God, to my shock, his cigarettes were, indeed, far far better than those cigars. I hope they will turn fine in 2-3 years, but right now, I am disgusted, and extremely disappointed. There must be some way I can find a loophole in order to get cigars from Rob, without the customs busting my ass. I will very likely turn back to LCDH, until I find a way to get cigars from Rob, because these are unsmokable. Worst cigars I have ever had. So bad to the point that my first cigar, the Partagas P no.2 which I smoked before I knew any of the rules(puffing continuously, without any Boveda packs) was way better. Worst buy ever... And now I have nothing to smoke on New Year's Eve... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk

  10. Called from Cuba

    Great to hear that Rob. I hope you're having a wonderful time. It was just quite coincidental...Thought I should mention it... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  11. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Indeed, quite sad. No smoking for 2 weeks and a half, at least, since I am at my mountain cabin, in an area with no cigars... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  12. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo Des Dieux ENE12, not my cup of tea, bad burn, thin smoke, just a very slight sweetness and peanuts. I have had others from lcdh that were great, but this needs to rest for at least 12 months... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  13. Well, I have never been to Cuba before, but around 40 minutes ago I got a call from there, unfortunately my phone is turned off so I couldn't answer. Is Rob still on holiday there? Can I post the number on the thread or is that punishable? Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  14. I checked every single one, and they had none of the stuff that was on the cedar panel, but they had some crystals on them(which if I remember correctly it is a good thing)... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  15. It is very strange. This year, in March or April, I believe, they rated the Cohiba Esplendido 95 points. Yet it doesn't appear on the list, nor will it... Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
