    That’s very reassuring. Thanks for the clarification!

    Are all boxes inspected before shipment? I’m asking because I received a box of Monetcristo Dantes from FOH with the seals intact. But as the pictures below demonstrate, the cigars still looked amazing.

    Let's talk Steak

    Tomahawk ribeye, 2.5” to 3” thick. Grape seed oil instead of olive oil because it has a higher smoke point. Season with salt and let it rest at room temperature for at least one hour before grilling. Sear each side approximately 3-5 minutes at 500 F, then indirect heat for 15-20 minutes at 375 F for medium rare.

    Sounds fun. I hope your friends let you win since you’re passing out Talismans.
  9. Thanks for the review. Can someone please PM me on how to get these? I’d really appreciate it.

    From so cal

    Welcome! I’m also from SoCal
  11. I just got back from a vacation in Japan and visited the following cigar lounges in Tokyo: Le Connaisseur in Shibuya: roomy cigar lounge behind Shibuya station with a decent selection of standard marcas and vitolas. However, not too many regional or limited editions (only RA Club Allones, R&J Capuletos, Monte Dantes, La Gloria Cubana Revolution). I smoked a Monte Dantes (price was around 6000 yen) and thought it was okay but very spongy—I think the cigars there are over humidified. Torcedor near Maihama station: another roomy cigar lounge, but the selection is very limited. No regionals or limited editions. All cigars are wrapped in cellophane (weird). Half the cigars were NC. I smoked an Epi 2 and Siglo I and paired them with an Old Fashioned and glass of Longrow scotch. Total damage was around 8500 yen. Cigar Club in Azabudai, near Tokyo Tower: very small cigar lounge (mostly bar stools), but it had a wide selection of LEs and REs. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff that can speak good English and will show you aged stock if you ask (e.g., Bolivar Libertador with a 2013 box code). The only place I went to that carried Talisman (over 10000 yen a stick). I picked up a couple of sticks to sample back home. Prices are pretty uniform in Tokyo and cigars are expensive. I flew out of Haneda airport, which unfortunately didn’t carry any CC at the duty free shops, just Alfred Dunhill.

    Thanks for the advice Projectal, and Fuzz. My cigars are smoking great, especially considering that they’re mostly young. But what throws me off is that sometimes there’s a slight difference in taste within the same box, but I suppose that’s normal because it’s a handmade product and not because of storage conditions.
