  1. Factory Codes

    FYI...the cigars I've had from TOS in the past year have been very, very good.
  2. We do both road and mountain...road is more dangerous because of where we are, too many meth-heads on the roads. We have lots of mountain bike trails within 5 minutes to an hours drive. I would rather mountain bike than road bike, to be honest, but I ride the road because of peer pressure. LOL
  3. Cigars: All over the place but have found the Trinidad Reyes to be quite enjoyable right now. Music: Been listening to a lot of Steely Dan, especially since Walter Becker's passing this past week. Reading/TV/Cinema: Thank God college football is back... Beverage: Been tearing it up with Italian reds...Brunellos, Barolos, Super Tuscans Hobby: My wife and I have been playing tons of pickleball for the past two months with our "healthy" friends...we have "healthy friends" who love to bike/hike/anything outdoors and we have "drinking friends" which we will hook up with every Saturday now that its football season. I've lost nearly 20lbs in the process.
  4. I'll be celebrating my 50th birthday in darkness on the South Carolina coast on the 21st. Anyone else have a birthday that day??
  5. Interesting cigar. Wrapper was perfect, draw was excellent. Started out sweet and creamy coffee; moved to earthy, leathery, with hints of darker sweetness in the middle third; finished kinda twangy. I'm just going to put the names of all the cigars this size in a hat and draw one out...been 0/5 before, likely be 0/5 again...
  6. I'm surprised that MLB allows that to be done since they are so particular about what can and can't be done to a baseball. Sounds like it should be against all rules set forth by MLB...
  7. Almost 20 years ago, my best friend gave all the groomsmen engraved flasks. To this day, I still use that flask and remember all the good times we had together.
  8. I've had Siglo 4 before...this one had zero DNA of the others...
  9. Worst Siglo IV EVER...
  10. If you liked the Monte Open, you'll love these...
  11. Good call on rustic...other than that, minimal amounts of sweet cream, some pepper, a few sour notes, and a perfume-like hit from time to time. In all honesty, I have no idea what this is/was, but I would give this one no better than a 78...one of the worst Cubans I've ever had and THE worst cigar (with the exception of the Monte Open Pres stuck us with several years ago) I've ever smoked in any of the blind tastings I've participated in. I may not even submit a guess...
  12. Which One?

    Hard to go wrong with Barossa Valley Shiraz.
