  1. That's exactly what I told my wife when I read this story yesterday.
  2. Pappy Van Winkle prices

    Don't waste your time or money chasing the "dream"...get you a couple of bottles of Weller, E.H. Taylor, and Blanton's and enjoy!
  3. Congratulations to our New Moderator.

    Congrats, John!!
  4. I got a box of Upmann Connie No. 1 from FOH that had mold a few years back...
  5. Your first ever box buy?

    1- SLR Regios (GAT May13) 2- Monte No. 4 (ESO Ene14) 3- SCdLH El Principe (AME Dic12) Not sure why I thought I bought Boli PCs first, or even second...getting old...
  6. Your first ever box buy?

    I don't remember exactly which was first but it was either Bolivar Petite Corona or SLR Regios. I'll have to go check my records on that.
  7. Factory Codes

    FYI...the cigars I've had from TOS in the past year have been very, very good.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. I'll be celebrating my 50th birthday in darkness on the South Carolina coast on the 21st. Anyone else have a birthday that day??
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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.
  14. I've had Siglo 4 before...this one had zero DNA of the others...
