  1. Cigar Induced Insomnia?

    Its funny because its true. On an occasion Ill have a smaller cigar (PC or half corona) and maybe 1 or 2 beverages to go with and I'm wide awake and can't sleep. My normal is to have a larger cigar (Pyrimide, Churchill) with 3+ scotches and I sleep like a baby.
  2. Tobacco in Hawaii

    Kauai is my Hawaiian island of choice. Ill be there again this coming winter. As for the cigars I have tried the Kauai Cigar Company selections on a few occasions but have never been impressed. I believed the were the Island Prince series but I will seek out the Hawaiian Vintage on this trip. I tend to bring my own "unbanded" selection with me when I travel. As for the coffee, the Kauai Coffee is very good. It's generally available at most Costco's and although it isn't what I would call a dark roast its a very nice everyday coffee. Interesting to note in the article where is says “It definitely does not serve Hawaii’s sustainable food goals to turn valuable agricultural districts into faux-farm amusement parks.”. Kauai as an island is somewhat less pro-development than perhaps other islands. The seem to take preserving their island very seriously which is something I can respect.
  3. I got half my walls to 11 and have pretty much finished all my research with a few minor exceptions. I would love to get my AQ and BK to higher levels but it time to make the move. Handle is Big G (#290RUU98U) and clan is Winner Pegs
  4. Another here for Clash of Clans. I'm 2 1/2 years into it and sitting at max town hall 10 and about to turn it up to 11! The builder base has been a pleasant new addition.
  5. Alter Bridge is awesome. Mark Tremonti is a absolute wizard with a guitar and Miles Kennedy vocals are awesome. Their new album is good (The Last Hero), however I think they drag the superhero theme too far. Termonti's last solo effort was good too.

  8. Kennel Palate

    Once in a blue moon I escape the kennel and try something on the outside and usually end up running back into the safety of kennel as quickly as possible. Has a Oliva Serie V Melani while in Vegas last month. It was terrible and tasted like something you would find on the floor of the kennel.
  9. Ditto on the Dip #4. They were discontinued around the time I was starting to get serious about CC's and I managed to get my hands on two boxes.
  10. I'll throw in another vote for Turks & Caicos. Best beaches I have seen and the restaurants along the ocean are fantastic. I went there with a group of family and kids and thought to myself that this would be a place I would come back to with just the wife if I had the opportunity.
  11. Turk & Caicos trip

    I don't recall seeing much in the way in the duty free shops there either. The Providenciales airport is a very small airport. I remember getting a bottle of Zacapa XO from duty free there but didn't see anything in regards to cigars. Definitely bring you own and maybe you get lucky finding something.
  12. Turk & Caicos trip

    I wouldn't go with much expectations of bringing home a huge haul. I was there in 2014 and stayed in the Grace Bay / Providenciales area. There were a few shops who had some stand-up humidors with some Cuban standards. Didn't inspect closely enough to determine if they were legit or not. There was a small place on Grace Bay road with their own local brand. I had sampled and I don't recall it being anything to get excited about. Defiantly bring your own supply for smoking during the trip. Wonderful place, probably the most amazing beaches and turquoise water I have ever seen in my experience. Fantastic restaurants. Enjoy!
  13. LCDH in St. Lucia

    I was in St. Lucia probably 15 years ago just when I was getting into cigars. I had come across a small cigar shop in Castries which has a reasonable walk in Humidor with some cubans. I was relatively new to cigars at that point that i can't comment on weather they were authentic or not. If I recall the prices were authentic.. I agree, bring cigars with you.
  14. I'm in. Signed Fatty Fat Fat.
  15. Friday Funny

    I can relate to that. I wore a Fitbit for quite a while and kept on one night. My wife wasn't amused when I mused afterwards that "my heart rate hit 130".
