  1. Just cracked this box of Party SDC #1 from an FOH trade...excellent, surprising sweetness in the opening. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  2. Nice review gents. I really enjoyed last year's blind tasting #5, which was the VR DA. I also got coffee, chocolate, and some lovely raisin notes here and there. Believe that was also OMR production. I don't smoke enough DCs to justify a box but I would love to have a few more of those in the humidor.
  3. Sorry, couldn't resist I read your post in its entirety, and I agree. Have you ever seen the show 'Black Mirror'? There are a bunch of social-media driven episodes, all very dystopian, that you might enjoy. My advice is just to seek out those that are like minded and spend most of your time with them - that actually like to read, that have an attention span, that have emotional intelligence and understand written word and spoken and non verbal communication. We're out there! And do your best to enlighten others when possible. Cheers
  4. I am also mostly stocked full, and am taking it easy. Have purchased 2 boxes this year, may purchase another 2 or 3 at most. Most of my future cigar buying will be singles, small trades for stuff I haven't tried, and the occasional discontinued/hard to find/locker sale item in formats I enjoy. And I'm sure a jar here and there.
  5. Thanks, great review! I too had been searching for reviews of this cigar not too long ago and you are right...there is very little feedback out there. Thanks for doing this.
  6. Great thread! I have nothing to add to the wit, humor and eloquence on display
  7. I find North Korea very sad, but fascinating. To basically isolate and brainwash a whole country of millions for generations is unbelievable. I am a bit skeptical that the regime would do anything to really escalate a conflict with superpowers...but the nuke component is pretty scary.
  8. She's a beauty! Lampropeltis zonata. You rarely see these guys above ground, they emerge in the spring when things warm a bit, they mate and then by mid summer are mostly underground again. Believe it or not, people used to hunt these snakes pretty intensely for the pet trade, especially down here in SoCal. I'm a little surprised by how docile it is, just hanging out in plain sight and posing for pictures. Seems like a good smoking buddy!
  9. What a pathetic job of handling this. Abject failure. Their PR people will have a fun time digging out of this one.
  10. Torreon, first for me from a few singles I picked up a while back. Not sure if it is $700 jar worthy...but pretty damn good. Medium bodied, smooth and sweet.
  11. Great tournament! Congrats to Sergio, nice birdie in the playoff Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  12. Will light up a SCDLH Torreon sometime after the golf. Hoping Fowler can make a run here on the back 9. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  13. Welcome and great topic! I smoke a similar volume to you, and also often don't nub cigars, especially younger ones. It is not a contest to finish...if a cigar ceases to become enjoyable to you, there is no harm in letting it go out. I also tend to prefer an aged profile, in general. Cheers
