  1. Awesome. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  2. Great review gents. One of the few regionals I ever sprung for a full box of. I have only had a handful so far but I really like this cigar.
  3. I do not have everything, so I will hold off on the fancy box...but man, I do love cheese.
  4. Dammit, I'm going to need a box of these. I hope RG's lowbrow status means they are priced at $179 or less.
  5. I went to manual pour over coffee about a year ago. I use a cheap Hario ceramic dripper, takes a bit more time and effort than a machine but well worth it imo. You can really fine tune your cup. With this setup it also helps being the only coffee drinker in the house. Not sure where your overall game is at, but my recommended first step would be to always source freshly roasted beans, invest in a quality grinder and only grind right before brewing. The Technivorm machines seem popular in 'third wave' coffee circles, but I have no experience with them. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  6. Great news! If you are thinking about tracking your Cuban cigar collection, look no further. And the smoking diary is a very nice feature as well. Thanks Alex.
  7. Great stuff, thanks for posting! Seems like Aspergillus will surely show up in the mold analysis, I wonder if we will see Penicillium, or other genera as well? Fascinating stuff for a science nerd. Does anyone know if adding sterilizing agents to cigar glue ever became industry standard, and is it practiced in Cuba?
  8. Holy moly, that is a terrible fake
  9. Happy Birthday Di! You are the best!
  10. +1 on the positive feedback train. Used the PerfecDraw on the overfilled QDO I smoked last night...I had to make multiple deep passes, from both directions ...but the cigar went from unsmokeable to 'perfect'. Well done Rod.
  11. Fantastic post Piggy. I have pondered this topic before and I agree with you on all points...for me, I do not have 'a' cigar and based on how rarely I smoke, I never will have one. And I am OK with that. I go into each smoke with little to no expectations. I seek out the vitolas I like, welcome new experiences (including many disappointments), and just enjoy the journey for what it is. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk

  13. +1. RIP Chris Cornell, what a talent.
  14. Awesome work, well done! Love that hygrometer.
  15. They really have all their bases covered here!
