  1. Good point, but I was thinking of placing it in a tube to protect it a little better than the rest.
  2. Here's the Party Piramides as discussed. Thoughts on including it or not? otherwise, i am considering replacing it with a PL Legendarios RE Espana or RA 225 RE UK.
  3. Hi Everyone, We're nearly there - just waiting on confirmation responses from 4 members, and I'll be ready to post the Box Pass Order. Hopefully I hear from those last 4 folks by today or tomorrow. In the meantime - I have collected all the Box Pass Cigars, so that list is ready!

Monsdale (Jorgito-Club Havana) Nov 2016 Custom Roll - chanceschmerr 36. Robusto Larga (Jorgito-C. Hav.) Nov 2016 Custom Roll - chanceschmerr NOTE: Cigar #20, the Partagas Piramides LE 2000 (Original LE), got damaged last night. I dropped it accidentally on the floor from about 2 ft high while collecting up the cigars for the pass. This is the last Party Piramide I have left available from my 25 box (I have only one other one left, but that is laid aside to smoke once I get my next promotion at work....or if I have a child someday). My first inclination is to remove it from the box after dropping it, as the foot sustained some damage. However, the rest of the cigar (aside from the foot) is fine and it will smoke just as well - so since it's such a rare cigar to begin with, I will consider including it in the box pass. Normally, a damaged cigar is never allowed into the Box Pass - it's like putting in a plugged cigar or one you know will be bad. If folks believe an exception is warranted in this case because the cigar is still otherwise fine and is obviously hard to find otherwise, I will include it before the box goes out. Obviously, the valuation for the cigar would be lowered because of the foot damage, but it would still be worth a decent LE in trade. Please post your thoughts on that, I'll post pictures of the damaged cigar shortly. I will clarify - if this cigar is included in the Box Pass, it would be the only damaged cigar allowed in. No further damaged cigars will be allowed in the box pass.
  4. Cigar Connoisseurs used to be great, they had SLR Petit Coronas and Punch Super Seleccion No. 1s back in the day! Not so much anymore..... It's true, they do have a good selection of Men's accessories, lots of humidors, etc. They are just always so pushy with the commission-working staff..
  5. Quinteros are not banned....but folks will likely find a difficult time finding an even value trade to put one in!
  6. To make it interesting, more than anything. Last one I ran, RyJ's were excluded. Same reason. This time around, RyJ's are good but Hoyos are not.
  7. I have a bunch of PMs to get to, but here is a sneak peek at some box pass cigars!
  8. Hey Everyone! I can now release the Participant List. It's posted below. As each member confirms their address and availability, I am building the Box Pass Route - as soon as all addresses and availabilities are confirmed, I will release the route. Just waiting on 8 more responses. Oh, and the Cigar List will be released shortly as well, hopefully by tomorrow. If all breaks well, this will be shipped out to the first member next week!

  9. That sounds like a perfect experience - I'm happy to hear that! I love having a cigar down by the harbour here in the summer, it is a great downtown for strolling with a cigar. It's just unfortunate that the other cigar shops were closed, but in the end I don't think you could have had a better time. Just next time maybe drop me a line if you're in town LOL. I'm rarely free these days but I try my best if I can!
  10. Yeah, those humidor shelves you saw in the walk-in used to be chock-full of cigars, each box different. It was like that when I bought that Sanchos. Now? There's like a foot or two between boxes, and nothing but bone-standard Cohiba/Montes.
  11. Interesting, an article about my local Cigar B&Ms here in Victoria, BC. What's fascinating is Old Morris's Manager confirming that "100%" of their business goes to Cruise-ship tourists. I don't know any local cigar smokers whatsoever that patronise that business. I shopped there many years ago but their prices skyrocketed, shelf stock plummeted and customer service cratered. I bought my first Cuban Cigar ever there (Sancho Panza Sanchos), but i'd never buy there again. All clerks are working on commission and immediately point you to Cohibas, as if the rest of the humidor doesn't exist. It's entirely unshocking that they have pivoted their business completely to tourists. A shame too, because it's a historic property with lots of potential. Goodfellas and Cubar Cigar Shop are the better B&Ms. Goodfellas has good events (Hamlet had a great event there last fall that I attended) and Cuban Cigar Shop has the best selection (so many REs!), nicest owner (Aemon is a pleasure to chat with) and the best prices. Of course, no Canadian B&M's prices come close to Czar's pricing so I'll never buy a box in Canada, but I still like to buy a single or two from a local B&M when I can.
  12. The year was 19-ought-6. The President is the divine Miss Sarah Burnhardt. And all over America, people were doing a dance called "The Funky Grampa!"
  13. Hey, it's my Box Pass, I'll ban HDM's if I want to LOL! Besides, I only joined that club in the last 6-9 months. I used to love HDMs. Something happened, I don't know what! Last time I ran the Box Pass, I was on a similar RyJ funk. Then, in 2014, I had some brilliant examples and RyJ is out of the doghouse now.
  14. LOL Welding torch. Nice, Ray!
  15. Oops, you're right, forgot one more! 19. No Officer jokes from the lower deck crowd.
