  1. Jan 5 cruise - bringing back customs has changed

    If you're a US citizen, you have to have a VISA regardless in order to get off the boat. My wife and I went over Christmas and everyone on the boat who wanted to get off the boat and go to Havana, had to have a VISA, even if they were not a US citizen. When we went, one did not have to have an official tour through the boat, they let everyone off of the boat that wanted to go and had a VISA, they stated multiple times that WE were the ones who had to keep official documentation for the OFAC if they ask for it regarding the trip.
  2. The only thing I've seen is that it is scheduled for "early 2018," and who knows when that will actually happen.
  3. Just finishes The Crown on Netflix. Waiting for the new season of Man in the High Castle to come back on Amazon.
  4. A few questions on Cohiba

    Statistically speaking, I don't think any Cohibas, CoRos or any others have been more or less problematic for me in terms of draw. You'll get some great ones, some average ones, and some that are plugged and almost not salvageable. When smoking a Cohiba, I get a lot of raw cocoa, with some grassy hay, and a nice sweet spice. Given that cigars in general are luxury items, I pay for what I want to pay for and don't complain about it. If I want something, I'll pay for it, if not, I won't.
  5. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Very nice RyJ Short Churchill NOV12 this afternoon.
  6. Yes, I'm in Texas. @Benzopyrene you're also in Texas? I'm up in the Metroplex of DFW. I wish I had more of these. Very happy one of my friends who has been smoking cigars for a lifetime gifted me a couple.
  7. Noooo Cohiba’s in Cuba

    Gotta ask, I'll probably get roasted, but what is SW short for? On another note, my wife and I recently visited Havana, and I can corroborate that in all the shops we went to, a little amount of Cohiba Siglo Is and IIs, a few larger sizes in singles, but no boxes. Otherwise, decent stock of regular production stuff.
  8. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Montecristo Edmundo Dantes El Conde 109 Edicion Regional Mexico, and posted a review for the weekend challenge.
  9. Saw the challenge so I went humidor diving. Plus no time like the present to light one of these up. I was given 2 of these by a friend and this is the second one I'm lighting up. Paired it with some Havana Club Especial, followed by some J. Henry and Sons 5 year Wisconsin Bourbon. Cold draw, lots of cacao nibs, dark coffee bean, and some underlying woodsy-ness to it. Nice draw, not too firm, not too loose. Upon lighting, tons of cocoa, like a hot chocolate, spices, vanilla, and some coffee and cedar. Middle, more cedar and wood now, and still a good amount of cocoa. Some more cinnamon spice notes come through now. End, more wood tones show up, oak and cedar, along with a nuttiness. Overall, at around $50 a stick, I would go back and buy a box! This is an amazing stick and almost 2 hours of enjoyment this evening.
  10. Favourite Havana/Pinar Paladares & Restaurants.

    La Moneda Cubana. Wife and I were there. Great view, we both had the Ropa Vieja, it was delicious! Cost was about $25CUC per person for lunch, with a beer, and tip. La Moneda Cubana Empedrado # 152 / Mercaderes y San Ignacio 861 53 04 Casa
  11. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Got home and decided to light this up this evening, cold but not too bad outside with a fire going.
  12. Very sorry for your loss. A very good friend of mine, fraternity brother and pledge son was just diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer that spread to his liver. 12 - 18 months are what the doctors gave him. It's had me thinking about this very thing a lot over the holidays. I would make sure there was enough of the following for those attending my wake/funeral etc: Drink - J. Henry and Sons Wisconsin Bourbon 5 Year Aged, and New Glarus Spotted Cow (beer) Smoke - Cohiba Esplendidos and Romeo Y Julieta Churchills (my two favorites) Food - Texas style BBQ (smoked brisket, smoked ribs, smoked sausage and all the fixins) Music: 80s hair bands (headlining Bon Jovi)
  13. Inbound Missile cigar.............

    Romeo Y Julieta Churchill, my favorite Habano.
