  2. Nothing official. Just "crowd sourced" by various members in the field. It'd up to @El Presidente to determine if keeping a stickied list of known factory codes over time is worth doing. IMO, I think it is.
  3. Yes. UAO is El Laguito. Confirmed by a trustworthy source in Havana.
  4. HAVANATHON 2017 VIDEO

    Fantastic event! Thanks for sharing the video.
  5. Favorite AC/DC songs?

    For Those About to Rock. Dirty Deeds Hell's Bells. Highway to Hell. So many more to name. RIP
  6. Back from Havana

    Good catch. I think that's Lou to the right of him as well.
  7. Back from Havana

    Thanks for adding the pictures John. I didn't catch that photo of us in the distance at Partagas Festival. I did a quick edit here. John, is in the black shirt, standing an puffing. Enis is standing with the camera and I'm down to the right from Enis in the white Panama hat. I belive that is Amir in front of Enis next to Ramon (jar guy).
  8. Back from Havana

    We stuck to the same routine for the most part. Hotel Nacionale, El Aljibe, La Terraza, rinse/repeat. TicTac for lunch was new to me and it was very good. Sadly my stomach prevented me from enjoying clay pot chicken and cigars in general for the last 24 hours before I left. Two of our crew did make their way to an after hours bar where their $18 rum bottle became $80 when the bill came around. And there was no renegotiating to be had. I'll leave it to @CanuckSARTech for a full "places to debauch" list when he gets back.
  9. Back from Havana

    None to be found at all.
  10. Just got back from Havana. Went with some old friends and made some new ones. A slushy Mojito with a Trinidad Vigia. My first ever Vigia. Loved it. The gang relaxing with a smoke at the Melia Cohiba (I think) Browsing the humidor at 5 y 16 The new Kempinski hotel in it's shining glory. Very shiny, but antiseptic. Like an Apple store. We had a smoke on the second floor lounge in the Kempinski. Prices were good, service was great, the ventilation was excellent but IMO, the decor was not fitting for a cigar lounge. Once again, too polished. I prefer smoking in the Partagas VIP lounge. Enjoying an early 1940's H Upmann Cristales with my espresso. A very good smoke that sadly is past it's prime. It had some interesting flavours throughout but had some bland points now and then. Glad I had the chance to smoke one though. My Havana haul (toaster and Nespresso machine not included) Two boxes of Trinidad Vigia Two boxes of Partagas E2 (5 counts) One box of Bolivar Liberatador Bundle of Monsdales (25 cigars) Four Alex PC and Robusto custom rolls. Two Robaina Lanceros and Four Laguito No 5's Four HdM Petit Robustos we split down there. Hotel Nacional ashtray, medium sized (2nd largest one) Ron Mulatta 7 Years Coffee. One Serrano and two Turquino One Cuba word champs hat.
  11. Cigars postcards

    This experience can still be had in Havana.
  12. That's fine. I just prefer that you find out via PM. Everyone has "snuck" more than their allotment at least once. No judgement there.
  13. Didn’t expect that!

    These are definitely underrated. As are the RG and PL Panatelas. These are great value smokes.
  14. Back in 2010,when I was still just getting into cigars. I picked up a couple of Rocky Patel/Drew Estates Java Toros IIRC. It was a 58RG box pressed monster. Supposedly infused with coffee, it smelled great cold. However, when I started smoking it, things turned bad, quickly. My fingers were getting stained and to my horror, my lips. The flavour was not really coffee like at all. The aroma was ok, but there was no way I was going to soldier through this horror show. I quickly dropped it into the ashtray to let it die out slow like it deserved to. I then went to wash my fingers, lips, face, soul, etc. I think I lit up a PSD4 to cleanse myself afterwards. So, in short. Never again will I light up a flavoured cigar. As bad as this experience was, it comes second to smoking a NC Partagas Black Label. That was a near death experience.
  15. That's around $55USD/stick So $550'ish for a box. That is not cheap. But being Cohiba, it will have its' fans and sell out in due time. I'm going to pass on them. At that price range I'd rather buy a box of Esplendidos or a 50 cab of Lusi's or Punch DC.
