  1. Got 3 of these to sample, cant wait. Wish it was a full box though! I also agree that the bands look awesome, personally I think RA should re adopt them permanently, too many cuban bands look similar, nice to have some that really stand out.
  2. I usually smoke outside or in the Shed when it is pishing it down or too cold - believe me you dont want to see any pictures of that old thing.

    A Song of Ice and Fire

    Just finishing 'Feast for Crows' at present, hoping to find 'Dance with Dragons' in my stocking this Christmas. Season 2 starts in April, looking forward to seeing the new characters brought to life.. Go Stannis!
  4. Haven't tried these yet but have got 3 sitting in the humi (also from Apr 11) ready to go some time soon. Can't wait.
  5. Great little smokes these. Got a Jan 09 box in the humi that has smoked well for a while, I reckon another year and these will be superb.
  6. This has been a staple of mine for the last 18 months, but I agree that they can be inconsistent. Only today I smoked one that started off really well, wood and leather with a slight sweetness for the first 3rd or so then it just lost its way.. That being said when they are good they are a solid everyday cuban, not overly complex but pleasent all the same. I always have some in stock for a quick smoke.
  7. There is something about SLRs, hard to beat in terms of value. I havent tried this vitola yet but it is on my 'must try' list along with the Regios. I also wouldn't mind giving the Lonsdale a try. I have tried the Churchill and a DC in the past, both were very nice. However my favoutite in the brand is definately the Serie A, one of my fave cigars ever, totally sublime when they are on form. If you haven't sampled them I would recommend also giving them a go.

    A Song of Ice and Fire

    Hi, Just wondered if anyone else was a fan of this epic series of books and / or had watched the HBO adaptation of part 1 'A Game of Thrones'? I have spent far too much time reading these of late, but saying that its always a good excuse for a smoke on the garden..

    Kick- Ass

    Love it, absolutely hilarious film. Any film where a 12 year old girl bursts her way into a room of armed gang - bangers, wielding a bladed staff and then says 'Ok you ****s, lets see what you can do...' before proceeding to dismember every one of them, is cool with me.

    Let the right one in

    Agreed, an absolutely cracking movie. 2 scenes really stood out for me - First where the young lad and the girl go into a storecupboard /hideout. At this stage he does not realise who/what she is and he cuts his finger accidentally, she gobbles up the blood from the floor and when she has finished looks at him and for a split second you see her as an old woman before she screams 'get out!!'.. Secondly the scene where she massacres the gang of bullies at the swimming pool. Both scenes are creepy as hell.
  11. I would go with this, relatively light, sweet and floral. The Old Pulteney 12 year old is also worth a look, it has a slightly different taste and is more salty, but just as nice. Don't forget a (small) splash of water and drink at room temperature. Roll a sip round in your mouth to let the flavours come out before swallowing and you will see what all the fuss is about. I couldn't stand scotch for years then all of a sudden - boom! I was smitten.... A good Bourbon is just as nice in my opinion as well. Enjoy
  12. Since I switched to a torch lighter (very recently) I let the flame do most of the work and hardly puff at all when lighting. I tend to get the whole foot glowing with the torch, then puff gently and blow on the foot to ensure it is fully lit. It seems to work wellfor me and the cigar is usually less bitter than it was when I used matches. However I am intrigued by the idea of purging rather than puffing... makes perfect sense now I think about it so wil have to give it a try.
  13. Hello everyone, Fitz here from Sheffield UK, the 'Rome of the North' Cigars are for me, one of lifes true pleasures. My intertest started around 5 years ago and has steadily decended into an obsession ever since. Wife & Son and maybe my record collection aside, there is nothing that gives me more joy nowadays than collecting, ageing and of course smoking a good cigar. Hoping to find endless cigar chat and a bit of friendly banter with like minded people. Thanks
