  1. Been a minute since I posted Family euro jaunt Back in Ireland at present Staying outside Clones where we were married 10 years ago Kids in bed Wonderful times
  2. Of course. Let’s talk about the cases where packaging is actually involved in the purchase.
  3. It does. Read the question out loud. Then my answer. I said "massively" not totally or completely. You like cars? Architecture? Design? Art? Packaging is all those things. Pure blend of art and science. Packaging, outside prior experience, knowledge or trusted recommendation is the largest influencer.
  4. Funny you should post this thread. I went up to Orpheus Island last week for the 10 year wedding anniversary and took an outstanding quiver with me. Went with a PL Robusto 2007, a QdO Superiores from 2011 , my last HU Robusto from the 2007 Travel Humidor (my all time fave), a La Escepcion Selectos Finos and a Cohiba GR Cosecha 2003. All of them were outstanding. But the QdO I had on Saturday was the best.
  5. Clearly. Penny dropped. I didn’t even look at the program until just now. Great weather for it. enjoy
  6. With the wife being Irish we are rather anti-monarchist in our family. But with two young daughters the whole princess fest is difficult to keep on the low down. More notice and I would have definitely driven up for the champers class.

  8. Gonna add to this for today... A heavily pregnant Irish women gets into a car accident and goes into a coma. After nearly six months, she wakes up to find that she is no longer pregnant. Frantically, she asks the doctor about her baby. The doctor replies, “well lass, you had twins! A boy and a girl. The babies are fine. Your brother came in and named them, they are safe and with your family.” The woman says "Oh no, not my brother! He’s an eeejit" Expecting the worst, she reluctantly asks the doctor, "Well, what's the girl's name?" "Denise," the doctor says. The new mother thinks, "Wow, that's not such a bad name! I like Denise!" Then she asks the doctor, "What's the boy's name?" The doctor replies, "DeNephew." Have a great day!
  9. Bone in rib eye, mostly Black Angus. Cooked on Tosa Binchotan charcoal. Brushed with olive oil, salt, pepper, chopped parsley, mint, rosemary, chilli, garlic, lemon juice and finished with lemon zest. Rare. But prefer blue if it is just for me and not sharing with the wife and kids.
  10. Gonna chime in here, only because I know of two foolproof hangover cures. Both are a little difficult to acquire for every hangover, but I have experienced them and honestly vouch for them. First one is, get yourself a doctor or paramedic friend. Mine at the time was training for the ambulance service. Get out the IV saline and within 10 minutes you will be fine. It is truly amazing. Second one is, go scuba diving. Working at a facility, that I cannot mention, we use to go down for 20 minutes with a high oxygen mix and come up feeling better than before you went out the night before.
  11. Oh wow. Good luck mate. Would have said goodbye in person last week. I am sure I will see ya 'round the traps. xoxo
  12. This one is prolly my fave. A 2007 SLR Fiddy Cab of Churchills. They were dusty yet oily and had a serious ribbon crease. Every single one has been a delight thus far.
  13. Spot on Frank. Sorry JB, they are Cigarritos Here's pics form when I received them last December, when I got them for a Christmas present to myself from my wife. I do this every year, and wrap a box of something new and put them under the tree the night before and then act super surprised much to my own amusement. They are nothing spectacular to be honest. Probably too old now. But at least they are different, and have just a hint of the RG floral perfume. But I got them because they are in a really cute 50 cabinet, and are a small enough vitola to enjoy when out and about.
  14. SLR Churchills PLPC La Escepcion Selectos Finos Sancho Molinos Cuaba Tradicionales LFdC Gradiosos Party Shorts and RG Cigarillos for on the fly And had a couple customs and farmies in between.
  15. This little article got a revisit on some cool curated site again recently. --> And given cigars are a handmade product, I thought I should post this picture.
