  1. I love the first gen X5's but that might not be a good purchase. I've seen BMW's go up to 300k miles easily but it all depends how it was maintained. You could be buying one that was well maintained and will have 0 problems but it could also be a nightmare. And most likely it'll be the latter. I would look into a toyota or even a honda pilot. My 2000 Acura TL has 185k+ miles now and it still runs pretty well but it's been well maintained. Japanese cars are more reliable overall so it'll be a better bet.
  2. For a 10 ct box of Sig VI you can only age them so much. I started with a 10ct as well and it ended up lasting me maybe 2 years max because I kept smoking them. I would buy a 25 ct box to age while you sample from the 10 ct box every 6 months or so. They are great cigars ROTT, just make sure they're not over humidified. I can't tell you how they smoke with 5 years as I'm still aging them myself, but I do agree with the others, the BTO 13's are amazing. I have a box stashed away as well as BTO 13 lanceros so I'll see how they smoke after 5 years.
  3. I never thought CC's would be legal in the US but now I can definitely see it happening in the future. If it did though, I'm ordering as many cigars as I can before price jump/decrease in quality or taste. It's funny though there is some truth to the article. When I used to smoke at B&M's a lot of the folks I talked to actually had no interest in smoking CC's. Most said they've tried them in the past and weren't as good as NC's. (probably tried a glass top box on vacation)
  4. I have a variety of boxes and singles (EL's, RE's, D/C'ed boxes, reg productions) that I'm aging. I have a bad habit of buying something and leaving it untouched for years and cigars are no different. I wish I could be like some of you guys and just smoke whatever I want but something always holds me back. I really hope I could smoke everything I have eventually but we'll see.
  5. I'm surprised at how many S2k owners are on here. I miss my 04 NFR AP2 a lot and still consider it the most fun car I've driven...even over my M3. Heck, I even debated getting another s2k over my M3...maybe we will meet again in the future.
  6. Well, I guess everything was already answered. I ran into the exact same scenario when I first started smoking cigars. My wineador fan was always on because my ambient temp was 95 and I wanted the temp set at 65. I would never get a steady RH reading so I ended up over humidifying the crap out of my cigars. Since then I've moved on to an air tight container which is similar to a cooler. I realized that once I freeze my cigars, I don't have to worry what temp my cigars are in. I made sure that the RH was 63-65 and now they smoke wonderfully. Unplug your unit and see what kind of RH reading yo
  7. I have a box of BTO 13's aging. I'm sure they are spectacular but I just can't bring myself to smoke one and break up the perfect box...
  8. I'm very surprised to see so many RA Extras on the list. They have been pretty disappointing IMO and last I remember most people seemed to agree. Not a huge fan of EL's but some of the memorable ones I've smoked were 04 RyJ hermoso #2 and Monte 520. I will try another 1966 soon but the couple I've had were pretty underwhelming.
  9. The LCdH in cancun had a few left at $100 a pop…I'm a big Cohiba nut and never tried a sublime but still couldn't stomach $100/stick price tag...
  10. I love fun to drive cars and verts…what can be better than a 6MT V8 M3 vert?
  11. So I smoked a PLP the other night during my lunch break at work. Only had enough time to finish a little more than half but I didn't feel so bad tossing it since it cost so little. As for the cigar, is it the best tasting cigar I've had? Definitely not. Is it the worst I've had? Definitely not. Is it the best cigar I've had for the price? Absolutely! I was actually pleasantly surprised at how the cigar smoked. It wasn't very flavorful but it reminded me of the PLPC and enjoyable for a cigar that's so cheap. I understand these are short filler but the ash held on and the draw was pretty spo
  12. Never actually "smoked through a box" before until I got my box of Hoyo Palmas Extras. I've been sharing them with my buddies who just got into smoking cigars so they depleted way too fast. Have some back up coming in the mail but I'm not sure if it'll arrive fast enough. For the price and the taste these are the best bang for buck cigar I've ever bought in my cigar smoking career.
  13. Great review. I've only had 1 punch churchill, although it wasn't 10 years old, it was still pleasant. I don't know why I don't have more of these in my stash.
  14. I have a box from '12 I believe. Smoked a few, wasn't feeling it, traded away a couple. Have about 4 left and I think I'll just let them sit for a while. Overall a huge disappointment, IMO LGC is meant to be <42 RG, not a 54 RG like its NC counterpart. Give me LGC MdO 1's all day any day.
  15. I think the skinnier cigars in DB's suffer from this more. Lonsdales, Laguito 1's, etc. Personally I am not a fan of the box pressed cigars, but sometimes that's the only way it comes so I have no choice. Although I suppose if they are not square enough for your taste you could always add more "press" to them by putting some cider blocks on top.
