  1. I'm a tech guy like you, I understand it, I just reduced the idea to 'it's stupid'.
  2. How many at retail? My guess would be 99%. How many people are acquiring 'Cuban cigars' and end up getting fakes? I would guess over 80%.
  3. IMO Liga 9s, other than the original 2009 / 2010 blends, have always tasted like dirt.
  4. Maduro only describes the color of the wrapper. In the NC world it's going to tell you little about the blend itself. As such I'm not for or against whatever wrapper or binder they've picked, I'm judging the cigar on the overall blend.
  5. That's under Military and Civilian Government posting restrictions. This is not to do with general exemption amounts. Personal exemption is 100 cigars. It hasn't changed. CBP is always woefully misinformed.
  6. It is legal to bring in Cuban cigars from Cuba as per the normal duty free limits of 100 cigars / $800 as per above. Anything over that you would just pay duties if they assessed them. Although you could be assessed duty from the US, and then assessed duty in Canada as well if you were over the 50 duty free limit for Canada.
  7. I use a Colibri v-cut for everything. I have for years. It provides a consistent cut that leaves the cap intact, and a consistent draw.
  8. I take it to mean bold and / or complex flavors that you don't need to reach for. It's a bit subjective at times. The type of flavor has little to do with the level of body. You can have a full bodied leather dominant cigar, or a full bodied graham cracker dominant cigar.
  9. Casa Magna 2.0 in my end cabinet. The only think I'd trust my Cubans to.
  10. CDC just posted their findings. To no one's surprise the bulk of these cases involve THC products: What we know There are 805* lung injury cases reported from 46 states and 1 U.S. territory. Twelve deaths have been confirmed in 10 states. CDC has received sex and age data on 771 patients. About 69% of patients are male. Nearly two thirds (62%) of patients are 18 to 34 years old; with 22% of patients between 18-21. 16% of patients are under 18 years. All reported patients have a history of e-cigarette product use or vaping. The latest findings from the investigation into lung injuries associated with e-cigarette use, or vaping, suggest products containing THC play a role in the outbreak. CDC has received data on substances used in e-cigarettes or vaping products in the 30 days prior to symptom onset among 514 patients. About 77% reported using THC-containing products; 36% reported exclusive use of THC-containing products. About 57% reported using nicotine-containing products; 16% reported exclusive use of nicotine-containing products.
