  1. Corona Gorda one of my favourites also... unfortunately it is a vitola that seems to be less popular in terms of production
  2. Notwithstanding the current situation - gym's being closed. Access to "decent" quality equipment for purchase at this juncture is a challenge. Lack of availability along with price gouging. Definitely prefer the home set up. Basically powerlifting. So relatively simple in terms of equipment requirements (rack, bench, barbell and weights). Some folks require the discipline of going to a gym. Maybe motivation along with the "social" aspect. I look at more in terms of travel time + gym membership. Ownership pays for itself fairly quickly (depending on the price of admission of course)
  3. I have been a loyal customer of Cheaney - for years. Excellent quality and workmanship. https://www.theiconic.com.au/cheaney/ https://www.cheaney.co.uk/men-c48
  4. Refer to mine as = How to rescue poor flavoured scotch, bourbon, rye... Rusty Nail: Scotch 2/3 to 1/3 Drambuie (or Glayva - even Cointreau @ a pinch) Old Fashioned: 2oz of bourbon/rye Tsp of sugar/or sugar cube A dash or two of bitters
  5. This chap hoarding thermometers @ Costco (for resale)...
  6. Most: RE/LE Cohiba Trinidad Qd'O Juan Lopez Specific sticks: SC El principe Bolivar Belicoso Finos Montecristo #1
  7. I would say exactly the same thing. Sir Winnie have had consistent flavour and construction over the years. If it were based on production cycle/availability then SW doesn't win. So whenever there is an opportunity then I would pounce on them.
  8. Although I enjoy the #2. Mag46 is a staple in my supply and prefer the format/vitola
  9. Everything is personal touch and opinion.... I would not purchase another Xikar product. You can refer to my commentary But I digress. Furthermore, in discussion with Xikar reps - about an alternative to my aforementioned problems - they did not recommend the XO. There were comments about too many moving parts, higher repair ratios... The Enso has not been released so who knows what that will be like. Colibri does have the option of the SV-Cut ( which offers both "V" and "straight" cut.
