  1. I don’t think that would help. Gradual process. Not enough surface area exposed. I’m a huge fan of vac sealing.
  2. Employers should have the right to ask. Employees should have the right to refuse. Employers can then try to replace those employees. Google, Facebook, Citigroup, Tyson, UAL among those mandating vaccines. Once there is full FDA approval, it’ll become more common.
  3. 7-8 years is imo aged. What were once subtle hints begin to rise over the harshness of young tobacco as time passes.
  4. From the world he comes from, they can calculate approximate yield per plant based on grow conditions-indoor/outdoor, lighting, soil, temp, etc. They won’t know exact yield prior to first harvest, but there is a measurable baseline based on previous recorded conditions and a measurable “standard.” He would have been better reaching out to tobacco farmers though. Not sure many people here are farming tobacco. Mostly end users. It’s like asking a car forum what the production capacity of vehicles coming from a Ford assembly line is based on raw material numbers.
  5. Wrong approach to problem solving. Not too many cigars for multiple lifetimes. Just figure out how to live long enough to smoke them all. Get a chip implant from Musk, some prosthetic limbs, gorilla lungs, a 3d printed heart, and you’ll live to smoke everything.
  6. They do taste good. I saw a guy on the subway the other day wearing two watches on his right arm while checking his iphone. I also saw two guys walking down the street in midtown, while one of them was brushing his teeth strolling down the street. I don't think people care about ridiculous anymore.
  7. When i seal 5 ers, i lay em in the vac bag, use tape in between the sticks on the outside of the bag to kind of hold in place, then seal on slow. I stop it before the machine stops it. On shorter smokes, couldn’t you seal 5 finger bags?
  8. I’ll second that on those particular sticks. Not enough Selectos Finos. Too many others to count as well. Can’t have em all. Can’t win em all either.
  9. Depends on what you consider peaking. Covid times. Hard to tell what's what these days. The other day I saw a guy walking down the street around 10 am brushing his teeth in the middle of manhattan with his buddy walking next to him. A year ago that would have been strange. Now, it's apparently normal.
  10. Those RA CF were cool as hell. The encantos and alemanias were great back then. You’re absolutely right though-prices have seemingly moved significantly higher on the regionals. Not sure if they’re worth the hype anymore. I do wish I had gotten some of the Sir Davids. Super high demand regardless of the number.
  11. Edmundo Dantes Condes from Mexico La Escepcion Selectos from Italy Por Larranga REs from all over have been good Punch Mantuas from Italy the list could go on and on. The right REs are unreal and give guys the chance to try some ridiculous things. that’s what I heard.
  12. Moderna and Pfe are adjusting their shots as well or adding a booster. About to get my first dose.
  13. US is already mixing the two vaccines. Depends on availability. Hospital people I know had the Pfizer vac as the first shot in Dec and then received the Moderna shot in Jan. NYC is running low on vaccines. I was scheduled for 1/22, but they just pushed me to 1/29 due to vaccine shortages.
  14. I remember in 2010-2012 and on that some people said aging those years productions was going to be useless. They kind of implied the same thing about older stock being much better. I’ve had a bunch of stuff from those years, and they’ve aged fantastically. Doesn’t matter what it’s been. Cohiba especially has aged well, but so have Trinis, HUs, and just about everything else. Only thing I didn’t love was the RA. Just not a fan.
  15. Adjust how you age. Slow the process. Qdo will age gracefully and get much better with age. To each their own. No right or wrong. You can triple decant a bottle of 16-17 phelps insignia to make it more drinkable. You can slow aging, but you can’t push age on a cigar.
  16. I can assure you with certainty that you're wrong about that. Who stops buying?
  17. Doesn’t do it for me either. The hoyo des dieux? Now that is a real winner.
