  1. the tail of the "C" in Cuba extends past the back of the "C"...…. Been a while, but this band is still turning up. Fugazi………...
  2. In a B&M in my state, your basic $5.00 wholesale cigar is keystoned, so it sells for $10.00 Add in State tobacco tax and sales tax, and that cigar retails for $12.00 at the honest shops. Some places it will be more. Adjust wholesale price for the brand, and you can see why cigars can cost so much in a B&M...
  3. buy them all. smoke them and you will learn how to pick your next boxes.
  4. MMMMM.... Camel Wellington and Toad Tartar...…... Makes a camping trip an adventure !
  5. best small stick is a draw between RASCC and El Principe. Best overall marca is Upmann Best bargain is Mille Fleurs ... RyJ and Partagas Most erratic, Monte 2 tied with Hoyo Epi Especial Most overlooked is Punch Coro tubos Most sought after......LGC and Hoyo Des Dieux Most improved.....RyJ
  6. I age in cabs,so when I get to the last 3 or 4, I open a newer box,put them into the cab,and put the last ones on top. I will note the new box code on the Habanos paper from the new box,and separate new from old with it. been doing this for nearly 30 years,and it works very well for me.
  7. obviously you should try one and compare the experience with the BBf. are the PCs getting to taste like the bbf, are they showing more maturity than the boxes you have ? all years of cigars will not mature the same,so you should monitor the '14 box carefully,and enjoy them when you think they are at the top of flavor. also seek out more mature Bolis and get a wider range of knowledge about them....
  8. Scientific Breakthru :side effects may include Death...........
  9. Repair and restoration of Big Healeys involves all the usual disassembly/assembly and so on ,and includes the occasional weld,ream,or outright fabrication. also there is usually some refabrication of new from the box parts,and the seemingly magical tuning of wire wheels. eventually we approach the rarefied heights of the tuneup,making every thing play in harmony ...... fearless........and every day.
