  1. Purely anecdotal but last summer I had some Sir Winnies in a humidity bag from a shop in Switzerland I hadn't removed yet, had been there around 6 months. They felt a bit soft but I fancied one, tremendous smoke and perfect burn, out of curiosity I stuck a hygrometer in and discovered they were sitting at 81%. I took them out of there as was worried about mould but got me wondering. Would be an interesting one for a video, smoking at higher than normal humidity. I think Lawrence Davis who owns Sauters in London tends to keep his smokes around 80% and swears by it.
  2. Unfortunately not. I've not got a proper cellar, just a couple of wine fridges. Tend to pick up a few bottles each year to lay down and enjoy in the future. Sent from my SM-G770F using Tapatalk
  3. One last bordeaux purchase for a while. That's what I told myself anyway. Sent from my SM-G770F using Tapatalk
  4. These are both interesting bitters to try, the select was the original 'Spritz' back in the day and has a much more bitter medicinal flavour than aperol. The Gran Classico is interesting to me because the original Campari took its base recipe inspiration from Gran Classico.
  5. Monkey 47 makes a stellar Negroni. I have countless combinations but probably my favourite is Monkey 47, Campari and a 50:50 mix of Antica Formula and Punt e Mes. I usually do a 1:1:1 ratio but with this combination, and usually the stronger gins, I like 1.5 : 1 : 1.

  7. I didn't age them myself but I picked these Du Prince up a couple of years ago in Spain. The cardboard packs were discontinued in '06 according to ccw. Tried one at the time and was smoking fine. Maybe time to re visit them.
  8. Love tonka bean, like a mix between vanilla and cinnamon, it's used a lot in the UK by high end chocolatiers and appears in a quite a few European imperial stouts aswell. Pretty sure it's illegal in the US for some crazy reason.
  9. I think there is an element of satire in these videos as watching videos of Nick with a watch maker he doesn't carry on like he does in these videos. Having said that it doesn't bother me at all, they're just having banter and trying to be entertaining. If you hate these videos and it's because of the accent, clothes etc and not the actual content of what is being said it could possibly be to do with your own preconceived notions and prejudices more than anything else. I find them pretty entertaining and although I'm not into luxury goods personally I do like to see a nice watch, vintage s
  10. Cigars can only be sold in tobacconists which are state regulated, prices are fixed by the government and those shops pretty much only sell tobacco, I believe shipping outside iif spain is also illegal. I (used to) travel to a few areas regularly and there are tobacconists like this on every street corner ranging from having fully stocked walk ins to small fridges but cigars are available everywhere you turn. Not sure if the customers are mainly tourists or locals but cigars are everywhere.
  11. This doesn't mean vaccinated people still spread the virus, “Breakthrough” cases of COVID-19 among vaccinated people are expected. It doesn't mean that the vaccines currently in use are not highly effective. They are, just not 100 percent effective. So, yes, you can still get sick even if you’re vaccinated, but it’s exceedingly rare. According to the CDC, 87 Million Americans had received the COVID-19 vaccine as of April 20, 2021. Among vaccinated people, there were 7,157 breakthrough cases, with fewer than 500 hospitalizations and 88 deaths. The cases are about 1/100th of 1 percent of t
