    What Coffee are you drinking?

    My memory is terrible and I can't remember flavours but I remember it being pretty special; loved it.

    What's in your glass today?

    It was excellent. It was a slightly lighter colour than that 1st picture, another is below. I was suprised it still had some youth with good acidity and bubbles. It was the last of a 5 bottles of different vintage champagnes my dad was gifted and has had stashed away in his pantry for years. We had the 85 Krug last year; we all preferred the Dom Perignon.

    This was my first of the line. I would have preferred to try the Juniperos but this was the only vitola in stock. Was a good smoke but the epernays are the illusiones I really love.

    Its a blend of ancient grape varieties Obaideh and Merwah, indigenous to the mountains of Lebanon and said to be related to Chasselas Chardonnay and Semillon. I didnt realise there was a white until I spotted it on a restaurant wine list a few weeks back. Interesting wine, not like any other I've had.

  18. I've been to Disfrutar twice in 2017, once when it had 1 star and it was such an amazing experience that we booked again for later that year as there were 2 menus on offer and we wanted to try the other one. It had just won it's second star the 2nd time but the experience was not as good as the first, mainly due to the service rather than the food. Tickets was on the to do list that time but we managed to get a table at the Adria's new restaurant Enigma which we went to instead. I've recently just managed to get a table at celler de can Roca for May next year (had to book 11 months ahead) as it's been on my bucket list for a while. Can not wait for this and also looking forward to going to Girona as it looks beautiful.

    The LCDH has an excellent range of pretty much all cubans. Hajenus is a smaller range but sometimes have some LE's/LCDH that are not always in stock in the LCDH. Both good choices, Hartmanns on Beethovenstraat is also a good store. There is also a davidoff shop opposite the LCDH but that has a pretty small range. Cigaragua is all Nicaraguan sticks so if you're US based most of their stock is probably already available to you.

    Not at all watery or mild, I've been smoking through this box for a few years and they are getting interesting now. My experience with Le Hoyo is that they start to shine after 5 years and get really good around 10.

    Ive just finished this. Perfect draw, very long ashes. Amazing flavour, they've lost a lot of the wood notes they had when young and there's a nice vanilla sweetness as the main flavour. Easy 94/95.
