  1. Oddly sparse facial hair. That’s how he did it. Distracted everybody with that.
  2. Great return on your investment by any standards. I have a Jag. I refer to Rob’s earlier Land Rover remark.
  3. I understood precisely none of the above. Where do I put the coal again?
  4. I like it when smoke comes out the unclipped end. ?
  5. The “You Effing Numpty, What Were You Thinking” award must go to me. I had tickets for Queen at Knebworth in 1986. I was doing my final exams at school. I sold the tickets, and did the exams. I failed most of those exams. It was Freddie’s last gig. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. Ok, I’m going for The Ladykillers, and A Few Good Men.
  7. I’m surprised the car even touched you on its way over. Was it a go-kart? Still at least you know it can’t happen again now you’re 2cm shorter! Joking aside, I’m glad you’re still in one piece and on the mend, mate. ? I nominate “Honey Badger” as your new nickname, although I hear Rob has a better one... ? Get well soon pal.
  8. Esplendidos on a resplendent morning. UME ABR 15
  9. Continuing my tasting of 2016 Cuban customs, this is an Alex Churchill, probably now the best of the customs I brought home. I can only describe it as a beautiful beast. Not unlike a Boli Tubo No.1, in that it combines floral notes with a seriously full body. Absolutely brilliant, but I definitely needed to eat something afterwards! The pic makes it look a little darker than it actually was.
  10. Revisiting a couple of customs today. Yolanda No.2 has been fireproof until now, but this was all good. Reynaldo Cañonazo was like a windsock until I figured out why. Lol
  11. HDMDC LOM JUN 13. Very pleasant but no wow factor.
  12. RAG from EML SEP 14. Really in their prime now.
  13. Today’s Punch DC from MAE JUN 14 is far outclassing yesterday Cohiba Esplendidos from UME ABR 15.
  14. People always seem to be seduced by overly fancy dishes on a curry house menu, but a curry house that does the basics well is worth its weight in gold. Keep it simple. Lamb Bhuna.
  15. A real biggie today - HdM Maravillas from 2016. At 55rg by 233mm, cigars don’t come much bigger than this monster (see pic for comparison with a Trini Fundadores). A generous gift from a colleague, this beauty has been sitting in my desktop humi for a couple of years. Today’s the day! Draw is a bit on the looser side (I used a punch cutter), but burn has been perfect without needing touching up. Very little evolution, just creamy, nutty goodness all the way. Beautiful!
  16. 2016 Reynaldo Cañonazo. Cheers for the reminder @Tino!
  17. Alex Lancero from May 16. Monstrously strong when fresh, these have balanced out nicely over time. Nutty, sweet and creamy. Like SP without the saltiness.
  18. Boli Gold Medal, courtesy of @Luca. Lovely smoke, a bit lighter-bodied than I expected. Thanks mate! Enjoying this ED Conde Beli, courtesy of @ElJavi76. Cheers buddy!
  19. One is never too old to learn from a master, Mr. Kidd.
