  3. Hi all, I should of taken a screenshot at the time but was more concerned on getting some as been missing out so often having relocated to the UK with the 24:24 drop time I miss mostly everything. Managed to get a quarter box to try of the Monte Supremos on 23rd November, does anyone by any chance remember the box code? Pretty sure it was GEM but anyone that knows what my OCD tendencies are like..don't follow my lead on having to label stuff lol, once you start.. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  4. I'm pretty sure I had mild/manageable Covid very early on in March as I too lost my taste/sense of smell; at that time it was only just coming to light that it was a symptom, luckily for me it was only about a month. My attempted cigar session back failed a couple of weeks into self diagnosis and isolation, as my taste and smell was still zero. Kept sampling sticks more spaced apart than usual and my taste and smell eventually did come back, took way longer than I've ever experienced which makes me think it was Covid If it's been months for our brother then most definitely seek medical advice
  5. Punch ManTua Edición Regional Italia ASR MAY 19 So I've had these a while and just hadn't gotten round to sampling them like some of you others have. The Laguito no.2 is my favourite format hands down, there's class and sophistication to this vitola, coupled with the blending here is providing a fantastic smoke tonight, so much flavour! Definitely some oomph to the blend (to my palate) and should age well. These days I ignore most other reviews preferring to make an unbiased judgement based upon my own storage preference then smoking experience - from what I've seen in with the major
  6. Gifted '16 Punch Punch [email protected], bro you were completely right with this one, smoking so well! For whatever reason it's taken me at least 2 years to get to this after this was sent to me in NYC.[emoji1666] One of those true BOTL that I always used to see contributing to various forums (a lot here when I was initially learning about our sport) and actually smoked a vast and wide variety so I've always valued your view and opinions when reading your reviews. Don't see you posting as much lately but life priorities change and social media certainly isn't everything..hope life is well
  7. Live in session, these Trinidad Esmeralda really are fantastic. BSM ENE 20. 2nd try on this now, I love Trinidad in general, another example of regular production done right.Great blend. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  8. Think it's H&F organised. I had an invite yesterday but have to turn it down due to childcare duties and in laws will be over.Gutted to say the least but hopefully will be other opportunities. Enjoy! Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  9. Well, way too hot the past week or so. The evenings have been pretty nice. Later start for me today, went to a social distanced BBQ tonight with a few of my son's nursery friends hosted by one of their parents. Lovely couple of hours chatting to other adults! Didn't hesitate to smoke when I got back, knowing the forecast is storms for the next 7+ days the opportunity is limited. Trinidad Vigia MUP SEP 18. Had some bad underfilled examples from this box but thankfully we're back to where they should be.When they're on these are definitely one of my favourite cigars in the HSA portfolio, the fla
  10. So facking hot during daytime.Had to buy an AC unit this year. Would be suffering too much without it especially WFH and wife 8 weeks away from giving birth. After spending 6 years in NYC, AC was the norm. Definitely hotter summers in the UK, who says there's no such thing as Global warming!? Nicely cooling down here, this La Gloria Cubana Invictos RE Italia hitting the spot nicely. Very slightly underfilled and open draw for my liking but still tasting good.

  11. La Gloria Cubana Británicas Extra, the delayed 2017 Regional Edition for the UK [emoji636] What a great vitola, the taste is already so good for such a young cigar.Box codes have been 2019 however I wonder if they did sit away for 3 years as to me it doesn't taste that young. That spruced up band is beautiful, reminds me of the great LGC Gloriosos. Tonight's snap giving away my prime location (for those that know) and preferred smoke spot although had to move away from the usual seat due to high wind, didn't want that affecting the smoking experience of this wonderful cigar.

  12. Happy Friday - here we are again! These weeks are flying by.. Absolutely scorching day in London today.Hottest day of the year so far.Much more reasonable temperature now to smoke. Custom roll repeat tonight. 5 9/10” x 58RG One of the best constructed custom rolls, perfectly bunched, check out the wrapper quality! Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  13. Por Larrañaga Coronas Edición Regional 5ta Avenida (2017) Warming up for tomorrow's herf, seeing friends for the first time altogether in probably 6 months since lockdown Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  14. I was really in the mood for some more New World sampling tonight but reached for a Cuban. Quai D'Orsay No.54 - MSU JUN 19 I can't say I smoked many of the older generation QdO but for me these No.54 are really great.Obviously huge following on here for these. Enjoying this more than last nights Esplendidos [emoji33] Dodged the rain here in London, been wet most of the day and earlier I was worried I wouldn't get a smoke in tonight. Those Fuente I picked out will have to wait another day [emoji847] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
