  1. How is the question only 26 years old when he landed on the moon almost 50 years ago? Something doesn't stack up... Sent from my Swift 2 Plus using Tapatalk
  2. Potential is in the eye of the beholder. I've smoked many cigars, aged and young and the ones I've enjoyed most have been the younger ones (in general, not always). There are others who will have the exact opposite preference but in a place like this the majority of comments will be that you need to let the large majority of Cuban cigars rest for a decent amount of time. Also a good point is that it doesn't necessarily make the cigars better, it just makes them taste differently, and to a lot of peoples tastes, the change the cigar goes through is more to their taste. Whichever works for you, enjoy it and don't be put off by what other people "insist" on you doing. Smoke you you prefer, if it turns out that "fresh" NC are your thing, stick with that, those CC you have may bloom over time if you stick to NC and in the future you may get a pleasant surprise when you dig one out to try again.
  3. La Escepcion Selectos Finos Ramon Allones Celestiales Finos Without a doubt.
  4. I have a humidor for CC and one for NC. I don;t travel for more than about 2 weeks at a time so no worries about not keeping them at an ideal RH, not nearly enough time to cause any problems. Cigars are a lot hardier than people realise so short travelling like this has never had any effect when putting them all in one place.
  5. Just daft, love a good coffee and spend lots on it but that is silly in my eyes. However, if people can afford it, why not. I doubt there will be much resistance to it on a forum where people stock up on luxury goods to set fire to them! Sent from my Swift 2 Plus using Tapatalk
  6. Great idea, can't wait until these land. Sent from my Swift 2 Plus using Tapatalk
  7. Oddest thing I have read in a long time!! Sent from my Swift 2 Plus using Tapatalk
  8. Never bothered too much about humidity, check it every frew months and not had any problems in over 20 years. Absolutely perplexed when I see people going so deep into it for something that is so simple. Cigars are a lot more durable than most give them credit.
  9. I was in a LCdH in Feb and they had a stack of boxes of the MdO2. If I had known there was such a demand I would have bought the lot!! I think people's point about the Behikes are that these days the price is double from most retailers against what they charged a few years back. In relation to the question about the clamour at auction time, people are buying into the legend that aged cigars are far superior to non aged. In my experience that is not always the case, in fact, it's not usually the case. An unpopular opinion I appreciate but for me, the truth. The prices people pay at auction are ludicrous, does encourage me the put some old boxes up for sale to gouge money from those with enough to throw about but I don't feel it is fair to take advantage of those.

  10. The baldy man ones are the ones that come instantly to mind.
  11. Nice one Mike, always good to pop a good friends cherry. Sent from my Swift 2 Plus using Tapatalk
  12. Did you just do the Amsterdam stores or did you travel to Almere as well? Some special treats in there.
  13. Haha, tongue firmly in cheek there I expect! 😂
  14. Worst coffee I have encountered is in France and the USA. Both abominations. Would like to go back to the USA and try some more "real" coffeeshops and see how good they can be. Everywhere I've been in Italy I've been provide excellent coffee.
  15. Pre heating the mug 🤣 Favourite cup is probably this one, got loads to choose from though,
  16. Bolivar Gold Medals. A wonderful smoke, the LCDH re-release were excellent and I adored them. Another cigar I wished I had stocked up on. I think they are much better than the Libertadores, although I do love them, the size is perfect for me, but flavour wise the Gold Medal wins hands down.
  17. Two times come to mind. First was walking down the road in Lanzarote in the mid 90's and walked past an Irish lad I had met in Menorca the year before and had gone out boozing with. Carried on that holiday and ended up smashed every night on the free tequilas they would offer up. As a 15 year old meeting someone from a different country in a sidfferent country two years in a row was amazing, particularly when they liked a drink as much as I did at that age. The other was a few years after that, was at a Jeru the Damaja gig in a dive club in Edinburgh when a group of girls pushed in front of at near the front. The one at the back was stunning, lovely short black hair and a tiny vest top on that she filled very well. As a great opening I though putting my ice cold bottle of beer onto her bare back would work wonders. She screamed, told me to fiuck off and turned back around. After that she kept turning round staring at me. About 20 minutes later she turned round and asked if I was David Hay. I was tunned, turns out we used to know each other when we were 6 years old. I moved away around the time and hadn't been back since and not seen her for about 18 or 19 years. No idea how she recognised me. She used to have really long curly brown hair and was a skinny wee runt.
  18. I have a few dozen espresso cups picked up from points around the world.
  19. I'm Scottish, no point in paying for something when you don't have to. He didn't need it where he was going.
  20. Just read a bunch of reviews on here. It must be possible as so many can do it.
