  1. I would think that most airlines will continue to require a proof of vaccination though, no?
  2. Cava Benito for fine spirits (fantastic shop, insane selection!) and The Cigar Shop on Meritxell! Enjoy.
  3. Last night I had a SCDLH Prado with an egg nog / bourbon (knob creek). It was fantastic. I recommend it to anyone who likes SCDLH. An El Principe would be great as well. Happy Holidays! Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk
  4. So other than my staples I was able to find a box of La Cabana, Prado and the last one of Libertadors. I saw some Punch Flor the la Isla for 161$. The RAS, RASCC, PL Picadores and QDO 50 that I picked up were at same price as what is on YUL. Other marcas' prices also seem in line with the YUL list, except for the Montercristo that were a bit more expensive. I'll look more closely when I go back. Didn't check any Cohibas. The Prado is quite good. Typical SCDLH profile. Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk
  5. Hi, Made it to Plaza America this morning. Found some Libertadors, SCDLH Prado ( bought one for tonight), punch DC, QDO 50, PL Picadores... will go back tomorrow to buy (didn't have my passport with me). Prices were similar to YUL cigars. I'll also get some customs from Alfonso. Thanks for the input everyone. Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk
  6. Hi, Spending the week in varadero with the family. Went to la casa del habanos today to order some customs from Alfonso and check out what the Casa had in stock... as usual the ladies won't let me inspect the boxes (customers don't like it!) On the other hand, there's a couple of 2014 JL #1. A box was open, no beetle holes, claro and decent looking. Just not the shade that I would get... and no sheen. They won't let me go in the walk-in humidor either. Would you buy blind or only customs!? Thanks! Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk
  7. No Cohiba. Let's say Coro. No Trinidad. Let's say Fundadores. No Bolivar. I have the BF in mind. I would probably go with a Montecristo 4, just because it's so common and yet good.
  8. I don't know much about cricket, but Australia has a new fan: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/sep/09/australias-test-against-afghanistan-on-shaky-ground-after-taliban-ban-on-womens-sport Clever.
  9. Soooooo it seems that there was a bit of a glitch this week in our state run liquor commission distribution system: one store got 10 cases of Weller. Only 4 stores in the same area shared 16 cases or so. Weird. I picked up one case - my lucky day. Will likely share with some friends... don't know what the price is in the US, but I paid about 30usd per bottle. Great value, imo. Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk
  10. Hello gents, Just curious to know if you have discovered some new favourites or, on the opposite, if you were disappointed by a white whale that you were able to grab during the pass? Personally, I discovered some of Alfonso's customs - really good. Cheers!
  11. Because I believe that Excel is the best invention since sliced bread I ran some stats. Marcas that were traded the most, average trade value / marca and # of cigars per production year. FDC stands for Flor de Cano - it was the Regional... Cus were the 2 customs. Robustos (petit edmundo, double, robusto extras...) appear to be the most common vitolas.
  12. Hello, Just did a quick reconciliation and I really feel like a kid let loose in a candy store. Thanks to everyone for the extra sticks, they all look fantastic- although I am not too sure of what 2-3 are... Have a great weekend! -Bertrand Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk
  13. Hello, Here's the last updated lists - list of the takes below. This really went smoothly. It should become a yearly event! Thanks again, And the takes:
  14. I met with Francis at lunch time and now have the box in my possession. There seems to be lots of cigars in there - thanks! I will be going through all the cigars and try to reconcile with the list. It was a fun box pass (and a first for many participants) during the last stretch of Covid restrictions. Thanks to everyone for your participation!
  15. Hello, Here's the updated list. The box is currently making its way back to the Greater Montreal Area. Francis should receive the box tomorrow. There are some great cigars in there!
  16. Hello, Jeff (jhalischuk) will post the pictures of the takes/puts shortly & all the details... Here's the updated list for Phil - I think he's on a mission, judging from the puts he has in mind! 😉
  17. Hello, Thanks a lot for the extra Brent. Here's the updated list! SCDLH makes its first appearance!
  18. Thanks! The box will now make its way along beautiful lake Ontario toward Toronto. I will update the list tomorrow or Friday! Cheers!
  19. Club Habana isn't the same since Mons passed away... 7 years already! Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk
