  1. Jim’s all day. Best sandwich in Philly area is Eve’s lunch in Norristown of all places. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. QDO 50 In a DC Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The last non Cuban I smoked about 12 years ago. I think an opus x. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Sancho beli 2020…damn these are much better than the ones from years back. Complex as hell but with the signature wood richness. I’m in awe how they maintain blend identity with just a few leaves. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. A few years does a lot with these customs. I recently sampled some of the Alex puntilla I got in Cuba back in 2019, they have really blossomed into something magical. I bought a few bundles from AOC (Papo, Alex 54 and HLP) and also Yerandy, and I really think they need a few years but patience pays off. Yerandy bhk56 shows a lot of promise!

  6. Papo lancero while supervising child labor. Amazing so far, worth the coin imo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’m glad you guys are having luck with the perfect draw. I’ve tried to use about 20 times following the instructions and can’t get any improvement on the draw (or end up exploding the wrapper), end up tossing anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Johnny O EL Siglo 6 from 2018. I have a few bundles but wish I would have bought hundreds before the price jump. Probably my best cigar of the year, certainly aging like a Cohiba! Letting the rest go until 2023. Finished off the day with a HLP 60, wonderful leaf and construction but need years to settle down. I had to put it down at last third but I’m confident these will pay off down the road. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. These TVs are almost too good. Even after changing the motion smoothing settings on my LED UHD set I still get a soap opera effect on some things. My old plasma is the sweet spot for me too bad once it’s gone it’s gone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Two boxes of Cohiba Sublimes I sold to help fund a 68 Princeton Reverb. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Check out El Mocambo if you haven’t already, God tier SRV. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Might seem like a redundant post but every few cigars I have a puff that makes me audibly state how good it is, even when smoking by myself. Just had one with a 2019 epi 2 (50 cab) I pulled to baseline the cab. Of course it was the one with the big ribbon dent. These are the ones that keep you coming back, like that perfectly clean tee shot. I won’t be aging this cab! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. That being said, we need to call a spade a spade. These "vaccines" aren't vaccines, just as [mention=15810]LordAnubis[/mention] said, they are temporary therapeutics that help you manage the disease. The modern drug companies wet dream, a constant and steady income flow for years. Government protections preventing generic versions, guaranteed payments from the taxpayer, hell we're even paying to market it to ourselves. If some one had written this as science fiction we wouldn't believe it. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Pfizer+-+Kalamazoo/@42.2116813,-85.5616263,1481m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x88179e8a4a6f93b3:0x2325084a527b0d2c!8m2!3d42.2132465!4d-85.5561375 Ah, the anti pharma angle how refreshing. Full disclosure, I”be been in pharma my whole career including a few years in vaccine marketing with a pharma giant. First off, they are vaccines not therapies. Vaccines are never 100% effective at prevention so calling covid vaccines therapeutics is simply incorrect. Secondly, vaccines have never been a big money maker for pharma after you factor in compassionate use in less developed areas. Therapeutics for chronic disease are the real cash cows. Lastly, in defense of my industry, I love the fact that big bad pharma is still taking shit after two pharma companies basically saved the US from total collapse (with J&J in the mix and AZ helping worldwide). Remember the lockdowns and masking we all hated? Lifted due to the products created by pharma in record time. I haven’t heard any praise for the role pharma played in the partial return to normalcy. It’s not a perfect industry by a long shot but come on, at least don’t continue to bash the industry that allowed you to have some sort of return to life. I really try to understand the anti vax viewpoint but as someone who respects data, it simply has no merit from a risk/benefit perspective. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Can I just say I absolutely love the term “Yanks”. I am one and it is so appropriate to describe the “you can’t make me do anything” crowd in this country. Vaccines have the absolute most data backing up benefit to society. Number 2 health innovation only behind clean drinking water when it comes to lives saved. Continued covid infection among the unvaxxed is creating lovely new variants, it’s just the way it works. If we end up with a variant that causes breakthrough infections, I wouldn’t be disclosing your brave resistance to vaccination, it will be on you and your unvaxxed “cult”.
