  1. Scheduled for theaters in my area (Chicago suburbs) starting Dec 17.
  2. Yes and no to both questions. I think there are at least two distinct flavor profiles within the vast RyJ lineup. I find the PCs, the Belicosos and the Ex 4 to have a similar flavor DNA, while the Churchill varieties and the Cedros are from two other parts of the family tree--to me anyway. I like the PC and in my experience they are good to go right away--no need to wait. I am part way through a second box of EAG May 15 which I bought from Rob in early 2016. I bought them as I was building up my PCs, to bridge the gap while HUPC, Coloniales and PLPC were gaining some age. The first box was gone in 3 months; they were like popcorn. Long pause to start the second box and they are doing nicely but I miss the youthful snap. I would guess that they will mature gracefully for the next couple years but I do not expect them to be something where aged nuance will necessarily develop. Buy PLPC if that is the goal and smoke these up in the interim.

    Has the 2018 12YO been released yet? If so, anyone tried it? Would be esp interested if someone can compare it to the 17. From recent releases of the 12, are there certain ones to avoid or seek out? I enjoy the 17 but have not tried others. thanks in advance.

    Petit Robusto V Corona

    I much prefer the Coronas size. The extra length seems to provide more of an evolution during the smoke time and it has a better feel in both the hand and the mouth. The No. 3 kills the PE. The QdO Coronas is a fine cigar; a personal favorite. The QdO 50...isn't--at least not yet.
  5. Nice review. Trinidad is my favorite marca but not because each of their cigars shares a wonderful common Trinidad family flavor profile. They don't. In fact, I find it to be exactly the opposite of that. To me, each of their regular offerings is not only completely different from anything else in the Trini line, they are also each unique in the world of cigars. The Reyes, Coloniales, Vigia and Fundadores to me each taste like no other cigar. And, bonus, I happen to really like each of them!
  6. 1. Partagas Shorts (50) 2. Trinidad Coloniales 3. PLPC 4. Quai d'Orsay Coronas 5. Cohiba Coronas Especiales 6. Partagas 898 7. Cohiba Lanceros 8. Cohiba Siglo IV 9. RyJ Churchill 10. Partagas Serie E No. 2
  7. First time in many years that I have been as excited for the start of a Bears season. Coach Nagy is a complete breath of fresh air and it has proved infectious across the entire organization. Will that excitement last after a few losses? Hopefully, the playoffs remain in sight as a realistic goal for the duration.
  8. Rob has commented previously on the fact that we are starting to see Code dates a mere 2, 3 or 4 months old, which has not been the case previously but is no doubt due to supply issues. My question--and strike me down if it has been asked and answered already (mea culpa!)--any thoughts on whether the standard advice on waiting still holds or are you guys seeing these freshies coming in really hot and in need of an extended down time?
  9. IMHO No. 1 is best of bunch, followed by the tragically under-the-radar No.3.
  10. Javi, Many of us can identify with much of what you're feeling. By the time you blink, you will be at her graduation, so pay attention and make each moment count.
  11. In a word--yes, they are generally more up front, bright and vibrant. They are purpose built that way to fit specific needs and smoking windows. I have often referred to Parti Shorts as a "wham bam thank you ma'am cigar" and it works so well in the morning as a slap-in-the-face welcome to the day--which is also a time slot well suited to a high-intensity, short-duration, cigar. For this reason, many prefer this profile when they are young and fresh, still retaining that snap before age sands down the elbows and knees.
  12. A Trinidad Lonsdale, called the Caribe

    Sounds like the A-H is a perfect car for him.
  14. Soap. Liquid dishwashing soap, to be specific. Many times. Typically fades after 30 secs or so.
