  1. The bit about not altering their blends lightly is great info. Thanks!
  2. The Monte 1 is an under the radar cigar. I would concur that if you enjoy the #3, which I do, you will enjoy the #1. Add to that the aesthetics, feel in the hand, heft and proportion of a Lonsdale, and you have a truly winning combination in terms of the overall smoking experience.
  3. Pre-about 2015 8-9-8s packed a whallop. I recall Rob writing that if you were going to have one, it would be your last cigar of the day. Then, post 2015 and into 2018 before they disappeared, some of that power seemed to have been blended out. Still a great cigar, without doubt, but it did not need to be approached quite so carefully. I'd love to get Rob's and Ken's (and anyone else's, of course) view on how this post-hiatus batch stacks up in the power department versus past issues.
  4. Big Corp. Started exclusively on Skype several years ago, migrating over to Teams, which is the current vehicle of choice. Both have their issues. We have not authorized Zoom as a platform as yet. Virtually all workers are operating from remote, typically home, locations. 90% of the meetings are set for 30 mins. If properly run, that is usually sufficient. Anything over an hour is very rare and almost always inefficient. Video on is rare but increasing.
  5. Your Regular Production Cigar of the Year (2017 - 2020 production). 2019 Trinidad Coloniales Your Specialty Production Cigar of the Year (2017 - 2020 production). La Trova Your Best New Release (2019/2020 production ) I have only had the Punch Short de Punch Your Most Improved (2017-2020 production) 2019 Trinidad Coloniales Your Mr. Dependable Award (2017-2020 production) PLPC
  6. "Washington C.H." stands for Washington Court House, a town located between Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio.
  7. 2010 Trinidad Robustos T, generously gifted by a fellow FOHer. Fresh as a daisy; no hint of slowing down after 10 years. Simply outstanding. A top 5 all-time smoke for me and I have been at this for awhile.
  8. The high level of injuries have made a huge dent in several rosters. Interesting that in past years we heard that injuries were the result of having 4 exhibition games; now we hear that they are the result of no preseason.
  9. Can't help but think of the immortal words of Stuart MacKenzie aka Mike Meyers in thick Scottish brogue, "Would ya look at the size of that kid's head? It's the size of a planetoid and it has its own weather system! Looks like an orange on a toothpick. I'm not kidding, that boy's head is like Sputnik-- spherical but quite pointy at parts. He'll be crying himself to sleep tonight, on his huge pillow."
  10. The member of the bar from the Windy City is on the money. Partagas 898 is the clear choice. You certainly won't want anything after that.
  11. Contrary to popular belief, there were more false start penalties called on the home team than on the road team in the NFL last year (298 to 281). U.S. Bank Stadium (Minnesota Vikings) ranked 10th in the league for opponent false starts per game last year and, yes, was an exception to the overall league stat but not by much. That edge may be due simply to the obnoxiousness of a piped in recording of what is supposed to be a viking horn (sounding more like a moose in heat trying to free itself from a mud pit) rather than sheer decibels. Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, regarded as the loudest NFL stadium, ranked last in 2019 (0.1 false starts per game by Chiefs’ opponents). Oh, and they won the whole thing. So, for the most part, even the stadiums with the most well-known reputations for being noisy aren’t providing much of an advantage-- at least not in terms of crowd noise-induced false starts, anyway.
  12. Thanks for all the good wishes and nearly unanimous confirmation of my first choice! It will be a Bushido Birthday.
