  1. I too have a Mag 50 cab from 2015 and it is one of my favorite boxes. Great review and keep it up!!
  2. Thank you to FOH, especially the whole team and mods who keep this amazing community alive and active. Met some wonderful people, made some great friends, and smoked some sensational cigars thanks to FOH. To many many more years!
  3. What type of Australian Jurassic creature is screaming in the background?!? Great Q&A fellas!!!
  4. correction 1599 boxes. Customs destroyed one of mine ?
  5. Actually, I had this humidor totally emptied out and in the meantime while I was prepping the new setup. I filled this one back up....yes....i have a problem. But, dont we all?! I should have my new setup all buttoned up in the next couple weeks, and I upload some photos of my wineador conversions.
  6. As per most of your recommendations, that you always buy bigger than you need. I am the poster child of the reason you get more space than you need. In fact, I too have a beautiful M+ THC Aristocrat, which I must sadly/proudly sell as I have outgrown the beauty. And living in a condo in Los Angeles, doesn't allow me to keep the Aristocrat and the countless coolers. So, if anyone is interested here are some photos of my M+ with THC, perfect working condition, please DM for additional information. Again, its located in Southern California, and sorry but the cigars are not included haha.
  7. Fuzz, it was great to see you again my friend. And as promised, I will be doing my best to visit Sydney soon!! Have a great US trip and an absolute blast in Cuba!!
  8. In Corona Del Mar (close to Laguna Beach) is Gulfstream restaurant, they have a great outdoor seating area with drink and food menu. You can bring your own smoke and enjoy the OC weather.
  9. Mine was plugged, tried draw tooling the thing multiple times with no luck, it was so over packed. I had no shot in hell of guessing what it was.
  10. Used this one [email protected] She let me know my emails had gone into her spam folder
  11. After multiple trips to Havana, I inspect all the boxes I buy. I have even pulled 5-6 boxes of Sir Winnies at Hotel Nacional, and was allowed to open them all. Only to find one box worthy of purchasing. I did have the intent to buy more than one, but both myself and the lady helping me could see the poor roll/packaging of the boxes. I highly suggest you go with the mentality that you know you can open boxes to inspect. 'I'm going to need to open these to check' vs. 'Are we allowed to open these?' you will see that most places will let you open them. And of course you can bring back opened boxes, how the heck else are you supposed to take a couple out to try while you are out there?!
  12. @First Lady can you double check if you received my email for cigar 2 your sheet shows that I did not submit. Thank you! Finally, got one correct after all these years.
  13. It was a lovely weekend here in Los Angeles, double that with Cinco de Drinko on Saturday. Got an early start so I could do the taste test before the tequila started flowing. Sadly, my Cigar was a full dud, lacked flavor, underfilled, and poor construction. I did light up a couple of the options I thought it could be to try and find something. Of course the cigars I tried were full of flavor and made me despite my Cigar 2 even more so. Despite that it was a great day with great food, great drinks, great cigars (after the blind Cigar), and most important great friends. My guess is in.... and it was left to a coin toss for me.
  14. Best Wishes Greg, I work with my family business! Seriously...Good Luck lol
  15. I visited Reynaldo last week, this is my second time visiting him at the shop. The first visit in October, he had the normal Elefantes. This trip he offered a 65 gauge mammoth Elefantes, which is more of a novelty cigar than to smoke, and then a small Elefantes which looked like a steroid infused Petit Robusto. I bought two of each to show the fellas back home and compare them to Elefantes of the past.
  16. Fellow FOHers. I am planning my friend's Bachelor Party (Stag do) and we are taking him to Barcelona for those festivities, but before a few of us are going to Austria for the F1 Grand Prix. As it is a surprise for him and he is the F1 fan. We are staying in Vienna and my knowledge on F1 is fairly limited and details about the Austrian Grand Prix even more so. Also, any suggestions on good smoke, eating, and party spots in Vienna would be fantastic Would really appreciate your recommendations from you all about what are seat recommendations, if anyone has connections to events/ parties/ tickets to attend, getting to Red Bull ring from Vienna. Any and all help, information is greatly appreciated.
  17. Los Angeles, my extra humidor is in Orange County, PM me if you want details.
  18. I have my first Aristocrat I am still trying to sell, as I outgrew it in about 8 months, and have already outgrown my 2nd. Looks like I will be making the call to Bob soon to design a giant 8ft cabinet this time.
  19. I guess next time, as they didnt make it home this trip.
  20. Terminal 3 customs agents were instructed to not let any, I mean any, not even one cigar unbanded pass that day, I had Alex's receipt which this trip they didnt accept (they have in the past). Rules stipulate that they can allow 20 unbanded. The head lady in charge wouldn't allow me to take even 5. All of my cigars with bands were no problem, went right on thru. It would've been best to have them in my carry on luggage.
  21. A giant F* You, to the jerks in Cuba airport customs that confiscated my bundle of La Puntilla. Was waiting till I got them home to let them rest before trying one. Well I guess this means I will need to make another trip to Cuba to get another bundle. They were looking oh so good.
  22. Sorry we are Going to miss you Chris! Itd be great to catch up
  23. Picking some up in a few days, look forward to trying them.
