  1. Read anything about cigars, including drink pairing, and the ideal time of year/weather for the cigar I'm smoking. Frequently I work on updating my cigar inventory, especially the "want" list.
  2. Hi taxes in Mexico. They have to pay wholesale what other LCDH sells for at retail. Had a long talk with the LCDH store in Cozumel about this, how frustrating it was for them, that even though they sell at high prices their profit margin isn't high.
  3. Enjoy them. I'd love to hear what you think of it once you try one.
  4. El Rey Del Mundo Kon Tiki 1973 Los Andes Regional Production Vitola: 109 Ring gauge: 50 Cigar length: 184 mm / 7.24' Since I haven't seen many reviews on this special edition, I decided to have a go at it. This cigar was produced in a suitcase-sized box of 50. If you don't have a large humidor, that would cause a problem. The packaging was impressive, but perhaps not as elegant as one would expect for a cost of over $2,000, with a limited run of only 1200 boxes. As I opened the box the odor of fresh grass struck me. The enticing smell mad
  5. I buy way too many, but I'd rather buy them now and have them age, sampling them as they go. Also, certain LE cigars are unavailable or outrageously expensive once the initial production is done, so I try to put a couple boxes aside for future years. I have about 125 boxes, about a third of which I've not opened yet. Probably more than enough to supply me for the rest of my life, but I'm sure that won't stop me from buying more when an attractive offering comes up from Rob.
  6. Fortunate enough to get a box. I'll try to review after the first smoke.
  7. I work out 60 to 90 minutes, three days on, one day off, weightlifting. I don't smoke a stogie before I work out. I'm 59.
  8. I'm going to take a stab at answering this. Absolutely they're not worth the extra coin. And absolutely they are worth the extra coin... if you have it. A good quality diamond can be twice the value of one of the same carat weight, though the subtle improvements don't make it twice as nice, it's still double the price. A bottle of first growth Bordeaux wine can be a notch up from normal Bordeaux, but not twice or three or four times better tasting, though it brings in that much more money. Is a Mercedes really worth twice as much as a Toyota, after all, the Toyota will bring y
  9. welcome, to a fellow Arizonan. I'm in Tucson right now! Be happy to share a cc with you some time.
  10. I'll go out on a limb here. First I'd say not one of them is a dog. They all look great. Frequently people prefer the darker wrappers. Obviously the Genios would win in that category. That's a given since it is a maduro. But you also want silky, non-veiny wrappers. Unfortunately the angle of the light can misrepresent how big the veins are, but the Siglo VI looked the best in that category, with the Monte 2 seeming the roughest.
