  1. Live by the Gun, die by the Gun shows. I don’t know if you have Prime, but a one season (series) starring Tim Roth, that’s worth watching is Tin Star. It’s set in the top of the Canadian Rockies, probably not as high as Ft. McMurray but definitely several hours North of Edmonton. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. You forgot Kill Bill, and Jackie Brown, though a bit artsy and cult-like, but still bad assed lady action stories. I’m glad to watch female Superhero movies which are much the same as the action movie genre with just as ridiculous storylines and plots but I’ve liked Wonder Woman, Ultraviolet, Electra and of course the female X-men and characters without which the story could not be told. X-men first class introduced us to the female mutant right as Charles Xavier was still a boy. It will be interesting to see where this goes. It’s better or at least as good to see stuff like this given the same chances as “The unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” and “Orange is the new black.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Beethoven, especially “Moonlight Sonata,” and Pachabel’s Canon in D are a couple of my favorites but so many others. Mozart’s Operas, Symphonies, Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries”, Vivaldi “The Four Seasons,” Rachmaninov, music from various Opera’s like Carmen. There are literally gobs if great classical pieces. I love strings, just plain piano, brass movements. But I also love everything from Jazz, Blues, 80s-90s alternative, punk, heavy metal and classic rock and even old time Western stuff from the outlaw cowboys long gone minus Willie Nelson. If you haven’t listen to the guys from “2 Cellos” they make great stuff. Their rendition of AC/DCs “Thunderstruck,” is amazing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Gattaca is a treat on blu-ray but understanding Battlestar really helps even if it’s the newer version but both were epic series. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Repo man is another, though so much different, but a classic Sci-fi and a must watch. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Well now you are in the vortex that’s almost impossible to escape. Especially with a wife that’s apparently an enabler for gathering Habanos. If you must you just keep burning through them and when a new box or 3 arrive, you claim they are the honeymoon cigars and they mean so much to you. The handbag and shoe comment cracked me up. At least I’m done buying clothes as I’m retired. It’s great to be a one suit guy with a blazer/sport coat if needed. The suit is for weddings, graduations and funerals. Gun metal grey works for all three. I sure as Spit need to stop buying wine! Booze too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I use wine inventory software but I’m out of room. I fear counting cigars. Especially when I’m considering a Master case purchase. Serious acquisition disorders. Watches on top of that too. I need to liquidate some of those. I really love them all but wear probably 3 per month. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. About 25-26 Habanos and close to 15 NC. 4 large tupperdors and 3 large humidors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Enjoy the site. Some great info on this forum. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I guess if we add follies of our youth and NCs, it might have been a box of Philly Titans that we hoodlum teens put some money together to buy. Yes embarrassing, but we were 13 or 14 and you just needed a stogie while bass fishing with the Ugly Stick. Kids do strange things. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. A few years ago I bought a box of Bolivar Coronas Junior. The rest is history. I almost always buy boxes. They are stored in large tupoerdors underneath my billiards table. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It's really difficult for me not to just buy all Lusi cigars. Unfortunately for me we have harsh Winters and some fierce humidity on warm Summer days which are unkind to these larger cigars. They are however, right up there with Boli CG, Boli Libertador and RA Gigantes that have some nice age on them being so pleasant to smoke on those days that you have more than 90-120 minutes to hang out and just enjoy a great Cuban. When trying to analyze a great cigar I usually stick to water, but have been known to water down some of the drier runs or whiskeys that are not to sweet as to full the palate. Enjoyed this review. I completely concur. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. The BCG is a great cigar. I am fortunate to have bought a box a few years back. I liken it to the Lusitania in many respects. Just a sensational cigar that should have been offered like the Libertador in boxes of 10, then they might have flown off the shelves. I grabbed 2 boxes of RA Gigantes but while hood these need many years of rest. Hopefully tabacuba won't axe them as well. While I smoke many Shorts, Juniors and PC cigars, I feel that warm weather without too much humidity makes smoking these longer offering so enjoyable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Nice review. I like the honest factor. I was really having a hard time choosing these over the more pricy CORO, but when the price dropped just a bit I decided to grab a box and a 15 (5x3) packs of the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No.2. I have the Cohiba Genios Maduro 5, and while many that don't smoke a number of NC sticks haven't had many kind words, I appreciate their taste and construction. I do miss the days of more simplistic bands but counterfeiters have closed that door. It's happened in the wines and spirits world as well. You just have to know and trust from who you buy from. Provenance is so important these days. Thanks for swinging me in the direction of buying these. I enjoyed the Mag 50, but not as much as I had hoped. Perhaps a few more years on them will vastly improve their outcome. I relate Mag 50s with aged Oliva V Melanio, but with much more smoothness as Nica tobacco tends to be darker even on their best selections. Have you tried Illusione Epernay. To me these seem the closest cigar stylistically and taste-wise to any Habano and while quite pricey they are a very nice cigar but need a proper 2-3 years of box aging.

  15. Sometimes ha años are a crap shoot. I would like to try the Connoisseur but it's stuck behind several others. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
