  1. Some wonderful photographs. I really like how the upmann and Partagas boxes look so similar to today.
  2. Was this release even announced at the Habanos festival? (Either this year or last years). Very strange release. The cynic in me would assume these have been lying around in boxes for quite some time unsold or undistributed and now repackaged with a fancy new tube, band and price tag. I’m not sure I would even want a 7-10 year old Churchill anyway. There has been lots of talk on here about the poor state of churchills prior to 2014 with that year seen as something of a renaissance for the line. Why would you pay a premium for a cigar rolled at a time when the blending and care given to them was questionable?
  3. I remember at the end of season six telling some friends that it just didn’t seem the same show as the first couple of series. There seemed to be less dialogue/plotting/characters coming to realise what has been going on that made it all so watchable to me (just my opinion). I saw an article recently that had this chart in showing the decline season on season of words spoken per minute by characters, with season 8 hitting an all time low. It may be coincidence but it seemed to back up my thinking for a while.

    FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    I smoked a Monte 1935 Maltes this weekend. I picked this up in the 1935 sampler from a few months ago and it’s the first I have had from them, although I have previously sampled the Dumas and Leyenda. What an incredible smoke, it’s my least favourite of the three but still fantastic. With the scarcity of Behike and the crazy prices they are going for, I’m not sure why more people aren’t picking these up

    Current Fitness Routines?

    I’ve been on a fitness push for the last month and will be carrying it on. Im now mixing between running 5 to 10km and running intervals for 45 minutes or so. The gym gets far too busy around the weights at the times I can go so I just stick to cardio.

    Cohiba Talisman....."take 2"

    As the Tacos was a 2018 LE release it makes more sense that production may continue into 2019, maybe they didn’t meet their target in 2018 and they will now continue rolling them until X number of boxes have been released. It’s ridiculous that the Talisman would be brought back now. If they didn’t roll enough upon release in 2017, why did they ever stop rolling them? Since release I wouldn’t have described the Talisman as ‘hard to find’ either so I don’t think the initial production numbers were low.

    A La Trova and a beer for a warm afternoon. Not the best pairing but not bad

    Behike 58

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see it, the demand would be phenomenal. Although perhaps common sense would suggest that they should produce an adequate number of the 52, 54 and 56 first before adding a 58, but what do I know!
  9. A tough one this week, but Bill in first class wins it for me. 24 hours in economy with a crying baby...not even a frisky Scarlett Johansson could get me to willingly stay there.

    FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    A San Juan for me tonight. Not had one since they were first released.
  11. It’s hard to decide on a superpower for myself, maybe flying. It did make me think of this though (sorry for the poor link, no idea how to embed a video) https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2294480670771312&id=130593816777&refsrc=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.co.uk%2F&_rdr

    FOH: A Week In Pictures.

    The temperature here hit 45 degrees on Thursday, so a trip out to the beach was needed to try and cool off. I can think of worse ways to spend the weekend!
  13. It has to be crunchy for me. Interesting to see that the poll is exactly 50/50 at the moment

    After a hectic week with a school production to run and the weather staying below 40 today, I think I’ve earned this!

    australian sport

    With Kyrgios it’s become so sad and ridiculous that you almost have to laugh at what he’s going to do next. I like characters in sport, but this guy is just offensive. I cant believe Australian Rugby would do this to Falau just months before a World Cup. Ok he was warned last time but in the grand scheme of things what he was done is pretty minor compared to many, many others (not that I agree with him at all). If Australia somehow manage to get to the final or even a semi final with all this happening combined with their form over the last 18 months it will be the stuff of legend
