    FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    A Connie A to bring my weekend to a close.

    Trinidad Shorts

    These certainly look interesting and a pleasant surprise from HSA. I like the Cohiba shorts but do find them a bit too quick of a smoke and often want something extra afterwards. They are great on a night out though.
  3. I love the JL 2 and find them very reliable. They’re not as good (for me) as a great CoRo, but they are definitely more consistent. I find they need a little bit of time though.
  4. Congratulations! What a fantastic post, certainly cheered me up after a rubbish day. As others have said, the resemblance is remarkable!

    Back in Cairo after a long summer in the UK. Just finishing off a Epicure Especial with some coffee after a day of unpacking and running errands

    So, what are your recent acquisitions?

    Always nice to pick up the 1l bottles at duty free
  7. Looks great and there’s still plenty of room for a few more boxes. Very jealous over here!

    Not seen this before from four pillars, but thought I would pick up a bottle to have a try.
  9. When it comes to ring gauge I think 42 to 47 is about perfect. I dislike the larger ring gauges as I find they can be a pain to light if it is bit windy outside, they don’t feel as comfortable and they look a bit ridiculous (in my opinion). However..... with Cuban cigars I would struggle to name a cigar over 52rg that, when constructed properly, isn’t a great smoke. The Connie A, wide Churchill, magnum 54 and 56, E2 are all some of my favourites despite their size.
  10. I don’t think I’ve ever had a la Fuerza let me down. I’ve not had any fresh but you can find them around with 2+ years on them.

    10k run finished and grass cut. I think I’ve deserved this Monte 2. I didn’t realise I was at the end of the box though!
  12. While I get the concept, I’m mostly surprised that no one questioned it. It looks like the cars that my 4 year old nephew will draw
  13. The Nissan Cube has always made me scratch my head and wonder what their design team were thinking
  14. A few arrivals for me today. A box of Romeo de luxe from the locker and some great BBF and Juan Lopez no.2 smoking stock. The smell coming from the bbf is extraordinary!
  15. So I’ve had this box for about 2 years now and each time I reach for a cigar they never let me down. Although it wasn’t the prettiest stick the wrapper was fairly oily with a good pack and after cutting the draw was perfect, which for me is slightly on the firm side. I don’t find these cigars change too much throughout the smoke and this one was no different. The first third was all molasses with hints of coffee and baking spices. Slightly under medium bodied. As the cigar progressed the bodies increased to a straight medium and the molasses character took a step back but was still there if I searched for it. Overall I would give it a solid 92-93 points. I paired it with a black coffee and water, but I can see why El Pres would suggest champagne or a good prosecco with it. I think it would go great with a good rum. As far as consistency goes I have been very impressed with this whole box. They may not be the prettiest but I have not been let down with construction or flavour on a single stick yet. Having said that I am starting to think these may be at their peak now so will be looking to get this box finished over the next 6 months or so.
