    FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    A half corona while I enjoy the Cairo sunset. More or less every cigar I have had from this box has refused to burn past the first third. Let’s see how this goes....
  2. It's always nice to see a 50 cab but I can't see myself going for these. I can definitely recommend a long weekend in Beirut to anyone though. I had a great time while I was there!

    Asbestos Cigars?

    I have box of Upmannn half coronas and every single one I’ve had so far (around 9) has refused to stay lit after the first few millimetres. I think it’s a 2015 box too so youth shouldn’t be an issue neither should RH as everything else is great. I have found that dry boxing helps a bit, but it is very frustrating. I’ve just left them to age, hopefully that will sort them out.
  4. When I get to about 4 or 5 left I just think ‘oh no!’ And I try to keep away from them for a while. Its also weird but I only really consider how much a box cost when it’s finished. So as long as I don’t finish the box, I don’t need to worry about how much it cost! Haha
  5. I smoke anything. But I do find it hard to finish a box when I only have a couple left!
  6. I’ve never really heard of this so the cynic in me starts to think ‘gimmick’. But there’s no harm in getting a small bag to try out. I also like a black pour over coffee so would be interested I. Tour thoughts!

    Why is it so?

    It certainly is strange. I can’t see that the factory they are made in would make a big difference to the quality of wrapper at least - a good manager won’t guarantee only good wrapper quality being made available. Perhaps it is to do with the master blenders. Do they believe that a high quality wrapper is needed for Quai d’orsay, whereas in Sancho Panza the wrapper is unimportant to the final blend? I have no idea if this is true and I’m not trying to give it as an explanation, just a random thought that came to me as I read this thread.

    I saw in the new year with a Magnum 56 and a lot of whisky.

    A Monte Leyenda tonight. This thing is massive, but smoking perfectly and great flavour. I bought this single along with a Dumas in October. The Dumas was great but this one is surpassing it. Such a shame they are a bit out of my budget for a box!

    A Club Allones for me today. These have calmed down a lot from their first release and are smoking great at the moment. Should have gone deeper on them!

    A 2016 (I think!) Perla on a rainy Christmas Eve in Bali. I hope everyone is enjoying their day!

    So why no La Trova?

    I’ve been on the look out for a box (at a sensible price!) for months now. I had a single back at the start of the year and it was fantastic. I’m glad to hear that supply may be picking up again.

    A 99 punch corona for me. Going to a charity ball tonight so having an hour or so to myself before it starts!

    Cigar Boom in BEIRUT

    Beirut is a great place for cigars and the casa at the airport certainly has some good stuff! Although most of the boxes on the shelves are fairly fresh.
