  1. As is the same with most I believe the Topes was by far the best of the releases mentioned. While not a fan of the size on any of them, flavors were good through each. I was surprised at how much I liked the Dantes and thought it was worth the pricing as it wasn't super premium. The Capuletos I picked up on a whim because of the PSP pictures - thanks El Prez! Honestly - its a very consistent cigar.... but it is a higher price, but higher quantity. It will be interesting to see where these are in 5-7 years. Of all of the above to come in a 25ct box - I would have been happier with a 25ct box of either the Dantes or certainly a 24ct of the Topes over the R&J Capuleto.
  2. Maybe I'm a sucker for the "ritual" side of lighting a cigar - slow and steady - but in a non-windy environment the IMCorona Old Boy is my go to. The slow flame is nice as its hard to torch and burn the foot plus its reliable. In wind - the FOH lighter is always dependable.
  3. I was a cigar guy long before both marriage and children. I believe my first cigar was at 17. After my wife and I had two kids my cigars became less frequent for family time. At some point my kids won’t want me around as much and it will be as much fun watching them grow at their older ages as it has been so far on this journey. The reason we all love cigars is for the journey they take us through when we get to sit back and relax for an hour or so. Right now my journey is much different than it was and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I bought many cigars after my kids were born because other things I liked to do got put aside for family. When I bought I bought a few boxes to try, then a few more of other marcas to keep wondering where these cigars would go in 3-4 years, 5-10 years, and 15+. Most definitely over did it.... but I know my journey will change yet again. Now more than ever I smoke less and less cigars to not miss out on family. So I buy way less now... maybe 3-4 boxes a year. Hope this was helpful.
  4. I miss the clip on the cap from the first release more than anything.... but have found both to be just as good clearing out a plug.

  6. Weather here has been dreadful lately. So much rain I can’t get on my tractor to cut grass on weekends and the golf courses are unplayably saturated. The bright side is... my son and daughter now love riding their bikes through puddles with their Dad. Anyway... got together earlier in the month with two friends from my local shop, who I haven’t seen in a while at the house. I had a Talisman waiting for them each as we have been patiently waiting for a chance to give them a go. While still young the cigar was phenomenal and the four pillars bloody Shiraz gin went down just as easily. A great cigar paired by great people certainly enhances the day for hands down my best cigar experience Sept. “19”.
  7. Golf - eliminate the handicap system. Play straight up. No more giving shots to make it "fair". You want fair - put in the time and practice.
  8. Ken - thanks for the input and I took your advice. Largest fluctuation I have seen so far is +2 degrees. The area outside of the cellar is heated (faintly) and cooled, so summer its gets AC to keep it steady - winter the heat it shut down to that area and it stays rather consistent. If I see further fluctuation I'll keep you posted. So far so good.
  9. My wife has known about this for years. It’s actually a breast cancer fund raiser similar to no shave November.
  10. Agree with this 100%. But like @cigcars said... it's a good thing I don't gamble either. Just hoping their all good fights. UFC Pittsburgh from September.... one of the better series of fights I've seen in a while. Must have been something like 8 of 11 fights ending in knockouts.
  11. Yes, a cab together. As soon as I opened to check on them I noticed the holes, immediately closed it back up and began bagging (after a few expletives).
