  1. 1. Just about all political "discussions".. 2. Poor ventilation. 3. Poor parking.
  2. Cordova cigars is a fantastic lounge and one I used to frequent. Great selection and even better people!
  3. Earlier today I smoked a wonderful Fonseca No.1 dated UTL JUL 17. I received this box only a few days ago from 24:24 and though I usually wait the 60-90 days..I couldn't resist lighting one up. The cigar started off a bit muted but still had a very nice balance to it and also had a very "velvety" mouthfeel and flavor....until the halfway point. About 40 mins into the cigar I started tasting what I believe to be ammonia and the mouthfeel of the cigar started to change as well. I then had to set the cigar down and very quickly and got a headache that took hours to shake. So all that to say, is it ammonia that caused the cigar the taste funny and give me a headache or maybe just the RH and/or nicotine? Thanks!
  4. Major correction, Colorado*. My apologies! https://www.davidsonsliquors.com/downslope-distilling-old-tom-gin.html This site seems to have it in stock if you are interested.
  5. Ould Tom Gin distilled by Downslope distilling in Chicago. Insanely excellent and complex.
  6. Slight correction- Anything under 2 years cannot be called a “straight bourbon whiskey”. The term “straight bourbon whiskey” is when the spirits reaches and exceeds 2 years in the barrel. And 4 years to be a “bottled-in-bond”..with a few other requirements.
  7. Thanks for the quick info, they were purchased from our host here. They were also a HQ/PSP box. After hearing everyones feedback i will definitely freeze them!
  8. Hello everyone I received a box of RJ belicosos and one of the cigars on the bottom row has a large beetle hole in the wrapper that digs down to the filler. I have taken that cigar out and isolated it. I checked all the other cigars and the feet look fine and the wrappers are fine as well. This box will be smoked within a years time...should I be worried? This isn't my first beetle problem, just the first time it's 1 cigar and not 4 or 5!
  9. 2001 Cohiba Lancero. Surprisingly flavorful despite the bland and ugly wrapper. The only flavors coming through on a strong retro is milk and cedar notes. I can only imagine a oily wrapper on this would make it a lot better. Oh well! Still awesome 😁
  10. 15’ PSD4 paired with some Alabama Straight Bourbon. Delicious
  11. Hello from Mobile Alabama! Ive been a member here for several years and browsed even longer for knowledge sake. I began my cigar smoking journey way before the age requirement and with non-cuban cigars. I have smoked nearly every core line of every high-end non-cuban cigar and many boutique cigars. Over the past few years I have delved heavily into spirits and in particular, whiskey. During that process I was able to refine my palate and lost the taste for non-cuban cigars as cuban cigars were slowly introduced. No spice, (relatively) no harshness, and there is FLAVOR. Cuban cigars are just bliss. I am currently a senior at the university of Mobile. I also work at a premium cigar shop in lower Alabama. My family owns and operates a small craft distillery that makes Alabama Bourbon! But not just any Alabama Bourbon, Alabamas FIRST bourbon using 6 grains and local corn. I have worked there on and off for the past 3 years and can't wait to graduate and make Alabamas finest spirit. A few of my regular and favorite Cigars (right now)- Bolivar coronas junior/petit, Diplomaticos El embajador, PSD4, PLPC, Ramon Allones LCDH, Hoyo De Monterrey LCDH, RASS, and Punch Punch.
