  1. I have to say that most of Rocky Patel’s stuff is pretty blah. BUT the Royale in toro size specifically is a fantastic smoke. Especially if you give it 6 months onwards to rest. Zero pepper and just pure chocolate and cream. It’s complex and transitions. The band is ugly as all hell and they’re often rolled a bit loose but the smoke is decadent.
  2. Rob what’s the flavor profile of these beauties?
  3. May ‘12 and some rum on a perfect ny Saturday evening
  4. I used to do a steady weights cardio etc. the usual thing you know at the gym. But about 8 months ago I discovered Kettle bells and they have changed my life. I’m not talking about getting ripped and building muscle here. I’m talking about strength. Run up the stairs carrying your 50lb son in one arm strength. If you’re interested. Check out a book by Pavel Tsatsoulin called Simple Sinister
  5. This is awesome thanks so much guys. This is why this community and hobby of ours is so great
  6. This is something that’s been rattling around in my head since I discovered CCs after a long time smoking NCs. How does the blending process happen consistent in Cuba? What I mean is that for the most part, in NCs there is a farm (or group of farms) and a factory. And that tobacco from that farm is used year after year to make that brand. But with CCs the tobaccos is brought to one place from all of the different farms in Cuba and sorted there. How can the blenders tell just by looking at the lead how much and which tobacco they need to create the same flavor? Thanks!
  7. Well winter is officially upon us here in NY and that typically means I wait until March to light one up or have to wait until I have a free weekend to sneak off to a B&M which... in NYC... you can count on one hand. So, I’m curious, would any BOTL be able to have some tips/tricks on what you guys wear to be able to stand the cold for an hour while sitting out? I don’t have a garage so can’t do a heater. Thanks!
  8. Just want to chime in on Hudson Bar and Books. It’s actually one of my favorite places to go and you CAN bring your own. They just charge you a cutting fee. It’s a small cozy place especially on a cold night with a great bar and bartender. Sit at the bar and they will chat with you.
  9. Hey guys just seeing this, I’d be down! Do we have a tentative date?
  10. Hey gents I’m back and can report that the small cigar bar in the Dan Hotel is still in business. Freddy unfortunately is no longer there but it’s been taken over by a great guy named Ichai who’s slowly turning it around. Walked in on a Sunday night and had a fantastic Monte Petit Edmundo and great conversation!
