  1. So I’m guessing now they’ll look to increase the taxes further in order to fund the govt overhead in terms of regulating the growing black market too? Kidding aside, good luck to you all in getting by amidst these regulations.
  2. What’s driving this in Australia? My knowledge of Australian current events is quite poor (aside from what I learned from Bill Bryson). Is it a health mandate (assuming cigarettes are the real intended target), or more control on tax revenue?
  3. I second this notion. My wife loves Papaya for breakfast in the morning. I hate it!! Smells like dirty socks...
  4. I’d say PLPC for your winter months but I’m assuming whatever you’d get now wouldn’t be smoked in the near term. Usher in the spring with Punch Punch or JL No 2. I’m really loving those two right now and both at about 200. Add a pack of cohiba shorts for the winter. My winters are like your late spring so I don’t worry so much about time outside.
  5. I personally would try to find 2 boxes of Ramon Allones Club Allones and get 2 boxes before they are extinct and gone forever. That’s my ATF so far along with the Punch Punch.
  6. Usually 1 per day but 5-6 per week. I'll usually skip a day or two to appease my wife.
  7. Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there! This is how I choose to celebrate on one of the very few days out of the year where I don't get cockeyed looks for stepping out for a morning smoke while not off on vacation... Party E2 SOM AGO 16 Needs a little more time down but decent flavors and noticeable improvements from back in March when I first lit one up. Wonky burn on this one but nothing I can't handle. It's almost like a severely diluted D4 and not in a bad way. Flavor intensity is more like the HdM E2. I like where it's going. Very nice, slow burn. I could see how 3 y
  8. My car is the one in black. My buddy is a bit of a photography geek and insisted on this session. His is the red one.
  9. This morning I smoked a Por Larrañaga Petit Corona that I had from Rob's New to Cubans Sampler that I got last year in October. I'd actually received two of them because I also got a different sampler which had some included. The first one I tried may be a few weeks after I receive the sampler was pretty disappointing, so I dismissed it thinking this is just one of the marcas that maybe just does not agree with my palate. I also remember watching the reviews on FOH where they said these need some time down. So I gave one away to one of my buddies that was at my house one night and lef
  10. I just realized later after my post that they had three wrapper options for this release. Which one is your fav? I loved that Cojonu so much and couldn't get it out of my head so I lit up the black label Lancero later last night. Good. Not as good as the one with the Sumatra for me. I'd order a box but I want to try the Habano first to make sure this one is the belle of the ball for me. Based on what you're telling me, it looks like I'll be smoking the TAA tonight and hunting down that 7th capa especial tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestions!
  11. Based on what everybody has been saying about Tatuaje on this thread and the fact that I have very limited experience with them (a few smoked when I first started with cigars and my palate was very unrefined), I decided to get a nice spread to sample from Stogies herein Houston. I picked up a couple of the tatuaje black labels(1 in Lancero), the TAA for 2016, the Cojonu 2012 and a store exclusive for stogies which is a Lancero blended by tatuaje. O M G. The Cojonu 2012 is so flavorful, complex and smooth. I'm blown away so far... this Cigar is absolutely box-worthy! Thank yo
  12. Good catch. I stand corrected. I definitely smoke 50s, it's just nice to see when someone blends towards the 44-46 RG as I gravitate towards them. Ill try almost anything once though.
