  1. These light brown oily wrappers on my pl robustos, brings out the caramel like crazy. Wanna smoke em all, but curious to see if they'll get better with more age ๐Ÿค”
  2. This oily Maduro makes me drool. Still young but making it hard to wait ๐Ÿคค
  3. Don't know why but it's not letting me post more than 1 pic at a time ๐Ÿคจ
  4. This cigar is from a box of psp from our host. The draw was phenomenal. A perfect 10/10. It didn't require a double draw. One single smooth puff, drew plenty of cool flavourful smoke. Effortless. I never get anything from a prelight draw as I'm an amateur, so i didn't bother. First third: the cigar started beautifully. Light spice, some clove and soft leather. Really nice mix. I was pairing it with Glenfiddich 12 years, and lit this after a bbq. Second third: at the start of the second third there was a nice milk coffee which i don't remember getting in these. It only lasted a few draws and was replaced by a dusty coco. Dusty coco is one of my favourite flavours in a cigar. It wasn't very strong but it was there for this third. The leather was gone. Just coco and clove ๐Ÿค” weird but it worked ๐Ÿคค. Glenfiddich finished so onto a bottle of Green Label that i have never tried. I'm a single malt man but I was at my cousin's place, so i couldn't complain haha. Last third: the cool leather comes back in, and the coco fades. Every draw in the last third tasted sightly different. Really really interesting. Predominant flavours in this third were definitely clove and leather. The cigar stayed cool down to the nub. I really didn't want it to end. 1 hour and 35 minutes in total. Really enjoyed this cigar, and I hope you enjoyed my review ๐Ÿ˜
  5. Wow. Bigger twist ending than Dexter season 1 ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿค”
  6. My haul from my trip to Cuba. Box of Maltes and CoLa. Several singles including some H.Upmann Sir Winnies which I have never tried. Also some mixed custom rolls ๐Ÿ˜ @El Presidente Alex from the Commodoro hotel sends his regards ๐Ÿ‘, top bloke.
  7. @Fuzz oh tell me about it. Dam tobacco tax. Thanks for the advice everyone. My flight had to be pushed forward, so now I'm leaving in 16 hours ๐Ÿ˜. Can't wait.
  8. Hi. So I'm going to Peru in a few days, staying for 1 week, then going to Bolivia for 1 week, then Cuba for 2 weeks. I just wanted to know the best/cheapest way to obtain my visa. I'm on a budget and i want to save all the money I can for cigars haha Also I have a VISA debit card, but my bank is unsure whether it'll work in Cuba. Does anyone know whether it'll work in Cuba? Are there atms there? I've been told to take Euros and convert it to CUC once I'm there. But I'm worried if I loose it. Plus the money wasted from converting AUD to Euro to CUC. I'm from Melbourne and leaving for Peru in a few days. Any info is appreciated.
  9. Hi guys. I have 1 humidor and 2 coolidors. I have 65% bovedas in all. I don't have air conditioning in the house, and I've been lazy and too broke to buy a winador. I live in Melbourne, and throughout summer the temp in my humidor and coolidors go upto 30ยฐ (86ยฐ fahrenheit) at times. What effect does this have on my cigars? Am i doing permanent damage? My rh stays between 60-66.
  10. @LLC awesome stuff. I love the coasters ๐Ÿ˜
  11. My fathers Christmas present this year. Very hard man to buy presents for. He's recently started to collect things. He was gifted a 'King George' recently, so I thought I'd get him the whole Johnnie Walker collection to go with it (or as much as I could find).
  12. I'm planning to smoke a RyJ Capuletos. I split a 6er 3 ways with friends, so i have 2 to try. I feel like the berry/cherry notes of RyJ go so well with Christmas, and why not smoke a LE I haven't tried yet. Plus the wrapper on em are absolutely drop dead gorgeous, that awesome reddishness
  13. Next box buy for me is either Partagas D4s or Bolivar Corona Junior. Been after a box of both for a while, soon as my pocket allows lol. And next accessories on the list are a nice ashtray for my new outdoor setting, and a travel cigar case that can fit 5 or so cigars, maybe something similar to @GrouchoMarx's one.
  14. Some recent purchases that have been on my to get list for a while. And my new puppy
  15. Sorry for your loss Frank. I'm in Melbourne, Australia, and I have family members dealing with mental health issues myself. If anybody, or anyone use know needs help with anything like this or remotely close to this, please pm me. I would make it my number 1 priority. My thoughts are with you Frank โค
  16. I'm in if it's not too late. Thanks for hosting prez. Any day, but preferably not Sunday.
  17. Wow how amazing. I'm jealous haha. Makes me want to plan a trip from Melbourne, Australia, just to sit with Mr Overton and share cigars and whiskey. I hope I get the chance. When I come back to visit that side of the world, it'll be the first thing I do.
  18. What a great tournament he played. Only conceded 35 games. Almost a record. Bjorn Borg won the French Open in 1978 only conceding 32 games. Nadal is right behind him. I thought I'd never see him win another grand slam with all his injuries. And to come back from injury and win with the second least amount of games lost, is just remarkable. I'm a big fan of Rafa. I'm hoping for another Federer v Nadal final at Wimbledon. That would truly be epic.
