Marevas (2/5)

  1. I use the same weatherproof tupperware containers from The Container Store. But I use about a half dozen 62% Boveda packets instead and my calibrated hygrometers register about 62-64% with those packets. I think it's helped a little.
  2. $27 now and no longer 12 years. Sigh. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Henry McKenna 10yr is sub $30 at Costco and bigger liquor chains. Great bang for the buck and a slap in the face to some of the big names mentioned repeatedly in this thread who have removed their age statements over the last few years while raising prices at the same time.

  4. The Occidental. Period. I take a smoke there any time I am in SF. Laid back, unpretentious. Great solo or in a group. BYO friendly ($5) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Some of my favorites from late summer / early Fall here. Montecristo No 2. Lake Waulenpaupack. Poconos, PA Por Larranaga Panetela. Woodstock, NY Romeo y Julieta Churchill. Woodstock, NY H. Upmann Connie A. Woodstock, NY Cohiba Robusto. Stogies bar. Montreal, Quebec. Enjoying as I post this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. First time at this Boston cigar bar. Cohiba Robusto and Highland Park 12. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Too cold here in NY to smoke one of my own outside. Enjoyed one these Davidoff Yamasas at their 6th Ave store. Nice oaky and syrupy smoke so far. Would repeat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Montecristo No 2 and an Oban 14 year single malt. Parasol Up at Wynn Las Vegas. Still in debt to this forum for introducing me to my favorite BYO friendly cigar spot in Vegas. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Cohiba Siglo IV and a Balvenie 12. At Stogies in Montreal. Great place. Brought my own (from our host) which I recommend. They wanted $75 CAD for one from their humidor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Yes. The Oliva Melanio was by far the best of the 5 I posted. Amazing construction. Just look at that gorgeous ash. I will be picking up more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. I’ve been making an effort over the last few weeks to burn through my NC singles stash. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Since you're using the spa and tea services you could see if the concierge could get you in. If not, the Cigar Terrace at The Wellesley is a 15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi. I thought this could have made the list.
  13. Thanks to those who mentioned Parasol Up/Down at Wynn. Thread timing couldn't have been better as I was coming to to Vegas this week. I usually stay at Cosmopolitan which has nice balconies but this time I was staying at the Encore for business. Great place. Good people watching. Very cigar friendly and can bring you own, no cutting fee. Have some NCs for sale if needed. There were 2 other tables with cigar smokers so I didn't feel out of place. Whiskey prices not out of line for the area (Woodford and JW Black are $14 for example). Complementary nuts and chips Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. RyJ from Sunday afternoon. Cherry cream sundae. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. I actually think the 12% returns are quite good and probably beat the majority of other collectibles. It also handily beats the S&P 500 annualized return of 8-9%, including reinvested dividends, from 2003/2004 timeframe when the earliest boxes in the study were purchased. I think you might be spoiled by your 21% active strategy which is absurdly amazing if the track record is long enough. More information on that please! ?
