    FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    As the multitasker I am, yesterday's schedule was filled with smoking, working, watching football, and drinking. At times all simultanuously. Had high hopes for this 1998 SS#1, unfortunately the first half was less than decent. Is offensive cardboard an official flavor? It did turn on a dime though and I'm glad I stuck with it. Second half showed glimpses of complex greatness, almost worth me puffing on it for 45 minutes to get there. Then tried the new Tat Monster. Actually not bad at all, I expected pepper to the face but not much on front, some balanced on the retro. Fantastic construction, might've picked up a few more if it wasn't for the price. Worth trying though, more interesting than any of Pete's recent releases imho. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    These Lunch Clubs.. Jeez. Best one out of the box so far. UAS ABR07. So much flavor in such a small (and relatively old) cigar. I have an FoH member to thank for these! On that note, I thank my Canadian friend @BellevilleMXZ for this Diplo which I had to celebrate the coming of fall in Arkansas. I owe you! Man does it have a lot of umph to it, perhaps more than I could handle but nonetheless. This will be a fantastic cigar in a couple of years. Kinda reminded me of the Cuban regional of the same marca from a few years but possibly the best construction I've seen in any Cuban cigar the past three years. A worthy exit (? if you believe Rob) of regionals from Canada, plenty of potential.

    '07 Monte #2. Not bad at all, nuttiness and lighter cocoa notes. Still can't help to wonder what these were five years ago. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Brilliant LGC MdO #3, OSU AGO02. Vibrant flavors after so long time, especially considering the small ring gauge. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Legendary split mystery cigar. Not certain by any means but I'm thinking Boli PC with quite a few years.. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    SUA EA00 on the ERdM Lonsdale. First inch muted then getting alive. Brilliant at times but its necessary to pay full attention. The QdO 50 had some significant burn issues and I'm not convinced of the flavors. So far, not a fan. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    ERdM Lunch Club UAS ABR07, such a fantastic cigar and such a pity it was discontinued. Second half of this was just spectacular, couldn't ask for anything else. Earth, honey almost caramel, hints of vanilla. La Punta TOS FEB17. Not bad at all this time. Raisin and hints of cinammon, subtle sweetness. No spice otherwise I would almost have compared it with a mild, aged Opus. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    San Juan TOS ENE16 for breakfast. I have really fallen in love with these cigars, just wish they were a little cheaper. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Can't fit into the pants that I'm supposed to wear at a friend's wedding later this month so. Breakfast today was a 1999 Du Prince and a piece of chocolate. No calories in cigars, right? No construction issues with these, beautiful old blend. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Hoyo San Juan TOS ENE16 and La Punta TOS FEB17. The San Juans are really doing it for me, fantastic construction and flavors are great. La Puntas may need some more rest. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Its been a while since I've posted in this thread, not because I've stopped smoking however. A (non-smoking) friend pulled out a desktop humidor filled with all kinds of fake Cohibas, sweet tipped NCs and random stuff that he'd been given. Among them all was one single tube of La Flor, a vitola I'd never seen before. The Predilectos. No idea on date but according to CCW, these were chopped in 02 so. Ended up being a great cigar, mild but still flavorsome (despite what I assume to be a rocky road up until last night). Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    No smoking In this car

    Beautiful. Now, if you did smoke in it, wouldn't it make you less likely of selling it later on? 😉 I do smoke in my car (mind you, its a beat up Dodge Dakota) but I still rather be at a full stop (and then I might as well be outside since heating and AC is busted in it). For some reason, I smoke way too fast while driving.
  14. Awesome. I'm leaving for the airport now, see y'all on the other side!
  15. I would throw in the new Petite Royales in the mix. I got a box from 24:24 (DIC17) that has been a complete banger. Very attractive from a price standpoint and the ones I've smoked have had very true RyJ DNA. On the three you mention: I do prefer the wide one, all day of the week.
