  1. No there are others of us out there. These 10 sticks could have gotten me a PSP 50 cab of Party Shorts or 25 of Lusis

    FOH: A Week In Pictures.

    Spent the weekend in Tulum checking out the venue and nearby hotels where I'm having my wedding ceremony later this year. Gorgeous weather. Picked up some singles from the LCDH Cancun. I believe the Boli EL 2009 is a fake (the band color, wording etc is all wrong, didn't notice until later) but the cigar itself at least seems like the real deal. Who knows. The rest look and smell great!
  3. Saw these in the LCDH Cancun yesterday. Honestly the wrappers and construction looked subpar to most of what they had in stock. I picked up a gorgeous RAG instead. I like the Conde Belicoso, but they had them at $400 and again the quality was not the same.
  4. Bumping this topic - need some advice What would you guys pick up? These are Singapore dollars so divide by 1.36 for USD

    I wish! Not a bad idea
  6. I will update this thread if I can score a box and arrange splits
  7. I'm open to splitting or if anyone wants a whole box, let me know. Not sure if I'll find them but I'll try.
  8. Headed to Peru next week. Should I pick up a box if I come across one?

    Wanted to share some snapshots from Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival this year. Pretty happy with the quality of the camera on my phone! Anyone wondering, the sets below are Rex Orange County, A$AP Rocky, Post Malone and Kids See Ghosts. Good luck to those in the comp!
  10. Cigar: Bolivar Royal Corona Drink Pair: Noah's Mill Bourbon. Going into this BRC so young, I knew it might be a rough go unless paired with an equally heavyweight drink. At 57.15% alc./vol. (114.3 proof) this bourbon fit the bill. First third: Right off the bat there is a bit of mongrel on the tongue, strong coffee and cake sweetness fight to come to the foreground. The complexity is muddled but it's there. Second Third: I take my first sip of bourbon. Incredible balance. An often fiery sip at first, the Noah's Mill has actually seemed to roll in smoothly after the Bolivar. I draw some smoke, and the real bout has begun. All the coffee flavor and sweetness fighting to show up has done so. The bourbon, normally on the sweet and syrupy side, has toned down and let it's cinnamon-like spices shine like a bouquet of fresh flowers. Wonderful. Final Third: The interplay of flavors continued until the last inch or so, when the cigar's youth began to show. I often find there is a loss of complexity when pairing with a strong drink and can be quite a one-dimensional experience. However, in this case it provided a peek at the potential of this young cigar. Not to mention it brought out subtleties not seen before in the bourbon itself. I give it an 89 as-is with plenty of room to grow.

    Completed a Tough Mudder Half (5 miles). Did not train at all so completely exhausted myself although glad I finished! Relaxed with a CoRo.

    Thank you Lisa and team!!! She's quickly becoming my favorite camera. Handles better than her size implies.

    It's an amazing city, with lots to see. Some areas have an old world Spanish Colonial feel, others are more modern chic and there are also very rural, culturally significant areas. I would definitely recommend going! Here's a short-list of places to pick from: Pyramids of the Sun and Moon (Teotihuacan) Chapultepec Castle (and Park) Angel of Independence Frida Khalo's House La Condesa/Polanco Historic Center Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlán Floating Gardens of Xochimilco I did not go to the race, but that would explain why the airport was so packed at 5am Saturday . We attended a wedding in more rural Texcoco at some 500 year-old hacienda. If you're up for some INSANE barbacoa, look for El Pica I in La Purificación just outside the city. Lastly, don't forget to pick up a box of Edmundo Dantes Conde Belicoso at the airport, they are phenomenal albiet pricey. Not sure how much longer they will last but there were still plenty of boxes in stock there. There a couple of LCDHs in town.
