  1. Oh wow! This is awesome! Thank you so much @MoeFOH Here I was all super sad for missing out on the Sampler that I had to drown my sorrows in some whiskey And a new cigar ROTT and now my luck has turned!
  2. Only ever had the 10yr and toasted barrel. Both of awesome bourbons if you can find them at MSRP. Caramel and chocolate combo was extremely enjoyable.
  3. This was ROTT from my OLH as part of the shutdown. Our hosts have been holding them for almost 2 years for me so I was excited to try them. I figured a little college football and whiskey would be the best way to enjoy this since I’m not able to do much after having surgery on my foot to remove a rock from a motorcycle accident a few years back. I decided to pair it with a Michters 10 yr bourbon that has been excellent with strong hints of oak and caramel. Cold Draw. Decent Draw, little tight but with chocolate and sweet leather. Initial-dark chocolate with slight peanut after taste notes. Medium bodied with creamy mouthfeel 1st Third - The chocolate Maduro is really coming on strong and pairs well with this bourbon. It’s almost like enjoying a candy bar. There is a slight ammonia taste on the aftertaste, most likely from the shock of transportation all the way to Utah. The draw is a little tight but nothing bad, just wish it was a little easier. The burn is great so far 2nd third - moving into the second, the ash just fell off. It’s a nice and bright grey that are a sign of a good CC. The chocolate flavor is coming on even more vibrant. This is an interesting change from most other CCs due to the lack of Maduro wrappers. The flavor is not as full as most NC but very smooth and silky. The peanut aftertaste has left and been replaced by the sweet leather I got at cold draw. The slight ammonia had also gone away which is nice. Final Third - it seems like the ash falls perfectly at each third. Not much transition, just a strengthening of the the chocolate yummyness. The leathery notes are also building towards the very end. The burn has been perfect which is surprising being ROTT. Final thoughts. Overall, I am happy with this purchase. Much better than the Partagas Maduros I have had before. The flavor is just over mid but not as powerful as most NC Maduro. I’d give it a 89 currently but only because of the slight ammonia I got early on. That will level out after a little time in the Humi. The Michters 10yr was a great pairing with the chocolate and caramel flavors melding in my mouth. Total smoke time was 45 mins
  4. I’m just north of Salt Lake City so not too far off.
  5. I find it interesting to see Fidel and Che making many lists. Is this because their faces are as “Cuban” as they come or because of everything they have done to allow the Cuban people to “prosper?” I ask cause other folks list Churchill because of the massive respect for the man of what he did for his life. Others are listing Bill Clinton because.....well you know lol. I’m just curious the reasoning for Che and Fidel.
  6. Check out Harbor Freight as well, they have the cheapest hard plastic cases around.
  7. Well I had smoked a BPC earlier that same day but both were very different. Oh well!
  8. Yeah I thought I had at least another 2 weeks!
  9. I just realized #3 was due the same day as #2 so I ran out and lit it up. I sent my guess in only 1/3 of the way in but now I am regretting the decision as I get into the half way point. More cedar and leather than at first which leads me to a completely different guess. Oh well, one thing I learned in school was never to change your guess if that’s even possible. Hell, at this point I’m just happy if Lisa counts my guess since it was due 2 days ago!!!
  10. Please report back your findings once it’s setup. I’m curious how effective this is.
  11. Well that’s horrible news, hopefully they aren’t the next on the chopping block like all the other LGCs before it.
  12. Any hope for LGC d’o 4s making an appearance in the future? Seems like forever since they have been on a 24:24
  13. Too bad that dont spend some of that leaf rolling 52s or 54s in more quantity
  14. Im really interested in this idea as well but feel there should be different plans. I thin 5 per shipment is fair due to shipping but perhaps have plans where you can either get monthly, every other month, and then quarterly. While I enjoy smoking, in a good month, I dont think I am able to break free to smoke 5 sticks so getting that many each month would begin piling up in my already packed winedor!!
  15. Woot Woot, 1-1! Will most likely be the only one I get right. For me, it reminded me of a box of HUPC I finished off earlier in the year.
