  1. Which more common stick is closest in flavor profile to the Punch DC? What are the dominant flavors?
  2. Thanks for the comments. I'm specifically looking at late 2018 UGO sticks... Any experience?
  3. Are recent versions of the Punch DC any good? I'm honestly not a fan of Punch Punch, but I'm wondering if the DC is something different... Thoughts?
  4. I enjoy most Bolivar cigars, but the BRC doesn't really taste like any of the others. The flavors seem muddled and lack definition. I've tried young, old, dry, oily... they just don't appeal to me. I've had more luck with JL2, but they can also be hit and miss.
  5. We had this oven built in 2012. We use it a few times per year, and the pizzas are incredible! I wish we made more time to use it...
  6. I don't think it's nonsense, but I do think it's virtually impossible for someone with a conventional gender identity to understand what it is to be non-binary or transgender. I know two parents with transgender children. In both cases, their children were born biologically male, but identified as girls from a very early age - before the age of 2. Despite growing acceptance, these kids face a difficult road ahead. I'm thankful that the parents are doing everything in their power to support their children as they are.
  7. I smoked through three different sticks last night, and I'm frankly shocked by how much the binder changes the flavor. The Dominican binder (olor?) is wonderful, but overpowering with it's bright, citrusy incense. Nicaraguan binder instantly made the cigar taste like a Nicaraguan puro with a very distincive earthy spice character. Good, but not what I was intending. The Sumatra binder may be the best so far because the it adds a subtle tanginess while still letting the filler shine. Tonight, I will compare the Dominican Vuelta Abajo to the Sumatra...
  8. Doing some blend testing - 2 sticks each with 5 different binders...
  9. Ok, so I took a stab at assembling my "long term" storage vessel. In the process, I found a few other boxes beyond those I listed above. Here are the contents: Bolivar: Coronas Junior, Petit Coronas, Coronas Gigantes, Soberano, Libertador Cohiba: Robustos, Lanceros, Magicos, Medio Siglo, Siglo II, Siglo V Montecristo: No. 1, No. 2, No. 4, Dantes EL Partagas: P2, E2 PL: Petit Coronas RyJ: Churchill Upmann: Petit Coronas, Mag 46, Mag 50 Vegas Robaina: Unicos Are there any that clearly don't belong? Thanks!
  10. No comments yet, but the neighbors all have their own quirks. The guy whose property shares the longest border with ours is frequently out between 1am and 3am scanning his yard with a flashlight. I haven't the foggiest idea what he is up to, but the light is bright enough to be seen flashing across the screen on our bedroom window...
  11. Like many of you busy folks, I find that my time to enjoy cigars falls late at night when the rest of the family is asleep. With summer upon us, I also find that the yard needs daily watering. So, these activities must often occur in parallel. However, I've been frustrated by having to carry around my cigar and flashlight in one hand while hauling the hose around with the other. Today, I found the perfect solution to my dilemma...🤩
  12. Thanks for continued comments! Are there a particular characteristics that make a cigar "better" for aging?
  13. Received mine yesterday. Everything looks great, and very well packaged!
  14. Thanks for the comments. Two other boxes came to mind as other potential candidates... Trinidad Coloniales and Cohiba Magicos. Are either of them built for the long haul?
