  1. Was hoping to post this last week but I had trouble uploading the pictures! What a great weekend! Awesome company and brilliant cigars 2008 Cohiba Maduro Secretos: Thank you @Trevor2118 Excellent smoke. Still has its strength and flavour. 2005 Cohiba Corona Especiales: Thank you @Trevor2118 Wow. A stunning Corona. Great notes of Cohiba grassiness, mild coffee and nut. The retrohale also had a nice (slightly spicy) tingle. 2018 QdO No. 50: Thank you @JohnS One of my favourites in the QdO Range. Still needs more time down. Great construction. Nice brioche notes. 2008 QdO Panatelas: Thank you @baragh Super smooth and cool smoke. Great notes of shortbread with a slight orange zest to it. 2006 Cohiba Robusto: Thank you @Trevor2118 I have never had a CoRo this old and it was an amazing experience. Cohiba grass, coffee and cream. Slight 'butteriness' is there also. Wow!
  2. Glad you enjoyed it @Akela3rd! Great review You're right it is a creamy cigar. I wish I had more of them. An Excellent Cuaba EL! Every one I had also was constructed really well. Ash was flaky but never dropped. Apologies for the late reply by the way!
  3. Thanks Iain!!! It was a great couple of days. I wish it was longer! Thanks for visiting us. We will all miss you and hope to see you again! Thanks @JohnS for getting my Fez out in my absence Haha!! Great pics guys!
  4. Well. I'm sure that went out the window after the 6th bottle of wine Hahahaha Thanks guys for such a great night. It was fantastic!!!
  5. Also. This is where we are going for dinner at 1900.
  6. Hi guys we are here at the Cidery now. Reminder: Dinner booking is at 1900 at the Civic (Peppercorn).
  7. Hi guys, We have a large group and I managed to get a booking at Peppercorn at the Civic Hotel. Dinner is booked at 1900. Booking is under my name. Prior to dinner at about 1700 I will be at the Cidery Bar in World square having a little smoke with @ayepatz. If you're in the city early - meet up there prior to dinner. After dinner I recommend we all go to the Cidery Bar for smokes and drinks because the Cidery Bar is open Later than the smoking area in the Civic Hotel. Any questions - let me know! Luca
  8. Thanks @IanMcLean68 thinking of making a booking for 7pm at Din Tai Fung. Will confirm the reservation on this thread!
  9. I agree the JL n2 is a fantastic cigar. I have a similar box code and I do get those nice orange citrus notes and that "Cuban twang". Rob describes it as of you are smoking a Negroni which I totally agree! I have tried a 4 year old JLn2 from Rob at a FoH meet last year. It was fantastic. Let them age a bit longer if you can!
  10. Hi FoH! I hope you're all well. Just getting this notification up to advise everyone that we will be having a FoH meet up in Sydney CBD next week on Wednesday the 26th of June. Location: TBA - we are thinking of drinks and (some short) smokes prior to going somewhere for dinner, then we will most likely end up at The Cidery Bar for more drinks and smokes late into the night. We have a special guest that is flying in from the UK! @ayepatz we are all very excited to meet you! Please let me know if you are attending by posting in this thread so bookings can be made. @DirtyHarry and @IanMcLean68 you guys better be available this time!!! Or @Fuzz Will be after you!!! Cheers, Luca
  11. @Cayman17 oh my gosh. It was one of the most unique cigar experiences I have ever had. Thank you again @Fuzz for sharing one with me. @Cayman17 if you do find them - don't hesitate to buy one!!
  12. Thanks again John. They were bloody fantastic smokes!!!
  13. There's the pic of that glorious ash!
  14. Some great cigars over the past few weeks. A beautifully aged Punch Punch from my friend Will ( @baragh). A Ritz "Coco" Churchill. A very pleasant smoke. Smoothe sweetness on the retro hale. It had a very nice liquer taste on the palate. Similar to Contrieu like the Monte A that @JohnS And I smoked at @DirtyHarry s place. BUP NOV 17 Partagas Lusitania from my friend @Akela3rd. All I can say is "Oh my god! Where have these cigars been in my life!" My first Lusitania and I absolutely loved it. Thanks so much Neil! GOS AGO 18 Montecristo No.2 from @JohnS a wonderful smoke. I really enjoyed this lighter wrapper youthful cigar. It was full of intense nut and mild coffee flavours. Very interesting to try. My last MC N2 was generously given to me from @IanMcLean68 which was aged and had a darker wrapper. I found the darker wrapper MCN2 in opinion had more intense coffee and Mocha flavours (which I also love). Great to smoke and compare these two! MOL JUL 18 Cohiba Esplendidos from @JohnS Great cigar! Thank you so much John. I almost nubbed it! Thank you @Fuzz for this Trinidad Ingenious! My first one and it was excellent. Great construction and burn. I enjoyed the nuttiness and bready flavours it possessed. Very smooth too on the retro hale
