  1. Congrats Max! That's awesome. Lots of BOTLS here around OH. I'm envious that you'll get to herf with them

    Monte Media Corona that I picked up in a trade. I honestly don't get it. It's roughly the size of a light switch. This is not a real cigar.

    MSU MAR 18 Partagas E2. They're way too fresh, but they're so damn good I can't keep my hands out of the box.

    We can all get bitter

    Interesting. I went through a period late last summer where, for two weeks, everything I smoked just tasted like an ashtray. No flavors at all. Now I wonder if an anti-inflammatory TH2 response might have been the culprit.
  8. DAMMIT! Someday, someday ... I'm gonna get the band off of a Hoyo without having to rip it to shreds. Does Tabacuba stock two different kinds of glue - one normal, and one nuclear-rated industrial grade?

  10. I think the tasting notes that have already been mentioned here are spot on. The big difference to me is that Epi 2s have been mostly garbage since 2015, but recent production Connie 1s have been incredibly good. Even young. If you want the best example of what each has to offer, stick with the Connie 1 for now.

  12. These are what I consider to be the current production basics of any well-stocked humidor, and are the boxes I always keep in stock. E2s are a recent addition to the list. 1. Punch DC 2.

    VRDA - UGO NOV 17?

    Would you mind posting a picture of the cigars? I'm curious how they compare to the great run of BMP 16s.
