  1. I'm right there with you...I consider it smooth as well.
  2. Sweet! I have $2, I'll take a bundle of the lanceros.๐Ÿ˜€
  3. If it doesn't have at least 2 bands it can't be all that should put at least 3 bands plus a band that wraps the whole cigar to ensure everyone knows it is good.๐Ÿ˜‚ By the way @El Presidente, do you have approximate price range so us budget restricted cats can start saving?๐Ÿ˜
  4. Nice review. Root beer note is interesting but I can see the malty stout flavor mellowing and morphing to a root beer type flavor over time.

    Bolivar Lonsdale 2004 BWRC

    I wish every marca had a lonsdale in current production.

    Bolivar Soberano EL 2018 (BWRC)

    Yeah, mine wasn't dry boxed or I think the wrapper would have burned better and probably would have upped the score. Either way, I believe a couple years will help develop some of the flavors more and smooth it out in the final 3rd.
  7. No box code as these were a part of competition winnings from our gracious host.๐Ÿ˜ This my first EL and these have been resting in my humidor @ 65% humidity for about 3 months. I've heard about the flame retardant wrappers that sometimes plague EL's and it seems to be the case here. Regardless of the burn, the first 3rd is earthy with notes of dark chocolate and forest floor. Second 3rd hasn't really changed much as I continue to struggle keeping her lit. Final 3rd and leather and coffee come in for a bit before the cigar's youth shows up. There are definitely some other flavors hiding in here if the wrapper would stay lit and the youth rested out. I imagine it will be fantastic in a couple years. I'll give it an 84 currently but with a lot of upside. Luckily I have 2 more.๐Ÿ˜ I was able to snap an obligatory photo at the start but forgot to snap more in between the constant relights and puffs.

    a Poker "Full House" of Cigars?

    This is where I am spending my money currently: 1-2 years 1. Connie 1 2. Fonseca no.1 3. SCDLH La Fuerza 3-5 years 1. Monte 1/2 2. Partagas 898 Kind of difficult to narrow it down in the 3 - 5 year category. I could keep going with RASS, BBF, HDM Epicure No.1, PSD 4, PLPC, etc...
  9. CD is much more practical to me. I know vinyl is supposed to have superior sound but my ears aren't that discerning to sacrifice convenience for it.
  10. My wedding nearly 7 years ago. I wasn't about to let a little "no smoking" sign ruin my wedding day.๐Ÿ˜
  11. The greater Phoenix area has a number of cigar lounges sprawled throughout the valley with both indoor and outdoor smoking. My back patio in north Phoenix is also very smoker friendly and hospitable.๐Ÿ˜ Phoenix has great golf courses, hiking and restaurant scene. There are a number of bars and restaurants that allow smoking on the patio.

    Stores Sharing Box Codes?

    It depends on the vendor. Some just don't bother with the hassle of keeping an inventory of box codes. I'm not even sure our hosts do either save for 24:24 boxes.
  13. Kiss: Diplomaticos Bushido...only because I might have a shot compared to a Cuban Davidoff or Dunhill Cabinetta. Kill: Just about anything Cohiba. The marca doesn't do it for me save for the Behike which was great(I think I had a 2010 52) but they are way over priced. If I have to be specific then Cohiba maduro genios. Marry: Tough call, either Partagas 898 or H. Upmann connie 1 or RASS or Punch Punch or BBF or Fonseca no. 1 or there are many I haven't tried yet. I suppose from what I know right now the Partagas 898 would keep me happiest long term.
  14. Apple is over priced, over hyped and I'm pretty sure their symbol is the mark of the beast.๐Ÿ˜ณ All of my points are backed by hard empirical evidence. Trust me! Besides, there is no better phones than Samsung's Galaxy series.
