    Going through the grades

    The fonseca 1, considering its price, is a fantastic smoke. Cut one and let it sit for a while. Take a test draw every once in a while. You'd be surprised how many will magically draw that you thought for sure were solid as a rock. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  2. So, what is the cost of a single in USD? how much is a full 50 cab? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Going through the grades

    I keep hearing, as el prez just responded, that storing at lower humidity helps with this issue. I envy the people that "can count on one hand" how many plugged cigars they've had in their 50+ years of smoking cigars. I've had entire boxes, note the plural there, that were solid as tent pegs, in less than 2 years in to Cubans. Ive had clearance/seconds smoke better than PSP. It's all a crap shoot, some people get really lucky, then there's people like you and me Haha. I do find a lot of them come around. Cut the cap and store them in a dry environment. Check the draw regularly and see if it comes around. Some do, some dont. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Post your Pet.......

    When I was really little my aunt gave us a potbelly pig. I dont remember much, but my mom said it was a nightmare. He would steal any food or snacks we had by tackling us to the ground. My parents gave him away to a farm that kept him as an outdoor pet, and had no intention of ever eating him etc... Some years went by and we found out he had grown to over 500 pounds and had 4 inch tusks. I have heard that they make great pets, and many are smarter than your average dog.

    FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Custom 109 from the legendary split. Wow!!! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  6. Not really a purchase, but these came today as part of a trade. Wow.... Thank you, you know who you are [emoji1786] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  7. It's a bell curve of quality. There's always trash and always pristine beauties. Some codes are known to have better quality, but duds are always present. If it hasn't been looked at before purchasing, it's a gamble. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  8. Rob has sources that inspect all cigars leaving Cuba. I'm sure he can tell you what the quality is like around the globe. [emoji1787][emoji1787] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    50 cabs

    It was. Hdm DC have been up, but not since a little after new years iirc. They are high on my list too, but I always blow my budget just before they pop up. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Need a Taco

    That's odd, the few I've sampled have been some of the absolute best cigars I've ever had. Like smoking a piece red velvet cake. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Espresso maker

    I really like the espresso blends from stumptown, counter culture, koffeekult and black rifle.
  12. I'm also a cigar newbie. First was about 2 years ago. Padron family reserve. I wanted to see if a $15 cigar was actually worth the extra price, it was... Shortly after spending tons of money on NC, I found this community. First purchases here were bolivar royal coronas and ryj short churchill's. My current go to sticks are psd4 and siglo 1.

    Espresso maker

    The slayer or the la marzocco gs3 are my dream machines. Not sure I'll ever be able to drop 7k on a coffee maker, but maybe one day haha. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  14. Look on craigslist regularly. I found this for $150. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Espresso maker

    There's a power button and a lever that activates the brew. Then knobs that turn for steam or hot water. Super simple, more simple than most coffee machines. Getting the most out of it is a different story haha Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
