Campanas (3/5)

  1. Tried my first at a recent whisky & cigar tasting. From a 2019 box. The stick that was handed to me was quite soft at the foot down to about half way. And on inspection the loose filling was visible at the foot. So swapped it out for another. Much more firm and consistent. Smoked lovely. Nice toasty slightly sweet. Lasted me 2 hrs. At 45£ a stick here before the price hikes, I would expect every one to be perfect or replaced!
  2. You get it all in Soho.... "Soho is known for its lively and, at times, risqué vibes. It's also been at the centre of London's LGBT+ community for decades with buzzing gay and lesbian bars around Old Compton Street, plus a hotbed of fashion and music – most notably in Carnaby St., which led the way in the Swinging Sixties." There must be a reason Soho was chosen 🤣
  3. Nice mellow aromatic Uber smooth start. Slightly sweet and easy on the retrohale. Really pleasant. Consistent down to the last third when a little harshness and bitterness appeared and built up a bit toward the end. Sorry my palette doesn't do flavor comparisons! A light finish. With a mild creamy, oilyness in the mouth.
  4. Can't offer you fancy pants locations like that! How about the local deli or cafe? 😁
  5. Treat him to one! Smoke one with him! 🤣
  6. Won't be anything to post on this thread in a few weeks...
  7. Perhaps is 5% of the people by 50% of the premiums, the other 95% buy 50% of premiums. And now those 95% are buying regular production, which is bread and butter, so profits go up and HSA control the supply of premiums accordingly. Premiums are exclusive and given to further the exclusiveness. Like the watch market etc. HSA profits go up, exclusives remain in the stratosphere. caveat: I know nothing about these flashy markets The only 'flashy' things I have are a few cigars and even then not the flashy ones!!! lol!
  8. The premium & limited cigars are being promoted to exclusive status - the sales on the volume and regular cigars they probably expect to increase as a result. Which as mentioned above is the bread and butter most of the HSA money comes from. Standard model no?
  9. I get you. When that happens..... Well ... Then we'll all be nudies! Erm...... I mean smoking nudies!
  10. Dude! Where you been!? Chinese dudes be in UK shops buying up everything!
