  1. Got a red dot from a psp/hq mix. Intoxicating! Will never be happy with a box that smells like less now 😂
  2. I decanted an NC recently from its cello jacket. As I do with CCs, took a big whif of the cigar and it went right back in the cello! That'll learn me! Had a very strong musty earthy smell to it. Did not fancy smoking it after smelling that. I will have a go at it though it of curiosity. Maybe a few months has mellowed it out. We'll see!
  3. Yup. Correct, that's the Benelux regional distributor Cubacigar aged program. Like this nice box from lacasadeltobacco knokke.
  4. I can't do that. Have to let out some smoke, dilute it in my mouth then let it out slowly through the nose and mouth. Can't do the angry dragon thing!
  5. You mean .... I might have a chance in half an hour ...?
  6. We don't have Canada level of cold this side of the pond. But I certainly do hibernate. We are lucky enough to get the odd day into December and from March. But it's very hit and miss. Yesterday was 17 degrees in the sunshine. Today bit of snow, suns out and feels like 3 degrees. No cigar. I get a yearning to be able to take a couple of hours out outside more than get cantankerous for not being able to have a smoke. I don't do cold. Mediterranean blood. So thankfully get a few chances in December and from March. So hibernation season not long enough to get antsy 🙂 But do get dep
  7. Merry Christmas folks. Eat, drink, smoke, be merry or whatever you do!
  8. I wonder how long it takes for moisture content of a cigar to change as a result of varying temp and rh especially when they are in a closed box or tubes...
  9. Wow. Arrogance and insults don't sit well with me. Mind pm me the seller? Just so I can make sure he's struck off my list. Nice that you have a microscope. Show the vendor the 'crystals' of plume and let's see where he goes. I presume you've sent him this thread.
  10. Really enjoyed the Torreon this year. Only had a couple. And the jar is very cool and comes with the built in ash tray for your convenience and delectation sir.
  11. I'm confused. It's only the wrapper. You don't know what the filler and binder is saying. They are both PSP same crop. I know the wrapper affects taste somewhat. So surely it's all placebo beyond that! I prefer the look of the lighter wrapper. Caveat. I don't have much experience with RASS. But generally, how a cigar looks doesn't always translate to how good it is.
  12. Reminds me of a story from elsewhere of a box that had a coffee cup stain on the top! Apparently it got sent back to the distributor. Too right too! Could have been sold as singles, but it's a good example. Lord knows what examples come through we don't hear about ?
