  1. Despite all precautions taken, my two daughters tested positive today for BOTH Covid-19 and H1N1 flu. You heard right … we have both of the last worldwide viral pandemics in our house right now. This might be the last cigar I’ll taste for awhile … OLU OCT 14 Bolivar Tubos No. 1
  2. Took the ferry out to Catalina Island for a day in the sun and sand … and a Bolivar Tubo No. 1. It’s from 2014 or so; I can’t recall and the Mai Tai aren’t helping.
  3. From the Fourth of July … ‘98 Punch Churchill Tubo courtesy of @Habana Mike 🇺🇸
  4. There are several in Texas too. I had an opportunity to purchase a custom lounge trailer for about $40k. I should have jumped on it. Even without any business that’s a decent price for a personal indoor lounge for colder/hotter months. In the article, the guys converting the trailer into a lounge said they were only going to stock the humidor with “higher” quality cigars. In the photos, you see that consists of ACID and Ghurka. 😑
  5. I’m full of contradictions … I don’t get the CoRo, but I get the Siglo II. I don’t get the HU Mag 46, but I get the HU Mag 50. As for Monte 2, I don’t get any Montes. Not a single one. Garbage leather flavor and inconsistent. Give me a Dip 2 because while they may be inconsistent, but only slightly less so, they also don’t break the bank. BBF, on the other hand, is my favorite piramide of all time. Best Bolivar as far as I’m concerned too!
  6. My favorite things: cigars and guitars! Bolivar Corona Gigantes PUR DIC 15 courtesy of @JZBdano.
  7. I’m big fan of boozy and fruity Tiki drinks and this was my first attempt at a Zombie! Pairs great with a Bolivar Corona Extra (POS ABR 07) courtesy of @inter4alia too!
  8. 1996 RyJ “Prince of Wales” courtesy of @La_Tigre … Happy Cinco de Mayo!
  9. I really enjoyed it ... 11 years age doesn’t hurt! I heard the des Dieux was discontinued years ago, so my hopes for another one in the future are not high!
  10. HdM “Le Hoyo des Dieux,” LAG MAY 10, courtesy of @inter4alia. My first “des Dieux” and probably my last!
  11. Our Boston Terrier, Stella. She’s so smart, she knows when I grab a cigar from the humidor, my next stop is to grab a bone for her. I mean, she’ll hear my Aristocrat door open from across the house and will come running full-speed, jumping ottomans and sliding under chairs. She a really special dog. I can’t even imagine life without her.
  12. Trinidad Esmeralda courtesy of @jsummers157!
  13. I assumed for years they were gimmicks and therefore not any good; this post verified my assumption! Now if Habanos ever makes a line of NFL themed cigars, I’ll be the first sucker to bite ...
  14. My first Punch 48. I usually park my coin with high quality regular production rather than special releases like Regional, Limited Edition, and even LCDH exclusives. But! I sometimes make exceptions (HURRs) and Punch 48 might be another one. This one, courtesy of @jsummers157, is delightful.
