  1. A few years ago I bought a box of LFdC from 2002. They are still the only LFdC I have ever smoked, so that might tell you what I thought of them. About 1/3 were so plugged I had to throw them away. The rest were okay ... an interesting fruitcake flavor profile with an emphasis on the candied fruit. I gifted half the box and never looked back.
  2. Tesla’s are very popular in my area. A stroll through the neighborhood is like the world’s largest Tesla showroom. Lately, however, a swarm of Tesla service vehicles have started to appear with more frequency. Now I know why!
  3. Love to see the spirit of entrepreneurism alive and well!
  4. Wow! This is exactly what I was looking for ... I hadn’t considered places like Colombia, Morocco, Vietnam, Laos. Lots of new destinations to research!
  5. I probably did leave it a little too open-ended! I wanted to emphasize how open we are to traveling anywhere! But, to your point, we do have interests however my wife and I couldn’t be more different. She’s in her happy place wherever there’s a warm, tropical climate with a beach. She loves a quiet spot on the beach where she can read her customary three books over the course of a week. As for me, I like an active vacation in or near a city. I like hiking, exploring, visiting museums and art exhibits. The one thing we we have in common is we like to dine out wherever the locals eat and t
  6. I’m a year away from my 40th birthday and planning a big getaway to celebrate. The problem I’m having is coming up with ideas. I’m open to any and all suggestions ... cost is not a factor. Well, put it this way, cost is not the top consideration! The only requirement is the destination has to be warm in March. A destination with least a little history or culture would be a nice bonus. So, fellow FOHs, any ideas?
  7. Have you tried the Centrofinos? For me, it’s all marzipan ... almond, honey, a touch of sugar, and toast. The first time I tried one, I was shocked because the first three vitolas in the new blend were all vegetal like you said. I can’t explain it but the Centrofinos is a unique blend itself. If you haven’t, it’s definitely worth a try the next time you have a chance!
  8. Vegueros Centrofinos TLE JUN 20 Some people like ‘em, some people don’t. As for me, I love ‘em! No matter how many I buy, I always wish I bought more.
  9. Your quest has ended: Partagas Short. Buy a 50 cab of Party Shorts and thank me later!
  10. Sub-freezing temperatures and getting snowed-in is why I love a good PC ... just long enough to enjoy before frostbite sets in!
  11. Revisiting an old friend that I haven’t kept in my regular rotation in a long time, courtesy of @BigGuns. I don’t know why I stopped buying RASS but this one reminds me of the good times I’ve had smoking these. The beer isn’t bad either!
  12. HdM DC is my all-time favorite smoke in the 7+ inch category. Medium roast espresso with streamed cream, and a vanilla bean cake donut (the kind without glaze). I love everything about it down to the classic single HdM band. It goes with every kind of meal or mood ... all I need is the time to fully enjoy it. I just wish I could jump fast enough to grab a 50 cab when they show up on 24:24!
