  1. He told me it was 8-10 months but ended up being a year and one week. Certainly worth the wait.
  2. I love Habano wrapped smokes. The Sumatra is good but yahhhh… thr broadleaf is excellent and I usually don’t like maduro sticks.
  3. I haven't had many bad cigars from Pete. Tat, L'at, Surrogates, etc. they're all good.. Albeit there are some i've had and did not enjoy, but for the most part I can pick one up in a b&m and know its going to be enjoyable.
  4. Stocking up on these SdPs anyway I can. Love these little flavor bombs. Both boxes are RAT-ENE-20 A couple more boxes landed today. First box of Punch DCs. Wish they still came in 50 cabs. Some more aged Perlas to stash away 😬 OER-JUL-20
  5. Smoked the one I pulled from the recent box pass! Thanks for the delicious stick. Paired well for a boat day. LOM-JUN-12 A few sticks from last weekend and this week. Stopped by my local b&m last week and to my surprise, they still had a box of T110 Sumatra’s they were holding with my name on it. Decided to smoke both Sumatra and Maduro b2b for a little test. They didn’t get any Habanos in unfortunately. I think I liked the maduro better (never happens for me) but could smoke the Sumatra more frequently. I think I need to go pickup a box of the broadleaf.. BRO-DIC-19 Choix Supreme Principe RAT-NOV-19 from RAT-NOV-20 Galanes Tight draw opened up in the second third. Flavors ok. Faint orange peel, sweet tobacco, hazelnut. Soft, floral like retro. They’re good but need lots of rest. BSM-DIC-20 Media Luna.
  6. Playing golf in the morning with a couple buddies. First time back playing since end of June when I developed a hematoma in my abdomen. Gotta take it nice and easy.... Sunday the lady and I will be going out on our buddies boat for some day boozin fun in the sun on the water. Not sure what sticks I'll enjoy, but I know it'll be several.
  7. Sounds like a nice weekend. Those Leaf by Oscar corojos are great. Enjoy Yellowstone! Sounds like a great trip and a much deserved getaway! Hope you brought a few nice smokes (even though I'm sure they don't allow smoking in national parks. Smokey the bear will come after you).
  8. LOL not quite, Kimster. I wish they were tuna though! Nom nomm. Sounds like you DID get stuck with the village idiot. Needless to day, he didn't get a 5-star Yelp rating 🤣
  9. Get em while the gettins good! We were lucky. This is the time of year where the bite is red hot. They’re migrating and spawning right in the inlet (a couple other areas also). The water was so clear you could see hundreds if not thousands in certain areas.
  10. My brother and I linked up with some nice snook. They’re no @Kaptain Karl slobs, but fun as hell to fight.
  11. 1000% check out Kirby's. Not lying when I say an excellent steakhouse with great seafood. The ability to sit there, smoke a cigar in a full bar and eat your meal with a stogie in your yap is a great feature! Safe travels and we expect to hear a full rundown when you get back. LOL.
  12. I second this. Only restaurant on this list I've been to but the food is always excellent and has an awesome atmosphere!
  13. LGR-ABR-19 Epi 1 thanks to @ChangBang GLE-ENE-20 Topes. Also thanks to @ChangBang
  14. A couple boxes just landed. LGR-DIC-18 Ammunition BLE-OCT-20 Media Luna
  15. Not sure where you're going in Houston, but I travel to The Woodlands once a year for work. There is an excellent steakhouse called Kirby's and attached to the bar area is a separate smoking area with full bar, TV's and the ability to order food to it. There is also a great cigar bar in The Woodlands called Blend (might be the Davidoff lounge you're referring to) which is a great place to enjoy a dram and a smoke.
  16. Smoke the stogie down close enough to the band where it will warm up on its own from the smoke/burn and then peel it off as @Tstew75 said… If that doesn’t work, you can always try warming up the overlapping area of the band where the glue is with your lighter. Just be careful not to overheat it or wrapper surrounding it. Running the flame over the band consistently/quickly enough should make the glue loosen up and easy to pull the band off without damaging the wrapper of the stick.
  17. From the last week or so.was great to see a live concert again this past weekend.
  18. I don’t have an issue with the cans because I live in a climate that has a constant high relative humidity year round. I can see how that would have been a little bit of an issue though. Regarding his production time, it seemed like one of the best options at the time for me. Beautiful piece, custom made to my specs, etc… He’s a one man shop working on almost a dozen custom units, if not more. I wanted the cabinet but good things come to those who wait. He’s a good dude. Thanks, Todd. Love the one I have. Hopefully you can order it soon if you haven’t already. He said he’s not building many more or the larger onesies
  19. A couple 24:24 boxes that arrived last week. Topes & Fonseca 1.
