  1. A few boxes of Upmann Gran Reserva Sir Winston Cosecha 2011 appeared in 24:24 one night last year. Sold out pretty fast as I recall, despite the price.
  2. Valid point. I don’t think I would be keen to learn that cigars I was thinking of buying had been pulled out, mixed with cigars from other other boxes, and stacked (possibly multiple times) for IG photos.

    Stalking the E2 in its natural habitat . . . Australia 🦘

    I leave mine in. I guess I’m in the minority. It doesn’t bother me at all.
  5. My own, of course. Folllow me on my travels and enjoy epicurean delights from Napa, Las Vegas, Chicago, Grand Cayman and my deck. @essential_vice There are tons of great cigar/watch/wine/whisky feeds. Two favorites that leap to mind are Rolex collector @d.rolexero and Hong Kong cigar collector Alex Wong @awong.this_is_life
  6. I write the box code on an address label I affix to the bottle of the wooden box. I do keep the cardboard separately but now I’m getting ready to trash them. The only reason to keep it is if you are going to resell, and I’m not going to do that.

    Travel case?

    Hopefully not 👍🏻

    Travel case?

    Gorgeous but I’d be afraid to leave that sitting around in a cigar bar. Despite my penchant for the finer things in life, I must confess that I prefer to use small, sturdy yet inexpensive cigar cases, as I would not care if I lost them and they fit in my pocket. I’ve been using a Xikar tube for singles and a Craftmen’s Bench 2-finger hard-sided carrying case for years.
  9. 1. Churchill - lots of spice, touch of wood, little bit of leather. A longer version of the Mag 46 2. Lonsdale - coffee, cake, sourdough, nuts. A cross between a PSD4 and a Trinidad Coloniales. 3. Corona Gorda - fruit, fruit and little bit of wood, a la the Punch Super Seleccion No. 1 They would succeed because they fill voids and who doesn’t want the Punch SS No. 1 back?

    FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Weathering the blizzard that never came to fruition with a delicious ARS NOV 17 Coloniales
  11. Prepping for snowmaggedon (5” to 8”) in Pennsylvania 🙄 Hoping I can sneak out for a cigar at some point 💨
  12. Beautiful “clearance” box of Connie A just arrived 👍🏻

    So, what are your recent acquisitions?

    I would like to drink more port in the meantime to learn more about it while these bottles mature. It’s funny how a few years of sampling and tastings can change your perspective and help you appreciate the “good stuff” (for lack of a better term) a lot more.

    So, what are your recent acquisitions?

    I have multiple bottles of each of these, plus four bottles of Cockburns 2016. I was planning on opening a bottle of something with my wife in 2030 and then waiting until 2040 to open a second bottle when my boys turn 21. Beyond that, I was going to try to lay the rest down as long as I can stand (maybe till I’m 65?).
