  1. Fundadores have been consistently good for me in the last year. I've found RAG boxes are especially good, starting from RAG DIC 17.
  2. Is that made in Germany? I think I have one and they are awesome cheap cutters. Otherwise, Colibri V-cut for me all day.
  3. Bit of a weird combination, but I decided to try a Montecristo No. 1 with a caramel milkshake from Shake Shack. I was banking on the sweetness to work well with the Montecristo. As expected, the Montecristo started woody with some hints of coco and quickly developed into more and more coco. For me, the Monte 1 is like a condensed Monte 2, more straight to the point, a little crisper on the flavors. Maybe one thing I like more about the Monte 1 than the 2 is that the increase in intensity is noticeable as you smoke the cigar. As the coco settles in, the wood goes away and you are left with intense chocolate flavors that change from slightly bitter (like a good dark chocolate or baking chocolate) to mildly sweet, and this repeats to the end. An excellent cigar. Now, the milkshake was a great addition in terms of complementing flavors. It helped sweeten the whole experience (of course) but also gave me something immediate to compare how sweet or chocolatey the smoke was. I expected it to make the smoke very bitter, but it actually brought those chocolate flavors out even more, I think because of the immediate contrast between caramel and chocolate made it easy to identify but it also helped build on it as the flavors are complementary. The one thing I did not like was the creaminess of the milkshake lacked that cleansing "palate reset" feeling that you get from other drinks, like scotch, or even sodas. This made the flavors a bit muddled at times. That, and there's something weird about smoking after sipping on a thick and creamy drink...
  4. I've tried almost all of these and probably enjoy most of them. Haven't had the penis or the Su Callu Sardu but everything else on that list beats vegemite for me.
  5. Quintero Tubulares Vegas Robaina Familiares (oh wait, it's already discontinued but it still haunts me)

    Bic Lighter Upgrade

    Or they just take your $38 cover with it. I see lighters like this as disposable/forgettable, so I would never spend more money on it other than just buying more of them.
  8. What an excellent size, can't wait to get these.
  9. Oh just you wait.....
  10. Mine used to do that too even though I used a spray bottle to rehydrate (I probably over did it). I got fed up, threw em out, got Bovedas and never looked back.
  11. On par with drunk drivers, I want some sort of test to ban TIRED drivers.
  12. I'd say 5% ish but I've also come across bad boxes (the 2011 Secretos from the 24:24 a while back are 10/10 plugged for me on the first box. Have been too scared to try the second box lol).
  13. Wow 30% fails...that's pretty horrendous but not that surprising. Would be really interesting to do a side by side of the 30% vs the 60% vs the 10% of any cigar! Makes you wonder if the fails you see in some shops are due to the shop not caring or due to the shop receiving terrible stock (or perhaps there's a causation here more so than a correlation)...
  14. I like the PSP cigars but in truth I have very low standards...😋
