  1. SC la punta box date unknown. Enjoying with some Venezuelan rum and some dark (90% cacao) chocolate.
  2. This is a very complex issue that has existed for well over 100 years. To understand Cuba-America relations we must understand their history. The current embargo is a product of the Cold War and should have ended with the collapse of the Eastern Bloc. Netflix (Canada) has a great documentary mini-series called the Cuba Libre Story that covers the history of Cuba up to the present day. I recommend watching it as it provides plenty of insight regarding Cuban history.
  3. Smoking this HdM epi 2 (NOV 16) as I type. Paired with Havana Club Selección de Maestros and some pound cake on the side. Honeyed graham cracker is the dominant note surrounded by silky cream and a light indeterminate wood. Not sure if anyone has experienced this from HdM but I always get a slight citrus taste, perhaps orange zest if I had to name it on the nose of the epi 2.
  4. Decided on a NC for this evenings smoke. I haven’t been a huge fan of Alec Bradley in the past and this is the first time I’ve tried a Tempus Natural. In my opinion this is a very nice cigar. Complex with a nice blend of caramelized brown sugar and coffee notes. Very smooth!
  5. I have the same opinion of cryptocurrency as I do (did) of Enron. No way!
  6. BPC ~ Jan. 2015 paired with some Pacto Navío
  7. Silky smooth and oily wrappers. Love the colour!
  8. I always enjoy a good RASS. Don’t really care for the Cohiba Siglo I’s I had recently, then again I’m not a huge fan of the Cohiba taste profile.
  9. This is a sad day for the small business owners who will undoubtedly be put out of business because of this legislation. I’ve occasionally purchased cigars from Canadian stores despite the outrageous taxes. Going forward I will no longer be purchasing cigars in Canada as I do not wish to aid and abet erroneous plain-packaging (or taxation) schemes. Following the government logic here plain-packaging laws should have already been applied to sugary, fatty and artificial foods (many of which directly market towards children with their current packaging), alcoholic beverages, sugary drinks, fast food, household chemicals, cellphones, cars, granny’s pie and every other consumer good that’s ever been accused of being bad for us. Hell, I wouldn’t mind plain-packaging being applied to all the election campaign signs these lying skin sacks will be putting up in the fall. At least I know that kind of plain-packaging will be good for my health 😂.
  10. Just got back from Cuba. I’ll post more later with box codes and open boxes.
  11. I'm going to put these down for awhile, glad to (finally) have one of the newer releases from this marca!
  12. The only "Axis of Evil" I see here is the mop that man calls a moustache. Someone ought to give that thing a trim 😂.
  13. My alcoholic beverage of choice when it comes to pairing with cigars is rum. Here are some of my favourites: Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva (sweeter) El Dorado 12 year Ron Zacapa 23 Plantation 20th Anniversary XO Havana Club Selección de Maestros for fuller bodied cigars (I could only find this in Cuba) Baron Samedi spiced rum - more on the budget side; as a stand-alone sipped straight its pretty decent, pair it with a cigar however and it just comes alive.
