  1. Looks like it was on fire! hehehe 😁 Photos look great, and at what, roughly 5 1/2 years of rest. Nice choice. Chile really makes it happen for value in my opinion.
  2. What a treat, photos, and fair assessment, and a well said review. I like the look of the wrapper.
  3. Ok I may be a bit high at $300. Was attempting to take age, limited supply, etc into account. Is BHK54 on fire yet?!
  4. Ah yes one of the few that suddenly self extinguish - bum cigar is all, happens to everyone, better luck next time! Thank you for sharing the event, I'm living vicariously on this one
  5. NC?! You are going to win this competition. NC is almost cheating, they usually stay lit easier. Start with your physical location in the area - choose dimly lit over bright so you can see the wrapper burn line glowing all the way around. Start with a patient, even toasting to get it lit.

  9. Could be patched up! With enough cigar glue to supply HSA for the six months, who doesn't love a good jigsaw puzzle? Or slowly humidify, then apply a new wrapper right over the top?
  10. What have you found lately, to your enjoyment? I found/recently wandered into a video purporting a bar serving Angostura bitters shots. Disbelief. A little more reading. With caution, tried a small amount. Surprised, lots of clove. Waited a day or two. Tried more, surprised, I like it. What I've found lately is a new beverage/cigar pairing. Angostura bitters mixed with water in varying proportions, or red wine as an apertif and cigar, with an ice cube. Pairs well with cigars in my opinion. The Angostura full strength tastes of clove with multiple complexities after including celery a
  11. Covidsanity! Thank you for sharing. Sometimes enough is enough when faced with what is completely infuriating. At a bank no less where procedure and familiarity with documents is expected. Having a JL#2 to celebrate, coffee and hazelnut so far.
