  1. On one trip to the island a few years ago I smoked more Coronas Major than anything else, they were my go-to early morning and post lunch cigar. Shame they are only sold in tubos though.
  2. Not sure if you are joking but Tether is a huge scam that will eventually pull of all crypto down with it.
  3. I have a modest collection of 600 cigars, about 3 years' supply based on my average consumption of 4 a week. I'm aiming for a collection of 1000-1200, which will test the limits of both my storage and SWMBO.
  4. Had my 1st shot with the Pfizer vaccine with the second due in early April. I'm in my 40s and not vulnerable but I often work in hospitals and doctors' surgeries so I was bumped up the list. Arm is a bit sore and I've felt a bit run down today but that may be due to the rum I had last night. Sadly it doesn't appear to have given me any superpowers.
  5. Looks like my first purchase of the year was a good one, can't wait for them to arrive!
  6. I've always been mystified why RyJ has at least 4 marevas in their lineup while Upmann, Diplo, JL etc have all had theirs discontinued. I've always thought that a Petit Corona defines a brand, and that every brand should have one.
  7. Spot-on review. Pretty much toasted tobacco with a hint of sweetness is how I'd describe them, but despite their lack of complexity I would always recommend them, you can't go wrong for the price.
  8. My one and only beetle outbreak was with a box brought back from Cuba. Had to freeze my entire collection as a precaution and anything I bring back in future will be frozen as soon as I return home. I don't think it's worth it for anything supplied by international distributors, HSA's export freezers seem to be doing their job.
  9. Must be a rule specific to Germany. My partner recently left her job as a flight attendant and they have always had the full allowance on every trip; i.e. 1 litre of spirits and either 200 cigarrettes or 50 cigars. Of course that was only available when she flew to non-EU destinations, usually Switzerland, Jersey, Turkey, North Africa etc.
  10. What a strange list, full of long discontinued vitolas and SKUs.
  11. Nat Sherman in Manhattan is closing soon, I wonder what's going to happen to the one standing outside.
  12. Does this mean I'll never get to spend the 20 CUCs I found in the pocket of my shorts after my last trip?
  13. I was recently gifted a sampler box of various NC Montecristo, Upmann and RyJ Toros. I started smoking them with the lowest of expectations but I've been pleasantly surprised. If I had to be critical they have been a little one-dimensional and the draw has been quite loose.
  14. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verdigris It'll be something that's reacted with the copper in the band.
