  1. #2 was decent for me. Nice wrapper with some sheen. Draw was tighter than I prefer. Needed a couple relights. First third was just a lot of mongrel. Tannic. Biting retro. On the finish I got some mild cocoa which was pleasant. Second third mellowed out a bit, some rye toast, and nice baking chocolate. A little twang with a hint of sweetness. No significant changes into the last third before I put it out. Pretty strong at the end.
  2. Wow, well I was way off. I love BPC, but I never would have picked it for this cigar. @El Presidente Do we know how old it was? I have some 2014 BPC that are still a ton stronger than this one was. I suppose if this cigar was 10 years old, that might make me feel a little better lol.
  3. I stopped using refrigeration years ago because it was just too inconsistent for my taste. Since then I store at room temp, which will occasionally touch mid-high 70's in the summer, and I can't tell any difference at all. If anything, my RH levels are rock solid now, which I think makes them smoke better.
  4. When I think meaty, I think one thing: BBF, and BRC. Ok, that's two things.
  5. I smoked #1 yesterday, and thought it was quite good, a variety of flavors and all well balanced, smooth to the end, if not quite "classy". Never more than medium bodied. Pre-light and cold draw was totally anonymous, generic cedar. The burn was a bit wonky at times, required some touch ups, nothing out of the ordinary. In the first third I tasted just about every marca I could think of at one point or another 😆, and was really thinking I haven't the slightest clue what it could be. But things settled in after that, and overall I got light coffee, raw leather/suede, some tannic oa
  6. I'm in, really looking forward to this, despite my abysmal prior performances 😂
  7. Exquisito and coffee on a Saturday morning 😊 Loving the Dupont, thanks @ZigZauer
  8. ASR JUN 18. This box is officially singing. One of the best tasting and well behaved habanos I’ve had in ages. If there is any cigar that makes me want to stack cabs upon cabs, it is BBF.
  9. Chris Ward makes a few nice quartz models. I had a couple of their automatics and quite liked them for the money. Tag Heuer also
  10. Hard to argue with the Tudor recommendations. Ever looked at Sinn? German manufacturer, has always been on my radar but I've never pulled the trigger. They have some very nice blue dials, should come in under $3k. Watchbuys.com is the only place to get them as far as I know. Often sold out, but restock pretty regularly.
  11. My beloved weekend morning Reyes. APU DIC 14. Sad to be nearing the end of this box.
  12. Montecarlo LGR JUL 17 and coffee on a Friday morning. Gotta love working from home. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend FOH.
  13. A lovely little party short OPG OCT 14, from the PCC aged program, on a beautiful sunny Saturday morning. It's been a while, friends. Good to be back 😊
