  1. +1 for the punch 48. I have been wanting to try those for awhile now.
  2. Today’s mail call came in strong with some hard to find sticks. The presentation on the bull is pretty solid when you open the box and the smell hits you.
  3. I have a Cojuno 2012 in my humidor some where, but I think it is a Capa Especial . I will have to dig it out! The one thing about Tatuaje is that you need a be a detective to figure out what cigar is what because the bands rarely tell you anything. Just the name and a different color scheme on a lot of the sticks.
  4. I had to pick up the newest installment of the Tatuaje Monster series just because I came across a box and figured why not. I am a Connecticut wrapper fan so 25 Dalias at $5 a stick was an easy decision.

  6. I am super excited for this box. It is PLA AGO 15 from 24:24. The size is just right and the wrappers are mottled. The paper on the top is starting to box press and has some oils stains starting to show. Not sure they are the best examples but the box is speaking to me.
  7. Enjoyed mediocrity in my picks last year so might as well go for another round.
  8. Great work! I love the look and lines of the new cabinets and appliances.
  9. I took the kids to Ghostbusters at the drive-in a few weeks ago and will still probably get this wrong. Watching legacy movies outside has been a ton of fun this summer, this week it was the Goonies and Empire Strikes Back before that. The only thing to make it better would be a cigar.
  10. It was a Partagás mail call day. A lusi 10 pack and box D4’s.
  11. Not a bad pick up. I like these a lot. Had a Serie V lancero last night and it was a touch harsh. Good but not great.
  12. Drip coffee and cream is my go to and I have not found a cigar it didn't work with. I must say the Nudies (both N1 and N3) have been wonderful with coffee.
  13. This was not the best example of this cigar. From the get go it had an odd floral taste mixed with strong pepper coming and going. The draw was tight and the cigar wanted to go out. To combat this the cigar required at least a double puff on most draws which, as you can guess made things get pretty hot. The burn was good only requiring a minor touch up or two but eventually the stick started tunneling. The signature peanut butter flavors never developed. There were hints in the first third but they never got going. Other examples I have smoked had that pb flavor which to me tastes exactly like a Chick-O-Stick or the inside of a Butterfinger instead of pure peanut butter. The cigar was a 70/100 but the sunset was a 10/10
  14. A couple of 24:24 pickups. The Coloniales are especially attractive. The 54’s are LTO ENE 20
  15. Nothing fancy but a nice box of Party Shorts arrived yesterday. I was expecting a LGR SEP 19 but received a UEB JUL 18 box instead. Not bad!!! These have an intriguing mint and cedar smell coming off of them. I have not picked that smell up before on a box of cigars but it is a pleasant smell.
  16. I really enjoy these. I got a little bit of a deal but Davidoff/Avo seem to take the Apple route and rarely allow retailers to offer much of a discount.
  17. 10 Count Siglo VI. I have been on the site since 2018 and the VI has been a rare sight on 24:24. They have been up quite often in 2020. I am happy to have snagged some.
  18. Same here. I have an oasis and never could get it to work flawlessly. The day I got my wineador I went with 60% heartfelt beads and set up a coolerdor with boveda and everything has been consistent since. Plus no power cord to manage or fan to keep clear.
  19. I am too cheap to toss it without giving it a shot first. Ha No burn restrictions yet. The fires usually ramp up in July and August around here unfortunately.
  20. First the food. Salmon Benedict has become a Mother’s Day tradition over the last few years and always turns out amazing. I smoked the salmon and overall it is easy to put together but takes some planning to get all on the plate hot. After breakfast I poured another cup of coffee and went to the deck to light up this coro. Why did I pick this to smoke? Honestly I could not stand to look at it anymore. I wanted an esplendido or something similarly sized but this cigar with the giant split was so ugly I had to put it out of its misery. I believe this came in the Christmas sampler and I must have dropped it at some point. As you can see the burn was uneven and the wrapper continued to flake the entire time. Those concerns aside this tasted wonderful. It was the best Cohiba I have had since my first Siglo VI. This coro was smooth hay with a touch of citrus at times. It was much better than the one in the blind tasting sampler. Based on this specimen I would love to add a box to my humidor. It was a great day, great food and great weather. I give the cigar a 94.
  21. What rh do you recommend for 62-64f? I watched your videos and set out for the 70F 60rh target but then moved my wineador to the basement which has been consistently cooler than planned.
  22. I have been going the other way, cigars excluded, and have been cleaning house. Whatever is taking up space is getting tossed, given away or sold on eBay.
