  1. And the one box per client also helps not selling out as fast,
  2. I don’t think of this as a business decision. These are gov’t controlled actors who need “x” amount of dollars to survive. Long term strategy does not, in my opinion, weight on any thought process. Survival now is the only thought. Thinking is “ we need 100million dollars, we have 1000 cohiba cigars.” Do the math. I enjoy Cuban tobacco over anything else. Period. But if I pay 50$ for a smoke, can I really relax and enjoy it? What if it was a dog rocket? Feeling relaxed? Plugged? Am I relaxing now? Toss it and grab another?
  3. So many other great cigars. And Trinidad are my favorite by far. But I’m not going to be smoking a $20 Reyes. Or a $25 siglo ll. I get the ultra premium brands they want to build, but I smoke to enjoy the product, not the flashy label.
  4. It was a great season for fans. A lot of solid teams playing great hockey. Hopefully playoffs will continue that. Really enjoyed watching this year
  5. Great stick, it’s not a BBF or premium, but I really enjoy them and love the PC format
  6. Age what you like to smoke… I would put the classics that I know will still be in production in 20 years, bbf, D4,
  7. Mine have all been excellent construction, and very enjoyable flavor wise
  8. Would you show up to work if the “immigrants” made 10 times your wage? Recipe for disaster
  9. I mean the top 4 factories should be at the top of the list, they are the ones pumping out the pure volume of cigars that we are buying.
  10. I must say the Ukrainian president is doing a terrific job fighting for his people on the world stage. Really bringing out the TRUE colors of the leaders of the WEST and of NATO.
  11. Remember, if it’s top ranked on yelp, the line will be a mile also
  12. The good old if the cigar is bad now, give it a few years line. Classic 😁
  13. Rural California mountain town. 80% people at work have no thought of covid protocol. Company can’t enforce any rules as we are about 20% understaffed.
  14. I’ve been buying a whole cow every year the last 3 years. Went from $6.5/lb to $7.5/lb last year. Fully processed and packaged. Next year no price increase. Pasture grass fed only. Our local grocery from prime steaks is 30-40$ /lb.
  15. Interested to know if anyone has ever bought one? I mean, imagine a guy in a cigar lounge, I’m stateside and grab an opus x for $30-$50( pointing out the most expensive usually )And the guy next to me is smoking a $1000 Gurkha? I’d be laughing the entire time 😁
  16. That party lineup looks great 👍🏻 already pulled out the Connie 2 from the Christmas sampler… don’t know if I want to like it, cause if I do, I must buy a box😁
  17. Merry Christmas all!!! needed a quick smoke with a coffee to start the day, 1st third- wow this stick starts with a kick, full body and full flavor, biscotti without the chocolate, draw and construction are perfect, huge smoke output 2nd third more of the same, every puff is full of flavor final third- this stick just performs , pairing perfectly with coffee, body goes to medium and mellows out with some sweetness starting to come thru. Best short I can remember smoking. Glorious 93 points - surprisingly impressive
  18. I’m thinking I got a great box. 2014 great year, 7 years aged. Perfect storm.
  19. One of my favorite boxes, just a few left. 1st third- wow, soft light tobacco cream, just under medium. Flavorful and refined 2nd third- marshmallow and sweet cream to the forefront, great light toasted flavor final third- the same continued. Construction was flawless, draw perfect, great smoke output. 94 all day
  20. Fresh off a missed guess on the blind tasting of this cigar, thought I’d revisit it, as it was in the desktop humidor right next to cigar 1🙄, 1st third- draw is perfect, construction also, very sweet, light tobacco, tingle on the tongue 2nd third- not much transition, good twang to this one. Decided to pour a whiskey to pair final third- burn was perfect, paired nicely with the bourbon as it was a softer 93 proof. Not much excitement to this stick, but it performed perfectly!! 90 points
