  1. Is it telling that the 50 and 54 are still available from yesterday's 24:24?
  2. Correct. Which is completely different from: "the Cubans have been freezing all exports. They do not, however, freeze anything that is sold on the island" claim which is repeated without any evidence.
  3. The claim is: "Since 2005 all Habanos have been frozen at the warehouse in Havana before the are release to the market," which includes domestic sales in Cuba.
  4. I wish there was a some secret sauce that made it good. I tried a 54 over the winter and did not have any urge to buy anymore. I bought a 10 count box of 50s before trying one because I heard good things, but after trying one I really am not looking to try another one for a long time, if ever.
  5. I just passed through Vegas and stopped by Casa Fuente and I was a little disappointed. They didn't really have much on the shelves.
  6. Another long smoke for on a weekend evening. It drew well and the burn line was straight, but the cigar did require a couple relights in the second and last third. Flavor notes included pepper, wood and cocoa. Not a bad cigar, but not something I would buy again. Total Time: 1 hour 56 minutes. 2/5.
  7. The robusto is my go to size. I lit this one up in the morning with some coffee. The draw on Padrons is a little too loose or my liking but they always burn without issue. Flavor notes included some bready sweetness, wood and spice. It was a good way to start the morning. Total Time: 1 hour 27 minutes 2/5
  8. The time factor of a cigar is pretty important when it comes to picking cigar. If I have the time I'll smoke something longer, which usually corresponds with the weekend. The Wizard is a 6x56 toro. The burn and draw were great. The flavors included come wood and roasted nuts throughout. Definitely a longer smoke that I wouldn't have smoked during the week. Total Time: 1 hour 43 minutes 2/5
  9. Hopefully not too obscene, but it's one of the funniest post fight interview comments I've heard in a while:
  10. Another PC received in an El Pres Sampler in early January 2020. The draw, burn and smoke production were all perfect. It may have to do with the fact that it's under 90F today. I paired the cigar with some Ka'u coffee and though they seemed to go well together, but aside from a subtle bready sweetness, nothing really jumped out at me flavor-wise. Overall not a bad morning cigar to enjoy sitting outside and sipping coffee. Total Time: 44 minutes 33 seconds 2/5
  11. I received this cigar as part of an El Pres Prize Sampler in early January 2020, so I am assuming it's from 2019. The pre-light draw was fairly tight so I utilized the perfecdraw tool, which improved the draw, but it wasn't ideal. Even with a tight draw, it had a near perfect burn and good smoke production. I didn't pick up any specific tasting notes, but it didn't have any unpleasant flavors or rough notes to it. Total Time: 1 hour and 6 minutes 2/5
