  1. I’ve lived in London my entire life, it’s a great city to visit as even after 32 years I feel like there’s always something new to do or see. I’ve smoked at the Corinthia a handful of times, although outside it’s very well covered with heaters, blankets and seats you really sink into so the cold wasn’t much of an issue. However I’d recommend Boisdales above anywhere you’ve mentioned. They have I think 4 venues across London, I’d suggest the one just by Victoria station. There’s a rooftop smoking terrace where you can take your own or buy there but the prices are steep as you’d probably gue
  2. Personally I’d sell and reinvest into as much regular production I could get with the proceeds. Depends on your stash though, if you’ve got more than you can see yourself smoking, there’s no need for more so smoke them unless you need the cash. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’m fortunate enough to travel to Europe a couple of times a year so I very rarely if at all purchase in the UK. Of course FoH has been great as well so very thankful for that. Some Swiss vendors aren’t currently shipping to the UK due to customs issues. Fortunately I only smoke a couple of times a week at most, less in the winter so it’s not an issue now travel is pretty much open to Europe again, just hoping there’s actually some stock left next time I manage to get there.

  4. I think the biggest problem for pricing is going to to be the apparently recent huge demand from the Asian market which is going to keep the demand very high. I think that consumption has gone up during Covid due to working from home or not at all if you were placed on Furlough in the UK coupled with having to stay in or at least not be able to travel meaning people have had more disposable income. Also a box of D4 in the UK is around £600-650 so about $800ish so $300 definitely won’t stop that market [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. The chances of me quitting are slim but I’ll definitely be smoking more PC’s and less Robustos and larger formats. It will be interesting to see if the prices come back to a pre Covid level once supply is back to 100% in the next 12-18 months. I’m probably being a bit too hopeful though tbh.

  6. Thanks so much! Great message to wake up to, I don’t think I’ve ever won a competition before [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. This is from one of the first boxes I ever bought a couple of years ago. When I first got into cigars I thought Robustos were the best place to start so I bought a box of RASS, D4, and Epi 2 which all seemed to be the ones which everyone always recommended. Of the 3 the Epi 2’s have been poor, the D4’s excellent and the RASS a bit of both. This is the first I’ve had since at least the spring but maybe not since autumn last year, I can’t quite remember. Nice dark wrapper, one large vein through the centre. Straight cut the top cap for a perfect draw, very slight resistance. Paired with a
  9. Glad your 2016 example was better than mine! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I am indeed, just on the SE London/Kent border. I think when the clocks go back next month it’s not as bad. Probably doing me a favour waking up to everything sold out for the past 6 months to be honest. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I don’t doubt you at all with that. Definitely going to pick up a 1/4 box but the time difference makes 24:24 difficult from the UK. Our clocks change at the end of next month so I think that makes it an hour earlier here so a bit easier. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Maybe Ken finally got his wish and rollers are marking their boxes [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. But saying that I’ve grabbed a couple of clearance boxes that have also been excellent, the RyJ Petit Royales on Clearnace are the ones that stick in my mind as being very good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
