  1. Cohiba is a perfect cigar blend for me …I don’t understand the “just pure refinement, sweet and boring light” thing …..they are perfectly balanced ………no other cigar makes my mouth literally water and go mmmm damn ….often I don’t even need a drink when smoking a good cohiba Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Not a huge Montecristo fan but I have been loving all these Edmundos from a 2018 box Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Love oban too! …..I’ve never seen that release on the shelves unfortunately Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. What’s the story on the lagavulin ….love the 16 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I take it Covid didn’t have much of an effect on ya chibro….happy that you’re well brethren ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Dude you are unstoppable I love it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Sick period is a made up explanation for folks hoping a bad cigar will get better or that a good cigar that’s too old will come back to life again Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Pretty sure if I was in my death bed the last thing I would do is reach for a cigar lol but if I had to, I’d probably just go with a rg perla Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Costco does have some great steaks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Well Godspeed to all is about all I gotta say lol seems like some varying comfort levels here, and really, a genuine lack of understanding of the true health implications for consuming tobacco while sick with a serious virus…basically what everyone seems to be saying is oh screw it I feel fine I’ll smoke lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Not calling anyone out in particular, and in no way making judgments, but how/why are ppl smoking cigars while Covid positive? I haven’t had the virus so I’m not sure if I’d be able to, what my symptoms would be etc….I know it affects everyone differently, but on some level even if I was asymptomatic I’d be a little weary about puffing on a stoag…. Another thing is, you might have tested positive and few fine in the beginning, have a few cigars and drinks, but then a day or two later be completely inundated with the virus, and maybe your body isn’t liking the fact that you were just buzzing and smoking …a consideration? Idk Genuinely curious to hear from those that have had Covid and smoked or decided not to or couldn’t …again, no judgment….just interested to discuss Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Unfortunately they’ve been lackluster for me despite a good hit of hype around the forum ….been a bit of typical watered down monte flavors for me ….I’m sure I’m in the minority but that’s just my experience Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I repeatedly see unfavorable reviews for 2017 box codes ….and my own experience hasn’t been great either …….to be quite honest, even 2018 has been hit or miss ……cohiba and trini particularly weren’t very good in these years Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Probably slightly off topic, but what’s the best to sharpen Japanese steel? I have these … Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. That’s gotta be Javi back in action [emoji122] [emoji122] [emoji122] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Moderns booster 2 days ago……just about a year since my second shot I wasn’t quite half as wiped out as after the first shot ….pretty much same side effects tho …fatigue, soreness ……..wonder how much your reaction to the vaccines indicates your potential reaction to the actual virus Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Yea sounds like the OPs smoking technique isn’t enough to keep the wrapper ignited ….maybe rh is also a tad high Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Usually these original release rio seco are lights out but this one is just decent …no complaints, just missing some twang Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I hear ya! Best thing to do is smoke one …you’ll know right away Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Nice haul ….I wouldn’t worry about the serial numbers …I stopped checking those years ago after my first couple boxes ….if you are buying from a trusted vendor there should be no worries Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Different experience imo…..touch below meaning quality? Or flavor? San Juan seem like they need a little more time down …rio seco blend much more approachable near term …..San Juan has a more delicate flavor to me that comes off a bit muddled without a little bit of time down ….I would say quality is similar in terms of flavor experience all things being equal Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. I also agree with Javi and SC …. Those terms are inextricably linked to politics ….muddy territory Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. San Juan from an SGA NOV 15 box …..the vast majority of this box has been an utter disappointment, but of course, this last cigar of the box is an absolute gem ….I always thought the sj was a near term cigar, but perhaps the right box could do really well with some age.
