Perlas (1/5)

  1. Zevia Root Beer. Zero calories, no artificial sweeteners, and no caffeine. https://www.zevia.com/products/ginger-root-beer They have other flavours, but their root beer is a great pairing.
  2. CORO, from our host. MAR MAR, I think I love you...
  3. @El Presidente Crikey, what a difference! Keep doing what you do. 🙏
  4. I suspect it's the cardboard packaging from these 3 packs that robbed the flavour from my 2015's. After this experience, I store everything either loose in the humidor or in another SLB.
  5. The RASSC age quite well too. I've been enjoying a '14 box that has been lights out good. Little flavour bombs.
  6. A 15 count cardboard pack of 2015 HdM Petit Robustos, coded EAG. Bland and earthy (dirt rather). Any flavour that was there has likely soaked into the cardboard, which smells great! Maybe I should roll that up and smoke it instead. 🤓
  7. If it wasn't for the beetle holes, I'd be all over these. 🙄🤣
  8. MOE OCT 14 Choix Supreme. Roasted nuts, soaked in honey: sublime.
  9. SOU-weet! I've received beautiful boxes of Cohiba, HU, Partagas and Trinidad all with this diverse code.
  10. Hi from Vancouver! I've been a member for the past year plus but have been remiss in posting an introduction. I'm 46 and fairly new to cigars, but thanks to FOH have quickly gotten up to speed (too quickly...my poor bank account). A guys trip to Portugal's wine regions a couple years back with a few mates who are avid cigar smokers peaked my interest in the hobby. Port, Madeira and cigars are an ideal pairing. Back in Canada, with less than stellar B&M selections I thought I needed to book a trip to Cuba to have access to the bounty, but then I found you guys! Now Cuba comes to my mailbox. I've got two young sons who copy everything I do, so cigar smoking has been mostly relegated to later in the evenings, 2-4 times per week. After a hectic day, I cherish the quiet ritual & relaxation. Some people meditate but this is my form of it! Cheers, yvr

  12. He has a good bit on cigars in this Tim Ferris podcast. Skip ahead to 58:00. https://content.production.cdn.art19.com/validation=1618635498,612e7a13-c6cb-56ce-a996-85ef16844ce8,iGZG-gQ6QfCR6PusyQRQdS1Xmp4/episodes/57237382-d25d-4608-a5b8-63afd50fccfd/c679a3455270942ce5d78065225c2437bfe48b75cc9d749b75639083d31b90c0ebb7936b0f6acb3410499cb5430de53493db81120778226f0196caa340a0f26f/The_Tim_Ferriss_Show_-_Bill_Burr.mp3
