  1. Congrats DI. Enjoy the time. As an Italian myself if I know anything at all I know nonnas go crazy for their grandson. Should be a fantastic surprise.
  2. I think the common consensus is that Cuban tobacco isn’t aged prior to rolling it like non Cuban tobacco. Therefore it doesn’t really hit its perfect smoking age for a few years. Regarding the flavor the intensity and hot burn settles down a bit, the nuanced flavors come out more and the smoke becomes smoother on the aged cubans. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. But I thought socialism and Marxism were superior to capitalism?
  4. Prayers and condolences FOH family. Almost lost my father to covid last month. I know exactly how hard it is. Wishing you all the best.
  5. Smoking this BBF in my car with no drink or company. Had a day to myself to reflect on things as my bathroom is being renovated and I’m moving toward selling my house. Wife and kids are at the in-laws. Been a crazy month between work, holidays, and my fathers near death covid hospitalization that went in over a month. But for today he’s home and alive albeit still very weak and sick and I feel like just maybe things go well in 2021. On to the cigar. BBF is a great every day cigar. It doesn’t break the bank, it’s a solid hour smoke, it’s strong bodied and full of that classic bolivar flavo
  6. Got a relatively warm day over this holiday break and broke out a CoRo. Everyone knows they are outstanding. Honey flavor throughout, medium body, perfect construction. Buttery smooth. Exactly what a $15-$20 Cuban Cohiba experience should be. This cigar is a 95/100 when it is on, which into the first third of this one it is. The cigar didn’t transition all that much as it continued, but that’s not a bad thing. The honey faded away and the strength and spice mix increased as it smoked down, but it was a lovely experience. Honestly just happy to be able to smoke outside for
  7. Enjoyed this in my only place of peace and quiet with temperatures warm enough to smoke in here in the northeast, my car. It’s become my sanctuary of sorts to escape kids and working from home and all the madness that comes with it. I paired it with a Red Bull and smoked by myself alone with my thoughts. First Third - just a fantastic cigar right out of the gate. It’s medium bodied, classic Trinidad smoothness, and peanuts. The retrohale tastes delicious. Getting some spices mixed in there with the classic Cuban twang. I’ve had a few Cubans where the second I tried the stick I knew I nee
  8. Enjoying this with legendary cigar with a Stella Beer to celebrate the New Year. Right out of the gate it’s just stunning. Probably my favorite cigar overall if you take cost out of the equation. first third starts with that classic Cohiba honey note that to me seperates the great cohibas from the average one. The construction is top notch. Draw is flawless burn is even. second third is more of the same. Shocked the sweetness is still continuing. It typically is gone somewhere around the middle. The intensity is picking up. The smoke is just so smooth it’s almost buttery.
  9. So then why didn’t you post it 2 hours ago? And what exactly are you trying to say? The game wasn’t played at the time the nfl claimed and they for some reason aired it in Australia where they have less then 1% of their fan base first?
  10. The game has not been played yet but I can save you the suspense and tell you that the Vikings have won.
  11. So far for me the CoRo has been hit and miss. A few have been spectacular. A few have been average. Siglo III has been decent but not worth the money. The Esplendido and Siglo VI were truly special cigars and worth the money for an occasional treat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. My suspicion is the communist government controls the means of production which is why the supply never meets the demand. The foreign investors control what vitolas to roll, marketing, and prices to maximize profits. Leads to basically what you say above. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. What is the consensus best Tatuaje? Pete Johnson is a client of my firm and I have an open request to ask for whatever I want to him for free. Was gonna pick the one that made cigar affictionado top cigars list but I know that’s basically a pay to play scheme. Figured if we are on the brand it’s as good a time as any to ask.
