  1. Had to work from home today, so took advantage of the nice weather. PLPC RAT FEB 20, BCJ MSU ENE 19, Party Short SOR DIC 19
  2. Dip 2 from a FOH prize pack early this year. Glad to have a sixer on the way.
  3. PLMC (date/code unknown). Like @Kaptain Karl, I’m getting coffee and cream, but no caramel, instead somewhat of an anise flavor on the retro. Paired with an espresso martini, a request from the Mrs. a little sweet for my liking, but the coffee flavors go well together.
  4. I thought the picture was Japanese mochi, and genuinely thought “looks good to me”…
  5. A humble Party Short, after finally having dinner with my folks and in laws for the first time in 20 months. Them getting to see their one year old grandson for the first time was really something.
  6. HU Sir Winston GRM FEB 21; Sancho Panza Belicosos ATE OCT 18 from our host.
  7. @Habana Mike I’m down for surgical intervention on some cigars!
  8. Crusty bread with filets of salted anchovies in oil, some sharp hard cheese and a glass of wine make for a fine mid day snack.
  9. Second box of Winnies, with a little age this time around.
  10. I did a facepalm when I checked my spreadsheet for the box code and notes you sent me. Got the landing dates for the Famosos and Unicos mixed up in my head, so totally spaced on the fact that it’s just arrived. Still smoking it down right now, getting notes of raisin/dried fruit and cacao/beany richness. Mild/medium in body, but the smoke is pretty rich - probably what people are referring to as the lushness of Famosos. Definitely will benefit from a proper rest, but pretty decent so far.
  11. LTO JUN 20 BSM JUN 20 courtesy of a trade with @ChangBang
  12. As above, D5 tends to have a fuller more intense profile, heavier leather and wood without becoming too spicy. Could just be the imagination making up for the 1/2” less of cigar, but overall I’d love the D5 blend (if it is different) in a D4 length.
  13. Punch Punch tonight. Good to see the Jays back home.
  14. Just make sure that your cooler is full so you have a critical mass that can maintain the humidity. Empty cooler will still need a lot of bovedas to maintain 62-65, but if it’s full will only require 1-2 as long as your cooler/container has a good seal.
  15. LeBron was filmed lying on his back FaceTiming his mom, smoking a cigar, and was later at the post game press conference smoking a cigar, so I’m guessing after a title match, they get a bit of a free pass… I’d agree for practical terms, A Cohiba Medio Siglo is a good choice for flash, smoke time and enjoyment. But let’s be real, if you’re a star player on a Major sports league winning team, handing out Espys or Siglo VI is chump change. Guess it depends on how big the team is, but a 50 cab of DCs would probably be appropriately flashy for the occasion. Maybe Lusis in honor of MJ
  16. It’s not plume…it’s not mold…it’s shrimpchips! Great review! They’re definitely good looking sticks. I’m waiting on giving mine a little more rest. Should I be so lucky as to get that MSG goodness of Shrimpchips, we shall see.
  17. Soooo, like six months gonna be good chief? 😁 Bond Roberts might see a partial box of LGC MdO4 (TUA MAR 21) available in 2025…
  18. Going to give these a bit of rest before I see what all the fuss is about.
  19. You could tell that guy was gonna win from the first shot of him. Batshit crazy, but one hell of an outdoorsman for sure.
  20. I saw one about 4 years ago in a New Orleans dive bar (it was grungy even by local standards). Not sure if it’s still the case as I haven’t been in a number of years, but in Japan cigarette vending machines used to be everywhere, often paired with an alcohol vending machine.
