  1. The markets are discrediting themselves by interfering in completely legitimate trades in order to seemingly try and benefit insiders. A free market would let it play out. Short selling is always a bet - a bet with a huge potential downside. Some people bet and lost and they should pay the price or reap the rewards as it happens. Certainly when all is said and done GME will leave many retail investors with losses as well. The stock is artificially overvalued and as short positions are closed at a loss the price will come down and hurt retail investors that hold onto their positions for too lon
  2. No curfew. Bars are closed. Restaurants are closed for indoor dining, but outdoor is ok. You’ll find some open on Rush Street downtown by the 4 Seasons. Up Down Cigar is the best cigar shop in the city - they have an outdoor lounge that is open. Good luck! Let me know if you have other questions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks [email protected] I am ordering some Kenco labels. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Anyone have a good solution for labeling where and when and box codes on your loose cigars that you would share with me? What do you use? Looking for something that won't damager wrappers that I can hand write on. Also something that won't impart a smell. Will probably bundle quarters in a ribbon or something and label the ribbon, rather than each individual cigar. But sometimes I only have one or two so it would be nice to label individually. My collection is getting large enough that its too hard to keep track mentally anymore. Thank you!
  5. Thanks Bijan - I have a box on the way from that listing too of the Monte 4's. I shouldn't have included that on the list. The 2's and the 5's I got were just quarters, thats what I need the codes for.
  6. Does anyone have the following box codes from October 9th, please? Monte 4 Monte 2 Monte 5 I now know to write them down when placing an order but didn't think to back then. Thank you.
  7. Here is what I am going to do. I’m going to pick out a few NC’s and freeze them. Then I’m going to give them some time to rest in the humidor and come back to it and compare it to one (same box) that wasn’t frozen. Test for myself if I can notice any difference. I wouldn’t want any beetles ruining my fun that’s for sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I know the merits of this, but I’m really curious how many of you actually do it? I have never frozen any cigar. Cuban or NC. Those that do it. Do you do it to select cigars? Do you wait until you have a problem? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. For this weeks review I decided to take another stab at a brand that almost always disappoints me - Cohiba. Grabbed a Silo II and headed outside in the Chicago wind and rain (had a tornado warning last night) to enjoy some unseasonably warm temperatures. I bought this cigar somewhere else (reputable) and do not have a box code. It was rested for a little under 60 days at 65%. I bought two in September and I thought the first one was pretty good, but disappointing for the price (that was after only resting for 10 days). Cigar is in good shape. Decent looking wrapper, colorado color bu
  11. Braving tornado warnings in Chicago outside to smoke a Siglo II on Chicago's last warm day. For Freestyle Review Week - enjoyed this Cohiba more than I normally do.
  12. Great Monte 2 here in Chicago in unseasonably warm weather. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This is interesting... what’s cold where you are? Trying to get a sense for if this is workable during long cold Chicago winters. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Right there with you. I ponied up and tried two. Was not impressed at all. Way overhyped. With Opus X they created the first Dominican Puro at the height of the cigar boom - perfect timing - and the hype train has carried them this far! I love AF - just not Opus X.
  16. That’s a very exact number Bijan. Something tells me you probably have a spreadsheet somewhere with all of them logged. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. That is a beautiful looking cigar from the foot to the color of the wrapper all the way to the cap. Bet it was a great smoke. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. 200-300 cigars right now and growing. I’m a regional vp of sales and market leader in Chicago for a employee benefits, retirement, and HR consulting firm. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Anyone that has cigars on hand that they are disappointed with... give it a try. May save them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Ill usually hand out an AF Hemingway Signature unless I know that person is a cigar smoker and would enjoy something fuller. If someone wants to try a cigar but is squeamish about a larger format they will get an AF Exquisito. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Well this is the expensive humidor I’ve ever owned. I’m not sure that it’s defective at all. Might just be par for the course - wood is always going to be an imperfect seal. I don’t necessarily think it’s bunk. What humidity do you normally actually achieve in your good humidor that you keep a 69% in? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Haha. Ill be on the lookout for your future 4 part reviews: 1. 1st third 2. 2nd third 3. Band 4. Nub
