  1. In regards of CC's I think a robusto is allready overpriced. A average robusto costs around 14 euros in NL and no discounts (boxes for example) are allowed. Trinidad or Cohiba are around 25+ euros and are flying out of the shops. If I compare the basics on a cigar, so how it looks and is made CC's can't compete with a 5 to 7 euro Nicaragua robusto. Flavor wise a good CC robusto wins by a long shot, but that doesn't make the NC robustos bad. At the moment I would be perfectly happy with smoking CC PC's as my shorter smoke and for larger smokes pick a NC. So I regard a CC robusto as a expensive bottle of wine: sometimes there is a time to pull the cork on a expensive bottle and sometimes it's time to poor wine out of a cardboard box. honestly don't want to compare price, if I would do that I would stick to pipe smoking. 1 quality meerschaum pipe and a few tins of tobacco and your set.

  3. HUHC BRE OCT 19 call me crazy and maybe it's because of diner (Chinese pork, salty) but man is this sourdough bready. Never had this with a HUHC, last time I got spearmint. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  4. I lol'ed, but I think it's funnier if you can understand what is actually said. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  5. Thanks bro, nice dodge of the shots fired [emoji8]. And yes that's quite the full color prism of cigars, while he pulled the cigars from he refilled it from another box which had even more variances! Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  6. For cubans a GEL FEB 20 D4. I don't know how to describe it and maybe it's totally wrong for the overall perception on partagas being powerfull, but is was so smooth, no bite at all, transitions were very subtle but notable which makes it great to me. For NC I think every My Father or Don Pepin cigar I had is the benchmark for a good Nicaraguan cigar. This includes Tatuaje which are also produced at their factory and with their tobacco.

  7. I started cigars during covid and it made it definetly easier, although not a great lot has changed for me. Maybe even for the better, I got closer to my kids them being at home first for almost 2.5 months and after that for 7 weeks. Work has been busier than ever being "essential", but I feel sorry for the ones who have been hit harder than ever they could have experienced. Only thing is we like to travel and that has been a lot less. I doubt we would ever turn back to that kind of traveling. But I don't think I would have started cigars without covid. Sounds strange, but I used it like you to wind down and now it belongs to the pattern I need in life. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk

  9. Need no explaining. First time I go to this B&M and actually has some stock, although it isn't impressive seeing the color differences of the BCJ's (@Lrabold89 coming in 3.... 2.... 1.... [emoji13]). He just isn't as picky as the other shops which I've been buying with. Boli's out of stock for a looooooong time. He had some more aged stock which ppl tend not to buy.... Although I'm not sure how serious I would take that age when I don't know the circumstances the age was build on. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  10. +1 on the RASS/BRC/D4 idea. My first RASCC I knew I have picked a cc but if this would be a blind tasting without the band only the lumpy wrapper would say it's a cuban. Taste wise it was more of a NC to me. Taste is all different for everyone, but if he claims he's a medium NC smoker and picks Arturo Fuente as a brand this guy must have some pretty strong taste buds, especially with Opus X cigars.

  11. I think he is the on the better 5% of cigar reviewers in regard of content. Is he off, sometimes by a mile? Sure he is, as we all are sometimes. His smoking pace always has baffled me a bit, robustos under an hour, toros a bit more than an hour we're I smoke a PC or sometimes even a HC at that pace. But in general I think his content is very entertaining and I think he does 1 thing very well: don't make cigars more than they are, a bunch of rolled up leafs. No pretentious content.

  12. This. I store at 58 to 60 as I don't have a "aging" stash just yet. I've cigars at that rh for 6 months now. OK they might not reach another level but the cigars in that tupperdore won't even reach the goldilocks stage anyway. They are smoking the right way for me in that rh. Next purchases will be transfered to a 65-69 range untill I go through the smoking humidor the coming year. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  13. Wife's at work, kids at school, sun is out, there a few young birds (tits) flying around so time to enjoy! Not really a morning cigar but I sometimes like something bolder in the morning. Round 2 TRU OCT 19
  14. That's what I was thinking. Value of a cigar to me is more then just tobacco. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  15. BRE OCT 19 First time I had a minty sensation on this... Might be the pairing with a fizzy ice tea, but was quite remarkable. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk

  17. I checked this map, I might not have the faintest idea about the diet each state has, but chili in NE, really? I always thought a stadium or a team has a traditional food. In europe this is much less a thing. I had a girlfriend in Munich, went to a few Bayern Munchen games, it was just the traditional sausage and sauerkraut. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  18. Kettle beets, sweet potato and parsnip chips. Else my wife prefers oven baked and I like paprika (they show bell peppers, but it's actually smoked sweet paprika flavor). I'm quite surprised no one shows Pringle chips! Also Kettle salt and vinigar is a favorite here. Who on earth invented ketchup chips? chips with the McDonald's fries sauce, my kids love it, I'm in horror. But they don't like my veggie chips [emoji23] Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk

  20. Harvey, almost 11 year old creme silver tabby Coon male. We also had a pyschopatic tortoise Coon female but she didn't agree with our eldest, so she's living with my sister in law. Now we have more time on our hands were looking to get a English Cocker Spaniel, awesome dogs. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  21. Well the Opel my dad had was clearly German, piece of junk. Before that he drove Mitsubishi which he never had troubles. He's now on his 5th Toyota in 30 years and never had an issue with it. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  22. I'm still on vacay with wife and the 2 crazies. Hoping the weather turns for the better, this week has been wet. If next year permits we'll go 1200 to 1500 km to the south, France, Italy or Croatia. @Bijan happy bday to your son Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  23. I have only owned 2 cars in the 18 years I own a car and both were great, a Citroën Saxo (was this brand ever sold outside of Europe?) and I now drive a '11 Ford Focus which I bought new. Both treated me well, the Citroën had some work after a few years on the brakes, distribution belt and exhaust, the focus gets the distribution belt work right now. But further more no major breakdowns. My dad had a Opel (mainland europe Vauxhall) Kadett version 3 (also named Ka-death) of which they always said they allready had rust on them in the catalog and indeed it rusted very fast. My father in law had a Simca (French brand, doesn't exist anymore), he was a engineer for power plants. They were building a power plant near the sea, the salt in the air made his car from newish to a Flintstone car with extra holes for the feet to paddle along after the build was complete.

  24. I did that when I was a teenager, always liked it but lost interest. My eldest son is climbing in everything, if it's a pole he'll climb it, so I think we'll take him to a bouldering centre or something. Boy in the red trousers. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
  25. I don't watch news anymore, you just don't know what to believe anymore, it might be ignorant but I would like to make my own view of the world. Even some papers don't believe in true journalism anymore. I'm very invested in family life, almost everything in my free time is about my wife and kids. Now there both in school, I get a bit more time. I like to go camping about 7 or 8 times a year, I love skiing about 1 or 2 times a year (mostly one week or maybe a long weekend). I'll have to get a bit more active, so after holidays I'm back to the gym again. Verstuurd vanaf mijn VOG-L29 met Tapatalk
