  1. Gotta wonder if the up/down cigars in the box are Morse Code...
  2. You picked up quite a variety! I’d fire up the 1964 1st. They’re kinda the gateway to all Padron. None of those are going to disappoint (certainly not the 45s). If you age that brown label for 4-5 years, it’ll smoke as good as the 1964s. The rest are ready to go right out the box. And I’d argue against aging premium Padrons.
  3. I had about half a box of these what I’m guessing were 1950’s Belindas scored at a local country auction for $2! I slowly brought them back to life, and smoked and shared them over about a 5 year period. This is the last one I smoked last New Years and sadly the oldest in my humidor now is a 1999 5 pack of RyJ PCs.
  4. I love whiskey as much as I love cigars but I do not like pairing them. It’s usually palate overload or one overpowers the other. A cold Coke is usually my pairing go to.
  5. True on just wetting the head, but I’d probably just give it a lick before cutting anyhow. I’ve tried the water method a few times and even after a paper towel pat down I still encountered far more tunneling issues than normal.
  6. Agree with you on several points here. And extra age does not always mean better. Different yes, not always better. At these age statements, the barrels are nearly empty resulting in low yields. Which for the unseasoned drinker/buyer is supposedly a selling point. And at these price points, the juice is literally not worth the squeeze.
  7. Done the quick faucet rinse and quite honestly would have rather dealt with a split/crack than the burn issues I had from the water.
  8. I wish there was going to be spares. After evaporation of 5+ years of aging, I think I’m going to have a hard time getting any of the participants to give up a bottle though.
  9. Crab grass and lawnmower oil hand days are why we were given these.
  10. Concur with others on damage not beetles. Perfect round holes, usually in more than one stick per box, and if multiple holes in one stick, they’ll look like someone sprayed a tiny machine gun into it. Freeze em and you’ll be worry free anyhow.
  11. *Sorry for such a long post, but bourbon is a passion of mine Around 2ish years ago, a single barrel selecting club of which I’m a member was slated to pick a barrel of Buffalo Trace bourbon to be privately bottled. The day before the barrel pick, I made the 8 hour trek to my good friend and fellow club member Bill’s Kentucky home. That night after some stogies and several pours of bourbon we discussed how it sure would be nice to be able to bottle the barrel we would be selecting at cask strength instead of the 90 proof the labeling would require. Or better yet, getting the barre
