  1. Last bottle of wine under $40 that made you go "bloody hell" "bloody hell" = stop, prop, look at the glass and go "wow!". Under $40 is chosen in order to provide some value
  2. Correct. My error. All sweet!
  3. Minuto/Petit Corona/Corona Review Weekend As requested we will run a series of vitola reviews over the weekends. Today we will start with Minuto, Petit Coronas and Coronas.

  4. sooooo annoying Perla/Minuto/Half Corona ......all good. Corona Gorda is lumped in with a few others in two weeks. I now remember why I stopped doing it this way
  5. 4 cigar day yesterday with the arrival of Rob (freefallguy) Upmann Magnum 48 Por Larranaga Robusto Cohiba Siglo IV Saint Luis Rey Regio All 08 , actually the Regio could be 07 (forgot to look) Not a bad cigar amongst the bunch but I have to say the SLR Regio beat the rest with a fresh fruit/ginger/toasted tobacco/bread profile which was enticing and exactly what was needed for a late afternoon cigar. The Saint Luis Rey Regio is a gem of a cigar. I know I am speaking to many of the converted here but for anyone who has not tried them ever or for some time, give them some serious consideration.

    Milkshaking British Politicians

    We have some already Fascism is a form of radical, right-wing, authoritarian ultranationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy, While you have an unimpeded press, you are fairly safe.
  7. That wraps up my week in the warehouse. Back next week for a few days before heading overseas the week after. The best of today

    You address the issues utilising the tools/institutions your society has provided. Debate, legal, protest, media. The minute you start throwing dairy/ poultry or worse......those who are nervous in the centre.....scoot to the right. Have a little faith.

    It is not a uniquely UK thing. The sensible "Centre" has been vacated in many western democracies with the "left' going far left and the "right" far right.

    "Racist" is a term largely used by the Left to attack the right on immigration policy. No doubt many are...... and no doubt many aren't. How do you stop these people? The tool is democracy coupled with intelligent and articulate argument + a vigilant and vibrant media. Handy is a long term immigration policy that is supported by the majority for the benefit of the country and not merely a plaything of the incumbents ideology.

    I am all for spirited debate. However, personal attacks will not be permitted.

    I had not realised that the "left" had lost the ability to articulate and carry an argument. If they have, I respectfully suggest that the answer is not in launching dairy.
  14. Hamlet sent through this photo overnight. He was smoking a Nudies no 3 (Carlota). He loves them...and that is saying a lot for a guy who loves big gauge cigars. We are both happy with the final 2019 blend They are ready to go into production. I will switch the production green light in the next few weeks for the 2019 No 1 (Lancero) and No 3 (Carlota). They will be available for purchase in the last quarter of 19.

    At no point can physical assault become acceptable in a society that aspires to be civilised.

    Bring back the stocks! Perpetrator gets put in stocks in the city square where passing pedestrians can throw free milkshakes at them during a 3 hour window. Same goes for egg throwers
