    Went for the Punch Punch.
  2. I still think we need to draft a new owner and get rid of Bruce Allen! As someone who grew up in the Washington DC area and remembers the loyal fan base and the fact we had a waiting list for tickets compared to what we have now, changes at the top are needed. Rant over.
  3. I don't keep them, but by the time I get one off it isn't worth keeping.
  4. This is tough and I'm sure my wife would add Cohiba in there as she is known as Cohiba Witch (sp.)! Had to add Por Larranaga is there as #6 as I had a Picadores the other night that was fantastic. 1. H. Upmann 2. Vegas Robaina 3. Bolivar 4. Trinidad 5. Ramon Allones 6. Por Larranaga
  5. The fact is you can't save them all and when you have to go 2/3s of the way to get a better draw I would suggest that you let that cigar rest or dry box for a couple of weeks and then try it. When the channel you ream is so wide open along with the draw, it just won't smoke well. There are days when I sit down and go through some of these questionable cigars and give them a try and usually toss them halfway through smoking them. I like the perfect draw and have saved many cigars using it, but you can't save them all.
  6. I'm going with no as I think that is the correct answer. When I started this journey I was smoking NCs and then met up with a great group of people who got me into CCs and also educated me on where to buy them. One of those was Mark (N2Adventure) who sent me here.
  7. I'm one of those people who is very particular about my coffee. I roast my own beans and have a top notch burr grinder and then weigh the beans and use a pour over clever coffee dripper. The ideal roast is one that you like and although the darker roasts that I prefer do cover up some of the nuisances of the beans, I still prefer the darker roasts. Lately I have been playing around with roasting to see if I can get some of the more subtle favors back by pushing my roasts to 1st crack and then lowering the temps as I roast to 2nd crack. I think it has helped, but I really need to do some cuppings of different roasts to get a true comparison.

    Coolidor Question

    I would think this would be my first thought followed by making sure that it is airtight enough to hold the humidity level you want.
  9. Great weather here in central Florida, 85 yesterday and 75 today!
  10. I had a 1973 Yamaha xs650 and a 1970 Ducati 450 Desmo before that.
  11. It's a little chilly here in Central Florida with a high of 65 today, but back in the 70s this weekend and all of next week. Not missing the snow and crappy weather back in Maryland at all.
  12. My wife's father owned a jewelry store and we went in and picked out our rings. I got a great price and this worked out really great whenever I needed to buy jewelry for her.
  13. The same thing just happened to me, we are back in Maryland for the holidays and we stopped by one of favorite restaurants. We know the owner as he use to live across the street from us. After greeting us and getting up to date on things, he said he had some cigars for me as a friend had brought a box back from Cuba for him.
  14. I bought 2 of these back in July and have been very happy with them.
