  1. And here is the instruction sheet from a different (but similar) model. "fill with good grade gasoline" made me laugh.
  2. They look like bots. The responses are typically only vaguely related to the topic, and often have external links embedded within the response text.
  3. Regular cigars can still be high end to you. My cab of 2015 Por Larranaga Petit Coronas are amongst what I consider my high end sticks. The most special cigar in my collection is the last Des Dieux from the first box of Cubans I ever bought, above all the other signficantly more expensive cigars in my collection.
  4. I have a bunch of reward sticks that I put aside for when I managed to do a series of specific trapeze tricks. Now that my rig is closed, I'll need to reassess those goals. Monte A has become a staple at New Years Eve for me. Apart from that, I usually reach for the older/more expensive sticks if there is something to celebrate.
  5. Two of their cigar offerings. Those bands look strangely familiar.
  6. Fun fact - after this comic, the term "thagomizer" was adopted by palaeontologists as the informal anatomical term for the spike arrangment on the tail of a Stegosaurus, which previously had no distinct name.
  7. I bought a few singles of these earlier this year as it had been quite a while since I had one. The cigar had a firm draw, and the opening third was just crazy. Nutmeg and cloves, slightly sweetened black tea, straight black tea, pure cream, espresso martini, espresso with cream - the cigar just jumped from one to the next, sometimes lasting a few minutes before moving on, other times only lasting for a few draws. The middle third was a similar story. Salted cream, savour, light cream with spices, cream increasing in intensity. The final third was a bit of a mess and let the cig
  8. Even in our office, I was essentially working remotely as we connect to a server in the US. Whether I do that from home or the office makes little difference. Moving forward, I won't be surprised if they make the decision not to renew our office lease this year. Unfortunately my apartment is quite small, so the working from home conditions aren't exactly ideal, but I am enjoying the commute.
  9. Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro 16 that I smoked for the Slot Machine Review Weekend on Monday. First one I've smoked in a long time, and an absolutely sensational experience.
  10. This cigar is from the 2017 Christmas sampler. The double corona in general has always held a very special place in my heart, as they were always my cigar of choice at the monthly social cigar nights that I took place in for the first 10 years of my cigar journey. While I don't get to smoke as many of them now as I used to, they never fail to bring back those fond memories. This particular cigar was a perfect example with a smooth, oily wrapper and a perfect draw. The cold draw was earthy with cocoa. On lighting, the cigar opened with toasted tobacco which straight away transitioned i
  11. I kind of regret not picking this up when I was transiting through Johannesburg, but I was already at my allowance with gin. The original purple party shooter. A great tasting alcohol, caffeine and taurine party starter! 750ml 24% ALC/Vol - $10AUD
  12. 07 Cohiba Robusto with Johnnie Walker XR 21. Last year, I wrote a list of personal goals I had, and cigars assigned to those goals. Last weekend, I finally managed to hit the first two of those goals. This cigar is celebrating taking my double tuck out of safety lines on the flying trapeze. For a hobbyist flyer, this is a pretty major milestone, before you begin to factor that I did this two days before my 35th birthday. It's time to celebrate.
