Marevas (2/5)

  1. Positive, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the subject. Even more, it’s a father and son enjoying a cigar together. No matter the mannerisms or the silly clothing, isn’t this overall something to be appreciated and encouraged in this day and age? Additionally, and to be honest a bit of a dig at some of the less charitable posts from the North here, I had the misfortune to move from one poor part of the UK to another (colliery village in Wales to a town in County Durham) when I was a teenager, and despite a lot of movement since I’ve still never found a place that was more pleased with itself and less welcoming of outsiders. I did meet some nice people and enjoyed the beautiful scenery in the 5 years I lived there, but overall the tone and demeanour of the North was pretty hostile to someone who sounded different - and certainly not posh, just different. I can’t imagine how difficult it would have been to look different as well, but I do remember endless bullying of the very few kids from ethnic minorities. Just one person’s experience, but I’d much rather spend a day with the Southern pansies.
  2. I bought HdM Regalos from our host as late as 2012/13. It was a 2007 release. I liked them but most people didn’t.
  3. The series 1 is the most beautiful, no doubt, and it’s by far the most valuable in today’s market. I hope you got a ride in it at some point!
  4. Series 1.5 e-type. I go back and forth between the coupe and the convertible. Today I’m in a coupe mood.
  5. What a way to amp up the pass even further! Very generous contribution Ray!
  6. As the person who put the Sublimes in, I'd be a little disappointed to see if leave the pass and nothing with the same degree of 'can't find / want to try' put back in. The French Libertador I took out is a very hard to find stick these days, and so is the Sublimes, at least at 'sensible pricing'. Everything else looks fine to me though. Just one persons opinion...
  7. The box is leaving beautiful BC and is on its way to Alberta, arriving Tuesday. Clearly these Cubans like the Stampede! Thanks for all the effort required to set this up and run it Chris. It's always a bunch of fun.
  8. Alright! Since Canada Post have been so uncharacteristically prompt to our rural community mailbox, I decided to adopt the same sense of urgency and keep everything moving in good order. Follows a brief storyboard of a very happy half-hour spent elbows deep in a box of Cuban goodness After removing enough tape to choke an elephant... I dug into the box like a 5 year old with ADHD on Christmas morning... Gently made all of my removals and replacements.... Before re-packing ready for the next lucky winner @vintagerodshop: she's ready for you my friend, and even though we're hand-delivering, I added a layer of tape so that you too can get the sense of satisfaction from finally getting into the damned box! @ChanceSchmerr: I'll let you know when the baton gets passed, mate. Since there's still so long to go, I've held back the pass-organiser gift cigar to give to you in person when we see you in August. Hardly seems worth taking up much needed box space for a partially smoked JLP Cremas anyway
  9. Looks like the box of goodies is on its's way to me today, so I'd better get moving!! Thanks again to Chris for organising the pass, and playing ringmaster at another circus Proposed Takes: Partagas Serie du Con. #2 LSM MAR 08 Discontinued Bolivar Libertadores RE France POS MAY 07 Dbl Band RE LFDC Gran Cano RE UK ’13 LAR OCT 13 Dbl Band RE Monsdale (Jorgito-Club Havana) Nov 2016 Custom Roll Proposed Puts: Trinidad Robusto Extra OUS MAY 09 Discontinued Montecristo Sublimes 08 TUG FEB 09 Dbl Band LE Punch Medalla de Oro GB AME MAY 12 Dbl Band RE Robaina Farm Torpedo (Ariel) Nov 2013 @ Farm
  10. In, naturally, but on condition that you come over for dinner while the pass is on. I'll remember this time, promise
  11. I've smoked multiple boxes and never had a really bad one, normally they are excellent. Just the odd one that's plugged, same as any small ring gauge Cuban cigar.
  12. Really enjoying the Libertador. Most of the way through a box that I picked up in November and every one has been stellar. I'll be getting more and smoking them soon, no need to lay them down in my opinion. Only had the two RyJ that I picked up (and smoked) in Havana. They didn't do anything much for me, but were over humidified so whatever flavour is there was probably muted. Overall, I prefer the wide Churchill and MUCH prefer the Dukes. The 2013 Hoyo was similarly bland to my taste, the Punch is the standout for 2013, even if it's ridiculously priced.
  13. The 'ladies' of 63rd are well known for upcharging. I like 39 too.
