  1. Depends what's your outlook on Cigars. Do you buy to smoke or buy to invest? I don't have the capital to invest so I just buy what I've heard smokes well and what I usually enjoy. There's no point IMO buying anything overpriced as you can usually find an alternative that's just or almost as good.
  2. Such a tough poll.... there's four or five I would say are my favourites, difficult to narrow them down. Hmmmm if I HAVE to narrow it down to two, I would probably go for the RASS and the Serie D No. 4. Not that recent production has been that good.... but because I've smoked more of those than any other Robustos / Hermosos No. 4... but does that mean they are my favourite?
  3. Smoked around ten favouritos and find them to be a great addition to the humidor as a cheap alternative to a premium Robustos. Not going to set the world alight but for under $3 who's going to expect perfection? I haven't had under-fill issues in any of the ones I've smoked.
  4. What SaintLuis said. I think the Trini Robusto T started to get some good rep and alas the rug was pulled from under it. Was available for quite a while in "discontinued mode" but now seem to have become very scarce all of a sudden.
  5. I always scratch my head as to why the Choix Supreme does not get more love than it does. An excellent daytime smoke, perfect in the sunshine with a beer or two.
  6. I was surprised that you guys gave a 80's rating. I've not bothered up until now to smoke a Petit No. 2, and on the back of this review, I'll give it another year or so before I decide whether to buy a single or two
  7. From David Savona's Twitter Feed: The fat cigar trend cont's. The new Cohiba EL 58 ring gauge. Passed out at the festival dinner... Blinkin' Eck!
  8. I'd go along with your OP choices - along Bolivar Coronas Junior, Bolivar Petit Coronas, H. Upmann Magnum 46, Partagas Serie D No. 4
  9. I love the belicosos shape (like most here) but the two or three RyJ's I've had over the years have just been "flat" in flavour. Nothing sticks out - when you have other torpedo shaped Cigars like the Bolivar Belicosos Finos and Partagas Serie P No. 2 that offer much more in flavour the RyJ Belicosos just doesn't cut it.
  10. When the Trinidad line was launched, does anyone know if there was a plan for each vitola in terms of flavour and strength. I dont have enough experience with whole brands to understand how they were mapped out at inception.
  11. I believe trying to make sense of marcas and vitolas almost to be totally futile. Yes, you may have had a "base blend model" at one point in time with a brand, but over the decades vitolas are chopped and changed, watered down, supercharged up, that the waters have indeed been muddied. I believe that we are at this point in the road, but have no idea of the twists and turns in the paths that took us there. And that's assuming the Cubans had a plan at the start.
  12. Well, it's interesting to see that we have had a player from the NFL and Rugby here in Wales "come out". How long will it take for a player in Football Premier League to do the same? There are still some sports where players are afraid to come out.
  13. Gotta give it to Springsteen. Both his new albums and current tours are outstanding. Definitely outshining both Bob Dylan (who's still producing good/great albums but live not at Bruce heights) and Neil Young (recent output sketchy, but still puts on great shows)
  14. I hope you've booked seats and not standing Ken.... I dont know how you'd be able to stand for three hours straight....
  15. If someone tried to edit their copy of Bitcoin or whatever to try and introduce 10,000 coins for themselves, the global Bitcoin network will automatically reject their system. This is one of the beauties of the network, it's self regulating.
  16. I have a box of Boli Coronas Junior from May 13 that are smoking beautifully, everything you want from a stick this small. Full flavored, hits the floor running. I also have a box of Reyes from April and they are just smoking terribly harsh. They've gone to the back of the humidor until next Autumn. Maybe a few years ago I would put the Reyes forward as my favourite (along with the RASCC, but they're so difficult to source nowadays), but the Coronas Junior is the winner.
  17. 1) Partagas Serie D No. 4 2) Bolivar Coronas Junior 3) Rafael Gonzalez Perlas 4) Diplomaticos Colleccion Thingymagig 5) Montecristo No. 5
  18. Of course the natural progression is for FOH to open a LCDH themselves. Hey it will be break-even or lose a little money, but that would mean we will still have our Royal Robustos. What do you think Rob?

  20. This might sound like a "well, yeah, it's a Cigar from this year, what do you expect", but most of the Cigars from 2013 I've smoked have been very green. This includes Juan Lopez No. 2, Party D4s and Monty Petit Edmundos. Some Cigars you'd expect to smoke ow.
