  2. Your London woes do sound a bit like what we have going on in Toronto. I'd like to visit London but the biggest factors for me are that converting my CAD$ would land me in the poorhouse not only on the exchange but from what I understand, London can be an expensive city to visit. Second, for an extra hours' flight, I'd rather be in Italy.
  3. When compared to other PC's, yeah the Sig II's don't make too much sense, value wise. My take is just within the Cohiba marca. If I'm going to drop extra $'s on a Cohiba , the Sig II is my pick.
  4. @LordAnubis I would agree. The Siglo II is a solid performer for me and makes for an "affordable" or at least, good bang for the buck Cohiba. My favourites are still the CoLa and Espy but in the Siglo line, the II is king. The VI's can be glorious or pedestrian from the same box and that irritates me. The Sig I is my next pick from that line.
  5. I had to bow out. Got caught up in something else. I don't know if anyone ended up joining. I'll try and get on to Rob's session tonight at 9PM EST. I'll probably join an hour earlier.
  6. Anyone up for it? We'll use Rob's Zoom account of course. Let's aim for 7:30/8PM EST start. The weather here is "warmish" so might as well get in a V-Herf.

  7. A friend has a cigar room with two 80CFM fans and a big key to keeping the smells from coming out is if the rest of the house has positive pressure going into that room. Given the large size of your room, maybe put up another wall with an entrance into the actual smoking room? That way on one side is the area to the stairs and beyond the wall is the cigar room. Won't be 100% perfect but its a good start. Maybe install a Rabbit Air unit in the common room to grab any smoke that escapes and "clean" it up.
  8. Odd. I recall hearing that this coffee/chickpea mix was used during Cuba's "special period". It's a shame that locals can't enjoy their own spoils.
  9. Just fired up a 2001 CoLa. These are smoking great right now
  10. That's a lot of Port and drinking too much Port can make one..... "portly" 😁 I've got about 18 bottles of Port and probably the same amount of Sauternes. Both of which are fine pairings with cigars.
  11. @Ken Gargett @BrightonCorgi @MrBirdman A sommelier friend of mine gave me a heads up on 2011 Vintage Port. I picked up various bottles from that year. From Porto Calem, TF, Graham's and Sandeman. I've consumed two bottles since then and have found them to be very rich in cassis. Thoughts on this vintage? At the time, my friend mentioned this was one of the standout vintages in about a hundred years. Any similar vintages of note that are recent?
  12. I enjoy wine but I must confess I've never heard of any of the ones listed here minus the TF Port. I've had my share encounters of the pompous wine crowd that were wrong in identifying what they were drinking and also took pleasure in name dropping what vineyards they visited and who they met. I couldn't judge them too hard on the latter as that echoes my cigar travel experiences. 😁
  13. I first tried Nespresso in Paris 2006. I went into their fancy shop on the Champs D'Elysee'. I've always wanted a proper grinder and espresso machine but I was blown away by the quality and simplicity of Nespresso. I had a LeCube that lasted me from 2006 to 2019. And now I'm on a Citiz. Favourite pods are Milan, Darkhan, Cafecito de Cuba, Risotto and Roma. When I'm not feeling lazy I'll fire up the old Italian stovetop and make some Cuban or Italian espresso.
  14. Around late September I was thinking of building an old Flying V kit I've had around since 2008. I figured I'd design it be in the style of Eddie's original "Franken-Strat". Never seen him play a V before, so I thought that it'd be an interesting build. After a few weeks of painting, sanding, etc. I've reached the point where I can start to put it together. Here's the back on front shots of it. It's a bit rough looking, but I'm fine with that as it "gels" with the original designs' "finish".
