  1. I drink Port. Goes well with cigars. I've got about a dozen bottles from the 2011 Vintage still sitting. "Best in 100 years" apparently. Not likely that I'll be able to test that assertion. I'll keep an eye out. Thanks for the heads up.
  2. My eyes tell me grab the greasy, dark box. My palate has found that the paler looking sticks smoke better. 😐
  3. @El Presidente Oops. Put Thurs Nov 18 in title. Should be 19. 😐 Sorry for the confusion. Will be there tonight.
  4. That scene was filmed in Toronto's Union train station. I thought it looked familiar as I've boarded many a train there. IMDB confirms it.
  5. Some old Cuban tobacco with some new Cuban coffee bean. Out in the shed with an mid 1970's H Upmann No 4
  6. So...review one of the cigars in the sampler to enter the contest? Or review every single cigar in the sampler for the contest?
  7. Just fired up the RA 2019 EL. Pairing it with some Ron Vigia 8YO (aka Dixon's Cuban rum). Initial impressions are good.
  8. Hmmm. I'd say the Punch DC. VR Unicos. Cohiba Esplendidos. P898. These really stood out for me. Though the rest of that list still performed great. In some cases, I'm smoking through 20YO boxes. (CoLa and P898) and they're just sublime. In the case of the Unicos , I raided them like a hungry racoon locked in a candy store. My other Unicos are not quite 10 yet, but they're getting close. Nonetheless I sample them to see how they smoke.
  9. I hear ya. Sometimes if a box is smoking really well why wait any further?
  10. I remember on a Havana trip in 2017 there was a good supply of RASS 50 cabs with no date codes, anywhere. None of us pulled the trigger on a box despite temptation.
  11. All have been sampled but not emptied. I have multiples of some with >10 years on them which I smoke 1st.
  12. As if they need this too. https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/06/us/tropical-depression-eta-friday/index.html
  13. That's not always the case. I have cigars from every decade from 1920 and a lot of the bands are pristine. One major exception being 2005 Punch DC's. The gold is pretty much gone from those.
  14. I have all of the following with 10+ years of aging on them. With the majority of them aged by me. Wouldn't give them up. Cohiba Lancero / Punch DC / VR Unicos / Trinidad Reyes / Partagas 898 / Por Larranaga Petite Coronas / RyJ Cazadores / H Upmann Mag 46 / Partagas Serie D No 4 / Cohiba Esplendidos
  15. Before COVID. No. During? Yes. I've taken some plain cigars and some high end stuff on walks and have enjoyed them immensely.
  16. The last time I saw these there were 6 up for auction. Now I see 5. I suspect the buyer smoked one, didn't think much of them and is now looking to get some of his/her investment back? I notice this a lot with vintage cigars that have been put up for auction for many years.
  17. Anyone up for it? We'll use Rob's Zoom account of course. Let's aim for 7PM EST start. Link: https://zoom.us/j/9994333904?pwd=Q0JUcVRHalpRYWR2SnB3Q0RWWVpXZz09 Meeting ID: 999 433 3904 Password: FOH Non Canadian/American participants welcome too.
  18. RACF and some Armagnac. First smoke in the shed since power install. No heater yet. About 7C in here but no wind.
  19. Just saw this on Reddit. Very cool design. I wonder if it'd be good for cigars? I guess it depends on the fuel? https://i.imgur.com/RHjL6iq.gifv
  20. As personal favorite of mine. Great bang for the buck
