  1. My wife bought this for me. It’s pretty nice.
  2. Not much text to this review as I was entertaining while enjoying it. I wanted to grab a nice stick for afternoon Easter dinner, and I had one of these in the cooler so I figured I would pull it out. Simply stated, it was amazing. I had one a few years back and I remembered it being good, but the years have definitely pushed this into the category of great cigars. Construction was perfect. Lots and lots of rich creamy smoke. Hints of fruit (strawberries and raspberries) that lingered throughout the entire cigar that married perfectly with light chocolate notes. All I can say is that I wish I had more of these. 5/5.
  3. Not necessarily. I have a friend who’s old boss used the two penis defense. The woman testifying described the defendant’s penis as normal looking. However the defendant had a rare genetic disfigurement that can only described as... having a second penis. The attorney literally had his client “whip ‘em out” to show the judge.

As I watched the video I kept wondering when I was supposed to be horrified. I mean, did it seem like an odd advertisement? I guess. But horrified? No.

    One of my favorite days of the year - Patriots’ Day! That means I’m working from home while enjoying a ERDM Lonsdale from ‘01 while listening to the Red Sox 11:00 AM start.
  7. I’m a big fan of the series as well. However, this is exactly what I’m afraid of. I know that each of these last episodes will be longer than an hour, but I think they are going to be short on time when it’s all said and done. Hopefully I’m wrong...

  10. I found myself with some free time this afternoon, a rarity on a Saturday with two kids, so I went diving in my humidor for something to pair with the nice weather. I actually didn’t think that I had any Ramon Allones for this weekend’s contest, but then I found a Silver Jubilee hidden away. This was a wonderful cigar, and I really wish I had more! Started out with some slight fruit notes as I typically can find with the marca. However what really stood out was a salty bread flavor similar to a fresh baked pretzel. The salt wasn’t like you find with a sancho, and it wasn’t overwhelming, but it left me licking my lips and wanting more. As the cigar developed, the fruit and bread dissipated, and some nice fresh pepper came on. The saltiness was always there, but it just lingered in the background. While I found myself hoping the fruit would comeback and even intensify, the cigar was just spectacular- from the flavors, to the construction and burn. These should only get better with time! 5/5.
  11. One morning while having a smoke on my front porch a guy ran by, stopped at my house, and then proceeded to tell me that if I don’t put the cigar out he was going to kick my ass. I proceeded to laugh uncontrollably while puffing away. He then just ran off...
  12. This will be a very short review, because frankly the cigar didn’t give me much to say. The only way to describe it is by saying it was a dud. Now, it wasn’t necessarily bad, just wasn’t good. Absolutely no change (that I could pick up at least) in the flavors while smoking. The Who cigar was a stable barnyard and leather. But again, not necessarily the barnyard or leather that you seek out in s cigar. I’ll give this one a 2/5, only because it wasn’t bad enough to toss. I have another one in my cooler, so I may give it a try in the near future and hope for a different result.
  13. Meant to post this review yesterday, but I got distracted... For this review I went with a 2018 Punch Punch. I received this cigar in the FOH 12 Days of Christmas Sampler. This review will be short and sweet, as I smoked it while trying to do some work so I wasn’t as focused on the cigar as I had set out to be. During the first third, I was able to pick up some nice leather notes. The leather wasn’t overwhelming, but very smooth. It also had a bit of sweet cream. During the second third the sweet cream came on! The leather was there, but it had loads of cream. Absolutely wonderful! The final third saw the cream subside a bit. The leather made somewhat of a comeback and I got some toasted almonds at the very end. Some notes: only two photos for this one. I got aught up on a work call so I missed my chance for the final photo. I don’t have much experience with this marca. I don’t know why, but my cooler is very limited in the Punch category. One of the reasons I love this weekend review contest is that it gives you an excuse to reach for something that you don’t always think about- and man, am I glad I did! I can see why Rob was included this in the sampler. So far, it’s the best cigar of 2019 for me! 5/5!
  14. This. What are you currently using? If it’s a foam insert that you need to add distilled water to use, I would suggest that you toss it and just use bovedas. They are more accurate, give you more options for your humidity level, and are essentially fool-proof. Plus, the foam inserts have trouble with mold. Now, if you have a large cabinet and you are using a unit that needs a reservoir filled with distilled water, then you should use amazon.
