  1. Pretty sure there are a few things in play here. The question being asked here is, as a consumer if packaging matters. The battle against plain packaging is a different question and that is whether the nanny state should be imposing these ridiculous guidelines on a perfectly legal product. It is about the boundaries that many feel governments have overstepped. Further, the additional costs plain packaging put on already challenged retailers who have to comply. I think it is quite logical to have two views on this when asked from a consumer lens or a retailer lens or simply one who is opposed to large, nanny state governments and their ideologue mentality and desire to tell consenting adults how to live.
  2. Just absolutely ridiculous! Simply cannot believe the incompetence our current government has exhibited across numerous fronts with this being just the latest example. The fact that the vast majority of people have no issue with these restrictions being placed on their rights and free will is simply astonishing. The expansion of the nanny state truly knows no bounds.

    Cigar shops in Canada

    Hi Brad, You will see plenty of incredible things during your trip to our fine country and provinces; cigar prices will definitely not be one of the highlights! With that being said, there are some great local stores in Vancouver. City Cigar is by far the best in my opinion and well worth the trip. I would also add Revolucion to your list which is located in Yaletown in downtown Vancouver. In Calgary, I think Zigarren is your best bet. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need any info as I know both Calgary and Vancouver well.

    Who's been keeping me away?

    Congratulations! Wishing you all the very best.
  7. Stating the obvious, but there are a few of ways get to a revenue increase: sell more units at the same price, sell more at a higher price or sell less at a higher unit price. I suspect I know the answer, but I would be curious to see the unit numbers behind the revenue increase. Are they selling more cigars or simply selling less, more expensive cigars. If Habanos' goal is to increase its consumer base the answer to that question should be very important. Prez, any chance you have some insights on the actual sales volume increase/decrease year over year adjusted for pricing changes?
  8. Cabagiuan and Tatuaje would be my two suggestions. I am not certain if they are most Cubanesque because they share similarities with Cubans or because they are so different than many NC pepper bombs if that makes any sense. Either way, they are enjoyable smokes that I can enjoy in the rotation and not feel regret for not having had a Cuban instead.
  9. H Upmann Connie A and Lot 40 Cask Strength to drink. Connie A's quickly becoming a legend and the Lot 40 CS is a complete game changer for Canadian whisky. Tough to find but just an absolute cavalcade of flavour.

    Welcome to the forum from a fellow Vancouverite!
  11. Buon Natale Diana and safe travels! Wishing you all the very best for 2018!
  12. If 40 rg is off the list, I think you should remove the Upmann Majestics as they are 40 as per CCW.

    Formula 1 - 2017

    The last month or so has been brutal for us Tifosi! Everything that could go wrong has. Shame because the car has the pace right now in my opinion. Got to think our run of bad luck has to turn eventually.
