  1. I don't agree the desktops are obsolete. I've got 2 wine coolers (1 medium and 1 small) and a few desktops. Usually, I use the coolers for aging and I transfer the cigars into the desktops a few weeks or maybe even months before smoking them. They seem to taste better that way...or maybe it's just in my head
  2. That Firstland desktop cutter looks like the ultimate cigar cutter to have. Xikar cutters are probably one of the best IMO. Although I imagine trying to exchange a faulty from Aus would be quite hassle
  3. This morning a PL Robusto LE - this one was just right
  4. He mentioned that he often buys singles (to smoke) with the boxes
  5. Check out this collection ....not something you see every day *** I have to post the videos in several posts...it won't let me post them in one post
  6. I like the No 2's as well. While it might not set the world on fire, it's a good solid, reliable and tasty smoke. Actually I had 3 of them the past few days. A couple of pics from my mobile...
  7. In China, growing demand for Cuban cigars http://www.smartplanet.com/blog/global-observer/in-china-growing-demand-for-cuban-cigars/6085 . Didn't know they had their own cigars...."Great Wall"
  8. Sounds like something worth trying. Thanks for the review...
  9. Upmann Noella in the morning A few months in the humidor did wonders for these. When I first got them they were pretty harsh. Now they've come good with a creamy-nutty flavour and a nice aroma. I've only got one left and I'm planning to get some more
  10. WOW I wasn't expecting this...thanks guys, much appreciated. What can I say, I'm just lucky Thanks for letting me know (I misunderstood ur message initially)....at our next cigar get together, the cigars are on me
  11. Speaking of the Fuente line... News: Casa Fuente Gets New Exclusive Line http://www.halfwheel.com/?p=25405
  12. A day off today meaning cigar overload Morning: Petit Edmundo (enjoyable) followed by a RA Petit Robusto RE Israel (great little cigar. Wish I had a box of them) Arvo: CAO Associate (not bad but this one was a I bit too dry) Evening: just finished smoking a Monte No 2
  13. Good review. So far I've only smoked 1 Perfection X and found it an enjoyable smoke as well. Yesterday I had an Anejo Reserva No. 48 that had an interesting smooth-sweet flavour that was quite enjoyable, although towards the end I got a bit of a nicotine overload (admittedly I had another cigar 3 hours earlier). About a month ago, I managed to score a few of the famed "Sharks" (maduro wrapper) and I couldn't resist smoking one only a day later. I suppose the lack of rest after the lengthy trip was part of the reason for the terrible burn and not the greatest of flavours (too spicy for my liki
  14. Loved the series but haven't read the book(s) so I can't compare.
  15. Habanos marks 520yrs with H.Upmann release => http://aussiecigars.com/2012/03/15/habanos-marks-520yrs-with-h-upmann-release/ .
  16. Don't be like that....You know I almost always get my way
  17. I'm suppose to be working that night but will do my best to organise a shift swap or see if I can convince the boss to give me leave for the night. Will let you know for sure as soon as I can...
  18. Had something special last night, a Monte GR....definitely an exceptional smoke even at this early stage
  19. "La Luna" in Carlton is a great place for steaks http://www.lalunabistro.com.au/ and "Number 8" at Crown is another good restaurant http://www.number8atcrown.com.au/home/
  20. I think so. It also has an added band from the merchant for his top shelf stuff, something like the PSP here
