  1. Partagas Seleccion Privada - Edición Limitada 2014 (OPG Dic 2014) Vitola: Magnum 50 (50 ring gauge x 160 mm or 6.3 inches) Introduction: I've been meaning to visit this cigar for some time now, perhaps as much as 12 months. So why did I put it off for so long, and why has this Limited Edition cigar flown 'under-the-radar' lately? Certainly you rated it highly. A recent thread below discussed the two best Limited Editions of the past three years and the Partagas Seleccion Privada got many of your votes. Heck, it even got my vote! (Okay, I've sampled the H.Upmann Magnum
  2. Format: Robusto Dimensions: 58 ring gauge x 127 mm Date: Saturday 9th of July, 2016 Cold Draw: Chocolate, cocoa and vanilla bean and 'refined'* barnyard. (*refined barnyard, as in, a barnyard aroma that is easily scented, yet not pleasantly overwhelming, if you get what I mean!) Lit: 2:05 p.m. Initial Draw: Again, I used my 3-in-1 Credo Punch Cutter, using the largest 14 mm cut, to make another perfect punch. Like my recent H.Upmann Magnum 56 2015 Limited Edition review, this cigar is another jaw-breaker, with a 58 ring gauge this time! There's nice elements of light c
  3. Format: Grand Corona (Factory viola: Hermosos No.3) Dimensions: 48 ring gauge x 140 mm Date: Tuesday 12th of July, 2016 Cold Draw: Wonderfully refined barnyard with a hint of earthiness and mocha coffee. Lit: 1:45 p.m. Initial Draw: Again, I used my 3-in-1 Credo Punch Cutter, but this time I used the largest 10 mm cut, to make another perfect punch (The 10 mm punch cut is for cigars up to 48 ring gauge). I really like the size of this Limited Edition cigar, at 48 ring gauge by 140 mm, it's very close to my favoured corona-size, which I find ideal. The draw is excellent
  4. Best New Cigars of 2014 Notes: Heavy emphasis on "new" since Habanos is not great with meeting release dates, many of the cigars listed were actually released late 2013. Not many have had a chance to smoke them, so I've bumped them up to make them eligible for 2014. This poll is just for fun. It is not the most scientific but it is hoped that we can capture FOH members' opinions on what they enjoyed the most the past year. (or so) I've taken this list of what was released late 2013 and throughout 2014 to come up with "Best of 2014" Candidates. The items not grayed out are eligible for t
  5. Received a few texts from Keith last night as he was attending the opening dinner of the Partagas Festival. Which was somewhat rained out. He reports the following: Launch of Partagas Clubs and Mini's in 10 and 20 packs. The packs sport the Partagas red and black color motifs and look like cigarette flip top packages. They're in limited international release. They are calling these packs "Serie Club" On a more sombre note. Noted Italian aficionado, Massimo Di Giovanni, had reportedly passed away suddenly on Sunday. There was an "In Memorium" done at the opening dinner. Very classy.
  6. I managed to snag one of these "obscene" monsters. For comparison, I lined it up against the BHK56 and Cohiba 1966 EL 2011 Here they are in line. A look at the foot Part 1 A look at the foot Part 2 I didn't notice a huge difference in the RG between the Supremo and BHK. The BHK56 did seem a bit puffy to me at the foot. Either that, or the 2RG difference isn't easy to make it.
  7. ANNOUNCEMENT It's been quite some time since the dust settled on the 2014 Toronto MegaHerf. I realized that we did not publicly announce how much money everyone's generosity has raised. If we go back to the 2013 event, we raised $5800 which was a huge increase over the 2012 event. (~$3000) I am therefore proud to announce that we bested our 2013 achievement. In 2014, we raised $7651! (Canadian funds) :clap: :clap: This year we are splitting the funds between the following charities. The Nicaraguan Children's Feeding Mission that our fellow FOH'er Rob Schildt (aka “freefallguy”) len
