  1. Last Trini I smoked regularly, it wasn't that good before Rob mentioned, one box from 19 changed my mind. Now I have to smoke them like smoking a la Trova ....
  2. All distributors are now on the same buy price regardless of scale -- Habanos 100% owned by Communists.
  3. Can somebody tell what cigar Kevin Love had during 2016 Championship parade?
  4. Yes, Choix Supreme is my Coro til disappeared from every stores. first love, now RASS Choix Supreme is just like D4, they taste much different than before, its unique herbal flavor long gone after 2012. How long does it take you to smoke : less than an hour
  5. I miss the cherry note from RyJ. EX4 seems to have the most of it huh?
  6. Yours is TOA, not TOU 😁. All TOU I have are QDO 50/54.
  7. EP Carrillo have good cigars, but never a 95+. Encore is the most overrated no.1 from CA for me.
  8. Cohiba was my daily smoke til supply dried up, in West Pacific nations you paid same $$ for Siglo VI online to E2 from the local B&M, that added some enjoyment, though it was all before 2016. I gifted 300+ sticks to my friends a year, I do my math so I'll gift less to them, not smoking less, I love quality cigars and I bought quite a lot, buying cigars is fun, 24:24 is grand prix race for me, which is fun as well, Habanos knows we can't quit them, I knew I won't, too.
  9. Aging didn't work well on 1988, Had two boxes since 2019, first few sticks from each box were the better ones.
  10. Last one from 17" box, they don't age well 😞
  11. We've been trained to love Cuban cigars, not born to love them. Time to give NC more chances, but are they ready? Maybe not. Without CC lovers they already sold more cigars than before, most hot items are out of stock too.
  12. Tabacs Catedral the place for some full box items, before pandemic era they have some vintage to grab.
  13. P2 too beautiful to resist. I have Tua/Sou code and they are so good.
  14. Fan of Kyle here, too much limited release recently, he has talent to create some regular items making all of us wow, somehow he didn't.
  15. Homer Simpson knew these well... If more and more young becoming cigar enthusiasts, they felt no worry about that. For them, quality cigars cost very much from the time they start this hobby.
  16. Not a fan of BBF before this forum favourite fever starts. It was with Boli leather, factory made truffle jam for me, and mostly badly rolled. Since reading several praise from this forum, I gave BBF a try and now love them! Now they are in my rotation and at least 100 sticks in my freezer.
  17. Trini will be fine, since price hike of Behike, they are true gems of we Asians, taste well when young, dandy as Cohiba too. PCC put Trinidad as much premium brand since Habanos created the lines, another level of 'premium' compares to distributors from other continents. I remember my first trip to Camp Nou, watching FC Barcelona matches (07/08 season), across the avenue of the stadium there's a nice shop selling cigars, when I saw prices of Trini I was shocked. Spain pricing of Trini today is still reasonable, that's totally different world if you do buy Habanos in PCC world that time. I was the youngest one to smoke Habanos around my 20's, now in my mid 30's I'm the oldest smoker in those bars (rich old asians can manage to go a better place to smoke under current govt law), young generation likes cigars too and they are so willing to spend money on everything looks cool. PCC and Habanos knew that well from the start.
  18. One EL with Trinidad band's' can solve every problems mentioned. Trini will be safe.
