Campanas (3/5)

  1. Not betting since not in UK or Australia, but would love to see Leicester City win (Spurs otherwise). With the wife from Bournemouth, I'm so rooting for the Cherries to stay in the Prem. Just an unbelievable story to go from narrowly avoiding relegation from League Two to promotion to the PL in 6 years. First season in the Prem and they beat Chelsea and ManU in the same season. A club whose stadium holds 7500 fans competing with the powerhouses of English football. It would just be fitting if Cinderella does not have to go home when midnight strikes.
  2. Has anyone had both the French Regional and the current incarnation? How do they compare? I remember the French edition being one of my favorite RE. If these come close, I may have to get some.
  3. Fantastic information here. Will be going to Shanghai in April to celebrate a friend's birthday with plenty of cigar smoking already planned. Hope to have a day or two free to visit a couple of these lounges.
  4. I thinks Abrams has done a great job rebooting Star Trek. I'm curious how he'll do with Star Wars.
  5. I just recently returned from a trip to England to spend some time with my in-laws for the holidays. To make the cold and rain more tolerable, I had the bright idea of asking Diana send a stored box to England. The box I chose was a Cohiba Robusto with box code of PUB JUL 07 and has been sitting in the Czar locker for about 5 years. I've utilized the FOH humidor/storage facilities since Rob first announced it and this would be the first box I've ever retrieved, so I was incredibly excited to see how time have affected the cigars. When I arrived in England the box was waiting for me and even after 20 hours of door to door travel, I couldn't wait to open the package (the hugs and greetings can wait another 5 minutes). Once unwrapped, the package revealed the most beautiful box of CoRos I have ever seen and the smell was intoxicating. Unfortunately, I couldn't smoke them right away, but if the smell was anything to go by, this was going to be one fantastic box of cigars. The next day, I met up with a very good friend who made the trip to England with us to sacrifice a few of the sticks. We both lit the cigars and .... WOW! That's the extent of our review. Words really can't describe how wonderful the smokes were. The cigar was refined, impeccably constructed, and all the harshness of youth had been banished, allowing all the classic Cohiba flavors to shine. For the both of us, easily one of the best Cohibas we've ever smoked. Over the next few days, we smoked more of the box and both the flavor and construction were consistent each time. I've shared the cigars with a few more friends and each were floored with how utterly excellent the cigar is. For me, easily the best box of Cohibas I've ever smoked. If this is the indication on how well the Czar crew takes care of our cigars in the storage facilities, all of us members utilizing the service is in for a treat over the years to come.
  6. WOW! Still catching my breath following the most incredible 2 minutes in recent sports history.
  7. Good luck, Lise. We'll all miss you. Can't wait to see pictures of the newborn.
  8. I've taken advantage of Czar's online locker lay down a few cigars for later smoking. Some of the cigars I have in there are PSP2, PSD4, CoRo, HU SW, RASS, HU Mag 50, and HdM Regalos. My goal is not to touch them for another 5-7 years.
