  1. Possibly my second to last or last cigar of 2020, so make it good. Cohiba Esplendido MUO MAY 14, these are so good with age. Gorgeous day too. Happy New Year all! Not sure I'll make it up til midnight. Enjoying the final cigar of 2020, a Cohiba Talisman EL 2017 UAO AGO 17 with some Veuve Cliquot by the fire. Cheers!
  2. Gorgeous day. Plenty of time to smoke one of these gorgeous Hoyo DCs.
  3. Tonight, some Oban Little Bay. Solid for a NAS Scotch.
  4. A delicious RyJ Capuletos EL 2016 today. These are coming along nicely.
  5. HdM Rio Seco TPO NOV 18, gingerbread and chocolate in spades.
  6. Finally something after being quite busy for a while.
  7. Something really nice this evening. Celebrating being down 26lbs when I got on the scale this morning. About 20 more to go, lol!
  8. Big thanks to @lovethehaze for the help scoring these!
  9. Been a while since I've had a cigar and a coffee. Son took a nap this afternoon, I had a RyJ EL Taco and some iced Black Rifle Coffee Murdered Out blend.
  10. I do a finer grind for the drip. I eyeball the amount of beans. Not precise, I know, but my wife has yet to complain and she is more of coffee connoisseur than I am, lol!
  11. Drip coffee maker on strong setting. Grind my own beans using a manual burr grinder. Regularly clean my coffee maker, makes a big difference.
  12. Fortunately those aren't allocated here. When stores get shipments, they put them out on the shelf and limit to 1 per person. I actually saw 750mL Buffalo Trace just sitting on the shelf yesterday, grabbed one, about 22 remained. The stores here seem to be getting regular shipments of BT nowadays, not as bad as it once was. I agree with this. It's the ONLY way to allocated stuff here in DFW unless you want to go and wait in line at Total Wine for hours. I shop at one store and the loyalty has definitely paid off over the years. You're right, you have to buy the non-allocated stuff as well. The mom & pop shops here are just as bad or worse than secondary, $150 for Blanton's, $129 for Weller 107, $149 for Weller FP, and even $109 for Stagg Jr. just insane.
  13. I just picked up a 1.75L of it today. Haven't seen those in years! It's finally getting to be more reliably on shelves here in DFW. Don't have to hunt it down like a couple years ago when it was all bought up as soon as it landed.
  14. They did for a short period, years ago. Then when demand went up, they only bottled 750s. With the recent distillery expansions they've upped output. For a 6 yr aged rye, at the price, $39 for a 1.75L, I'll take it any day!
