  1. I actually pulled out an RyJ Cazadores yesterday that could have been used as a tent peg. It was from 2013 if I recall. Overall I don't have much trouble with plugged sticks though.
  2. I've slowly smoked through a box since release and have another in my locker here. I really like them and I do think they have gotten better over the last 12-18 months. I've noticed a few people mention a bitter/acrid flavour, I find that the wrapper of this cigar seems to really hold moisture for some reason so it's a cigar I always drybox for a day before smoking.
  3. You can't beat an ERdM Demi Tasse once they have a bit of age on them.
  4. I guess it depends on what specifically you like about the Bolivar PC profile. For strength, spice and leather you could head towards a Partagas D4 or JL2. For dark tobacco, bitter chocolate and a touch of fruit you could try a RASS or, even better, a RA Superiores. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  5. My vote went for the RA, but only just. I also voted for the CG as my favourite vitola if I could only smoke one although I usually smoke more PCs. There are a couple of the above cigars I've not tried though, the Serie A sounds right up my street as I love floral/honey flavours. I'll have to get my hands on some soon.
  6. I find your comment about not being able to find spicy NCs a bit strange. I can struggle to find NCs that have anything else but spice!
  7. If you've not booked already then I like to stay at the below when in London. Great location near sights, restaurants and a tube station. They also have the Sky Lounge which is a rooftop bar with heated smoking areas. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London - Tower of London7 Pepys Street, London, EC3N 4AF,United KingdomTEL: +44-207-7091000
  8. Interesting, I was going to start a similar thread. I bought 2 boxes back in the day and still have one full box left. The first box was uniformly awesome although I'll admit that the flavors became a little muted over the years. The process of ageing isn't a linear one though, so who knows how they will fair over the next few years. Given how much they are going for though I'm undecided on whether to smoke them or possibly sell them and buy some other smokes to try. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  9. Lots of learning going on here! I work in IT and am currently being moved from an infrastructure (networking/hardware) role to a business applications one (coding, database management, etc) so I'm preparing for about 3 months of study as my company are putting me through crash courses in SQL 2012, Oracle, Sharepoint, SAP, etc. I'm looking forward to the challenge, I was beginning to stagnate a little in my current role.
  10. Excellent, I should certainly manager to get a few sticks in then. Thanks!
  11. Many thanks for that, much appreciated! Our offices are up in the Loyang area, near the airport, but I've no idea where our hotel will be yet. Hopefully I'll get a couple of chances to travel into the center, how is public transport in Singapore?
  12. I'm in Singapore with work for a week from the 23rd, shame it wasn't earlier. I know that smoking is pretty restricted there, are there still plenty of cigar lounges you can go to?
  13. Hmmm, like Natalie Imbruglia, I'm torn. Whenever a larger format LE or RE is released in 10ct boxes I always think to myself "Would I rather have these or 10 Siglo VI". The cohibas usually win.

  15. I've found in the past that certain sticks with too much moisture can be bitter and grassy. Do you use a digital hygrometer? When was the last time it was calibrated? Are you confident that the RH is consistent throughout your storage container?
  16. I've seen plenty of legit boxes with both curved and diagonal cuts, it's just Cuba being Cuba! The problem is that many people/websites point to a straight diagonal cut as a potential sign of fakes which it is not. Smoke and enjoy!
  17. I'm a big fan of them both (Scotland's not the warmest of places at the best of times!). Party Shorts are very consistent and dependable smokes, the oldest I've had a box for has been maybe 4 years and there seemed to be very little change besides a slight mellowing in strength. RASCC are probably my favourite or the two because I find them a little more complex in flavour. From my experience they are good fresh but then after a few months go to sleep and become muted for a year or so. That's when you switch to smoking shorts 'till the RASCC come good again
  18. Obsolete, no way. We get a lot of snow here in Scotland and a manual gives you so much more control. Plus they are fun to drive and can be more fuel efficient than an auto if you know what you're doing. If you're into performance cars then an automatic is often counterproductive as they are set to shift up too quickly so you lose out on a pretty big chunk of the cars available power. Then there's the increased service/repair costs. I'd go as far as to say that you can't drive a car if you can't drive manual.
  19. I'll say Monty 2 as well, it's probably my least favourite standard production piramides. I agree with PigFish in that the Monty line in general is overrated apart from the Especials. I'm not sure how much can be blamed on over production, at the end of the day people still buy plenty of them.
  20. I remember playing Vice City in my teens and thinking it was just amazing but none of the subsequent titles have done it for me (I do love the 80s though). V has come a little out of nowhere for me because I've not been following its progress in any way (I only really play mmo's these days). I'd be interested in finding out a little more about it though, you obviously think very highly of it! Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  21. The difficulty is avoiding spoilers. I'm currently working through book 2 but every time there is an advert for the series on TV I need to quickly avert my eyes!
  22. Michael Buble, I'm not sure how any one man is able to sound so damn smug!
