  1. Gentlemen, in keeping with tradition this thread is to post your top 5 smoking experiences of 2018. There are no limits on production, age, regular ir special even NC’s are welcome if you enjoyed them. A picture would be appreciated.
  2. Fellow FOH Members. Here are you Top Cigars of 2018 (and 2017 thanks to Habanos' release woes) The cigars in this list reflect what was considered a "New" release by HSA in 2018. Of course, planned release date =/= actual release when it comes to HSA so some 2017 sticks were included. Before we begin; some stats. 137 Members voted. (IMO, that seems low, but IIRC it's an improvement over previous polls) There are 4 ties, so we won't officially get a "top 10". One cigar received zero votes. The HdM Rio de Seco. Not a big surprise as this was a pretty recent release. 58 Members voted for "NONE OF THE ABOVE". This can be read two ways. Many members did not get a chance to sample any of the listed cigars for one reason or another. This thread will allow comments, so those of you that voted this way; please feel free to expand as to what prevented you from trying anything. Of if you did and did not care for any of the candidates. Shenanigans. I really hope this isn't the case. Could it be a middle finger to Habanos? To this poll? Who knows? The List. #1 Trinidad La Trova LCDH Exclusivo #2 Quai D'Orsay No. 50 #3 Cohiba Talisman EL 2017 #4 (Two way tie) Montecristo 1935 Series Dumas Punch Regios Del Punch EL 2017 #5 H Upmann Connosseur B 2017 Habanos Specialist Series #6 (Three way tie) H Upmann Sir Winston Gran Reserva Cosecha 2013 Partagas Series E1 EL 2017 Quai D'Orsay No. 54 #7 (three way tie) Bolivar Soberano EL 2018 Montecristo 1935 Series Leyenda Romeo y Julieta Tacos EL 2018 #8 (Two way tie) Cohiba Robusto Reserva Cosecha 2013 Montecristo 1935 Series Maltes Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote. I've put the final voting tally below for reference so you can see how the votes ended up. I personally only tried 4 of the above with only one on multiple occasions. I think the Trinidad La Trova is a worthy of #1 status and may became a classic. Please feel free to discuss this "latest" batch of Habanos. What you liked, hated or otherwise felt "meh" towards. Final Poll results.
  3. Greetings all. We've got a fellow FOH'r visiting Toronto late September. @encephalization It's been a while since many of us have herfed together, given our city's unfriendly anti-smoking stance. So, weather permitting, there is a good spot we can meet and smoke unmolested (mostly). The Yorkville Rock Park. BYOC and grab a coffee from one of the nearby shops. Let's aim for a 4:30PM start. The map link is above. Here's a few pics to situate yourself. Map. Where we'll be. RSVP via this thread if you're interested.
  4. As fortune would have it, Hamlet has landed in Toronto and will be in town for a few days. He was supposed to be in Nicaragua but given the tense situation down there, he was redirected up here. He co-headlined an event with a couple of other NC brand reps in town at a local B&M which happily is 10 mins away from my house. I had the opportunity to try a robusto from his new 25th Year release, And though I do not smoke many NC's, this one was a really pleasant departure from what I remember when I used to. I enjoy and still smoke his Tabaquero line now and then but I find this one aligns more with my Cuban cigar trained palate. Overall, it was medium bodied and had some very good flavour transitions. Couple that with a good draw and razor sharp burn line and you have a recipe for an enjoyable smoke. I picked up a couple of the other vitolas to see what they're about too. It was great to see him looking healthy and happy and as usual, he regaled us with entertaining stories throughout the night. If you ever get a chance to meet him at your local B&M or trade show, do so.
  5. Hi Guys, Opening Day is just around the corner! I've been running a fantasy baseball league with fellow smokers since 2006 or so. It started at the Cigar Aficionado forum and have shifted to the FOH forum for the last 3 years or so. For 2018, we already have nine of 12 members, looking for three more. The buy-in is $50 with payouts to 1-3 (56.67%/26.67%/8.33%) and best regular season record (8.33%). This is a head-to-head custom 5x5 league over at Yahoo. If you are interested, please take a look at the detailed settings and let me know. Draft is this Sunday March 25, 8:30pm CST. Thanks for reading!
