I almost fell out of my chair when John said he’s 49! My best guess would’ve been a decade off.

No effing way, that Canadian water must have something in it! Looking forward to giving this a watch/listen…

Excellent conversation! Thank you both.

It's been an ongoing joke for a few decades. @Puros Y Vino says I'm a vampire from the 18th century. When I was in my late 30s people thought I was in my early to mid 20s.

Thank you for the hour and half of entertainment and knowledge sharing. Rob's statement about how people early on in their journey tend to over buy and regret is spot on!

While I’m happy with my collection and definitely wouldn’t be paying today’s prices for it, but if I was doing today I would do it  differently. My stash is 1/3 regular rotation, 1/3 random cigars that I liked and wanted to try  and 1/3 premium (think Cohiba, lcdh,  trinis). I would’ve done it more 60% regular rotation, 30% premium and 10% random sticks for a change. My regret is more on the violas. My ideal smoking time is 90 min and I’ve around 50% of my stash around 60 min. 

Hindsight is always 20/20.

Keep those deep dives coming.

Very enjoyable first episode. Good to see John, fond memories of our group trips to Havana.
