    So, in response to this impressive collection of knowledge, insight, and valuable information that enlightens all of us about this hobby we oh so love, I will say, simply, purple monkey-squirting friar's club, man.

    Boy for a moment I thought you were going to leave out your review of the quality fake cubans I sent you!

    I've gotten my hands on quite(sp?) a few Ramon y Ramon from a partagas 150 humidor would you like to do a review on them? Let me know and I'll send you a few.

    Hi Loren,
    I tried only to link to threads I started. Didn't seem right for me to start linking into other folks stuff as well. :p However, if you're ok with it, I'd like to add the link to the reviews grouping.

    Jim,
    Your cigars provided the best mateials for analysis of counterfeits so far. Would you believe that my writeup using the cigars you sent has been forwarded to some interested parties at Habanos S.A? It seems that they do keep an eye on developments and commentary that develops in certain online forums and this was deemed sufficiently interesting. ??? BTW, I smoked one of the 150's you sent and it was very mild. Perhaps to mild to have been smoked outside that afternoon. I will let the other one rest a bit and then take a whack at it in my garage lounge. Thank you so much for sharing this exclusive cigar with me.

    Best,
    Wilkey

    Hell yes, I would believe it!
    Maybe a new job for Wilkey? Official Habanos S.A. investigator?
    Plus side: Uh, you'd be working for Habanos S.A., and would ALWAYS need a fresh supply of the genuine article for comparison purposes.
    Minuses: You'd probably have to give up your citizensip and you would have to deal with a TON of fakes.
