    The CP Make-a-Wish PIF Thread

    Friend of mine was able to retrieve the package for me, so all is well. I'll update with pics (are we still doing that?) after I hook up with him and get the box in hand.

    The CP Make-a-Wish PIF Thread

    OK I am sending Los some nice favorite sticks -- do I post my wish now? If so, only thing I'm wishing for is a Partagas 898 with a couple years of age. Thanks G .j

    The CP Make-a-Wish PIF Thread

    OK -- guilty as charged. Just been too busy lately to really participate in the forums. But your chastisement broke me out of my apathy mode, Franco. I got Los on some good things I have been smoking lately. Been too long since I shared the love. Thanks for the kick in the ass. Los, can you...

    Very impressive. Never seen something that so vividly made me want to visit Alaska. Thank you for sharing.

    Today's Smoke II

    I'm on 4 days of vacation with the family in Turks & Caicos, brought some of the big guns with me. So far while killing a bottle of Appleton Estate 12 year, among other libations, I've put fire to the following: Edmundo Dantes Conde 109 Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro Trinidad Reyes RASS La Riqueza...

    My very first Cigar.

    In my humble opinion what you encountered is Brick and Mortar Over Humidification Syndrome. I can't smoke cigars I buy from B&Ms without sticking them in my humidor at 65 rh for a few days at least.

    Today's Smoke II

    dave I just smoked an Alec Bradley Family Blend the other day. It was the torpedo. What did you think of yours? I was not overly impressed myself.

    Why Am I Not Impressed With OpusX?

    You are not alone. I have yet to be impressed with a Fuente smoke. Everyone has different tastes. I'm thankful that I was able to try some opus, WOAM, GOF, etc. By the fine brothers on this forum, but I quickly discovered that Dominican tobacco, in general, is not to my taste.

    Padron L. J. Peretti Company 140th Anniversary

    Didn't Padron just release a blend for Famous Smoke Shop last year? Same dimensions?

    Happy 40th B-Day Gordon (g-smoke)

    Thanks guys. After a nice big dinner with my wife and friends -- and lots of bourbon and rye -- I am finishing the night off with a PAM pyramide and some Buffalo Trace. I plan to show up to work hungover tomorrow, since it'll be just another day for everyone else. Good times. Thank you for the...

    NYC Area Monthly Meet Up

    I'd like to attend this round as well, depending on location. Larry Flynt's rooftop lounge may not fly, for example... Not that I wouldn't embrace it. I, in that case, would not be the problem...
