    Uh-Oh, QdO fans!

    QdO is a Romeo brand with forteleza suave. It tasted like a Romeo until Cubatabaco killed it in 2004 and brought it to Partagas where the factory rolls forteleza fuerte. Sure, if you like smoking Partagas Lite, then maybe QdO is for you, but it tastes horrible for anyone who remembers or was...

    Are these considered good now that they are discontinued? Last good ones were from JNL04?

    Still haven't learned pass (lets go)

    Maybe...just have Carlito throw the box into the ocean, I'm sure it will float up here by next January. And I'll ask Jim if he wants to put something in with me when it arrives next year.

    Sign a petition lifting the Embargo with Cuba

    Only 99,999 left to go! Hell that's like 33 thousand people per day. What is this, a school project?

    Johnny-O! Pricing & Sizes

    Keep smoking and you'll figure out what you like. But wow, that sounds a bit much for a cigar. If I may give a piece of advice, it would not be of a cigar, but the budget. I think for 80 loonies, you could get about 3-5 cigars up there.

    What recent production has blown your mind?

    I disagree. LGC Inmenso, all Partagas, and RASS have been phenomenal. This is just my opinion, obviously.

    Plume or Mold - the universal question?

          And where did this THC sample come from, pray tell. Sourced for scientific purposes, I'm sure. That "macro" picture of mold on bread...It looks like a god damn anemones and it's freaking me out. Can you imagine if you walked into your kitchen and one of those stems was all up in your...
