We will be crashing a _ club tailgate…it is always a “good” ti_e….like others said, the golf course _ay be really soft.
Headed to the Ga_e on Saturday but staying in a hotel in Toledo Friday night, No da_n way a Xichigan hotel gets _y _oney.
Nobody said Vince Vaughn? Drake? Casey Anthony?
The V is good stick. I have some Churchills that are my go to golf smoke.
Don't smoke it without a full stomach. If you start to feel the buzz eat some sugar that will keep it in check. They typically mellow with age.....
Remember last year? They looked damn good up until the Sugar Bowl......if you are afraid to face the best you aren't the best!
Otter Creek used to have a course...this was back in the 80s....not sure if still available though.....
Looks like it may still be there:
Missed this one...good right up. Currently smoking an Opus X "power ranger" as I catch up on some work. A few fingers of W.L. Weller 12 to go with.
Been a long time since I played...most of my courses were in Kentucky parks... I do know that Whittenburg has a course that funnels through their campus...
They have a point especially in the Caribbean/Mexico. Europe is a bit different. I have seen fakes at LCDH stores too....but your odds are better as they are supported by Habanos S.A.
Over the years, I have become very adept at spotting fakes.....even the really good ones. Getting to know date codes and factories, dots on labels, box markings and even standard lengths down to even the rolling patterns of the filler/binder. You have to be careful, some people get really offended if you point out their "Cohiba" cigars they bought on the beach or in Miami are fakes. I typically won't volunteer unless you ask me. I am a customer of some companies where they will often bring me boxes of "Cuban" cigars.....I graciously accept, however, every one of them have been fakes. Some really good ones sometimes. I will typically smoke them anyway (toss early if horrible and dissect them) and some have been actually very good cigars.
You can find them ( I bought several on cigarbid) although if you are starting out and just need to keep something humidified a tupperware style container is one of the best you can get. Buy a few 65% Boveda packs from the cigar store and throw them in with the cigars and seal her up, you will be good as gold. Many people use coolers to store their larger collections. I worked my way up through those and now have a walk in humidor and a very understanding wife.
May favorite Daily is a Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Sungrown. Can’t go wrong with most Padrons, and have been sampling many of the Drew Estate non-infused collection lately. Currently working through some Nica Rustica Toros that are quite nice.
Word of caution, 98% of the "Cubans" you can buy from someone in the US are likely counterfeit. If you are out of the country the odds aren't much better. The only place you can be confident you are getting the real thing is at a La Casa Del Habana store in the typical large cities you may travel. If it is cheap....counterfeit. If it has a Plexiglas top....counterfeit. If comes from someone who has a friend's brother's sister's cousin who works at a factory or travelled to Cuba, it is likely counterfeit. Cuba is even overrun with them but in some cases it very well may be a Cuban cigar but it isn't necessarily the real deal. I have seen some strange stuff in counterfeit Cubans...hair, plastic....you name it. Real ones can be had, but many times they do better with age. Fresh ones can be a bit harsh especially in between 6 months and a year or so from rolling. This is often called a sick period.
Even better if you want to really have fun, go to cigarbid......I will let you search it but I warn you it can be dangerous....
Damn our office used to have motion sensors/timers on the lights in the bathroom. Things were set to like 3 minutes.....youd be sitting down and "click" lights off...
We will have to live with this stuff the rest of the year. The quarterback controversy was good media fodder.....they will milk it for all it's worth.
Working on coming out of my Lurkdom.....but I am always late the the comment party it seems....
Screw the membership can you show me a screenshot for a dime?
At least have some scarlet in there to appease those who are traditionalists! Cool poster!
I guess my point is that even from 15 years ago the stigma of "tobacco" has changed dramatically.
Imagine the public outcry if they had done that in today's world....instead a $1 it could get them a program suspension.
Rest in peace, hope there is comfort in others knowing the pain is gone.
