    I get packages. Since Puerto Ricans are not in the habit of sending packages that go BOOM, I felt comfortable opening the box sent by @Doogles. Without further ado, let's find out what's in the box.

    @Doogles went above and beyond and did me a solid and it was all unexpected. Very thoughtful to send me such a baller travel humidor for my brithday... and one that matches my Ducati Panigale.

    Thanks again, dude. I'll have to figure out how to return the favor.

    Free Uber rides or dick pics is really the only answer here.

    Not a particularly great shot, but I was able to sneak in a subtle Rolex flex for @YellowSnow and that's what really matters.

    First time trying this cigar, lasted the entire game, pretty awesome smoke and even a lightweight like me didn't get green in the grills.


    The hard part was pretending to root for the Niners, I joined an old diehard type but forgot to tell him I bet heavy on the Eagles. Seeing the QB massacre unfold made the experience sweeter.

    I admire you right now.

    It was minus 10 with the windchill in White Wakanda yesterday. Throat cancer was avoided.

    For now.

    Weird. You talked me out of a MC White label purchase awhile back.

    Or was that just more Injun sorcery?

    You would have to understand the apprentice to master relationship @Doogles and I have with putting him on the path to be able to enjoy smoking.

    I read a review of this cigar someplace, don't remember where, and it sounded interesting, so I bought a few. I let them sit for a couple of months and then when the fog/drizzle/sleet finally broke the other day, I gave it a try. It did not disappoint.

    It was mild/medium, but not at all tasteless. Consistent smoke throughout and probably the most even burn I've ever experienced. No touch-ups, no re-lights, nothing but a perfect ring and burn all the way down to the nub.

    It was a solid 90 minute - 2 hour smoke, and I got it from Corona Cigar at $15/stick.

    I've seen it described as "full bodied", but that wasn't my experience. In fact, I thought this would be a good entry cigar for someone who hadn't tried a cigar before, or had limited experience, because it was a really high-quality smoke, without any harshness or lingering after-taste.

    OFC Pi Synesthesia Limited Edition 2022:

    The Pi Synesthesia is the second cigar from the new Ozgener Family Cigars (OFC) brand. It’s a limited-edition cigar that is named after an art series that was created by Cano Ozgener, father of Tim Ozgener. The OFC Pi Synesthesia Limited-Edition 2022 is a 6” x 52 Toro that features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, an Ecuadorian Habano binder, and Nicaraguan fillers. It’s made at Tabacalera Pichardo located in Esteli, Nicaragua.

    I also have a box of these on the way:



    I generally don't buy boxes of stuff I've never tried, but the reviews for this have been so good that I had to give it a try. I couldn't find any singles available and frankly, it took some work to find anyone online that had boxes still available.

    Reviews say that it's worth the hype ... I'll make sure to post in a couple months to let you know if the reviews were right.

    Appreciate that review. Looks like a nice stick. See if my local guy has them.

    Something very Blair Witch Project-ish about this cigar.

    Makes me nervous enough to skip it.

    Looks like the type of cigar I would light off inside the house while the wife is out of town. If I'm still alive when she gets home, she'll kill me shortly thereafter. Win, win, win

    Was in Bandera, TX for lunch and found out it was Mardi Gras and a parade. Bandera Cowboy Capital of the World is a fitting description. Anyway ran across Strokers Stogies and bought a couple of cigarillos to have a quick smoke. Pretty good but I do not know cigars I just smoke the damn things.

    Gal working there gave me their card and I looked them up - one cigar on the website was a double Madura (whatever that means) and had a review from Cigars and Leisure magazine. Thought I would link the article and you real cigar afficiandos can check it out -

    Probably my favorite cigar ever and almost impossible to find. Extremely limited releases.

    Get it before it's gone. Padron Black.
