Thanks for the review bro - and the ranking list, there's a few on there that I haven't tried that I'm going to have to seek out. As always, I respect your reviews and opinions - anyone interested in the zillion of DPG blends should checkout this list.
Um, it's still going on. http://www.rtda.org/tradeshow.html
I would have loved to have gone, but I'm heading out to Vegas later this year -there's some interesting news trickling in around the blogosphere from the show, I'm sure that some more personal accounts will be posted here soon.
:r well yeah, I was just trying to make the point that I enjoy sticks gifted by fellow BOTLs/SOTLs more than sticks that I've bought for myself - heck most of the time I enjoy buying sticks for fellow BOTL/SOTLs more than I enjoy buying them for myself - just my :2
Most impressive sir - I started keeping a book when I first hit the slope, now I just save the bands. One of the guys at the local B&M writes little notes on the backs of his bands and puts them all in a baggie - I might start doing that.
The few that my wife has bought me and the ones gifted by fellow BOTL/SOTLs are always the best cigars in my box (even if it says Creamossa on the band).
I'd rather have a stick that's been gifted to me over an Opus or Partagas 150 that I've bought myself any day of the week.
Well Jim, that's a bunch o' poo. Thanks for sharing your experience with us - I hope it gets worked out and that doesn't become their standard operating procedure.
<--- sets aside an El Mejor Espresso for Jim for the next time we get to herf.
