Rusty Nail with Famous Grouse
Its interesting that neither of you are American but claim protection under the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution.

Cigars also mellow and don't burn when the smoke passes through the nostrils like with some of...
After hearing good recommendations on this forum for Patel Brothers, I went on a hunt for these online, as my regular B&M does not carry them, and got a deal on Thompson's auction site, though an interesting thing happened, I bid $18 for a 5pack of the Toro and it did not meet the reserve, but I bid the same $18 for a 5pack of the Patel Bros and 5 pinar del rio and won, so I guess its like 5 free stogies. BTW how are the pinar del rio's, never had one. Excited about the...
