Well, hasn’t the last year or so been a little crazy??? Crazy that I’ve just now dived a little more into the BOTL group. I’ve been lurking for awhile over the years and hope to be able to contribute where I can!

I’ve been smoking/collecting (got bitten by the cigar bug) for about 9ish years now. I’ve always wanted to learn more and more about many different aspects of the industry. My interests have evolved from different brands, types of leaf, and have lately been going down the rabbit hole even further. Just like how a palate can change and become more refined, so has what I’m trying to learn more about and hopefully contribute. As of late, I’ve dove head first into home rolling and love seeing how even throughout the years, there’s always a new angle or perspective to look at with tobacco.

I see a lot of familiar faces here from the various groups and forums I’m a part of or have been a part of over the years! Looking forward to contributing even more with such a great bunch of BOTL/SOTL.

Much appreciation,

Frost

Hey!

Welcome from oil/cattle country! :D

What's your favorite stick at the moment?
What’s up Texican!

Favorite in no particular order:

Atabey-Brujos (short smoke but flavors out of this world! Would take an Atabey over a Cuban Behike myself )

Warped- Futuro- Excellent blend and both sizes are fantastic!

Illusione Domenico’s Extra Cruzado- That gold foil wrapped goodness. Best Cruzado I’ve had.

Tatuaje TAA 2012- Top 3 favorite of all time.

Diesel Uncut (Madurai version)- Cheap and always gets the job done.

Arturo Fuente Opus C Angels Share- Robusto or Fuente Fuente.

The list can go on and on, but those are the top that came to mind in the last few min.

That sounds like a nice trip for sure! May have to add that one to the list for the GF and I to hit up at some point. Kiddo has been wanting a road trip. We have been trying to plan out a Route 66 trip to the Grand Canyon in July... been an interesting planing experience thus far. Lol

I love the city. The T is a breeze, unlike the maze of subways in NY.

Right on! I’m closer to BC than many, I should say! Lots of great spots in Milwaukee, Madison, and in-between. Door County has awesome views and things to do in the summertime. Wineries aren’t too shabby either. “Fish Fry” Friday’s! Nothing better than to find the hidden gem locations with a Fish Fry, Great Bloody Mary’s, Brunch, & Brewery... if one is so lucky!

Man. I love me a good fish fry. Call me a bad Texan, but I'll tolerate our usual catfish but I much prefer a good perch/cod...and the few times I've been lucky enough to try walleye...man, that's the ticket if we're talking freshwater fish.

Man... I don’t want to mess with Subways at all! Trying to drive in Washington D.C... absolute worst. I live in WI but would take driving in Chicago or Michigan (polar opposites) over anywhere else.

Boston... China Town... Dumpling House. (Best Dumplings I’ve had anywhere!)

Wash it all down at this Library Bar just a quick walk away.

Been a while since I've been up there but they do have fish boils? Where they add water to overflow the cauldron and the oil from the fish flames up when it hits the wood fire.

Tex... you need to make a trip up to WI and have a Friday Fish Fry... all of those... readily available at various spots. Cod is the gateway IMHO. If you’ve never had a good fish fry, Cod you can’t mess up really. Lol. Some of the walleye and perch. It’s like magicians doing some magic on this fish. Paired with a good old Spotted Cow!
