    Me too Mike, although I have had a tyre blow out on a rental car so my wallet is stinging from that, so may be the cigar gods are saving me the anguish of finding gems that are beyond my pocket!

    Any updates for Seville? I've got a friend there for a couple of weeks and I might be able to get him to bring me back a couple of boxes.

    So the Seville trip is done and I have had a few moments to catch up with myself.

    Here's a few thoughts and observations. There is a relative abundance of Estancas which stock bits n bobs. They hold broadly RyJ, the occasional Monte, HdM and some Partagas along side a broad selection of Davidoff and Camacho etc sticks.

    There are however a few shops to take note of:

    La Cava de Betis - a bit out of town. The picture on google promises a well stocked walk in.... it wasn't and isn't. I walked in and found the shop empty, almost as if it was amidst a robbery. Stood around, poked about and no-one appeared. There was next to nothing on the shelves of the walk-in. Maybe I got unlucky and @thedame007 @ha_banos @gojira @Hookmaker had all just been in and cleared it out.... but sadly it looked unloved and as if it had been empty a while. Avoid unless you happen to go over the river to the market, then a poke around to see if they've restocked might be a worthy endeavour.

    Palaccio del Fumador - the shop window of full of vaping and hooka pipe guff. Look beyond it. They have a large walk in, which isn't. It is a 'look in' that staff will happily fetch things out from. It was modestly stocked but they had some good stuff. They had a selection of all sorts of sticks - regular production and some limited editions. I picked up some Punch Regios de Punch and some of the latest Spanish regional from La Gloria.

    El Corta Ingles - this is a department store ... although google and google maps pitches it as a supermarket (possibly a poor internet translation). There is a tobacconist on the ground floor which has a decent walk in. I found it to be comparatively stocked to Palaccio but with a different selection. I found Diablos. Most of the stock had a couple of years age on it and was in good order. in rather amusing circumstance, the old girl who was tending the department started talking to me in Spanish when i indicated interest in the humi. I stumbled out my basic 'sorry i don't speak Spanish' in very basic Spanish... to which she replied in Spanish 'well I only speak Spanish' and so began our journey into sign language and bits and bobs of Italian (often close enough to be understandable) until we got through our purchases!

    So... all over town people are trying to shift the various limited edition jars that have been produced for Spain in recent years. If this is your thing, get over there and fill your boots!

    Cigars aside, a stunning friendly city well worth a visit. There is also a large cube cabinet about a metre square in the airport stocking Monte, Cohiba, Partagas etc.

    Happy travels
