    J had some of those free CB cigars today.

    I have yet to try the vanilla.

    Cherry gave me a little mouth irritation.

    The original was really good and got positive remarks fom the peanut gallery.

    I would buy the original every now and then.

    Just braved the -44*C temperature (wind chill) to head to the shed to fire up a cigar! Despite the bitter cold my Padron Maduro Panatela was very tasty. It's been sitting in the humidor for at least 2 years and it's smoking REALLY well now.

    Just had a very extravagant dinner thanks to my wonderful family, so I'm following that up with a Partagas Lusitania. It's about 36F outside, but I've got a comfortable jacket, a comfortable chair, and a blazing fire to keep me warm. And you know, the wine doesn't hurt. This was my belated birthday dinner, and boy was it worth the wait. I feel like a million bucks.

    Had a Camacho Connecticut on the way to the B&M, and a 30+ year old Punch my buddy pulled out of the vault.

    He has a few boxes that he thinks are at least 30 years old.
    The story he tells...

    Apparently the 90 year old co-owner of the B&M has had these for a couple decades, and they were at least a decade old when he got them. According to his cigar source, Punch used pre-embargo Cuban tobacco in their Honduran cigars until they ran out sometime in the 70's. At one time they had a warehouse of the stuff. Dunno if that's true, but it was definitely a VERY old Punch, and a dang good one.

    Check out the old box.

    I just braved the sub zero temps to spark up one of my newly rec'd Finck sticks. This my first trip down the reasonably priced cigar path. No disapointments yet. They burn well and taste just fine to my common palate. My wallet is real happy with them too.

    I did cheat and fire up my propane space heater 10 minuites before hitting the back porch. It helped a little!!

    Both good choices! I haven't had either in ages, and I only had the MX2 once in Key West.

    Those Onyx Reserves, though! They're something special. Or rather, they were, back when they were one of the best bargains going. Now they're still pretty tasty, but the pricing puts them on par with other sticks of that quality such that they may still get a highly respectable nod from me, but I'm not going to rush out and buy a box. I could go for one of the mini belicosos, though!

    Having yet another Hoyo Epicure No.2 tonight. My sinuses have improved, and the cigars have had more resting time, and they're starting to dial in flavor-wise. I had heard this described somewhere as a "floral cigar", a description one rarely reads about cigars, whether CC or otherwise. This one, however, is definitely floral, and in a pleasant way. It has that solid tobacco flavor backbone, but I swear, on the snork/retrohale/what-you-may-call-it, there is to be found a distinctive burst of floral flavor not too terribly unlike something out of a Gawith Hoggarth pipe tobacco. Sounds weird, I know, but I guess it's something you have to taste in order to believe it. For what it's worth, I like it.

    I don't know how they get these flavors into an unflavored cigar, but those Island people are considered to be the best, and anyone who can make a cigar taste this unusual (and delicious) without resorting to Drew Estate techniques deserves serious praise and admiration. What a neat cigar.
