    Who was it that wanted some Onyx and Padron? I found some and will send a picture to see what you want to trade for it.

    holy mackerel....wasn't expecting this...

    So I was thinking, in the summer time I have no coat pockets to stash a cob and some tobacco while I'm at work so I can smoke on break. So I was thinking, it's easier to store one of those little tins of miniature cigars in a pocket just like a pack of cigarettes, and maybe I could find a brand that I enjoy.

    Well I was wanting to give something new a try, like Parodi or something. The shop I went to didn't have anything like that, so I picked up a five pack of Villiger Export Maduro.

    Just had the first one of them....and I loved it! I mean, nothing to write home about, not an amazing cigar....but not simply smokeable, downright enjoyable!

    4X37, machine made, short or mixed filler, and made (of all places!) in Switzerland....but it tasted like a quality cigar, no burn issues, smoked slowly, medium bodied flavor, just a touch of nicotine, nice aroma.....everything about it clicked, except that both ends are open like the foot, so being short/mixed filler you can occasionally get some scraps in your mouth....but really....if I enjoy the rest of this pack as much as that one, I'm likely going to order a box of 50 sometime soon.

    An Old Powder Keg corona from Battleground Cigars. I picked a few of these up from Connecticut Valley Tobacconist - Home.

    Nice place and well worth a stop if you're in the area. I grabbed a couple Liga Undercrowns and some Kentucky Cheroots too...:)

    I had a few cigarillos today....the new Romeo y Julieta machine mades from Spain....not worth the money, even when you get a 2 for 1 deal. Not nearly as atrocious as, say, Swisher or Optimo....not garbage-worthy, but also not worth paying for. I'll keep them until I run out so I have something for breaks at work.

    On the plus side, my Excaliburs came today! So the only good cigar I smoked today was an Excalibur Maduro "Amatista" (corona)....it's pretty decent, and definitely worth the small price I paid.

    Puffing on one of these itty bitty baby Macanudos--a "Miniatures," I think? I quite like these little cigarillos, no matter what anyone says. It takes me forever to smoke a proper cigar, and these things are much more manageable.

    Smoked one of these today and really enjoyed it, although the draw was much tighter than I prefer.

    So here's the obvious question--what are the "best of breed" for these kinda smokes? Partagas, like their full-grown cousins, I've found to be a bit unreliable in construction. Punches are ok. I've been pleased with these Macanudos, but I got them because they were all the place down the street sold, so I figure there has to be better.

    Just had a new Drew Estate Undercrown. Veeeeeerrrryyyy nice. Dark wrapper but extremely mild. I dont know exactly what to compare it to, but I like it. I got a 5 pack from C.I. and my brother and I had one. Both give a thumbs up on this new puro. I may let the other 3 sit for a month or 2 in the humidor to see if aging does anything to these guys. Will let you know.
