    That was an incredible post ^!

    I live in Hong Kong, and a buddy of mine who grew up here comes back from Pittsburgh every summer. Cubans are pretty much all people here smoke since they're readily available (you can even buy genuine Habanos tubos at 7-11)! There's a cigar lounge nearby which is now a regular stop for us when he's in town. I had a Fonseca No. 1 that had been aged in my humidor for a good year and a half, and he had a Cohiba Siglo II. The Fonseca was an incredible experience--great flavor and a very pleasant, smooth smoke. I'll definitely be picking more up!

    Last night I had an Oliva Serie V Robusto with a couple glasses of Rioja. A special thanks to Marker for the Oliva V suggestion. This stick was dangerously good and I'm suddenly finding my pipes only being used to finish off these great cigars you guys keep introducing me to. :toast:

    New V is a different wrapper. It will be a treat cigar for me like the V maduro is. The standard V is so good for $5 I will not be giving it up any time soon.

    Almost scored a box at that price a couple of hours ago but waited just a split second too long....:(

    Smoking my next to last one right now and I feel a little better.

    If I could afford it I don't think I would smoke any cigars besides Padrons. Love the '26.

    Puffing on a RP Vintage '90 Robusto. It's a 2nd and I have no idea why......looks good, smokes good, taste good.

    Yeah yeah, it's awfully late for a smoke, but that isn't stopping me. I find Pete's stuff to not always be my thing, but I just love the Avion. I need to try the regular Fausto line as well. A three week rest in my humi (thanks again gentimmy) really seemed to smooth out the flavor profile in a wonderful way. Took just a bit of the edge off the spice, I think, just the right amount.

    I really need to get around to trying the Cojonu line now. It's one of the only Tat's I haven't tried.

    Last night I had a Tatuaje Havana Angeles with a couple glasses of a D.O. Toro (spanish) wine that wasn't my favorite but it paired well with the stogie which was excellent.

    I think my phone is showing this in eastern time, no way was it 4 when I wrote that. Thought it was 3. Made for a long day today but I got done early, so I'm having this:

    I never can decide whether it deserved cigar of the year status, but I looove the Prensado.

    Just finished a Joya De Nicaragua Lanceros, but it wasn't evenly rolled so it wasn't fully enjoyed. Hope the rest of the box isn't the same way.
