    Never got into those. Didn't like the peppery start. I had one with some age on it (year or so) that was much better but really still not for me. Russ really likes them I hear.

    La Vieja Habana (go figure...) Maduro with Sailor Jerry's on the side. I'm thinking I should have let this one age. I'm going to place an order soon for some Kristoff Kristania toros and a few Tabak Especial Negras.

    Smoking my 2nd to last cigar gentimmy sent. I'm liking this one a lot. I think it's a Swisher Sweet made in a undisclosed location ;)
    The corgi was produced in the States.

    Parodi King after a big, crappy dinner (never ordering from that Chinese place again).

    Hey, if it's not very good, at least there can be a lot of it :confused:

    At least this cigar is nice :)

    I think that's why I like them so much. Feel free to send me any you got laying around....:D

    I followed it up with a Diesel Unholy Cocktail. They probably won't win any beauty contests but I like the taste of them.

    Second cigar today...must be something in the air....apart from the smoke, that is.

    Avanti this time round. I stood at my humidor for a good minute, pawing through it looking at the good cigars...thinking, hey I haven't had that in a while, oh that's a good one, dang, that's a few years old, etc....

    Still ended up with this ugly little dry cured stogie. Man, I can't get enough of these.

    well, I was VERY VERY generously gifted a sampler of some good cigars back in January by DocB.

    Having kind of a crummy day today, so I pulled out an extremely special Hoyo de Monterrey petite corona....deputy sheriff or some rubbish name...:)

    He says it (as in this physical cigar, not the line in general) was packaged back in 1999. I have no reason to doubt. Just lit it, and already it's phenomenal. The age isn't all that's special about this Hoyo ;)

    Big thanks, Doc! :th1:

    This actually may be my perfect cigar. Nothing beats a very well crafted petite corona...about 4.5-5.5 in length and a 38-42 ring gauge....sure I like a longer smoke, too, sometimes, but this is just about perfect for general smoking. And the tobacco in this one...man....in a word, perfect

    Oh yeah, and I almost forgot...if it's a good cigar, it's customary round here to post a photo of it to brag

    In the background you'll see a big helping of the Germain produced incarnation of Pelican being dried for a nightcap. It's going to be a good night! :ngty:

    That's one I've been wanting to get a hold of for ages now...Bolivar and Diplomaticos.

    The Bolivars JR sells are good, I know that...but I want to try the "originals"!

    Gorgeous, fantastic cigar. Just incredible. By far the most Cuban-esque non-Cuban I've ever smoked or seen. It even has that same feel when you squeeze it a little. I seriously need more of these. Buy some if you get a chance. It says Maduro, but I wouldn't really call it that. I dunno, just try one. :th1: Turns out the JJ Maduro was discontinued, by the way (got this one at a B&M in Florida awhile back). That sucks, because it's delicious, and I would hardly call it a Maduro. But the one they still make is apparently stunning as well.

    By the way, I thought people didn't drink sweet out west, Spill. All my friends out there say you never see it. They certainly didn't have it up in Vermont when I was living there. I still made my own, but none of my friends ever drank it. They thought it was gross, lol.
