    Had a Torano Exodus 1959 this afternoon at the B&M. Excellent, as always.

    About to go fishing around for something else.

    Oliva Serie V in one hand (God, I love these cigars), Old Fashioned in the other. Kicking back after an exhausting day at work.

    I am an old man. I know this because I won't smoke any cigar with a silly name.

    You're missing out then. Yeah, silly name but still a good tasting smoke.

    I take it you won't be buying any of the Papas Fritas either???......:D

    LOL. I know I'm missing out; that's part of being old too.

    I'm with you, Spill, but I also won't try those cause, unless I'm mistaken, they're all oversized ring gauges.

    I've smoked some 52 or 54s that were good, but I've NEVER smoked a 50 ring gauge cigar and thought "you know, this is a good cigar, but damn...I just wish it were harder to hold and smoke comfortably!"

    Maybe I'm missing out, but I prefer cigars in a much more comfortable size. If the blend isn't good in a smaller ring gauge, then even if the blend is good on some level, it's probably not for me.

    I prefer coronas and lonsdales, but I do enjoy larger cigars like a toro or a belicoso on occasion, and on rare occasions a churchill can be a treat on a summer afternoon.

    Anyway, back to the thread....I'm finishing up an Excalibur maduro corona. They were called Amatista I think...some special deal I got for about 2 bucks a stick on closeout from JR in a silly upright plastic container. Awesome deal, this is a really nice mild-medium (leaning to medium) smoke

    The baitfish are AMAZING. I hate the 60 RG MUWAT but I can smoke baitfish all day. It's a 4x44

    Nice. They certainly have a good pedigree....DE and JdN? Gotta be good. I didn't know they made a small one.

    I really miss Drew Estate's La Vieja Habana The Early Years that CI used to sell. I remember they made a 4x44 stick they sold in boxes of 40 for something ludicrous like a buck a stick...maybe more like 1.50...my memory is failing me here, but it was a really nice smoke for not much money at all

    I have often said a 6x46 corona is the perfect vitola. I also like a 5x50 robusto sometimes, though. All depends on the blend and wrapper, of course, but I don't buy anything larger than 50 ring. With larger ring gauges, especially those cursed 60-rings, for one thing, the wrapper pop is lost, and for another, it just looks ridiculous.

    I have no problem with a 54 or 52, depending on the cap. If it is a torpedo/belicoso/pyramid/salamone or otherwise tapered shape, it's a-ok, but that is still assuming that the cigar is rolled such that it isn't so bunched up in the end that you get a poor draw if you snip to around a 45 or 46 spot.

    Ortega Serie D Maduro. The whole thing is a blatant Padron rip-off, but it's a tasty smoke and costs less than half what a nice sized Padron 26 costs. Really attractive wrapper leaf, nice flavor, a good progression of flavors as the cigar burns down. Worth a try, IMO, and the price is right on them.
