    You know that's what I originally thought it was but it didn't measure up. The Short Story is supposed to 4.5 x 49 but this stick barely touched 4. Honestly it didn't measure straight up against any of the brand I could find info on. Is that common?

    Depending on what web site you look at, some say 4.5x49 others say 4x49. But either way, they are great sticks lol. I have had some that were 4.5 and other at 4, I guess it all depends if the roller is Kosher or not.;)

    So does one leave the cap on and the other does not? I am confused. Does that add an extra half inch? My wife would like to know.

    One does not simply leave the cap on.

    La Sirena Sea Sprite.

    Starts off as a serious pepper blast, but it is changing seemingly with every puff. Chocolate and wood notes definitely present. Sits pretty heavily on the palate. Nice, thick broadleaf wrapper, and a slim vitola, which makes for a nice pop. I really dig this one. Razor sharp burn, ash refuses to fall off even with gentle tapping.. Props to gentimmy, because I wouldn't have known to try this one had I not seen him post about it.

    This one was only rested for about a week (just couldn't keep my hands off of it), so I'm curious to see how it will improve with more time to settle. It's already really good, so I'm expecting good things. Really nice crystally, oil-rich wrapper, which seems to indicate that it will age quite well.

    Oliva Serie O. I can handle Olivas rather well, but this one was a kick in the head.

    Thanks! Yeah man, whenever these come up on CBid, I'll be bidding on them. The finish hangs around forever, semi-sweet chocolate and a bit of wood. Nubbed it till I burned my lips, and it never got acrid or harsh at all. I have four more of them as it is, and I'll be watching for them from now on. Terrific stuff.

    ^^^^^ If it's from Pepin Garcia it must be good........right? I don't think I've disliked any of the cigars from him. Some may have not been bell ringers but none have been unpleasant. :thu2:

    Finishing up a Le Bijou Petit......Always Delicious!

    I have had five of these now and can safely say that I will not be buying more. They were cheap enough to be worth a try, but yeah, no more, thank you. They are well constructed, I'll give them that, but they're just kind of harsh and one dimensional. Oh well, you miss 100% of the shots you don't take, right?

    Nice! (The cigar and the strawberry fields.)

    I go to a friend's farm and pick strawberries at least once a year and basically eat them until I can barely move. He grows good ones too, I swear some of them are almost the size of tomatoes.

    Smoked a CAO Brazilia Gol last night. Liked it a lot and the price is right for such a well constructed stogie
