    Yup, can you believe they went to that extreme for one Camacho?

    After all the marketing and finance classes I've completed, I shed a tear thinking about the cost of the packaging and "advertisement" included. They must be desperate. There's something different about this corojo too, it's way better than ones I've had in the past.

    edit: halfway into the second third I'm getting small hints of ammonia. If you've got one, I'd give it another couple weeks to a month.

    Ha! Jesus, I hate Ohio State. They're virtually the only non-SEC team that I will sit and actively root against. I can't tell you why either, I've just always hated them. As far as today, I'm an Auburn fan, but I was rooting for Nick and his boys today. Got quite a few friends with younger siblings on that team, and a HS classmate of mine played for Saban while Ingram was there and won some rings. Auburn fans hate UGA and UA, so I rooted for the home state team.

    Smoking a Cain F corona. Again, not very complex, but quite good and well worth the $3/cigar that I paid for them. They get deeper and better every week too. Coffee, cocoa, and wood. Simple and delicious, and it's an Oliva product so you know the construction is top notch.

    Edit: There are cinnamon type spice notes showing up in this thing. What a nice surprise. There's more to these after all.

    Cain F's are great...interesting enough they were born from the NUB line and Sam Leccia. Met Sam at an event, cool dude. He looks like the Criss Angel of the cigar world...except he's not a douche

    these get a lot of hype...I'm not seein' it. I mean, it's a decent cigar...but not what everyone's saying they are.

    Top 5 for me.
    That was the Maddy. I will take either or. If I watch them like a hawk on the devil site, I can score them for under $4 a stick. I like them so much I would make them a 2-3 times a week smoke if I can get enough of them at the right price.

    The only ones that I've had are the 5x42 Corona Maduro's but I absolutely love them. The strength of the spice right off the light is just awesome and I love the large amounts of beautiful white smoke that these things give. I like the flavor profile all the way to the nub.
    I only have about 6-7 left so I'm going to have to stock up, that is why I keep watching you guys that know your stuff. ;)

    They had a run of MOW Ruination in the corona size. I gobbled up all I could. They're good too. You'd like the My Father LE corona too I am betting. Boxes of 10. Mmmm. But they've caught on and it's hard to find em $ right.

    just had a really ****ty RyJ that my buddy offered me...i couldn't turn him down or turn my nose up to the stick. He's not too well off and was obviously very happy to be able to offer me something, as he often smokes out of my humidor.

    Had one of these while at the golf course today: Swag Puro Dominicano
    [​IMG]

    A little spicy right off the light but not much for flavor, then about a half inch in it started warming up and got a really nice red peppery hit with slightly woody and leathery notes. This little cigar burned really well, pretty sharp with no wobble but the odd thing was that the ash would not even hold even close to a half an inch and would fall off easily, (didn't really like that).
    I didn't find it amazing in any way but it was strong enough to suit me.

    Any of you guys ever had one? :)

    I picked up a couple of these a while back, smoked the first one tonight. I was pleasantly surprised.
