    It's been a couple of weeks but I managed to enjoy an A Fuente Short Story on the drive back up the mountains to my work area today.

    Another Four Kicks tonight, also in the Corona Gorda vitola. These things are so well put together, and I do believe I'm a big fan. There's a sweet cinnamon sort of thing to them, along with the obligatory Nicaraguan spice. Honestly, if there's anything I would change, it would be to remove some of that peppery spice and add a bit of leather and cream, but hey, it's still a great smoke at a great price.

    First one of these I've had out of this box. It's only been resting for a couple weeks, and it's already quite tasty. No acrid taste or anything, just toasty, bready, slightly spicy deliciousness. I can only imagine how good this will get further on up the road (you know, like the Clapton song).

    Never did care for Blue Moon on it's own but I bet that's a real good pairing. I tried a Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale with a Quesada Oktoberfest and the beer overpowered the cigar imho.

    1/2 way through a Cuenco y Blanco Robusto deluxe paired with a plain old coke.......:th1:............31 degrees here.....:confused:

    That Tank 7 is not my bag, man. I wanted to like it, I really did, but I just don't. I just didn't think the Tank 7 could properly be called a "Farmhouse Ale", but whatever, I'm no brewmaster. My favorite big-bottle beer is Allagash, pretty much all of their offerings. Spectacular stuff.

    Well, I can't compete with Russ today. Just a lowly Ramon Allones Specially Selected, or, for brevity's sake: RASS. Gonna smoke this one and then I'm not touching these until February, honest Injun. Need to let them get their beauty rest.

    I'll make a note to check out the Allagash beers next time I'm at the package store. They carry a huge selection of big-bottle beers and they also stock Padrons and Olivas, so it's a great store in my book!

    Finishing my last Tatuaje J21. I managed to let this one rest for a whole 6 months.....:oops:

    Had chili for dinner, and this seemed like a good choice for an after dinner smoke. Been awhile since I've had one. I still enjoy the hell out of 'em.

    Yes. That's my favorite thing I've had from Boulevard. Really, really good quadrupel. I've heard it compared to St. Bernardus Abt. 12, which is placing it in very high company. It's hard for American brewers to get the Belgian styles right, but Boulevard nailed it on that one, I think.
