    Good call on closing out all pornographic material before screenshotting

    I'm pretty sure it's one of my Fonseca Churchill overruns

    You just made me scan that image three times over to make sure you weren't kidding. Not that I would ever dream of looking at anything like that, of course. No, not me. Hey look, a cigar:

    Does my thumb look weird as hell in that pic or what? It looks like a finger.

    I had a bartender that looked like a thumb tonight...poor girl. Did you end up going to the B&M?

    Yes. I had that AVO, and I got this thing, which I'm smoking right now:

    As with almost anything that comes from Geneva, from watches to women, this thing is great. I am developing a really unsettling affection for Davidoff products, which is a bad thing for one very obvious reason. I intended to buy a White Label one tonight, but there are about 236,000 different kinds of them, and I got sick of looking at them. I had had this Nicaraguan before, so I got it. I really want to try the Millennium Blend though.

    This one actually sort of tastes like pipe tobacco, in a really good way. I mean, you wouldn't mistake it for pipe tobacco, but it has a finesse/refinement about it that reminds me of pipe tobacco. There is a subtle flavor change about every half-inch or so after the first 3rd. Really fantastic.

    EDIT, in case I haven't babbled enough: the sweetness that this things builds up by the last inch is just incredible. Seriously, buy one of these. Or a bunch. You can thank me later, or send them to me if you're dissatisfied.

    Christmas time is the right time for these cigars...last year's batch

    Anejo "fitty-five". Might be the perfect cigar mostly cause it's the one I'm having at the moment.

    Merry Merry, gentlemen.

    Brought the travel humidor into town because the coffee shop owner likes a stogie from turn to time. But he wasn't there.

    Dang these difficult life challenges.


    Cutting the Partagas now.

    Which town, Spill?

    The Griffin's No. 500. Along with AVO Classic, I gotta say the Griffin's is just about my favorite mild cigar. Notable mention to Man of War Virtue and Casa Torano

    Well obviously I meant Hayfork, you know, "town." I'm not about to drive all the way to Red Bluff to give away cigars at their coffee shop ;-)


    2nd cigar:
    Oliva V Lancero.

    I wasn't sure if you were maybe heading into Ohio for the holidays...I knew you said you probably would only be out that way for Thanksgiving this year, but if not I'd be game to meet up sometime in the next week for a smoke perhaps, if you're interested. I'm going out that way tomorrow, so if you'll be there let me know and I'll bring something good.

    My smoke while watching the fireworks (thunder and lightning and hail) show, inspired by Spill's picture above:

    My gift to Marker for Christmas:

    And now if Spill would just give me that damned Tacoma of his, we'd all be even.

    Even if these cigars tasted like absolute crap, I would still smoke them just so I could look at them:

    Luckily, they taste like anything but crap, and they go really well with coffee too.

    (These new iPhone 5s's take incredible pictures, too. Wow.)

    5Vegas "AAA" Limited Release something or other I got from Russ a long while back. Dated 9/12

    Slightly thicker ring-gauge and fancier band than I usually go for so it's been kinda lurking in a corner of my humidor.

    Very nice surprise.
    And they have some serious ligero kick, which is probably why they make Russ's cut.

    If this is slumming it Russ, it's ghetto fab.

    took the dog to the state park with my sister and had a Joya De Nicaragua Fuerte Serie B...a robusto, I believe. It was good for what I was doing - stomping through the mud in my only pair of jeans and shoes I have here with me.....but it wasn't a great smoke. It had gobs of great flavor, and plenty of strength and body to it, but the burn was irregular at best. I don't know how much of this was due to construction issues and how much of it was due to not paying much attention to how I was smoking it. Has anyone else tried them? I bought a single one at the B&M today despite it being overpriced because I was curious about them and wondering if I should buy a bundle...my mind isn't made up, I think I need to try one more....I loved the flavor and it had a good draw for most of it, but it just burned so unevenly.

    Gonna have a couple/few cigars today and tomorrow, sitting around in my thermals Holidays alone have perks!

    And though I'm at about 60% physically today after my slip-n-fall, wood still needs chopping.


    YardGar this am is a Don Carlos #2.
    Was gonna have a Padron but I figure that's like a cab before a Pinot ;-)

    My goodness, almost noon West Coast time and still no fancy cigars posted?
    You guys are slipping.

    Well ok I haven't had a cigar yet either, but I'll be having a Bolivar Gold Medal shortly.

    I just got home from a nice walk to Inniswood - saw 8 deer and had a nice long smoke! Joya de Nicaragua Antano [I'm too lazy to use capital letters half the time, I'm not going to bother looking up the n with the tilde over it] 1970 lancero. Fantastic cigar, the prelight draw seemed tight but it was a great smoke after all. It started medium bodied with a little wood and a decent bit of leather and only a touch of spice. As I smoked it only got deeper and richer, into a great, peppery, strong stick of dynamite.
