    One of my all time favorites - La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero, in the maduro wrapper. This is some kind of robusto shape...I suspect an over 50 ring gauge, but I'm not certain

    yep, pretty sure it's the 600 size...just lit up, and it's all pepper and cedar up front....great stuff :th1:

    That cigar is a knock-out, and I mean that in every good kind of way. The first time I smoked one I thought it was going to be way overpowered, but there is a significant amount of finesse involved. Those guys make some amazing smokes.

    A little age reeeeeeeally brings these together. I find sometimes they can be good, but just slightly rough around the edges. With some time in the humidor to mellow them out, they're truly top notch!

    I have a churchill, but I'm not up to THAT much nicotine tonight!

    Their Double Claro line is really fantastic, too. It's candela wrapped - but with a medium-full body. Really good!

    Good to have all your senses working on these little pepper-laced tootsie rolls...corona sized Ruination. AJ needs to get busy and roll out some more of these...they are not to be found in this size anywhere (but in the bottom of my 50 count)

    Just smoked a churchill while finishing reading a novel for a class of mine. I think it's a Fonseca overrun...so just a big old super-mild Connecticut wrapped cigar. Well made, nice draw, no offensive flavors....just way more mild than I prefer. I won't mind when they are gone, but it's good for smoking while reading. I think I'll enjoy them more when it's hot outside.

    Had a Padron 3000 earlier.
    They aren't a bragging cigar, just a dang good one.

    Parodi King, probably the last smoke of the day. Definitely no bragging right here....Padron sounds good, I haven't had one of those in years! Loving this Parodi, though :)

    J.Grotto Reserve. This is one that benefited from a few weeks rest in my humidor. The first one I smoked fell flat for me, and smoked a bit harsh. It reminded me of all the things I don't like about Quorum. This one is hitting a good note today alongside french roast coffee, but I think that the regular J. Grottos and Series Silk are better cigars overall.

    Alec Bradley Tempus - Genesis (corona)

    Never had one before, this has been in the humidor for a good while, and in someone else's for a while before that....so it's been resting a good long time. From first puff it's great :)

    ^ I'm a big fan of the Tempus. Terrific cigar.

    Probably the best flavor:price ratio I know of. I always keep a couple handfuls of those around.

    So we got a solid 3 inches of snow at my house today, a very rare occurrence here in the Deep South. I'm so happy I could dance. So I decided to celebrate with a Prensado on the back porch, watching the fat flakes fall. God I love winter.

    That cigar lasted me around an hour....at somewhere around a 5.5x42 stick, with a super easy, open draw and a very firm ash....to me, a wide open draw coupled with a super slow burn is usually a sign that some kind of awesome tobacco is being used. For what it's worth, I thought it was an excellent smoke :th1:
