Is somebody gonna end up selling a bunch of piping supplies to build up a big ol' stash?
Ya know,,,, I've been contemplating doing that very same thing.
The farther I go down the stogie road it keeps getting harder to find a place to turn around.
I'm definitely gonna be letting a few pipes go to get my cooler set up going
Firing up a Pura Sangre... So far.. this is a nice tasty stick!
For the first time in over a week I haven't smoked a cigar today...just my pipes. Thing is I like pipe tobacco better in most cases, but pipes are a lot more finicky and sometimes I just want a good, enjoyable, but mindless smoke. Cigars are excellent for that. And now that I found a relatively affordable brand that I thoroughly enjoy at least as much as smoking a pipe, it's hard to justify the effort of smoking a pipe instead of just grabbing a parodi/avanti/de nobili/etc. from the pack lighting up and going on with whatever else I was going to do.
That said, I'm about to go back to school, and affordability is really a relative idea. Even buying in large quantities online, a 70 cent cigar is still more expensive than the bowl of Presbyterian Mixture I just enjoyed, or the Five Brothers I smoked on my ride in to work or the bowl of Bosun Cut Plug after work. I'll probably get another case of Parodis and one of Avanti before I head off to school, but I hope to get back to smoking my pipes most of the time!
That said, I'm still seriously considering firing up a stogie before bed!
Ha! I had one today as well. It wasn't bad at all...again, probably wouldn't stock a humi with them. I think it's just too big for my liking.
It was one big ole smoke.. But I enjoyed it enough to smoke it down to the last spicy inch.. very enjoyable.. WAY outside of anything I could afford at almost 9 bucks a stick. Maybe if I hit the lotto, I could get a box..LMAO!
Having just given up on a half-bowl of Cumberland that refused to stay lit, I've decided on a quick Montecristo Memory before bed.
And it was my second smoke of the day. Started off with an Avion
Since I got my hands on these handmade sticks, I've been smoking one ever 3 or 4 days... I'm down to my last two.. so it might be a while before I fire them up... at least until I can score a few more..lol
another Tatuaje Petite Cazadores.
Kitty is not impressed.
but that snake is. Gonna be smoking here in a few...probably an OR Triunfador
She's not impressed with much else but she'll scarf down a chipmunk in a heartbeat though. Go figure.
Oliva V Belicoso.
Smoked the Little Wolf yesterday, and for some reason felt the need to take tasting notes (I never do that)
The first 1/3 started with a blast in the pepper that slowly transitioned into more cedar on the retrohale.
Transitioning from the 1/3 to the 2/3, I had a strange taste of Lacquer...almost like what the painted box smelled like. This "Lacquer" taste lasted for only a minute and turned sweeter with every puff until cocoa dominated with a bit of an earthy/woody undertone.
3/3 was a ton of cedar...which is weird to me because I've always felt the last third to be the most mellow
Thanks for listening to my "review"...here's an obligatory dog pic:
I continue to slowly work my way through my remaining Partagi Nos. 4, currently using the holder.
A Camacho Corojo Natural Nacionales and .
My Uzi weighs a ton. Not too bad so far (only 1/3 of the way through it) if anything major happens, I'll update.
Took a long lunch yesterday. Went downtown and ate pizza outside and stopped in the cigar shop and got an AF Flor Fina 8-9-8 Maduro.
Smoked half of it sitting across the Cape Fear from the Battleship North Carolina and then smoked the other half on the drive home.
