    Finishing this thing up:

    [​IMG]

    El Primer Mundo Liga Miami, covered in plume (although the phone camera doesn't really show it so you'll just have to take my word for it). My B&M often has some aged stock with lots of plume, and I had never tried this one. I got the second to last one.

    It was good, but not great. Worth a try, and not a bad smoke, just not one I'd spring for again, I don't think.

    I have had the SWAG "EGO" and was not a fan at all.

    They definitely do not exude quality that is for sure. I liked the pepper that lingered just a little on the finish but that was about the only good thing I could really say about it.
    I guess it is always good when you can learn a lesson for around $6 bucks. :)

    Just finished a CAO Italia Ciao. Hadn't smoked one in a while. Strangely, it reminded me of Guinness.

    Had this stick today while at the golf course and absolutely loved it.

    Graycliff 1666

    The only way I can describe the flavor is a delicious mixture of plums, raisins, and cocoa with just a hint of spice, not pepper but spice. Creamy, creamy and creamy nearly all the way through with the last third showing giving up some black pepper on the back of the tongue and throat. RewRew likey!!!

    another one to add, thanks a lot Ray. I like that band too, a little zen when I first saw it.

    Damn Rew, glad it was good, because that is a big ugly honkin' cigar. :)

    Just had myself a nice Toraño Vault. Really just a nice, well behaved, highly consistent cigar. Great everyday smoke.

    It's not that bad, but I'm glad I have a full stomach. I'm on the last quarter, or so, and it's starting to get a little punchy. Pretty bold, rich flavor consistant through the whole stick.

    Agreed. Four Kicks is a nice little cigar.
