How are those? Been wanting to pick one up.
Pick up more than one.....
The first half inch or so is pretty bold and then it settles down a bit. I really enjoy them! Great flavor and construction.
Alec Bradley Prensado ..... another santa stick. super tasty so far!!!!
Following it up with an Alec Bradley American.... AB in the house tonight!
Update: bummed out about how poorly the american is smoking. it ran up one side so bad i fel like im smoking a hot dog bun. I was really hoping this one would burn well because it tastes so good.
looks like I corrected the second half by snipping it off half way into the cherry. not a bad trick. anyone do this?
Perdomo 20th Anniversary...again! Love this smoke!
CAO Gold Maduro Robusto - I'd like to say it was great but I have no idea, I've been fighting with my sinuses since before the holidays and I just really didn't get any taste out of it at all.
On the other hand it didn't taste bad so maybe that's an improvement.
Birthday stick: Camacho Corojo figurado/piramides. Satisfying as always. Been a long, not-so-relaxing birthday, so this is a nice relief. Johnnie Walker on the side doesn't hurt either.
HAppy Birthday MM! Hope this year brings you good times, good tunes, great smokes, and funny jokes!
I absolutely love those things Spill!
My Father #1. Yum
One of my faves
Had an OpusX and an Esteban Carreras Chupa Cabra.
I know the name ChupaCabra is silly, but they're a dang good smoke.
CAO Criollo. I'm waiting for CAO to make a bad cigar; haven't had one yet.
Try the CAO America
Okay, those aren't bad, I just don't think they're awesome, and think they're pretty gimmicky. I think probably I'm just biased against the wrapper!
Most CAO are very good....at worst, they're quality but not too memorable, like the Traviata or the Gold, at best they're superb, like the Criollo or Brazilia.
There is a very strong possibility that I might smoke a cigar tonight despite being a little under the weather. I just really want one. If I do, I'll probably snip the Partagas Spanish Rosado churchill I've had in the humidor for a while
Well, I was jonesin for a cigar pretty badly, but even though it's warm enough to open the windows and turn on some fans, the weather isn't conducive to smoke a Churchill tonight....nor is my health. But I did cave, and I'm smoking a smaller cigar.
I chose a maduro wrapped Excalibur corona...I think the shape was only available as a specialty from JR...they came in a plastic box of 20 or 25, which I got on closeout for about 50 bucks....
Some of the best 2 dollar cigars I've ever smoked, even if I'd like it to be a bit more full bodied
edit: about an inch into the stick, and this is just lovely. And I'll be perfectly content sticking with a corona tonight, it's the perfect size for when you don't have a sunny, warm afternoon to lounge around outside while smoking. Actually, I wish more of my favorite blends were produced as smaller cigars....coronas are one of my favorite sizes
Was given a tin of Jonathan's French Fries this past week at the B&M...Papas Fritas...supposedly (machine) made from the scraps of the Liga Privada # 9 sticks. A decent short smoke but I ain't paying $5 a fry for these. As long as they're free, I'll smoke em all day.
La Aurora 1495 Robusto - Getting close to beating my sinuses into submission but still not quite there
I've been battling that crap for awhile now. It has finally subsided somewhat, despite having just returned to a university full of snuffling, disease-carrying students. I subscribe to the George Carlin theory about germs, though. Basically, I don't go out of my way to wash my hands and all that. Know why? Because your immune system needs germs to practice on. I did get a flu shot this year though, and it's worked so far. Fingers crossed that my luck will continue in that regard.
Having another Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure No. 2 tonight, because I can't keep my grubby hands off of them. They really need to lay down for a couple of months. This one is tasty, and it's showing me how great it will be before too long, but they've got a little ways to go yet before they reach their full potential, in my highly expert amateur newbie opinion. Back to work and school tomorrow, have a great week gents!
