Just fired up a Fonseca cedar #4 (maduro). This is one of my goto smokes bold full flavored and spicy. A real treat at a great price. These usually go with something older and more full flavored the EC 18 y.o. This thing is great what more can I say.:cool:
I purchased a sampler pack from a cigar website. Got 4 each Padilla 1932, Padilla 68 and the Padilla 1948. Smoked the 1932 tonight.....very good cigar but I had to stop short of a full smoke as I started to feel it.....not sure why as I've had full bodied cigars before. In any case, tasty smoke.
I've been enjoying a bargain bundle from JR cigars that supposed to be a Arturo Fuentes 858 clone. They have been 60% to 70% good. It came in a 20 or 25 pack and after smoking half of them there has been a handful of disappointing sticks - The kind that just don't draw or give a nice mouthful of smoke.
But There have been enough good ones I will probably order again. This was my big pre SCHIP tax splurge.
I got a nice little 5 pack of some Gloria Cubana torpedoes that are just excellent.
Last night, sat out on the balcony of our hotel at the beach with an AF Best Seller and a couple of pours of Weller 12. 'at'll do. Probably follow up with the same tonight. Or, may go with Rocky Patel Vintage 92.
BTW, spent the afternoon going over this months Cigar Aficianado. Anyone else notice how good this mag is? Every month there are lots of well written, and interestng articles.
Cant wait until tonight! I have a Gurkha Beat and a bottle of PVW 20 yr waiting on me. Daddy's on his way home boys!
