    Nicholson\'s Cigar Bar

    If you ever have the chance, stop in at Nicholson's Cigar Bar in downtown Lexington. They not only have a decent cigar menu (about 25 different varieties), but the Bourbon selection is second to none. I enjoyed a WT 12yo with a Punch-Rothchild. Nice combination of vanilla and oak in the bourbon with sweet cedar notes from the cigar. I also enjoyed my first ever EC 18yo with a Romeo and Juliet. Really liked the EC, must pick up a bottle soon. Also tried Rock Hill Farms for the first time. It was nice, but reminded me a lot of Eagle Rare. Pappy 20yo and a Stagg rounded off the evening. I don't know how they can sell Pappy 20 for $7 and Stagg for $11?? They had 3 bottles of it though. I know I can drink it at home cheaper, but at least I save my own stock

    Sounds like a great place for a hurf, Jeff. We'll have to get together next September for shots and stogies. Punch and Padron are my current faves. I've got a nice Romeo&Julietta, but haven't smoked it yet. Maybe Sunday.

    I'll take that advice Mr.Cox! While rummaging around my humidor for the Romeo & Julieta I found a Punch maduro wraped corona I didn't remember that I even had. Cool!

    I am getting ready to fire up a Cuban Montecristo that I got at a swanky party last week! It's nice when I can smoke one that was given than to dig into my stash of Cuban goodies! I've had this one before, and it is yummy to the utmost that which might be yummy! Lets see, should I compliment it with OFBB, Blanton's, Jefferson Reserve, or........See ya, H'wood

    I've only smoked one Habano Montecristo. It was a #4 and delicious in every way. Monte's will stand up to any bourbon with ease. I LUV 'em!

    Re: Nicholson\'s Cigar Bar

    Hey Linn great idea, we should do a cigar event. Maybe at the Old Tavern.

    I'll try to bring some Cohibas! Wonder how Cohibas and Stagg (or Pappy's 20y) would pair up. Folks, what's your dream smoke? I can start hunting.

    Cheers,
    Omar

    Count me in. So far my favorites are the Romeo and Julietta's and the CAO L'Anniversaire Extreme. I plan on gettting either a bottle of Pappy 20 or Hirsch 20 with my tax refund. It will be interesting to see what smokes best with them.
