    So, whatcha smokin?

    I figured that with the beginning of a new year, we'd start up a new cigar thread. Over the Holidays I delved into the coolidor a little more than normal. Last night I rang in the New Year with a smoke that has gained it's share of accolades, an Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill. Nicely constructed, solid burn, and enjoyable throughout. I'll say that I find AB's to be somewhat inconsistent, but when they're good--they can be really good. This one is worthy of the positive chatter, IMO. Earlier, it was one of my go-to favorites, Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur. Mild, flavorful, and easy to smoke. A nice sit-back-and-relax with a pour of HH 6yr BIB type of cigar. Nice.

    So, what did you fire up lately?

    Kicked off the new year with a Padron 64 Anniversario on the terrace of the Greenbrier resort, after making my girlfriend an offer she couldn't refuse the evening before. Gonna be a good year.

    I think he did. This calls for a nice drink. I will open something new when I get home from work.

    Joe, I did. After 5 years or so of telling her I would never repeat that particular mistake, she was surprised to say the least. I have been wondering who is the bigger dummy- me for asking, or her for saying "yes".....

    Well, good on you! As Oke suggested, a celebratory pour is in order. I'll pour something good, and smoke something good, tonight in y'alls honor!
