    I didn't notice it being particular strong bodied, and it was surprisingly mild flavored. It smelled amazing but it just felt a little light in the flavor departments. Prelight smelled amazing, flavors just didn't live up to it.

    As for AJF and all is "different" blends with "mystery" fillers. Yeah, I dunno. I think a lot of his site exclusive stuff tastes VERY similar, so instead of small variations from one crop to another, he just calls it a 'new' blend and new cigar. I have nothing to confirm this, just speculation based on the fact that he puts out something new every other month.

    Re: So, whatcha smokin?

    It seems that cigars are similar to bourbons, in that respect? Kinda like different names in different markets and/or
    the same blends with different bands/bottles? Like the bourbon "tree"?
    i think, especially, the cigar makers make "blends" for sites like CBid that are the same as what they make for
    the brick and mortars, albeit with a diff band?

    Re: So, whatcha smokin?

    I suspect that a lot of site exclusive blends are really just the result of a very large purchase of cigars made from overrun tobacco that wasn't quite usable for the regular release. Take the EP Carrillo short runs. The regular release is awesome every year. CI has a line of exclusive EPC short runs (Vintage, and a couple others). There are similarities to the regular release but they're nowhere near the caliber. As for being the same among different retailers with their private blends... I don't know for sure but that seems reasonable to believe. There are always exceptions, of course (Tatuaje Anarchy at Smoke Inn, for one).

    Took advantage of warmer temps Saturday and stepped out on the deck with a Bolivar Royal Corona followed up with a San Cristobal La Punta. Great cigars, especially paired with some HH BiB white label. Glad I did too because now we have snow on the ground.

    Had a Quesada Heisenberg and a La Riqueza last night. No pics, I was at a local shop.

    THAT shop is a keeper with THAT kind of stock!
    Meeting my bud tonight for, hopefully a little smokin' and sippin'.
    Sure it's going to be an Undercrown or a Joya de Nic.
    And this bar ran out of Michtners and asked what they should get.
    I suggested EC12 or OGD114, so we'll see if they replaced it.

    The Papas Fritas cigars are one of my favorites. Although it contains short filler from Liga Privada clippings, it is very flavorful and comparable to Liga Privada but at a significantly lower cost. Drew Estates makes some excellent cigars.
