    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    Smoked an Alec Bradley Prensado last night. This was Cigar Aficianados cigar of the year, so I was really looking forward to trying this. It had a beautiful reddish brown wrapper, and was box pressed; a gorgeous stick. After some significant spicieness on lighting, it settled into clouds of rich, full bodied smoke for the rest of the evening. Halfway through, it burned a little unevenly and self-extinguished a couple of times, but lit right back up with little increase in tar. While slightly too powerful to take the place of my favorite cigar, it was undoubtably one of the best cigars I've ever smoked.

    Just asked about this on your thread. If you want a shorter smoke, try a different size if they offer. The Daytona I was going to pick up was a Torpedo, but they had Robustos and the Double Toro available. I mainly smoke robustos unless I have more than an hour and a half to relax.

    relaxing on the front porch with a Oliva Series V torpedo before making one last run through the garden, and then start pickling peppers.

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    I have so much in my humidor and coolidor, yet time after time, and I keep reaching for a Mayorga Maduro Torp. Inexpensive and tasty and never fails to satisfy. Paired up again tonight with some WTRB, neither overpowers the other and is a great way to end the day and at the same time not break the bank.

    Smoking my first CAO tonight. The OSA sol line has been very nice to me and a beautiful night to boot.

    Honestly, I don't know what the general consensus is here pertaining to Rocky Patel cigars... but, the Fifteenth Anniversary that I just smoked was absolutely incredible. Now granted, I haven't smoked too many cigars. The Fifteenth Anniversary was just perfect. Second best cigar I've smoked after the Padron 1964 Anniversary Exclusivo. Just creamy, chocolatey and mellow in my opinion. I will definitely be going back to pick up a few more of these once I get the humidor up and running!

    Not sure about general consensus either, but I have liked everything I have smoked by him.
