    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    I don't understand the 5V haters. Is it an excellent cigar, maybe not. But they are solid, and inexpensive especially when purchaded on CIs daily deal with free shipping. I'd love to drink Pappy 20 and smoke Opus Xs everyday, but that just isnt going to happen. Most days it is a 5V and some BT or OWA.

    I had 3 different vitolas of the 5V gold. Completely tasteless. Might as well have rolled up some writing paper.

    So since I value taste as a quality I feel like my money is wasted when I buy them.

    In my experience the 5V Golds and Reds are more like Beam White than BT or OWA.

    I do like the 5V A and I have 3 of the 5V AAA coming to try. I thought the 5V Miami were ok, I'm just not into smoking black pepper as a predominant flavor.

    Had my first 5V Gold tonight, bought in a sampler from CI, along with some WSR. Unfortunately, both were mediocre.

    Tonight I am having a Fuente Hemingway Short Story with several pours of Four Roses Small Batch.

    I just placed an order for a box of Hoyo De Monterrey Excalibur Maduro Robusto's. I have only had one of the Excalibers before so I am looking forward to August 3rd when they will be delivered.

    Today I placed an order with CI for their Gurkha Cigarnivore III sampler. It contains 18 different Gurkha sticks. It should also arrive on the 3rd.

    Tonight I'm having a Fuente 858 with some AAA 10 y/o.

    Yesterday I had a Oliva Serie V Lancero

    Tonight it was CAO Gold Maduro Corona

    I prefer the Oliva. The CAO is not bad, just not as rich.

    My orders arrived safe and sound. I am having a three finger pour of Devil's Cut with a Gurkha Titan. Great way to close out the night.

    Tonight became one of those nights. Second cigar 5V classic 555, and a large quantity of ORVW 10/90.
