    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    I tired something new recently. Illusione. Have tried the MK, the F9 and the 888. I'm not one to try new cigars as I like my "go to" cigars and I stick with them. Well this line will go into the weekly rotation.

    Nice burn, good smoke.

    I myself smoked the Export blue on occasion but preferred DuMaurier for my regular pack. Players was also a stand-in at times. I also rolled Drum on occassion

This gives it characteristics of both an ale and a lager. It probably (before 1950 or so) was more malt-oriented and hoppier, but it is still a good product especially on draft. It has a characteristically earthy taste I find.

    I drank Molson Ex a lot growing up and also Labatt blue made regular appearances. Haven't had them in a long while....

    I'm still new to cigars but one of the best smokes I've had was the Oliva Serie V. It was also one of the strongest cigars I've had. My favorite as of late is the Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real Chruchill. Works great on the back porch during afternoon thunderstorms.

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    I'm not big on cigars, I know very little about them and usually don't find them to be all that good, but for some reason I do occasionally buy them and smoke them. Usually if I want a cigar it's because I smelled someone smoking one and it smelled great but when I get one, the same kind even, it doesn't smell as good. Anyway, I was at a beer convention yesterday and I picked up a Rocky Patel Robusto sampler pack for $20 and tried the Sun Grown later in the evening. When I went out to smoke I figured I'd smoke like a quarter of it, get bored, and put it out but I really couldn't put this one down once I started smoking it. It tasted excellent and smelled just like cigars smell to me when other people are smoking them. That was definitely a good hour! The only thing I didn't like about it was that I didn't think the bourbon tasted as good paired with a cigar.
    As I said before I know very little about these so I'm curious, is Rocky Patel a good brand of cigar?

    Toasted a Montecristo Petit Edmundo last night. Wow those are good. Unfortunately, no bourbon to go with it last night.

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    I just smoked one of my favorite quick smokes. Tatuaje's Angele. The burn is quite nice... a little hot towards the last 1/4 of the smoke, but it's a little guy. I believe mine is the east coast blend, as I'm in chicago. All and all, I fantastic cigar.
