    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    Had a Cohiba Siglo I. Friend brought a bottle of Templeton Rye. Not a favorite of mine, particularly given the shady back-story. But it was an enjoyable break after a rough day.

    A "lost in the humi special"... one of those unbanded sticks you find in the humi and have no idea what it is.... this one was OK... but I suspect a DR with way too much age on it.

    Oliva serie G with my OWA. it was a slow starter but is really getting good halfway through. Still not quite a short story to me.

    Oliva has always been hit or miss (usually miss) for me.

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    Today I enjoyed a Rocky Patel Royal Vintage and a glass of Jim Beam Black with water. A very nice combo that brought out a lot of flavors in both the cigar and the drink.
    The Royal Vintage was a great smoke. Iv had many Rocky Patels but this was the first Royal Vintage and it was a solid 8.9 out of 10. Very nice stick, great flavor, lots of thick smoke, easy draw, and typical perfect burn from and structure from a Patel. Got it from cigar.com and recommend it strongly.

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    Didn't have much time for a smoke today, but really wasn't in the mood for the Bolivar Especial #5 that is usually my go to in such situations. So I dug in deep and found an old Montecristo 4 x 44. It was a short run product at the time (though apparently now it is a regular), that was on special at JR Cigars and I had purchased a couple of boxes of this little gem after trying one at the store.

    Not particularly strong, it is a smooth draw easy smoke, with lots of chocolate and leather taste. We used to call these little things Tootsie Rolls back then, and smoking this I remember why. I don't know if the newer runs are still made (or taste) the same, but now I want to find out.

    Since this was during yard work today, rather than bourbon it was paired up with Mayorga Roastmaster's Blend Coffee.

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    I had problems with my previous bottle of FR1B pairing well with cigars but the '10 bottle i picked up today has found a friend with this Perdomo Noir . Very happy ending to a Monday .
