  1. It's an unfortunate mix up ( I would go so far as to say a mistake), that effectively puts me out of the running for the competition, but I don't for a second think that there was any intent to mislead. I'm grateful for the community, and for a wonderful vendor.

  3. I found #3 unbalanced, with a fair amount of bitterness, and a lot of youthful tanins. I'm trying to taste through that, and taking my best guess based on some familiar flavors...
  4. Ok, so it's "Dead & Company yesterday in history," but did anybody attend/stream last night's show in Camden, NJ? The second Set was an awful lot of fun to listen to. Much better than the tour opener we were at in Mansfield, MA the other night
  5. Not if I had all the money in the world.
  6. And I too would recommend it. It's one of the first books I read at the recommendation of the folks at Zen Mountain Monastery in Mount Tremper, NY some 20 years ago. I once had a very regular, twice daily practice...it's much more sporadic these days. It brought and still brings a great deal of calm and focus to my life.
  7. Rotation

    I agree. I think of it as choosing from the pool of what I have on hand that I like and is ready to smoke.
  8. Calle Ocho for Cafe Cubano and a locally rolled cigar. El Titan de Bonze is an interesting small cigar factory.
  9. Blind Tasting Cigar Number 2 Reveal

    That was a very enjoyable smoke, but RASS was far from my mind, and I was pretty confident in my Bolivar guess. It really was a robusto, with a significant box press. Wrapping a piece of thread around the cigar, then measuring the thread showed this to be the case.
  10. A fine choice. And a fine acceptance.
  11. Really not a fair question. What I like is really circumstantial/mood based. I went for what circumstances/mood draw me to most often: Savoury Spice, Coffee/Toast, and nuts. (though earth tends to come along with most of these). But there are times when I go in a very different direction,
  12. Cigar Books

    I pored over MRNs book for hours and hours and hours when I first got it. Haven't taken it off the shelf in years, yet wouldn't part with it for twice the price on Amazon.
  13. I would consider a box of PLMC. Very tasty, but not a huge strain on your wallet...someone who doesn't smoke cigars is almost certain to take a few puffs and toss your gift.
  14. Cigar #2 Started out with a vague cold aroma of tea and caramel. It appeared underfilled and squishy, thought upon cutting, the draw was just shy of where I like it. Cold draw had notes of salt, tea and paper. When put to the torch, it brought me on a pleasurable journey of consistently building body and flavor. There were notes of sweetness, earth, cocoa, pepper and cream, and a hint of fruit here and there. I feel surer of my guess on this than I did on #1. Which probably means I'm wrong.
