Just finishing a Juan Lopez Seleccion #1 from Oct 07. Wow what a good cigar. Once again, FoH has steered me in the right direction. Couldn't be happier with the smoke.

As always, I will agree 500% on the SLR Regios. It seems like the more sickly green/gray the wrapper, the better.... ?

Spot on !LOL! These Regios looked like they were hit with the ugly stick.

We did a review of a visually beautiful Regio back in May which was very very tasty. Yesterdays were not as good ...but not far short.

In the last week I smoked;

Bolivar Royal Coronas

Cohiba Robustos

Partagas Series D #4

Vegas Robaina Famosos

Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure #2

Saint Luis Rey Regios

Cohiba Maduro Genios

All were great smokes, all were 08 except the Partagas D4...06 and the SLR Regios...01 and the wrapper

looked good, a light dull brown. The best out of this bunch was the Cohiba Robustos , much improvement from the last one I smoked. (maybe from a different box) followed with a tie between the Partagas and the Saint Luis Rey.

01 Ramon Allones 898. Medium, cake, wood, nutmeg, cinnamon, stewed fruit. Cream and white pepper in final third. VERY long finish. 95

08 Ramon Allones Gigantes. Just under medium progressing to medium full. Straight up stewed fruit with just a touch of spice until the final third when it started to show a little more complexity with the usual RA flavors. 89

I had 2 sensational smokes this week.

Cohiba 2006 LE. This is probably the best smoke I have had in years. I happened to be reading the forum and kept running across comments of this cigar. So, I decided I would finally break open my box and have one. Wow! Just a delicious spicyness, that kept on getting better and better as I smoked the cigar down. Phenominal!

The next day Cohiba was still on the mind so I broke out a Siglo VI. Feb 08 I believe. A really great smoke with all of the expected Cohiba flavors, spice, leather, cream.

I never wanted to fall for Cohibas because they are so damn expensive! But, I find myself stuck on them. They are so tasty!

The rest of the week was filled with the usual suspects. Mostly Petite Corona's and Half Corona's from Punch, PL, and JL.

Opus X Robusto *shrug*

update: yikes, it was horrible (overwhelming white pepper thru the nose, building burnt rubber on the palate). 1/4 way through I ditched it, went to grab something, saw a Quintero and laughed to myself thinking "even that has to be better that the Opus", and sure enough it was. Granted, not "good" per se, but better.

Friday I had a RASS from 07. The draw was pretty loose which lost much of the flavor although not terrible.

Saturday I had SLR petite corona from 03. Smoked this while tailgating for the University of Arizona's homecoming vs Washington State. Great construction and very smooth cigar. I'm disappointed it was my last one.
