  1. HU Half Corona LMB JUL 18- first one out of this box. Good smoke- lot of bang for the buck.
  2. Tapados ARS ABR 18. Burn and draw spot on. A little one dimensional on the flavors but that's OK sometimes too. Still like the Mananitas better though.
  3. Partagas Serie D No.4 (49NRW) enjoyed to the very last puff with my bovine neighbors on a perfect fall day.
  4. My very first cigar review so we'll see how this goes. The decision as to which cigar to smoke for the review was pretty easy. I only have two options with a ring gauge bigger than 49 in my very modest newb collection so a mental coin flip came out in favor of this Partagas Serie D No. 4. It was given to me by one of my cigar buddies. So I don't know the box code or date. Prelight: Beautiful light hued wrapper with a nice firm roll. Just a little give when squeezed and nicely constructed. I went with a straight cut and was rewarded with a good cold draw, just a little resistance and a hint of spice. First third: Starts out woody with some baking spices. The retrohale is an awesome cinnamon. Reminds me of fresh home made cookies. One of my favorite starts to a cigar ever in my limited experience. Second third: Starts out the same but then the woody flavor goes away and is replaced with a tangy flavor. Not quite citrus, the word to describe it just kept popping in my head as zesty. I'm not sure that's a flavor but I'm calling it zesty anyway. Whatever it was, I loved it. The retro has morphed into a light pepper. Final third: The zesty is gone. Back to a woody flavor but a little bitter. But the retro is making up for it. Now it's a light caramelized sugar. As I peel the band off I'm already digging for my nubbing tool. I want to smoke this as long as it will go. Construction: Spot on. I'm a very slow smoker (burn time on this one was 90 minutes) so I struggle sometimes keeping a cigar going. This cigar suited my pace perfectly. No relights and every time I was ready for a puff, the cigar was ready too. Conclusion: I've only been smoking CC's for a little over a year. My usual smokes are more towards the Cheap & Cheerful range. So it's obvious to me I need to pony up the dough and start smoking a little better CC's. This cigar is most definitely on my ever expanding list of future box purchases. Score: 9 out of 10
  5. Keeping it rolling on the C&C's. HU Regalia BRE JUL 19. Not a bad little smoke for the $. This box has been spotty with some very tight draws but this cigar was very well behaved.
  6. I've avoided the news for many happy decades now. Anything that is really important will find it's way through my self-imposed filter.
  7. Welcome from a fellow greenhorn. Lots of great info here.
  8. El Principe. Perfect morning cigar. Nothing too complex, just below medium bodied,great draw and burn plus the freaking awesome flavors. Just sitting here posting this my mouth is watering. I'm gonna have to add another box to my stash.
  9. HU Regalia last night. Burn was a little uneven but overall a nice C&C.
  10. If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Then the definition of sanity must be, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the same results.- me
  11. Bonfire party and herf at my buddy Castro's (No- not related) house last night. Enjoyed some awesome Habanero Chili, great conversation , a Partagas MF and a HU #2.
