I like a "Punch" as I tend to get less "tobacco" in my mouth and I think its a shame to waste that triple cap! Curious what everyone else uses? Tried to do a "poll" but never could get it to work.
Last night I bought a Vegas Robaina Familiares from 1999. The draw was too tight for my liking. Silly question, but is there anything to look out for when you buy the stick that would indicate a tighter draw. I always feel that I am overstepping the boundaries when I pick up cigars in the shop.
A few nights ago i sat down to watch a few episodes of Stranger Things from Netflix ( great show!) and of course had a few cigars. first one was a Trini Robusto T from 2010. when i did a cold draw, it was very loose...i mean you could almost compare it to sucking on a straw!! anyway i lit it up reminding myself to take fewer puffs to let it cool before taking the next one. this helped a bit but even doing that the smoke was just ok. you just couldn't get those nuance flavors because it still burned to hot even taking fewer draws. i still was able to smoke 3\4 of it before putting it to rest. Now i was really looking forward to my second cigar, a SCLH Mercaderes from 2007! but when i took a cold draw on that one it was really firm! so firm that my first thought woulls be that i'd have to pitch it! anyway, once lit thought, i was surprised that it was actually drawing, firm and had to work at it a bit but still ok. and to my surprise the cigar was actually full of flavors! i could get so much nuance flavors because of the firm draw...the cigar just stayed cool all the way through. pure cake and sweet nuance flavors that just got deeper as i smoked through it. amazing really! great cigar. Quite an experience from opposite ends! Anyone else have a similar experience ? Steve
