Let me know how the short stories are when you get around to them.

 

I've been thinking of picking up a few.

Short stories are magnificent.. unidimensional in flavor ( woody , sweet cedar and slightly spicy) but very enjoyable and relaxing. Strength is at max medium. Great 35 min NC smoke.. highly recommend it!

Thanks so much! Definitely going to pick some up.

With young twins 35 min is almost all my free time in a day!

Grabbed a box of lanceros from Herrera Esteli. I'm not sure if the typical blend lends itself well to a lancero or they have tweaked the blend for this edition, but it is a stunner. Recommend giving it a shot

That's because Willy's palate is next level when he's blending

Archetype Dreamstate Churchill. Davidoff factory made from Kelner farm tobacco. Great new brand I hadn’t tried before, but really enjoy now

I have been sampling the Archetypes since I can't resist crazy deals (Ventura's parent company is apparently dumping much of their product line--https://www.cigaraficionado.com/article/giannini-out-as-ventura-cigar-co-restructures) and I have been enjoying the Axis Mundi and the Fantasy Oliva maduros.

I recently had the Curses, from their Fantasy line, as well, and I was thoroughly impressed. Given the price, I can't really see any downside

Heath-O, TAA = Tobacconists' Association of America. Essentially, each year certain brands will put out a one off line of sticks under this licensing of the TAA name as a limited release cigar for that year.  Only certain retailers in the US are TAA retailers and carry these yearly cigars.  If you get a chance, give the TAA 2020 Tatuaje's a try. Fantastic smokes.  Slightly less full bodied than their normal blends in my opinion, more flavorful but still the same excellent construction as always.  

I bought two boxes of the Nat Sherman Pan America Epicure's recently and smoked the first one last week.  I liked it a lot.  The TAA's were somewhat one dimensional and very pleasant as an everyday smoke, but the PA's were a little spicier and more complex for such a small stick.

Purchased a couple of Atabey Brujos (Robusto) to see what all the hype was about...Foregoing all the nonsense about them being a "Stealth Cuban"...Not bad, but not a $30 stick either IMHO...Box-wise, my last purchase was a 10 count box of "Hit & Run" Corona Gorda.  This cigar is a collaboration between Room 101 & Caldwell.  Excellent Boutique smoke, Mild-medium, very floral and bright.  A mineral-almost graphite taste...Reminds me a bit of a young QDO 50...I don't buy or smoke much NC these days, but I'm always willing to smoke one that's not trying to murder me with spice.

I bought another box of Opus X Petit Lanceros (my NC of choice), and a box of Davidoff Ambasadrice, as well as a box of LFD Mueso from an auction.

Nice selection! I really the Paul Garmirian Anniversary collections and reserva exclusiva, have not yet tried the Soirée though. Saw the 30th anniversary came out recently, would like to give that a shot too.

Was thinking about picking up some of the Mil Dias as well, I have liked most of the Crowned Heads blends I have tried. Have you smoked one yet?

Thanks. They just came out .... I will rest a little and burn and report back. The people I know who smoked them said they were good but needed more time ...

Only 20 min from the PG shop. My fav of the PG is the 20th Anniv from 2010/2011. Their 2001 Maduro pretty good as well. I tried a couple samples of the 30th back in early spring. Thought they were good but still prefer the 20th.
