I have to fire up one of the Glorias soon - the two I had before were good, but not great. Here's a better picture of my pet snake.

She's a beauty!  Lampropeltis zonata.  You rarely see these guys above ground, they emerge in the spring when things warm a bit, they mate and then by mid summer are mostly underground again.  Believe it or not, people used to hunt these snakes pretty intensely for the pet trade, especially down here in SoCal.

I'm a little surprised by how docile it is, just hanging out in plain sight and posing for pictures.  Seems like a good smoking buddy!

An RE Friday with @Nate Chu C&C for a Saturday morning with this Sir Winston from 03. Today is going to be great if this cigar is anything to judge it by. What a super smooth star

From last night. Not Pictured: BRE Connie 1.. Great flavors.  Original Release Picadores: ULE NOV-14..  Flawless  RAT NOV-19 Dip 2. From 24:24 Not as salty as the dark wrappers. 

C&C ‘14 especiales. Fantastic start to the day C&C with a Monte 4 C&C time today with a Perla picked up from 24:24

Was given one of these golden Davidoffs the other day. Smokes very well, not as mild as much of their other stuff. Probably not worth whatever they cost but still not a bad cigar.

Another Johnny-O?

Yep. im letting most of my CC chill for a while. I have a box of 2014 PunchPunch that Im about to destroy when they settle for a few weeks. The others though, are so new and while I do enjoy them I can help but think they will get better with time. These...the Johnnys are nice now while fresh and cheap, considering. So...Im blazing them up.

How did you like it? I got a bundle and have smoke about 10 of them. I have loved them all. By far my favorite vitola from him

@boilers183 it was great, honestly. I lit it right out of the mail, could have used a day or two in the dry box. Very aromatic smoke coming off, great flavors and burn. Nothing to dislike honestly and I think they will age well. I plan to buy a bundle. I am not a fan of the flying pigs/solomons but the regular styles, corona/robustos/lancero are a win.

Edmundo with a murakami. Giving him a second try after mixed feelings reading 1Q84.

Please tell me that 1Q84 gets better.  I am about 25% and it is dragging for me.  I started it at the recommendation of some people on this site.

Completely agree. I've found them surprisingly consistent for customs, but I stay away from certain blends as well. When they are good, it's hard to beat their value/price.

RA Gorditos and an 08 Punch PC.  Or is it a del Punch?  Tasty whichever the case... :)

Tampa Sweethearts No 280.  Picked this up in Ybor in January.  The TS line is all rolled by Fuente's apprentice rollers. If you fall in love with a vitola and they aren't training a new apprentice, you're not getting them!!   It's a first for me....   I'll see how it goes.
