looks great! how was the vigia? get that nice buttery note? .......do you ever just wet and twist the pigtail off? it actually makes for a really nice draw on those..i find cutting them like that opens the draw too much and a lot tend to be really open and sometimes underfilled..thoughts?

Monte Dantes 2016.  I know these don't get a lot of love here but I really like them. Construction, smoke output and flavors always spot on for me.

There was a box up tonight on Bond Roberts that I just missed!  Maybe next time...

I like Dantes alright, just not everyday ... ?

BTW : we seem to have a similar ashtray, like it.

It's a great ashtray!  I have to admit I got the idea from @FatherOfPugs!

It delivered those cedary, coffee, nuts & earthy notes. Vigia has always been flavorful. To have those buttery or creamy notes, I believe it needs more age to come thru(4-5 years of age). My previous box from 2015 (SUE MAR15) blew me away with those notes. Trying my best to keep my hands off for now. 

I agree with the really open draws like what you said. I use a punch mostly on Vigia due the said reason. Sometimes straight cut if I couldn't find my puncher. Maybe I'll try twisting the pigtail the next time.
