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

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

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.

@havanaclub how was its progression? 


It’s was very good. To be honest I was a little disappointed in the first 5-10 mins then it opened up with nice coffee, citrus and sweet hay notes. Construction was impeccable.

I am so obsessed with the flavor of this cigar.
Weather is so bad this weekend.
And most cigar club does not open on Sunday.
I had the Robusto Supremos in the club on Saturday, and smoked one Cohiba Maduro Secretos in the bathroom again today.

Love the Maduro Secretos.
Just too pricey for me.
I do usually pick a few up if I come into some extra money on rare occasions

My "smoking lounge" is running out of room for me.  We are remodeling our master bath, so the garage is filled with tiles and a big soaking tub.

It is always challenging to pick a birthday cigar.  It is a birthday, so I dont want to smoke something that I smoke all the time.  At the same time, it is not a major birthday, so I don't want to smoke anything too rare or special.  

This UAO SEP 17, Talisman seemed appropriate.

Happy Birthday!! Seems like a great cigar for the occasion. Enjoy! 🥳

I can sympathize with your remodeling issues.  We just finished remodeling our entire house and the contractors were pissed that I wouldn't let them use all the space in the garage.  I had to carve out my own area and told them it was off limits to them.

Yep works great in the garage. Was in the balcony this morning in the sun; much more civilized 😂. Looking forward to the baseball season and getting back in the deck to watt with a cigar.

I wish I can have a garage to smoke in it.
Haven’t tried talisman yet, how is it?

Yes, all Cohiba Maduros are great, especially aged ones. I also like aged Patargas Maduros.
All Cohiba are a bit pricey now.
Luckily, because I do not drink, I can have some extra money to buy cigars.

Some boxes have been absolutely phenomenal, and others not as good.  In general, the lighter they are, the better they are.  This one is close to phenomenal, but not quite there.  Maybe in the "very good" category.

Is that Por Larranaga a Montecarlos?

I have recently been dipping my toe into the smaller rg cc's and really enjoyed the Montecarlos.  Have always been leary of the smaller rg's having tight draws, but that hasn't been the case so far.

I would definitely say its worth it to pick up a box and find out for yourself.  I personally love the size and know others do as well.  While it is possible to get a restricted draw on a PLMC (like any other cigar for that matter) i have had far more well rolled ones than poorly.

thanks @StogieSteve23 for this 2015 Picadores great smoke 

Tat event exclusive for Mardi gras 

Glad you enjoyed it.  Its actually a 2014 original release stick (not that it makes too much of a difference ha) but maybe if you've smoked others with similar age. Possibly better or worse? 

How was that Tat? Shrunken Pumpkin?

You can say whatever you wanna say about the maligned Mag 46 BRE OCT 18. 

First one I smoked from the box was great.  Hopefully the rest are as well.

Thank you.

We did most of the house last year, but it was during the warm months, so the garage wasn't an issue like it is this time.  

We are actually early in the process of adding a 3rd garage onto the house.  If it gets approved by the town, I will build it with cigar smoking in mind.  I plan to add a loft, where I will build a smoking lounge, with fans blowing to the outside, and a big industrial-type air filter like they have in commercial smoking lounges.

Happy birthday.
 

Hope your plans get approved!  Very important to have a good smoking location at the ready. We hopefully break ground in a month or two on a covered porch w a crapton of infrared heaters. Lots of ceiling fans. Best part is my wife still thinks this addition is for her.

Both were good. The picadors was better 😉. Thank you
