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

... if you forced me to smoke 1 cigar for the rest of my life and that cigar was an E2 I would be pretty happy. 

Word. No doubt...

RAT DIC 19
These are coming along nicely. 311d2b03459d833cd9418d45a2b767ca.jpg
 

FANTASTIC combo here.  Love the Cabanas and 1792 is one of my favorite bourbons at the moment.  Got a couple free bottles from our event and holy sheeyt is it good.. Got a case of Eagle Rare at the same time and I honestly think the 1792 is better.  Some would call me crazy, but I know what I like.

Very happy to have F1 back. Dip 2 and the race

MZ, love the Dip 2.  What website/mobile platform do you watch F1 on?

A beauty Hoyo on the water this morning. Happy with this recent purchase!

Epi de Luxe = pure class.  Very underrated smoke IMO.

NICE! Good job Doc, I see you finally got a new glove.  Also glad to see its nice enough for you to chase the white ball around up there.

Punch Duke Exclusivo Mexico

This is more that just an Easter Smoke. Today would have been my Girlfriend's birthday. She passed away suddenly in September of 2019. She was born in Mexico

My condolences to you and you girlfriends family 😔🙏.  Great smoke to commemorate with.

ERDM CS - I'm craving a Cuban after smoking two NCs in a row 😂. Also this Choix Supreme is sadly a bit damaged around/behind the band. I always like to smoke the damaged or less good looking cigars first and save the best for later.

Sound philosophy

Alex custom Corona gifted to me by @kevpro at one of our little Chicago Habanos Society herfs back when such activities were allowed. Excellent stick. Thanks, brother!

I hear rumblings that the crew might be ready for a throw down sometime this summer. Stay tuned 😉

Great view! Glad you’re enjoying it!

I’m definitely ready for another Herf whenever it’s feasible again.

@cgoodrich Similar story here. I fell in love with the brand as a kid, my dad was a Porsche fanatic. Was finally able to pick up a ‘14 Cayman at the end of February and have already put 3k miles on the clock. Awesome cars and a fantastic brand.

Oh yes, I can recognise the issue with singles. Being based in Europe helps I guess but there are still some that seem harder to find in smaller quantities to try out

Yeah, very true.
I just found a vendor with singles of the Coronas junior, so at least I will be able to try one more out

Smoked 4 or 5 different robustos this weekend to try for a review and only the BRC was even close to acceptable. Must be me. Tonight starting with Rio Seco and it makes me want to throw rocks at all those robustos. Really enjoying this one.
 

Glad to hear you enjoyed the Rio Seco. Just ordered my first ones a couple weeks ago and waiting for them to arrive.
They seem to get good reviews, but seem to be somewhat unknown and obscure. Don't see them mentioned much

What Robustos did you smoke? Curious which ones you didn't enjoy as I'm a big Robusto fan. It's definitely my preferred vitola

Vigia. Mid 19 box date, not sure offhand. Possibly my favorite cigar.

I enjoyed the few vigias I have had but they are awfully pricey everywhere

I tried a CoRo, JL 2, BRC, and D4.  They all just tasted muddy and hot to me.  As I said in my post it may have just been me (due to weather, allergies, etc.) but the Rio Seco 2 days later knocked it out of the park.  I certainly wouldn't take my opinion of a single bad day of smoking as an indictment of the Vitola.  I'm pretty sure it just wasn't my day.

RyJ Exhibicion No.4
Excellent in every way as usual.
Probably my favorite RyJ, tied with the Belicosos

Considering picking up a few of these. Enjoyed a Belicoso recently too. Is the Exhibition profile a bit stronger and sweeter?

Weird, all consistently good Robustos for me with the exception of one dud CoRo recently. And mine have recently been only 2019 at the oldest

I would say that they are about the same in strength and haven't really noticed any sweetness in the EX #4, but I don't have the greatest pallet from being a 30 year cigarette smoker.
I think both are great smokes and very consistent in every regard

I still think Lusi’s might be the best example of Cuban Cigars.  It’s to me the standard bearer. Which is strange because it’s quite different than most other Marcas who most will share at least some similarities.  Wonder why that is.  I guess it’s because if I want to show an NC smoker what Cuban twang is, what better stick to represent?  Idk....just rambling...happy stupid Monday

interesting observation since the last Lusi i had was outstanding as well. Definitely a great blend and a high bar to meet.
