My Father Le Bijou 1922 Torpedo.

I have this exact one in my cart to try out with my next order. Always gets rave reviews, so figured I should finally try one

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.

TOS 17 PLP

Had this in the middle of the day …figured it was so hot I didn’t wanna take a chance wit a fancier smoke and thought this would be at least pleasant, to my surprise it was just so damn good …idk if it was the moment of relaxation that elevated it, but in that moment it was just perfect …. 


Fast forward to now, I’m smoking this TRU 18 rio seco …..lord have mercy if this isn’t the best damn blend on the market rn idk what is ….am I spoiled with this OR box just being “on”? Idk but I hope all my recent production boxes end up being this good ….just ridiculous

Anyway, happy Father’s Day all

I picked up this specific cigar just because of your love for it.  Will revisit tomorrow.  Hope things are well, brosephino!

Not too bad. All 3 I have had unfortunately can’t seem to stay lit. Humidor fine all other cigars fine, these just seem to go out all the time which doesn’t help with the experience. The first third was great, the remainder didn’t want to burn well.

Smoking a Monte puritos with my dad in Montreal with the HC smoky.
Old white band puritos. Not sure when ICT switched to the gold bands. Very strong and spicy.
Might light up a Monte 2 in a bit.

Edit: Monte 2. Forgot my BR cutter and couldn't find another one so used a Cuban cut on a figurado for the first time. Working ok.

I recently went through a couple boxes of the monte puritos as my after lunch smoke, and the gold band ones sound like they haven't changed anything but the band at some point.

Definitely strong and spicy, but not too much so.

Great little after meal quick smokes for the price.

Have more, along with the RyJ Puritos and Partagas Chicos in my cart for my next cc order.

Let me know what you think of the 2012 Espy.  And it may or may not be your cup of tea either.  We all have different palates, and that is OK.
There is a difference between liking it, and recognizing it's uniqueness.  That is all I was trying to say.

I certainly have high hopes for the Espy.

They seem pretty universally loved, and have 9 years on it, so in theory it should be excellent.

Have learned through the roughly 20 vintage and aged smokes I have had so far that I dont really "get it" when it comes to how most people feel about aged sticks.

For the most part I just haven't found them particularly special, just different, and not any better than recent production of the same sticks.

With the vast majority I have actually preferred the recent production better.

Perfect example of your statement about different palates and different likes.

I'm sure I'm in the extreme minority with this

MC #4
Partagas Short
RA Small CC
Enjoying these short smokes. Love how the flavor profile is different in all of them. 

I don't really buy many short smokes, as the always end so quickly, I'm left craving more.

I do keep MC #3 and 4 one hand, as I don't really consider them a short smoke as they last me about 45 minutes if I make sure I control my smoking pace.

Also do love the Partagas Shorts and RASCC too.

Pretty well covers all the only short smokes i buy, except for the occasional few Reyes and El Principe, as they are the tastiest short smokes in my humble opinion

 This couldn’t be more true …..siglo II is not even in the same realm as these others mentioned …..the II is more similar to a Cosho than a VI IMO

I did used to smoke a lot of CoRos and Siglo VI's back when I was working in the oilfields for Halliburton and was making ridiculous money with the roughly 40 hours a week of overtime every hitch.

But that was about 10 years ago. Now I'm on a fixed income with my navy pension and after paying the extreme rent to live here in the veteran's home, I just can't afford to get CoRos often, and haven't bought a Siglo VI in about 10 years.

I recall them being exceptionally tasty though.

Saturday's Smoke Partagas D5

Sunday smoke, Por Larranaga Picadores LGR NOV 18

Nice. Have smoked a fair number of the D5's lately as my regular vendor was giving free 3 packs of them with every order over a certain amount, so ended up with a fair number of them.

Just as tasty as the D4, just a little shorter. Still plenty tasty

Love the Picadores. One of the very few smokes i keep more than 2 or 3 of in my stock.

Medio Siglo UTL MAY 18

What do you think of these?

I have been tempted to get a couple a number of times when I'm making an order, but haven't pulled the trigger yet due to cost mainly, but also not a big Petit Robusto fan.

I hear a lot of good things about these from many different people, so planning to try and get a couple in a private sale in the future

Monte #4 BEO JUL 16 and RyJ Churchill UEB SEP 19 - Really enjoyed the Churchill. Excellent choice for a lazy afternoon. Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there.

I was a little underwhelmed with the couple of RyJ churchill's I've had.

They were only decent to me, but didn't live up to the price for them in my opinion

First time with RyJ Churchill’s. So I did two days 1 each day. Top is from a Tubo, bottom from a dress box. Very similar flavors but the dress won the fight. Also had a crazy good ash. Will be buying a box.

very nice! ......sort of to the point, i have been more interested in smoking more of the same cigar if it performs well than picking another for the sake of variety .......i used to be all about smoking different things, but now once i have something that's "on" i try to stick with it for a few days ........glad to see you had 2 good ones in a row
