No real big story tonight. Decided im going to have a BOTL gift smokes weekend. Tonight fired up a stick gifted by Alan while i was in London (cheers mate!). I've never tried this marca before, and have always wanted to.

SLR of some sort (Corona size).

Cigar had some nuts and pot purri type flavours. Some times a bit of fruit. The finish what i could only describe as a spray can taste. I guess this is what people associate to a metallic taste to cigars. It wasn't bad, it was just different to me, first time tasting that in a cigar. Cigar burnt perfectly for the whole innings. Do i like the marca? From this tasting, not so much. More of a toast and cream flavours man myself. Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity to try it Alan! Look forward to herfing it up with you boys again in a month or so.

And sorry West, no monkey porn to report tonight tongue.png

I could be mistaken but that looks like a serie A from SLR. It's too bad you didn't enjoy it because usually those cigars are really good. Don't give up on the marca LordAnubis because although SLR doesn't produce a wide variety, the few they produce can be excellent. Better luck next time! ok.gif

Alan will be able to confirm but I'm pretty sure they're the discontinued Coronas, he picked them up in Dubai duty free I think?

A PL RE Asia Pacific today thanks to Martin from London. Traditional cuban flavours. Nice cream and toasted tobacco. A bit of sweetness. Paired well with a sprite. Was a good smoke for cigar sunday while polishing the boots. Got a bit harsh towards the end but im guessing it's just a bit young. Good smoke none the less, thanks mate! Catch up soon.

And that SLR wasn't bad, it was different... it's just not my flavour of cigar. Just like Vegas Robaina, El Ray Del Mundo, RyJ and pretty much all non cubans aren't my type of cigar. To each his own. Was a great gift to try out anyway from a BOTL!

Well, I know its not 'today', but my wife and I are back from our 12month overseas stint. was awesome! 9 months in Scotland working in a whisky/cocktail bar, and then 3 months on the road in a camper doing the majority of western Europe. Had some great smokes on the road trip, thought I'd share some of the special ones and regionals.

A great Upmann Petit Robusto from the 2012 Travel Retail Selection, followed by one terrible Cuaba and a very nice Cuaba (Divinos, I think). The last one had a kind of perfumy lavender note but I really liked it.
