Partagas P.2 - just got it yesterday from the Czar. i know it isn't recommended to smoke directly after shipping and should have let it rest for a week, but i couldn't help myself... and my impatience was rewarded. Glorious cigar.

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. 

Because of my poor result in the blind tasting competition I have to widen my smoked brands. So, today I lost my virginity to Vegas Robaina by smoking a little over one year old Famosos.

A strong cigar. Two thirds were very tasty with nuts, chocolate, fresh hay, pepper and cherry. The end was full of ammonia, have to give the rest a little time. If I count out the ammonia I have to say that I liked this very much!

Continuing my journey of introducing myself a formerly non-smoked cigar. Today it was a H. Upmann Magnum 46. Based on the band I guess it's from -06 or around.

Cold scent a bunch of roses, nice. A very mild plain tobacco taste almost through the whole cigar getting only a little stronger towards the end. Until the second half of the last third the cigar was quite boring. But then all of a sudden started the fireworks. WOW! An enormous amount of different flavours you can imagine a cigar can give were followed after each other ending to a bonfire. Geez, what a Grand Finale! Made me very happy!

While I have never really been the biggest fan of the "Daily Smoke" thread... I have to say how great it is that so many are now including pictures of cigars as the take their journeys.

So for the extra trouble it takes to snap a pic and post it along with the comments, I say "bravo" and thank you! -Piggy

Smoked my first HDM - 'Des Dieux' and it was much better than what I was expecting based off a couple other HDMs I've had. It came from box 'LAG - MAY-10'

Hey Brad how are those smoking young? Med to full? Flavors?

I'd say medium. I'm picking up roasted nuts and coffee mainly at the moment. I'm not an expert on flavors however. Pres picked this box out - psp. Awesome oils on the wrapper too.

Partagas P2 from Dec. '05. Only the second out of this box. The first one which was quite a while ago, was pretty bland as I recall.

Not this one. This one was rich with a lot of leather and dark earth flavors. Very tasty.

This is a day in advance but I'll be heading down to Canberra tomorrow for a mate's birthday, and I certainly won't be empty-handed. I haven't met a lot of the folk that will probably be there, but I'll fill up my 15-count Cigar Caddy and see what happens. My mate and I will definitely be having one, and I somehow doubt 13 others will step up to the plate...but we'll see.

As it's my only near-full cabinet, I'll be taking Por Larranaga Petit Coronas. Not a bad introduction for those who've never had a Cuban cigar before, methinks. Does seem like a pretty generous party contribution from someone who is only working casually. I'll actually be impressed if I don't bring any of them back home with me. :)

"Don't be intimidated; it's only a CC." - "Ah...maybe next time."

Soft.

Montecristo A, MPE FEB10.

Another previously non-smoked cigar today. It's a loooooong cigar, but you already knew that.

One word to describe the cigar: EXCELLENT! Or if that's not enough then: BRILLIANT!

- The best big cigar I have ever smoked.

- The best Montecristo I have ever smoked.

Smoking time exactly three hours, and that's a lot of time for a cigar. If you haven't smoked this yet, do it!

A wonderfully mild afternoon on my "deck" Light breeze, good book and a cigar whose ash could withstand a tiny earthquake.

Nice weather today in Toronto. Time for BW to light up. :) I pulled out a Diplo 2 from 2008. Such a great cigar. Initial tannins, with some bitter finish, moving along to leather, coffee and something sweet (couldn't nail the taste). By the middle of the 2nd/3rd, pepper, nuts, leather and creamy smoke took over. I nubbed this one and it really paid off. That sweetness I was getting revealed itself to be very "vanilla - like". I can't even do justice to it as I write. Such glorious range on this beauty.

Padilla Lancero around lunch, followed by a Partagas SP2 POL OCT10 this evening.

The Padilla was delightful and the SP2 is decidedly young, but still has a good bit of character. Seems to lack depth of flavor complexity yet.
