This may or may not be a recurring thing I do, hell I can’t even keep up with the simple FAVORITE TUNES FRIDAY or anything interesting to post, but I will see.
My boy Jason on http://www.themindslam.com told me I should write about cigars and post pics since I am taking him under the wing of this fine art…..he has since flown the coop and reverted back to dip…..I understand why, it’s cheaper.
So, anyway this week in smokes.
I will start on 10/28/11 my buddy took me to a local Cigar shop that I had never been to before or as referred to as B&M (which stands for Brick & Mortar) this place was aptly named THE CIGAR BOX, we went on our lunch hour.
I picked up a LA GLORIA CUBANA & a SAN CRISTOBAL
I went to a local club on Saturday 10/28/11 and I brought with me a CARLOS TORANO FORTRESS, LGC and SAN CRISTOBAL.
I smoked the TORANO and loved it, great medium to full flavors, and it had a hefty Ring Gauge, afterwards I dove into the LGC about an hour later and I really didn’t enjoy it, it might been because I still had the TORANO on my palate…I haven’t written them off entirely, I will try them again.
I couldn’t get to the San Cristobal I was a little drunk and I really wanted to enjoy it….I mean just look at that band…Beautiful
I smoked the SAN CRISTOBAL on Halloween while given out candy to the kiddies, this was a FANTASTIC smoke, lots of great flavor and I had no burn issues.
Tuesday I had a TATUAJE VEROCU #5 which was gifted to me by a friend from http://www.CIGARASYLUM.COM
I have not had a TAT I didn’t like and this one was no exception.
On Wednesday I received this package in the mail it was given to me as part of a trade (I gave him some 5 finger slot bags for his cigars) and in return he smacked me with these goodies.

Thursday I went to my 1st Cigar Event held by a local B&M (not the same one) this one is called the PIPE PUFFER they had a representative from GENERAL CIGARS and had free refreshments and of course cigars, but you had to buy 3 to get 1 free or buy 7 to get 3 free.
