Let’s get right to it, because this was a big smoke week for me.
Monday I had a FELIPE DOMINICANA TORPEDO I rated it a 4 out of 5….not box worthy, but definitely a five pack worth or if someone gifted it to me I would smoke it again right away.
Tuesday I had a 5 (or Cinco) VEGAS TRIPLE A SERIES…..these are slowly becoming my go to smoke, rated a 5 out of 5, just a great smoke, would love to have a box of these. I had this with some Glenlivet Scotch Whiskey…..very nice combo.
Wednesday I went to my new smoking buddy and I already posted pics, but it’s worth a 2nd look, BOLIVAR MADURO very mild than I was expecting, but a damn fine smoke 4 out of 5…..5 pack would be nice.
Thursday was a no smoke day, I had a family event to go afterwards just came home and watched the Thursday night line up on T.V.
Friday back at it with an ALEC BRADLEY AMERICAN CLASSIC BLEND a 4 out of 5 so again another 5 pack of these would be nice. I had this with some Sailor Jerry Rum and coke in the pic they are sitting atop some awesome coasters a member from Cigarasylum.com sent me from a trade.
Here is a closer look at the coasters, as you can tell are made out of cigar bands, very very cool gift.
I have tried several different times and still that pic above keeps coming up upside down, so I apologize, I guess you will just have to stand on your head.
Saturday was a BIG smoking day for me. Started off with an ACID ONE my 1st time I have had this one and let me tell you it is aptly titled. a 5 out of 5….yep box worthy!
Later I went to my buddies house and I met another guy there and he gave me my 1st Cuban in a Long LONG time this was a MONTECRISTO HABANA and it was delicious another 5 out of 5…..I actually nubbed this one it was so good.
Up next I had an ARTURO FUENTE ROSADO very good smoke, but I should have waited a little more to smoke it after the Monte, a 5 out of 5 it was just such a collision of flavors that I feel I couldn’t enjoy it as well as it should have been. Glad I have another in my humidor.
I left my buddies house and went to another friends house and we sampled some Jameson Irish Scotch Whiskey, while sippin’ my drink I lit up a NUB MADURO this is my 2nd NUB and once again it did not disappoint 5 out of 5
Last smoke of the night (that’s 5 all together people!) started out REALLY strong, it almost kicked my butt, but was on an empty stomach, so I took it slow, it was a DIABLO PICANTES 4 out of 5, would like to try again on a full stomach.
Sunday I went back to my buddies and he asked what I wanted out of his humi, I selected a LA FLOR DOMINICA DOUBLE LIGERO he was like Ohhhhh really? He kinda chuckled to himself and asked me “Have you eaten?” I had and I told him I had….not a full meal, but enough to satisfy me. This sucker was easily 9 1/2 inches long and it started out nice and smooth, by the end (and I couldn’t finish it, I still had about 3 inches left on it) I was feeling woozy and nauseous I texted him this when I got home and he just laughed at me lol. I give it a 4 out of 5, I would like to try a smaller size and on a much more full stomach lol.
Also last night he gave me an AMAZING gift, last Thursday when I was doing the family thang he was at a cigar event where you paid $80 and you received a 14 oz New York Strip Steak, free drinks and these bad boys.
That’s right, that’s an OPUS X and a JULIUS CAESER, I have never had a JC before, but the OPUS is an amazing smoke, I had my 1st a couple of months ago thanks to my brother-in-law.
Retail on the box said $50.
