Well it has been a couple of weeks…..maybe longer since I have updated this topic on my blog, due to the revamping of the site, which took longer than expected…..so without further ado I will try to go by memory.
Sunday the 4th of Dec when the wifey went to church. I had a Partagas 10….. since the weather was nice a very good smoke 5 out of 5, haven’t had a bad Partagas yet.
I also decided to try a CAO Earth Nectar this was a flavored cigar, that wasn’t great and wasn’t bad…….would not buy another, but if someone gave me one I would smoke it. so a 3 out 5
On the 5th of Dec I received a very nice, thoughtful bomb from someone on http://www.cigarasylum.com I won’t go into the details, because that’s a whole nother blog that I don’t want to get into right now, here are the sticks:
- Diesel Shorty
- Bolivar Robusto
- Liga Privada Undercrown Gran Toro
- AVO Heritage Toro
- Perdomo Habano Maduro Robusto
The next day I received these beauties from another member of CA:
Included are 3 Gold 5 Vegas & 2 Gold Maduro 5 Vegas, + Cigar.com matches and advertisements.
On Tuesday the 6th I smoked my 2nd worst smoke (1st was the Gurkha European Selection) this one was the MAN O’ WAR Virtue, I actually pitched this after the 1st third…0 out of 5, will NOT smoke again.
On the 7th I received another bomb from a member of the CA this time was because I posted an “empty” pic of the TRUNKADOR….I don’t think so, but he felt obligated to bomb me anyway.
- Indian Tabac Maduro Boxpress
- Lot No. 826 Churchill Perdomo
- Nica Libre 1990 Churchill Boxpress
- Oliva “G” Series Boxpress Torpedo
- La Pearla Black Pearl Toro Torpedo Box Press
+ 5 pack of 5 Vegas Classic Maduro Robusto
That night I had a Cohiba ‘Red Dot’ this was my 2nd one I had ever had, and this one was 10x’s better than the 1st a def 5 out 5.
Saturday the 10th my mother threw a Christmas part and I took some smokes with me, 1st up is a no name brand….a member of CA decided to start rolling his own and he named it after his dog “Roxy” he graciously sent me one of his Maduro to try.
This cigar has the best smell of any cigar I have ever smelt and this was without even lighting it, just amazing and it smoked just as well. A def 5 out of 5
Next I had a Tatuaje……um sorry I forget which one, and my notes aren’t helping, but once again I have not had a bad Tat 5 out of 5
Next was the smoke of the night Liga Privada Undercrown, this was not from the one that was just bombed to me, this was one I won from KissMyAshRadio.com back in Oct. 5 out of 5
That bottle behind it? Yeah that’s what I paired it with….DELICIOUS!
On CA I submitted my MAW (Make A Wish) and a member sent these to fulfill my wish
- 601 Blue Maduro (wish)
- Old Henry Maduro (Wish)
- Liga Privada No. 9 (Wish)
- 601 Red
- Alec Bradley 1997 Harvest Selection
- Alec Bradley Select Cabinet Reserve
Also on the same day I received my 2nd prize from KissMyAshRadio.com (I won again!!!!!)
- 5er of Brickhouse
- 5er of Casa De Garcia
- 5er of E Doble
On Tuesdaythe 13th Marlon came over to my house and brought me a very nice stick…….a Davidoff Double R….now these are about $31 a stick…..def worth it, but I just can’t see myself buying a box anytime soon….too much, but still a 5 out of 5
Friday was our usual Herf at Marlon’s house he had some boxes come in this week and couldn’t wait to share some with me and Alan, so I just brought some cheap smokes with me, nothing special hell I didn’t even get to them. He gave me a Liga Privada Undercrown (because I had been raving about the one I smoked at my mom’s party he bought a box)
And one that’s quickly becoming a fav of mine Nat Sherman, this one was the Suave and yep 5 out of 5
Saturday I had some Christmas shopping and I stopped at the local B&M to buy for my Secret Santa on CA and Marlon met me up there, I bought a Macanudo 1968 & a Saint Louis Rey
Marlon also bought a Macanudo 1968 and we both smoked it, we both thought it was boring smoke a 3 out of 5
Afterwards Marlon handed me one he just bought (he bought 2 of these) a 601 Green Label MUCH MUCH better 5 out of 5 I am loving these 601’s.
Now a little something extra for you my readers, when Marlon came over I showed him my Trunkador set up and he said I should empty out my humidors and jut put my sticks in there by themselves…..so here ya go.
Ignore the temps, I had it open for awhile so the temp dropped, but all is good sitting at 72%!
