This Week In Smokes

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.

Another look

Retail on the box said $50.

This Week In Smokes

Well it’s been a pretty slow week for smoking, I have been fighting a cold and I didn’t want to chance ruining my smokes do to my illness.

But fear no my loyal readers for I do have SOMETHING to post about.

Over at the CigarAsylum they had a contest for the longest ash, and another for the biggest fail (meaning pics of the destruction of your ash) I submitted these, I don’t remember the 1st cigar, I believe it was a Diesel Unholy Cocktail. Anyway I had about an inch and a 1/2 on it and this happened:

This was on Friday I believe, Saturday I listened to KissMyAshRadio and I won a $50 gift certificate for answering a movie trivia question, they play a clip of a movie and you guess which one it is….mine was True Romance.

Here is what I purchased with my GC:

The sticks are:

  1. My Uzi Weighs A Ton
  2. CAO Brazilia Amazon
  3. Tatuaje Anarchy (exclusive from SmokeInn.com who also do the radio show…I was actually told to get a 5er of these, that alone was $49.99 and since I am still new to cigars and want to try everything under the sun I opted for 2 of these)
  4. Liga Privada Undercrown (these are new and everyone is raving about them)
  5. Kristoff Sumatra ( I freaking LOVE Kristoffs, I haven’t had this brand yet, so I had to try it)

Not too bad eh?

Sunday while at the inlaws I thought I would try the contest again, this time it was with a Gurkha the last Gurkha if you recall bored me to tears, this one was MUCH better.

As you can see I got more ash on this one, but still not enough to win, I believe the winner had a 3.5 inch and the destruction ended up on his chest, crotch and leg. no pics of my destruction, and I easily beat 3 inches, but my phone died and I couldn’t take the pic

Monday I received a package as part of a trade, I gave the guy some 6 finger slot bags and in return he gave me…….some CUBANS….shhhhhh……check it out and watch the drool, I had to

Included are:

  1. Partagas
  2. Ramon Allones
  3. Padilla Corojo Torpedo
  4. Camacho Quinto Corte Torpedo
  5. LA Herencia Oscuro Fuerte
  6. Padron 1964 Anniversary Series Box Press Lancero

He told me to watch out for the Camacho, because it might kill me and the Padilla is from 2006 and smoking very nice right now.

No smoking from Sunday till Yesterday, I couldn’t take it I was Jonzin’ for a cigar so I lit up one that I wasn’t familiar with, but also wasn’t in in hurry to smoke, boy did it suck too. It was Puros Indios Torpedo and it just tasted bad and left a bad taste in my mouth.

Today I tried again and with the wife’s advice to try one I have had before so I had a Cusano 18 Double Connecticut Robusto and it was great….no pics…suffer.
