No cigar today.   I had a bowl of Scotty's Butternut Blend in my Barling bent, and a bowl of Lane RLP in my classic cob.

I just started piping about a month ago.  I'm not giving up cigars.  I like cigars with friends, and the pipe when I'm studying or otherwise alone.  I'm trying not to get to far down the slope with pipes, though.

I have to correct my last post.  I ended up staying up unreasonably late and had a Flor de Oliva lonsdale with about one year of rest.  Those things are just about perfect now.  Flavor reminded me of a Hemingway Short Story.  The wrapper even had that lightly spiced touch of sweetness like the Hemingway cigars have.  A great cigar, should cost twice as much as they're charging.

ok, well it's just us posting I guess. Heres my tally for today, started at the shop with a hansotia park avenue 44, then a padilla golden bear. went home, came back to the shop, smoked a LFD DL-700 then a CAO LX2 lancero, then a CAO america, oh and also a Tatuaje SW maduro in there somwhere. (I'm in the habbit of keeping my bands in my pocket, and yes, on occasion I have to smoke a perdomo fresco as you can see, unfortunately they float to the top I guess). Tom

Cool! That's what I had this morning on my long-ass drive to work (San Antonio to Austin). Just the right strength for me this morning--even went well with the Diet Coke I had with me.

Will have to remember to post my review later when somebody isn't paying me to do something else.

Man, I've only had the Park Avenue out of that top group.

I love the process of emptying out my day's worth of bands from my pockets. Sometimes the shorts I wear before bed end up with several days' worth of bands, which probably means I should have more than one pair of shorts (or I should wash them more often).

I started the day with a Gispert Corona. A little too mild for my taste, almost like a 5 Vegas Gold Light and about halfway through it started needing near constant puffing to stay lit.

Shortly thereafter, I smoked what I think was a La Vieja Habana Rothschild Luxo, going by the description in the database. All the band said was La Vieja Habana. A buddy gave it to me about a month ago and said it had been in his humi "forever". I enjoyed it much more than the Gispert.

I'm not sure what's next, but when I woke up this morning I said to myself "Self, I think this is a four or five cigar day!"

Last night, at a small party on my girlfriend's roofdeck here in Boston, two cigars with a fellow cigar smoking friend: first, a '00 Bolivar Corona Extra, then a DPG JJ maduro belicoso. Probably because it was well aged, the Boli CE was complex and much more subtle than the more recent Boli's I've smoked. The DPG JJ was my end of the night dessert smoke, bold, rich, and spicy. Yum.

Today, just finished a Montecristo Afrique Jambo. My first Monte Afrique, a nice twist on the original. Hoping to get in another smoke before the night's over.

Cigar #3 for me today was a Cu-Avana Intenso Toro. WOW! Strong and unrefined is the best description I can give, like being kicked in the chest by a mule when you think you're petting a goat. I loved it. I'm gonna eat leftover Chinese takeout and end the night with something nice...maybe one of those flavored Drew Estate Tabak Especial flavored jobs ...

Busy-assed weekend for me.   Friday night I went to a herf and had a Acid Extra Ordinary Larry.  this is a monster 60 ring cigar.  Unfortunately, the wrapper started to unravel the moment I snipped the cap.  That coupled with the giant ring caused a draw problem, felt like the cigar had a hole in it.  I smoked about 2/3 of it anyway. 

Saturday I went for a short (150 miles) ride in the rain with some friends.  Later in the evening smoked a Victor Sinclair Serie 55 Yellow (cameroon) chiselfecto.  The flavor on this cigar is good, but mine was nearly plugged--like sucking a golf ball through a garden hose.

I really wanted to follow that up with a standard Punch, but needed to get to bed---big day coming up Sunday!

Pretty far down the slope, actually -- especially if that Barling Bent is pre-transition.

I had to take a couple of my girlfriend's friends to the airport this morning before work, so I refrained from smoking with them in the car. I think one of them said to smoke if I wanted to, but I try to do everything right when it comes to non-smokers because when I was young, cigarette smoke assaulted my senses...

Anyway, NO smoke today so far--I really wish I had a petite something or other so I could sit outside and puff during lunch break.



However, yesterday's first smoke was about the most perfect morning smoke I've had in a long time--a La Aurora 2nds robusto. I bought a bundle a couple of months ago and the first I tried was just decent.
However, this one seemed much better and went with my Latte extremely well as I sat on the patio during the early morning hours before the temp climbed over 100. AGAIN.
