Random quote: "America when a man's word was his bond; when work was considered a privilege; when men looked to themselves and their own prowess for security; when tolerance was the spontaneous outcropping of natural friendliness, and when a man's worth was judged by the quality of his life."

ninfiction - 7/10/2018 11:15 PM Dam fine choice for a cigar too.

Damn fine is right, Brian! Man, this was a cigar and a half.  The only cigar I've ever had that actually smoked ME!

Ive been looking at the Padron Family Reserve 45. My accountant (the Mrs) has “asked” me to scale back purchases for a bit but thats definitely a wish list stick.

John, it's truly a bucket list smoke that you should try once in your life. Carve out about 2-1/2 hours of uninterrupted smoking time. Make sure you eat a hearty meal before smoking, and keep a sweet drink nearby because this is a butt kicker but a great experience

What do you mean by it being a butt kicker?

It packs a punch in the nicotine department.  I am never affected by nicotine in cigars, but this was the first and only one that I actually started to "feel" at the midway point.....like, damn, I don't know if I can finish this lol. I went inside, threw down a few handfuls of chocolate chips and a diet coke, and came back out and powered through it. Oh and in the 5-7 minutes it took to do this, it still didn't go out!!

I experienced something like that with one of the Rocky Patel’s from a sampler I got. I got nauseous and a bit dizzy. I think I just smoked it to fast. Just part of my education. Lesson learned.

When the nicotine hits, here's a trick: Put 1/2 teaspoon of sugar in your mouth and hold it against the roof of your mouth, letting it dissolve slowly. In a minute or two the nausea will disappear. Works a treat, and is a great technique for newbies.

Oops, too late.
