That makes me sad. When I was a kid, my family routinely crossed from Canada into NY state by car without even showing ID...

 

Back to cigars, today it was another Montecristo Edmundo and also a Partagas Short. The latter is a great small cigar.

Been smoking quite a bit lately with the weather improving.

Had a Padron FR 44th maduro last week. Yesterday I had a Tatuaje M80, Tatuaje Reserva J21 and a Opus X robusto from 2009. Felt good.

Fuente Fuente? Great cigar!

sadly today it's my last Petit Julieta. seems like the box was full so recently...

... and what's worse, I accidentally (deeply jetlagged and groggy) grabbed and bought a pack of cigarillos instead of the cigars I wanted at duty free the other day - ack!

I'm smoking a Rocky Patel 92 vintage the size and shape of a hemmingway short story.  I bought it a year or so ago, and it's just been hanging out in my humidor.  This is quite the firecracker.

ah! I'm waiting for the right moment to light up a RP vintage '92 perfecto.

Isn't the best time to light up a good cigar when you have time to smoke it? :)

hm... that's what got me on the sliding path from a good ole puro to the little partagas, and now I'm stuck with all the cigarillos. they're like a breath in the wind and gone. but still nice. the real cigars await a real occasion ;-)

Had an opportunity to smoke one of the new Habanos. It's not yet officially released but my friend in the industry got four on his recent trip to Cuba. This is the H. Upmann Half Corona, a perfect 20-25 minute smoke. It's a real cigar - full flavor H. Upmann... quite lovely actually. These will come in boxes of 25 and  also smal tins of 5. The latter should be beautiful in the jacket pocket.

I had a Rocky Patel Sun Grown last night with my male relatives and a few drinks. Probably the best cigar I've had so far since it was really smooth and mild unlike other cigars (romeo and juliets come to mind) that leave a bad taste.

 

Definitely going to be picking up a few of the Rocky Patels soon. Any others from their line you might recommend?

post #1317 of 1363

Sigh. That would be the Dominican "Romeo & Julieta'.' The Chinese 'Romeo & Julietas' that I can buy on the street here aren't very good either. ;-)

 

The Rocky Patel Sun Grown is a nice cigar. Very mild.

Smoked my first "real" cigar today to celebrate the end of my summer classes. A cheap Arturo Fuente from the local tobacco shop. It was nice, despite the fact that I buggered the light terribly. It was really mild though, and not especially varied in flavor. It was still a great way to end a summer of class though.

post #1319 of 1363

yes, beware. there are websites that show you how to tell them apart in a number of ways. highly unlikely that you'd get a good Rome & Julieta in CONUS. europe, mexico, elsewhere: double-check. but there are many other decent options. in my drawer right now: A Fuente Gran Reserva; Oliva Serie G; another Rocky Patel Vintage 1992; and a non-name puro from Oaxaca that will at least keep the bugs away ;-)

Yeah, those upmann's got a kick to em, especially towards the end when your head starts spinning - best part!  looks like a great sized cigar.
