    Anyone looking to trade? I have Cubans to trade for other Cubans. I’d like to try something different.

    I like
    Tatuaje Fausto . It's a medium cigar selling around $9 bucks.

    Been a long time since it has been pleasant enough to go out back and have a smoke. Been in the Nob Creek Small Batch 100 around 5:00 then some scotch. So tonight it was just some water and a Romeo Y Julieta

    It's a strong SOB. Lots of pepper and a little chalky on the finish. Paired with some Pellegrino (I do not imbibe). [​IMG]

    Down to my last cigar now, I had 2 of these "My Father Lounge Exclusive Box-Pressed Torpedos" left and I finished this one about an hour ago, as far as I know the "Pipe & Pint" in Greensboro is the only place you'll find these in NC, so if you're in the area swing by and check them out, they carry a good number of hard to find cigars and they don't gouge the hell out of you for them either!

    This evening's festivities include this Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real Magnum (6×50). Mixture of Nicarauguan and Dominican long filler with a Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper. Nice medium smoke.

    I smoked my last Cohiba Edicion Diamante on the 4th. A Cameroon wrapper from the 1980 harvest. Bought a box of 10 back in 2014ish. It aged and smoked incredibly well.

    They're spectacular, but even better after sitting for a while. These have been in the humidor for about 4 years now, and I think I have 2 left. Definitely should have bought 2 boxes.

    Enjoying a post yard work cigar.
    This is a Julius Caeser (sic) produced by Fuente for J.C. Newman.
    0720191332.jpg
    Made with tobaccos harvested in Central America, encased in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper for a smooth, complex smoke with a medium strength profile.

    Those are some of the best non-fuente, Fuentes. The Ashton Symmetry is another good one.

    I'm enjoying a Fuente Don Carlos tonight. [​IMG]

    I was just checking the humidors to refresh the moisture units. It's been too hot and muggy to sit outside and burn one down for a long time. Plus I don't have the mosquitio control everyone else apparently has.

    I don't think I've smoked one since Christmas. :(

    H. Upmann - Vintage Cameroon tonight. It's been a longtime favorite of mine.

    Can't get the pic to upload. But it's a cigar. Nice even burn.

    I've never had a bad Padron. Even the numbered series. The 2000 is a regular favorite.

    Rewarded myself after yard work with a San Lotano torpedo by A.J. Fernandez. Connecticut Shade wrapper with Nicarauguan filler. Nice medium smoke.
