    My go to n/c cigar is the PAN '64, or the PAN '26 when I can find them. My go to Cuban is the PSD4. Right now my PSD4 stock is low, only about 8 sticks left, though with lots of bloom on them :)

    mmmmmmmmmm bloom is good. :eusa_clap

    PAN's and PAM's are both good. I really enjoy the standard Padron 2000 and 3000 also. I had a Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte yesterday, which is great inexpensive smoke.

    I had, last night, a La Flor Dominicana 2000 Series in a corona size that NAILED me. I don't know if I could handle the Ligero or Double Ligero.
     
  4. Humidity too high in that humidor? ;)
    I'll send you some Perique tobacco for you pipe so you feel better. ;) :p

    Some of these new blends are powerful smokes, lots of pepper in them. And high nicotine content. Trying to compete with Cuban Bolivars lovers I guess.

    Cuban Bolis. mmmmmmmmmmmm.

    Got a nice blend of 5100 with Perique in it, that's some good stuff.

    I can recall my Japanese History prof in his office, lighting a pipe bowl
    of Captain Black, before scolding me for a paper I wrote....lol
    I'm tempted to try some Frog Morton.

    Tommy, feel free to bring a couple of Bolis with you and join Castanza, 7Mag, and myself for a little "mini-herf" this Saturday, downtown Mobile.:D

    I have a PAM and a couple other "favorites" set aside for the occasion.:D :)

    Well, I've had an eventful day. At 9:20 my new bookcases from Ikea arrived. Spent the next several hours assembling them. Worked up quite a sweat, but I now have a lot of very old books in bookshelves instead of boxes. In the process I discovered a beautiful leather scrap book, with 224 pictures of my mother's family's trip to Europe in 1937. I didn't even know I had it!
    I finally flopped. It's cicada time, so the back yard is full of chittering cicadas, and the cats are bringing their little half emerged bodies into the house. It's an annual ritual. I made myself a mojito, lit up my Upmann cigar, and sat in the back yard and enjoyed myself. The guy at the cigar store said this cigar would be good for a novice smoker like me, and boy was he right. I sat there as the light faded from the sky and went into a deep reverie. Now I get it, guys. I will be doing this on a regular basis from now on. Thanks!
    P.S. My Mama cat just ate her cicada. So everyone's happy.

    Just found a couple of new brands, new to me anyway. Charles The Great and Lambs Club. Anyone tried either of these?

    I've not had either. They're both made by Finck Cigar Co. of San Antonio, Texas. They're likely mild, machine made cigars.
