    There are already cases where it's true, despite your tongue-in-cheek, m'friend.

    Thanks for the update RedPop. When does this take effect and when can we expect to see the prices increase?

    Had an Oliva Series G cameroon last night. Mild but tasty!

    I believe it's April 1st, 2009

    I had a review cigar for CW last night. I'm not sure what it is or was. It was mild, mild, mild, BUT I ACTUALLY caught a "hint" of a real flavor.

    It's CW Review #3 for 2009, don't know when it'll go to press, I forgot to smoke #2. :eek: :eek:

    The Reserva Real 654 is a figurado shape that measures 6.5 x 54. Construction was good, with a smooth wrapper and no obvious flaws. The initial draw was a little tight, but loosened up very quickly with no poking required. Brazilian Aripiraca wrapper and Nicaruagan filler edge this figurado to the "medium" end of its listed "mild-medium" flavor scale. Their website touts espresso flavors, sweet tobacco and floral notes. The espresso/coffee flavors are strongest of all, but the sweetness promised seemed present with a slightly sugary aftertaste.

    RedPop, thanks again for the reply.

    Last night I had a Quintero toro while on a stake-out detail. Large 58 ring cigar with lots of great, thick smoke; helped hide my car. :D

    Hoped the aroma didn't blow toward the target...:eek:

    A Micoli Freehand pipe (1976) carved by Robert Eugene Burns and loaded with Orlik Golden Sliced. A pure Virginia tobacco with a very slight hint of Perique. This is about the smoothest, cleanest, highest quality smoking Virginia tobacco I have experienced. It smokes very consistently from top-to-bottom. I does provide a slight nicotine-kick. John

    While taking in the first parade of the Mardi Gras season last night I enjoyed a San Cristobal de Habana La Punta......I wasn't concerned with catching beads or Moon Pies while enjoying this cigar.:)


    .....although it was fun to watch the young ladies around me campaign for beads.:D

    OK...Sat. night was a Fuente Hemingway classic, Sunday night was a Macanado Diplomat maduro perfecto. For lunch on both days I went with a 5 Vegas Series A toro (boxed pressed). I just ordered some Gurka Gran Reserve perfectos and they should arrive in a couple of days. These are some of my favorites. Big smoke at 6 x 60 but man I love em. Can't wait. Weather has been unseasonably mild here lately in NC. Very good cigar smokin' weather! :D

    Started off my morning yesterday with an Ashton 8-9-8 and a great cup of Mystic Monk coffee given to me as a gift from a dear friend. Ended up my day with a fantastic La Gloria Cubana Churchill maduro. Nice rich cigar, perfect for after dinner.
