What cigar (or pipe) did you smoke today?

  1. The Montecarlo is sort of a lancero size at 6 1/4" x 33 ring guage. You need to try a box. ;) :p
    Did they picture you in that hat with the blue shirt and tie combo? :D You Cigar Snob you. ;)
     
  2. Good. You only live once. Enjoy it I say. :D
     
  3. Oh and last night was a Partagas Serie D No. 4.

    I finally got some more in. The cigar burns nearly dead straight and will hang a 2" ash easily time after time. The draw was what I consider perfect. Not breezy but easy. :D Probably one of the quintessential robustos in all of the world. It starts out as a spice bomb and settles down into woodsy sweet spice and builds up in power. It finishes with complex flavors that are balanced and lightly spicy. I can't say enough for this one. It is enough to say that I smoked it until there was nearly no more. :p [huh]
    Paired with a Feckin Irish Whisky, it was a perfect after dinner smoke.
    I am a happy camper. What can I say? ;)

    James, those are indeed superb cigars. Several years ago, I obtained a box and loved every one of them. You gotta be a happy camper with those smokes and a great Irish whiskey. Very good eval on the "D", by the way. :)

    Last night I had a Padilla Hybrid.
     
  6. I see you have tried a few and know the D designation. ;) They are indeed good. My brother-in-law started me on them. Of course a free cigar is always better tasting but this transcends that. ;) :p
    Have you tried that brand of whisky? Its great for the price. I am sure it will go up now that the cat is out of the bag. :rolleyes:
    What is a Padilla Hybrid?

    Drew Estates Kahlua, grabbed a tin of their cigarillo sized ones while I still could. Also grabbed one of their new Tabak Especial's in Negro to see how the replacement ranks with the old Kahluas.

    I have had the Feckin Irish (what a name :rolleyes: ) and it is good. I prefer John Powers to all the other Irish whiskeys because I think it has the classic copper pot still taste with the oily perfume that makes Irish so nice.

    A Padilla Hybrid is made by Ernesto Padilla and is one of his lower priced cigars. I seldom smoke an expensive one at work because there is too much chance of having to toss it for a call. I get them from CI or Cigarbid.com. Nothing fancy; just a good straightforward tobacco taste with a good burn and lots of smoke.

    Last night I had a La Viejo Habana "Leather Patch" torpedo. Got a five pack reasonably on a bid. Not bad-not great.

  16. It is quite a name but it makes ordering it in an Irish Pub quite interesting. ;) :p Powers is also decent. I am glad you like my namesake. :p
    Last night was another Montecarlo. I might be getting in a Indy rut. :rolleyes: :p
