    Helix Connecticut. It was a Connecticut wrapper with nothing inside. Waste of a perfectly good match. Maybe if I was playing a round of golf?

    CAO Mx2 toro tonight with Oban. A note on the box said it was packed 6/10/10. These still need more aging to bring out the sweetness and less harshness. I'll try another in a few months.

  9. I would guess that six months would probably do it for them---depending if they are individually wrapped in cellophane etc.....
    Then again, I had a bunch of torpedoes that were strong from the start, mellowed at six month and then went back to sneaky strong six months later. :p[huh]
    I am working on a new cocktail for my smoking pleasure. It involves vodka made with rye, chambord and orange bitters. I just have to get the portions right. :D

    Pinnacle vodka and tonic with an El Ray Del Mundo cask aged!!

    El Reys are always good!! If you havn't tried Pinnacle your missing out ... It isn't expensive so you might over look it ... But it is second to none!!!

    I am very lucky to have a good buddy who owns "The Indio Cigar Factory" in my little town of Charleston, IL. He hand rolls excellent cigars with wrappers and tobacco from all over the world. The word "factory" is misleading. He owns a private shop on the square in the old side of town with a beautiful lounge (leather chairs, card tables and big screen TV) where you can relax, smoke a nice one and watch TV or play cards. I've been spending more and more time there smoking some nice cigars while wearing a great Vintage Fedora.

    A friend of mine in California just mailed me a Pre Castro Cuban yesterday so I am watching for the mail man over the next couple of days. He sent me one last year and it was fantastic! They have been in a humidor for well over 50 years and my buddy at the Cigar Factory is very interested in checking it out.

    Just bought a box :) Don't know about the States but plenty here. Have not heard a bad word except poor quality control and expensive comparatively hence people tends to avoid buying whole box here. The rey del mundo Tainos is a good investment now that it is discontinued.
