RP vintage 92 churchill with my usual, bourbon/rocks. Last night it was Blanton's.
Ashton VSG Tres Mystique tonight with Lagavulin. Great little cigar with big, big flavor. And the Lagavulin, so excellent!
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?
Cain 550 habano robusto...nice little smoke.
Fuente Hemingway classic
Esoterica's Stonehaven in a Rad Davis Squashed Tomato.
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.
carlos Torano Exodus 1959 silver edition
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. [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.
Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur 1066 dark knight II
Cain Daytona 5 x 43
Chops on the grill then an Old Henry robusto with Aberlour A'bunadh. Makes for a good night.
I had a Ramon Allones Gigantes yesterday evening. That cigar is allways a pleasure.
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!!!
RyJ short churchill tonight with Oban. So relaxing! Watched a turtle cross the road as I smoked my RyJ. Took him a very long time.
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.
5 vegas cask strength
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.
Upmann Connoisseur #1 and Por Larranaga petite corona.
