Your Last Cigar Purchase/smoked

Post by SFC » Fri Feb 04, 2005 7:29 am

I thought I would try and give the Cigar Smokers their latest cigars they purchased or smoked. No need to go into great detail, but you can.

I have a humidor with about 200 sticks, primarily Fuente Cigars ranging from the Chateuas to the Ashtons to the Diamond Crowns to the Opus Fuente Fuente.

My last purchase was two of the Opus Fuente Fuente, we are limited to two per customer.

My last that I smoked was a CAO Itallia 5x62, the taste was about 90, excellent size, rolled to perfection and just seems to get that robust flaor from the first puff to the end. I love these cigars

SFC, would have to agree with you on the CAO. I especially like the Brazil dark maduro. Right now I am smoking a Puros Indigo which is very nice for a golf cigar or something to smoke when that sudden chance arises. samiam __~~

I smoked a cuban Cohiba that was given to me at the 2004 Millwaukee Area Pipe Smokers show.

I always keep a few cigars around, of various makes/models. The only cigar that is always present in my humidor is the Arturo Fuente Don Carlos, in either #3 or #4. Fortunately, I live close to Tampa, so I can buy them any time, all the time for less than 1/2 what I had to pay when I lived in TN 8) . My last two cigars were one of those (#4), and a CAO Criollo, in the Pato size. I won a box of the Criollo (free giveaway at a smoker at the local tobacconist). They are spectacular. I don't care too much for many of the CAO bundles and flavored sticks, but I'm digging these Criollos. They have "something" that I can't nail down...a spicy (in a very pleasant way) 'twang to them.

Sandpiper, you lucky dog they seem to go real fast here in Arizona along with the Royal Salute, Chateau Maduro and Double Chateau in Maduro.

Samiam, I have found that the Puros Indigo is just a little too mild for my tastes, but then again if I were at the FBR that would be an excellent choice.

My last real cigar was in Cabo San Lucas on my company's president's club trip last November. It was a Cuban Monte #4 and it was spectacular.

Ah, today was a wonderful cigar day. After lunch I smoked a Dominican Montecristo Robusto and later in the afternoon, a friend gave me a Cuban Cohiba Robusto (one of my alltime favorites!) which I smoked with him; and he also gave me a Cuban Partagas Serie D #4 which I shall have at a later time. Life is good!

I have been smoking only cigars lately, & haven't touched any of my pipes in quite a while.

I just finished smoking an ACID KUBA KUBA while playing catch with my 8 yr old son about 1/2 hr ago.

Good smoke, & I really enjoyed it.

I have bought way to many cigars lately, & it has made my savings sting.

I don't have the cash to buy a box of anything good, so I have been sticking to sampler pkgs from Famous cigars, & some from Finks.

I have an ACID assortment on backorder with a humidor, so I will be able to save some & maybe then I will try some more expensive smokes.

Anyone try the Graycliffs? Are they worth the big price?

Last cigar I smoked.....

Post by LordsTobacco » Fri May 26, 2006 4:00 pm

Well yesterday I had the pleasure of smoking a Padron 1964 Anniversary! Splendid smoke I must say. As of today I have smoked a Montecristo Edmondo (cuban) and a Cohiba Sighlo II (cuban) and I am in the midst of a rather robust Trinidad (Dominican)!

Graycliffs are a decent cigar. Worth the money I am not sure, I am always game to try a cigar whatever the price.
So my suggestion is try it.

A Cusano Robusto 18 year aged (so they claim!) Not bad. But not my favorite. Previous to that one I had a Fuente Hemingway Short Story. My favorite small cigar.

Last night I enjoyed a Carlos Torano Virtuoso. This is one of my very favorite cigars. Even more than the Opus X line. It's also much more affordable. I haven't had a bad Torano yet.

LaGloria Cubana Maduro Series R Robusto. What a great cigar! While only a Robusto in length it lasted through half a round of golf and enhanced the whole morning!

I had a Licenciados churchill that had been in my humidor over a decade (from back when Cigar Afficianado had given them a 93 rating, I believe it was -- an amazing bargain at the time; I have no idea whether they are still producing or, if so, what the quality of their new smokes are).

The outer wrapper was a bit loose (always a problem I remember with those inexpensive Licenciados, which a decade had only made worse), but the smoke itself was mild and slightly woody. Decent, and well worth the 3 bucks I paid for it way back when...

Partagas Limited Reserve 1995 Decadas...man, that was good too. It was a Christmas gift from a buddy that I never got around to smoking, and it was GREAT.

Had a Java Waif last night. It's a coffee flavored cigar and has fine coffee, chocolate and tobacco flavor. They're the weirdest shape I've ever seen though. They're flat! Wasn't sure how it would burn, but it kept an even burn and last nearly 45 minutes.
