I purchased 4 Romeo Y Julieta Churchills last Friday.. but I sent them all to a buddy as a thanks for he and his wife giving us a double-stroller.

Bought an LVH Robusto Chateau #2. Anyone know anything about these? I paid $2.30 at my local B&M, downtown Spokane...

I needed some coffee. Since my local microroaster seems to be out of business, I ordered some Mayorga Kenya AA from jrcigar.com. While I was there I pickup a box of S T DuPont cigars that were on weekly special (the Pyramides) and some cheapies (Mocambo Half Coronas). Anyone have any experience with either of these?

They look like a tobacco tongue depressor.

The last one I smoked was a Camacho Corojo Diadema which was 8" X 60 - wrapped in foil like a present.

Last night while trying to get comfortable in my chair at home I lit a La Flor Dominicana Factory Press. This is a strange looking thing. Big, square. Felt like a brick.

I've had LFDs before. always powerful cigars. This one took quite a while to just settle down. Maybe the odd construction affected the burn. About halfway through it finally settled down and began to taste like an LFD. This cigar can give you a buzz. I was glad to be sitting down.

LFDs are a good cigar. I have gone through 2 boxes and have not been disappointed. I've heard the factory pressed are a little stout.

Oh the joys of working p/t in a B & M! Last Saturday I smoked a La Gloria Cubana #7 maduro. The foot was split and unraveling and I had to get rid of it. Later in the week, a Padron 2000.

Today at the B & M, a friend gave me another Padron 1926. What a great smoke.

The 1926 is one of those really special smokes.

I attended a CAO event at the local B&M here. I hobbled around on my cane, I wasn't going to miss that. (See prayer request to know why I'm on the cane) I spent way too much money. I did purchase a new CAO meerschaum pipe, 8 oz of a local bend of pipe tobacco called Gentleman Jack, but I also bought a new CAO Humidor, covered in leather. Really a nice item. It's pretty large. I need to find a place around here to put the thing.

Oh, I'm off topic. The last cigar was the CAO Soprano last night at the event.

wow, I can talk meaninglessly can't I? :D

Punch London Club maduro, pretty good, albeit monochromatic.

Post by JScott » Sun Sep 17, 2006 12:19 pm

Last Week- New Cohiba (with black wrapper and silver band). Smelled wonderful. Smoked well

Friday night- CAO Sopranos edition (not as good as the cohiba)

Looking for full bodied, full flavored cigars with dark, oily wrappers that don't burn the back of my throat. Any suggestions?

I've been told that the Carlos Torano Virtuoso are pretty good, although I've not tried one yet. They go for about 6$ online...

Smoked a Maria Guerero toro after lunch today. Thought it was very good value on the price/quality ratio.
