Free. Ah yes. Yesterday a friend gave me a Cuban Montecrsto in a rather long panatela shape. A "B" maybe? Very nice smoke indeed.

Smoked 2 Padron Anniversary maduro cigars today. The shop owner was in and gave me 4 of them. Marvelous!

1926 or 1964? Not that both aren't awesome cigars, just curious.

They're 1964s. I like them about the same as the 1926s and they're a bit cheaper. Padrons regular line is one of the true bargains in the cigar world IMO. San Luis Reys and Gisperts and Indios Puros are on my bargain list too.

Big Fuente Fan. Just bought two Anejos (not sure which ones) and three Work of Art Maduros (Hemmingway line). Only come out once or twice per year. May try to go back and get a few more.

It was a Lauro Cigar, a corona. It was fantastic... of course it might have had something to do with me sipping scotch on the beach with my wife and having romantic dinners ever night without the kids, but it was a fantastic cigar.

Not sure I would remember the smoke in that scenario.

Yes, I like The Edge. A good bargain. An even better bargain is a new line called Dynamite. Their maduro is especially nice. Another new bargain line is Helix; to me they taste like Macanudos at half the price.

Dennis does Helix have a maduro? No fond of naturals anymore.
The Dynamites are these widely distributed?
Oh yeah, tried a new one for me: Signet, very strong Maduro. Guy at the shop said it was one for a full stomach, he was right. Not sure if I will try this one again.

Yes, Helix has both natural CT wrappers and maduro wrappers. Dynamite has natural and maduro as well, but not CT, native Honduran and the maduro is very nice and oily.

I just finished a Padron annivisario 1926. I am quite fond of those in any size, and keep a respectable quantity at hand. Also the Opus X, I am lucky not to have a limit on my purchases so I keep a healthy dose of those. On the other hand I still have 30 or 40 Ramon Y Ramone signature series 150 year comemoration cigars in the boxes (I have two) these are spectacular presentation boxes each having about 12 (never really counted them all) drawers, each drawer made to fit a particular size. Although they look like they could be used for a humidor themselves they really dont do well unless you are already in a humid location . But inside a nice tall glass presentation case with the drawers half open......ooooh it's good.

Wilbur - Yeah, Padrons are tasty suckers aren't they.

Since you don't have a limit on your Opus X puchases, send me a box :)

I now have picked up four Anejo sharks, two other Anejos, three Hemmingway Work of Art and two signature maduros. Have to stop now before I go broke.

I LOVE the cigars. It's funny, I can't figure out why anybody would want to gamble ( my mind just doesn't think that way, I'm horrible at it) and literally throw thier money away. But $25 on a good cigar?.....Money well spent!
And of course several hundred on a fine pipe is a lasting investment!

OOOps, I'd be happy to you a box . I'll take it out of my tithe money just to be sure God blesses the transaction.

I smoked 2 cigars at work today; and wimp that I am got a bit dizzy. First was a Gispert robusto, and the second was an Arturo Fuente 858 both w/ natural wrappers and both excellent medium bodied cigars. I smoked a pipe in between them, hence the dizzyness I suspect.

At the shop yesterday, I smoked a salesman sample, a Caballeros Rothschild which had a light Connecticut wrapper and was mild and smooth like a Macanudo. Nice and innocuous. I should add that it was VERY well made and burned very evenly. The price was right. FREE!
