This afternoon, I smoked my birthday cigar from our CPCC meeting from last night. It was a house cigar called Oro de Nicaragua. I am a nic lightweight. My review was along the line of STOP THIS RIDE!!! I WANT OFF!!!

Afterwards, I smoked a little of Blue Ribbon, from the Country Squire, that JMG gifted me. Suddenly I could really taste the blackberry flavor that comes with this blend. I enjoyed the sweetness. This saved my afternoon. I really enjoyed this.

This is why I often load two pipes, one a natural and the other an aromatic. When one pipe goes out, I light the other. It really helps me taste the difference.
A belated Happy Birthday, Winton!

A 5 pack sampler of Oliva Churchill sized from Holt's Cigars. $9.95 w/ free Priority Shipping. I will keep these humidified until cooler weather
I grabbed this sampler and just enjoyed an O series tonight. Very good. A solid 85 (or better at times). Thanks for letting us know.
It was actually another CPSer (and I'm sorry for not recalling who) that told us about that great deal. I will try the "O" Series first soon, with your recommendation

I'm not a huge cigar connoisseur like some of the other gents here, but I recently tried some inexpensive "Game" cigarillos made with natural tobacco at the local store, and I found them quiet good. (I'm a former cigarette smoker and used to inhaling, so it might be awhile before I become accustomed to smoking a real cigar), but I'm enjoying it in the meantime.

Had a Cusano 18 Double Connecticut. I'm pretty much a newb when it comes to cigars, but that one was definitely one of the best that I've had.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Little bit of a cold tonight so I went with something I could toss with no remorse. Nicaraguan 2nd cheap and cheerful!
