For a brief moment today I could taste a cigar ... I was sad when it faded.

Yesterday, a Torano Vault L-075, very nice spicy cigar. Currently my go-to bundle cigar, Casa de Garcia Connecticut Churchill. Usually I pick a corona or robusto, but was pricing the Churchills and one dropped to the floor.

I haven't had a cigar since before Thanksgiving. There is a new cigar lounge in town and I am going to give them a try next week. My wife has a conference and that will be a perfect chance for me to have cigar breath :)

I smoked a 5 Vegas Gold the other day. I swear I don't know why I ever buy anything else.

My last cigar smoked was about a month ago, an Alec Bradley Tempus Maduro.
I don't as many cigars anymore. When I do, I favor AB cigars.

I stopped by the new cigar shop last night. The have a limited supply as they are new, but it was OK. The owners are former USMC and they seemed like great guys. The lead owner took time to show me around and then left me to make selections. I bought a RP Edge and an Oliva Series 0 . Hopefully they will be a hit, there were 4 or 5 guys in the lounge, so looks like a good start. They have been open about 8 weeks.

Last Friday I smoked an Alec Bradley American with a Connecticut wrapper. It went nicely with a bit of Highwood Wheat Whiskey from Trailhead Spirits. It's distilled in Billings, MT. The American's have become a favorite cigar of mine along with Oliva's. Almost any Oliva's really. I still smoke a few bowls a day but I have taken up having a cigar 2-3 times a month.
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

Have spent lots of time, many days, in Billings, when we lived in Sheridan, and then in Bozeman.
My question is: what is your primary prompting to smoke ANY cigar? Is it taste? The aroma of smoked cigar - virtually anyone - is so gross, I swear each time I will never try another cigar. Yet I do, for they are 'fun' for me; the handling; the less attention required; no re-lighting, tamping, etc. But I have confessed before, I hardly ever taste ANYTHING when smoking either pipe or cigar. Sometimes, when really focusing, I'm sure it's Latakia that I enjoy, if it suggests, for some anyway, a smokey campfire aroma. Sometimes a fig taste; BUT aside from that, I couldn't tell you any "taste" that drives me to smoke any given pipe tobac. My enjoyment remains primarily, in the entire enjoyment of the pipe experience; AND the aroma of the smoke itself that issues from the pipe. I love to smell a "delicious/enjoyment/aroma" - - my prime sensory pleasure.

This reality keeps me always highly disappointed with myself; my lack of a keen "taster." :(

Gispert Intenso. Full flavor, to say the least. I got about half of it burned during 18 holes of golf this morning, along with half a Miller Lite, a link of boudin, a sausage in a tortilla, and some steak and onions in another tortilla. Trying to take a nap now, and quiet my belly. At least I stayed away from the early a.m. boiled eggs and donuts.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)
