I'm sitting in the garage with a book, a beer, and some cigars. Smoked an Oliva Master Blends 3 torpedo, and now I've moved on to an Esteban Carreras Chupacabra - smoking the little one they call the “chupitas” (I find it to be more flavorful than the larger ones).

I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

Erik Espinosa was in the shop today. I smoked Laranjas and Wasabis until my mouth said to hell with it.

Oliva Master Blends 3 robusto. A pleasurable smoke as always.

I ended up selecting the Red, the Yellow, and the Black. The names refer to the band colors, btw. My selections included a dark Maduro, a light Cuban, and a medium Nicaraguan wrapper, which was the yellow band, and the one I smoked last night with a small glass of Tulamore Dew. Its a decent smoke but no sweet spot. Others at the table smoked the black band Maduro and appeared to really enjoy it.
Jeff Lipton was live, streamed on a large screen, and was very knowledgeable, and took everyone's questions. He seems to run a good business, selling Abt half million cigars per year from his shop in Austin.
The meal was interesting, and enjoyable, and went well with a glass of Budweiser draft.
The infused vodkas were less than a hit with pretty much everyone. But if I were forced to pick one for the golf cart or duck blind I'd go with the effen blood orange, I think.

Had an Excalibur by Hoyo de Monterrey. I got it as part of a sampler from Cigars International - their 8 cigars for $10 sampler that they offer for new customers. It was ok - I have yet to smoke a Connecticut that I feel I would want to buy again. I like more of a medium to full-bodied cigar. After finishing it I had to fire up another Oliva Master Blends 3 torpedo to scratch the itch.

There are some great full bodied Connecticut’s out there but you won’t find them in a $10 sampler
