the big smoke


Last week, I reported on Cigar Aficionado's Big Smoke Weekend in Las Vegas. Just the festivities of Friday night took up a three part article. The events were fun, festive and informative. You can see the Friday night coverage at the following links ...

Big Smoke Part I :: Big Smoke Part II :: Big Smoke Part III

Now, on to Saturday and Sunday at the Big Smoke in Vegas!

I have to say that Las Vegas is one of my favorite towns. It's the ultimate adult playground. As a side note, as I write this I am listening to The Best of Frank Valli and The Four Seasons. The Big Smoke was held at The Venetian, which is one of my favorite places to stay in Vegas. The Venetian is the host of the show "Jersey Boys" and the elevators constantly played the Four Season's music. It's still stuck in my head after two weeks.

Father & Sons Seminar

The first seminar theme on Saturday was "Father & Sons". It featured The Padron's, Toraño's and Fuente's. Only one of the father son teams was complete. Charlie Toraño and Carlos Fuente Sr. had other pressing matters to attend to that day. The crowd easily forgave their absence and thoroughly enjoyed the presentations and wonderful stories.

We received the following cigars on Saturday; Padron 1926 Anniversary, Toraño Exodus 1959 (which I am smoking as I write this), Fuente Don Carlos Gran Reserva and the Fuente Fuente OpusX Lancero. The OpusX Lancero is rare and generally not available at most retailers.
