WHINING about FREE FALL two posts ago and it ONLY GETS WORSE. Putting 10, 4x64 Connecticut Nub Torpedo's up for bid at $25.00 per 10 lot is just rotten. Those suckers know when I bid each month, and when I have blown my thin wad of cash they always post the sh^t directly afterward.
Well, they don't, but it seems like it. I have determined I like "dark" sticks as much, or equally too that of "lighter" shaded sticks. I determined this like I would expect any cigar smoker would, which is by noticing what sticks I run out of first. Thus far, since June 24th when my first of 3 small orders arrived, until this past Wednesday, when my last small order arrived, I have polished off darker sticks at a much higher rate taking into consideration the amount of that cigar I had in my inventory. Reposado '96 Habano wrapper and Padilla Achilles Salomon Habano wrapper were the first lines to near their end.
From this last small order, the four Habano wrapped Padilla 1948 Edi Lim Robustos are GONE, the four El Mejor Emerald Sumatra's are down to one, and the four 5 Vegas Series 'A' 6x58's are history. Couldn't get enough of the Series 'A', excellent cigar. The only lighter wrapped Connecticut I am close to polishing off is surprisingly is the "Working Man's Excalibur", John Bull 7.2x54 Prime Ministers. An excellent burning cigar that could carry the label of a "Generic" Excalibur easily. Have to grab an Excalibur this week at my local and do an actual quality taste test smoke. Since I love Excalibur, I guess it is not a surprise after all that I would finish off first a stick with similar characteristics.
