.....nice, some new great looking maduro prospects for when I start bidding again in April. Can't wait to try the new to Cigar Bid,
PADILLA LA TERRAZA MADURO (and Habano) "The smoke is rich and dense, offering notes of leather, toasted wood and a touch of chocolate with some peppery-sweet tones on the finish. If you're looking for a solid, everyday handmade from Padilla with the added benefit of being extremely affordable....bid now".
.....maybe if I call and beg they will stash away a 10 lot just for me. NOT!
.....and for the very first, or at least not since last February, they are offering up what is said to the best of the excellent CI LEGENDS SERIES lines, the NESTOR PLASENCIA MADURO (5.7"x54). "The Nestorís blend for the Legends Series easily ranks among the finest cigars to come out of any of his factories. The outer leaf is dark and oily, a Broadleaf maduro thatís chock full of flavor. Inside, a well-aged mixture of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers awaits, ready to release a medium-bodied bouquet. The flavors are rich and deep, with toasty notes of wood and roasted coffee, with ample spice to complete each puff. Smooth down to the nub, the Legends by Nestor Plasencia is top-notch all around".
.....we shall see if it is all that. Will be hard-pressed to top the awesome DON PEPIN GARCIA Legends blend, or even the Graycliff. Hopefully, by April, these won't be scarce once again.
.....and if you like VICTOR SINCLAIR cigars, the SERIE '55' OSCURO TORO, 6"x50, (blue label), after a good 6 months of naked aging, actually turn into a good smoke. Was only a 75 Rated smoke when I purchased last August, and dipped into my stash over the past 6 months up to last nights smoking. Now a good 80 Rated smoke, and worth a buy at less then $2per if you don't mind waiting. I do, so I won't be buying again. And Victor Sinclair is one of the best good, value line daily cigar makers. All his blends were high mild at best to me. And except for this medium SERIE 55 OSCURO, the only other blend I liked was the BOHEMIAN RED COROJO FIGURADO (6.5"x54). It is offered at Cigar Bid for $2per of less every night. If you enjoy high mild Connecticut wrapped cigars, the Bohemian Red Figurado is a perfect, high mild change of pace smoke.
