ROMEO Y JULIETA Viejo, 6x54 Box Pressed Epicure, #40, is an excellent cigar. A very solid combined maduro/caramel as the product write up details. At $6 at C.I. I would buy it now and then for a extra fine cigar. Would buy it like mad at my usual $3 or under budget limit.
and #41, CUBA LIBRE'S, 4.5x60 BRUTE is good as well. A noticeable peppery cigar that combines spice and creamy mild tobacco flavor very well. The 6..2x54 Torpedo would be a nice try for a longer smoke. Definitely worth a 2ND smoking.
and #42, INDIAN TABAC CAMEROON LEGEND, 5x52 Robusto Grande is very good for a $2 cigar. If it cost more is could still claim to be average. More medium spices with a solid Cameroon warp taste. I LIKE IT!! That 6x58 Super Gorilla must be a nice fat smoke. But this maduro has a good taste well. I seem to like Cameroon & Corojo wraps best. That CAO Cameroon look awesome and will fall victim to my sputtering JR jet lighter. And the Camacho Corojo I smoke last week was a piece of work as well. And the La Perla Habana Morado's African Cameroon rates as an excellent smoke as well.
Won so many new sticks this past week. From May 30 on I will be a chain smoking fiend due to the...
Gurkha Beast-should be good
Pinar Del Rio Oscuro Torpedo-looks good
Trinidad Belicoso-excellent cigar
La Flor Dom Airbender Valiente-better be good for the price
Kinky Friedman Governor-all the hype has died out at CBid
Particulares Torpedo (that I have read has to age a while)
Oliveros Black Night Toro-looks good as well
Oliva Serie O & Serie O Maduro-always good
Victor Sinclair Connecticut Churchill-Dog Rocket PLUS?
Astral Connecticut Figurado-Dog Rocket PLUS?
Palma Real 6x60 Porky-Dog Rocket PLUS?
Troya Legacy Napoleon-who knows?
Brocatus Churchill-Dog Rocket PLUS?
and ten Double Happiness, 10x48 sticks, Diesel, G2, Achilles, Man O War, Gurkha, 5 Vegas 'A' I can tell from the labels. I would never cut the stick in half.
Gave winning a Fuente Hemingway Masterpiece, 9x52 by best shot. Claimed the stick at $9 with a max of $13 and lost it at $14. May give $15 a last minute shot if other bids elsewhere fail. Seeing C.I. sells the stick for $12.50, and it only retails for 14.50, I don't want to get to stupid.
Maybe I will give a 5 Vegas Gold Maduro Torpedo a puff in a bit
