    Pipe Related Hit

    OK, this isn't a pipe/baccy bomb exactly, but I had to post...

    Last week I worked out a deal with Alan (asmartbull) - I'd send some of my extra Squadron Leader plus a tin of University Flake and he'd send a little cigar sampler. Given the cost different between tins of pipe tobacco and cigars I was expecting a modest handful of cigars (4 or 5 maybe).

    I was nervous when the package arrived because it had a bit of weight to it. My jaw dropped when I saw the contents, the package contained a dozen sticks!!!

    Since I'm a cigar noob I'd not heard of most of these:

    A Fuente Anejo Reserva Xtra Viejo
    Ashton Virginia Sun Grown
    Fuente Opus Opus X
    Padron 1964 Anniversary
    Perdomo 2 Limited Edition 2008
    Quesada Seleccion Espana
    San Cristobal Seleccion Del Sol
    Tatuaje "The Face"
    Tatuaje Holiday Blend
    Tatuaje Reserva
    Viaje (unmarked)
    Viaje Reserva

    I'm heading out later today to pick up some tupperware and Xikar beads...

    Thanks Alan!
    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?

    I picked up a Gispert and a Gran Habano at lunch today to ease into this with some milder sticks. And I'm about to pull the trigger on a humidor, but it's just a coincidence. Absolutely no relation to this trade... I swear. Really.

    Gotta be careful with those cigars. There's a distinct possibility you may not enjoy budget friendly sticks after smoking that assortment.

    I guess Al really has it in for you.

    Seriously though, those Are all incredible smokes. You should enjoy them. (and I was only half joking about ruining your palate for cheaper cigars)
    That which is falling, should also be pushed

    I tried the A Fuente Anejo Reserva Xtra Viejo this past weekend along with some Arizona Tea "Arnold Palmer". It believe the richness and complexity were lost on me, at least to a certain degree. While I very much enjoyed it I think I need to start with some milder cigars to build an appreciation.

    Anyone wanna trade some milder sticks for some decent pipe tobacco? :-) Ooops, wrong forum for that question!
