Whatcha smokin tonight?

I'm going to try an Ashton VSG Corona Gorda. Had one before but don't remember a whole bunch about it. This has been resting for about 16 months, so I'm looking forward to it.

    I just tried a La Aurora Leon Jimenes Belicoso maduro from a sampler that i received several months ago. The dark maduro wrapper of this cigar had a very pronounced vein structure. When i removed it from the humidor i looked closely and found that it had an oily bloom! I guess this is a good thing? This cigar was a bit strong for me yet the very spicy and varying complex flavors kept me intrigued enough to want more. The draw was effortless and it stayed burning well with a nice white ash right down to the nub, even with only one or two puffs a minute. I read that this one got a CA rating of 93. I think i am becoming a maduro fan very early in my smoking and collecting hobby. I will put this one on a box list for sure.

    We had general cigar rep at my local BM tonight he was passing out some Punch cigars. What a good time when everyone shows up for a free cigar and conversation. My BM turned a large room out back into a lounge. Will spend alot more time there cause the wife does not appreciate a fine cigar.

    I do appreciate going to my B & M for an event. A couple of cold ones and some good converation, hard to beat. I haven't explored the world of Punch, what did you have and what did you think?

    Had myself a La Flor Domincana L300, aged 9 mos. This smoke was perfect for the night. Lots of smooth flavor, med to med-full body, hint of sweet spice, some earthiness and a woody flavor, great burn, plenty of smoke, finger tips burnt. Went nicely with a touch of Glenfiddich. Very happy!!

    I smoked a Padila Miami Belicoso Fino today....what a great cigar has been aging for a year and is one of my favourites.

    I had an Ashton VSG last night, it was wonderful. On tonight's menu is a Punch Rare Corojo El Doble that's been in the humi since 2-10-07. I selected it last night and moved it to the top tray so I wouldn't forget and grab a Sol Cubano as I almost alwys do.

    Last night I resorted back to my personal favorite, CAO cx2, and it was great. Tonight I think ill try my 5 Vegas Miami, I keep hearing everybody say how good of a cigar it is so I think ill try it for myself.

    Had myself a Cabaiguan Guapo that was been sleeping for 6 months. This is a new one for me. Overall it was ok, just didn't get me excited.

    Had about an hour drive to the airport tonight...with last cigar.com buy I got their house sampler...so I grabbed a cigar.com cuban label. No offense to cigar.com but I wasnt expecting much...but I was pleasantly suprised...the cigar drew and burned well and had decent flavor.....not an amazing smoke or any excitement but for the price its a pretty good smoke..........well done cigar.com

    yes, the cigar.com cuban label is very good.

    Camacho Diploma for me tonight
  • It is not night but right now I am smoking a pepin garcia vegas cubanas.
  • ashmasterashmaster Posts: 237
    I had a Padilla Obsidian (original release) that had been aging 18 months and really didn't care for it. I have had a few with the same results, the flavor profile and I just don't get along. With that, I fired up a Rocky Patel Corojo Edge and enjoyed.
  • Today I had a Gurkha Titan and a CAO 65th Anniversary.

    with a 3.5 hour ride home from a trip to NY City today before i left this morning i chose a Monticristo Media Noche churchill. What a sweet 2.5 hour smoke, literally it was sweet! A very well balanced cosistant smoke with a good punch right to the very end.

    Despite being 29 degrees outside, I decided to light up an A Fuente Rothschild Maduro and take a walk... it's a bit "woody" and peppery for my novice pallete... it tended to dry my mouth.

    I still lean toward the Acid One for now...

    rockey patel sun grown toro. It started off alittle spicy but has mellowed out now that I'm halfway through it

    One of the Nicaraguan Primeros (Churchill).  Shameless plug for the site but these have  made it into regular rotation around here.  Great smoke for the $.

    Last night had a 3 hour drive back to the place where I work...lit up a punch gran puro and was floored by the cigar. I detected so many flavors and it was awesome right up to the end. Might actually have to buy a box now

    Just finished a Cigar.Com Red label Torpedo...and dang if it has not aged quite nicely at one year ;)
  • ashmasterashmaster Posts: 237
    Had myself an Oliva Series G Maduro Torpedo tonight. Not a bad smoke, especially for the $$$. Pretty smooth, an occasional hint of spice, a little maduro sweetness, with a bit of coffee.

    Had my first RP Vintage 1990 today, and all I can say is "WoW!" What a very enjoyable cigar :D Definately made it to my "Buy a box" list ;)

    Had a Rocky Patel Decade robusto. Awesome smoke. Highly recommend to anyone that has not tried it. Had some leather, wood and earth notes with a hint of sweetness. Nice medium body smoke.

    Last night was a 5 Vegas Serie A...I was sadly disappointed. The cigar was a maduro wrapper and very veiny. Didnt have much problems with the draw or the burn but found the cigar to unexciting to my palate. Flavors of leather throughout..without many flavors. A few good puffs though...wouldnt totally discredit the cigar

    today was the first day in a while the sun was out, and it was fairly warm, about 57. I went to the park down the street, backed my jeep up to a park bench, turned on the tunes and smoked my cares away. Had a monte #2, as always a wonderfull smoke. had about 3 years on it in my humi.

    cigar.com blue label...mild and creamy...with good flavors at the end....cigar.com still ceases to amaze me
