Your Plans for New Years and Your Cigar

The family and I are leaving for a 3 hour drive to Columbus Ohio to visit my brother and his family for New Years. I just posted in another thread that I don't like to smoke my premium/super premium sticks when it's cold outside because I feel I lose a little flavor and experience. I packed quite a few sticks and will have a Alec Bradley Harvest Selection Habano that was gifted to me by a fine BORK (sorry, I can't remember but thank you!) for my last cigar of 2010. I chose this because I love the 97 and believe this will be similar with a little extra punch from the Habano wrapper.

    On News Year Eve day I am heading to a local bar that still lets you smoke inside. I plan to have an RP vintage 90. I fell in love with this cigar this summer on the golf course. I figured go out with something that I know I will enjoy. I also plan to go out sometime on New Years Day to the same bar and enjoy another smoke. Probably one of the ones bombed to me Bandy or Sniper. There were so many to choose from. Happy New Years!!!

    Rob, not knowing what Glen sent you but out of the ones I sent you you may want to go with either the Gran Habano 3 Siglos or the Tatuaje Nobles, both have a good amount of time on them and are really good sticks. just my suggestion. I am sure whatever you choose will be good. Todd

    Probably gonna pick up a lobster tail and a bit of squid from Publix, steam the lobster and saute the squid in my own recipe, Awesome Sauce, then kick back with a Diesel d6 and some Astie Spumante (spelling?) - how will they pair? No idea, but it'll be fun to find out

    I'll be working and probably won't be able to have a smoke until the 2nd.

    Working until 2 tomorrow, then heading up to Pittsburgh for the Winter Classic. Thinking the Oliva Serie V I've been sitting on a while.

    Just going to have a quiet night at home with the family. When I was at Cigar Fest, AJ Fernandez rolled a Runiation for me on the stomach of the "virgin". I think I might start the new year at Midnight with that.

    I have a bottle of Pendleton Whiskey and I'm not sure what I will smoke. I am going to a party where I will be supplying the cigars. I am taking some inexpensive sticks as these guys are not big cigar nuts. They enjoy cigars but they aren't in to it like me. I will probably be smoking a La Perla Habana Rojo as that's what I'm taking. Who knows though, there my be a Litto Gomez Diez in the mix there....

    Jealous!

    We are headding to a friends cabin in Clear Lake, WI, my mom is taking the boys so I'll be able to get a few sticks in. Thinking a nice Fuente or Ashton for the ride up and a stick or 2 for the night though it might be too cold..

    I plan on smoking something special. If I can fit them in I hope to do a pretty intense match-up and see who I like more...
  • Russ55Russ55 Posts: 2,765
    I'll smoke something nice during the day, not sure what, and then spend the night inside with the family. New Years is my least favorite holiday.

    Well, this was the original plan . . . until I remembered I had to move out today since my lease ends at midnight. How does the old saying go? The best laid plans of mice and men, gang aft agley?

    At any rate, I've got everything packed up and ready to go, but I'm dog tired, so I'm spending New Years Eve in an empyty condo, drinking Corona and eating fried chicken, praying that my Landlord doesn't find out I'm staying until the morning. But hey, at least I picked up an AVO maduro No. 3 from a local B&M that I plan on smoking tonight :)

    A bundle of Man O War Armada, Ruination and Diesel Unlimited came from AJ to the house for christmas, all 5 x 42 size which is right in my wheel house. At least one of each will be smoked tonight!! Look for a sampler of some of AJs best blends in this size next year!!

    Thanks for the info. My plan today didn't go according to plan but I still got one in. The weather here got really nice for a couple of hours and I was able to fire one up on the deck. I still plan to go out tomorrow and I will bring with me one of the ones you recommended. Thanks again. Hope you have a happy new year!!
