I have been smoking an "Ancient Warrior" for about 3 hours now....

...and it is only half over. Stays lit with a great ash. Surprisingly mild but with a lot of smoke. Easy draw and good flavor. This is a Gurkha, right..?

Want to put it down and get ready for bed but I am afraid it will suck out all the air in the universe...

    Least I could do, after all, I picked it up.

    But I am still surprised at how good a smoke it was, I mean, its a Gurkha and every Gurkha I have smoked has been a disappointment.

    My wife gave me a LFD DL 700. At 6.5 x 60, I'm expecting to not even attempt it until the weather gets a lot warmer. I tried to emphasize to her that I liked smaller stuff...oh well, she saw I didn't have any large smokes and wanted to get me one to try. Now, she can't complain when I take that long to smoke it. And I told her I liked the chisel or chiselito...
    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    Glad you enjoyed it. It's had rest for about 1 year and 3 months.

    1 year and 3 months is about how long it takes me to finish a bottle of Scotch, perfect timing.

    Been meaning to ask: That time you picked up the universe, where did you stand?

    “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)



    Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.

    Oh for pity's sake...I picked up the cigar....it was attached to the universe.

    It ended up being over 4 hours and it was a total pleasure all the way.

    I've actually always wanted to try one. What kind of wrapper is on them? I remember being interested in them, and I actually think the size is pretty cool.

    I'm glad it was good! That is one monster stick though.

    Plan a long afternoon in a quiet place and cool weather, when you are just relaxing and reflecting on good things. I kept putting it down for longer and longer periods and it never failed to stay lit. Since I am now forewarned I will plan, the next time, a long sit on the porch with my outside dogs and a really big ice tea. It will be one of life's better moments.

    I've smoked two and yeah they last some time. I thought it was a decent smoke, just too long for me (hehe). One thing I've found is that cigars over 1.5 hours are rough for me to smoke. Maybe I just need to hang around more cigar smokers or something.
