    J Fuego winning by a big margin. No Torano fans here I see. Maybe next time i will do three different Torano's lol.

    I will head out to smoke around 7Pm MST so voting is still open. V-Herf if anyone else will be on.

    The J Fuego Origen won and I did my best to destroy the evidence.

    Examining the stick pre light found one minor flaw in the wrapper. No big deal especially for a stick that cost me $1.90. Nice firm feel and a nice chocolate Brazilian Corojo wrapper.

    Cut with Xi2 and toasted with a nice soft flame. First few puffs were a bit of spice and tons of smoke. Enjoying subtle flavors and perfect draw. (dont ask me for specific flavors as I dont have a good palate and I should probably call it my pallet)

    This sure doesnt seem like a 2 buck stick. This has great flavor and perfect burn. The wrapper did split a bit but didnt affect anything. Nice firm long ash too. Everyone likes a firm ash.

    I tend to smoke slow and this robusto lasted over an hour and a half. Longer than I expected. Maintained a nice spicy flavor and perfect burn. Burned clean past the wrapper issue with no ill effects. No wild life tonight but I did try out my new woodshed aka smoke shed.

    image

    I really enjoyed this stick. Dont let the price fool you this is a fine smoke. In a blind test I would never have guessed. Smoked this down to the nub and enjoyed every second. Your taste may be different than mine but I suspect most people will really enjoy this stick.

    I put this one very high on my list and will always have them in my humidor. I also have the Maduro version and the Corojo Oscuro version and now I am expecting equally good things from them.

    Thanks to all who helped "Pick-My-Stick"

    Very nice Jim. I really enjoy the Origen Originals vitola for a great short smoke. Absolutely delicious!

    I appreciate the review, bro. Love the wood/smoke shed! Going to have to try some of these now.
