got my buddy into ccs as he wanted some guidance, got a sampler from rob and i chose the scdlh short, forget the name and wasn't bad

just had a demi tasse with some armenian coffee

Wasn't a huge fan of the Famosos. Not sure if my palate was the issue last night. Was a mild to medium at most. Got 3 more to revisit later

Monte Esp no.2 AUM MAR14. Really couldn't decide what to smoke tonight, not had one of these for a while so why not!? 😀 Good evening BOTL

Not you, I suspect the cigar. Trying to figure out what to smoke tomorrow, maybe an hdm dc.

Just had one of the coh vintage 07 Choix, sort of meh. Not as floral as I was expecting but needs some rest. How was the '14 esp2?

Esp 2 was good.Smooth and for me the usual Monte type flavours.I've never had an aged one so wouldn't be able to give a comparison but I enjoyed it.I've seen a few BOTL talking about these 07 on FoH.Only just tried Erdm (perhaps spoilt with that 1983 panatela larga) but need to try these Choix

Yesterday's Boxing day special!Visited the Nat Sherman townhouse this afternoon and smoked two.So many to choose from in their humidor, thought to pass my usual Nat Sherman Timeless and Tatuaje grabs and went with some I've never had.After Dinosaur BBQ for dinner, I treated myself to a Ramon Allones Superiores. Taste buds a little fried to say the least..
More confirmation that I have a preference for CC. Heading over there again this afternoon as my friend is in town so its somewhere to herf. Might try these so called Aficionado top cigars of 2015

Back at Nat Sherman townhouse again on Sunday but smoked my own after the experiences with non CC. No.2 from @Girardian sampler. Monte Especial from 2000-fought a tight draw that was managable (just) I think this took away from the expected experience but still a decent smooth and somewhat earthy/savoury flavours. The other is an assumed young Cohiba Corona Especial since it had the new band before I pulled it off. Last one from a 5er bought in Frankfurt airport in May. This one was spicier than the Monte and quite enjoyable. No smoke yesterday as I went back to work and evening rain...

PLPC at Cigar Inn tonight with a Singaporean BOTL. Second one I've had from this '14 cab, first one in August was so harsh, such a contrast today with 5 months extra rest...

Going to be in Manhattan (Midtown) 1/2-1/6 with my girlfriend and her family. Any recommendations for cigar bars to go to at night/after dinner? We're eating at Charlie Palmer's at the Knick (gf's cousin's recommendation), Giovanni Venti Cinque and Nobu Fifty Seven for dinner so far.

I read about the Carnegie Club, Club Macanudo, and Merchant's, and of course Grand Havana but I don't think I know any members of that place.

Any place I can bring my own cigars would be ace, but I'd be fine with a bar with great drinks and ventilation that allows me to smoke cigars (even if I have to buy them there)

I know you've not asked for dinner recommendations but if you're into steak please check out Strip House either Midtown or down town. Tomahawk steak for two plus black truffled creamed spinach, Mac n cheese and fries. Took friends on Sunday night-outstanding as always, my top consistent steakhouse this year and last!
I'm at Cigar Inn now the one at 73rd-be discrete, buy one and smoke your own. It's BYOB here too so you can make a saving there vs your standard cigar bar.
Nat Sherman townhouse is recommended for daytime smokes, again discretion should be observed and it's fantastic service and atmosphere there.
I went to Merchants once this year was ok, can smoke your own (cutting fee $5 if I remember correctly)
Macanudo's is pricey for drinks and smokes, take your own but again you'll be paying a cutting fee (think it was $15)
Carnegie club is a nice atmosphere, sticks are pricey and of course there is a fee to smoke your own.
Roof tops are likely out of the picture-had thought of the Knickerbocker hotel in Times Square tonight but clearly too cold (who have partnered with Nat Sherman so take your receipt for no cutting fee).
There's also a couple of Davidoff stores for daytime a smokes but no drinks.
I've not been to Soho Cigar bar yet but you could check that place out, looks pretty cool Art Deco.
I'm out of the country else I'd probably joined you to herf-next time!

Yeah I wish I had more flexibility on dinners, but my girlfriend's cousins, grandma and aunt and uncle were just in the city and her mom asked them for recommendations... I'm already ignoring their Italian recommendation (they said Due was good, but I have a connection to Giovanni) and my girlfriend and I take a night out every time we're in a city with a Nobu for dinner there, or at the very least for some drinks and the yellowtail and jalapeño. I will keep Strip House in mind for next time though! Thanks man.

I'd be fine with a cutting fee as long as the drinks are good and the ventilation is good (gf doesn't smoke cigars, and she wouldn't be happy with me if I drag her to a cigar bar and it's a smoky mess in there while I'm in my element). We're staying at the St Regis in Midtown, but between the subway and uber/cabs I'd be willing to make a trek as long as it's worth it and open fairly late.

Ventilation is a problem for me in most of the cigar bars to be honest (I prefer smoking outside even in the cold). Nat Sherman and Davidoff stores have good extraction but anywhere else isn't fantastic. Hope your gf can tolerate wherever you guys decide on going. All depends aswell on volume of people there vs smoke output I guess
