Amazing! I was gifted one by a good friend years ago, it's a superb cigar. Would trade both kidneys for a box.

Love P1, such a perfect smoke, more complexity and nuance than the P2 for me.

Have you tried the 898 yet? Just got my 2 boxes as well.

Nice little bonfire of old boxes last weekend:

Damn Jamie, I need a cab box to store and age odd sticks!

Only puffed on one wasn't impressed. I will need to get those LREs or ULAs.

There were two Tang cigars produced -- both H. Umpann. The Monarcha and a No. 2. The No. 2s, at least when I was hunting, were harder to find and I never obtained more than a couple. I have a pair of the No. 2s waiting for a good friend and an excuse.

Speaking of excuses, if anyone here on SF who is serious about (or seriously interested in) cigars wants to meet up, drop me a line. I'm in the SF Bay Area (Peninsula).

My wife is from Sacramento, and when we are back, we usually spend a day or two in SF, so I may just take you up on that.. I'll buy the drinks if you bring the cigars.. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Here was yesterday's cigar: 2007 Trinidad LE.

The profile was refined-rustic. Plenty of "twang" up front -- with pepper, wood, and "aged tobacco." This is not a faint hearted cigar, typical of the Trinidad line. The draw was a touch tight on this, necessitating a couple of re-lights after ashing. Lots of spice on the tobacco throughout this cigar, which are more integrated now than they were on release. If you have these but have not tried one in a while, I recommend revisiting this cigar given (if yours are like mine in the maturation cycle) that they are coming of age. I expected more from the construction, and they lack the elegance (both in flavor profile in in wrapper construction) of Fundadores, but they are definitely a unique cigar -- and drink friendly. I sampled water, fresh roast coffee (black and with cream), a Lagunitas Brown Shugga, and some Thomas Handy antique collection (an older release) with this. I'm not sure I hit the mark with any of these but do note that this cigar can stand up to (and probably even complement) a beverage -- I'd suggest an aged Pu Erh tea or something else to play off the unusual spice notes in this cigar.

I'll be damned if the new Tatuaje Faust isn't one of the tastiest cigars I've smoked in a very long time. It's a strong cigar, with very in your face flavors, but I liked it so much, I picked up a box for a near daily smoker. Anyone else try these??

Lovely mild but flavoursome smoke today in the sun but bitterly cold in NYC. Discontinued Quai d'Orsay Panatela from ABR '06 - another first for me trying QdO.I definitely could of done with a coffee, my fingers are still frozen! Thanks to a great BOTL back in the UK who split a 5er for me last Friday

Love qdo. Have never liked the trini ingenio sadly.

Had a pretty good sig vi from 09 yesterday, not a fan of the rg though.

I got a couple of the ULA d4s, we'll see if they're up to spec thanks for the tip J.

Had a good Monte 4 yesterday. Ordered HU PCs, RG PCs, and RyJ PCs today. Trying to fill out my new humidor... and rehumidifying my wineador. No prices on the 5 packs of 01 CoLas.

RyJ Short Churchill from a trade a few months ago LAS SEP14. Not having smoked many RyJ at all this was a nice change of flavour profile

Where do you guys in the colder climes smoke during these winter months? I have a roof area but it's been too bitterly cold for me to want to spend an hour or more out there... Do you go to cigar bars/lounges?
post #10364 of 10970
Yeah I go to my local shop a couple times a week to smoke cigars and hang out. I have a locker there with a couple boxes and 4 or 5 bottles of bourbon so I have my go-tos available if they're out.

I mainly smoke outside close to where I live, but to be honest the past few days has almost been unbearable. I occasionally will go to b&m stores/lounges when friends/colleagues visit.
