Tried a Fonseca #1 last Friday night and, except for satisfying my curiosity, found it a total waste. It's like the menthol-lite of cigars. For what it was, it lasted entirely too long.

An evening of new friendship and sheer indulgence.

Yep, a good time was had by all. BTW, my apologies for leaving early and seeming a bit 'out of it' towards the end...i was actually pretty drunk by then (only 3 rums!). Luckily i made it back to the hotel fine and did not get sick. Some pretty good looking women were in the house.

You were certainly no more out of it than any of the rest of us. I don't know how it pays them to charge the normal price for three quarters of a glass of gin topped off with tonic, but I wasn't complaining. (They probably call the same thing served in a different glass a martini.) Glad to hear you made it back ok.

Yes, there were quite a few good looking women there. Many of them are friends of mine, and if a few of them hadn't left earlier and several others not attended at all, the beauty quotient would have been even higher. You just happened to come to the after party of Tokyo cruise night, which is always a completely outrageous scene. Welcome to Tokyo!

Next time we can make a point of going to the cigar bar and picking out some really special smokes.

Has anyone tried the new Winston Churchill line by Davidoff? I was recently at an event hosted by Davidoff as a promotion for the line and received one for free. They run about $15-20 depending on the cut you go with. For that price range, I don't think they're quite on par but an excellent smoke otherwise. A bit strong, somewhat reminiscent of a Padron '64 Anniversario, but maintains a nice creaminess as well. Definitely worth a try.

I really love the WC. It is a good afternoon smoke. To me, it is more medium bodied than full. The construction is flawless and the draw is perfect. I can see the juxtuposition with the 64, while it does have the fantastic balance of the padron, it dosent quite have the power of the anniversario.

Believe me, I do not take this for granted. Of course, having only smoked Cubans, I really can't make a comparison with what's available in the US. I'm sure there are some very fine smokes that aren't available here.

The Padilla 8/11 and 1932 lines are outstanding, especially in the Lancero vitola.
