I don't believe you.

Nah, I was just kidding. I'm too lazy to ever write a review like that.

I'm nothing more than an occasional cigar smoker, and I recently received a box of Monte Cristo White Court cigars (the tubed ones) as a gift. I've read some mixed advice about storing them, any thoughts on either the cigars or storage plans?

Had a long-ish (but not particularly stressful) day, and wasn't able to enjoy a smoke in the beautiful weather, but I had a little down time post-gym and decided to light up a smallish 1926 on the back porch. When I haven't had one of these in a little while, I convince myself that my love for Padron Anniversary series cigars is overblown, and that I've merely hyped up the experience. Then I smoke one, and I realize that they're way better than my memory had indicated. Huge amounts of thick, flavorful smoke; incredible aroma; even burn. I love these damned things. Once I've cut through some of the ridiculous backlog of sticks in my current humidor, and maybe set up slightly larger and more consistent storage solution I might have to treat myself to a box of them (possibly a graduation/passing the CPA gift to myself).

A buddy of mine (who is largely responsible for my love of cigars) used to run the local B&M in my hometown and would sometimes get these god-awful cheap sticks that suppliers would try to get him to sell. Instead, he had mini-herfs with a couple of guys where they would basically see who could bring the shittiest cigars. One cigar, the Zorro IIRC, was a faux oscuro (dyed) that took the all-time prize. Though most of the guys agreed it tasted like little more than a dog rocket, there was one guy that always did reviews like that (non-ironically, I might add). He decided that the Zorro "tasted of tomato vine." Weird part was, after laughing their asses off at the guy almost all of them realized he was oddly right.

Aren't tomato vines poisonous?

Anyone have any opinions on the Trinidad 40th? I think today's a BHK 52 kind of day.

Apparently so. I hadn't heard that before, but a quick Google search confirms that parts of the tomato plant are, indeed, poisonous.

One of the advantages of working from home: had a few emails to send and calls to make, so I'm on the back porch with a CAO America. Not sure which size, but it's relatively enormous. For some reason, it seems to be fairly dry, even though it's in my humidor (probably 68RH) with cigars that are perfectly fine, or even a little moist.

Nice looking smoke, but the wrapper is a little veiny. Draw's been a little tight, so I'm not 100% sure about the flavor yet.

Too cold for a smoke.

Will probably have the usual rascc with coffee at noon tomorrow followed by something nice in the afternoon.
