    I wish I'd exercised such restraint last night also, smoked 2 more after I posted that, including a Camacho, and woke up in serious need of shaving my tongue..

    Try listerine, no hint of it in the morning.

    I gargled with Tequila.. Seemed to do the trick.. [​IMG]

    Taking the edge off right now with a Tatuaje Cojonu 2006 torpedo. Very nice first 3/4, but the nub is a little blah, and burning hot.

    I am really starting to wonder if there can be a better, more consistent cigar, than the Oliva Serie V lancero.

    I take back the unfunny comment.

    Agreed, shit is more consistent than kobe bryant however frankly I have grown tired of the taste. Just had a brazilia that's been in the humi for a couple months very smooth and enjoyable.

    I have found the same thing with the Brazilia. Smoked a few in the store where I bought them and they were just okay. Smoked a few that I have let sit in the humi for a while and they seemed more creamy and well-rounded.

    I'd never had a Tatuaje before, so I got a Tatuaje Brown Regios Reserva.
    Honestly, my first reaction is just: Wow. Beautiful cigar. Nicaraguan puro, all first generation Cuban seed. Really fragrant dark brown Corojo wrapper. The construction is simply perfect on this cigar. It felt sturdy in my hands.

    The light was easy and even, and the draw was really great. Clean, a little bit of resistance, but not too much. I lost my cutter and had to use a v-cutter. I hadn't ever used one before, but I actually liked it. I think I may stick with it for a while.

    The ash was light gray and tight. Held on really well, 2 1/2 inches at one point. Aroma was quite nice. Warmly spicy. The flavor was also good. Earthy, smooth dark chocolate, and a little hint at some sweet creaminess underneath. I got a little bit of tang with it, also. Almost bitter at times, but I think I may have been smoking it too quickly at the time I tasted that. Starts off medium bodied and ends up pretty full.
    This was a $13 cigar here. If I had that kind of money, this would be a weekly smoke for me. I was very impressed with it. I would recommend it to anyone to try at least once.

    Had some nice pics, but they didn't turn out right. Anyway, smoke lasted about 1h45m. Enjoyable from start to finish.

    Edit: Almost forgot to add: I dont know if it was the fact that I haven't smoked in a while, or it was this cigar, but this thing really kicked my ass. In a good way.

    Maybe you just suck at smoking.

    It was nearly perfect for me. A cigar's draw should be like a woman's vagina. Loose enough to make it easy, but tight enough to make it fun.

    Try using your dick instead of your arm.

    I'm a little drunk on the Tatuaje punch at the moment as well. The tainos are my particular poison. really excellent cigar but for a few more bucks the VSG spellbound prevails.

    I haven't been let down with any brown label Tatuaje before. Not too keen on the red label stuff though.
