    You need to procure the oscuro version of this next time.

    I'd love to, but I've never seen them in my neck of the woods.

    ^that sucks

    You'll like the oscuro it's rich and oily goodness is very unique and smooth. I can't believe nobody else is on these. Now that my humi is working properly they've retained the sheen (maybe even more so now) than when I first got them. Delicious.

    Smoked a box pressed brazilia that I dug up on the patio and must say I still enjoyed it after the hiatus all these months. Not terribly complex yet still delightful.

    Yours went yesterday, let me know what you think.. Thanks again..

    Smoking a CAO La Traviata robusto right now, think it may be a little dry as I am not as impressed as I have been with these cigars.

    Smoking a nice 08 Punch DC to take the edge off. Fairly mild, but very pleasant.

    Enjoy. You'll love the Illusiones, they are among my favorite smokes. That little No. 2 packs a ton of flavor, and the MJ12 is one of the best smokes out there. I swore off Gurkha altogether a year or so ago, too much money for the taste, but my B&M convinced me to try the Evil and I was sold. I think you'll like it also..

    Great selection of smokes. Careful of that No. 2, its really strong. [​IMG]
