    Unfortunately, I don't have that option.

    I have decided that in our next place I will have a smoking room though. I think if I can set it up so that the smoke will not infiltrate the house I'll be all set.

    I'm lucky to have my grlfriends dad who pretty much can build anything. I think I'm going install glass windows and insulation in my screened in porch so I can use it all year. It's obviously seperated from the rest of the house. It'd be perfect.

    Having a tatauje black tubo. Excellent cigar. Might like this more than the red. It's close.

    Smoking a CAO La Traviata robusto tonight. May try a different vitola this weekend, but damn, might be hard to beat the robusto.

    Smoked a trini cigarillo I was bagging on a month or two ago. Took it out the wrapper and smelled just like dudu I almost threw it out. I thought what the hell and it turned out to be a decent 20 minute smoke after all.

    Also add some water to my travel humidor which I hadn't opened in nearly 3 weeks and almost had a heart attack. My 02 lgc along 09 oliva maduro looked to have mold over the entire length of the cigars (psd4 was unscathed). Luckily it was just plume as it just wiped right off jet was about to be very angry. They smell delicious so I think I will smoke all 3 this weekend since I forgot about them. This dunhill is amazing not to mention pimp as fuck LK status.

    I might have to try an 80. That's a lot of money for one cigar. Did you have a natural or maduro?
    It was a maduro. If you can score a deal on one or get one for free then by all means, but at 30 bucks it's really pushing it...
    40/44/45/80 are great cigars, but of course not with 30 bucks. I think the 40 is the best of all of them and I think the natural has the most balance.
    have only had the 45 and 80 and I thought that 45 was just horse shit! Certainly smooth, but I could not pick up any real flavours from it. 80 is certainly better.
    I had an 80 some time ago just to give it a shot. Long story short, nice smoke, not worth the money.
    Absolutely agree with you on that. One of the guys from my local lounge can supposedly get them for 17 a pop so at that price I'd probably grab a box, otherwise I feel that my money would go further with habanos.

    You will love the LGC, whatever it is, they are just fantastic smokes! I'm actually trying to just move to MdO #1s so I'm slowly getting rid of my stock of others. I'm down to a few boxes of '02 MdO #4 so if any of you guys are interested then let me know.

    I thought plume is a byproduct of aging for a long time and not 3 weeks long. It very well could have been white mold, which is definitely the lesser of two evils compared to blue/green mold. plume is also more crystalline in structure being evenly distributed over the whole cigar and doesn't wipe off too easily. mold has more a powdery structure that appear as blotches on your cigar.

    You should see if there are any VR Maestros in the shops around you...really really good '07 regional release for Spain, hard to find these days...there were 20k boxes of 10. Never had that partagas so I'd roll with the Famosos.

    another cheap great tubos are the Upmann coronas major...nice flavor and dunno what they run where you're at but they are ~100 US in other parts of Europe.

    I enjoyed a Santos double robusto last night (Santos is a master roller, like Mons or Taboada).

    The construction was impeccable and the tobacco outstanding. One of the great cigars from one of the great masters.

    I realize I rarely post photos, so here's one:
