    Must be bang-for-your-buck night at the Gnattys. Both of those are great values. [​IMG]

    I gave that AB Tempus another shot today. Much better! Full flavored, lots of pepper and coffee. Burn still sucked a little, but not as bad as the first one I had. Definitely worth trying.


    lol, yes, you could call it that, but the Patel Brothers robustos here are close to $10, which is pretty middle of the road in terms of price. This is one of my favorite cigars these days, and my go to when I want a consistent, flavorful smoke. The Lot B was better then I remembered, it's been about 6 months since I cracked that one.

    It was pretty good, but I am surprised it was that old, it was really aggressive for a cigar with age on it. Do you recall what the name of the cigar was?

    Have you ever had a Padilla Dominus? It was kind of like that, but less sweet. I don't think that Obsidians are worth tracking down, but if you get stuff from Cbid you may as well pay $5 for one and tack it on to your order.


    Had one of the Dominus and just did not like it at all. Wonder if that was my version of your Tempus and worth another shot?

    Somebody recommend me something there's no chance in hell I've tried (most of you guys should have a pretty good idea of my usuals) in a robusto. Medium to full, preferably full, with lots of smoke and good burn.

    $10 for something that you know is going to be good is a bargain in my book. I pay more than that for cigars that end up being horrible all the time! Haven't had Lot B in a while either, will have to revisit it sometime.

    In terms of something you haven't had there are two new cigars on the market that ought to be pretty good. The fist is a Drew's Estate and Illusioni confab called Nosotros and the second is Pepin called Jamie Garcia Reserve. Both of them ought to fit the bill in terms of what you are looking for, if you can find them. I haven't seen them yet, but the folks at my B&M say that the Nostros ought to be in any day now.

    Graycliff grand cru. Supposivly a Davidoff exclusive, but I've seen it other places. More of a medium bodied creamy smoke, very well balanced. Not usually my style, but it was good. It's a lancer too, so totally opposite of what you've asked for. The Winston churchills by Davidoff are really good, try them.

    I'm about half way through mine and it is fantastic. I think they needed a little rest or maybe I ha a bad stick but this one tonight is remarkable. I have had a few 9s but these are much more pleasing on my pallette.



    Cigar 2 of the night.

    Fuente Queen B sungrown. Medium bodied. Hints of coffee, wood, and a slight taste of raisins of all things. Half way through chocolate comes into play. Very good cigar. I will be the first to say that I'm not a huge fuente fan outside of opus and anejos but this one is wonderful.

    Bought a box of La Aroma de Cuba Robustos & LFD Air Bender Maestro (robusto size-ish). Like the La Aromas, not sure as to why I picked up the Air Bender box. Hopefully it gets better than the few I've smoked so far.

    Also, going to UPS to pick up my humidor (they tried to deliver today, but no one was home) tomorrow, and seasoning will begin shortly, once my Boveda for the hygrometer comes & I can adequately calibrate it (I want to do as little work as possible in calibration... plus in a college apartment, salt test could end badly). Next box on my list: CAO Mx2.

    Any suggestions on cigars to fill my 250 count box with? My B&M, and another near here, has Opus X's in stock (mine has the Double Robustos, not sure about the other), so those will be slowly added & aged in my humi. I read some favorable reviews about the CAO La Traviata, anyone have any experience with it? And I'm assuming the Liga Privada will be a suggested pick?

    I'm going to the B&M tomorrow to sample some more...
