    V. You are killing me knocking on high 60s. I'd take that every day.

    ama, MN is one of the worst states in terms of weather. MI isn't much better but it's not nearly as fucking cold in the winter.


    Had a cao sopranos last night. These are pretty good. Strong coffee and cocoa notes. As gimmicky as these are, the blend is superb. I would never pay retail on it, but they can be had for $5 or so on the webz.

    ^ I won't be joining you on a CAO kick. Not much of a fan.

    i love those. The last box had some serious pull issues though. Have they fixed it?

    I've read about that issue before but didn't experience any problems with that last stick. Maybe it's fixed, maybe I got lucky.

    understandable. i guess they are going through a very rough period with some serious quality issues. wrappers cracking, poor draw, etc. La Travs have steered clear of this. Rumor was that they might have switched factories for more established lines Brazilia, Italia, etc. Time will tell if the La Travs fall in the same pit.

    outside of the La Travs, Brazilias, and Sopranos, i'm not a fan of the brand. even those, i really would only have the La Travs on a regular basis.

    Still think brazilias are a great smoke, box pressed.

    Sacrificing a young 'un now, '08 Cohiba Lancero, on the balcony. Hotter than hell in Boston.

    edit: 98 Punch Churchill now from a tube...this would be a cigar I'd always like to have in the humidor. Really good--creamy, wood flavors, not nearly as tannic as the SS#1 or RS11/RS12.

    Way too hot to smoke outside right now. Maybe go for a stroll tonight with a Bolivar PC. A Monte 4 that I had yesterday was plugged to oblivion. I hate throwing away $5 like that.

    ^^ did you get my package. Sharks = chokers.


    Had an oliva v. Kicked my ass. Almost too much nic. Felt like there was triple the amount of ligero.

    My v maduros have been pretty smooth.

    Smoked an 08 mc2 earlier, pretty tasty though I doubt I will pick them up again.

    They'll be good in a year, they need more time.

    [​IMG] Solid cigar, good story behind it too. Might be my favorite sub 10 dollar cigar (in new york prices that is)

    Its called the 7 20 4, try it out, youll like it, great wrapper on it. I know you like Illusione, so try out the nosotros, its up your alley. Pepins son Jamie has a new cigar out thats pretty solid. Its called the Reserva Especial. If you like the My Father, youll love this. I think its better
