    Not smoked many since coming back from Habana,weather in NYC way too cold and I'm an outdoor smoker!
    A few smokes with my cousins husband in Minnesota (poor chap is limited to one cigar a month by my cousin so I made a point of smoking one every night for the 3 nights I was there visiting!)
    JL #1 - first try,liked it but need aging
    MUO '14 Sig II-with cheap bubbles,been a while and like a lot
    HdM Elegantes-haven't liked these at all of the two I've sampled.
    Sir Winston at Club Mac with Karl aka @Ascotshoes whilst he was in NYC last week and a forthcoming MTO
    Padron this Weds as it seemed fitting - wasn't impressed
    CoRo last night-crap

    I've had two back to back Toboada weekends. This one I can post photos from. The cigars were acquired by a friend in Havana in 2004 from Toboada -- which is primarily what he smoked while my friend was there on that trip. These were the last five from the bundle. The blend was Toboada 'strong' (which, trust me, can be *very* hearty), but after 13 years they had mellowed out to a pleasant place. I would have preferred it to have a little more punch, but the flavors and strength were great for the group overall. We enjoyed the cigars with some 2002 Franc Bonneville champagne from a magnum, while waiting for a prime rib roast to finish cooking. It does not get much better than this (I will spare you the details of the amazing wines and whiskeys we had :) ).

    ESGs rarely disappoint when I have time I need to kill. Smoke them down to the nub

    Had a fantastic 2000 Montecristo Especial No. 1 last week. Phenomenal. Despite draw issues for this narrow ring gauge cigar in some years, this box has been perfect (possibly because it shares a box code with Lanceros of the same month :)). I've given away a lot of this box over the years and am now down to slowly treasuring the last few, and enjoying the thought of the pleasure I've shared with others. I'll post a few photos of the Toboadas I referenced in the post above.
