I got mine today. I got four nice cigars and a Xikar Element lighter. I've actually been meaning to buy this very lighter but never got around to it. Good taste my Jersey Friend!

I received my package today, and I cannot get over the overwhelming generosity of my secret Santa. Not one but two Casa Fuentes! An Anejo! And a few of my favorite smokes including a Padron and a 5 Vegas Torpedo not to mention a vast array of other terrific sticks. I'm pretty sure I know who they're from, but I won't say anything yet. BTW, I can't wait to try some of those chocolate-covered Macadamian nuts.

Thanks again, Brother!

Got mine today and all I can say is WOW! RP Sungrown, Short Story, La Aurora 1495 (my favorite cigar!) and three treats from an island south of Miami. Thanks a ton to whoever sent these, your package made my day.

Now I just have to resist the urge to spark one of these immediately.

Mine came today also. As I opened the box, I was hit with the wonderful aroma of fresh roasted coffee beans (I'll be grinding some of those tomorrow morning.) Once I finished sniffing the beans, I dug a little deeper into the box to find a bag of very nice cigars including selections from Torano, Gurkha, Monte and a PLPC (from an island somewhere). Under the cigars I found a Jimmy Buffett "Live at Wrigley Field" concert DVD. I guess I must have been good this year.

Thank you very much Santa

well ha ha, my secret santa is not only way above and beyond generous but apparantly has a great sense of humor as well- a "butane lighter" that when i tried to light it zapped me from here to kingdom come, lol...took me forever to fish it out of the garbage disposal where it landed when i had to fling it across the kitchen upon the initial shock...i think i wet myself i was laughing so hard...i tried to get my wife to "show" me how to use it but she's obviously smarter than me b/c she wouldnt give it a go...

now, on to the bombs to end all bombs...i received a

Xikar Xi3 cutter
opus X 'A'
Avo Legacy
a bolivar and cuba aliados each in an uber-yellowed cellophane
a Fonseca tissue wrapped ISOM
Tatuaje Cojuna 2006
Aurora Preferidos Cameroon Robusto
an Opus x Fuente Fuente
a Gurkha Master Select (i believe)

Its tough for "thank you" to do justice for such a generous gift, but whoever you are better get a bigger mailbox once i find out who you are...(although i think i might have an idea who) Merry xmas all!

Thanks Santa. More than I hoped for. All of the people here are generous beyound measure.

This is what I found in my box;

A Big Stinky butt tray.

Montecristo #1 '01

But the cigar from the Island way south of me is sweet. Way to kind Santa. You will need to keep those eyes peeled after the holidays are over.

Thanks to my Secret santa.

OMG I am totally blown away. I opend up my package and in cigar.com bag was a Vegas A and an Opus X Fuente Fuente and Pocket humidor. I was so happy as That was the same type of Opus I lost and I have been wanting to get a pocket humidor for away now. I was very happy and then I thought I would check out the pocket humidor and what do I find, but three more cigars, a torpedo El Cobre (I love these and Torp is one of my favorite shapes. Also there was a nice Onyx which I like, and a punch Rare Corojo. The last Rare Corojo I had was so tasty.

Thanks you so very much!

Santa just keeps on giving. Got another package today with a big ashtray in it. I really need one. The tin catering pan that I have been using looks aweful. Thank you very much.

And ... a nice selection of cigars including a Flor de Oliva Giant, Padron 4000, Perdomo La Tradicion Reserve Cameroon R, CAO Brazilia Ipanema, 5 Vegas Limitada 2006, and CAO Gold Churchill.

A BIG Thank You Very Much to my Secret Santa!!!

I got a pleasant surprise when I got home from work last night. My Amback Santa had left me a box set of 3 Cohibas with a Cohiba branded xikar cutter and a 4 pack of R&J Reserve maduros. Thank you Santa! I guess I was a good boy this year.

Thanks so much to my Santa! How did you know I wanted to try a Don Carlos Belicosa and Partagas Black? All of them are cooking in the humi, just waiting to become ashes.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas!
