What did you Smoke Today?

3/29/05
I've seen this on another website, but can't see what everyone says, so I thought it's be interesting to see what people are smoking day to day.

Today my first Cigar was a an El Rey del Mundo Choix Supreme (ErdM CS) a generous Cuban Lover had sent me from 1998.

It was definately very harmonized and seemed pretty tame, then really came alive in the second half, I have to say I like the ERdM CS's right out of the box just as good, but I am fairly new to the Cuban game. It was a huge difference from the fresh ones, and can really tell what time did to this smoke.

I've had one of those Petit Rob's. The only problem I found was that I ran out of cigar! Fit the bill for a nice little coffee break though

Finishing up a H. Upmann Lonsdale from 01
Good smoke, but not ready yet.
I just recieved this box yesterday & I usually do not smoke anything when it first arrives.
It is a little moist and not smoking well, but I wanted to taste one before I hide the box away for 30 days.

Getting ready to go outside and smoke a Hoyo de Monterrey a friend gave me a couple of months ago. Weather is finally nice enough here in Michigan to set outside.

After lunch I had a Romeo y Julieta Exhibition No. 4 (Cuban). I am a casual cigar smoker (10 years now) but to me one of life's certain pleasures is a great cigar. IMO, this stick is one of them.

I think it's a medium to full flavor smoke with a slow burning Ligero blend; spicy but not peppery (little bite to it). The draw was perfect; not too soft and not too firm (just right as the baby bear in goldilocks might say, if lighting up on an early Spring day).

Add a glass of 75 year old Grand Marnier (neat) and you've got a great Caribbean way to spend part of your day.

Cien, natural poet?

75 year old, wow...can't say I've had the pleasure...

This year will be my tenth anni of cigar smoking as well, every year gets better and better, the more I smoke, the more I learn.

Can't ask for a better hobby, A fine cigar

Jrinam, it's been a while since you've smoked? I wuld say treat yourself to something you've heard a lot about, but haven't smoked yet, what haven't you tried that you always wanted to?

3PM a Padron 2000. Always a joy-my favorite as is the 3000.
Tonight aEl Rey Del Mundo Larga- will be my first try on this one.

I just finished a Cuesta Rey Centenario in maduro, not sure which particular stick. It was a larger ring size and about 6-7 inches in length. Best cigar I've tried so far. I smoked that sucker down to a nub. I'll be getting more of these for sure.

I smoked a Punch Rare Corojo Magnum. I haveonly smoked one other. This one seemd promising as it had wings, but could never find the runway. The burn Issues were incredible and a hardy struggle. I will definately smoke another to give it a fair shot. Not tonight though, I've got a Diploma, Davidoff Special R and a Super Beli all calling my name. I will try to make room for them all, but most likley will have to make a choice.


4/1/05...fortunately I did not have to make a choice, none of them made it home...

Ashton No. 10 Maduro. Rated it at an 85. These cigars have gone downhill over the past 5 years. Glad I only had a single and not a whole box.
