what did you smoke? 2

i brought it back without the clutter because i really enjoyed reading this topic. I just got home from work and it is time for a sancho panza (my first ever) and a glass of johnny walker black label (also my first ever, outside of drunk bar nights). Its a night for new things for me, what about all of you?

Well, for the first time, you aint holdin' nothin' back ! For me, I was off today so I had time to enjoy a Cuesta Rey #47 Robusto. Very good cigar, if you like mild cigars. It was accompanied by a tall glass of good ol' Southern sweet tea. Not a bad afternoon at all. Simp

Yeah, it's given me some ideas selection-wise. Today is an Ashton day:
Morning- Ashton Cabinet belicoso
Lunch- Ashton Heritage corona gorda (my first)
Tonight- Ashton VSG torpedo

I had a Fuente maduro Exquisito earlier, and now I'm off to have a Double Chateau Fuente in maduro.

Not sure what it is about these little smokes, but damn I had 4 today.
At $80 for 50 sticks I can afford to smoke them!
I also had a Partgas Short and a root beer soda.

cc and wolf, im going to search my fuente humidor and see if i have any of these because i haven't tried one. If not it sounds like i should pick one up and try it. $80 a box + something people will smoke all the time always gets my attention.

If you buy a box and don't like them I will buy them from you!

chateau fuente..currently my favorite smoke. At 3.50 a pop its not bad on the billfold. I like the natural wrapper over the maduro on this cigar. It seems alittle stronger to me. Have a double chateau I will be testing out in a week or two.

Last night I smoked a San Cristobal ce La Habana, La Punta.
It's a torpedo and I loved it! It was the first San Cris I've smoked and it was awsome, I smoked an Opus Super Beli after, and it completely changed how the Opus tasted....I should have started with the Opus...

Where are you guys finding those boxes for $80?? They're $109.95 for a box here on cigar.com. Hmm...

I lied...instead of having a Double Chateau, I had an 8-5-8 maduro. Just finished another Exquisito a few minutes ago...good stuff.

The other night I had a Peterson with my boyfriend and we were rather disappointed. It was mild and consistent but bland. The aroma was wonderful, I actually thought about just letting it burn so I could just smell it, but there was nothing in the taste. No spice, no fullness, no nothing! I was really excited about that one too!

tonight i had a cao l'anniversaire maduro. very smooth, a little plugged though, i saved it with a pin. still very nice smoke. the flavour didnt change through the whole smoke, i was suprised, the first inch seemed like it wanted to develope into something much stronger but it didnt. i would say it was on the same smoothness level as the c18. and a nice hint of chocolate was welcome. after that i filled up on pizza and beer while i watched lethal weapon. it was a good night.

This afternoon I had the Ashton Aged Maduro no. 60, and after dinner I fired up an Opus X Reserva D' Chateau. The Ashton had a near perfect burn while the RDC had to be re-lit twice. Luckily it has such a great aroma and full body that wasn't affected by the burn too much.

I am always having to relight my opusX and you are right, it doesnt matter with a taste like that.

Just finished that Double Chateau I spoke of earlier. Pretty good, but I think I like the 8-5-8 better.
