That is next on my list to smoke also (well, either that or the El Cobre Skipper gifted me!), but I'm still coughing like crazy and really congested.....so the cigars may have to wait a bit longer

Steve, I would just hold off on the El Cobre and give yourself a chance to clear up, that way you'll enjoy the smokes to their fullest. Besides, I'm sure you're tired of being sick.

Thanks guys, and yes, I am VERY tired of being sick....I am slightly less congested today than yesterday, so hopefully whatever this is is on the way out.

so many bugs running around. The other day I had this one...

The Center for Disease Control has issued a medical alert about a highly contagious, potentially dangerous virus that is transmitted orally, by hand, and even electronically.
This virus is called Weekly Overload Recreational Killer (WORK).
If you receive WORK from your boss, any of your colleagues or anyone else via any means whatsoever - DO NOT TOUCH IT!!! This virus will wipe out your private life entirely. If you should come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises.

Take two good friends to the nearest liquor store and purchase one or both of the antidotes - Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) and Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.

Haha, that's great!
I'll take your advice, I think tonight both of the antidotes should help!!!

I still have to get some Sol Cubano's, they just are not high enough on my list right now, trying to stock up on some other stuff. But tonight I had a Nub Cammie Torpedo, and a Gurka Grand Reserve #4 Robusto. Both are great smokes, I really like this Gurkha, and I am very cautious to make what I have lasts cause I have not been able to find any more, but honestly, the Cammie was a better smoke. It just hit the spot. Two great cigars, but I won't be having them on the same night again, I want to soak in that Gurkha, but after having a Cammie it's just not gonna happen.

Smoked an Oliva Serie G while I waited for the guys at the car wash to finish up with my car...nothing better than a good smoke, and a clean car.

Had a Cammie 464 Torp, Oliva Serie G, Oliva Serie V and an RP Decade.

Cammie was still a little dry (just got from CI last week) so I'll be laying off this shipment of nubs a bit longer - almost got quite the nubstand out of it too, but as inevitably happens I said "hey grab the camera!" and it all fell off Serie G was good as always. Serie V was better than I remember, especially after a good steak and with a glass of whiskey And the torpedo is way better than the 660 or whatever that double toro is...
RP Decade was good, too. I want to say it had a fruity flavor (citrus maybe?) but it wasn't infused. Just had a "different" quality that kept sending my mind toward fruit for some reason. Good, anyway.

I was pleasantly surprised by old mans recommendation at the B&M. He was pretty cool, too. Gave us some simple advice that made perfect sense but for some reason we hadn't thought of it yet. Up till now we would just light a cigar and draw on it until it stopped tasting very good (usually around an inch or so, less on some). He said to puff back through it every inch or so to "clear the gases" and that would keep the cigar tasty far longer. Some cigars I put out around two inches, some i can smoke straight to the bone (Connie included). I can't tell yet if his idea helped but i definitely tried it on the RP and the V last night and they smoked down pretty low!

I also tasted a Padron Nicaraguan Puro that my buddy picked up. At 2am and after a half liter of whiskey neither of us had much to say about it but there was something I remember liking so I'll be getting more.

This is called "purging" the cigar. I tend to do this towards the end of a few different cigars, but I don't normally need to do it Nubs....they are just perfect all the way through most of the time!

While blowing through the cigar, the tar and oils causing the undesired taste will be expelled

Right or wrong, I also hold a lit lighter at the end of the cigar when I blow out on it. I read about this online somewhere and the only thing I can think of is that it will keep that nasty smelling puff from infecting other cigar smokers around you..??

I do that as well Mike, sorry I forgot to mention it. Not sure exactly what the lighter does. I have tried purging without it, and the desired effect is still the same. I think you may be right about the use of the lighter getting rid of that nasty smell.....
