Kind of pricey but they have a huge walkin humidor and quite the selection.

Right now nothing... My tongue needs a rest. But yesterday I smoked 1 Nub CT. Then around 4 Habanos and 2 cameroons... Finally I capped the night off with something importeed.
What a wonderful day! Pictures will be posted soon in the cigar fest thread.

I love this thread, it is almost like a review column, and you get to see what people like to smoke. Me,... Today I broke out the Man O' War double corona. It was a rough shift at work, and that puppy gave me plenty of time to unwind. I think she's been sitting in the humi for a little over a month. I really didn't think that made that much of a difference, maybe a little more mellow. Anyhow, it was gooooooooooood.

I'm going to need to take a few days off from cigar smoking.....I estimate (from counting the saved bands) that I smoked around 17 cigars over the course of Friday night and all day Saturday

CigarFest was a freakin' blast!!!

I'm hoping to squeeze in a cigar tonight, with any luck in celebration of a Penguins win. It probably won't be a Nub though, as I had a few this weekend and I would like to give my newly gifted Nubs (Thanks Sam!) some time in the humi. Maybe one of my Oliva Connecticut Reserves...they're delish!

Got through the Oliva CT and the Cusano 18. Didn't like the Cusano very much but structurally it was very good. Burned very even, ash lasted about 2 inches before it fell - which is good for me.

The Oliva was a slightly different story - also well constructed but very tasty. I don't have any nubs right now but I thought since Oliva has been so good to Sam I could try an Olivastand? Haha! And some 'scenery' for your viewing pleasure... (the one on the right... duh)

Just finished my first ever Cohiba. Nice weather for a change and wind under 20 mph. The cigar was really good but I had to touch it up a few times due to the wind. I got three of the Cohibas with a limited edition 3 finger cigar case today and just needed to fire one up.

Way to go ChrisH, this thread is getting a work out!!

Anyway, thanks to CI and some of the special deals, I ended up with a lot of 5 Vegas at the beginning of March. I have had several, and although I found them to be a quality smoke, they never really grabbed my attention. To me 5 Vegas just seemed like another smoke. Remember everyones tastes are different.

So today I decided to give 5 Vegas another shot with the only Casket Strength stogie that I have. I can tell you that it had some hard hitter potential. Lots of flavor, that dark musky taste and aroma. That doesn't seem like a appetizing description, but it was actually really good. Lots of flavor. I found myself having to ease back the throttle a little and let the cigar smoke itself. I think as far as 5 Vegas goes in my book. This will probably be the one I keep a couple of around. Note: I have not had the Miami that you all have been chattin about yet.

Hope everyones day goes well. Oh yeah, I got Win7 RC1 up and running. If anyone ever thinks Vista sucks, consider upgrading when it is released. Ok, no more MS talk.

...well that certainly didn't happen!

Anyways, I am actually a fan of the 5V Classic. Some people have bad experiences with them, but all of mine have been good. Would I go out of my way to get them, probably not, but I still think they are decent. I believe it was Steve (EvilAsh) who was talking about the Cask Strength. Ill have to give it a whirl when I get around to it.

As for the Oliva Connie, I have 1 or 2 in my humi, but havnt smoked them yet. Since my birthday is Saturday, and as of now the weather is calling for Sun and 72 degrees, im sure I will smoke a variety to celebrate. The O-Con being 1 of them.

Brian, it wasn't me talking about the Cask Strength......but I probably was talking about the 5V Miami, which I think is a great smoke! I'm also excited to try the 5V Relic, which is new from them. It was actually one of the cigars being given away at their booth at CigarFest this year. After a little humi time, I'll be glad to share my thoughts on that one.

Thanks to Dave (Maverick), I too have an Oliva Conn. Reserve resting in my humi.....can't wait to spark up that beauty, it looks mighty tasty! Thanks again Dave!!!

Nope, sure didn't, damn it!

I too am a fan of the 5-Vegas classic and gold. I agree, they're not cigars that I will go out of my way to pick up, but they're nice to have around for the occassional smoke, and they're quite affordable as well. As for the Cask Strength, I am looking forward to picking some up soon, hopefully, as well as the Miami.

Brian, I think i'll smoke an O-Con with you saturday in celebration, I believe I have a few left in my humi as well. Steve, not a problem buddy!

While we're on the subject of 5 Vegas, I also recommend the Series A
A dark and bold Maduro

Wow, this thread IS getting a workout today!

The only 5 Vegas I've had yet was the gold, and it started to unravel due to a poor cut so I'm not sure I enjoyed it as much as I should have. I'd like to give it another try and also the Miami and Relic. For some reason the Relic looks like something I need to try...


Congrats on Windows7 toolman! I work in IT and while I can't say if we're upgrading any time soon (because the decision hasn't been made yet... but we skipped Vista) I will say that other guys at work are running Win7 at home and in the office and they say its impressive.

Actually Steve, I have a few of those Series A in my humidor, and I agree, they're pretty darn good. No where as good as the Nub Maduro I smoked the other day, but still pretty good.

I'm curious about Windows 7, I look forward to checking it out. I'm still using XP because it's the only way all my graphics software can still work properly...Vista is a debacle.

I agree Dave, it's not even close to being in the same league as the Nub Maduro!

But it's a good (and affordable) smoke

Today I decided to try something brand new. This is another single I bought while back home. It was a San Cristobal Classic. I think I bought it because it is advertised in every CA mag I have (only 3) and figured I would try it.

It actually was pretty good I thought. Somewhere between medium and full. I did however have burn issues throughout the entire cigar. That obviously put a damper on really getting to sit back and get my edges rounded off. I don't think it was a quality issue. It was quite breezy today and I had to use a bic lighter to fire it up so I am gonna blame improper lighting and weather. I did enjoy it enough to want to get a few more to try in the future. Then I went to CI and looked at the 5 pack price.....

That will just have to wait on that one. $40 for a 5 pack is a bit more than what I want to spend right now.

I've smoked one of the San Cristobal cigars in the "Fabuloso" (torpedo) size, and thought it was a great stick a few weeks back. I remember at the time considering it a medium smoke, but I also recall enjoying the subtle coffee and nutty flavors in the smoke. Certainly something I would pick up again for a change of pace (since it was a "lighter" smoke than I've been craving lately).

Glad you liked yours as well ToolMan

Last night at my weekly poker game I lit up a Padilla Miami Torp. This cigar had about 8 months humidor time on it. What a fantastic cigar. If the Miami NUB which is being made by Padilla is anything like this one we have a real treat in store for us.
AS to the San Cristobal, this cigar is a great cigar with volumes of flavor. There are just so expensive it hard to buy them often..
