    Montecristo Petit Edmundo for me tonight. My all time favorite smoke in celebration of my niece being born this morning.

    Do they actually ship to the US? Says they won't because of bs laws and such. My buddy just got his hands on a box of legit stuff and tossed me a couple sticks. Would like to repay him someday soon.

    What did you think? Any particular tasting notes?

    I just got one in the mail yesterday so I'm letting it rest for a while but really excited to try it.

    I really enjoyed it. Hints of cacao and espresso. I am lucky to have 2 more of them.

    Tonight I’m enjoying a Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo with Eagle Rare bourbon while grilling some back straps.

    Ok guys, don't laugh at the newbie here. Been watching this thread for awhile and stopped by a local tobacco shop this afternoon when I left the liquor store. I had no clue what I wanted and the kid working in the shop knew little more than I did. He ended up suggesting an Acid Blondie because he said it was one of their best sellers, and at $7 I was game. Gonna light it up tonight, after my wife and daughter go to bed, while I sip on some bourbon on the porch. Any suggestions for a newbie?

    Light it up and enjoy. I like those for a shorter smoke. I prefer the blondie maduro but the blondie is a good smoke also. Google how to cut properly so you get a good draw and not ruin the cap, light evenly and you will be fine.

    It started out very sweet and it almost lost me.....after learning how to NOT inhale and kill myself it's actually gotten much better. I'm about 1/3 of the way through and I'm actually enjoying it. Skynyrd on Pandora and Crown Black doesn't hurt either.

    Yeah don't inhale cigars. Acid cigars are oil infused so they will be sweet. The tabak series is coffee blended and very delicious. I also love the liga privada #9. I am very fond of drew estate cigars.

    Me too!

    Cigar Safari is on my list, but the wife said that's not a "family" vacation idea, that's a ""guys" vacation... Still working on it...

    For Christmas my wife and I got each other a large fire bowl. We fired it up for the first time last night with a Montechristo, tequila and my son & his family. Good times. IMG_5265.JPG

    Fire bowl is lit, bourbon is poured, time to light the Christmas present from the shop in Asheville I popped into. Casablanca cigars. Great selection and awesome little cigar bar to sit a spell and have a smoke. Didn't have time for that yesterday, but would definitely stop back again when were in town. Highly recommended...

    Decided to go with a short smoke this afternoon cause it was cold as hell outside, chose an Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story. First time smoking a perfecto, it had a great flavor, easy draw, and plenty of smoke. Looking forward to trying the maduro version that’s in the humidor.

    Enjoying a Mi Querida and a Dirtbag Ales Kolsch at the local cigar shop this evening.

    This is my second cigar from Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust and it’s quickly becoming a new favorite.

    Enjoying an H. Upmann Half Corona tonight. Perfect weather for a smoke and a nice way to begin the holiday weekend.

    Well, that's when you just double down on the scotch or bourbon at the same time

    Rainy weather is perfect for smoking a Monte Petit Edmundo with some BRCC CAF out in the shed.

    Had a Acid Deep Dish last Thursday. I can see the bottom of my humidor. Time to re-order.
