I can relate. We had a really nice month of may and early June in Tucson. Never reached 100, which is rare. Supposed to be 107 by the middle of next week. We hit 115 last June, and that was freekin miserable as heck.Where in KSA?
I’m sitting out on my apartment balcony in Dharhan smoking a Fuente 8-5-8 as I type this..
Friggin miserable 109 degrees today... supposed to be getting hotter as the week goes on.. I think the high tomorrow is going to be 113
The guy at the cigar shop told me that when La Palina came out with the Black Label in 2015, they brought some in, but they didn't sell very well. The last few that they had were the remnants of that. Those few have been aging for quite awhile. I'm going to buy the last one when I go back.Glad you enjoyed it!
I brought some La Palina reds with me on this trip. I’m thinking I’ll probably spark one of those tonight
My rule of thumb is to not smoke a cigar until I've had it at least a month, and six months is even better. It's amazing how different the same cigar can be.
I was curious about the customer service, and quality of the shipped cigars. JR cigars, always seems to be out of stock on the various samplers that I am interested in. Cigars International has good samplers in stock, at very good prices.
Okay, only like this post if you smoke 365 or more cigars a year!
Mort Hill is the cigar king here for sure. He must spend $35,000 a year on cigars at least. I salute you sir!
My daily is the Honduran Punch After Dinner Oscuro. I have never had one of these that didn't draw perfectly and they are inexpensive enough (not cheap) for me to have one every day. But whatever I smoke I try to get the Churchill size.
I smoke about 10-12 Cigars per week. Most of the sticks I buy , average $7 - 12 bucks a stick. Based on that, my yearly cigar expenditure s would be $4000 plus.
I am not in the same tax bracket as Mort. LOL.
I like my local shop, but I need to go mail order and get more bang for my buck. I can smoke more, for less.
