Well, humidor back ordered until August. Damn Chinese can’t export anything but propaganda right now apparently. Oh well, just have to smoke more and faster until August. Just saying.

I tried a Punch Diablo a little while back and it was a beast. I recommend it.
I’m trying to decide what’s next up. Perdomo, Oliva, or CAO.
I got a cigar magazine in the mail last week and it has been calling me like a siren! So many deals...now I am jonesing. Ugh, I am going to the store.

Drew Estate Shady XX on the morning walk compliments of @PARA45 and the Misfit Mafia! It was a great morning, not too cold, little wind and in the back of my mind I know I have a little over 48 hours until wheels up for Africa! Pretty excited :giggle:

Just a little warm up for Africa. Opening morning 2 Yr old in Ky. 9-1/2 beard, 3/4” spurs. 7:53AM. One El Rey Del Mundo and a Camacho Corojo before he ran in trying to mug my jake decoy at 15 yds. Several more Avo cigars back at camp. Great day to be alive.

33 days until my Brother and I board the first leg of our flights to SA. Checking, re-checking our “travel light” list. Pre-packing weight check, and re-second guess all of the above.

I suddenly realize my humidor is catostrophically low, and so an order is due to my favorite shop in Naples, Fl. What should I pick up

I definitely need a stash of Freedom Cigars house blends. And life is too damn short to not get a box of Ernesto’s Finest (a local treasure). But my mind wanders to the question of what cigar would be appropriate, historically, esoterically, or for any other reason would be noteworthy for company on Safari? What historical, memorable, notable hunter in Africa or any where on the globe can be identified with a particular cigar?

I ask for your suggestions and rationale why. Thank you in advance!

I have been sitting on a La Palina Maduro for a couple years now. I'm not sure why I waited so long as it is pretty darn good. Very spicy with heavy anise and clove with a woody secondary flavor. Billows of smoke and razer burn. May not be my favorite but I'll buy this again.

I have mistakingly paired it with el dorado 15 rum thinking the cigar would be sweet. I think it would go best with a rye.

Well, it was Saturday evening about 7:30. Cleaned and sliced a breast into about 1” cutlets, soaked in buttermilk, dusted with Big Spring Mills seasoned flour(order on line), and sauteed in cast iron skillet in olive or and butter. Mashed taters, white beans with ham hock, and Hawaiian rolls! Just saying.

Obviously cigar taste are individual. I typically take two cigars for two different reasons. One type for the daily smoke, in the buggy, before the stalk, or after the lunch break. I take these in volume. The other is a better type for before and after dinner around the bush TV. That cigar is usually a Partagas Series D No. 5 Cuban. The best cigar on the planet in my humble opinion.

For the all around smoke, I will be taking to Zim in May the My Father Le Bijou 1922 in the short Robusto size. A good 30-40 min smoke, won’t break the bank, as is great for those times when an hour or so is not available. Will also have several boxes of my usual daily smoke here which is an El Rey Del Mundo Cafe Au Lait, a maduro 15 min smoke for those sneek a cigar in times.

Best of luck and enjoy your safari and whatever you smoke regardless!

Mort,
I really appreciate your "purpose built" strategy on smoke selection.

1) Every day sticks of shorter and regular durations - satisfies those brief smoke windows and the possibility of having to discard/cast-away.

2) Favorite or special sticks for when time is not limited, and savoring the smoke is called for.

Well done sir!

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
