The Sunday morning Coffee & Ashdrop.
Arturo Fuente - Rosado Gran Reserva.
I've come to the distinct conclusion, that Cigar smoking is not nearly as enjoyable when it's 105 degrees outside.
Was outside Grilling up a fine Salmon fillet, and enjoying a good Cigar. The skies opened up with Monsoon fury.
Enjoying a Don Peppin Cuban Classic, after a bloody T-bone. First steak in over 10 days, I hope the steak doesn’t kill my stomach
Oliva G Box Pressed
Not as good but nowadays is there a participant trophy? Can we get some more pictures?
Like Christmas in July.....sort of.....I had to pay for it. Just received my first order from the Cigars International online Candy store.
AJ Fernandez 20 Cigar Mega Sampler
Diesel, Man o War, Relic, and others.
Also got a smokin deal on a 15 Cigar bundle of, Don Pepin Garcia Original "Blue"
$74.99 works out to $5.00 each. My local shop has a sticker price of $10.75 each, not including the discount they give me. Very happy with this online deal.
A new torch" and some Boveda packs. My Collibri decided to quit on me.
All Cigars are fresh, and in good condition.
Brent. Let me know how you like the Man of wars. I haven’t tried those yet.
Will do. I have been keen on trying the Man O War, and that particular line of AJ Fernandez Cigars. My local shop doesnt carry them, so I figured this sampler would be a good place to start.
Cohibas. Took some and a bottle of good scotch to Africa last time to toast the buffalo I hoped to get.
Does South Africa charge any duty fees? I am curious how that works.

Thank you Jerome. Very informative.!
Well....I was going to let these Cigars sit for a couple days, but ....
Man' O War - Ruination Robusto
I think there is a good reason they named it "Ruination". Ligero wrapper & Fillers. This is a very feisty Cigar. You will want to have it after a good meal. It is very full bodied & strong. Very firm pack, good burn & draw. Quality roll.
At first light, it was a full blast of a Cayenne or red type pepper, with a charcoal undertone, and other complex flavors. It smoothed out after a few minutes, but it is a very spicy cigar. Even outside in the desert heat, it added some more sweat to the experience. It is strong, and very robust, but I liked it.
If you are in the mood for strong, it won't let you down. Not an everyday type of Cigar, IMO.
I'm going to let it's Brothers sit for a week or so, and have another.
I've had them, and they are full body cigar, but milder than a quad maduro. I like them, and if I can get a good deal, I jump all over it and get them.
BTW gents, have you guys tried Cigar Bid? You can get some real good deals on a "Fall Back or Fall Back" type auction, you look at a listing of cigars that are on this list, and watch the price go down, and buy at the price you think it's a deal. The times I've done it, I always had a catalogue with me to make sure I'm not paying too much. Normally you can buy up to two five packs. I have a friend who buys all his cigars that way.
Thanks for the update. Sounds good if you’re looking for that spicy taste! It sure is hard letting your favs sit for a week or so!
I have become quite the fan of Diesels. That 10th anniversary is a fine smoke. I really liked the Diesel Rage too.
Haven’t tried. What would compare them to, or what is their character? Seen but not bought.
I'm just going to let the Man 'O War's sit for a week, before I have another. The rest are fair game. I will be "Thinning the herd" this weekend
