Last year I had major problems with Nubs lighting. So I put a couple away for 9 months at 62 humidity. So tonight is the night...and fail...

The damn thing wouldn't light with a butane lighter unless it was held directly in the flame for over 3 minutes. Needless to say it was ruined. I give up on Nub :S Rant:

Haven't smoked much the past week with the smoke in the air from all the forest fires but got a couple in last night.
CLE Connecticut: The gent that started the Camacho line produced this. Good smoke - on the lighter side but burnt pretty well.

Padron - always enjoyable

@Brent in Az, I like those Espada, they are very good cigars.

@curtism1234, sorry to hear about you having such bad luck with Nubs. I like them, and so far no issues. I wonder if it was a bad batch?

@Uncle Sauce, I am a huge fan of Padrons. Unfortunately they are hard to find on sale, and my mom has not gone to Nicaragua this year. She buys them for me at the duty free. I met Jose Padron Sr. A very nice gentlemen with a wealth of cigar knowledge. I was lucky enough to receive a 4 pack of Padron 3000s from him. My girlfriend helped his wife get an appointment at the clinic she worked at. :):)

Man - I need to hang out with you! Got to meet Padron Sr. and free cigars! :) I would be honored to meet the man behind those fine cigars.
Your right though - difficult to find on sale but it does make it more of a treat when I get to fire one up!

Enjoying an AVO Nicaragua with some well deserved cooler weather.

Got on the golf course today for the first time all year for my Masonic Lodge's Golf Outing. I don't drink on the course, but don't play a hole without a cigar.

Today's first selection has been my favorite golf cigar for a couple years. Original Key West Cigar Factory El Grande. A 52x9 delight. Lasts me 12 holes of duffer preferred ball.

Well, got out of my usual comfort zone and fired up this 601 Blue Maduro to see what it was all about. It is very much the full bodied, peppery, creamy, earthy smoke. Lots of good smoke from start to finish, but as I said, very bold. Constructed well, burned quite even. At $7 a stick from CI, I will order again. Definitely not for the mild cigar, or only occasional, cigar smoker.

These are the best $5 sticks I've ever smoked. They are even better then some $15 sticks that I've had. They don't come with any bands on them. I'm looking around the internet to see if I can find some bundles.
I purchased a handful of these from my local shop, by the singles.

So far nothing. Sometimes the shops have connections that we can't get from online retailers? I'll keep looking.

I do have a big order coming in from CI, with some blends I haven't tried yet.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
