This morning's smoke was a Guardian of the Farm Nightwatch Orpheus. This is truly an outstanding cigar in every way. and less expensive than some that are equally good. I really recommend this one.

Alec Bradley - Superstition...did not burn very well. Might have been some of my fault though since I was looking for some stuff in my storage unit and was smoking it intermittently (where you have to move 20 items to find what your looking for!!). Had to relight a couple times.

Shhhhhhh....... Don't tell Mort, but the Cigar Page My Father sale ,has been extended until tomorrow.

I know. I know. One step ahead of you. I am now getting 3 emails a day from Cigar Page, so no secrets. Smoking a nice Carillo during the ball game. Started with a Camacho, then an Oscar 2012. Not really into the game, but the smokes are great.

I get blitzkrieged daily, with Cigar page emails.

This game is lopsided. I wasn't expecting the Chiefs to look so stagnant.

Looks like Brady will get ring #7.

Not a Brady fan since the Patriots always beat on the Dolphins, but was hoping for a better game.

Same here - I used to be a huge Dolphins fan back when Marino was there.

Today was my time to try the My Father Opulencia Petite. This cigar had a bit spicier bouquet than the others I'm comparing it to and the flavor was also more interesting. The construction was good with the only flaw being a somewhat rough wrapper. The whole "how rough or smooth a wrapper is the 'best'" subject is one I haven't explored, and I just go by what is visually appealing to me. Of course, we can start differentiating by saying the ultra smooth tobacco-paper finish is *not* one associated with fine cigars, but other than that, I don't know.

Somehow I accidentally ordered a bundle of the Oliva Flor de Oliva Lonsdale. This was 20 cigars at $44.00, so only $2.20 per stick. I had one this morning and it was a decent cigar. It just goes to show the rapidly diminishing returns that set in on higher priced cigars.

How about a bit more about those cigars, like where are they from, made, type of tobacco, etc, etc. :)

Had dinner from Fox Brothers BBQ, they came out on Man vs Food, and Dinners, Drive-Inns & Dives. I went to Atlanta today, and picked up dinner :). Now I’m relaxing while smoking a Camacho American Barrel Age

Very nice, I was not aware they were from Africa. So, how was your smoke?

After resting in the humidor for almost 2 weeks, I decided to try another Camacho Corojo. Much better then that first one. Maybe they did get shocked? The other Cigars in my order didn't seem to be affected?

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.
