Tonight, I smoked a Rocky Patel Decade Toro. It's a box pressed smoke with very dark and oily wrapper. It lit very easily, and had a tremendous draw ... I'd have to say the best draw of any cigar I've smoked. And the smoke was very creamy, and there was lots of it. The taste was pretty sweet right off the bat, but with a lot of spice. This is a very complex smoke; a bit strong, but not overpowering, and very smooth. As I smoked it down to the nub -- and it was so good, I did smoke it to the nub -- it began to get a little hotter, and the sweetness diminished. I paired it with a glass of cabernet sauvignon, and I recommend that combo.

It set me back $10.99, but it was worth every penny. I highly recommend it.

Where is the Rocky Patel Decade Toro made, Ticoma?

I've heard that the Cubans make the very best. :wink:

The wrapper is a wonderfully dark and oily Ecuadorian leaf. The filler is from Nicaragua.

Cuban cigars are fine, but in my estimation, a little over-rated.

Apparently President Kennedy didn't think so. (If the story is correct. :wink: )

... Anyway, enjoy! Very Happy

Because it's Easter ('Happy Easter', btw), I'm having a cigar today as well ...

... and because tomorrow is a public holiday, too, and that cigar is too big for one day, I might finish it then.

A two-day cigar. Nice.


I suppose that one will start off AND finish sweet. :wink:

Carlos Fuente makes a bargain brand called "La Unica". Look for the La Unica 100 in the lighter rapper if you like a big light Cigar. I straight stopped with the strong stuff when I discovered them, and you can get a case for well under a $100 to boot.

Tonight I lit a box-pressed A. Turrent corona. Pulled it out of my humidor, and not real sure how long I've had it -- don't remember buying it.

It lit very easily and produced a tremendous amount of smoke. Not a real strong cigar, but has a very nice and subtle flavor. Not very peppery. "Creamy" is really the best description for it. A very enjoyable all-around smoke. Nubbed it.

I enjoyed it with a refreshing Fat Tire.

Tonight's cigar ... Leon Jimenes 300 Series robusto, from the Dominican Republic.

I think this is a fairly aged stick; it has the silver and black label, not the blue label. Dug it out of the depths of my humidor. I think my wife picked it up several years ago.

Flavor is full-bodied and earthy/woody, ... strong espresso undertones. A very mild and smooth smoke. Excellent burn, and draw, and plenty of smoke. Ash is very nice and tight, and burned straight. Aroma is very pleasant.

Excellent!

Paired it with my newest favorite cheap beer ... Big Flats 1901 -- Walgreen's brand, adjunct lager. I defy you to find a better beer at $2.99 a six pack. Better than Bud.

I have discovered my new favorite cigar: Perdomo Fresco Churchill

This one has it all: good construction, very easy draw, tremendous volume of smoke, good flavor - mild to medium, lights easily and holds a good ash, and an amazing value at around $3.50 a stick from my local store. It's a Dominican/Nicaraguan blend. If it was box-pressed, it would be perfect. I love finding good value cigars, and this one's an every day winner!

Enjoyed it with a bourbon & coke (Evan Williams).
