Camacho Pre Embargo

I bid on a single recently just for sh*ts and giggles. It is claimed that these cigars contain "a significant portion of authentic pre-embargo Cuban tobacco." Let's see if I can taste it.

First...

Re: Cabinet Arrangement?

This. Also, you could put sealed boxes closest to the humidifier. Or put some type of barrier (a sheet of cedar from a box of CCs) against the sides of the humidifier to channel the humidified air a...

Record Bond #3 (7" X 42)

Another old obscure brand resurrected by the folks at Cigar Page (?). I grabbed these at the same time as the Merchant's Queen. The sizes of the two brands are identical....

Re: Off-gassing

I used to flame purge quite a bit, but blowing your moist breath through a cigar, even though it can eliminate those chemical flavors, can make the cigar burn and draw poorly IMO.

A cool gadget...

Re: COH Custom Rolled?

I've tried 2 sizes.

The Dalias are full flavored almost to the point of being overpowering. They need a looooong nap in the humi. Like 3+ years.

The lanceros are fantastic. Really great...

Re: Lancero love

Enjoying another La Palina Illumination lancero. These mofos are STRONG. Very full flavored. Your wife won't wanna kiss you after you smoke one of these babies.

A nice cigar, though. Good draw,...

Re: Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion V Salomon

Smoking another one of these now. If it weren't for the lousy burn, it would be a top 10 smoke for me. Maybe I should try another size.

Smoking another Murcielago lancero.

Another fine smoke. These mofos have cracked the code for a tasty, well burning, maduro wrap cigar with a reasonable retail price.

Re: Murcielago toro

Apparently this line is no longer being sold on Cbid or CI, but for some reason they are still being sold on Cigar Page, which is obviously owned by CI. :sh

OK, so all of these toros I've smoked...

Smoking one of the last 2 cigars from the box that I last did a review from.

Re: LONSDALE love!

Plasencia Reserva Original corona

This cigar is 6.5" x 44, so I'm calling it a lonsdale.

The Reserva Original line has an interesting history. They used to be called Reserva Organica and were...

Re: Southern Draw help

I tried a fiver of the Rose of Sharon lanceros. I think they were lanceros. They were 6.5" X 40. Lancero or lonsdale? :hm

They were good, but not great. Pretty typical for the blend and nothing...

So I did a couple of reviews of the "Cuban Copy" sun grown lancero in this thread (stoopid name for a cigar line). The first bundle were so good that I ordered 2 more bundles after about the 3rd or...

Re: Lancero love

Giving the 'Cuban Copy' Habano Sun Grown from Cuban Crafters another shot. The first one I smoked didn't impress me, so I pulled a couple out and left them in the low RH humi for a bit.
