Re: Lancero love

Revisiting the Cuban Crafters Medina 1959 lancero tonight.

This one was much better than the first one I tried. I would imagine that it's because of the nekkid humidor time. I really need to...

Murcielago toro

The Murcielago line has quite a history. I remember that the first generation were made by Pepin. I remember buying a few at a B&M. They were good smokes. After the first generation, they were made...
