Exclamation Re: Show your latest NC purchase IV



Part of my most recent shipment, I was lucky and managed to snag a box of Toro Le Bijous for cheap, 601 snakebites - love those, last box I had had cracking problems on the caps, but flavorful enough to risk and nothing some finesse and a razor blade can't handle next a box of L'Atlier Surrogates Crystal Ballers/Toros - heard lots of good things about this brand, excited to try!
And last, possibly my current NC favorite, the 601 La Bombas, this box is corona I believe but I have an additional 4 boxes of Toros on the way...that's just how damned good those things are...speaking of which;
@ Weelok, if you see this, have you had the La Bomba before? I know you like a strong flavorful smoke and these are probably the strongest AND most flavorful stogies I've ever had! If not let me know, I'd like to send out a couple for you to test drive (no need to reciprocate!)

Damn! That’s a haul Michael! I saw those 601 Bombs but didn’t know they really good.

Thanks James!! And yeah Chayse they are a killer smoke if you enjoy a *really* strong cigar. I have a couple busy weeks coming up but after the week of the 4th I could try to get one out to you if you want to shoot me your address.

Damn!!!!!! Nice pick ups!! I have had only one Bomba and it was an a newly released sample given to people at IPCPR. It was good and was also five years ago hah.

I like CAO cigars and this one is good as well as the new CAO Extreme. I think the only CAO cigar I donít like is the Gold.

Oh good so you have tried one before. I'm not sure if they've gotten better recently but the last box I had was remarkable. Still though, I'll see about getting one out to you sometime this summer, I think they definitely deserve a 2nd look!

I really regret having slept on 601 initially, haven't had a bad blend from them yet, from the Snakebite to the Maduro to La Bomba. Recently ordered a 5er of the Green/Oscuro so am looking forward to seeing if it lives up to its siblings!
