No pictures taken but yesterday I enjoyed:
CLE Chele. Smooth and creamy Connecticut that went well with a lager in the heat of the day.
Boli PC. Classic.
Herrera Esteli maduro lonsdale. Perfect nightcap, butterscotch and chocolate.

Aganorsa Leaf Supreme Leaf Robusto - okay so, this is the 2nd specimen I've smoked and I have to regretfully admit that they are not smoking well. I saw some others review it similarly and I just didn't want to believe them, but I should have.
Now that isn't to say that there isn't promise, I do pick up some interesting notes, but overall it's an extremely harsh smoke. I've had these resting for about a month and a half now and I find that most smokes are at the very least, palatable by that point - but not these.
I think I'll stash these at the bottom of one of my coolidors and try to forget about them for a long while, hoping they'll improve with some age.

That's too bad. Aganorsa usually puts out solid smokes. Thanks for the update.

I know, I'm a huge Aganorsa fan, which was why I decided to order a box anyway. I agree it's totally out of step for them, which is why I'm wondering if maybe the leaves are just really young? I'll post an update when I revisit in 6-12 months, hoping they'll smoke better with some time.

This morning I went with..



Tatuaje Cabaiguan Corona - saw this one recommended here and decided to pick up a 5er, very nice, flavorful medium bodied cigar! Excellent breakfast/coffee cigar

Moving right along...



Dunbarton Mi Querida Robusto - decided to revisit these and I'm glad I did. Superb cigar, a gritty spiciness that is reminiscent of the Tabernacle, however not as sweet as the Tabernacle. I pick up a lot of damp earth and mineral notes in this cigar, very unique and interesting to smoke. Recommended!

I've smoked a couple of those, Michael, thought they were interesting and enjoyable as well.
