The Vudu is a surprisingly good Famous house brand.

At the other extreme, the Flor de Todo is a true dog rocket--you have been warned. :-)

Thanks all and I smoked one last night and it's a pepper bomb which I equate to strong ligers and since I slept like crap as I was too amped up, I think I can attest to it being full of Vitamin N however no nicotine hang over this morning so that is a huge plus.

This is everything I hoped in that it's a suped up Jalepeno. I had to do a few re-lights but that does not bother me and I attribute that to the rather thick wrapper on the cigar which is probably the reason it's a pepper bomb. All I can say is I enjoyed it a lot but I will remember the Vitamin N potency next time.

Got me a 10er of A. Flores Gran Reserva by PDR, I love these smokes and usually smoke the half corona's but oldforge posted a deal from Cigar Page for these double magnum 6x60 for $2 a stick, a little out of my size liking but I could not pass up the price...10 smokes $19.55 shipped! Ordered on Tuesday arrived today with free shipping! Maybe my new place for smokes as they have some great prices!

Nice, Mike! I'm not a huge fan of 6x60 either but those A. Flores are tasty in that size.
