    Tight draw on Padilla's????

    Obsidians need to rest a minimum of 3 monts. 6 months or more is preferred. A quick search will yield many threads on this subject. :tu

    Retirement cigar help

    Your original call of the AVO is a very good choice. Nice Mild/medium profile and very nice presentation. A cab of Tat's or Cabiguan's would also be very nice, but maybe to strong for him. :2

    Container for beads?

    Cracked beads work just as well as whole ones, Viper has made several posts affirming this. There is no problem using a plastic container, but you will switch over to bags, pantyhose or a tube the first time you spill them. :dr

    Cozy's Blind Tasting

    #7 was on the menu last night. A Belicoso, approx 5 1/2 x 54, with a pointy taper. I like Beli's or torps with a more gentle taper, not the pointy ones.

    Wrapper Came Off??

    Anyone know what this cigar might be??

    Kind of hard to tell due to focus. It appears the tube is from a Cuban Upmann. But who knows what is inside. Take a picture of the actual stick with a closeup of the band. Use the macro feature on your camera. Here is a resource,
