    Taboo Dominican Maduro

    I believe so, Rob. I looked for other threads but could find any.

    Taboo Limited Reserve Connecticut Torpedo

    I got some last week and just fired one up. What a pleasant early morning smoke (with a nice cup of joe). I got some nuttiness in with the wood flavors, too.

    As long as you're placing an order, you might as well pick up some twists. They are fantastic.

    Taboo Dominican Maduro

    Rob was kind enough to throw a Taboo Dominican Maduro into the humidor deal he advertised here a week or so ago. I was going to let it rest for a bit, but I just could resist. Size: 5x50 Wrapper: Ecuadorian Maduro Binder: Dominican Filler: Dominican Appearance: milk chocolaty wrapper...

    Leathery cigar suggestion?

    I agree with the Gurkha recommendation. Also, you could try a Flor Dominicana chisel tip.

    taboo limited reserve fig

    I'm smoking an HSG right now, and I think this is one of my favorite cigars. It has level of sweetness that is just perfect.

    taboo limited reserve fig

    I had a LR Maduro Figuarado this morning. Prelight draw--chocolate, fig flavor Construction-very veiny, solid, desnse Burn-even throughout Flavor-a nice woody/cedar with a nutty finish. Some nice "tang." A nice sweetness picked up abou ¼ of the way through, and I got a bit of espresso...

    Saturday Mornings

    Sitting on my balcony, listening to the radio, looking over the city, smoking a Taboo Twist, and sipping on a hot cup of coffee. Could it get any better? How are you spending your Saturday morning?

    Cigar shop in Fairfax?

    I work down the street from Shelly's and stop by from time to time. It's a decent place. I hadn't ever heard of the place in crystal city. Does anyone know if it's in the underground mall?

    Tasting of cigars

    Agreed. I just read through that thread, and it's fantastic. OP: It might help you taste the subtle nuances of cigars if you "sip" rather than puff. By that I mean that you take smaller, slower draws and let them really flow across your tongue.

    B&M Getting Angry AT YOU?

    This is all too common. There was a thread recently about a salesperson who got angry (or was possibly just indifferent) to a BOTL pointing out beetles.
