    Carlos Torano Noventa "La Esperanza"

    Well, a couple of nights ago I decided to try a cigar I had recently seen in one of my local B&M's. I had heard a bit about it from a few people, so I decided to light it up and do a short review. Hope you like... Well, to start with the Noventa La Esperanza is a Nicaraguan puro, made to...

    Which Tampa Sweethearts bundle?

    Looking for an opinion from all you BOTL's and SOTL's out there. I'm in the market for a bundle of Tampa Sweethearts and want to hear some opinions on what people prefer. Are there different blends? I have had the 500 and the 50 maddies and loved them! I was thinking perhaps a bundle of 280's...

    Alec Bradley MAXX "The Culture"

    First off, to "Big D". Hope you're not thinking I am jumping all over your review. Far from it. Just a coincidence on my part. Actually, I had this review written last night, but didn't post it as I fell asleep on the couch late. As this is also a different size stick, perhaps this will be of...

    Tonight's offering...

    Bachelor this weekend, so I get to smoke in the house! Figured I would kick it up a notch and start the weekend off with a couple of old faves and then perhaps a couple of new sticks (at least to me). Smoking a Fuente Cuban belicoso a the moment and drinking a LaGunitas Hairy Eyeball Ale. A...

    Watcha smokin' right now?

    Me, I've been in a Rocky sort of mood today. Started out with a Sun Grown Junior with morning coffee. Then, for the Bears/Seahawks I light up an IT Cameroon Legend gorilla. That was an awesome 2-hr delight. Now for the Pats game, I'm on to a RP Edge Maduro torp. So sweet, so smooth and creamy...

    My first 4 cigar day... down the slope I go...

    Now, I know for many of you, this is no big news. For me though, it's a first, so what the hell. I figured I would share. Usually, I'm good for 1-2 on a weekend day or 2-3 at the local b&m every once in a while. But today was a good day and besides, I am a bachelor this week. My girl is in SF...

    The "12 Sticks of Christmas" contest

    I have a modest package of 12 smokes to the winner of this contest. A small way to bring some cheer after a very odd afternoon on CS. The Rules: open to all Gorillas 18 and over with a pulse and a positive RG. ;-) I am a fan of James Bond and will be watching the Spike TV marathon over the...

    This week's haul (w/some Fuente pr0n)

    Been scrapping around the local B&M's this week to get my greedy little hands on some Anejos. Well, finally struck gold the other day when my favorite shop got in Anejo 49's and 46's. The limit was 2 sticks per size, but I was able to get 4 of the 46ers with a little persistence. Then on...

    Back after a short break with some Fuente porn!

    Hey gorillas! Been away for a bit of a vacay and just back in the jungle now! Hello to all! Well one of my B&M's got in their Opus supply today and that lead me straight there after work. They had a 3 stick limit so I was only able to snag a couple FFOX and I thought I would share my joy with...

    Nado cigars?

    Anyone heard of "Nado" cigars? I was gifted two sticks today. Both are barber-pole style rolls. One natural/maduro wrapper and one rosado-lookin/maduro wrapper. They look and smell pretty good. Thing is I haven't seen them around here before. My buddy says they're "Nado's" but I have no way of...

    A neat piece of cigar history...

    I figured I would share a pretty cool tidbit that would go along the lines of a brush with celebrity... A little background, please bear with me... Well I was heartily reading the latest Cigar Magazine at the beginning of the month and came across Tom Zarzecki's article about his foray into...

    My first Fuente Porn

    Well, I got out of work early today and decided to visit a local B&M that I hadn't been to in about a month. Just had a hankerin' to go in. I really wanted just one stick for the night and to take in the sights and smells if you know what I mean. I wanted to get a nice box for my bedroom...

    Your ultimate victory cigar...

    Hey there! I'm looking to find opinions on what people would choose for their ultimate "Victory Cigar" if they could get any cigar they wanted for a really special event. Now, I want to limit responses to NC's, as what I am really looking for are people's opinions and tastes for cigars that at...
