What’re you enjoying right now? For me it’s a davidoff at the springs.

I've never even had a puff of a dog log. Pretty much the only thing I've never tried.

Just about anything by Arturo Fuente is good by me, a Brickhouse being at the top. I also enjoy one called an El Rey Del Mundo but I dont come across them very often.... hmm I think I may have to make a trip to Specs today

Off to the Springs for a Cigar, coffee, and take a spin in the boat! -- gotta drain the rain water! :)
We have a place on the springs but we’re out on the water. Never had an opus but hear they’re amazing. What kinda boat are you in?

I've been enjoying the Camacho's lately. I just had one from my local cigar shop here and it was a 2 pack of Camacho's no Plastic wrapper and I can not find them online either. But they were dern good. Oliva O's is another one I like.

I typically indulge once a week on Fridays with a cocktail. Next up is one out of a gift box..

PSA: Be careful what you are smoking. Double check the authenticity of that 5 pack.
Fakes are getting very good, especially the ones coming out of Chyyna.

The certificate and hologram should go fully over the top of the tubos pack, serial number should be visible.

Bummer. It was a gift (from out of the Country) and appears to be counterfeit based on the web site you provided.

Really unfortunate as the gift giver paid quite a bit of money for it.

I opened it and the cigar doesn’t look too bad however, the wrapper does appear to be made of more than a single leaf which I think is suspect as well..

Tonight’s choice is one of my go to favorites. My Father the judge by Garcia & Garcia. I usually go with 5x60.

We've all smoked fakes at one point or another, just no one wants to admit to it.

Light one up take a few puffs and see how it burns, it won't be a Cohiba, but at least you're not letting that stick go to waste.
You can also, open one up and see what's it rolled with. I've seen some pictures with leaf scraps that also included newspaper as filler.

Not a bad stick!

We wintered in the 400's front from 2006 until they said no more "Space Shade/covers! - 2018/19?
We averaged 2-3 cigars a day. Dog rockets to the most expensive! Cubans galore! -- Real Ones! :D

Well, change of plans for this Friday. I’m sitting on the porch with my wife at the Havasu house smoking one of the cigars my Daughter’s significant other bought me at the cigar bar last time they were here. Watching the sun set. Doesn’t get much better..

Padron 64 is top notch no doubt. Never tried the Ashton.

Didn’t bring any gars out to the vacation joint so went to the local cigar shop and bought a Padron serie 1926 No. 9. Rated as a top pick. Good cigar, but not better than my tried and trusted Cuban Monte Cristos.

Paid $44, but what’s the price for an hour of pleasure.😀
