3. First time having this one. After a little bit of a struggle getting her lit, it was a pretty good smoke. It might have needed a little more rest but it was still a good cigar. Thanks Conan

4. And 5. Smoked them both on the same night. GREAT cigars. The weather was perfect and they were a great addition to the wonderful weather.

Pretty sure the Tat was from the Wombat. Not sure about the Bolivar.
Thanks to both!

11. I forgot how much I liked these. Steve, you threw in some great smokes. This one was a billowing, smoke machine. Perfect draw, great flavor. Thank you very much.

I am heading out to Vegas on Sunday and I have the travel humidor packed up and ready to go. Pretty sure that a few on the list will meet their demise. I canโ€™t wait. Maybe the tables will be good to me. I hope to be saying โ€œWinner winner, chicken dinnerโ€ with a cigar in my mouth and chips in my hand. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ƒ

6. Was ashed sitting in the Hooterโ€™s Casino Bar watching GB beat KC. Taste was pretty good but it was a tight roll. Hard to get good smoke out of it. Still a good smoke. Thank you Delta.

7. Ahhhh, lucky number 7. This was a wonderful cigar. I enjoyed it while at the same bar as above but while watching the Nationals win the World Series. This was a fantastic smoke. A perfect roll. Great, billowing smoke clouds after every draw. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Thanks Delta....again.

sorry about the tight draw on the Cuaba...

the Fuente Rosado Sun Grown 8-5-8 is one of my all-time faves...they are rarely available...and I always buy a box when I find them...glad you enjoyed it, and smoked it after the Cuaba...lol

the RSG 858 are different from the Fuente Flor Fina 8-5-8 Sungrown, also a good smoke...

That was a 2008, if I remember which box I took it out of.

Disclaimer: poor attention to detail on my part.

In post #4, I said I had smoked the Bolivar. Well, somehow I was mistaken. It was actually the Punch, #14. The review of it is the same.

#4, for real this time, I smoked with one of my coworkers at the bar/ casino. It was very smooth and very enjoyable. I provided him with an H. Upmann half corona. A great relaxing night away from our long hours of work.

#9, met up with one of my fellow, Air Force retiree buddies and smoked it at a casino sports book. Also provided him with the same as above. (Both of them arenโ€™t big cigar smokers but loved the CC cigars). The Opus X was fantastic! The only low point was realizing that I left my best cutter there and it is now in the possession of someone else. ๐Ÿ˜ž

#19. On Sunday, I went to the Orleans to catch a movie after gambling a bit. I lit up the Isabella at the craps table. I was not expecting the sweet tip. The name of it was Pepperhead. I was expecting a peppery cigar. Nope. The first half was slightly tough to draw but then it opened up and burned/smoked perfectly. Gambling was semi-successful (about 6 hours worth but never made it to the movies).

#8. Somehow, surprising to me, my brother came to Vegas for his work on Monday. We met up and went to Fremont St. I smoked this one while watching a couple of bands play. They were good and the cigar was great. It even helped get us a nice open space to enjoy the band. For some reason people donโ€™t like cigar smoke mixing with their enjoyment of marijuana smoke. ๐Ÿคช

#1. After a rather long (11+ hours) workday, I needed to unwind. I almost forgot how much I enjoy an AF Añejo. I had horrible luck at the craps table but I was smoking this gem and it eased the pain.....a little.

So, a belated thanks to steve02 for #14, fiddler for #4, steve02 for #9, Palama for #19, fiddler for #8, and palama for #1.

This has been a great treat to smoke all of these fantastic cigars. I will continue on.

David

#10. OMG!!!! Last night in Vegas and I lit this up watching the Raiders win me a small bet. I have to say that this cigar is right near the top of the best cigars I have smoked. It was perfect. TONS of smoke and great flavor.

Steve02, thank you very much for a spectacular cigar!!

I certainly did.

#13. Smoked it yesterday, Veterans Day. I saved it just for yesterday. Being that it was the 30 year limited edition. 30 years ago, I started my journey in the Air Force (Sep 1989). I felt it was fitting to ash this one.

It was another wonderful smoke. Much longer smoke than what I have been smoking lately. I was enjoying the great weather and smoking a brisket at the same time. For me, AVO have been hit or miss. This was definitely a hit.

Another great cigar from Steve02.

(I think a future thank you, from me, is certainly needed)

Sounds like you had a great time in Vegas David. With a few inches of snow on the ground and feels-like temps near zero I just enjoyed a few smokes and a trip to a warm climate vicariously through you Herfing

The cold weather is starting to barrel down on the Florida Panhandle. Temps are dropping like a rock. We might be down to freezing overnight. Wtf!!!

Donโ€™t think she put anything in for the host (not expected) but pretty sure she took her free LP T52.
