    Great idea, Paul. All the folks who regularly share in this thread can expect me to bring a cuban cigar for them at EXP35. Someone else can bring the Scotch. We’ll be needing a few bottles.

    That reminds me, I got an email earlier about Labor Day sales at my regular online smokeshop. I need to refill the humidor!

    Tonight will probably be my usual Quintero y Hermanos Brevas. Or, maybe I'll celebrate the whole Friday thing with a RyJ Coronation en Tubo. I need to get some more Epicure No 1 en Tubos. (I just can't afford big smokes any more)


    Thanks for the reminder, though! Off I go to take care of myself!

    Long work trips generally give me the chance to sample many new (to me) brands and blends in close proximity to my favorite cigars. This trip has been no exception.

    Last time I was in the States, I scoured the better shops looking for Nicaraguan and Dominican smokes from Cigar Aficionados’ Top 25 list. Yesterday’s stogie was this La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel which ranked 13th best in 2018. It was good but not something I’ll buy again.

    Today I returned to one of my persistent favorites, the Cohiba Esplendidos. I have yet to smoke one of these without loving it. It didn’t hurt that I got to enjoy it by the pool.

    Hans that LFD Double Ligero is one I smoke regularly but I go for the 8.5x60 Digger. I can get several hours off one if I am puffing lightly watching a movie and they burn so nicely. Haven’t tried that Chisel to compare but I know other brands vary a lot from different sizes and construction.

    That Cohiba though.......that’s a goodie.

    I'm contractually not allowed to smoke while employed at my current job. Six years to go for 25 years.

    One of these days, I’ll break open the humidor. For now, I’m enjoying a grape soda.

    In fairness, I did bring a bottle of Maker's Mark last time around. Here's a pic of me and all my friends enjoying it at the HGI hang.

    That is so sad. I promise to drink with you and anyone else who wants to tip one this year. My room key will be in my pocket, please make sure I end up there.

    Well, on the plus side, there were no arguments amongst the lobby crew that year, and at least one hookup.

    So tonight I am enjoying a My Father cigar and it got me thinking, do you all like a box pressed stick? This one is and I have had many others that were and almost universally I like them. I like the way it feels in hand and when you puff on it. Any of you have a preference or have you even tried one?

    Usually box-pressed smokes are a better quality smoke, usually rolled by a more experienced roller. So, they usually smoke nicely. Usually nice and even draw, even burn... I love 'em, when i can afford them! LOL

    I used to love the Padrõn Anniversarios that came box pressed... But, they are now priced beyond my normal budget. I've had a bunch of different brands and sizes and haven't found one yet I've not liked.
