You won't regret it. If you can get your hands on a Dirty Rat or a Feral Flying Pig, do it even if you pay close to $20 per stick. Every cigar smoker must try a DR and FFP.
DE's marketing is great. He mingles with the regular folk which makes him popular. He doesn't really need to, since the Liga is so damn good.
Tonight, a PCR aka Crack Stick

In my opinion it's a serious cigar. I don't like anything that comes out of DE except for the Liga line. They are fantastic.

I want to try a Liga and a MUWAT, just hate paying so much for a single stick. One of the cigars my sister got me for Christmas was a DE Tabak Especial. I'm not normally a big fan of flavored cigars but I would gladly smoke another one of those.

The 1926 might be too strong for most. Never smoke this on an empty stomach cause you can either pass out or get really sick for the novice smoker.

no wonder they hit me hard sometimes! hahaha

they make me feel sooooooo relaxed.

LOL! I must admit, these are fantastic smokes!
BTW, my humidor is WAY too big to mail. I'd have to use FedEx Freight!

Tonight's smoke was a mind blowing experience! Bolivar Exclusivo UAE

The first time I had one, I was sitting in my mate's beach house, overlooking a sunset on a quiet Karachi Beach after a long day of hand fishing in a local's 15ft wooden boat (which we hired for $40 for the day including the captain!).
It was surreal, peaceful and I can't think of a better or more perfect setting. It was a warm evening, there was a coal BBQ going cooking our day's catch, a local nomadic man showing off his brilliant vocal skills and the sound of crashing waves in the distance. It was one of those feelings where nothing outside your 5 senses existed. The world had switched off, leaving behind you, your mates and a twinkle in your eye as you gazed upon this magnificent cigar

Man, I gotta get back there....

Do seals just go bad? I believe I have the Yukon from Cigar International, it is 2 years old, and I got it in their blue chip combo when they had it.

Wife and I are out tonight. My enjoyment for the evening!


Edit: my thoughts after finishing: VERY light. Low smoke... Kinda boring. Anyway. Just fine when I'm out with the woman because she doesn't like a lot of smoke in her face or me to smell like cigar too much.

You can't go wrong with a Fuente! Have you had the WOAM? That's great with a strong coffee.

Today's smoke was a Party Short while doing some metal polishing on the Cozzie

I like the Arturo Fuentes, the magnum line is pretty good. You're right it is not a strong smoke but IMO I wouldn't label it as boring.

Yeah I may have written it off a little prematurely. I will snag another sometime and give it another go. I know Fuentes' are a great line and I have had one before that was great so this could've been just a bad stick. Seemed to get really tight and hard to get a good drag out of it. It's possible the bar's humidor was not storing the cigars in proper conditions.

A little brash, I know, I just wish it would've been a better experience. I will get another and give it another go! Haha, why the hell not!

Well I snagged a other Fuente. This time a special edition for the drive between Dallas and Houston. That was an excellent smoke.
