    My experience in Europe..... FWIW... walk around the historic part of downtown, like really close to the historic nucleus and you'll find the city's tobacconist.

    In other words, no.

    I thought so. I've been into a dozen or so "Tabacchi" before I found a place that had a single cabinet of reasonably decent cigars. Bought a half dozen Bolivars and called it a day. Weather here this week is perfect for smoking cigars so I just had to find something..

    while driving to the store to buy another god damn stroller because my wife apparently needs another stroller specifically for jogging. mind you, in the 8 years we've been together we haven't even considered going jogging once. :brick:

    That happened to me last night with a random Pshort, out of an otherwise quality box. Kinda' torn up this morning after Pshort and Sig1, paired with a shit ton of Appleton Estate Reserve Rum, neat and with various mixers throughout the night (mex coke, lime, soda water, rocks)...

    Smoked a Monte #2 Saturday night, then a Davidoff 2000 tubo after dinner last evening. I've slowed down smoking big time......

    Probably go with a H.Upmann petite corona tonight

    Smoking one of the new Italian REs, La Esception Selectos Finos. Not that impressed, but to be fair they've only been resting a few days. Seems like a lot of ligero and not much else. The band is pretty, though...

    Have you had any of the Davidoff Millennium series? Rich and powerful. Also like R & J corona gordas and Punch Punch. Can you see a trend... CG are my 2nd place after The # 2.

    At the recommendation of a B&M guy when I was on the road this week, bought a few San Lotano Oval. These are amazing cigars! I bought a robusto and a torpedo. Smoking the robusto now. Box pressed. Huge flavor, ton of complexity. You guys need to try one. Full flavor though, so if you ge knocked on your ass by nicotine, try an Ashton WL.
