I had a CAO Italia Box Press (new size) last night at the event at Satin Jack's, i thought it smoked better that any other size i have had before, i have no rational reason behind it maybe just because it was new.
Today while mowing I had a El Rey Del Mundo Cafe Au Lait (4.5x35 Colorado Claro). I needed quick smoke, and I have a good selection of singles from some sales here on CP, and I as rifled through them the El Rey Del Mundo caught my eye. I am a noob to cigars, and this was my first from Del Mundo.
It was good. It burned nice, and the ash held in for an inch or so before being bounced off. I was puffing pretty good (I was push mowing) and I'm sure I inhaled some smoke (something I don't do normally). I wasn't able to capture the nuances of it, but it wasn't harsh, and it held up pretty well to my chomping. It wasn't hot even down on the last inch...though that could've been my slobber cooling it off
All in all, I will probably buy more of these for quick smokes (at a buck a stick...why not)
I had a Bolivar DC ER '07 that was given to me by a great BOTL on here and it was damn tasty. Typical Bolivar flavors, but a little richer. It was also a little bit more powerful than I expected it to be.
Arganese CL3 Corojo Robusto. This stick blew me away right from the start,creamy with spice spot on burn although the draw was a little tight. Very much reminded me of good aged cuban tobacco the smell of this cigar while lit was intoxicating. Was gifted this cigar from a close friend that is running a new shop in Providence have to make my way down there soon.
