This is premature, as I'm not currently smoking either of these.

My wife stayed home sick today and was present for my package delivery.

She was kind enough to send a picture to let me know my box had arrived, and also that I'm in the doghouse for spending money on one hundred smokes.

I told her it was more cost effective than buying a MMC at a gas station every time I had a hankering. Didn't help the situation.

Reviews as soon as I get home from work, since I'm not getting kissed tonight anyways.

Tonight, I smoked a total of 5 MMC's; two hatchetfish and two Oliva Viejo Mundo for a review, this review in fact, and one more Oliva because I liked the first two so much.

Now, as promised, the cigarillo matchup of the decade. The premium scraps giant versus the underdog Famous smokes couldn't sell at 50c a stick. Who will win?



For those who don't want to watch me drone on, here's a written summary:

Hatchetfish smelled like cigar tobacco. Loose fill, ratty foot.

Cold draw tasted like the tobacco they used wasn't quite finished fermenting. Pretty rough.
Lit it up and treated myself to a harsh, thin, tongue scorching smoke. I enjoyed it.
Needs another 3 years to mellow and get good.
Smoked it to the nub. Right at the end I got a few puffs with the unmistakable taste of rotten tobacco leaf. Trust me, I know that taste intimately.

Oliva Viejo Mundo:
Good Lors, so smooth.
Smells and cold draws like a fine Dominican cigar. Firm to the touch.
Thick, creamy smoke. Wife even loved the room note. Very tasty all the way to the nub. I only stopped smoking because my fingers were getting hot and I adamantly refuse to use a roach clip.

Hatchetfish gets 2 dancing bananas, and bonus points for being $10

Oliva gets 4 dancing bananas. I should have bought a box of the petite Coronas to go with this one

Enjoyed a Principe Masters Chocolate today. Every time I smoke one of these I’m a happy guy.
