WK and good cigars. Man, I miss him.
As a lurker, I have read Whalehead King's old machine made cigar posts. Good stuff.

What a lucky day! I found another 10 pack box of Texas rolled Travis Club Straights I bought a few years ago. They are in perfect smoking shape and are almost the perfect machine rolled, all tobacco cigar.

Smokin' one of the cigars @Ruffinogold gave me. Can't remember which one it is; it's not the Judges Cave, but the other one. Anyway, enjoying it!

Unless they get left in the rain, or, they are thrown overboard on a canoe trip, or you drop a box in a vat of acid, it is almost impossible to ruin a good Finck smoke.

Here's what came in my mail today:

Interior view:

I haven't tried these since the original factory closed. I was hoping for a pigtail. For the first one that I have opened, and am smoking now, there was no pigtail and no shoe peg hole. Minus two points.

I clipped the first cigar to get a draw but these MW Lanceros are rolled tiny enough on their pointy head that they resemble the original cigars' ends and, because the end is so pointy, these can be bit in authentic "Conestoga Style" instead of using some fancy cigar cutter. I used a cutter. It only occurred to me afterward that these ends are meant to be bitten off and spit out like in an old movie.

As I smoke my clipped MW, one tag of loose wrapper keeps dangling off the end. I don't bother to clip it. It's no bother at all. Maybe these new Marsh Wheelings really are pigtail cigars after all. I'll have to see how the others perform.

How's the flavor? As good as the original? This is pure Marsh Wheeling. Plus ten points.

These cigars are firmly rolled but their bodies have some bounce and give to them. There is nothing cheaply made about them. They are 100% natural leaf. No HTL, not that there is anything wrong with HTL. The flavor is old-school stogie, what you should expect from a Marsh Wheeling. No disappointment. The Lanceros are 7" x 34g. Now made in the Dominican Republic, of all places.

I hadn't yet sampled one of these cigars when the mail lady delivered the box, but I thanked her anyway because I suspected these would be good. I was looking forward to it. They're good cigars. I'm going to thank her again the next time I see her. I'm always thanking her. Who doesn't like to get mail?

I'm smoking my second Marsh Wheeling Lancero. This time I bit off the the end and spit it out like a thug. It felt good.

I really like the 7" length of these slender cigars. They are a natural fit to my hand and the roll is just right, not to tight and not too loose. They're comfortable. I haven't a bad cigar out of this box yet!

There is no pigtail facsimile dangling off the draw hole on this cigar, alas. It's the pigtails that gave the old Marsh Wheeling their winning personality. No demerits, though. If Cigar Numbers 3- 50 are as good as Numbers 1 & 2, I'm going to become a Marsh Wheeling man.

Well, those do look tasty, CB! Did they come from Famous? Who's making them nowadays?
