I'm not smoking it yet, but I got it in the mail. It comes in a box of one for about $11. I figured for eleven bucks it'll be a good smoke and I wanted the box. I could use a flip-top wooden box that holds one cigar. Surprise. It's not a flip-top.

Victor Sinclair Emperor. It is a box of one cigar. I didn't read the dimensions of this cigar beforehand. Is it gonna be quality or is gonna be quantity? I don't know. It's an intimidating ring gauge, that's for sure. I'm not going to smoke it yet, so it's probably premature to post it in this thread. I just look at the box and wait until I have a couple of hours to smoke the monster-sized novelty cigar inside. I hope is both quantity and quality, but one never knows. I'm not the biggest Victor Sinclair fan. I find them fine enough bur nothing to go out of my way for. Now I've got foot-plus box on my desk waiting to be explored.

Has anyone else been foolish enough to be tempted by this and put a flame to it? I will in good time, when I have a whole afternoon to dedicate to nothing else besides smoking a giant cigar while reading a good book while I sit in my garden.
A buddy of mine gave me a LaGloria Cubano Series R #7 7x58. I love the #5 but but the 7 was over a 1.5 hour cigar. Still great but you sure need to set aside enough time to enjoy..

Here's the band off my last Bahia Brazil. These were nice cigars. I'm gonna order another bundle.

Before you sharp-eyed snipers comment on the newspaper, I am reading yesterday's WSJ tonight. I know. I'm behind. My favorite pastime is smoking a handmade cigar while reading the WSJ like the capitalist fat cat plutocrat that I pretend to be.

Tonight I'm trying a relatively new smoke.. Camacho american barrel aged ..toro size.. It sounded kinda gimmicky at first.. The cigars are aged 5 years in charred oak bourbon barrels. It features mostly American tobaccos in the wrapper binder and filler.. Pencilvania broad leaf.. Kentucky filler.. Good stuff going on here! Not a heavy bourbon flavor.. But little hints of it throughout.. Lots of leather, earth, and oaky goodness. I would buy another one fo these.. For sure.. Cheers!
