Today I felt like something well aged to accompany the last of my OR Elijah Craig 12 yo bourbon.I grabbed a box of Trinidad Reyes from 07.I knew there were at least a half dozen sticks left in that box.What I found was sure enough a half dozen Reyes and a San Christobal de la Habana El Principe from a dress box about the same age.I must have thrown the last one in there when I disposed of the box.Anyway I fired it up with my Elijah Craig...........wow I had forgot just how good these were.Said goodbye to two old friends tonight.........they both will be greatly missed.
Well folks today is a first for me. A guy I work with went to Cuba for a bit of a vacation and brought back some cigars. He gave me one today. Its a Cohiba in robusto. I dont know which Cohiba it is but right now I dont care. Its my first Cuban cigar.
There was a time I preferred Cuban cigars too. Then I smoked pipes for 10 years and barely smoked any cigars. Since picking up cigars again I've discovered that there are a lot of really great Nicaraguan, Honduran and Dominican cigars out there at nice prices (if you shop the sales). I still have a stash of Cubans, but I save them for especially nice days.
