I know, I know, where's my post for this week? Well, I've been kind of lazy and I've only been smoking Oliva's, but that should change this weekend, I'm planning on picking up a few new sticks to review.
In the meantime, a friend of mind has inadvertently reviewed a couple of cigars and I thought his comments warranted posting on the Front Page.
Last weekend I went to the Snoqualmie Casino and smoked a couple of cigars. First one was the La Gloria Cubana with the 2 tone wrapper. I didn't like the first half of the cigar with the lighter wrapper, once it burned down to the other, it was a lot better smoke. Had a good draw, but I had to relight it a couple of times.
The second one I had was the Macanudo Vintage 1968. It was another one of the free ones I got from the Smoke Easy. I like Macanudo but the draw on this was very tight. Had good flavor but the draw kind of ruined it. I have another one of these in my box that my dad gave me from his stash from the Smoke Easy. I was feeling it and seems like it'll be a tight smoke as well. I should find a way to loosen it up a bit.
My brother was with me when we were there at the casino. He got a El Triunfador from Tatuaje. I tried it, maybe took 3 puffs off it, and loved it. I ended up ordering a box from CI. So they should be here sometime next week.
That's all I got for now.
Nice job Chris!
BTW, I'm planning on heading up to the Lit Lounge on Saturday night - maybe we'll catch you up there? I'll be with my lovely wife, so I'll be easy to spot. :)
I was pretty surprised to see that both I-1100 and I -1105 were defeated. I think that it was bad timing for Costco to have their initiative on the ballot the same time as I-1105. Oh well, wait a couple of years and try again... Please!
