Leccia Tobacco Black & White






Up at the Lit Cigar Lounge on Saturday night with my lovely bride. Hey, I've got a cigar for you to try the next time you're up there:
Leccia Tobacco White 650
Wrapper: Cameroon
Binder: Ecuadorian
Filler: Nic, Dom, Penn
Origin: Nicaragua

I wasn't planning on buying one of these, in fact I probably wouldn't have even noticed them on the shelf, but good ole Richard, one of Lit's finest cigar aficionados, recommended that I try it. His famous catch line to me is always: "You won't be disappointed."
Really?

Skipping ahead - Boy, he was right! The Leccia White turned out to be an excellent smoke! A little fuller bodied, but smooth as hell. Really enjoyed smoking this! Nice recommendation Richard! I'll definitely smoke one of these again.

OK, so there was one little issue with the cigar, but it didn't really bother me enough to say "WTF?". It started to unravel at the head. Yeah, that's kind of annoying - nothing like picking little strands of tobacco off your tongue and lips. Oh well, it really wasn't that big of a deal.
;)

Side Notes: 
I kind of found this out the hard way, but I've discovered that it's best to join a craps table that is full, rather than the one with just a few people. Why? Basically, you're following the winners. More often than not I've won money at a full table. Weird, eh?

Hey Josh, where were you on Saturday night?

Rain City Cigar - Alec Bradley Event


Friday, May 17 2013 3-6 PM
@
RAIN CITY CIGAR
IN BEAUTIFUL DOWNTOWN GEORGETOWN

FEATURING
Alec Bradley
For our next event we will be featuring Alec Bradley cigars 
 and introducing the new Alec Bradley NICA PURO. 


This cigar was to be released last year after the IPCPR show but was held back until now. Whatever the reason for the delay, it was worth waiting for. As the name implies this cigar is a Nicaraguan Puro, a first for Alec Bradley. If you're looking for a good, spicy cigar, check this one out.

The cigar starts off with a good Nicaraguan kick then puts on a flavor show with hints of leather, cocoa, roasted nuts and a bit of nutmeg. The construction, burn and draw are all rated as excellent. Alec Bradley cigars are all very popular and have a devoted following. This new offering looks like it will enjoy the same success!
 
Mr. Don Hanes represents Alec Bradley and will be here for this event to introduce you to the new Nica Puro and discuss all things Alec Bradley. Whether you are buying sticks or boxes, Don will have a deal for you.

Buy-4-get-1-FREE!
Buy any 20 Alec Bradley cigars, get 5 FREE
PLUS a Hendrix 3 flame torch lighter.

RAFFLE - RAFFLE - RAFFLE
Embroidered Caps, LTD Edition Cutters, a Burner Lighter and an Ashtray.


Rain City Cigar Event Day Discounts Will Be In Effect On All Alec Bradley Products
  • 5% OFF EACH CIGAR
  • 10% OFF FIVE OR MORE
  • 15% OFF FULL OR MIXED BOXES
Boxes can be full or mixed boxes of 20 cigar or more

We hope that you and your friends will join us for this event at Rain City Cigar.

The Rain City Cigar "25 Foot Cigar Lounge" will be open 
so that you can enjoy your cigars in comfort. 

Come early for best selection!

Sunny and HOT in Seattle?

Can you remember the last time we had temperatures in the mid 80's the first week of May? Holy crap, it's nice! The Cinco de Mayo festivities on Sunday night in downtown Kirkland were unreal! Milagro Cantina and the old Olive You nightclub were probably the loudest and most packed, but Mi Mexico and Cactus restaurants were a pretty close second. I never made it over to the other side where the Irish Rover and 21 Central are, but I'm sure they were rocking as well. Olive You was really the place to be though - what a party over there!

Kirkland's a happening place when the sun comes out!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You know I smoke quite a few cigars every week and I know for a fact that I could smoke a helluva lot more, but, I try to behave and only smoke on the weekends. Yes, it's probably for the best, plus my lovely wife won't disown me for spending too much on cigars. I'm sure you all can relate to that...

Anyway, I recently picked up a box of one of my favorite cigar brands:  Oliva Serie GChurchill 

Honestly, I could smoke these any time of day, probably my favorite all-around cigar, just about perfect in every category. In fact, if I could only smoke one brand of cigars for the rest of my life, I'd be perfectly happy with this one. That kind of tells you how much I like 'em!


Now, of course I'm not going to limit myself to just this brand of cigars, I do indeed love trying new stuff,  but I'll always come back to my Oliva Serie G - they are the benchmark of how I rate all cigars...

Do you have a benchmark cigar?

Side notes:
Found out the other day that the Seattle Cigar Expo might not happen this year (again). One of their primary sponsors has dropped out. Ouch...Stay tuned, we'll know for sure in about a week or so...
