Finally got a new humidor that I can use to transport today’s selections out to the patio.     Today’s choice 

Ramon Allones Specially Selected  

I'm surprised someone hasn't posted about lighting up the bong tonight. This would be the day for it.   Pardon me if the bong is not still in fashion. I haven't kept up with these things.

Some of my friends are huge VSG fans, I actually don't particularly enjoy them. This particular Wizard was one of the better ones I've had though. I only occasionally buy them because the local indian smokeshop sells them at a good price. But frankly, most of the enjoyable domestic cigars are too expensive for what they are.

VSGs are probably my favorite cigar, definitely up there with the Opus X and upper-end Fuentes.

Different strokes for people with bad taste :).

Jokes, jokes, but I do prefer Rocky Patel 90s and 92s, Camacho Triple Maduro, Padron Anniversary, Opus X, etc. I'd take any of those and many others over a VSG without hesitation. I just think VSGs are a boring smoke (last two I had were Wizards).

edit: Really? Man, I used to love Dunhill 965 when I used to smoke pipes.

AFAIK, Dunhill-branded pipe tobacco is still manufactured & sold. Certain lines in certain packages have been discontinued (I believe bulk 965 was at some point), and the factories have changed a few times, but I'm pretty sure Dunhill is still on the shelves.

I haven't been able to get it in Texas. I've looked at all the tobaccinists in the major cities. I used to be able to even get it in smaller towns quite easily, but not anymore, so I presume the rumor is true. The same is apparently true in Southern California. Not a single tin.

Last night: A 1998 Trinidad Fundadore (I haven't had a 98 Fundie in a while, and they are fucking good), and a custom rolled cuban (pretty good at best).

Tonight: Going to a BBQ. If it's not too hot to enjoy a cigar, I'll have a 1992 Punch Corona cabinet selection. Otherwise a 2001 Partagas Seleccion Privada. Knowing me, I'll end up smoking both.

JP#s, I dunno if you read this thread, but you going to the SoCal Herf this weekend?

Got back from SoCal 10 yesterday. Tried a couple of exceptional cigars while I was down there, and then some pretty good stuff. Highlights:

60's Don Alfredo petit corona

Quintero Churchill (non-cello)

a pre-embargo clear-Havana perfecto (turned out good, unlike most clear-havanas)

80s Partagas 898 unvarnished (missed a group buy on these, which I now regret)

1998 Punch Churchill which also turned out to be surprisingly good
