We are off this afternoon to the lovely metropolis of Indio, CA to attend the final, official, once and for all, okee dokee, we really mean it, Court ordered adoption of our eldest son and wife's third child.
This has been over a 2 year ordeal, them adopting 3 siblings from crack addicted...
Better late than never. For the month of November I chose to review a JML 1902 Petit Torpedo. I had never heard of this cigar until I received it from MarkinCA for the November selection. Information was hard to come by on the cigar as the La Tradicion Cubana Inc. website is currently...
This month I decided to review the Taboo Dominican Maduro that I received from MarkinCA for October. I am a big fan of the Taboo Twist so I was eager to see what the other cigars in the lineup are all about. For a maduro cigar, I thought the wrapper was lighter in color than I'm used to. It...
This month Reggie sent me:
Perdomo Corojo Robusto
Nub Connecticut 354
Los Blancos Criollo Robusto
and a Partagas Serie D #4
I smoked the DPG Blue first. It opens with spicy cedary flavors. very stong flavors, yet balanced and smooth. Very enjoyable. More peppery in the middle, yet...
Its been a pretty rough month for me. As some of you know, I lost my job this past Tuesday. However, a positive I have had a chance to sit back and enjoy some very nice cigars. One of the best I have tried this month is from MarkinCA, a Camacho Petit Corona. I fired up this stick this...
Just now getting around to post this review for August. I decided to review the La Flor Dominicana Ligero from the awesome selection from MarkinCA.
Pre-light: The construction of the cigar was rather rugged. There where quite a few veins throughout and the color was a little different from...
This month was a very busy month for this gorilla. I found it difficult to find time to enjoy a lot of cigars, but I have really enjoyed the few I have had. One in particular was gifted to me by MarkinCA. This wonderful little smoke was the Famous Nicaraguan 3000 robusto. I have heard a lot...
This months cigars are:

Davidoff Millennium Robusto Tubo
J. Fuego Natural Robusto

From the beginning I got mostly cedar flavors with some sweetness as well. The draw was a little...
This month MarkinCA sent me a very nice selection of Maduro cigars along with a very nice surprise of coffee. Immediately upon receiving the cigars for May, I decided to smoke a HDM Excalibur. I paired this cigar with a fresh ground cup of Sumatra coffee that Mark sent as well. My impressions...

Fonseca Cubano Limitada
Tatuaje Series P
Joya De Nicaragua Series C
Puros Indios Viejo
Partagas Cifuentes Winter Blend
Yesterday, I went to the racetrack and I brought along the Partagas Cifuentes Winter Blend.
For my second review this month, I chose the CAO Criollo. I will include some pictures below as well. I have had one of these before, but I didn't really pay much attention to it. I remembered it was a decent cigar, nothing special but nothing bad either. This time wouldn't prove much...
Here are the smokes Reggie sent me this month (thanks again!):
I started with the Cabaiguan.
It starts off very woody, with some pepper notes and a great draw. The one thing I notice is there is no bite. Usually I don't like full strength cigars because of the "bite" but this cigar had strong...
This month for my first review I chose to go with a Rocky Patel OSG that was so generously given to me by MarkinCA. Let me just say that I have been somewhat biased against Patel and I don't really know why. I guess I am a little skeptical of his blends because he appears to have so many and...
This month for my review I choose a Taboo Exotic Maduro that I was gifted by MarkinCA. I had been curious about this cigar before and was eager to give it a try. The only other Taboo I have tried is the Twist, which has become one of my favorite cigars.
The cigar looked...
Searched but did not find anything on this.
Could we set up a Troop Adoption Program? The guys that are in contact with the troops already could hook up a CS member that wants to adopt with a soldier that wants to be adopted.
It would be a cigar version of a pen pal. Emails/photos could be...

This is my second review for Feb. 2008.
Today I chose to smoke a Mayorga "robusto torpedo" at least that is how I would describe it. I don't know much about these cigars, but the wrapper immediately caught my eye.
The wrapper was a beautiful golden brown color that looked good enough to...
