So here's another update.
Last time I checked in, the Air Force was requiring me to take the ASVAB before they approved my financial waivers for MEPS. No biggie, I figured as long as I scored somewhere near my sample score they would approve me.
I took the test yesterday, got done fairly...
So, any big scores from the IPCPR this weekend?
I didn't make it there myself (Calgary being quite a long distance from New Orleans, natch), but my local B&M tobacconist went. I dropped in to the shop today, and came out with a sample 1oz pouch of the Kentucky Select Organic pipe...
It's weird reviewing a cigar that was changed not so long ago. In a perfect world there would be two separate entries, one for the DPG and one for...

So I get home late tonight and make my usual obsessive check of Cbid and see a 25 box of Padilla 1932 Rubostos at $88.
Hmmm ... I LOVE this cigar. Quick check of CHIMP and see a historic low price of $124, avg $160
What the heck, I don't need them ... but I HAVE to bid. Put in an auto bid...
This is another well made cigar from the Perdomo crew that has a great look to it and smokes as well as it looks. Great taste and well worth the mo...

...with our El Salvador Santa Rita Natural. I was fortunate to score this coffee directly from the owners of the farm. Getting it is one thing. Roasting it and scoring a 92...priceless.
Needless to say, the farm owners were thrilled to hear last nights announcement. So are we.
Ok, well maybe it hasnt been that long, but long enough. Minus a lil stay in the hospital, a few long days in a few places that left bad memories --- I made my way down the virtual path to CL again. :)
I was glad to see a group of familiar faces... and some new ones. That's always good...
So I was in Vegas with some old friends this weekend and decided to make the mandatory trip to Casa Fuente for some sticks and the excellent house mojito. Here's what I had left when I headed home last night. The guy there hooked me up with the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation's Toast Across...
I took a shot in the gut today. I'm still stumbling around from the hit I took from Mike today. Watch out boys, (Kenny, Patrick, Scottie), Mike means bidness.
See post #49
Mike hit me with
06 Punch Punch
07 Trini Reyes...
The wife called on her way back from Florida and was passing J-R in NC. Asked if I wanted anything so I gave her some suggestions. This is what she brings me. I asked for the Davinci's. Good thing I set up a coolidor.
Gonna have a contest for the $10 gift card that came in the travel humi. Look...
In the latest Tasting Panel #9 we had two of the three lines of the Alec Bradley cigar line score a Very Good rating of at least 7.0
Alec Bradley Trilogy Exotic Maduro Torpedo
Blind #126 Alec Bradley Maxx The Fix
As most know it is very hard to score this high on panel...
We got word last night of the vertical brand tasting of our RP Decade. Our lowest score was 91 and our highest score (a record-tying high score) was 95!
This only further reassures your reviews and thoughts on the Decade.
Here's the breakdown folks:
Rocky Patel Decade
Torpedo - 95...
All because of Denny and I chatting about how damn good these are!
Hell.... I paid $5.90 a stick in NC a few weeks back.....
Gotta love a site that brings that down to $2.60 a stick!!! ($2.90 if you include the shipping)
AND THEY ARE...
I sent CM one of the Fonseca Reserva Especials to try, along with a few Caribbean relatives (cigars are herd animals, they like to travel in packs). In a devastating retaliatory strike a CM missile landed smack in the middle of the Metal household yesterday:
The smokes are Cohiba Esplendido...
Mike handled a nice split. Even though he had problems along the way he stuck
with it and delivered the goods. Of course the BOTL that he is the extras were
