Re: What Cigar or Pipe Are You Smoking?

Crowned Heads Luminosa 6 months in the humidor.
The cold draw is like orange juice. Interesting. Good flavors through the first third of the cigar but starts to lose its way. 1/2 through I had some burn issues. Nice cigar but not a head-turner. = B

Montecristo #2 from a buddy in Europe. In the humidor about 6 months. Just so smooth but pungent at the same time. Beautifully constructed - very fine ash and tons or mocha and pepper. Nice hot evening on the porch listening to some old Ray Lamontagne.
