I can’t figure out how to post pics if anyone can help out. I keep getting an error on the sizing.
I can never figure it out either. I think I did a few times a while back but then couldn't remember how I did it. So I just include them as an attachment off of my Mac.

Man O' War Ruination
Not sure why I had this cigar. With a name like Ruination, I figured it was an homage to one of the world's shittiest beers. Nope. Great cigar. It is awesome when a cigar has a perfect burn and draw. Nice medium/full stick. = A
