601 Green Habano Oscuro - 12/02/2012

Posted: Sunday, December 2, 2012
601 Green Habano Oscuro, trabuca 6.25x58. Mild off the light, slight pepper and spice for a bit, then mellowing (but still bold) into a flavorful sweet spiciness. This is a strong and rich cigar, packed with smoke and flavor. Huge thing, one of those cigars you can feel in your gut.  Don't smoke on a empty stomach. A great cigar.

Paired with Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale and sardines.

60 degrees after a huge wet rainy storm.

Perdomo Habano Corojo - 10/14/2012

Posted: Sunday, October 14, 2012
Perdomo Habano Corojo Robusto, 5x52. Aged in the humidor for 2 1/2 years, wicked nice spice and pepper.  Very nice cigar, probably can age longer.  The cellophane was deep rust color and the pre-light aroma was arousing.

Paired with 2007 Rosenblum Alexander Valley Harris Kratka Vineyard Zinfandel.  Nicely aged Zin.

73 degrees, windless perfect evening.

Tabantillas Romeros Natural - 09/10/2012

Posted: Sunday, September 16, 2012
Tabantillas (a gift from a friend - I believe it to be a Tabantillas Romeros Natural, 4.5x52).  Fast burning well built.  Kept an even burn and tight ash.  Flavor was unremarkable except for a slight tar taste for the first two thirds.

Paired with a super slug of the incredible Ron Zacapa.

Warm night, 83 degrees.
