I spent the past week in Destin, FL, where I checked out a local shop (Harbor Cigars) and bought a few smokes I had never tried:

La Gloria Cubana Series R #4--
--this was a damn fine smoke; it had everything: aesthetics, complexity, strength, and rich flavor; this is a new fav' for me!

CAO Brazilia Gol!-- --I had heard so much about these from you guys that I had to try one; I was not disappointed; it wasn't as strong as I anticipated, but it was very tasty; man, what a nice wrapper!
I will be trying more.

Camacho Corojo Robusto-- --had heard a lot about these, too; rustic-looking, nice and smooth; left me wanting in the strength department; will try again with a cup of strong coffee or hops-containing beverage.

Indian Tabac Limited Reserve Bison -- --actually from a trade with sevenmag; this was a nice, mild-medium smoke with plenty of creamy smoke with hints of cedar; I look forward to trying more of these and this brand.

Still to come (whenever I smoke 'em): La Perla Habana Black Pearl Robusto, Puros Indios Maxima Reserva Toro, Partagas Black Label Robusto, Te Amo Toro, Sosa Toro.

If you are ever in the Destin/Fort Walton area, check out Harbor Cigars. It was a first-class joint!

Thanks for the reviews stumpy. There will be a group of us over in the Ft.Walton/Destin area next month....we will definitely be stopping by Harbor Cigars(I've heard a lot of good comments about them)...I think they have a website also.
If you get the chance, try the Camacho Corojo Nacionale.....I think you'll find that one has a nice "kick" to it!

Thanks for the reviews. I'm surprised about your comments about the Camacho corojo - I thought these were pretty strong.

I guess that's what I was expecting, but I was underwhelmed. I'll have to try another.

Thanks for the "mini-reviews". Some of those are already my current favorites. If you have extra, send them to me...
