Daily Smokes Mini Reviews 2018

Hi folks. I post on the "Today's Smokes" thread frequently and in addition to the cigar I smoked I usually add a couple lines about how I feel about the cigar. So the wheels got turning a bit and I thought it might be nice to post daily smokes with a light review. Maybe a little about the cigar, how it tasted and whether you liked it or not. Put some good information out there for our fellow cigar smokers.
Here's my example:

This morning I smoked a Sacra Folium Golden Ratio Toro. It had a good looking light shade wrapper, was firm and well constructed and was complex and tasty. I'd say it's a medium body smoke. I liked it a lot!

Word it any way you want. Longer or shorter is fine. Imbue it with your own character.

I like it, Tim!

I'll have to smoke something and post it!

Open to everyone, just a line or two about your recent smoking experience. Just a few words Yeah or Nay, size and stuff like that.

Cheers!

Cro-Magnum Intemperance - Good looking cigar, but I found it a little harsh. Needs some aging time.

El Gueguense The Wise Man - Very nice med-full cigar. Smooth and enjoyable.

Thumbs up

Sacra Folium? I've not heard of this.

This idea is VERY CWish. Of course, if we have questions or comments, a separate thread would then be in order. I'd like to see this, as well.

Another of my grab bag smokes. I checked them out at Small Batch. Expensive, but maybe worth it.

Today the weather is pretty iffy. Rain, wind and high humidity. I pulled out a Drew Estate Nica Rustica Toro. It's a dark, fairly full bodied cigar. When they are good I like them. This one had a poor draw. Even after using the Perfect Draw tool I had a hard time getting a decent amount of smoke. There were hard spots in the cigar that turned into little briquettes. I managed okay, but the smoke was less than satisfying. After smoking 6 or 7 of these now I'm finding them a bit inconsistent.

Warped El Oso Miami Corona. I like this cigar! Well made with a nice rich flavor. Lots of smoke with a super tight ash. Recommended!

Last evening, as a thunderstorm raged seemingly right over my house, and the neighborhood, I enjoyed a Gran Habano VL maduro belicoso. My son came outside and noticed, immediately, that the "room note" or the aroma of the smoke was quite sweet.

I did not notice that the direct flavor was TOO sweet, but I surmise that it's the maduro. The smoke was generous, the flavor was not harsh at any time, kind of leathery, if I remember accurately.

Fine cigar, have smoked them before and will do so again with enjoyment.

My quick review...the Bugatti cigar is the best $0.16 cigar I have ever smoked! (They were on sale for 5 for $1 and 20% off a while back.)
