I haven't had an Umbagog in a while. Looks like it will be warm enough here too to smoke something of a better quality. Enjoy your Sakas!

Don't have any Umbagogs but I might fit a Mi Querita or Sobramesa this afternoon.

I was thinking about having an Umbagog today, now I'm sure I will.

Jas. they say you either like Sobremesa and dislike Mi Querida or vice-versa. I found them BOTH quite tasty, it's been a few months. Although my preference is for the Mi Querida.

I had a Sobramesa a couple of weeks ago and liked it a lot. I'd smoke an Umbagogs if I could find one locally. Not ready to buy more until I know I like them.

I'll keep that in mind, T.

I'm with Tommy on this. The Todos Dias (sp?) are also very good. May have to break in to my last bundle of Umbagogs this weekend.

Jason I’ll put a few Umbagogs in the mail to you Monday for you to try. Have you had either the Sobremesa or Mi Querida yet?

I have 2 Sobramesa and one Mi Querida. I've had a Sobramesa and liked it a lot. Thinking about sparking up the Querida today or tomorrow. I looked through my IPCPR stash and found no Umbagogs. Might have given them away in prize packs or FFL winnings. Even so, thanks for your generosity.

I don't think the Umbagogs were ready for IPCPR. They're very limited production, when he's out of the tobacco he's out. Next year's Umbagog will be different, yet again. At best, that's what I read before; it's his "bundle" cigar made with left-over leaf from his other offerings, that means each year's production will be different.

I've had one Todos Las Dias, and gave one to Keith. It's a tremendous cigar, and strong.
