Today's Smokes, 2016 edition!

So what you smoking today, Brothers and Sisters of the leaf?
DO TELL!

If you think the stogie is review worthy, write it up and PM BigO, Jazznut, or me! We'll work with you to get it front page ready!

For me? Asylum13... Need to smoke one of these bad boys!

Thinking I'm going to dig that Senorial I've been hiding for over a year now. Good choice on the Asylum 13. Enjoy!

Ahh, senorial! Dr. Blanco does some damned good work. The Freya is just a tad too strong for me, but the senorial, after a meal, is so tasty.

I started off the day smoking a Padilla Hybrid. I like this cigar.

This one being aged brought it down just a notch in strength to make it perfect for me. Really good with the humi time. Found a box of toros yesterday for 40% off. Couldn't believe they were on clearance. They are mine now.?

Started this year, right now, with a La Luna Maduro Fuerte...

... the 5" Tornado, one from that set of boxes of a variety of vitolas Gael sold way back for $500 or so. As I recall he met me in Sarasota and transferred them to me in the parking lot of Marina Jack's...

So how was it? I have a box of these that have not been pulled from yet. Based on your experience I may have to change that!

Still very pleased with it, they hold up nicely, even with...

.. my less-than-perfect humidifier record. Still VERY robust...

Brought in the New Year with a A.J. Fernandez Reconquita. What a great cigar.
