I know the last few times I was stateside I enjoyed some Rocky Patels and Padrons.
What are the Rocky Patels like? I've heard good things about them but have yet to try one. Which ones do you keep in your humi?

I've tried a few different Patels and don't remember any I didn't like. I pretty much just have Cubans because I can get them off base and in a cantina on base. You can't even find non-Cuban Cigars throughout most of Germany or Europe for that matter. Right now I've been on a kick with Hoyo Epicure Especials and #1's. Plus Cohiba Siglo's #'s 2&4.

They do indeed. I was out for a stroll enjoying the MC the other day. A fellow walks by with his dog and asks me if he smelled Indonesian cigarettes.

What?

I just smoked my last Cohiba Genios yesterday. Not a big Maduro fan but these were excellent. I think next run to the Cig shop I'm going to pick up some MC #2's since everyones talking about them and it's been awhile since I had one.

Matt, those are some very nice MC GR's. FDM68 those are some nice vacation cigars

I'm debating whether or not to buy some Cohiba Behikes, I have never tried them. What are your reviews of them, guys? Also, has anyone here tried "Art of War - Armadas" ? The set is $500 and the cigar box is hand made wood. The reviews on them are quite high.

Had my Hemingway Short stories come in. Glad I only got a 5-pack of them. I'm not really enjoying them. So far, the first one has tasted like a cigarette and chocked full of that "chemical" taste I find in cigarettes. Is this a bad batch?

I'd have to say there was definantly something wrong there. Never heard of this happening with actual cigars....some crap like king edwards yes but not something like a Hemingway....I'd return to the shop and speak to the proprieter.

My typical smoke right now is Davidoff 2000s. Fantastically smooth, some slight pepper and great draw. Also an easy 30-45min smoke. Being from CT I am also more inclined towards Connecticut Shade wrappers than many.

Side note: The 2000 is a mild cigar that I really enjoy. I know that full bodied really seems to be the popular item at the moment but I honestly think many people are missing out on how great a well crafted but mild stick can be. I am all for enjoying my Cohibas or my favorite Ashton VSGs but my Davidoff 2000 cannot be replaced along with some other mild favorites.

I need to get some BHK's but the only place is off base and way expensive. Maybe I'll talk to the Canadiens and see if they can get some. It's been a while since I've had any of them.
