    A colleague left this on my desk for me. I think it's dessert this evening. :)

    I had a Cohiba Siglo IV from 2012 this evening that was gifted to me by an online friend. It was a fantastic cigar.

    Finally getting to the aforementioned Helix, with a glass of Duchesse De Bourgogne and Shirley Horne and friends in the CD player.

    Not a fan of infused cigars myself, but smoke what you like.

    I don't care for those, either. But the Helix Blue is natural - not infused. Helix "remix" apparently is infused - news to me.

    I enjoyed a Ramon Allones Short Corona Club last night after dinner with coffee. I am glad I have a few left.

    Opus X Angels Share Robusto that has been resting in the humi for almost 2 years. These are milder (medium) than a regular Opus (full) and delicious cigars.

    I see we have a member @Cigarman and hopefully he will join this thread.

    Finally had an opportunity to read this thread, I do tech support these days for Law Enforcement, county level, and it has been a bit busy. I only mention this as police officers are very much cigar lovers. If you hit one of the smoke shops in town during a promotional event it is tough to find a spot in the parking lot for all of the black and whites crowding the asphalt. Not surprising that many Audiophiles are also stogie buffs, much of the same neurosis at work manifesting itself in different venues. Thanks for the invite.

    I am currently working my way to the bottom on the last of a box of Cohiba EL 2001 Piramides (Cuban variety, picked up in Deutschland last time I was there), but these are the last of my Habanos stash. Been contemplating a trip to the sunny island now that it is possible to bring back a few more, back on the bucket list. Nothing wrong with Dominicans these days - very fond of the whole Ashton VSG line (grown by young nubile virgins in the Sun of the Dominican Republic I’m told....), excellent smokes. Other Dominicans I smoke are Davidoff 2000s & 5000s (Davidoff Grand Cru No. 3 is also outstanding). Saw a few other Fuente fans above, just flat love the entire Arturo Fuente Don Carlos line, but am particularly fond of the torp. Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story is superb for a quick smoke, as are all of the Hemingway sizes. I was gifted a few of Fuente’s Anejos Reserva No. 46 over the holidays, these are a jewel but only available on Xmas and Fathers Day.

    Romeo y Julieta’s are nice as well, and reasonable (well, all things being relative....). The Exhibicion No. 4 Cabinet, Cedro Deluxe #3 & #4, the Belicoso, one of my favorite vitolos. Recently picked up a box of My Fathers Flor de Las Antillas toros, might have a new favorite. If you have not tried the Ecuadorian Habano seed wrapped Ave Maria line, give them a try. Their blends are a great choice for fans of smooth, medium-bodied cigars with a nice Cubanesque aroma. Rapidly became one of my go-to patios smokes this summer. Very nice blend, surprised at the level of construction, holds a nice two inch ash.

    Guess that is the 'short list', but probably have pretty much every major roller in any of my three humidors, left overs from boxes or samplers picked up in the past. Just like good LP's I seem to have a penchant for collecting this crap.......
    I could be wrong here, but not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious. (If you ever reach total enlightenment while drinking tequila, I’ll bet it makes tequila shoot out your nose). But I digress……

    I just enjoyed a Drew Estate Undercrown Flying Pig. Killer little smokes.
