    Tonight I enjoyed an Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story with a martini while listening to a cover band on a patio at one of my favorite local bars. The Short Story is one of my favorite smokes when I don't feel like a big smoke. Very nice.

    I really like the Short Story too. Was yours a natural or maduro?

    This was the natural. I prefer it just a bit over the Maduro. But I enjoy them both.

    I like them both too, but give a slight edge to the Maduro. Really good cigars at a reasonable price. Fuente is my favorite cigar maker. Their tobacco just tastes right.

    The waterfall isn't running yet, but close enough. :)

    Nice waterfall. There in nthing better than a cocktail, a ballgame on the radio, a nice cigar outside on a summer evening. My Friday night cigar and Manhattan partner of 30 years has a son who pitches in MLB. We spend every Friday night in front of the (internet) radio enjoying several cigars and cocktails with various Major and Minor league baseball games throughout the night. We start on the East Coast games and move West as the night progresses. Adding running water in the background would be sublime.

    Enjoyed a Fuente Opus X #4 last night. I hadn't had a cigar in over 2 weeks and last night was a perfect evening on the patio.

    Temple Hall # 625. As I have gotten older I actually prefer milder smokes and these Temple Halls fit the bill. The most under rated brand out there that I have encountered.

    An office colleague left a couple of these on my desk the other day - Placeres Reserva (Honduras) robusto. I usually prefer a light-wrapper, but this Maduro (I think) is pretty nice! With Woodford Reserve Double-Oaked in the glass!

    Looks good Don. I just finished a great supper and am having a cup of coffee. Your post made me grab a Warped Flor de Val Antilles Corona. Warped make some fantastic cigars.
