Got home yesterday from the RTDA (Retail Tobacco Dealers of America) convention in New Orleans.
It's a must at least once if you're a smoker of domestically available cigars. I was completely overwhelmed with the scope of the whole thing. Cigars and pipes as far as I could see and plenty of free samples. I came home with a ton of new smokes to try and I plan on doing some reviews of the new and small brands I found there. I'll be sure to post them here but they'll be up over at CW as well.
I haven't put a review together on it as yet, but if you find a Los Blancos at the local Brick and Mortar you owe it to yourself to grab one. The Sumatran I smoked had a beautiful, oily and lively wrapper and smoked like a dream. Wonderful cigar all the way 'round.
Anyhoo, Here's a few pics
. I kinda got distracted and didn't do much of job taking shots, but here's what I got.
