A few new ones

Unread postby Brewer » Mon Sep 20, 2010 10:23 am

I picked up a few new items to try one of these days: Partagas Gold (I think), Padron (which variety I don't know), A Fuentes Gran Reserva, Nat Sherman, CAO & a local item called Pride. Some of the labels don't clarify which cigar I have from a certain manufacturer. How do I know what I have? :smilecigar: :?:

Bob,

Sometimes a cigars provenance is about as clear as a bourbons. You have to dig to find out where a cigar came from in some cases. Also, the label may change ownership which adds another wrinkle (think Old Fitzgerald). The Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva is a very fine cigars. Nice pick.

And a few more...3 from Brick House: Toro, Carona Larga & Robusto. Tried the Robusto today, and thought it was pretty good.

Today I tried one I didn't have before. It was a Cifuentes Partagas. Rather inexpensive (for Partagas) and very flavorful. I'll buy more of these.
