Down for the count… AGAIN!

November 2, 2008

Hey everyone…   yeah, I’m still here.

Sorry about not posting in a while – I have been sick (AGAIN!) for the past week and a half.  What the hell?!?  Oh well, at least I am once again in the process of recovery.  I had a pretty nast head and chest cold but I am not coughing up lung butter anymore, so that is a good thing.

Had a most excellent Custom Lonsdale last night…  what a good way to get back into the swing of things.

I will try to get back to the reviews as soon as possible.

Thanks for hanging with me!

I am almost completely recovered…

September 28, 2008

Well, I think I have just about beat this goddamn headcold…   Unfortunately, my palate is not quite up for a review yet.  I did smoke a hell of a cigar to test things out though — a Hoyo de Monterrey Double Corona from 2004.  Some really wonderful Cuban twang and flavors – at the same time smooth and refined.  I couldn’t pick out a lot of what I thought I should be able to, so I am going to maybe try a review in the next few days and see how things go.

Thanks for your patience…   I am trying to find some interesting cigars to review at the moment.  There are so many new offerings, that I am having a hell of a time figuring out what I should try to locate and buy.

Is there anything that any of you would like to see me review?  Let me know, and I will be happy to add it to my list assuming I can find it around here or online.

Cheers,
~B~

Down for the week…

September 21, 2008

Well…   I was hoping to get a review in, but it just doesn’t look like it is in the cards.  I am feeling the beginnings of some kind of head cold/sickenss, and I need to try and fight it off.  My palate won’t be much good for a review for the next few days at least.

I hope to get a RASS in tonight for good measure though…    🙂

Keep reading the other cigar blogs I have linked, and I will start reviews again as soon as I get through this!

Thanks to those who read this little blog, I appreciate it!

Me and Cigar Magazine…

September 1, 2008

So a little while back, I decided to throw my hat in the ring when Cigar Magazine called for reviewers for their “Many Faces Of…” feature.

I was shocked that I was picked, especially since I had lat my subscription run out over a year before.  Anyway, I was informed that it was going to be “Many Faces of CAO”, and I received a load of CAO cigars to smoke and review.

My feelings were quite honestly mixed, as I have not had the best CAO experieneces in the world, aside from the Brazilias (which I do enjoy).

I was determined to be HONEST, and typed up my reviews and sent them in.  I had a couple of positive things to say about a couple of the cigars, and a lot of not so positive things.

Well, I just found out that one of my comments made it to print – and not one of the more positive comments suprisingly enough…    It was a comment I made about a CAO Sopranos Soldier – here it is:

 

 

 

Well, I said I was going to be honest, didn’t I?  🙂

 

Hiatus

August 19, 2007

Hey all…   okay, in this case “all” really refers to the 2-3 people that actually read this…

Juast a quick post to inform you that I will be taking a break from posting for a little bit.  The blog really hasn’t really been what I expected so far, and I need to wait until I have more time to dedicate to my writing for it to work at all.   I had wanted to include all sorts of my random ramblings and thoughts, but time is not on my side at the moment.

Plus, with 2 or so comments and no subscribers, its not like I think anyone is going to give a rusty fuck anyway.

 I still subscribe to several blogs, and will continue to enjoy them.  I also encourage you to visit all of the cigar sites I have linked for you to the right.

Thanks and take care for now!

Cigar Jack Contest!

July 21, 2007

So…  Cigar Jack is running a little contest – you ought to check it out here —>

 http://www.cigarjack.net/2007/07/19/win-an-item-for-the-cigar-jack-store/

You can have tons of fun and win fabulous prizes.   Okay…   so me blogging about his contest is one way that I may win a fabulous fun-filled prize, but that’s not important right now…

Just go to his site (it is linked over there on the right in case you haven’t figured it out yet) and comment on the entry “Win an Item from the Cigar Jack Store”

It’s that simple!

So, he asked what we thought of his new site…   I only have one comment/question…

Here is part of his new logo:

I like it…   but don’t you think he could have spent about two extra minutes with a paint program to at least add some hair?

Examples:

Just a thought… 

 (Okay seriously…  it is a great site with tons of great info – just wanted to have a little fun!  :-))
