Viaje Zombie Super Shot

Today’s cigar of choice was the Viaje Zombie Super Shot 2012. I just thought this would be a fitting cigar to smoke after the new season of “The Walking Dead” last night. This is only my second Zombie, but this will be a regular in my wineador. At first glance, this short big gauge cigar…

Viaje 2012 Collectors Edition

I had the pleasure of smoking this Viaje Collectors Edition 2012. This was a perfecto size, which is a peculiar size to roll and sometimes doesn’t smoke very easily but this Viaje was awesome.

Today’s smoke is being paired with Pumpkin beer from Elysian brewing in Seattle, it’s the Ventura Cigar Project 805. Ventura cigar sent me a few of these and another cigar to sample, and so far this 805 is pretty good. I would judge it as a medium bodied cigar that produces a lot of smoke.…

La Flor Dominica Light

The La Flor Dominica “Light”, for the afternoon stroll. This is one amazing cigar, and completely different than the other LFD’s that I have smoked recently. This is one of the smoothest and yet flavorful cigars I have had by them. The pre light aroma was very earthy and the flavors reminded me of pecans.…

My smoke for the afternoon was the Viaje Skull and Bones “Little Boy”. The first thing you will notice is both ends are capped, and for me I clipped both and lit it up. Pre-light, this cigar had an amazing aroma and seemed to be really well aged, I had been sent this by a…
