Initial smells like Cap’n Crunch cereal, never had a cigar smell like that. I literally sat here and smelled it ‘unlit’ for 10 minutes, such a treat. Drinking Eagle Rare Bourbon.

Davidoff Puro D’Oro Gordito

3.75×58″ Initial: I haven’t smoked a ton of Davidoff’s, mostly because my local shop doesn’t carry them. They say they cost too much for their clientele and the minimum order is $50k, so I was pretty happy to see this in a package Ben sent me for Christmas. It smells of stout and sweet chewing…
