Micallef Gomez Sanchez Experienca la Crema tonight.

superb cigar, very well built and a 2 hour Churchill even drawing often.

still have 23 more of these and they are still at the top if my list even though it’s a medium body instead of a little fuller stick being my preference.

Loved the Black Dragon.

revisiting the Gurkha Titan again tonight. My first experience with it was horrible mostly because of the poor build. This Churchill seems better at least.

Todays stick...

Gurkha Park Avenue torpedo.

Definitely a budget smoke.
Wrapper was thinner than an onion skin. Draw in the beginning was effortless but the 2nd half was a fight. Smoke was light and unimpressive.

However, flavor wasnt bad and it burned for a little over an hour... Probably would have gone a other 30min but I was getting tired of it.:D

Ive got a couple more, ill see if this one was a fluke.

Got a few sticks to trade if anyone in the area is interested.

I have (4) Gurkha Doble Maduro Gordos (6.5x58)

Too big for my liking, got a 5 pack of them and while its a nice smoke, Im not down with the larger gauges... so these arent going to be smoked.

Looking to trade for similar quality cigars 1:1 or if you have something a little nicer I'd go 2:1

Size? Something like a Corona, Robusto or a Toro, etc. Ill do a torpedo or a belicoso up to a 52RG

Will trade for anything, I enjoy a lighter smoke as much as a full bodied stick.

Also in classifieds... (58) Gurkha Cigars (4) Doble Maduro 6.5x58 | Northwest Firearms - Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming Gun Owners

Gurkha Doble Maduro this morning.

Very much my preferred flavor profile.

That and I like a larger cigar:D. Been almost hot boxing this thing and it only started to get warm in the last inch.

Thanks for the trade @shibbershabber;).

I also really like those Taraño’s:cool:.

Had a Don Raphial Mexico blend mid day.

Went with another Gurkha Doble Maduro for this evening.

These things are a perfect size for me (6x60) and put out enough smoke to be considered a small campfire lol.

super smooth though so I love em.

5 Vegas Series A tonight.

Got x10 6”x60’s today and another 10 pack arriving tomorrow so I grabbed one to see how the bigger ones smoked.

I see people advocating to let them acclimate before smoking, dunno if that’s a need or not as this ones not bad straight out of the mailbox. Although the burn is a little uneven.

Had an Alec Bradley Tempus the other night.

Started off a little rough and an uneven burn... but half way thru it smoothed out well enough.

Have a Tempus Maduro coming that I'm looking forward to trying.

Again with the 5 Vegas A....

This one sat in the humidor first the last 24 hours and is burning a lot better then the one last night. Ash looks better and no touch ups have been needed.

I guess I’m going to be letting new shipments sit a bit before trying them. Or maybe it was a fluke...

Padilla La Terraza Maduro 6x6 tonight.

Just got them in the mail today and if I knew they were this good I would have ordered 2 boxes instead of 1...
