    I got back to my apartment around 9pm last night and headed straight for the laundry room to do a few loads of wash. Wouldn’t you know it, somebody got there 1 minute before I did and managed to monopolize both washers before I could get a glimpse of his or her face. ONE LOUSY MINUTE! So, I had some time to spare and decided to sit outside with a cigar and glass of lemonade. The smoke of …

    I’ve been chomping at the bits waiting for this cigar to come in. You see, we received samples of this cigar on the same day as the Triple Ligero X3.

I remember my first Mini Belicoso like it was yesterday. I was still …

    It’s arrived, Triple Ligero, a gorgeous cigar that I ‘tested’ a few months ago. So potent was this cigar, I had to put it down for a little while before finishing it later. The strength made it quite difficult to concentrate on my work. But the flavor was amazing. Rich, robust, and spicier than any cigar I’ve smoked to date. Did you happen to read my write-up on Diablo? If …
