Last night I had the pleasure again of going to the cigar friendly Downingtown Hotel to see my good friend Greg’s band, Now and Then. I took a bunch of cigars along, hoping that the few friends I’d invited would show up. Unfortunately my friends were unable to make it, but I was able to enjoy a terrific Rocky Patel The Edge Maduro Lancero while rocking to the band. I love the lancero format, (7″ x 38) it really forces you to slow down and enjoy the pleasant cocoa and coffee flavors of this cigar. Lanceros need to be “sipped” to be enjoyed or one runs the risk of overheating the cigar. I managed to nurse it through almost 3 sets before giving up. I believe this cigar to be a Famous Smoke Shop exclusive but I received it as a gift. I haven’t really smoked a lot of the Rocky Patel offerings for no particular reason, but I very much enjoyed this particular cigar.
I’ve recently come across Cigar Films (cigarfilms.com) and started watching the videos. I’ve only watched a couple so far but I’ve found them entertaining. Give them a look if you are a fan of cigar related videos.
Now, what everyone has been waiting for: the announcement of the winner of the Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 5 pack. Please watch this short video:
Congratulations to the winner, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address so that I can get your prize out this week!
Thanks to everyone for participating. This is the first of many contests sponsored by my friends at Drew Estate! I appreciate their support!
The background music on the video is “Redemption” from the 25 Smokin’ Figurados album “Divine Spirits, Holy Smoke”. Great stuff! Thanks Gregg and Tim!
That’s it for now! Until the next cigar,
