Today I had the pleasure of enjoying a Vegas de Santiago “Secretos del Maestro” Torpedo. I’m always a fan of the 6.125″ x 52 figurado. This was a fine cigar, although I enjoyed the 4″ x 60 more. Somehow the flavors were more pronounced in the short fat format. Still, a really nice cigar considering they run in the $4 or less range, which is pretty amazing. Remember to enter the contest on my last post and win one of these, along with a 4″ x 60 and several other Vegas de Santiago cigars.
Thursday afternoon we had a line of violent storms go through which wreaked havoc on the area. My in-laws has several large branches break off some of their trees and we spent the better part of Saturday cleaning up. The reason I bring this up is that it put another $40 in my CigarSafari fund. Along with the $3.00 I scrounged up in change brings me up to $163.00. My goal is to save up the cost of the trip without having to dig in to our household budget. I also put a couple Circuit City shirts that my wife donated to me on E-bay, and am going to scrounge around the house and see what other items I can get rid of.
Not much else to report, after busting my butt yesterday (along with my left leg, which I beat the heck out of on two occasions, and have been limping around all day), and considering the high heat and humidity, I didn’t smoke too many cigars. I have a couple more Vegas de Santiago cigars to smoke in the coming week leading up to the conclusion of the contest, including a 5 year old “Chaman” in a cool wooden tube.
Until the next cigar,
