thanks to chris (magnate) for the dry fly,and i bombed myself with the gran reserva. it happens sometimes...lol

nice solid feel,smells like butter dipped in smoked paprika
pre-light puffs and i can taste the creaminess already.

thick solid draw,ample smoke,no bite,creamy and spicy at the same time
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other115.jpg

1st sip of dry fly. a tangy citrus,like biting into an orange peel. goes down smooth though
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other121.jpg

zilla,that's not for you!
and i don't know where you got that chain,but stop playing mr. g and put it back!
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other119.jpg

1/3 of the way in and it has settled into a nice creamy dream like cigar.
paired with the exciting dry fly,it's like taking a nap on a roller coaster,you know you're on a wild ride,but you're comfortable with it
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other120.jpg

slow burning,slow sipping,it's a good way to spend an afternoon.
1/2 halfway and there are no real changes in the flavors. same creamy,light spice from the gran reserva,and a smoothness from the dry fly that could get a person a little tipsy if he weren't careful...lol
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other125.jpg

a puff of smoke,a sip of fly and i have a nutty barley taste happening.
soft grey ash,fell at about every 1 1/2"
puff,sip,smile. i could definitely get used to this!
you know i like it when the hat matches the cigar.
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other128.jpg

2/3 and it's getting a little spicier,with a touch of cocoa creeping in. i believe it has changed gears from cruise to go.
gotta twang working now. more of the grassy flavor that i'm used to coming through
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other129.jpg

last couple of inches and it's kicking now! got that grassy barnyard thing happening.
oh how i love that grassy barnyard thing! the dry fly is adding barley and citrus nuances that are an added plus to the cigar
had to remove the bands, i wanna smoke it all
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other135.jpg

no doubt about nubbin this one. the final puffs are trance-like with visions of granduer,i see myself buying a box of these and smoking happily ever after...
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other139.jpg

a smooth sipping whiskey,an easy puffing cigar, and a crazy reptile to hang out with. does life get any better than this?
i'm not sure i could handle it if it did...lol

thanks for reading. hope you enjoyed the review!
