it's a great day for a picnic,think i'll smoke a cigar
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other002-9.jpg

solid easy grip,tobacco and a light pepper smell
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other004-5.jpg

easy cut, a quick light,and i have a new friend.
spiced coffee with hay in the first couple of puffs
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other005-4.jpg

a few puffs later and cream has been added to my coffee. still have the spice and hay,and i believe they are coming together nicely
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other009-4.jpg

steady smoking,diggin' on the flavors
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other013-4.jpg

ash fell at about an inch or so,then the spice kicked up a notch and brought a little cocoa with it
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other014-3.jpg

it's kicking,i'm digging it,and it's a great day for a smoke!
'scuse me while i kiss the sky
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other017-4.jpg

almost halfway,the hay has turned to grass,cream is there with the light spiced coffee and just a glimpse of cocoa
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other018-4.jpg

2/3 in and the spice has gotten a little peppery,no bite,not over powering,but definitely the front runner.
still tasting coffee,cream is fainter,cocoa is just barely there,grass/hay has faded
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other019-5.jpg

3/4 and still having fun. i don't own a watch,mostly because i don't care what time it is,but i think i've been smoking an hour or so.
cream is very light.coffee,grass and cocoa have blended and are having a party in my mouth,dancing on my taste buds,and tickling my nose.
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other025-1.jpg

final couple of inches,bandless,but this bad boy is starting to kick!
pepper is running the show,with a grass/hay barnyard taste gaining,cream and coffee are in the back and cocoa has left the building
http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p275/shuckins1/other028-1.jpg

nubbin' it and luvin' it! this is one of those cigars that you finish and immediatly want another one.
sadly,it's my only one

I love your reviews. They're like comic strips and they tell a nice little story :) It's just a shame that at the end of each one the hero gets skewered ;)

Nice job!
(and the hat's O.K. too - but the sun-glasses http://www.pic4ever.com/images/dancing1.gifwhat were you thinking?)

But anyway.
So, where would you place the 'Sublime' if you were ranking it in relation to the other Cohiba's you've reviewed lately?

Jus' curious is all.

Hi El Cat
You must have posted this as I was writing mine,
You reckon it's the Sublime he's smoking, just that it looks very small in his hands for the Sublime, possibly just the way the pictures taken but considering it's 6.3/8 x 54 :41:
A fine review all the same makes me want to fire one up :cowboyic9:

Yeah, I thought the photo's looked a little misleading too.
It looks small in the hand. . . but bigger in his mouth? http://www.pic4ever.com/images/acigar.gif
No offence Ron!

I saved a few (for special occasions).
Love 'em, but just like Ron's, the wrappers let them down a little, at least in comparison to the kind of thing Cohiba are 'knocking out' these days.

the cigar was in a bomb i received and i'm not sure which one it is. it wasn't a 54 ring though. as for where i would rate it,i would say it was in the same class as the robusto,which is one of my favorites.

the sunglasses?
i was thinking,it's sunny out...lol

i smoked it, and then checked to see what it was. i didn't check the ring gauge before smoking,but it felt smaller than a 54.
let me know what you find out. i enjoyed it,whatever it was...

Still think it was the sublime.

Here is a rough (very rough) unscientific comparison.
About the same?

Guys, the cigar pictured on page 1 of this thread is NOT a Sublime. The lenght/width ratio is not right. The Sublime looks much more stocky.

Great review Ron - I love the pics and the setting. :thumb: Certainly a 'wish you were here' moment.

It didn't look quite right proportionally for a Sublimes in a couple of the pics, but it'd have to be (hey, that's photos for you - always playing optical illusions).

I can't tell what I'm more envious of--the cigar collection, which I imagine is stored in an abandoned airplane hangar, or the free time to smoke it. Another awesome review Shuckins.

Looks far more like the 2003 DC with the wrong date!
