    It's Lent PJ, a time of deprivation & penitence; that's when I smoke my gifted NC's & Havana's under E5.

After switched to 3 small Triple Karmalite beers. Shame I couldn't smoke it outside but that day the weather was pretty crap & I didn't want to have to come in half way through. the flav was good from the start but took a couple of inches to fully kick in. middle third being delightful. Just turning a little bitter just above the band so I put it down. Anyone else smoked one of these lately?

    Never tried a Monte A but the pictures certainly look like it was a wonderful cigar to enjoy.

    I have 3 boxes and one incoming (of 5) and an aged one from 2004. I gifted @gojira the box, so it’s just lying there waiting for the right time. How long should I expect the smoking time to be?

    Hi Mike, Sorry missed your question. I smoked this one with hardly putting the cigar down & towards the end felt a little time pressure. It also turned a little bitter above the band, previously I have smoked them right to the nub. So I'd say from 2hrs 45 to 3hrs+. First rules should be, ensure you have 4hrs! Then there will be no rush. & have sufficient drinks close at hand so you don't have to get up & keep ordering. I'll try to smoke another this summer & report back.

    Here's some other cigars smoked last leave: An ERDM DT in the church garden. ERDM.DT.2019.04.07.DSC_1900.1.jpgWife bought a new car (Juke) & we went to put some KM on it to run it in. My wife chose Maastrict, which was nice - as I know the owner of the LCDH there. We droppe din before lunch but turns out my friend wasn't there so I had a poke around & picked up a Hoyo LCDH, to smoke later.

    So another leave passed & a few more excellent Havana's sacrificed. Started when I hit the beach in Aberdeen after my last trip offshore. My first trip this year when I actually got off on time. So I met up with my herfing buddies McDee & Wigan at CASC & enjoyed a QdO panatela 2009, from Tippex. QdO.Pan.2019.05.02.DSC_1969a.1.jpgThese are discontinued but if you can find them anywhere, they are certainly worth the market price, light but tasty & best enjoyed smoking slowly & to be honest, in a warmer environment that that evening! QdO.Pan.2019.05.02.DSC_1971.1.jpgMy first smoke at home, was visiting my friend Rony in his nursing home St Anna's. This place allows smoking inside, in designated smoking room, with just an open window for ventilation. But if the weather is better the residents & their guests can buy a beer at their in house café & smoke in the garden. I wonder if there's any similar arrangements at any nursing home in the UK these days?Cuaba.Divinos.2019.05.09.DSC_1998a.1.jpg These are great wee, tasty 'eye openers' for a morning smoke, with a strong coffee, since they used mould, I personally haven't had any construction issues - with the exception of one recent one that I ended up cutting a larger slice from the foot than normal.Cuaba.Divinos.2019.08.09.DSC_1999.1.jpg After a long daily walk around my local town, I rested with this PL Picadore, gifted by an American BOTL, Mike A. These are rather excellent smokes, that don't seem to need much aging but for me don't have the PL taste profile, certainly wouldn't guess it was a PL in a blind tasting. PL.Picadore.2019.05.13.DSC_2030.1.jpgPL.Picadore.2019.10.13.DSC_2031a.1.jpgAfter another walk, I stopped at a rather smart café in Merksem, as it had started to drizzle. luckily they have a covered area & so I took my Palm & coffee out there & lit up this Italian PL ER2013 PL.ER2013.2019.05.10.DSC_2009.1.jpgFive yrs has aged this nicely & I could taste the PL profile in this very attractive stick.PL.ER2013.2019.05.17.DSC_2043.a.1.jpg.
