Lane: Welcome everyone to Cigar Cafe Radio. I’m your co-host here with Harris and Sean as usual. What are we smoking lately? I smoked the last 4 1502 Black and Gold from Harris.
Harris: I’m smoking the AFR- 75 by PDR Cigars. I believe it is their top of the line cigar. $15 range. It is starting out great. Very smooth full body.
Sean: I got a new blower and I’m really excited about it. It can blow or suck leaves! (sidetrack)
Lane: I’m smoking the Jericho Hill 12 Honest Men today. It is a limited edition lancero release from Crowned Heads. Its stating out medium plus with dry pepper, spice, leather, natural tobacco
Sean: I smoked another Undercrown Shade. In the past I’ve said I was not thrilled with this cigar. This past weekend I smoked one that sat in my humidor for three months and it was much better.
Sean: Lane is going on vacation AGAIN! What cigars are you taking on the cruise?
Lane: Here is what I am packing in my travel humidor for the cruise: Arturo Fuente Opus X Perfection, 1502 Black Gold, AVO Syncro, Nat Sherman 546 Timeless, H. Upmann Banker, La Flor Dominicana 1994, Liga Privada Dirty Rat.
Sean: Wow that is a nice selection for your trip
Sean: What’s the buzz in the cigar world lately?
Lane: I am really liking this 1502 Black Gold. The second third has a very unique cherry flavor on the retrohale like pipe tobacco
Sean: My teams finished 1-3 in the youth football Super Bowl this year. The team I coach won. My son lost 6-3 in triple overtime. It was tough to decide whether to smoke or not since my son’s team lost. I smoked the AVO LE 09 Companero. It was outstanding, very balanced. Notes of light spice, sweetness, tobacco.
Lane: I really like the AVO Classic Covers 2. It is similar to the AVO Syncro.
Sean: My 17th Anniversary is coming up. I’m going to Galena and I am going to smoke the most expensive cigar they have.
Lane: Love the Palio cutter
Sean: I really like my Xikar Xi2
