Sean: What are you guys smoking today?
Harris: I’m smoking the new Fratello Bianco. I looked the size up on their site. It is the 5×44 event exclusive size. This cigar was a sample given to me at the IPCPR by the owner Omar de Frias. It is off to a great start with hints of vanilla.
Wrapper: San Andres Negro
Filler: Pennsylvanian, Nicaraguan and Peruvian fillers
Price: free at events other sizes will be $8-$10
Lane: The 2015 AVO Limited Edition Classic Covers cigar. AVO releases a limited edition cigar every year around AVO’s birthday. This one is more full body than last year’s. It has hints of spice and cocoa. The AVO LE blends are my favorite of any limited edition cigars.
I’ve been looking for the new Kristoff Cameroon unfortunately it is not in the shop yet.
AVO Heritage is a great cigar in the AVO line at an every day price point of $8-$10.

What do you think about the new extra point rule?
What did you smoke this weekend Sean?
Sean: I’m a big fan of My Father cigars. I smoke my first Flor de Las Antillas. It was medium body and I loved it. Great construction, hint of spice, touch of nuttiness and a little spice on the retrohale. This one definitely appeals to a wide range of people. I definitely prefer a spicy cigar.
Harris: It should, It was the #1 cigar of the year for 2012!
Lane what did you smoke this weekend?
Lane: I smoke a large ring gauge Oktoberfest cigar by Quesada. It burned really cool because of the large ring gauge.
I also smoked the Rocky Patel Royal in a big ring gauge. To me it was a little watered down compared to the smaller ring gauges of this cigar.

Harris: today Davidoff Escurio, This past weekend Warped cigars
