Lane: Welcome into the Cigar Cafe today. Harris and I are recording in the studio today at Cigars & More in Birmingham, Alabama. How are you guys today?
Cigars we are talking about on the show today:
Tatuaje SNS Corona member exclusive 2
La Antiguedad TAA special release
Saints and Sinners
Arturo Fuente Opus X
Sean: Harris sent me a great cigar pack this week. Included Davidoff Escurio one of each size, AVO Greatest Hits limited edition sampler.
Sean: Do you guys hoard cigars? I do
Harris: I save a few special ones
Sean: I smoked the AVO heritage then AVO classic. I’m trying to decide what order to smoke the cigars from the AVO greatest hits sampler.
Lane: My favorite of the Avo Greatest hits sampler is the 80
Harris: My favorite is the AVO Trompeta
Lane: I just bought my first Arturo Fuente Opus X cigar. The Perfection 3ct. tin. I’m excited about it.
Sean: Harris has a regular and a special humidor
Sean: I accidentally lit a kristoff sumatra backwards in the dark and started to smoke it. It ruined it.
Arturo Fuente Opus X
Harris: Camping story about Opus X cigars
Lane: I wanted to ask Sean about Nat Sherman. The 660 and 556 sizes smoked so different even though they are the same blend. It is interesting how completely different 2 sizes can be within the same blend.
Sean: I experienced the same thing with the Camacho Barrel Aged cigars. The sizes taste different.
Lane: AVO Domaine 50
Sean: Punch is stupid
Lane: I like the V cut or Palio cutters. Palio is my favorite
Sean: I really like the Xikar Xi2
Lane: Check out the Wolf V cutter. Very good inexpensive V cutter
Sean: Retrohale light is my new favorite way to retrohale a cigar
Lane: Like a french inhale?
Sean: I had a cigar worth mentioning. Jericho Hill by Crowned Heads. It has a Mexican San Andreas wrapper, great burn. The draw was a little loose but ok. It is made in the My Father factory but to me does not have the characteristics of the My Father branded cigars. I’m smoking the Perdomo Champagne next.
Notre Dame vs. Clemson – Sean thinks Clemson wins
Auburn vs. San Jose State – Auburn finally getting a break this week
Alabama vs. Georgia – Must win game for both teams. Should be a great one
Utah vs. Oregon – Bad loss for Oregon, Utah very good. Oregon QB not working out.
