Marevas (2/5)

  1. One of my favorite of all time cigars. I have a box and a half left.
  2. Neither of us is hiding a body. No divorce papers have been filed. So, I’d say we are doing great.
  3. We went skiing in British Columbia the first week of March for the first time in ten years. Apparently, I decided I needed all new ski gear in case we go again next year. New skis, boots, jacket, pants and gloves. My wife is not happy, but this is the time of year to buy ski gear. It’s all on sale!
  4. I actually like ATL. Yes, it is spread out, but it is very easy to navigate. As long as I have one hour for my connection, I’m in good shape with no running. Their Global Entry is a breeze. From plane door opening to immigration to baggage claim to being in my car is always less than an hour.
  5. Old ERDM for sure. The older they are, the more it comes out. The skinnies can take on a predominately tea flavor profile. Very mild, but a great morning smoke.
  6. As an update, I received my cutter yesterday. Actually, I received a new cutter as a replacement. Right at 4 weeks from door to door. i am going to send in a second one for sharpening next week.
  7. This was the first cigar out of a box that has been sitting for 3 years. The box still smells like it did when I checked the cigars upon arrival three years ago, and I took the first one off the top. The pre-light draw was firm, but not too tight. Nice tobacco flavors coming through. With a nice drink, I lit it up and settled in for a nice smoke. First third was actually a little rough. The draw and burn were fine, but there was a rough back end flavor that I can only describe as coffee grounds. Definitely coffee flavor, but very bitter on the back side. By the second third, the bitterness had subsided and I started picking up on the Cohiba grassiness (sp?) and some woody flavors. The bitterness was still lingering, but not as prominent as before. When I got to the final third, the woody flavors became more pronounced and the grassiness settled into the background. The bitterness abated for the most part. Overall, I was not impressed with this cigar. It is younger than I would normally smoke it, but I wanted to see how the box was progressing. I will let these sticks sit for another year before I break out another. I’d give it a mid-80’s grade. As a side note, I am not a big Cohiba fan. I have boxes I have purchased over the years because, well, they are the marquee cigar out of Cuba. My preferences, in order, are ERDM (?‍♂️), Bolivar, Montecristo and HdM. I enjoy Cohibas from time to time, and my Cohiba preferences are the Sig V, Sig III and Espléndido.
  8. I am smoking one now from 2015, and I think it needs more time.
  9. I sent my cutter in last month. All I have gotten is an email saying they received it. I’m not worried enough about it to get on the phone, but I will post back here when I get it (or its replacement) back.
  10. Mead (Autumnal,of course) Sangria Patron Tequila shots peppermint espresso from Starbucks
  11. Yep, one of those days where a long smoke and a few drinks will make my evening better. Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro from ‘07.
  12. My Rolex (though not near as nice) has been in my nightstand for years. I realized I never looked at it for the time, so I quit wearing it.
