    Just a heads up for people that are into Full Bodied, Spicy sticks. Over on cigar.com there are these new Nicaraguan Primeros . A wheel of 50 for 50.00 WITH LIGERO FILLER!


    The third addition to the Primeros line, Nicaragaun Primeros, is a full bodied blend of Nicaraguan ligero in one economically priced, premium cigar.

    The Primeros line is a groundbreaking concept in the cigar industry, offering a whopping 50 cigars for just $50.00. By finding excess inventories of premium tobacco throughout the world and partnering with some of the best factories to fill production, this incredible value brand is entirely hand rolled. Primero, which translates to “first” in Spanish, is named such because each cigar is the quality of a first, but sells for the price of a second.

    The Nicaraguan Primeros is one of the fullest bodied offerings in the Primeros line. Blended with a ligero filler and an Ecuadorian wrapper in one of Nicaragua’s most respected factories, the Nicaraguan Primeros captures the dry and spicy, robust flavors that Nicaraguan cigars are known for.


    I just picked up a wheel and will let you all know the skinny as soon as I get them.

    DAMN that would last me months, but just to drop 'em in a nice humi environment to rest would be a great investment at a buck a stick.

    I puffed out one of these on Sunday night with a glass of Cognac (my favorite pairing) and some iPod cuts from the jazz thread:



    It was around 6 bucks, and was real nice. Had a sort of smooth "airy" draw, but burned perfectly with a long, solid ash, and tasted great. I enjoyed the aftertaste the next day too. Think I'll pick up a few more.

    By the way, I'm still hoping for some Cuban suggestions. Leaving next Monday, so please let me know if you can. Thanks.

    alright. Well I got them. I would jsut like to say that i was not expecting anything more than what I get with a Spanish Honduran Punch Second when I paced my order for the Niguragan Primeros. The Ligero filler (which I love in cigars like Oliva Series V and La Flor Dominicana and others) caught my attention though and for a buck a stick I couldn't pass up a chance to buy a bundle of churchill (7x50) sticks. It was lauded as a full bodied spicy cigar and that is exactly what my palette enjoys. Right up my alley as it were. So I placed the damn order.

    Upon reciveing my order I excitedly opened the box and pulled out:




    Each individual stick was cellophane'd just like most seconds (though remember that these are heralded as firsts )

    anyway I took each out of the cellophane and stacked them up:



    They had a nice wrapper. No noticeable flaws and even the caps looked well rolled.. They came perfectly humidified and had a nice oily wrapper and upon inspecting the foot you could see the 2 shades of ligero leaf.

    So I moved all my smokes into another humidor and used 2 of my others for the wheel:



    With that done it was time for the moment of truth. would these be as good as the Punch's ?

    I went outside and put on Bob Dyalns Theme Time Radio Hour (The perfect amount of time it takes for me to enjoy a churchill) and cut the cap and took a prelight draw. perfect. tasted a little pepper on the wrapper but not too much (or enough in my opinion like a chisel or a camacho )

    So I toasted it , took a small draw and let it set for a minute as per my custom and made some tea (this helps with the cigar breath ya know?)

    I took the first draw and a very bold pepper hit the back of my pallet and I blew out a wonderful White plume of smoke. Thoughout the cigar the ash was nice and white and until about halfway the smoke remained a billowy white.

    Interestingly enough at about the halfway mark the smoke turned a simple gray.







    In the end I almost nubbed it. I have to endorse this cigar whole heartedly for people that want a nice daily smoke that enjoy full bodied cigars with some spice.

    Enjoy!

    This past weekend I went over to a buddy's house and we smoked a couple cigars. The first was a Don Pepin Garcia Blue Label. I don't know the name but it was toro sized, approx. (6X50). The first few puffs were quite harsh and bitter, however that may have been due to the beer I was trying at the same time. After a while I liked the cigar a lot. I can't really explain it, but it had that hallmark taste of a cigar I know I'll like. Enough spice to keep the cigar interesting, but not too much that it sets my mouth on fire. It got a little bitter at the end and ended up putting itself out.

    After that I tried a stick that my buddy gave me. It was a La Caya (never heard of it before). Cedar wrapped and belicoso sized/shaped. Much like the Pepin, this cigar was a good smoke. Not as powerful, more on the medium side of things. This cigar did not get bitter at all even when it was getting down to the last couple inches. I would have nubbed it had it not been dinner time.

    I'll toss in a recommendation for the Trilogy line by Alec Bradley. The corojo is a personal fav. Also the Sancho Panza double maduro is a top notch smoke for small coin.

    Hey Hatter, have you heard about the El Cobre? I'm planning on getting a few and if I do I will send you a sampler.

    Any recommendations about a good drink or spirit to go with a smoke? My ritual is a nice ribeye from Bristols with a dirty martini and a good stogie for desert. I opened a bottle of Cuvee VSOP Rare and I think it's what made me miss the 3rd period last night.

    No I haven't heard of those yet. Cool send me a few . I'll PM you my address

    As far as a spirit I was always partial to single malt scotches to go along with my cigars. My personal favorite because of its one of a kind taste palette is Laphraoig. and Laphraoig. Some here are more partial to Oban but for my money it's laphraoig and laphraoig 10 year. Hell, I think they have a 25 year old as well
