2500 boxes made. They celebrate Rocky's 50th birthday. Once those 2500 are gone he is never gonna make that blend again.

Ha, you stepped in it now Jackson...

I'd probably be in for 10 or so.

Are they at En Fuego, or is there another shop out that way now?

I've never had one. Not sure what to expect.

If you have more than one, water is always the first thing that I'd drink. Then while you're smoking it, you can decide what flavor would go along good with it.

Reading up, it looks like it's made up mostly of Ligero leaf, which is very potent, and peppery. I've had Ligero wrapped cigars make me light headed before (much to my buddies amusement )

I had never heard of En Fuego, and checked out their website. Looks pretty nice, do they sell booze, or can you bring your own?

Have you tried dry boxing for a day or two before you smoke?

I have an issue with a box of Oliva series O perfectos, wrappers crack when smoking. I keep my wineador at 62 RH with beads. I am smoking one every two or three weeks to see if it changes.

Schlag -

See if you can lower your humidity to 65% or so. I've found that while 70% is the accepted norm, I have fewer blowouts and more consistent smoke quality with the slightly lower humidity.

I've used the 65% RH beads for a few years now, and they're still rock solid.

Wow, how have I been missing this post? It looks like you fellas are having a great time trying some sticks. I am just getting back into cigars as well these last few weeks. In fact, 2 other guys and I are in the process of starting a non-profit. We are going to have monthly meetings of the "Red Meat & Cigar Club of TX". During the monthly meeting, we are going to charge a $20 donation for the meeting. This will get you a steak (or other main course we decide on), all the fixings, a couple drinks, and a cigar. We are working with some suppliers to keep our costs as low as possible. In addition, we are going to hold a golf tournament and Gala each year as our main fund raiser.

ALL money raised will go to support breast cancer. We are really excited to get this thing started, and to raise money for a great cause while having some fun mixing it up. To start, our meetings will be in the Colleyville/Southlake area. If it is something you might be interested in joining, please let me know.

I never got a chance for an exceptional smoke this weekend...

Friday night, is usually "garage night" which means hang out with the guys in the garage and smoke cigars and BS. Well, garage night turned into truck maintenance night. I changed out the serpentine on my buddy's truck, then put a new tensioner assembly on mine plus an oil change and replace the clamps on my radiator hoses where it was leaking. I finished up around 11:00, and had a Fuente Sun Grown as reward.

Last night, I went with Pop to the Farm. He's been having trouble with a problem boar, who moved in during deer season, and has run off all the deer, plus is now tearing up the feeders. Pop has been patterning him the last few weeks, he's been coming in between 6 and 11:00 PM. We got in the stand by 5:30, and sat out for him until after midnight, when neither one of us could stay awake any longer. Darn thing no-showed on us. Made it back to the house in time to watch a little Feherty and crashed.

I went by En Fuego a few days ago, and met Lee I think it was, nice guy, nice shop. He said they have another out by Firewheel. I smoked an Oliva V torpedo. Not sure what I am going to smoke tonight.

Well, I just finished up my R&J Cuban with my nice glass of Crown. My neighbor had an Oliva with his Crown. I forgot to take pictures to post, so I guess I will just have to light another one up before long...

This is all that's left of tonight's smokes. Both are were bought in summer of 10.

Partagas Series S Perfecto and a Punch. They were good.

The wrappers were nice and yellow.
