And The Oscar Goes To………..

Wow, imagine an event in Hollywood taking place where everyone expected ” Avatar ” to clean up and ” The Hurt Locker” makes a clean sweep…. I have to admit that every now and then I get wrapped up in all of the glitz and glamor and watch every award given out.  About one third into the show I went to the humidor and picked Cohiba Robusto, my favorite, and poured a shot of Oban with a bit of cold water and went back to the couch.  It occurred to me about two thirds through the cigar that, although I was ecstatic with the taste of the fine Robusto, I started remembering all of the outstanding cigars I have been smoking lately.

Not long ago I mentioned how fantastic the H. Upmann No. 2 has been treating me.  This one has taken me by surprise lately and deserves to be mentioned, yet again, as one of the finest cigars coming out of Cuba today.  Trevor at “The Vancouver Cigar Company” has a box from ’07, sold me a few, and I can’t believe the complexity and how wonderfully constructed this piramide is.  CALL HIM !!!! Try to get some from this box.. You WON’T regret it!!!!!

I was thinking about all of the Bolivar Royal Coronas that I’ve smoked lately as well and I don’t think I’ve ever had a RC from that brand that has ever had a draw issue or has ever let me down in the taste department!!!! Very Very consistent…. Perhaps the most consistent Cuban cigar there is !!!

Another award winner is the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No 2.  As I was smoking the Cohiba tonight I thought about the intense flavors in the Hoyo and I was dumfounded as to how we sometimes take the lesser priced cigars for granted.

Well, I guess I have to go and stand in line now and see “The Hurt Locker”…
