New to you???

Post by Stewmuse » Fri Apr 05, 2019 8:07 am

Howzabout a thread where we share cigars that are new, or simply unique, in your universe?

We got a couple new ones in at the store yesterday, one pretty straight-forward and the other, well...

The AVO Improvisation is 6x52, with Ecuadorian wrapper over Dominican binder and fillers.

The Punch Egg Roll is 4.5x50 and simply screams “gimmick” with its shaggy foot and goofy packaging. CT broadleaf wrapper over Ecuador Sumatra binder and fillers from Colombia, the DR, Mexico, and US.

I want to see pics of that egg roll when you open the box.
Boy, we've smoked it twice now on the show but the Ramon Bueso's were an excellent "new to me" find of 2018,

Oh, I doubt I’ll try it any time soon. I’m not a Punch fan, in general, and this presentation just irritates me...

Okay, I will see if I can find it and let you know. I do like the NC Punches overall with the corojo being my favorite.

Maybe it's like becoming one with the cigar. You lose yourself in it; everything fades away: your worries, your problems, your thoughts. They fade into the smoke, and the cigar and you are at peace. - Raul Julia

Good solid smoke. I would like to try a smaller ring. I am sure it would be even better.

The petite robusto is a great size. I’ve had it in the petite corona. Personally, I think it’d be great in 44.
