FredericksBURG!

 7/21/2017 8:00 PMCigars

​Just got home after my first full week (mostly) on the job. Really looking forward to it, although the drive home in the afternoon was pretty long.

Enjoyed a nice Perdomo Habano on the drive home. Excellent cigar.

​Had a great evening tonight at Rt. Wor. Ralph Clark's homecoming, enjoyed a very nice cigar: Perdomo Reserve Champagne Sun Grown​ from Emerson's. Gave it five stars.

Decided my last birthday present would be a sampler pack from www.famoussmoke.com​. I have heard their ​ads on XM radio for a year or more now, and I thought, 20 sticks for $20, worth a shot, right?

I will post the results on my Cigar rating page. If at least four or five are any good, I guess it's worth it.​

ACID Toast cigar

A friend had ​recommended I try ACID cigars. I was pleasantly surprised by the ACID Toast. I have a list on the "Cigars" tab that rates cigars I have tried, as well as Cigar-related posts on this blog. I will give this a 9.​

Cigar Ratings

I need something to track cigars, I'm starting with this.
 
BOCK Y CA - CostCo - Very good cheap cigar. $37.50 for a box of 20, $2 a cigar. Excellent for the price. I believe these were Lonsdales, based on my recent trip to JR Cigars in North Carolina.
 
Private Stock #6 - Harsh, not much flavor, unsatisfying. $3.
 
Macanudo Duke of York - Okay, nice flavor, long smoke (45 minutes) but not as good as other Macanudos. Around $6. Larger ring than I am used to now, although most Churchill cigars are good. Would pick another Macanudo.
 
Churchills last about an hour, I like a cigar to last 30 - 45 minutes.
 
Excalibur III - Strong, flavorful, good pull, long lasting, heady smoke.
 
Ashton 8-9-8 - Mellow smoke, nice flavor, a bit mild for my taste.
 
UPDATE: I bought more BOCK Y CA cigars at JR's in North Carolina, excellent deal on bundles.
 
BOCK Y CA Robusto - The shortest of the three, bold, strong flavor, lasted 45 minutes, surprising for the size. Length 4.50, Ring 50, according to JR Cigars web site. A larger ring size than some others I smoked recently, a real nice cigar overall.
 
BOCK Y CA Corona - Slightly longer than the Robusto, haven't opened the bundle yet (My cigar box runneth over, I bought three bundles yesterday). Length 5.62, Ring 45. Looking forward to trying these as well. A decent smoke, good flavor. I think I prefer the Robusto of the three, but this is comparable.
 
BOCK Y CA Lonsdale - Pretty sure these were the ones from CostCo, but even cheaper at JR's. Length 6.5, Ring 44. A good mellow flavor, but still strong. All three of these rated medium strength by JR's. My least favorite of the three. I now think the box I bought at CostCo was Double Coronas, preferable to the Lonsdale. Further consumption tells me that the Lonsdales are a little weak, hard to draw. I don't think I would buy these again, but I have a lot of each to try, so they may grow on me.

 ​​

​UPDATE 5/30/2014: See the "Cigars" tab on the site for the new info.
