Today I had a Hoya de Monterrey Dark Sumatra at Addison Cigar & Tobacco. The Dark Sumatra is one of the fullest flavored Hoyo de Monterrey blends, featuring an extra fermented dark wrapper.
A line extension from Hoyo de Monterrey, this extra-rich cigar called "Dark Sumatra", is named after its wrapper tobaccos, which are hand-selected from the very darkest and richest Ecuadorian sun-grown, Sumatra seed leaves. These choice, extra-dark Sumatra leaves are then aged in "tercios", wood-textured bales made of thick, dried palm leaves.

Now that I have a 100ct hummidor, its now a challenge to decide what cigar to have. So I picked one out at random. I came out with a Oliveros XL for MEN. So off to the ESL I went to light up this manly cigar. It turned out to be a great smoke. The draw and burn were flawless throughout the whole smoke. At first I was primarily picking up heavy cocoa flavors which turned into a good black coffee. The ash was very white and firm. I was able retro-hale and blow out through my nose without the feeling that someone had kicked me in the face. I took it all the way down to the nub and only got bitterness in the last quarter.

Today I smoked the Oliva Serie O maduro at the Executive Smoking Lounge nearby the workplace. The Oliva is an all Habano Puro constructed with Nicaraguan Habano fillers and binders. It is finished with a Sun Grown Habano wrapper giving this mild smoke a rich taste of spice and cedar. The robusto size stick measures a standard 5 x 50. The draw was easy and smooth. The burn was even and the construction was top notch. The cigar was firm to the touch and the oily wrapper made it feel like a velvet gem.

The cigar I picked for today was one of my favorites a Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Epicure from CigarBid.com. 5/25x50 size.
The Excalibur is the premier line from Hoyo De Monterrey, with top-quality Connecticut shade wrappers and the very finest fillers. The Excalibur Epicure features the full-flavor and strength of the regular line, with a rich, creamy taste.

I must disagree with this rating, I thoroughly enjoyed the cigar. It was smooth, mild and was consistent in its taste and burn throughout.
For today's cigar I decided to try something a bit different. I pulled a Tabak Especial Corona Negra ( $5.39 ) from my Rocky Patel Sun Grown 100 humidor. The pre-light aroma was definitely of light coffee and some sweetness. The Tabak is an extra-dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper which envelop a Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan Criollo filler leaves. This cigar was a interesting change from my usual cigars. A good cigar to cleanse the pallet with a good coffee.

A very dark and cloudy day today, so I was afraid I would not be able to get outside today. But the weather held off and I was able to escape the cubbie for the refuge of my stogie spot.
Today I had a Rocky Patel ITC 10th Anniversary from 2 Guys ( Not available on the Website ).
From what I have googled, ITC is Indian Tabac ( Cigar or Cameroon ?) The email for Rocky Patel is info(AT)indiantabac.com
This is the company’s first Nicaraguan Puro using binder and filler tobacco from 3 different regions in Nicaragua: Jalapa, Esteli and the Condega Valley. The Wrapper is a Cuban seed corojo, also grown in Nicaragua. The cigar is flavorful and elegant with a spicy flavor and complexity

Today I had what I thought was going to be a fairly good cigar. It was a Rocky Patel Sun Grown, $32.99 for a pack of 5 from Famous Smoke Shop. The pre-light aromas were good and familiar from past RP's. After lighting it started off good but then it went very bitter and harsh and never seemed to recover. I was very disappointed with this stogie being a fan of things RP. It could be just me but I don't think I would buy this one again.
