I'll smoke 'em 'cause I got 'em

Back in August, I took advantage of Cigars International 's "20 Assorted Cigars for $20" offer in Investor's Business Daily. I figured it'd be a cheap way to fill my humidor.

The first smoke I, well, smoked from my 20-for-$20 sample was a 5 Vegas 6" torpedo:

Said smoke not only burned -- for some 10 minutes -- evenly, it left a very subtle "burn" on my tongue; and each puff had hints of dark chocolate and coffee.

"This was an eight-dollar cigar!" I said to myself when it finished. Damn Cigars International for selling it to me for a buck!!!

Just so you know, I paired my 5 Vegas with a pint of Guinness, but I imagine it would go just as well with a glass of red wine ... and a steak.

NOTE: Stay tuned for more smoke reviews from my CI Collection ...

When you smoke your 'gar and sip your wine do you have your pinky finger out? I'd like to see that!
Had me a giant burger last night, made it at home. About 8 oz of ground round.By the time I was through prepping I'd used four different hot sauces! And some Duke's, and some meat sauce. Ended up having to eat the dang thing with a fork. I paired my burger with a glass of Famous Grouse!
