The last couple of weeks I've been smoking a few new cigars. Many are courteous of Don Mills Tobacco Superstore on Winchester Rd. in East Memphis. In your are in the area, check it out.

Anyway, last week I tried to have an Onyx Reserve from one of my humidors. Unfortunately, it was so plugged it absolutely would not draw. No bad reflection on Onyx; it happens to even the best rollers. So, I tried an El Secreto that Don sent me. It retails for only $2. Hey it isn't a Fuente Opus Opus, but it wan't a bad smoke either....

Last night I had the opposite result; I tried a Cusano M. I don't want to disparage Cusano - they are making some very good cigars - but this M didn't cut it. So, I retrieved a Avo robusto from one of my humidors. The humidor was a little too full, so it was a little dry. Nonetheless, Avo came through. A really good cigar.
