Man last week went by fast and I smoked quite a few good cigars. This week I will be taking a look at some new smokes and some old favorites. Starting tomorrow I will be smoking;

-La Flor Dominicana 1994 Robusto (the newest release from LFD for their 20th anniversary)

-Padron 1926 No.35 Madruo (probably my favorite Padron of all time, smoking the 50 Years next)

-Crux Passport Corona Extra (my first of this blend, I wont mention the Skeeterz I'm smoking because its the size of a cigarette)

-H. Upmann Connoisseur A (I just opened the box after 6 months in the humidor)

-Nomad 2012 LE Fugitive (this is a huge perfecto that Shooter sent me a few months back) 

That is what I will be smoking this week, what about you guys? Let me know you are smoking or your thoughts on any of these smokes.

Very curious about the LFD 1994

Crux Passport

Nomad.........never heard of the LE Fugituve

So far this week I had the 

La Palina Classic Robusto....very nice, creamy and mild lunch break smoke, although I think it was a 56 rg, so it was a little bigger than I like.

Alec Bradley Prensado BP Robusto....had a very easy draw, good flavors, but I still like the Tempus best in the AB line.

Today I will have an 

Alec Bradley Vice

Surrogates Tramp Stamp (my fav Surrogate)

NIce! I'm not a AB fan, you dont want to hear what I think about their cigars :)

I am very curious about these LFD's too....Halfwheel gave them a 94 and The Cigar Authority a 93.For $6 cigar that celebrates their 20th is a deal. Im excited to have the Crux line right down the road, I hope they're good!

Yeah, you are lucky to have Crux so close to you

I know I'm stoked! they got the whole line it!

Let us know about the Passport and I will smoke one of the Classics this weekend. The Skeeterz was a good little pop for what it is.

I will Doc, I think I am going to smoke it this weekend becasue a buddy smoked one from the same shop and told me they need a little rest. So Saturday I will post and let ya know how KILLER they are!

Sounds like a plan. So, I will just respond to your post with my take on the Classic.

The draw, burn, ash, smoke, performance, and construction on the 1994 LFD were perfect/flawless/immaculate! The flavors weren't all the exciting but they were very enjoyable...nice sweetness, creamy, very very mild pepper though retro, earth, tangy cedar, citrus, and a hint of leather. Very good smoke but probably the best all around construction on a cigar this whole year, which is a breathe of fresh air considering the problems I have ran into lately. A must try! 

So I smoked the Padron No. 35 Maduro and I can tell you for certain that they never ever let you down. Always the perfect all around construction and that coco/spice that lasts for days on the palate. IMO these are a consistent 92+ cigar and are worth the $10, not to mention I love the 4x48 size its probably my favorite (rothschild, short corona exta, petit robusto).

Can't wait to finally smoke a killer cigar tonight, didn't get home til way late last night so I couldn't smoke a stogie. Havn't quite decided what I will be smoking yet.

Tonight I will be smoking the LFD 1994, I will post my thoughts in a few hours...Tomorrow I will be smoking the Passport Corona from Crux.

I "tried" smoking the Crux Passport Corona tonight and all I have to say is that it wasn't ready to be smoked. Of the 44rg 30 of it was a tunnel, hot, crispy burn.....bummer. If you have these let them rest for just a bit longer (regular production sticks) because mine needed something, I'm hoping it is rest. Anyways I smoked the Tatuaje La Verite Vintage 2009 and it was amazing like always, getting better/smoother with age, top 3 Tat's of all time!
