    Yesterday was a Romeo Y Julieta short Churchill Habanos and a CAO MX2 from 2008.

    Today, Gran Habano #5 and a Rocky Patel old world reserve along with some Balvenie doublewood 12 year single malt.

    No cigar tonight, but tomorrow night I'll be smoking an Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Flor Fina.

    Today on the drive home from work it was a Carlos Torano Casa Torano Maduro. One in a sampler pack of four Toranos. Pleasant.

    I had one of these Ashton's a friend gave to me. They come individually wrapped with cedar paper. Have you noticed a difference with this before? Does it help keep them from drying out while in box?

    Nice choice. Spanish cedar is the first choice for everything cigar related in terms of lining humidors to the individual cedar wrappers you speak of. It is first choice because of it's remarkable properties, it repels the (horror of all cigar lovers) the tobacco beetle and it is remarkably efficient at helping maintain humidity in humidors. It can absorb and add moisture as required in a properly balanced humidor. On individual cigars it imparts flavor (as it does in a humi) and it protects the wrapper of the cigar while being an attractive sales point.
    * if you ever decide to build a humi or otherwise work with spanish cedar, use
    protective masks when cutting or sanding, the dust can be very, very dangerous if
    inhaled.

    Only spanish cedar works with cigars other more popular cedar species won't do the trick and can ruin cigars.

    It's been almost thirty years since I smoked a cigar. I used to enjoy a good Don Alvaro. They're no longer available as far as I know.

    A Cuban Romeo Y Julieta Churchill (while in Hong Kong). It would be, of course, illegal to bring them back to the states.
