It was a quite cigar night only the regulars attending. Conversation was normal with the hint of Archer and Tock.O playing the background. It was a perfect time to enjoy two fine cigars. The first cigar was a Rocky Patel R4. I recently acquired a box of these from StogieBoys. I had bought the Stogie Boy Living Social deal in January and decided to execute it on this box so the cost was around $11. The torpedo was very smooth and medium bodied, which I was glad for because I now have 20 of the them. The smoke lasted about 1 hour and it ashed 3 times (not bad in my book). My second choice was the Alec Bradley Tempuras (shown above). This dark oily cigar was part of sampler I had gotten for Christmas from my girlfriend's parents. This was a full bodied strong smoke. The smoke was thick and dark. It burned nice but needed to be relit a few times. I did not end up finishing the smoke because of its full bodiness and the fact that I tried it second. Out of all of the Alec Bradley's I have smoked this was the strongest, like dark chocolate. It was not bad but not a cigar I would have many of in my humidor. Next week's cigar night is postponed which is OK by me because next weekend is extremely busy.
