On Sunday I was talking with Jerry via Twitter and got word that the weather in Maryland was no better than here in PA. As a result, Jerry didn’t think he was going to be able to pull off his Tuesday review. In order to cover him, I got to work on smoking a cigar for a quick short ashes video.
The cigar I selected was one that I know he was fond of at one time, the Maria Mancini Natural. This stick sports a Habano 2000 wrapper. As I wrapped up the video and began prepping it for encoding, Jerry made mention of taking the Thursday spot in order to keep his two reviews this week. This prompted a message from Tom (of the Tom and Ed show) offering to get the guest review uploaded two days earlier than expected.
So rather than uploading the video I worked out for Tuesday, I uploaded Tom and Ed’s review of the Punch Rare Corojo instead of waiting until the weekend to publish it. In the end, we had a week filled with quality content and a short ashes video that may sound a bit off as I reference Tuesday.

Nice review Walt! I agree some cigars do not do well with age. I just got done with a RP Sungrown toro with a lot of age on it, not the same flavors. They were there but quite muted. By the way what did you light up afterwards? I went with a Monte petit edmundo.

Is it just me or has this comments section become really exciting over the past couple of weeks? YOU GO GIRLS…
Eric, with respect, I have three pointers for yourself:
1) When posting ideas/thoughts, use paragraphs. Your posts are damn near unreadable as they just trail on and on:
2) Get rid of the CAPS LOCK.
3) Constructive criticism — use it. Your post comes off as borderline childish. You could have made your point in 1-2 sentences.
Nice review as always, Walt.
Dear Eric Stevens,
Perhaps you should increase the dosage of your medication(s).
Also, were I you I would consider taking a remedial English class… Your spelling and grammar are atrocious.
It’s all part of the review. Sonething to talk about and observe. It may be important to some and not to others. Walt is kind of like the President. He represents all the people and covers all the issues.
I was going to comment on the Eric Stevens comment; but damn I don’t even know where to begin.
Nice review as always Walt.
Great review Walt,
and Eric, Crack is Wack
