Ben’s Week In Smoke – No. 19

It’s been quite awhile since I last published a Week In Smoke so I figured, after our small vacation after IPCPR, now is a great time to start them back up again.  Here is a list of some of the cigars I’ve smoked over the past week or so.  Some are some old favorites and some are new.  These are not reviews on the cigars, but just my quick thoughts on them.
