E.P. Carrillo La Historia

E.P. Carrillo La Historia

Cigar

Today I have a cigar that has been hanging around my humidor for a little while, the E.P. Carrillo La Historia. I honestly can’t even remember the price I paid but it seems the range is around $7-$9. I also do not know the size but I am pretty sure it is the Dona Elena at 6 1/8 x 50. If not then it would be the El Senador at 5 3/8 x 52. To me …

Cigars and Talk

Cigars and Talk

Sunday was a beautiful day here in Pennsylvania. It was so nice, in fact, that I couldn’t resist the urge to fire up the lawn tractor and and tame my wildly growing lawn. With my wife and daughter out visiting my mother in-law, it was a perfect opportunity for me to light up a cigar and putz around the lawn.
