An OR El G. They hold up to age well. The retro wasn't as fruity as when they were fresh so I won't be aging any on purpose
I had one of last night. I only have one left [emoji45]
I was going to mention before that my local B&M has all varieties. Got an email from cigar hustler just now that they have them in stock.

Went down the moutian today to the little fabrica to pick up some smokes. They are not a retail shop, but will sell what they have available. They had just shipped out a big order and didnt have much left, just a few seconds, but they are quite tasty...sort of like Panamanian Papas Fritas.

And, Sam Adams has been showing up on the shelves here...nice EOD combo.

Homeroll, digging this one! Going to need to roll more of these tonight. Sweet caramel, spicy red pepper, and some earthy coffee notes. I figure if I switch to a lower priming of wrapper I'll bring it down from medium-full to solid medium.

I like Sam Adams too. I used to work in Boston a lot.

Their Rebel IPA has been showing up on the shelves here too. Unlike many American IPAs, its well balanced.

Yahoo! A local shop has started carrying Rana Dorada and Casa Bruja brews. Both good Panamanian craft brews not available in local (to Volcán) retail shops before.

Having a Pils and a local stogie...and fook its damn chilly outside...rainy cold day.

I remember when you could get kegs of unpasteurized/unfiltered SA Boston lager and ale in special local areas. That was really good and a really long time ago :)

Goldie toro last night at the shop. Grabbed it to smoke since it had a crack at the head. It was pretty tasty but I don't feel it deserves the $20 price of admission

You got one?!! Sweet. My elk hunt starts in two weeks. Stoked!
Absolute biggest rush of my life. Got the call from the processor that my meat is ready for pick up. Will head up north to get it Tuesday.

This afternoon I'm wrestling an Anaconda and it is good. Really good. Crazy slow burn, amazing flavors, well worth the price.
