    Good luck. Love those Sopranos. My friend still has a box of the Soldiers in his humidor. I have to settle for the new “consigliere”. Enjoy.

    I found an online retailer that still had some back in February 2015. They were only selling them in 5 packs. I bought 2 of them at the time. Wish I could have afforded more at that time. I still have about 4-5 left. I only smoke them on a rare special occasion. I plan to only smoke this one when I hit a royal on this trip.

    I like the Consigliere but it is not close to the Soprano. I bought a box of them when they first came out. I still have about half a box left.

    Thanks!

    Once I get to the airport and through security I will go in to detail on the sticks I have pictured and answer your other questions. Didn’t want you to think I was putting you off.

    Thanks. Good luck to you on your trip later this week. Keep an eye out and say hi if you see me. Hopefully I am wearing the same smile that is in my earlier pic.

    Checked my bag. I didn’t prepay for a seat but was given an aisle seat so I will take that for my first win. Now sitting at the bar pre security line with my customary preflight beer. Generations White Ale.[​IMG]

    Hopefully I can do this right by you on my phone. Starting at the top I have two different My Father cigars. The smaller one is a My Father Le Bijou 1922 petite robusto and the other is a My Father La Promesa corona gorda. Both probably run between $9-$12. The Juarez Would be a robusto and I think it ran around $9. The Camacho is a Mastef Built Series Imperial Stout Barrel Aged. So the tobacco leaves were aged in imperial stout beer barrels. I think that might have been around $10$11. The small four that are all the same are Man O War Puro Authentico corona size. Online only and run about $4 per stick. The CAO is a Soprano robusto size. They have been discontinued but I think they cost me roughly $5 per stick. The last one is a Ave Maria Reconquista. They retail for $20 per stick but you can find them online sometimes for less than $10. Last, the tin of Macanudo cigarillo. Pretty much the size of cigerettes for a quick smoke. I think that Tim cost me $15-$18. I have never had them before.

    I use a guilitine cutter but sometimes like a v cut. I usually use a torch lighter but a soft flame lighter like a big or zippo works to.

    Hopefully this answered some of your questions. Tough to type this all out on my phone. If you have any other questions or would like more detail, please let me know. I love talking cigars.

    Made it through security. No extra poking, prodding or probing. Kinds feel disappointed. I was kinda hoping for a quick reach around this time through.
