Here's to war, and revolution, southern girls, and prostitution. Here's to bastiat, hayek, and mises... Arturo Fuente and our other vises.

Prostitution? What kind of sadsack pays for his sandwiches?

So vox is hoping we forget or did he officially cede you the victor of the debate?

Vidad said...

Still... prostitution? Really? How did that make the list? GAMMA

Nate said...

This is why Vox says your sense of humor is obvious.

Vidad said...

Don't forget "dorky." That's the part I really own.

Susan said...

Your toast must be a totally Southron thing because this copperhead isn't getting the connection between southern girls and prostitution. I am sure there is one, albeit an obscure one to be sure.

enjoyed a Hemingway myself...... although the 8-5-8 is a splendid cigar as long as you don't let it get too dry.... I mean relative to other splendid cigars, some hold up when drier better than others....... drink enough whiskey and they're all pretty tolerable....

Vidad said...

My opinion: The 8-5-8 is a good cigar, but it's the Glock of stogies. Everyone knows about it and it gets overhyped.

My top brands:

Punch
Rocky Patel
La Gloria Cubana

Individual styles within those brands vary, but they're all consistently good. La Gloria Cubana is a KILLER good smoke if you like strong tobacco. They're black with tar and taste like good soil and Caribbean sunshine.

I drank the Island South of Miami kool-aid a long time ago, IMAO nothing compares to the forbidden tobacco, but TPTB have made it even harder to consistently obtain them even through the interWebz.

So I make do and tolerate the following along with the above mentioned Fuentes:

Don Pepin
Oliva
Padron
Rocky Patel

One local shop has a no band "house" brand that is good as any for me, but not available anywhere else. Have no idea where it is from or who makes it.

Was gifted an Opus X once, great cigar, but I would never buy one at the going prices.

The Punch Rothschild is a decent, go to, every day smoke.

Wait... 8-5-8 is hyped... but Punch isnt?

patrick kelly said...

Heh... Vidad says Nate smokes a Glock....lol I did....

Last weekend I ran across the oddest name for a cigar I have ever seen: MY UZI WEIGHS A TON

Of course, I had to buy a couple to try out, just for kicks. Especially since they're co-produced by the same company that makes my regular standy-by cigars, Joya de Nicaragua.

Not a bad smoke, quite a bit milder than the other JdN but still full of flavor. It's something I might have on hand as a novelty, but not something I would go back to regularly.

Vidad said...

"Wait... 8-5-8 is hyped... but Punch isnt?"

Do a random survey of people with casual cigar knowledge. You'll find Fuente mentioned plenty more. Doesn't mean it's bad, obviously. I'd take one any day.

Vidad said...

BTW... DOW 15,000!!!

I'm gonna sellllllll metals and jump in!!!

patrick kelly said...

Dollar looking stronger vs. a gallon of gas but weaker vs. DOW ? Not sure what that means, if anything. What's spot gold these days?

Res Ipsa said...

Fuente is a good smoke, so is the Davidoff. It has a lot to do with what youre in the mood for.

I like that Nate misspelled vices as "vises". Always leaves you wondering which of his misspellings are intentional. Keep 'em guessing, dude.

Funny. I have always thought the same thing about punch. Rush talked about them thus... The great unwashed assumed they could drop the name and sound like cigar people

Nate said...

As for vises... Note the name it is rhymed with.

rycamor said...

Yeah, I knowded that too, but every wan noes that rhymes depend only on pronunciation, not spelling.

rycamor said...

Although, to be entirely too particular, I believe Mises is pronounced "meezus".

Nate said...

it is indeed....

now you understand the misspelling.

vises would be vices missprounced to veesus
