“Smoked Up” No.77

The past week has been a hot and muggy one here in South Mississippi. Every day there has been an afternoon rain shower that almost ruined my afternoon smoking plans. Although the rain didn’t last long, the 95+% humidity did. With that being said, I didn’t smoke many cigars this past week. Mainly I smoked the CAO and Flying Dog Brewery pairings. I did get another tattoo this past Friday on my arm. It was an addition to one that I had gotten done three years ago.



Cigar Views



Senorial by Jose Blanco: After Jose Blanco left Joya de Nicaragua, he went on a world tour. Seeing this, I figured he was tasting the world of tobacco and was planning a cigar blend for him or another company. That was just it, he started his own company with the “Senorial” being his first blend. This cigar was high on my radar this summer and was actually excited to see it on the shelves at my local B&M. This was a pretty tasty medium bodied smoke that I figure would be a bit more fuller. If you like a nice Dominican cigar, this is definitely a cigar to try. Had nice very smooth wood, light black pepper with an ample sweetness on the back half of the draw.


CAO OSA Sol and Flying Dog “Snake Dog” Pairing: I have never been a fan of either the OSA Sol or an IPA beer. I have had a few experiences with each and they just didn’t meet my expectations. I never tried pairing the two, but they worked out fairly well actually. It was a good pairing in the sense of the pairing. The beer and cigar by themselves are still “iffy” in my book. Check out the review here.


MX2 3

CAO MX2 and Flying Dog “Pearl Necklace” Oyster Stout Pairing: For a while, I strayed away from the MX2. With a few bad experiences with the Camacho Triple Maduro, the MX2 was low on my radar. Then, I got ahold of a MX2 and I really enjoyed it. I have never had an Oyster Stout, so this was going to be an interesting pairing. The pairing was just that, an interesting one. I really liked the pairing so check out the review here.
