Corona Project. It’s aged well now and it’s coming soon, I swear! @leafbeanvegas @houseofemilio (at The Leaf Cigar Lounge)
Smoking a birthday lancero with the original Don Rodrigo. Reminiscing about racing Monte Carlos and Chevelles on the Palisades.

This is awesome…
If you know about cigars you know how challenging it is to keep things consistent. You know that taste is very subjective and varies widely and that marketing dollars drive a lot of what people think are great cigars.
Despite all of these challenges I’m happy to announce that Rodrigo Cigars La Fortaleza made Halfwheel.com Top 25 Consensus list for the second year in a row. http://halfwheel.com/2013-awards-consensus/
Now… the one thing that really stands out to me is this quote:
"Only seven out of the top 25 cigars were not new and the only one that did not receive some sort of extension was the Rodrigo La Fortaleza."
So even with nothing new to hype, the La Fortaleza was STILL recognized by the blogger community as one of the Top 25 cigars of 2013.
Bottom line is that cigars come and go, but La Fortaleza has great staying power.
Huge thanks to the blogger community, House of Emilio and to Tabacalera Ventura @venturahenderson for consistently making the Rodrigo Cigars great!
About to crack this son’bitch wide open… @venturahenderson @bmwmark @leafbeanvegas (at El Gaucho)
Tooting my own horn, but I simply do not know of a better lancero.
