Wednesday was the night that was, Severe Weather hit the PHX on Wednesday Night. Dustnadoes (Dusted Devils on Steroids), Rain, Hail, High Winds, and a 30 degree drop in temps all happened within 45 minutes. We Suffered some minor damage.
But the member's of the West Valley Cigar Club, went ahead with our monthly Meet-up and Johnny Fox's Public House. While the turnout was light, we suspect due to the weather, it was always a good time.I was really looking forward to the cigar I had chosen, the RoMEo by Romeo Y Julieta. This is a new cigar from the folks at Romeo Y Julieta that had shipped to retailers earlier in the week. Unfortunately, I think the heat in the car of the Rep from Altadis got to this one. We experienced a very tight draw, no flavor at all, and the construction of the cigar was extremely poor. I have another one that I am going to keep in the humidor (which is a whole other story) for a bit before posting my tasting notes. Its only fair. Right?
OK highlight of the week, Pete Johnson was in town Thursday and Friday. We all know that I am a huge Tatuaje fan. For the event I chose the Tatuaje Cojonu 2012, already a great cigar but imagine what it will be like in 2 years with age! It was a true pleasure to meet Pete....Here's to continued success and a thanks to Vartan for having Pete at Ambassador Fine Cigars--West Valley.
