Upcoming Events at Fincks!

Here is the latest from Finck's!  I pulled this from my email since I was feeling lazy/ had too many papers to grade.  The big event is the Lone Star Cigar Bash - we already have our tickets! Hurry up and get yours. This is THE event of the year in San Antonio! Not only do you get premium cigars, you support an important charity - Fisher House - home for wounded veterans and their families while they receive medical treatment. San Antonio has some Fisher houses and this event is a great way to support the veterans.
Val will try to be at this event:

New Cigars I have enjoyed

Hello Folks!

Graduate school has had me hopping busy, but I wanted to tell you about some cigars I have really enjoyed lately - to be honest, not sure how "new" they are, but they are new to me!

The top of that list is the Emilio Draig K.

I will post a photo later, but the cute dragon on the wrapper got my attention. Knotwork and dragons are not images I often see on cigar wrappers.

The flavors were earthy and complex, with a subtle sweetness and notes of crushed coffee beans and bitter cacao. Very nice and I definitely plant to buy more. Usually the smaller ring gauges are not my cup of tea, but I am all about this cigar.

The next one is the Viaje Honey and Handgrenades Shank.

The bright red wrapper caught my eye (I bought them on the same day - such a magpie sometimes)
the cigar burned smoothly, with a sweet honey flavor with subtle herbals almost. I was expecting something spicier with "handgrenade" as part of the title. It had a nice medium strength and the flavor profile was subtle and changeable enough that it kept my attention the whole time. I would say that it might not completely fit its name, but it was a very enjoyable smoke all the same. I especially liked the mild spice flavors, almost tea like.
