One year anniversary @ The Cigar Box plus Weekend Review; September 26, 2009

On Friday night (September 25th, 2009) we left work and dropped by The Cigar Box for their one year anniversary. It's located at 2910 Rosewood Drive in Columbia, SC.

One of the owners, Grant Collins behind the counter:

The humidor is well stocked

The front area has a small sitting area but it's very comfortable:

Of course, I enjoyed the nice chairs!
Me and my Oliva V:

There is also a back bar area. We got there early so the crowd had not arrived yet. Here are some pics of the back area:

Stop by and see Jessica or Grant anytime you're in downtown Columbia.
Weekend review
This weekend I'm reviewing another cigar sent to me by "Lumbo".
5 Vegas Limitada 2008 torpedo (6x52)

Nice looking, dark cigar. Appears to be well made. Nice peppery cinnamon notes initially which quickly changed to sweet maduro flavor. Quite a bit of pepper, which I love. At the midpoint the cigar still has the sweet, cinnamon flavor with a nice amount of pepper. The finish is nice but could be a little richer. The burn was a little off and had to be touched up several times, but the flavor is very good. Medium bodied. Good cigar but the uneven burn pulled down the score.
Score: 89
