As the fall air is upon us it's time to start thinking of those long walks with a good cigar. I personally love a good cigar; heck I even get a few Cubans once in a while (although not a many as I wish). I have a few H. Upmann's left in my humidor and they are just ok. A tough draw and too mild. I have enjoyed a few Partagas last month and even my last Cohiba (Sligo VI), boy do I wish I could get more of them. I know some people are grossed out by cigar smoke, however it is a nice relaxation for me to take a long walk with a good smoke. Sometimes it is the only escape I can find.
I remember a few years ago with the big cigar "boom" it seemed everyone was smoking. That was good to get people to try different cigars because their favorites usually were sold out. Today, it is a bit back to "normal" and one can find a lot of variety at the local cigar store (if you are luck enough to have a cigar store near you). So, if you are the golf course or just walking around town or sitting on your back deck, take a nice cigar and relax and enjoy it. Having a nice cigar makes you slow down in this fast paced world and actually enjoy the moment, surely we all deserve a little down time from the rat race...
