Review of the Cigar itself: On Thanksgiving, we often eat huge meals and want to have a nice cigar afterwards for “dessert” (although one shouldn’t forgo the nice apple and pumpkin pies that often follow the large Thanksgiving meal). A few weeks ago, when I was on Wall Street, I noticed at the Barclay-Rex Store a square, well-box-pressed cigar. It was going like hot-cakes while I was there and decided to give one a try. I grabbed one and stuck it in my main humidor. It seemed appropriate to take it out today and enjoy it.

I tasted the cap end and got the flavour of chocolate with a shadowy hint of pepper in the background. The wrapper, a deep, dark maduro ooze an aroma of rich tobacco. It took a little bit to get this lit because of how tightly pressed the tobacc was but once lit, it remained so. It has a nice a creamy flavour with hints of chocolate in the background. It remained consistent throughout the full length of the cigar.

For today, it’s good to remember all the things we can be thankful for. If we can enjoy cigars, have a job with which to buy cigars and family and friends to share with, we have lots to be thankful for, especially in this uncertain economic times we’re in. We should remember to enjoy them throughout the year as well and be thankful for every day we get, especially with friends and family. Because honestly, a cigar is just a cigar. But it becomes so much more when we can share it with those that make life more interesting. For me, I’m thankful for a lot of things in life and recently, am grateful for the BotL/SotL who I can call friend online.

And I’m grateful for those who come to read here.

Cheers and have a smoke on me.
