I don’t typically review or comment on cigars too often as that’s not what this is for, but in this instance I’m going to deviate from that.  Quite simply I thought this was an exceptional cigar and it hit all the right notes for me.  I will be smoking more of these now look at the folks below that take the time to actually review this smoke.

Normally I do one post a week on a Wednesday but today I felt it was necessary to do an extra one.  Two years ago I was gifted this cigar on my wedding day.  I had intended to smoke it last year but circumstances didn’t permit and I didn’t want to smoke it on a day other than an anniversary.  With that being the case I smoked & photographed this cigar today on my second anniversary.  You can also see by the pictures the cigar kind of blew up on me, it was a little bit plugged and I cracked it using a draw poker which was kind of a bummer.

I’d also like to thank my wife for putting up with me this long and for humoring some of my more eccentric ideas.  Thank you and I love you.
