Last night as I was leaving for one of the local pubs to sip some scotch, I opened the humidor, reached in and pulled out a neat little cigar (5” x 48 maybe?). It had one of those “curly heads”, that had been cut down to a nub, and a dark brown, semi oily wrapper. No label what so ever, but I said what the heck and took it for the trip.
It smoked beautifully. It had dark grey, heavy ashes; a smooth - almost refreshing smoke; and a perfectly even burn. I have no idea where it came from, or how to get more, and you know what? It doesn’t matter. Sometimes mystery cigars can be amazing smokes. Take away all the marketing hype, and enjoy the cigar for what it is.
I think I need to get into blind taste testing.
