I really like cigars but since I quit smoking cigarettes about 2.5 years ago I find that smoking a cigar is a slippery slope that makes me crave cigarettes. Regardless, I took the advice of a buddy who told me to go get some Flor de las Antillas Toro cigars, and I obliged. Now the question is what bourbon should I pair it with tonight in cold Lexington, Kentucky. Any recommendations?
I also used to smoke cigarettes in college (but only when I was drinking, which was basically every night), and did on occasion afterward, but cigars totally turned me off of cigarettes. Once you taste quality tobacco it's tough to consume anything else, though I do realize cigarettes are more about the 'fix' than the flavors.
RP 1990 Vintage torpedo out on the front porch on this absurdly warm evening. I know what's comin', so I'll enjoy this balminess one more time, before the yuk that most everyone else is experiencing makes its way here, to the Peach State.
