That picture of Papa Van Winkle on the opening page almost makes me want to smoke cigars again with my Wild Turkey. Is that a Cheroot (Cherut) he's smoking? I used to smoke the most delicious cigar with my bourbon, but they stopped making it 20 years ago. It was called a Torino Columbo and it was made in northern Illinois where I live. It looked like an overblown Parodi Cigar and it was fantastic. They were hand-made. Does anyone have any idea where I can find a cigar like that? They're not expensive--simply great.
