Cigars!


Recommended Posts

My husband enjoys a campfire cigar occasionally. 

I have no idea what kind. My beloved fil enjoyed them on our sailing trips, back in the day. I just tried to stay upwind. I don't think his choices were very "aromatic." 

If we ever share a campfire, I'll tell you a long story about a tropical storm, a small airport, innumerable flies, and almost landing on a coral reef that didn't show on the (hand drawn) charts. Plus, hunting down cigars on a very primitive village off the coast of Honduras. And, bread. It's a very long , but funny story.

Years after Tommy (my fil) passed, we'd still find little cigar stubs hidden on fence post joints, corners of the garage, etc. 

Thank you for the memories.  He was my pal, and a great guy.

Cigars.  I’m a non-smoker.  However, I have smoked a cigar on special occasions.  I worked with a guy a few decades ago that was much older than me and very old school.  When invited to dinner at his house (we lived in Belgium at the time, mid 1990s) after desert it was cognac and cigars.  We both retired to San Antonio and we’ve had dinner a couple of times years ago while his health was good and the evening ended with cognac and cigars.  Good memories.  Mike

I'll have to admit,  I smoked a few "puros" in Spain, as a college kid. After dinner, pretty much as a challenge.  Glad I didn't turn green....though I felt my stomach revolting.  

The memories are great. Thanks, guys, for the thread and responses .

ScottyGS,

That sounds great!  La Flor Dominicana makes some nice cigars, had a chisel with my brother last year, it was great.

OK, so when my wife asks me where the "burning old socks" smell is coming from, I'll have an answer.

I could be tempted by a Monte Cristo #2 from Habana, but other than that, I have essentially given them up.
