Ahhhh Cigars. The ultimate indulgence for sophisticated men and revolutionaries for centuries. Not many things are better than a fine Montecristo and a bottle of Añejo 7 Años Havana Club. It brings back great memories of sitting under the stars at the original Tropicana Club in Havana, Cuba watching the spectacular show while enjoying the complimentary cigars and rum. I don’t normally indulge myself when at home in Canada though. When I head to Cuba on vacation I like to spend the week puffing away and usually bring the maximum allowed cigars back over into Canada (50 pieces). I usually smoke them all within a week, and quit tobacco cold turkey for another year.
I have driven past a cigar shop regularly however, and I am always tempted to stop in and pick some up. I don’t really know much about cigars other than the few brands in Cuba that I enjoy. Here is a very helpful guide on how to choose the right cigar for your tastes. Guide created by Grant David Anderson II @ The Inverted Euphemism
